Mr Alwitry offers the following options for eyelids:

1. Surgical - Blepharoplasty

Droopy eyelids are a major reason why some people consider eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin for a more alert, youthful appearance.

Sometimes blepharoplasty also can improve your vision by providing a less obstructed field of view, once droopy eyelids are improved.

Blepharoplasty can remove excess skin, muscle and sometimes fat from the upper or lower eyelids. In some cases, you might need only skin removed but not muscle — or you might need the procedure done on both upper and lower eyelids.

2. Non-surgical - Plasmage®

Plasmage® is a new and exciting machine which uses plasma energy technology which enables results with little downtime and no surgery.

Plasmage® is the only plasma machine on the market to use fractional plasma, meaning that the device will not go above the preset temperatures during treatment.

How does Plasmage® work?

The device creates a series of small dots on the skin which lifts, tightens and contours the skin. Plasmage® ionises gas from the air creating a small electric arc which delivers  the treatment to a very small area without affecting the surrounding skin.

What can Plasmage® be used to treat?

Plasmage® is safe for all skin types and can be used for rejuvenation of skin.

It is especially good for scarring, fine perioral lines and excess skin. Plasmage® can be used to remove skin tags, warts and verrucas and reduce stretch marks.

By far the most exciting use for Plasmage® is excess upper and lower eyelid skin. Prior to plasma therapy the only option for hooded eyelids was surgery better known as blepharoplasty. The effects seen with Plasmage® are comparable to surgery but can be done in 30 minutes without the need for hospital visits and scarring.
