This innovative technology utilises plasma – formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses – to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibers. This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove excess skin. This procedure avoids many of the risks associated with traditional intervention, providing a quick and easy recovery.
The treatment is performed without cutting or need of stitches. The tissues are instantly tightened by changing from a solid to a gas i.e. the plasma energy literally vaporises the excess skin or unwanted lesion with the tightening results being instantly visible as if by magic during treatment.
The treatment is performed through dots made with the Medical Plasma device, at 500 microns apart, to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibres. Each of these dots sublimates (which means to change a substance from a solid into a gas) the superficial skin cells without affecting the important deeper layer known as the basal lamina, without causing bleeding and more importantly without damaging surrounding tissue. See your baggy eyelids immediately smoothed for a more open wide eyed look.
A standard session lasts 20 – 30 minutes depending on the area(s). Patients are required to attend the appointment 30 minutes prior to the actual treatment to have topical numbing cream applied to the area to be treated, to minimise the risk of discomfort during the procedure.
Immediately after the treatment, the treated area(s) will be quite red and tender. Patients may experience some swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area following their treatment and this may last around 3 days. At the site of each dot of treatment a carbon crust immediately forms. These crusts should not be touched for 5-7 days except to camouflage them with oxygenating post-procedure foundation. We recommend Oxygenetix for this purpose.
Most people see significant improvement after the first treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 2-4 weeks. Some patients may opt for more than one treatment and this is subject to your personal expectation.
The treatment stimulates instant shortening of skin fibres and this process continues to take effect in the first 2-4 weeks. The effect of the treatment is subject to the number of treatments, your lifestyle and ageing process and typically lasts for the same amount of time as traditional surgery such as surgical blepharoplasty. You will age as you would otherwise and your skin will continue to relax as part of the ageing process.
