Eye wrinkles, crepey eyelids, eyebags, and drooping skin around the eyes can make you look older and more tired than you really are. While surgery and injectables like dermal fillers and Botox can dramatically improve your look, they don’t have to be your first line of defense against signs of aging.
Thanks to groundbreaking innovations in aesthetics technology, concentrated thermal energy can be controlled to safely and effectively rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.
At Radiant Divine Medical Spa, we offer nonsurgical treatments like Plasma Pen in Cleveland to help you look younger through younger-looking eyes.
According to the Mayo Clinic, the eyelids stretch and the supporting muscles weaken with age, leading to an excess of skin that can cause vision problems. Blepharoplasty is a common solution.
Blepharoplasty normally refers to a surgical procedure for lifting sagging skin on or around the upper or lower eyelids. It’s often used to treat drooping eyelids or bags around the eyes.
Depending on the severity of your symptoms, surgery might not be necessary or appropriate for you. Treatments like AgeJet and Plasma Pen in Cleveland are fantastic nonsurgical alternatives for restoring youthfulness to your eyes.
Both treatments can get you similar results to surgery without requiring you to take on as much risk. With nonsurgical blepharoplasty in Cleveland, you also get the added benefit of skin resurfacing and increased collagen and elastin production in the treatment area.
Benefits of Nonsurgical Blepharoplasty With Plasma Pen
When operated by an expert aesthetician, the Plasma Pen device can be used to create a series of carefully planned micro-injuries that cause the treated skin to contract as it heals.
A combination of tightening skin and increased collagen and elastin production help lift the skin and reduce wrinkles around the eyes.
Enhanced Texture and Color
The controlled damage to the skin can dramatically enhance the texture and even-out coloration by stimulating the body to generate new, tighter, brighter, and smoother skin.
Using Plasma Pen in Cleveland to address early signs of wrinkles and skin laxity around the eyes can help prevent them from getting worse in the near future.
Minimal Discomfort & Downtime
Unlike laser skin resurfacing, Plasma Pen causes minimal pain and discomfort and requires less downtime. Most of our patients at Radiant Divine require about 8 days for recovery.
What is Plasma Pen?
Plasma Pen is an advanced nonsurgical treatment for treating drooping and wrinkled skin around the eyes by stimulating rejuvenation from within. It tightens the skin through a process called fibroblasting or fibroblast therapy.
Fibroblast therapy stimulates collagen and elastin production by creating controlled micro-wounds on the surface of the skin.
What is AgeJet?
AgeJet is a nitrogen-based plasma treatment for resurfacing the delicate area around the eyes. Many of our patients at Radiant Divine see improvements in wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation after only one treatment.
So, what exactly is plasma?
Let’s take a quick dip into the science of plasma. Often called the “fourth state of matter,” plasma is what you get when you superheat a gas. You might not know it, but you’re no stranger to plasma.
When you look up at the night sky, especially on that foray out of town, you’re soaking in the glow of thousands of distant balls of plasma. While not as easy on the eyes, the sun is probably the form of plasma you experience the most. And don’t forget lightning—that’s plasma too.
But as unwieldy as lightning and massive as stars may be, plasma is increasingly being used as a game-changing tool in the fields of medicine and aesthetics.
Both AgeJet and Plasma Pen use an electrical current to convert gas into plasma. AgeJet uses nitrogen, and Plasma Pen uses oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere to create a plasma arc (like tiny, safe lightning). When directed at the skin, this controlled thermal energy can stimulate your body’s natural healing and regeneration mechanisms.
While they can be used to treat some of the same concerns, plasma treatments are not the same as laser treatments.
Plasma Pen in Cleveland: The Process
At Radiant Divine, we never rush into treatment. Getting to your unique needs and goals is the crucial first step to transformation. So before you can schedule your appointment for Plasma Pen in Cleveland, our medical and aesthetic professionals will evaluate your skin using cutting-edge imaging technology. After reviewing your skin analysis and collecting the necessary information from you, we can then create a custom treatment plan and make informed recommendations for looking your absolute best.
During your Plasma Pen appointment, one of our trained experts will make sure you’re comfortable and will answer any remaining questions you have before getting started. They will then use the Plasma Pen device to create a grid of microwounds (small thermal reactions) on the skin. This grid is strategically placed to stimulate the maximum lifting effect as the area heals.
Immediately after treatment, you’ll notice small brown dots covering the treatment areas. These dots are scabs that are also referred to as carbon crusts. They form as a result of controlled injuries caused by heat. While this step in the process may seem unsightly, it’s entirely normal and means your skin is primed for healing and regeneration.
Plasma Pen treatment sessions can last 10 to 60 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
Many of our patients see significant improvements after only one treatment, but patients with more severe symptoms (such as deeper wrinkles or significant skin drooping) may need multiple sessions to achieve their treatment goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do Plasma Pen treatments hurt?
Due to how thin and sensitive the area around the eyes can be, you might experience some mild pain or discomfort during your treatment. This discomfort, however, rarely lasts longer than 1 to 2 days.
Why shouldn’t I just use an at-home plasma device?
There are a number of products being promoted online and on social media that claim to replicate the rejuvenating results of Plasma Pen. We cannot urge you strongly enough: Plasma treatments should not be attempted at home. Even if the device is comparable to Plasma Pen, improper use can cause serious, permanent damage to your skin.
Plasma Pen treatments can produce some truly spectacular results, but the key to achieving the results you want is skillful use by fully certified professionals. Doing it yourself is simply not worth the risk. Get the care (and results) you deserve from professionals you can trust.
What areas can Plasma Pen Treat?
We mostly use Plasma Pen to rejuvenate the area around the eyes, including:
- Upper eyelids
- Lower eyelids
- Crow’s feet
When will I see my Plasma Pen results?
Some of the benefits of Plasma Pen treatments can take effect immediately or very soon after your session. Improvements will continue to develop for about 12 weeks after treatment, but significant improvements often become most noticeable after about 4 weeks.
How often should I get Plasma Pen treatments?
If you need multiple treatments to meet your goals, you can get Plasma Pen treatments at 12-week intervals. After a full round of treatment, many of our patients enjoy their results for years before needing to schedule a touch-up appointment.
What should I do immediately after my appointment?
Aftercare: To get the most out of your results, we highly recommend:
- Avoiding any activity that could cause excessive sweating for 7 to 10 days after treatment.
- Not wearing makeup for 7 to 10 days.
- Refraining from using ice or cold packs on any swelling caused by your Plasma Pen treatment. Use a gentle fan instead, if needed. Excessive cooling can interfere with the body’s natural healing process and compromise results.
- Not picking at the crusts/scabs.
- Keeping your face away from direct exposure to hot or high-pressure water for 3 to 5 days after treatment.
Am I a good candidate for Plasma Pen treatments?
You might be a good candidate for Plasma Pen in Cleveland if:
- You’re relatively healthy.
- You have mild to moderate wrinkles or loose, sagging skin around your eyes.
- You have lighter skin. Plasma Pen treatments can put patients with darker skin tones at a higher risk of hyperpigmentation.
