The Plasma Skin Tightening boasts being one of the only cosmetic procedures in the industry that uses plasma to instantly shrink, tighten and eliminate loose and excess skin. Plasma Skin Tightening is renowned for its remarkable Non-Surgical, NonInvasive treatments such as, but are not limited to, Tummy Tightening, Eye lifts, Pigmentation Removal, Full Face and Neck Lifts, Stretch Mark and Acne Reduction. These treatments are low risk and hold a minimal recovery time of 7 days allowing the client to return to usual activities in no time. The best part is, treatments can be performed in as little as 30 minutes and are drastically cheaper than any surgical procedure with similar result.
Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening is a non-surgical treatment that uses a device to deliver the energy in the form of plasma to rejuvenate skin by improving facial lines and wrinkles, skin pigmentation associated with photo-ageing and other skin irregularities. It is based on the creation of a series of tiny dots running alongside the tension lines on the skin. The principle involves the ionization of gases from the atmospheric air to create micro electrical discharge causing sublimation (turning solids into gas) of the excessive/sagging superficial skin layer. This process triggers an instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibers to create a lifting, remodeling and rejuvenating effect. Most areas of the face and body can be treated. The procedure normally takes 30 min to 3 hours to perform, depending on the size of the area being treated. Results are seen instantly although the best appearance is seen after 3 - 6 weeks. Although most clients only require one treatment, 1- 3 treatments at 8 weekly intervals are recommended to give the results similar to a surgical procedure.
Local anesthetic cream is applied for 30 minutes prior to treatment to minimise any discomfort and the procedure is then virtually painless. The treatment may feel hot in places and there may be a tingling or burning sensation afterwards. Plasma technology has been used worldwide for several years. There have been occasional reports of post-treatment hyper or hypo pigmentation (darkening or lightening of skin) but no other permanent adverse events have been reported. However, with any procedure involving trauma to the skin there is always the possibility of scars.
The skin will have multiple millimeter trauma marks to the skin’s surface, and as healing occurs the skin will appear dry and flaky. In the first few days, skin feels tender and redness and swelling will be present. Every individual will vary, some may have very little swelling that subsided in 1-2 days, whereas some may swell for a week. Pigmentation and redness from the small marks can be present for longer if the scabs come away earlier than expected, for example when lying on one side of the face whilst sleeping.
Final results depend on severity of skin laxity or size of lesion, the desired result, the general condition of the skin and any pre-existing skin or medical problems. Reduction in skin folds and creases appear immediately. The tiny dark brown spots flake off over the following one to three weeks and the skin will heal within a similar period. Swelling is common and can be quite pronounced around the eyes, often worse the following morning and lasting for several days. The area may be tender as it is healing and may scab. It is important to allow any spots or scabs to fall off naturally otherwise scarring or infection may occur. As the treated skin is sublimated, the results often last years or permanently.
The treatment is very safe, as it is a non-surgical procedure. It has a negligible amount of possible side effects and serious complications alike. The procedure is based on the natural stimulation of skin regeneration, so the excesses which may be seen in the world of traditional surgery are not possible. The Fibroblast treatment takes a very short time, with stress on the aftercare, as, in case the client neglects the instructions for aftercare. Potential side effects are :pain,redness and swelling, itching, acne or millia formation, pigment changes (post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation or hypo-pigmentation), persistent redness, bleeding, oozing, crusting,blisters,burns, scabbing, scarring, melasma.
Immediately after treatment, there may be a burning sensation. This will usually resolve during the remainder of the day although if it is particularly uncomfortable or persists for a longer period, then an anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen can be taken. Swelling is common. This can be significant around the eyes and can last for several days and may lead to interference with vision in the initial period. Anti-inflammatory medication and/or anti-histamine may help alleviate the swelling. Crusting will usually develop over the treated area, this will often initially be brown or black on the surface of the skin and flake off over the following days. It may take over 2 weeks to completely disappear. To maximise the effects of your Plasma Fibroblast treatment we advise to keep the crustations/discoloration intact for 5-7 days and not rub them off immediately. Keep the treated area clean, away from excessive moisture and protected using a broad spectrum sunscreen. Mineral make-up may be applied from the third day of the treatment onwards. Avoid exposing the area to extremes of heat or cold until it has healed. A printed aftercare sheet together with an aftercare gel will be provided to you after your treatment.
