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.

Plasma Skin Tightening treatment is not suitable for everyone. There are risks associated with the treatment and it’s of the utmost importance to know if you are suitable for the procedure. If you are considering The Plasma Skin Lift, you should be in good health at the time of the appointment, with no pre-existing health condition.

CONTRAINDICTIONS: Fibroblast Plasma Skin Lift is inadvisable for the following:

  • If you are prone to keloid scaring.
  • If you have diabetes, healing disorders or lymphatic drainage issues.
  • If you have a history of hyperpigmentation.
  • If you have a pacemaker.
  • If you are pregnant or breast feeding.
  • This treatment is only recommended for skin types fair/light to medium. Anyone with a darker complexion is at risk of hyperpigmentation.
  • You must not have cold sores, you must reschedule your appointment if you experiencing any symptoms.
  • If you have any signs of a cold or flu.
  • Contact lenses must be taken out if having an eye treatment.
  • Skin should not be inflamed in the area we are treating prior to procedure.
  • If you have sunburn /suntan treatment should be postponed for up to 8 weeks or until tan/burn signs disappear.
  • Discontinue use of any AHA or Retinol skincare products for 4 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Eyelash extension receiving upper or lower eyelid treatment MUST have eyelashes removed prior to treatment and reapplied after 8 weeks.
  • Discontinue use of any cleaners, creams and serums containing acid such as salicylic, glycolic and lactic 4 weeks prior to having facial Plasma Skin Lift procedures performed.

PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING POST-CARE

  • Keep the area clean to avoid infections until the scabs have formed and exfoliated on their own. Following the aftercare instruction exactly as written to ensure the best possible healed outcome.

 

AFTERCARE DO’S

  • Ice the treated area (use a clean cloth     to cover the icepack) alternating 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off, for up to one hour for the first 2 days.
  • Keep the treated area dry, if the area gets wet just gently dab dry.
  • Gently apply your aftercare product (using only clean hands) to the treated area as needed to relieve pain/itching each day until your scabs fall off on their own.
  • IMPORTANT!!! Allow the scabs to fall off on their own. This will ensure the possible healed result and avoid scarring and infection.
  • Be patient with the process and allow yourself time to rest and heal.
  • Avoid sun exposure– once the scabbing and peeling process is complete, always apply a broad spectrum sunblock to the treated area for a minimum of 3 months after your last treatment. The skin is still healing and can easily become damaged by the UV rays causing hyperpigmentation.

 

AFTERCARE DONTS:

  • Do not pick the scabs. Let them fall off by themselves or you risk scarring.
  • Do not apply any makeup (even mineral) for the first 4 days or until the scabbing or peeling is complete (about 7-10 days.)
  • Do not apply any plasters (liquid band aid) on the treated areas as doing so can delay the natural healing process.
  • Do not work out, swim, or get in a hot tub or steam bath (avoid sweating and soaking scabs).

 

SWELLING

Swelling is to be expected after this type of treatment. This is due to the fact that the area will be recovering from a deliberate controlled wound, therefore the natural side effect is swellings. There are steps you can take to minimize the swelling but it cannot be avoided. You can’t avoid or cure the swelling – it is a response to trauma. The swelling will subside in around 3 days.             

 

STAGES OF HEALING

Day 1: Try to lay propped up with pillows. Do not lay completely horizontal. Weeping from the treated area is normal as well as some pain and discomfort. The swelling will likely be worse in the mornings and lessen towards the evening. You may find it difficult to open your eyes in the morning following the treatment, however, it will subside throughout the day. It will feel like a bad sunburn.

Day 2: The swelling typically peaks by day 2. Do not be surprised if the swelling is worse on the second day. Remember: swelling is worse in the morning and lessen throughout the day. Swelling can also spread to the under eye area, but DON’T PANIC. This is perfectly normal. The upper and lower eye are all connected therefore the fluids from the upper eye will drain to the lower eye area. This too shall pass. Discomfort and pain are still present and to be expected on the second day. (each person is different and may not feel pain).

Day 3. You will notice an improvement in the swelling and the dots will start to crust/scab over. The scabs must not be picked allow them to fall off on their own. Your level of discomfort will have subsided dramatically. Minimal pain expected for the third day. For those who experienced the under eye swelling this will still be present. ( again each person is different).

Day 4. Some mild residual swelling may still be present on the upper eyelid no more pain or discomfort should be felt.

Day 5. Swelling should be complete and scabs may still be present. The under eye swelling should be almost completely gone.
