Plasma Skin Tightening
Plasma Fibroblasting is an incredibly effective treatment for rejuvenating problem areas like the eyes, a procedure known as non-surgical eye-lift or Blepharoplasty. It can treat many other areas including the decolletage, neck and tummy. A single session will instantly tighten sagging/ loose skin, tighten eyelids and reduce the appearance of crow’s-feet. We have had some tremendous results on mum tums also.
What is a Plasma skin tightening treatment?
A new treatment specifically designed to dramatically enhance looks without cutting, burning
or removing excess skin or fat, plasma fibroblasting is a great substitute for traditional surgical and injectable treatments. It is classed as a soft surgery and the results will last up to 3 years.
What are Fibroblasts?
Dermal fibroblasts are cells within the dermis layer of skin which are responsible for generating connective tissue and allowing the skin to recover from injury. They are the building blocks for collagen production and support the skin like scaffolding.
The controlled micro trauma caused by plasma stimulates Fibroblasts, then the existing collagen and elastin in the skin promotes the production of new skin cells which will help to strengthen, plump and tighten the skin.
New cell production continues for up to 12 weeks after a session. In this time new collagen is produced and skin will be stronger, more supple, tighened, rejuvenated and and refined. This helps to lift and refine fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall complexion of the skin.
Fibroblasts are critical in supporting healing functions of the skin, and involved in key processes such as creating new extra cellular matrix (ECM) and collagen.
How does Plasma skin tightening work?
Plasma Fibroblasting treatments work on the principle of ionized gas in the air. At the right distance from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed, and the electrostatic energy produces the plasmatic effusion or arc, which discharges onto the skin.
Without actually touching the skin, this plasma arc vaporises the skin forcing it to contract and stimulates fibroblasts – the cells responsible for the production of collagen.
Small carbon crusts form on the skin, resembling dots, which naturally shed over the coming days to reveal regenerated skin.
This micro-trauma and stimulation is the key to the treatments results.
What to Expect from Plasma Treatment?
To ensure client comfort a local anaesthetic cream will be applied before commencing the procedure. Your can expect a small degree of swelling when treating the eye area, which usually resolves quickly within 3 or 4 days.
Small circular carbon crusts form at each treatment point, which slough away after a few days but may take up to a week to completely clear. Correct after care will expedite healing, and minimise infection risk. Once the skin has healed your client will be left with more youthful, radiant skin.
The results from this treatment are dramatic and long lasting, so usually a single treatment is enough to achieve the results you will want.
However, if you want a stronger result then the procedure can be repeated after 3 months. Because of its permanency repeat treatments are only required further as you genetically age.
How long does Plasma Skin tightening last?
The effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. The results can last you years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen after 4 weeks and continue to lift and rejuvenate for a full 12 weeks and ongoing.
Like any surgical procedure the effects aren’t entirely permanent and won’t stop the ageing process. However, the results you get should last you for many years. The positive effect of the Plasma Fibroblast treatment will be noticeable almost immediately after the first treatment and continuing over 4 weeks.
Is Plasma Skin Tightening painful?
Plasma is mildly uncomfortable. Everyone’s pain level is different and some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. Numbing cream is helpful in reducing the discomfort during treatment.
What is the aftercare advice for Plasma skin tightening and what to expect immediately after ?
Aftercare is essential to this treatment and must be taken very seriously, a full and thorough consultation will be given where we will go through your personal aftercare journey.
A sensation like sunburn is often observed, and some localised swelling.
Do not pick, peel or pull at carbon crust – wait for them to slough away naturally. This period of visually not looking 100% is worth the wait!
The area treated must be kept free of all make up, mascaras, creams and lotions other than recommended aftercare products.
Expect some swelling for one to five days after treatment – recovery times are generally shorter than this. This is a normal reaction, and part of the initial stages of the skin healing & rebuilding. Typically swelling is at its worst on day 3 and will have subsided by day 5.
To prevent scabbing, clients should keep the area hydrated using the aftercare recommended.
As the area heals and dries, a light crust can form on the skin. Do not pick, and keep clean and dry.
Clients must revisit for a review at 6 weeks post session.
Clients must wear a maximum SPF daily around the clock to prtect from environmental factors, such as screens, TV's lights and obviously the sun (even indoors and when its cloudy) ideally 90/100 and stay out of the sun 12 weeks to avoid hyperpigmentation.
