PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING
What is plasma skin tightening?
Plasma Skin Tightening aka Fibroblast is the ONLY cosmetic treatment to use PLASMA to ELIMINATE excess skin. Low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable then surgery. Plasma Pro Skin Tightening is known for it's success with Non Surgical Eye lift, Skin Tag Removal, Tummy Tightening, Stretch Marks and so much more.
The term “Soft Surgery” is used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery, with no scalpel, stitches or bandages and minimal downtime. A minimally invasive procedure with much lower risk and at a more affordable price than actual surgery.
How Does It Work?
The Plasma Skin Tightening method has many advantages over cosmetic surgery, which makes it an increasingly popular and demanded treatment. There is NO cutting of the skin, which means that there are no stitches required, and clients can return to work much sooner.
Plasma Skin Tightening is a relatively new procedure in the medical cosmetic industry in North America but has been used for a number of years in Europe. The extremely accurate device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the skin, to form a plasma charge. An electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissue retraction and tightening gives results that are comparable to invasive surgery.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Plasma Skin Tightening is able to treat a number of imperfections without any actual cutting of the skin. It can be used for:
- Eyelid Tightening, including lower eyelids and excess upper eyelid skin
- Skin imperfections, including skin tags and sunspots
- Improvement in the appearance of acne scars
- Diminishing Stretch marks
- Tightening loose stomach skin after pregnancy
- Lines and wrinkles around the mouth
- Plasma Facelift and Plasma Necklift
How long does it last? How many treatments are required?
As Plasma Skin Tightening is more than a simple tightening treatment, skin is actually removed, so the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of plasma treatment are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further ageing. But, the positive results should 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. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 6 weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure. Those planning on treatment should also be aware that their race and genetics can also have an effect of the length of beneficial effects.
The number of treatments required will vary according to the condition being treated, skin's laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 8 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results, although it is uncommon to require more than two treatments. Appointments must be spaced out by 8 weeks.
WHAT TO EXPECT-SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS
Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment.
There will be some tiny brown marks that have the appearance of minor scabbing, which are carbon crusts, but in 7-10 days these will flake away, revealing new pink skin beneath. Some swelling will be seen (especially in cases of eyelid treatment), but it is likely to only last 3-5 days at most. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your technician.
