What is Plasmedics?

Plasmedic plasma pen fibroblast is a technique that offers fantastic skin tightening results. Plasma is an electrically charged gas that shocks the skin and causes it to contract, having an instant tightening effect. This is the closest treatment to a face lift without the surgery. Results speak for themselves. Lifts eyelids and restores youthful looks. Tightens skin, smooths out aging lines, wrinkle reduction, reduces pigmentation, fantastic for rejuvenating hooded eyelids offering age reversal in only one single session. The plasmedic pen is an incredibly effective treatment for rejuvenating the eyes, a procedure known as non-surgical eye-lift or blepharoplasty.

How Does Plasma Skin Regeneration Work?

Our specialised Plasmedic Pen is used to deliver an ionised gas (the plasma) which charges the air just above the skin. This process generates a tiny lightning bolt (called the ark) that damages existing cells and causes them to contract, and that’s when the magic happens- the skin’s natural healing progress goes into overdrive, encouraging fresh new cells to be produced. These include collagen and elastin, which help to maintain the skin’s elasticity and minimise the appearance of wrinkles. Depending on the intensity of the Plasma treatment, the treatment can be used to treat superficial issues such as hyperpigmentation and fine lines, as well as more extensive ones such as deep wrinkles and sagging skin.

What does Plasma Blast Involve?

Plasmedic fibroblast treatments can be performed in around 30-60 minutes depending on the treatment area. A local anaesthetic cream is applied to numb the area of the skin. The Plasmedic pen is then held over the skin to be treated. Your’re likely to feel some heat and possibly a tiny amount of discomfort, but not for long ( a typical eye-treatment lasts around 30-45 minutes, (for example). After the treatment your skin may feel a little sensitive like a mild sunburn and there will probably be swelling for the first 3 days. You’ll also develop small dry spots that will crust over and fall off within a week. These can be covered with make-up only when they fall off.

What Results Can I Expect?

Immediately after the treatment, your skin will appear tighter and smoother. This will continue to improve as the skin cells regenerate in the following weeks. Depending on your age and the area being treated, you’ll need between 1-3 sessions, performed around 6 to 8 weeks apart.

It is important to keep the tattoo out of direct sunlight and ensure 30 SPF (or higher) sunscreen is used for four weeks up until treatment. Sun effected skin can result in additional discomfort and slow the healing process. Most importantly avoid any direct sunlight for at least 48 hours prior.

We also recommend that if you smoke to limit or cease smoking for up to four weeks prior to treatment. Smoking causes decreased flow of oxygen and can delay the healing process.

Topical anaesthetic or numbing creams can be used prior to treatment however it is important to apply to the area a minimum of 1 hour before hand to allow for the effect to take place.

Depending on where the tattoo is you wish to get removed, ensure loose fitting clothing is worn to avoid any rubbing or irritation after treatment

We will apply an antibiotic cream to the area and the skin will be covered with a loose dressing. It is then up to you to manage the treated area and encourage the healing process through proper care.

The following steps should be carefully executed:

  • Apply an antiseptic/antibacterial ointment to the treatment area and continue to do so 3 times a day

  • Keep the area covered with a new clean dressing for at least 2 – 3 days after to avoid infection. After this time, remove the dressing and allow the area to ‘breathe’ and assist in healing and scabbing. This is a normal part of the body’s recovery process.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure during the entire healing process and ensure spf 50+ sun cream is applied and/or clothing is covering the area (this includes tanning beds). Continue using sunscreen up until your next treatment.

  • Showering is acceptable after 24 hours, however it is advised that you avoid prolonged exposure to water and avoid excessive heat in the skin for 48 – 72hours post treatment. This includes direct water pressure from a shower, exercise, swimming pools, using a bath etc. Excess moisture will hinder the wound/scab from healing.

  • Avoid injury to the area

  • Avoid scratching, picking or touching the direct or surrounding area. Pain of itching can be eased by applying a vitamin E cream

  • Cold packs or a cool cloth may be applied if further discomfort persists. Be careful not to ice the area for too long as this may cause an ‘ice burn’.

  • Ensure a minimum of 6 weeks before your next treatment
