About this treatment
A small electrical arc is projected from the tip of the pen to the skin’s surface. The arc generates heat which causes a tightening of the surrounding skin. This tightening will continue for a few weeks following treatment as new collagen fibres develop.
Non-surgical blepharoplasty usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on your skin’s condition, and a topical cream will be put onto the skin prior to treatment commencing. Injections are needed and the treatment process is extremely safe, delivering excellent results that are visible immediately and will improve further over the next 2-3 weeks.
Non-surgical blepharoplasty can also be used to treat the area underneath the eyes and to treat scarring, pigmentation and skin tags.
