Oh, those wrinkled eyelids – a sure sign of aging that’s hard to avoid when you look in the mirror or look at someone else. For many adults, the chance to get rid of that saggy, baggy skin without invasive surgery could feel life-changing. Non-surgical blepharoplasty is a truly exciting innovation in the realm of cosmetic enhancement. It can rejuvenate your eye area and your entire face.
It’s called plasma fibroblast therapy. This in-office treatment is safe and highly effective for all genders and skin types.
Your Eyes Say So Much about You
Wrinkled upper eyelids don’t just make you look older. Hooded eyes can give you a tired or furtive appearance. In some people, lax skin can even droop so much that it interferes with your eyelid function and vision. Lower eyelids can also show signs of aging with wrinkles, but poochy fat accumulations are also common.
Blepharoplasty, commonly called an eye lift, is a surgical procedure that restores a youthful, open expression by removing excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids along with fat that causes bulging under-eye bags, if needed. Not surprisingly, although this is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, it can seem a bit scary to many people.
Now, with plasma fibroblast therapy, you can get tighter, smoother skin. This is a precision treatment that is ideal for small, delicate areas – such as the eyes. Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez says it has become her preferred choice for non-surgical blepharoplasty and also for treating crow’s feet, so patients can enjoy renewed, youthful skin all around the eye area.
Surface Treatment that Produces Impressive Results
Plasma fibroblasts therapy is non-invasive. The hand-held device delivers radiofrequency energy across a plasma arc to the skin’s surface, causing tiny areas of the skin to coagulate. This process stimulates the fibroblasts within the skin tissue.
Fibroblasts are components of connective tissue that produce collagen. Aging leads to reduced natural production of collagen, one reason skin loses structure and elasticity and becomes visibly wrinkled and droopy. Renewing collagen production restores skin firmness and smoother surface appearance.
Patient-Approved for Comfort and Convenience
Treatment takes only about 30 minutes. Dr. Hernandez uses a topical anesthetic first, but patients say they experience little to no discomfort. Patients also have the option of adding platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, during the treatment. Platelets are the component of blood that carry growth factors that promote healing, so adding PRP can improve the speed and quality of recovery and results.
Instead of enduring invasive surgery and painful recovery time, patients can look forward to minimal downtime and get back to normal routine quickly.
Risk of complications or side-effects from plasma fibroblast therapy is very low because the radiofrequency energy is precisely controlled. You can expect some swelling for the first few days, and the coagulation process does produce tiny brownish scabs which will fall away after a week or so.
Patient-Approved for Results, Too
Plasma fibroblast therapy replaces wrinkled, drooping eyelids and fatty pouches with impressively smoother, tighter skin. In the blink of an eye (well, almost) you could be seeing an open, vibrant countenance that says you’re happy instead of cranky, youthful instead of old, refreshed instead of chronically fatigued.
