Plasma skin tightening treatment can be used to remove excess skin and to reduce lines and wrinkles without surgery, bleeding and pronounced scarring. It can be used for the following:
• Non-surgical blepharoplasty
• Scarring including stretch marks, acne scars and post-surgical scars
• Lines and wrinkles around the mouth
• Facelift and neck lift
• Skin Tags
Plasma treatment causes instant alteration of the loose or damaged skin and there is no heat transferred to surrounding tissues to cause damage to normal skin. Plasma energy stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin.
The method uses plasma which is considered to be acceptable for most people and the result of tissue retraction and skin tightening makes the treatment one of the best options as non-surgical blepharoplasty.
Is plasma tightening treatment safe?
Plasma therapy offers an alternative to invasive surgical cosmetic procedures, avoids bleeding, reduces downtime and serious post operative complications. It is an innovative rejuvenation and skin tightening method which utilises the fourth state of matter - Plasma. The system is very precise and doesn't spread heat to surrounding areas, treating only the top layer of the skin means that it is perfect to operate on delicate areas such as eyelids.
Does it hurt?
Local anaesthetic cream will be applied for 40-50 minutes prior to the treatment to minimise any discomfort. The treatment may feel hot in places and there may be a tingling or burning sensation afterwards.
How does it work?
The Plasma method has many advantages over invasive traditional surgery, which makes it an increasingly popular treatment method. Plasma is a relatively new innovation in the aesthetic industry. The precise devise works by ionising the gas particles in the air between its tip and the skin, to form plasma. The solid substance is turned from a solid state straight into gas. The electrical arch is visible between the tip of the device and the skin. The top layer of the skin is destroyed instantly in a safe and efficient manner producing stable, long lasting results.
What can I expect following the treatment?
Following the treatment, tiny dark brown crusts will appear at the treatment site which may darken within a few hours. Mini dark brown spots appear where individual shots have been fired and an area has been ‘sprayed’ with plasma. Swelling is common and will last 2 -3 days. It will be significant if you are having top eyelids treated and often worse the following morning. You may experience a tingling/burning sensation for about 30 - 60 min. The area might be red and warm immediately after the procedure.
Skin will be tender and delicate for a few days and it is important to keep it clean and dry. It is important to allow any spots or scabs to fall off naturally otherwise scarring or infection may occur. Broad spectrum sunscreen is a must.
What result should I expect?
Final results depend on severity of skin laxity, size of lesion and general health conditions. Reduction in skin folds and creases appear immediately. The result is permanent but you need to remember that you body and the skin will continue to age naturally.
Is there any aftercare?
Immediately after treatment, there may be a burning sensation which may last for 30 - 60 min. Cooling will be applied to reduce it. If it is particularly uncomfortable or persists for a longer period, then an anti-inflammatory medication can be taken.
After treatment we strongly advise keeping the treated area clean, dry and protected. Make-up may be applied 24 hours after the treatment. Do not expose the treated area to extreme heat or cold until it has healed. If the swelling is more significant, an anti-inflammatory medication and/or anti-histamine may help reduce the swelling and you can book a lymphatic drainage procedure FREE of charge.
Crusting will usually flake off within 7-10 days revealing a new pink skin which will blend in naturally over next a few weeks. It is essential to not pick at this crusting as this may lead to infection or scarring. You can apply light eye cream from the 3rd day to speed up healing process.
There is no cutting of the skin, no stitches required, no bleeding, no anaesthetic injections meaning that most people can drive and return to work immediately following the treatment. We advise to have someone driving you home if you are having top eyelid treatment.
How many treatment will I need?
You will see some improvement after first procedure but at least 2 treatments will be required for optimum results. There should be at least six weeks between treatments.
