In the past, the only way to shave years off your face and lift your eyelid skin was to undergo an invasive procedure. Luckily, for many Americans, those days are a thing of the past. At Moderne Medical in Scottsdale, AZ, we offer a non-invasive eyelid lift that is fast, effective, and durable. Not sure if it’s right for you? Keep reading to learn everything you need to know.
How Long Does a Plasma Pen Non-Invasive Eyelid Lift Take?
A Plasma Pen non-invasive eyelid lift lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. Your treatment will take only half an hour if you are only targeting your upper or lower eyelids. Your treatment will take around an hour if you are targeting both your upper and lower eyelids.
During your initial consultation, we will review your aesthetic goals to determine how long your anti-aging treatment session will take. For example, you can expect a longer session if you are targeting your upper and lower eyelids along with other parts of your face during the same session.
How Long Should I Expect my Appointment to Last?
Expect your entire appointment to last around 90 minutes. Before your treatment, we will cleanse the treatment area. Then, we will apply a topical numbing cream that can take up to half an hour to take effect. This way, you do not feel any discomfort or pain from the heat emitted by the Plasma Pen.
What Other Areas Can I Target With the Plasma Pen?
Besides lifting hooded eyelids and eliminating the bags from under your eyes, this treatment can be used virtually anywhere else. If your eyes are your only area of concern right now, we can treat crow’s feet at the same time as your lift. This won’t add much time to the length of your session. Other parts of your face we can target include:
- Forehead lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Smoker’s lines
- Age spots
- Flat or raised moles
But it’s not just the face we can treat. We can also address deep neck lines caused by excess fat with the Plasma Pen. Moreover, we can treat scars and stretch marks on other parts of your body, such as your inner thighs or lower abdomen.
How Soon Will I See the Results of Treatment?
You will see the initial results of the treatment immediately. However, this treatment works, in part, by encouraging the growth of collagen and elastin fibers. This can take anywhere from four to eight weeks. Therefore, you will see a continual improvement in the appearance of your eyelids over the course of a month or two.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
In the case of a non-invasive eyelid lift, you will probably only need one treatment session to get the look you want. After that, you shouldn’t need to come in for a follow-up session for two to three years. The better your skin and overall health are, the longer you can expect the results of your treatment to last. Genetics play a role in the durability of your results.
But your lifestyle choices are even more important because you have control over them. To keep your skin young and healthy for as long as possible, wear sunscreen every time you go outside and try to minimize the time you spend outside between 10 AM and 4 PM. You should also stay hydrated, stop smoking, and minimize alcohol consumption.
What If I Need to Come in for a Follow-Up Session?
Follow-up treatment sessions are scheduled six weeks after the initial session. This gives your skin ample time to grow supporting structures that will lift and volumize the skin beyond the initial results of your treatment. After six weeks, you will be able to see whether a follow-up appointment is necessary or not.
If a follow-up appointment or additional aesthetic treatment is necessary, we can make an accurate judgment call regarding the extent of the follow-up. Just because you need a second treatment doesn’t mean it needs to be as extensive as your first treatment. You may only need a short touch-up. You should also wait six weeks to treat a different area.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
To determine if this is the right aesthetic treatment for you, it is important to come in for a free initial consultation. Our clients find it is a lot easier to articulate the look they want in person. You can even bring in pictures of the look you’re trying to achieve and we can show you pictures of real results we have achieved with the Plasma Pen.
During your initial consultation, we will also review your medical history and perform a physical evaluation of your health and underlying facial structures. This will help us determine if this is the right treatment for you or if you could benefit more from a different aesthetic treatment.
