How to Fix Droopy Eyelids Without Surgery
Choosing a plasma eye lift can help you address issues with saggy top and bottom eyelids which occurs when the skin around the eyes gets lax with age without the risks involved with surgery. Plasma eye lifts are a powerful and effective alternative to surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid correction).
The treatment is preferred by many over more invasive surgical cosmetic procedures as plasma eye lifts mean reduced recovery time and none of the complications that can arise before and after surgery.
Non-surgical eye lifts remove the excess eyelid skin and wrinkles around the eyes while being entirely non-invasive. The system doesn’t spread heat to surrounding areas either, which makes it ideal for treating sensitive areas (such as eyelids) that are not really suitable for other devices.
How Does a Plasma Eye Lift Work?
The plasma eye lift works best to lift or smooth hooded, heavy or double eyelids, and also to reduce eye bags and crow’s feet wrinkles. It’s a permanent solution with minimal downtime or risk, and the treatment is much more selective than Radio Frequency or HIFU.
The entire treatment is an innovative development in cosmetic medicine and rejuvenating facial treatments as the process employs the fourth state of matter: Plasma.Plasma uses the ionisation of gases in the air forming an electrical arc.The other states of matter being solid, liquid and gas. The procedure is a relatively painless and fuss-free eye-lifting treatment.
During the session, our trained practitioners will apply a topical anaesthesia to the eye area. Next, the Plasma Applicator is applied to the places which are to be treated in a specific order and manner, effectively removing the excess skin. The Plasma Applicator will reshape the contour of the eye area and leave behind tiny micro scabs that drop off in a few days.
As the needle only has a 0.3 mm surface area, the procedure is exact and delicate. The needle never breaks the skin but emits a small electric arc that is ideal for treating the skin around the eye while minimising risk. The plasma arc stimulates instant contraction through the tip of the needle and tightens the skin in the process. You should see a difference very quickly, but the final results will take 2-4 weeks to emerge fully.
Advantages of Plasma Eye Lift vs. Surgical Blepharoplasty
- The treatment does not require an injectable anaesthetic. The procedure is performedwith topicalcream anaesthesia only.
- No cutting is necessary; a session only involves the plasma sublimation of the skin.
- No stitches are needed, so no risk of scarring.
- It is an incredibly low-risk procedure (there is NO risk of blindness as there is with surgical Blepharoplasty.)
- Minimal side effects and downtime is necessary.
- It’s a quick and easy procedure, CoLaz plasma eye lifts only take about 30 minutes.
- Through the plasma, collagen is stimulated to create stronger, less wrinkled skin.

Plasma Eye Lift Treatment, Aftercare, and Results
Plasma eye lifts are a very gentle procedure. The number of sessions necessary will depend on the required treatment area size and the client’s expected degree of correction. The plasma electrical arc will create a superficial burn dot on the skin. Repeated ‘dots’ are created using plasma around the eyes. The skin tissue instantly vaporises which leaves a ‘crusting’ on the area.
Once the micro scabs fall off naturally, much tighter and firmer skin is revealed, restoring the skin’s natural elasticity.
The session may be moderately uncomfortable and sensitive for some—especially as eyelid procedures are where the skin is at its thinnest. Our Plasma Applicator allows our technicians to work quickly and precisely which minimises as much potential discomfort for you as possible. However, this all depends on your own sensitivities and tolerance to pain to beginwith.
Don’t cover the area to be treated withany make-up, mascara, creamsor plasters and occlusive dressingsuntil the skin has fully healed.The only exception should be givento the specific aftercare products CoLaz recommends post-treatment.
After any kind of facial procedure, especially around the eyes, CoLaz recommends using a cooling gel eye masks to prevent inflammation by soothing and reducing any swelling. Once the micro scabs have healed, use factor 50 sunblock for up to 12 weeks and avoid sunbeds.

Cellulite Removal FAQ
Will I need to take time off work?
The post-treatment aftercare is minimal and requires no necessary downtime. Just take care with the micro scabs to moisturize them and avoid sunbeds, saunas, and heavy exercise while the area heals properly. Try to avoid exfoliating or scratching at the micro scabs. The ‘crusting’ of micro scabs can be covered with concealer too for work.
How long do sessions take?
The procedure will last around 30 minutes.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions you require will depend entirely upon your goals and desired results.
How safe is a plasma eye lift?
Very safe. Plasma eye lifts arenon-invasive, non-surgical, and come with none of the risks that surgical blepharoplasty does.
How much will a plasma eye lift cost?
We encourage clients to arrange a free consultation with us first to discuss what you hope to achieve with plasma eye lifts. It is advisable to visit us in person, so we can assess your requirements impartially and give you a better idea of cost.
Are there any side effects to plasma eye lifts?
There may be some mild swelling after your session for up to 1-5 days which is normal, but the inflammation is usually of a very minor nature and entirely to be expected. Post-treatment downtime and recovery from plasma eye lifts are frequently shown to be superior to work with other less suitable devices.
