Maybe you can relate..saggy eyelids, loose skin, hooded eyes…
Entering my 40’s, I started to notice more and more how my eyes were looking smaller and smaller. Often in photos, I wondered if I even had my eyes open. Both my mom and dad have an excess amount of saggy skin on their eyelids, giving them a hooded look and I was seeing my future very clearly.
I started doing some research and considering having Blepharoplasty (a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat.). While doing my research, I ran across a procedure I have never seen before, Plasmathethics.
Plasmasthetics, a revolutionary NON SURGICAL lift treatment that is highly effective and a remarkable alternative to surgery. It has been being done in Europe for years but was virtually unheard of in the United States.
Plasmathetics is a holistic approach and works by stimulating the contraction of skin fibres instantly through a so-called ‘plasma flash’. This flash – from a hand-held device with a tiny tip – evaporates superficially on the skin at a tiny point, which shrinks the skin around the eyelid. Further points are placed in a grid across the skin’s surface, pulling the skin tighter.
I was intrigued…..
With lots of research in the actual procedure of Plasmathetics, I decided I wanted to go this route in tightening my eyelids. Now to find a trust worthy technician that offers this service. And because I often have clients ask me, “Can you give me a face lift?”, I think this treatment would go hand in hand with the services I already offer.
Fast forward almost a year of doing research, I found an amazing husband and wife team that would do my procedure and also certify me so I would be able to offer this service to my clients. I was so excited!!!!
On October 2, 2018 I had my non-surgical eyelid treatment done and the very next day started my certification course.
I journaled and took several photos throughout my procedure and the days preceding capturing my healing process. Throughout the past couple years I have shared my photos and experience with many during a consultation process. I often had GOOD intentions of doing this….writing a blog to share with all, so finally HERE GOES 🙂
So here I will share with you a day by day process of having the Plasmathetics Eyelid lift procedure…no secrets, the real deal, full disclosure!
October 2, 2018 1:00 ~ Appointment Time
I had already had a thorough consultation before my scheduled procedure but still had 4 pages of paper work to fill out, including medical history and a disclosure and consent form.
Personal disclosure: at age of procedure I am 44.5 years of age
Then came the loose skin test…
Before we could get started with the actual procedure I took a 45 minute nap while the topical anesthetic did its job…but first I snuck a photo 🙂
One of the BIG things I considered when deciding to do Plasmathetics rather then having Blepharoplasty was not having to go under anesthesia and a scalpel.
Let’s get the tightening started!!!! The actual treatment started just a little after 2:00 and I was able to take a short video so you can see what actually happens.
Take note of the ‘plasma-flash’ in the video, this is where we are shrinking the skin, one flash at a time!
Wow, instantly my skin is no longer touching/hanging over my lashes! I can actually see my upper eyeliner now! I was already so thrilled with my results, especially knowing over the next 30 days I will continue to see improvement.
So a very common question I get is, “Does it hurt?”
Simple answer, I personally thought it hurt more getting my eyebrows waxed (which I clearly needed to do when looking at these photos, haha).
I am not saying it’s painless but as I am writing this 3 years later, I remember it not really hurting very much at all…maybe like someone poking you with the end of a paperclip.
Below are photos throughout the next weeks showing my various stages of healing.
Since then, I am still very happy with my results and have made several clients extremely happy with their non-surgical eyelid lifts.
If you’re looking a little tired, becoming conscious of your laughter lines, falling out of love with your sagging eyelids or simply wanting a fresher look, then Plasmasthetics could be the treatment for you.
Plasmasethics skin tightening is a fantastic anti-aging solution for those who don’t want to go under the knife and are looking for a different solution that is also more affordable.
