When it comes to restoring a more youthful look, one of the biggest game changers is addressing the under eye area.
Your eyes are usually the first area to show ageing effects and a tired looking appearance including:
The use of dermal filler injectables in the under eye area can be troublesome and are best avoided unless absolutely necessary for tear trough treatment as they can create exacerbation of eye bagging and puffiness.
The good news is that we have new treatment options available that do not interfere with the delicate under eye lymphatic drainage system.
The ACCOR Plasma Pen is an ideal alternative to surgical skin tightening with a reduced recovery time, risk and expense.
$1250 for a single session
If a second treatment is desirable then a reduced price is determined based on the size of area requiring further treatment
The A|C|C|O|R Plasma Pen is a gentle less invasive alternative to skin tightening surgery. The combination of plasma and NF+ technology, currently makes the plasma pen unique, worldwide.
Plasma is the fourth state of matter following solid, liquid or gas. The principle behind plasma is that when ionized nitrogen is exposed to oxygen (air) it creates a gas. This process creates an electrical arc (think miniature lightning bolt) which can vaporise tissue without touching the skin.
This new and amazing technology allows us to deliver very precise plasma arcs to the skin without harming surrounding tissue. The treatment targets the outer layer of the epidermis (top layer of skin) creating external micro-trauma resulting in immediate contraction and tightening of the skin. This causes excess skin to dry superficially creating tiny brown, crusty carbon dots which slough off like a scab would within 5-8 days post procedure.
The lower lid area to be treated is numbed with local anaesthetic cream. Treatment involves the formation of small carbon dots strategically place to create a tightening of the skin.
Black carbon dots, redness and swelling will be present on the skin for immediately following treatment and will take 3-7 days to fall off. Some patient prefer to take leave from work during this time.
The area must be kept dry at all times until all the carbon dots have fallen off.
The treated area will have a special post care cream and skin coloured camouflage cream after the procedure. You will be given both these creams to reapply as necessary until all carbon dots have fallen off.
Your normal skincare and foundation may be resumed when all dots have fallen off.
The treated skin will retract and tighten giving an instant tightening effect with improving results in continued tightening and collagen stimulation over a 12 week period.
Usually 1 treatment is required, however, for more severe cases a second treatment may be desirable.
Results can last up to 4 years depending on the patients age, skin quality and lifestyle factors.
Mild darkening of pigment where the carbon dots may occur in some patients which can be treated with an appropriate depigmenting cream. Even without intervention this darkened pigment generally resolves over time.
The eye area is a very sensitive area so a numbing cream is applied to the area prior to treatment. If discomfort is still experienced then injections of local anaesthetic are used to numb the area completely.
Matrix PDO threads are an increasingly popular treatment option for under eye skin rejuvenation. They were originally developed in Korea around 9 years ago, but have only been available in Australia more recently.
Matrix PDO threads procedures are fairly straight forward with minimal associated downtime making it a popular treatment option for those seeking an alternative option to a traditional surgical blepharoplasty, which are costly and invasive.
$350 for under eye treatment
PDO (Polydioxanone) threads consist of an absorbable polymer suture like material which is both flexible and durable making it an ideal material for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation, tightening and lifting. PDO thread material has been used in surgery for many years.
Mono threads- smooth threads the thickness of fine hair inserted via a fine needle that mainly tighten the skin and provide a small amount of lift and are an ideal option for under eye skin rejuvenation.
Mono threads: Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for 20 mins to decrease treatment discomfort. The area is then cleanse with surgical grade skin disinfectant. Multiple fine needles containing fine threads similar to a hair shaft are inserted into the skin. The fine needles are then removed leaving the fine thread underneath the skin.
PDO Mono thread treatment takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Numbing cream is applied to the under eye area prior to the treatment to minimise discomfort. The needles used to insert the threads are very fine and discomfort is minimal.
Mono Threads: Initially you might observe a correction in the treated area, however, this is due to swelling and will subside. The mono threads stimulate an increase in collagen production which takes approximately 12 weeks to occur.
