Droopy upper eyelids

Type of treatment:

Plasma arc treatment

Droopy upper eyelids

This 51-yr old patient came to me, because she was bothered about her droopy eyelids. They'd become progressively worse over the last few years. She wanted to see if anything could be done to help her without going through surgery.

So, I used plasma arc skin tightening treatment to help her. The treatment involves numbing of the skin around the upper eyelids & forehead using anaesthetic cream. Controlled cauterising of the skin surface is then carried out.

The effect is based on physical skin tightening & collagen/elastin stimulation. The combination helps to lift & provide support to the treated skin. In this case, the skin of the eyelids gradually lifted over a few weeks & this progresses over a 3-month period.

The patient was very happy with the outcome & wished she'd undergone the treatment sooner.

Plasma arc: under eye skin tightening

I have been to Skinpharma Aesthetics on a number of occasions for various treatments. Viv is extremely informed practitioner and extremely professional. He offers excellent advice about the various treatments on offer to suit each individual needs as well as offering realistic expectations. He does not perform any treatment without taking a thorough medical history and his evaluation on the benefit of treatment is done on an individual basis with every client. Viv will not take your money for the sake of lining his pocket, if he feels treatment is of no benefit he will say. I feel totally safe have my treatments at skinpharma and cannot recommend Viv enough.

Plasma arc: upper eyelid skin tightening

I have had a couple of treatments with Viv now. On both occasions Viv has put me at ease; explained everything thoroughly via initial consultations and then again during treatments. The last treatment I had was back in August; I put my faith in Viv and had the Plasma Arc skin tightening on my upper eyelids. This was an area I was very conscious of but never really wanted surgery. Viv outlined how the treatment worked at initial consultation, which included a patch test. About two weeks after the patch test I had my treatment. It took around 2 hours. The area was numbed with cream. What amazed me (and I had done my research on this treatment) is Viv did not only concentrate on my eyelids but to the side and up on to my forehead. The procedure was not pain free, it is very stingy, especially around the sensitive parts of the eyelid; Viv explained what he was doing all the way through, at no point was it so painful that I couldn’t carry on. Full aftercare information was included with clear do’s and don’t... Recovery time was around 10 days. Day 1 and 2 after treatment the eye area was very red, swollen and sore. Swelling and soreness went by day 3/4. Spots stay for roughly the 10 days but did begin to fall away from around day 5 onwards. All of this had been explained to me by Viv so nothing was a shock or surprise. The results have surpassed my expectations. Can see and feel tightening of my eyelid, crows feet have gone from quite deep lines to faint crinkle ... I can pluck my eyebrows without having to stretch the skin to avoid nipping. I have defined eyelid again, with hooding very much reduced. Was it worthit? yes definitely and I’m so glad I put my faith and trust in Viv. When I have further treatment it will be with Viv...

Plasma arc: mole removal

Two weeks ago I had a mole removed on my face by Viv at Skinpharma in Yarm and OMG you have no idea how delighted I am with the result!
I was initially worried about it being painful as 20 years ago I had a mole removed on my forehead via my doctor. It was a painful procedure that left me with a lumpy scar. Luckily I didn’t go ahead on that day and get my chin mole removed!
My mother had a mole removed by Viv a month ago and I saw how amazing her’s looked and decided to be brave and finally get rid of my chin mole.
On the day I had the numbing cream on for about 35 minutes and laid back relaxing to some music. The actual procedure does smell a little but no pain or discomfort at all.
Afterwards I did have a blackish scab which I briefly covered with a plaster whilst doing the school run. I was careful to apply factor 50 and sunblock.
By day 4 it became a bit itchy and the scab started to come away and to say I was delighted would be an understatement. When the scab gradually came away, my skin underneath was slightly pink for a few more days.
I now have a smooth chin that looks like it’s always been that way. You can not tell I have had a mole removed at all. I wish I had this procedure done 20 years ago instead of always being conscious of my mole. I am now in the process of getting other moles checked by the dr to get the OK for Viv to remove them all.
I fully 100% recommend Viv- he’s such a lovely man with an amazing talent. You will not be disappointed.

Plasma arc: mole removal

100% recommend skinpharma I've had a mole on my face all of my life and recently had it removed by viv. I couldn't be happier ! The results are amazing and you would never be able to tell that there was ever anything there ! Wish I had it done much sooner. Viv made me feel so relaxed and comfortable.
I would never go anywhere else for any treatments.
