Sagging eyelids are a common problem as we get older. The loss of collagen, elastin and natural skin hydration leads to loosening of the skin. It can be particularly visible around the upper and lower eyelids, because the skin is very thin and delicate. Some people also have naturally hooded or heavy lids which are often inherited. Sagging of the upper or lower lids can give the appearance of fatigue and also affect the ability to wear makeup such as eyeshadow, eyeliner or foundation.
Until recently, the only method of treating a sagging eyelid was to surgically cut away the loose skin. However, the advent of plasma-technology has enabled medical professionals to non-surgically tighten and remove excess skin of the upper and lower eyelids.
The Dr Tatiana Clinic was one of the first clinics in the UK to introduce plasma-technology in the treatment of upper and lower eyelids. We use the PLEXR plasma-pen to vaporise areas of skin, removing unwanted skin whilst also stimulating the production of new collagen, elastin and hydrators to tighten the skin.
