Treatments for the hooded eye are quite possibly the most wildly popular of all Plamere Plasma Arc Treatments. It is important to ensure you select the appropriate clients for this procedure. This procedure produces amazing results for moderately lax skin in the area above the eye. It will not be as effective on thicker more youthful skin. It is very important to give the skin above the clients eye an thorough assessment for laxity prior to treatment to set the proper expectations for this procedure with your client.
To assess or laxity:
1. Pinch lightly the area of lax skin between the tips of your finger. If you can pull the skin away with ease and it feel rather flat between your fingers this is ideal.
2. Look at the lash line closely to see if the lashes are still visible or if they are covered by skin. In clients who have sagging hooded eyes past their lashes it is wise to advise they will need additional treatments for optimal results.
3. Look at the inside and outside corners of the clients eye for the appearance of draping skin. Thin, draping skin will respond well to Plamere Plasma treatment.
