A revolutionary Plazma skin lift procedure also known as a non-surgical blepharoplasty – it is a non-surgical treatment to improve wrinkles and excess skin.
This is the celebrity’s best kept secret – amazing long-term results with just 10 days downtime from a non-invasive procedure. It tightens and lifts the skin around the treated area with instant results. No cutting, stitching or injections are required!
It’s holistic approach works by stimulating the contraction of skin fibres instantly through sublimation also so-called ‘plasma flash’. This flash – from a hand-held device with a tiny tip – micro beam evaporates very superficially – only within the epidermis at a tiny point, which shrinks the skin without the damage. Further points are placed in a grid across the skin’s surface, pulling the skin tighter. Treats only the area selected, therefore having no effect on surrounding tissue. This process is known as sublimation, which is the process of turning a solid substance straight in to a gas, and there is no electric current flowing.
We are proud to offer an alternative to upper eyelid surgery. It is a simple and safe procedure mainly used to perform a non-invasive eyelid lifting, improve ”hooded eyes” on the upper eyelid in order to obtain satisfying effects after just one treatment! It allows eliminating the first aging signs, rejuvenating the eye area and making the look fresh again. The eyelid correction treatment is recommended for both women and men.
Plasma isn’t only limited to the upper and lower eyelid sagging, it can also treat around and under the eyes – bags and lines as well as effectively improve wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and décolletage, skin imperfections (uneven skin tone and texture), such as skin tags, warts and moles, red thread veins, acne reduction, general and deep scarring, stretch marks.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT PROCESS INVOLVE?
During your initial consultation your therapist will assess your suitability for the treatment before going on to create a bespoke treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Your treatment itself will be a 1 hour appointment in order to factor in the 30min numbing process prior to actual treatment. 2 weeks post-treatment we will book you in for a follow-up appointment so that we can check the results.
is non-invasive – recommended for people who do not want to decide on surgery (blepharoplasty)
is precise – plasma micro-beams are applied only within the epidermis without skin damaging. You will not experience any thinning of the skin post-procedure.
gives immediate effects –After just a 20-minute procedure, the results are visible after the first treatment and last for 2 years or more.
is safe– safe for people with pacemakers and other patients who are not allowed to decide on treatments using electricity. Unlike the surgical alternative, the risk of blindness is eliminated with this very low risk procedure.
is comfortable – there is no need to take a break from everyday activities. Far less downtime is required as opposed to surgery, with minimal chance of side effects.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
The number of treatments required will vary from person to person depending on the amount of excess skin that needs removing. Your therapist will assess the degree of eyelid hooding during your consultation and then advise you regarding the number of treatments required, for optimum results. If multiple treatments are needed, these are completed at 6 week intervals.
Typically, more than one treatment session is recommended for optimum results, depending on the area and indication being treated. If more than one session is required there should be 6 weekly intervals between each one. Often up to three treatment sessions are needed to replicate the effect of a surgical intervention.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Treatment is said to be relatively pain-free but uncomfortable, depending on your tolerance to pain. Some patients do experience mild and manageable sensations of burning and tingling, stinging feeling. A topical aesthetic cream is usually applied to numb the area before treatment starts, to reduce such sensations.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME INVOLVED?
Immediately after treatment, the affected area may feel tender, with slight burning and tingling sensations, but this should only last for a few hours. Later you should expect continued tenderness, redness, swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area, for several days, to a week. Swelling is more common in the area around the eyes.
Treatment leave slight marks that last around 5-7 days, but generally most patients can return to work and resume their daily routine around 3-4 days after their treatment. However, sometimes up to 1 week is required for swelling to completely settle. Slight redness is no longer visible after 3 weeks at the latest.
WHEN WILL I START TO NOTICE RESULTS AND HOW LONG THEY LAST?
Results from Plasma treatment are instantly noticeable and will continue to improve over the months following treatment. These results tend to last at least 2-3 years when treatment can be repeated if necessary.
The treated area will be tender with a tingling sensation that may last several hours.The points of sublimation are about 1mm in diameter, showing as tiny brown carbon crusts or scabs. Tiny dark brown or black spots may appear where individual plasma shots have been fired or a larger burn – like appearance may be seen where the plasma has been sprayed. These will remain for at least a week before dropping off.You must not scratch or pick the area during healing. It is very important that the crusts are left to heal without any interference, to prevent scarring, infection or pigmentation abnormalities. It is normal for swelling to occur and last several days during which it may interfer with your vision. A cold clean compress should be applied to reduce the swelling. For severe swelling anti-inflammatory and / or anti-histmaine medication may be taken. Do not apply a plaster or an occlusive dressing over the treated area. Keep the area clean, dry and protected from bright sunlight with a UVA/UVB sunscreen, until fully healed. Do not use alcohol based cleansers.
If, at any time, the treatment area becomes bright red, hot and tender, contact your practitioner as soon as possible.
CONTRAINDICATIONS AND RISKS
Plasma should also not be used on skin conditions such as scleroderma, facial shingles or severe recurrent cold sores (herpes simplex virus). It also should be avoided by those on steroid medications.
Furthermore, this treatment is not suitable for large eye bags, where excess fat is the main problem; this requires a surgical intervention.Treatment with Plasma is considered a low risk procedure however, there may be some risks of scaring.
One of the more common risks is a change in the pigmentation of the skin in the treated area, either becoming lighter (hypo-pigmented) or darker (hyper-pigmented). To prevent this, your practitioner will advise you with a bespoke aftercare routine.
Hair follicles may be damaged during treatment, resulting in hair loss within the treated area.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it should not be used on those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Although it is a suitable treatment for most skin types, it is not advised for those with very dark skin, because of the risk of hypo-pigmentation that can occur after treatment; a risk that is increased if the carbon crust scabs are disturbed.
In general, its a very safe treatment, so much so that it can even be used on the inner rim of the eye. But as with all treatments there are some potential side effects, such as mild swelling, redness, soreness, itching and crusting of the skin.
