Before and After Treatment
Plasma skin tightening is a brow lift and non-surgical eye lift blepharoplasty revolutionary treatment that has been pioneered by MINTS MedSpa in Chicago. The Chicago Medical Spa is proud to be one of the few medical spas to offer this new exciting and results-oriented treatment.
This unique and innovative technology utilizes plasma, which is formed through the ionization process of atmospheric gases. This stimulates instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibers around the eyes. The plasma blast treatment is administered via tiny spots using a Plexr device at certain distances at specific intervals. Each one of these spots sublimates the superficial coenocytes. The best thing is that it leaves your basal laminas undeterred hence preventing any bleeding or damage to the tissues surrounding the treatment area.
Plasma Blast Can Restore a Youthful Appearance to your eyelids
The innovative blepharoplasty treatment takes less than half an hour. However, at MINTS Chicago Medical Spa, we always encourage our patients to turn up for an appointment at least one hour prior to the treatment. This will facilitate the application of a numbing cream to the area where the plasma blast treatment is to be administered.
The treatment will produce mild crustations which may last for 3-5 days. Noticeable results can be experienced after undergoing the first treatment. However, for some individuals whose condition is more severe, you might need to follow it up with subsequent treatment to have any noticeable positive results.
