HOODED EYE LID TREATMENT
Plasma Soft Surgery ® (also known in the industry as Plexr or Fibroblast) is the innovative, revolutionary technology that is transforming lives worldwide. Plexr finally offers a safer, non-invasive alternative to traditional eyelid surgery whilst still delivering outstanding results to dramatically improve the appearance of unwanted hooded eyelids.
Patients that suffer with hooded eyes can often feel like their whole appearance has changed and like they’ve lost their beautiful eyes under the folds of skin. Hooded eyes can age a face beyond its years with the unwanted folds of skin sagging down over the eyes and giving a tired appearance. But, Plasma Soft Surgery® can help reverse those negative signs of ageing and give you your youthful skin back. This treatment is designed to improve skin tone and texture, giving it a brighter, more contoured and more youthful appearance. This revolutionary treatment can reverse the effects of sagging skin, and in particular, can be used to make a huge difference to skin that has sagged around the eye area.
As we age, sagging skin can form above the eye area creating a hood or ‘overhang’ that can make us lose confidence and feel that we look much older but now we can help to change that with PLEXR. At one time, to treat this complaint invasive traditional surgery would have been the only option for clients wanting to get rid of the excess skin. However, plasma soft surgery finally provides a safer, quicker and outstandingly effective alternative. But, why choose PLEXR over traditional surgery?
A surgical eye lift often known as blepharoplasty involves surgical removal or repositioning of the eyelid tissue using a scalpel to physically cut away the unwanted skin. To perform a blepharoplasty, your practitioner must be a very experienced plastic surgeon. The procedure can be carried out under general anaesthetic (or by using a combination of local anaesthetic with sedation.) Whilst Sedation and local anaesthesia are less risky than general anaesthesia, it still carries risks with it. Surgical blepharoplasty comes with a host of serious risks, as does any highly invasive surgery. Surgical risks include bleeding, excess swelling, a poor or unaesthetic result and potentially complicated healing risks. With surgery, there are additional risks of ptosis or drooping of the eyelid and dry eyes. If surgery is just too risky for you, but you still want to get rid of your hooded eyes, then PLEXR can be a perfect solution.
Advantages of PLEXR over traditional surgery to remove hooded eyes:
- It doesn’t carry the risks associated with general anesthetic
- With traditional surgery there can be a risk of blindness
- It doesn’t cut the delicate eyelid skin
- With Plexr there are no stitches required
- It is a very low risk procedure and has minimal side effects
- There is less downtime (most patients can return to work the same day after PLEXR)
- Quick, easy and cost effective when compared to traditional surgery.
Plasma Soft Surgery® uses the fourth state of matter: Plasma. The treatment is performed with dots created by the Plexr device to sublimate (change from solid to gas) the superficial skin cells on the hood of the eye. Treatment consists of multiple shots spaced closely together across the formation of the ‘hood’. The principle is to ionise gases in the air to create a small electrical arc, similar to a tiny lightning bolt, with which the hood eyelid eyelid area can be treated, without spreading unwanted heat to surrounding areas. Plexr won’t cause any bleeding or damage to the surrounding tissue which, in turn, enables the perfect plasticity of the eyelid movement immediately after the treatment meaning you can go back to your normal routine.
The results are immediate. Straight away a reduction of the excess skin on the upper or lower eyelid, as well as the shrinking of the excess skin in the external region around the eye, will be visible. Other benefits of targeting hooded eyelids are also the improvement of the expression lines at the corner of the eye and the cheekbone known as “crow’s feet”. This innovative, revolutionary treatment can help turn back the clock dramatically.
Plasma Soft Surgery® has become so popular due to being able to deliver outstanding results (similar to those achieved through highly invasive surgery) whilst avoiding the risks and complications associated with invasive procedures, such as anaesthesia, surgical resection, sutures and post operative recovery in hospital.
Results are seen instantly, with a visible reduction in the hood over the eyes observed straight after the procedure. The results of Plasma Soft Surgery® are long-lasting and permanent. You will still age naturally, but the results of the treatment will not be reversed over time.
