Say Bye Bye To Tired, Droopy Eyes!

What is a Jett Plasma Lift?

The Jett Plasma Lift is a revolutionary treatment that is used to stimulate collagen production and make your skin firmer, without going under the knife! This treatment creates an immediate tightening and collagen production, especially in areas that are harder to treat. 

While the Jett Plasma Lift can be used on any part of the skin, this treatment is specifically known as an effective method to ‘lift’ droopy upper eyelids. The skin around the eyes is quite vulnerable as it is very thin and loses elasticity faster than the rest of your face. This can be a pesky area as it is impossible to conceal and can unfortunately broadcast one’s age. 

Unlike many other plasma devices available, the Jett Plasma device used in this treatment uses a direct current (DC) rather than an alternating current which can not only scan the skin but also pinpoint certain areas. As such, this device is more versatile and can be used to cover larger areas. 

Jett Plasma is a medical device that can only be operated by trained health professionals, so know you will be in safe hands with Skinovation. 

How does it work?

The Jett Plasma treatment uses ‘plasma’, which is a slightly ionized gas that becomes charged and works to vapourises and ‘sublimates’ excess skin. 

The heat generated from the Jett Plasma device creates a response in the skin that effectively boosts collagen production and tightens the skin. 

What is it like? 

A local anesthesia will be provided, either in the form of numbing cream or an injection (depending on the treatment area). For instance, for a non-surgical eye lift your doctor will generally apply numbing cream while an anaesthetic injection is required for mole or wart removals. 

As the Jett Plasma uses heat on the treatment areas, it may cause slight discomfort, but this feeling should subside as soon as the procedure is over. However, since the eye and mouth areas are more sensitive, they may be more painful. 

What Can Jett Plasma Treat? 

As Jett Plasma does not require you to go under the knife, this treatment offers a great non-surgical alternative to many skin conditions that would otherwise require surgery. 

This procedure can be used to:

  • Reduce ‘droopiness’ in the upper and lower eye areas
  • Remove deep wrinkles or creases around the mouth and eyes
  • Remove of warts, skin tags and fibromas
  • Improve acne scarring
  • Reduce pigment spots
  • Skin tightening and lifting on the face, neck and body
  • Hand rejuvenation

What are some other benefits?

Aside from creating a lifted effect, we can’t forget that this treatment also boosts collagen production which promotes long-term skin rejuvenation.

Another benefit of this treatment is that most procedures can be done in under an hour and produce results that can last up to five years. 

As touched on above, the Jett Plasma device uses a direct current, which has been found to be more beneficial than other alternating current devices. Direct current allows for better control and the ability to deliver a continuous flow of plasma that allows for more coverage. While on the other hand, alternating current devices can only ‘dot’ the skin. Furthermore, the direct current does not create as much damage as the traditional dot method.

What can I do about sagging eyelids?

We’ve all stood in front of the bathroom mirror, noticed sagging folds of skin on the upper eyelids that didn’t used to be there and searched longingly for a glimpse of our more youthful selves.

Often it’s our tired eyes that make us look older than we feel. And that seems so unfair, doesn’t it?!

With that in mind, I’m very excited to announce that we’ve recently welcomed a new non-surgical treatment to Skinovation Cosmetic Clinic that can help ‘lift’ droopy skin and reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. Read more about the Jett Plasma treatment and book a consultation here.

So how can you reverse sagging eye areas for a younger, fresher appearance?

Eye compresses made from teabags or cucumbers
Cucumbers and chamomile tea are both high in anti-inflammatory properties that, when applied cold to the eyelids for 15-20 minutes can provide a pleasant cool down and a small, short-lived freshen up.

Drink plenty of water
When your skin is well-hydrated, it appears plumper and clear of toxins, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Read our blog post about the importance of hydration here.

Avoid sun damage
Exposure to the sun – even in short bursts like going to the letterbox – does damage to your skin. Protect your sensitive eye areas by avoiding unnecessary sun exposure, and wearing a hat and UV-rated sunglasses whenever you are outside.

Get a good night’s sleep
It sounds obvious, but that’s for a reason! Lack of sleep can cause the blood vessels under your eyes to dilate and fluids to leak out under the skin causing dark circles, puffiness and swelling.

Invest in a good eye cream
Dehydration is a major cause of wrinkles and, with the skin under the eyes the thinnest and most sensitive on our faces, it’s important we nourish it regularly. A good anti-ageing eye cream will hydrate the eye area. Depending on their active ingredients, others may boost cell turn-over, strengthen skin, or have a plumping effect that can slow the signs of ageing.

Consider non-surgical rejuvenation treatments
At Skinovation Cosmetic Clinic, we have a range of non-surgical treatments that can help you to achieve younger, fresher looking skin around the eyes. Jett Plasma, thread lifts, dermal fillers and rejuvenation treatments are potential options.
