Plasma Skin Tightening is a revolutionary treatment which has been called the new non-surgical facelift. The treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten the skin, specifically around the upper and lower eyes and neck area.
The plasma skin tightening treatment works by applying concentrated Plasma Flashes, a form of electrical arc, directly to the skin. This is applied in a symmetrical area of the skin to ensure even tightening. The application of the plasma flash to the skin stimulates the contraction of skin fibres, tightening the skin in the targeted area.
Many clients only need one treatment to get their desired results, though follow-up appointments are available if necessary. The full results of the first treatment will be visible 8 weeks after the initial treatment, at which point you can make another appointment if you want the skin to be tightened further.
Plasma Skin Tightening is much more effective than a simple tightening cream or over-the-counter product.
After treatment, you can expect results to last up to 1 to 2 years, depending the the individual and their skin. The positive effect of the Plasma Tightening treatment will be noticeable almost immediately after the first treatment and continuing over 4-8 weeks. Depending on the location and individual treated and the desired results, an additional treatment can be made after 6 to 8 weeks.
Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe and effective procedure in thousands of patients. However, as with most cosmetic procedures, patients are likely to experience some minor side effects after treatment, lasting up to 5-10 days. These may include:
To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare instructions given to you prior to your treatment.
A numbing agent is placed on the treatment area and left to take effect for 15 to 30 minutes.
After the application of numbing agent, the treatment is virtually painless, though you may feel some heating and minor irritation. Treatment time will depend on the area being treated.
Final results are visible 6 to 8 weeks after treatment. Follow up treatments may be performed after 6 to 8 weeks depending on your skin’s healing.
During your first appointment you will be given aftercare instructions. Following these instructions is critical for best results. No exfoliators or harsh cleansers can be used in the week following treatment. You should also avoid rubbing or scratching the treated area.
