The appearance of our eyes can show our age as upper eyelids start to droop and saggy skin forms under the eyes. This can also make us look tired and run down. Traditionally, the loose skin could be removed with surgery and lasers, but at Cirencester Dental and Aesthetics, our facial aesthetic practitioners can treat the excess skin safely using non-surgical Nano Plasma technology.
Plasma is known as the fourth state of matter and is described as charged particles in a gas state. The Nano Plasma device generates a precise ionised beam of plasma energy that discharges when directed close to the surface of the skin.
The plasma energy released causes instant sublimation of the skin in that area – turning the skin cells from their solid state into a gas. There is no bleeding or excess heat that would cause scar formation. Targeted excess skin is vaporised away from the surface and the remaining skin fibres tighten. The plasma also stimulates collagen production and restores the firm healthy appearance of the skin, whilst the tightening effect smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. There is no cutting of the skin and no sutures are required.
Following a consultation, our facial aesthetic Practitioners will prescribe a programme of treatment. Photos will also be taken as a reference point before treatment. This appointment is free of charge and allows you the opportunity to discuss any questions you may have. The treatment programme will include all the information you need as well as costs for you to consider, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Our friendly team will be happy to answer your questions and schedule appointments for you.
The tightening of the skin will be instantly noticeable, however, there will also be slight swelling, and at the points where the skin has been vaporised you will notice small brown scab-like marks which are crusts of carbonised cells. These crusts flake away over the next few days to reveal the tight new skin underneath, usually full healing takes two to three weeks. During this healing time it is very important to follow the aftercare instructions that our practitioners advise. We continue to take a succession of photos to note the progress of treatment and healing results.
Most patients can carry on with their normal daily routines following Nano Plasma treatment. There can be minor discomfort or swelling for up to 7 days after treatment, along with the carbon crusts that you should allow to flake away naturally. You will be provided with appropriate skincare products and advice to promote the best healing.
As with all facial aesthetic treatments at Cirencester Dental and Aesthetics we will arrange a review appointment in the month following treatment. Treatment results will be variable to individual patients, and those with a lot of excess skin may need further treatment visits to completely smooth the skin. Results will last for many years, depending on individual factors, and Nano Plasma treatment can be repeated when aging again loosens the skin.
