Sometimes the most effective improvements to our appearance are made in the most subtle of ways. Anti wrinkle treatment that works on the smallest areas and the finest lines can often produce remarkable results that leave our clients feeling years younger. At the moment, anti wrinkle treatment for fine lines doesn’t come more effective than the Plasma Pen.
The Plasma Pen
Named because it is the size and shape of a large pen, the Plasma Pen is a small device that is making a big impact on the lives of many of our clients.
It is used to resurface the upper layers of skin and does so by producing very small burns, with minimal heat trauma to underlying tissue. It is perfect for small-scale skin tightening on well defined areas, making it particularly ideal as an eye treatment.
In fact, the Plasma Pen is such an effective treatment for the eye area that it has become known as a non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is the name given to cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and general eye area. If this is something you are considering, we encourage you to reach out to us here at the Eternal Youth Clinic before you go under the knife. Depending on what you are hoping to change about your eye area, the Plasma Pen could well turn out to be a viable, surgery free alternative.
What results can I expect from the Plasma Pen anti wrinkle treatment?
The Plasma Pen generates particularly good results as an anti wrinkle treatment for fine lines on small areas. As such it can produce significant skin tightening on the upper eyelids, as well as long lasting improvement of smoker’s lines around the mouth and smile lines around the eyes. Each of these indications have striking anti-ageing effects.
How does the Plasma Pen work?
You know how bacon shrinks when it’s heated in a frying pan? It isn’t a glamorous analogy but if you imagine the plasma pen heating and shrinking your skin fibres in a similar way, you’ll have a good idea of how this treatment works. The science is simple and, by using very small, carefully controlled burns that stimulate collagen production, the risk is extremely low.
Prior to the treatment we will ask you to come in for a full, free consultation with the doctor, during which the procedure, including risks, will be explained in full. You will be given the opportunity to ask any questions that you have and will leave with a complete understanding of what you can expect on the day of the procedure and beyond.
On the day of the procedure we will numb your eyelids with anaesthetic cream for around 30 minutes, before placing pinpoint burns in the desired area.
It is important that you allow yourself time to heal after this treatment. Due to the anaesthetic, discomfort should be minimal but your eyelids will swell and you will need to allow time for this to settle, then the scabs that form over the burns to fall away naturally. After 7-10 days you will begin to see the benefits, though skin will be pink and tender. With time to heal, as well as a quality mineral makeup to cover the pink skin as it does, we are certain that you will be pleased with your long lasting results.
