What is NeoGen Plasma, and how can it help me overcome wrinkles and lines under my eyes?

NeoGen Plasma [1] is an innovative cosmetic procedure specifically designed to address issues like wrinkles and lines under the eyes. This advanced treatment utilises controlled heat from plasma energy to stimulate collagen production, which promotes skin tightening and rejuvenation. 

By targeting specific areas with fine lines and wrinkles, NeoGen Plasma helps improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of ageing. If you're seeking a non-surgical solution for a smoother and more youthful under-eye area, NeoGen Plasma may be a promising option.

Are there any side effects of NeoGen plasma?

NeoGen Plasma is generally considered a safe procedure, but like any cosmetic treatment, it may have minor side effects. Common side effects include redness, swelling, and minor discomfort in the treated area. These effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days.

Patients may sometimes experience mild crusting or scabbing, a natural part of the healing process. To minimise the chances of side effects, you must follow post-treatment care instructions provided by your aesthetician. 

If you have any concerns about side effects or the appropriateness of NeoGen Plasma, consult with an aesthetician who can provide personalised guidance based on your circumstances.

Is NeoGen plasma a painful rejuvenation procedure? 

NeoGen Plasma is generally not considered a painful rejuvenation procedure. While most individuals report feeling only mild discomfort or a sensation of heat during the treatment, pain tolerance varies. 

Some people may find the procedure more uncomfortable than others. If you are concerned about pain, please communicate openly with your aesthetician. Discuss pain management options, such as adjusting the level of anaesthesia or using additional measures to enhance your comfort during the procedure.

How many NeoGen Plasma treatments do I need?

The number of NeoGen Plasma treatments required varies depending on factors like the treatment area, the condition of your skin, and your desired outcome. Generally, NeoGen skin regeneration can address the entire face in approximately 45-60 minutes or a smaller selected region in just 5-10 minutes. 

We usually recommend one to six sessions based on individual needs and goals. During a consultation, our aesthetician can assess your eye condition and provide a bespoke treatment plan to ensure the best results.

How long does NeoGen Plasma last?

The effects of NeoGen Plasma are known for their longevity, with continued tissue regeneration occurring for up to two years post-treatment. This extended duration ensures sustained improvements in the skin, particularly addressing concerns under the eyes, such as dark circles and eye bags. 

The lasting impact of NeoGen Plasma makes it a favourable choice for individuals seeking immediate benefits and a prolonged and effective solution to enhance the overall appearance of the treated area.

What is Fotona SmoothEye, and does it work?

Fotona SmoothEye is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to target and improve the delicate skin around the eyes, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and overall skin laxity. This innovative procedure utilises controlled laser technology to stimulate collagen [2] production, which helps with skin tightening and rejuvenation.

As for its effectiveness, many individuals who have undergone this treatment report improvements in the texture and firmness of the skin around their eyes, including the eyebrows. The laser energy employed in Fotona SmoothEye helps stimulate collagen remodelling, which leads to a smoother and more youthful appearance.

To determine if Fotona SmoothEye suits your needs, please consult an experienced aesthetician who can assess your concerns and provide personalised insights based on your skin type and overall goals.

How many sessions of Fotona SmoothEye are typically recommended for optimal results?

The number of Fotona SmoothEye sessions needed for optimal results varies based on individual factors such as skin condition and individual response to treatment. Most patients benefit from three sessions spaced approximately four weeks apart. However, the specific recommendation may be tailored to your needs and can be discussed during a consultation with your trusted aesthetician.

Are there any side effects associated with Fotona SmoothEye, and how common are they?

The side effects of Fotona SmoothEye are usually mild and temporary. Following the treatment, most individuals may notice redness in the treatment area for 2-3 days – resembling a mild sunburn. Some patients experience mild swelling and dryness in the treatment area. However, these side effects are generally short-lived and are part of the normal healing process.

How long does Fotona SmoothEye last?

The results of Fotona SmoothEye are known for their longevity, with ongoing improvements continuing for up to 9-10 months after completing the treatment series. This extended duration is attributed to the regeneration of collagen and elastin, which provides sustained enhancements in skin texture and firmness. While individual experiences may vary, many appreciate the long-lasting benefits of Fotona SmoothEye. 

What is Thermage Eye treatment, and how does it work? 

Thermage Eye treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps address sagging skin and wrinkles around the eyes, including the eyelids. It utilises radio frequency (RF) technology to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The focused RF energy penetrates the deep layers of the skin, which promotes natural collagen production and tightens loose or sagging tissues.

During the Thermage Eye procedure, a specially designed tip, which delivers controlled and precise thermal energy, is applied to the targeted areas. This energy heats the collagen fibres in the skin and causes them to contract, triggering new collagen production over time. As a result, individuals experience a firming and lifting effect, reduced wrinkles, and improved overall texture of the skin around the eyes.

Thermage Eye is known for its non-invasive nature, which makes it an appealing option for those looking to enhance the appearance of their eyes without surgery. The treatment is usually well-tolerated, and most individuals experience gradual and natural-looking results over the following months.

How long does Thermage last?

Thermage treatment [3] on eyelids is known for its lasting effects, and its results can last for years with annual maintenance sessions. While individual experiences may vary, the initial effects of a Thermage session typically last about 6 to 9 months. 

We usually recommend that our patients undergo one to two treatment sessions annually to sustain the desired results. This helps maintain the firmness and tightness achieved with Thermage and provides a long-term solution for addressing sagging skin on the eyelids.

Is Thermage safe? 

Common side effects of Thermage may include swelling and redness in the treated area. While these effects are generally mild and temporary, there is a potential risk of burn associated with the procedure. 

It's important to note that severe complications such as scarring are rare but possible. Some individuals may experience soreness and discomfort following the treatment, but these symptoms typically subside quickly.

To minimise the risk of adverse effects and ensure a safe and effective treatment, it is crucial to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner who has years of experience in delivering eye rejuvenation treatments and can provide pre-treatment guidance, explain the side effects, and offer post-treatment care instructions to promote a smooth recovery process. 

What is AGNES Revo eyebag removal, and does it work for eye bags?

Agnes Revo eyebag removal, or EYE REVO, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses a patented micro-needle. These micro-needles, as fine as a 'mosquito sting,' emit radio-frequency energy to selectively target subcutaneous fat [4] between the skin and the orbital septum. This targeted eye rejuvenation procedure helps tighten and firm the skin around the eye region by stimulating new collagen formation.

What sets EYE REVO apart is its ability to address under-eye bags without the need for surgical treatments or leaving visible scars. The procedure requires only topical anaesthesia, which makes it minimally invasive.

What are the side effects of AGNES Revo eye bag removal?

For more intensive AGNES Revo eye bag removal treatments, which address deep lines and severe eye bags, there is a downtime of approximately 7 to 10 days. During this period, patients may experience some swelling, redness, and bruising, which will subside over time. 

In most cases, patients overcome the residual redness and swelling around 4 to 5 days after the treatment. While these side effects are temporary, it's recommended that you follow post-treatment care instructions provided by your medical provider for a smooth recovery process and minimal discomfort.

How long does it take to see results from AGNES Revo eyebag removal?

Individuals usually notice visible results from AGNES Revo eyebag removal about one month after the treatment. However, the full extent of the improvements continues to develop over time, with optimal results becoming apparent up to six months after each treatment session. 

The process involves the gradual revitalisation of under-eye bags and improvement in wrinkles, as newly generated collagen contributes to skin tightening. Moreover, during this timeframe, the body absorbs disrupted fat cells, contributing to the overall enhancement of the treated area. Patience is key, as the effects of AGNES Revo become more prominent over the course of several months.
