Plasma Skin Tightening
How does it work?
Plasma is a relatively new innovation in the aesthetic industry. The device works by ionising the gas particles in the air between it’s tip and into the skin to form plasma. The electrical arch is visible between the top of the device and the skin. The top layer of the skin is destroyed in a safe and efficient way. The result of using plasma is that it is acceptable for most people and tightens the skin. This method can be used to treat specific areas of concern without damaging the surrounding tissue or applying unwanted heat energy to them.
Is it safe?
Plasma technology allows for less downtime, less invasive procedures, and avoids complications that come with more invasive surgery. The system is safe and delivers precise results that can treat delicate areas such as the eyelids.
Does it hurt?
We numb the area with a topical anaesthetic cream for 15 minutes before the procedure, therefore discomfort should be very minimal. The treatment may feel hot and you may experience a burning or tingling sensation afterwards.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Following the treatment you will find you will have small, red or brown dots that appear on your skin where the shots have been fired. You may experience swelling in the first 2-3 days after the procedure. The area may feel hot and you may experience a burning sensation straight after the procedure. Your skin will be tender for a few days, so you will need to be delicate and keep the area clean and dry. Do not pick or pull at any scabs, as you risk scarring the area – you must leave the scabs to fall off naturally. You must wear a high protection sunscreen whilst the area is healing.
What results can I expect?
Results differ on each client, depending on skin elasticity, the size of the treated area and general health. The skin should be tighter and you will see a reduction in skin folds and lines. The result is permanent, but clients skin will continue to naturally age.
Is there any aftercare?
You may experience a burning/hot sensation after the treatment, so you may need to apply a cooling pack to help the discomfort. If it is particularly painful or persists for a while, you can take anti-inflammatory medication to help. Clients need to keep the area clean and dry, and you can apply make up 24 hours after the treatment. Do not expose your skin to particularly hot or cold temperatures, and you will need to protect the treated area with sunscreen until it is healed. The scabs will usually fall off within 7-10 days, and new fresh pink skin will be visible. You must not pick at the scabs or you may risk scarring or infection. There is very minimal downtime and clients can go about their daily activities as normal. You may wish for someone to drive for you on the day if you have had an upper eyelid procedure.
How many treatments are required?
You will see improvement in your skin after 1 treatment, but usually best results are from at least 2 treatments. We recommend at least 6 weeks between each treatment.
