Plasma Elite Treatments

Plasma Elite Treatments

Plasma is formed through ionization of atmospheric gasses – when it arcs on the skin it stimulates instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres this is called sublimation.

This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove excess skin, thereby avoiding all risks inherent to the traditional intervention.
The treatment is performed without cutting, burning or removing excess skin or fat. It uses the difference in voltage between the device and a person’s skin to generate a small electrical arc or plasma discharge.

Plasma Elite Skin Tightening Treatment

A safer and efficient procedure to lift your eyelids and neck.
As we get older, our skin starts to lose elasticity and texture, leading to wrinkles and loose skin around the delicate eye area. Plasma elite skin tightening is a non-surgical blepharoplasty procedure that will lift your eyelids, giving you a younger-looking appearance. The treatment is very efficient for crows feet, bags under the eyes, smokers line around the lips, neck and decollete. The Plasma Elite II can effectively tighten loose upper eyelid skin, can treat under eye bags and wrinkles, as well as improve overall skin texture and elasticity.

The Plasma Pen can also be used for:

  • Facelift and Neck-lift, It is a non-surgical method of skin tightening to lift and rejuvenate loose and sagging skin, therefore making it a great option for the face and neck
  • Removing smoker’s lines and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Removing moles (flat or raised),  warts, and fibromas
  • Treating pigmentation and sunspots to reduce their appearance
  • Post-surgery scars
  • Acne scars
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks

Most areas can be treated within 30-60 minutes. Because this is a medical treatment, clients need to be aware that there is some downtime with the healing process.

Everyone is different but generally there is swelling, crusting and general tightness which can be a bit tender for about 5 days. We do not advise using make up to conceal this as applying anything to the skin can hinder the healing process and could cause an infection.

A full consultation and test patch of the topical anaesthetic cream is required before treatment.

Eyelid Lift

This non-surgical blepharoplasty is known as the ‘non-surgical eyelid lift’, being a safer and effective alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery.

Rather than using lasers or cutting away excess skin, plasma is used to create an arc of electricity that targets superficial skin cells, using precisely applied heat. Ideal for sensitive areas around your eyes.

Plasma Elite FAQ’s

What post-treatment work is required?

The only post-treatment preparation is a 48-hour patch test to check there is no allergic reaction to the numbing cream. We can offer a patch test on the skin of the plasma treatment to determine swelling and healing time if the customer would like this opportunity, but there will be a charge for this of £45.

What can the plasma technology treat?

Loose skin on eyes, crepey neck, lip lines, smokers lip lines, crows feet, flattens moles and removes skin tags.

How does Plasma Elite work ?

There are 4 states of matter.

Solid, liquid, gas and plasma. Plasma energy is created when a gas passes through an electromagnetic field to create ionised gas particles in the air between the device tip and the skin.The tiny holes created in the skin with the plasma pen turn solids into a gas. Therefore, the plasma energy turns the skin to a gaseous state. This process is called sublimation. When the skin is treated via sublimation, the elastic fibres shrink. This tightens and retracts the skin. The results of this treatment are similar to those of surgery but without the scarring or lengthy downtime.It is important to note that the plasma treatment does not damage the surrounding skin.

What conditions can Plasma Elite improve ?

The Plasma Elite II can effectively tighten loose upper eyelid skin, can treat under eye bags and wrinkles, as well as improve overall skin texture and elasticity. The Plasma Pen can also be used for:
Facelift and Neck-lift,It is a non-surgical method of skin tightening to lift and rejuvenate loose and sagging skin, therefore making it a great option for the face and neck
Removing smoker’s lines and wrinkles around the mouth
Removing moles, warts, and fibromas
Treating pigmentation and sunspots to reduce their appearance

Reducing the appearance of stretch marks

How is the plasma pen treatment performed?

A topical anaesthetic cream is applied half an hour before the treatment. While the treatment is relatively pain-free, sublimation does result in a smell similar to burnt hair.

What can I expect after the treatment?

You will be swollen for about 2 days post treatment and small carbon crusts will appear, lasting 5-10 days. These scabs will fall off naturally so do not pick them. Use you Plasmacare aftercare products. Once the crusts have fallen off, there will be mild redness for about one month. It’s important not to scratch or pick at the skin during this time, to prevent infection, pigmentation or scarring.
We do not advise the application of make up whilst the crusts are present. The make up could cause irritation and introduce bacteria into the delicate skin and, the removal of the make up could interfere with the healing process of the crusts. Full aftercare advice and Plasmacare products are include in your treatment.

When will I see the results ?

There will be some initial, superficial results which are apparent immediately. The skin will appear tighter and some lines will be diminished. The next stage of results should be visible after about 2-4 weeks and they will continue to improve as new collagen fibres are formed at about the 3 month.

It is important to note that the Plasma Elite II Pen treatment will not stop the onset of further ageing. Factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, poor diet and sun damage can all contribute to further ageing of the skin. Results are expected to last 2-3 years, and the treatments can be repeated.

What are the complications using Plasma Elite

The treatment is very safe, however, on rare occasions, you can get skin hypo-pigmentation (whitening) or hyperpigmentation (dark patches- generally more common in darker skins).Because of the risk of pigmentation issues, we do not advise anyone with a darker skin type to have this treatment. In patients with lighter skin, you can get persisting redness for a couple of months after the procedure.

How many treatments will I need ?

The number of sessions needed to get the best results will depend on the severity of the loose skin. One treatment is generally enough to see improvements in most people but it will depend on the skin quality, severity of wrinkles and the client’s expectations. A follow up appointment is made at 8 weeks and 3 months.

It can take upto 3 months for the new collagen fibres to form. It is at this stage that a second or even third treatment can be undertaken to achieve the desired outcome. Results can last about 2-3 years.

What is the aftercare?

There is a treatment aftercare gel provided . The area must be treated gently for a few days and the crusts must not be picked or knocked off. Dry healing is best.

Is there any downtime?

It completely depends on the client and the area treated and the natural rate of recovery. It is normal for sensitive areas such as eyelids to become swollen and we would recommend not applying makeup, which to some people this may mean downtime. Some areas weep slightly after treatment; this is simply plasma and is quite natural. As the spots begin to heal they naturally turn into crusts and flake off.
