Plasma Ion Eye-lift Treatment
The latest eyelid lift treatment WITHOUT surgery.
Dr Serene's Two Day Blog - After Self-Treatment
The new Plasma Ion Eye-lift works well, not only for droopy eyelids but it contracts eye bags ( usually difficult to treat) and deep wrinkles (crows feet/ frown lines/scar tissue). This is a nonsurgical treatment - no cutting, no anaesthetics, no theatre fees. Officially, downtime is about four days. As you know, I always trial every product and procedure that I do so I have firsthand experience. So here's my first two day blog on this treatment.
How does one minimise downtime? As the procedure causes brown crusts to form, I decided to be creative and make it look like brown eye-shadow. Went out to dinner half an hour after the procedure and no one blinked. The next day is usually the worst - when there's a bit of swelling and the brown marks looked a bit weird. So I used some make-up. Went grocery shopping and by noon, looked quite normal. For me, down-time was minimal and it didn't restrict my activities. I used a few techniques to reduce the swelling.
After my last patient on Friday afternoon, I injected some local anaesthetic (with a cannula - blunt needle) and used the Plasma Ion Eye-lift machine on my upper eye lids. My receptionist Holly (medical student) watched in horror. No pain at all.
When I woke up on Saturday, there was no bruising but swelling was obvious, which made the brown markings look weird, so I covered it with some make-up. Went out for coffee.
By noon, swelling had gone down and the eyes looked reasonable. Went grocery shopping.
lNo make-up. After a swim, some of the scabs fell off and it started to sting. Should have kept it dry. Never pick the scabs off for a better result. Swelling has reduced more. My eyelids should continue to lift and look best at the 2-3 month mark.
How does it work?
When surgical blepharoplasties are done, loose skin is removed. It's also important to improve this fragile sensitive skin area around the eyes or droopy eyelids will recur. Jettplus does both. There is an electrical potential difference between the internal and external part of our cell membrane that diminishes as we age. Consequently cell function also deteriorates.
This is restored when the cell membranes receive an electrical DC discharge from Jettplus. This one way current is very precise and doesn't affect the surrounding tissue. The tissue then contracts and lifts over 2-6 weeks. The cells are rejuvenated with a greater potential difference in the cell membrane and they get hydrated.
Results are seen immediately. There is downtime for 4-5 days but make-up can be used to camouflage the crusting that will occur.
Treatment is $1950 for both upper eyelids. This includes Ultraformer eye treatment ( RRP $950 - lifting the brow, upper eye lid and crows feet) as results are better with both modalities. A second treatment may be necessary and that is included in the price. If your eyelids are extremely droopy or very asymmetrical, there is also a medicare rebate.
PRICE: Jettplus lift to upper or lower eye lids $995 ( 1 treatment only)
Jettplus package $1950 which includes initial treatment to either the upper or lower eyelids, Ultraformer treatment and a second Jettplus lift at 3 months, if necessary.
Day 7. Some crusting still but most have dropped off.
Note her crow's feet have improved.
Concentrated Growth Factors Treatment
1. Barrie Turnbull
Barrie Turnbull, practice manager, has deep hollows under his eyes. "People always say I look tired when I feel energetic," said Barrie. Dr Serene showed on Today Tonight how to refresh his face. Barrie's major concern was to keep looking natural. "Hollows under the eyes are tricky to treat. Too much and you get puffy eyes. The treatment has to be deep or skin discoloration can occur," says Dr Serene. It's now 18 months since the treatment and Barrie has not had any "You're looking tired" comments. He's really pleased.
2. Lois Christensen
Lois Christensen runs a busy lunch bar and was most concerned about the lines above her upper lips and wanted to look more refreshed. Dr Serene refined her face, slimmed down her jawline, and removed the wrinkles around her mouth. Lois said, "I'm so pleased with Dr Serene's treatment - I look natural and much fresher."
3. Dr Serene's Patient
This gentleman had deep lines from his nose to mouth (nasolabial lines). Dr Serene lifted his cheeks instead of filling in just the lines. As we age, the connective tissue becomes less elastic and the cheeks 'fall', causing nasolabial folds. This also flattens the face. Most young people have higher and rounder cheeks with greater 3D definition. If the nasolabial folds are only filled, the face will still have a flat contour and will look unnatural. This man's facial shape is now symmetrical and filled around the cheeks.
"By lifting the cheeks, restoring 3D contour, the nasolabial folds will improve without any filling needed," said Dr Serene.
before & after: SQOOM
1. Dr Orna Gabbay
Perth Cosmetic GP has never received compliments about her face. 5 days after SQOOMing, the compliments started coming: "Your face is glowing! You look so much younger, what's your secret?" She found the wrinkles above her lips (which are usually hard to treat) disappeared, her face lifted, her eye lids became less droopy and her skin texture became smooth, elastic, and youthful.
"I now recommend SQOOM to all my cosmetic clients and I don't use botox or fillers on myself anymore."
2. Name Withheld
A large number of people over 50's have reddened, blotchy skin. Sun damage/heat and cold environmental changes/wind and stress thins the skin and the inflamed veins beneath the skin become more obvious. It's very hard to treat with creams and antibiotics. Reverse the cause by nurturing the skin and the redness goes. SQOOM rehydrates and soothes the skin, restoring skin volume so the veins become invisible again. This girl's red cheeks continue to improve with SQOOM.
See how effective SQOOM is for treating acne and improving skin texture. Many SQOOM users have replaced their regular microdermabrasions, facials, and skin care treatments with weekly SQOOM home treatments.
