How Does Plasma Lifting Work?
This device has a small tipped applicator, which emits an electrical discharge. About 1mm above the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed, producing precise arcs of plasma, which will be used to create a pinpoint, grid like pattern over the treatment area. This micro trauma will cause the top layers of the skin to contract and tighten. At the same time, heat is transmitted to the deeper levels, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers that diminish with age.
Who Is A Candidate For Plasma Lifting?
Anyone looking to improve overall skin concerns such as skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, pigment concerns, or stretch marks could benefit from this treatment. The treatment works best on light to medium complexions. It is not recommended on very dark skin. Darker skin has a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypo-pigmentation (light spots) following treatment. It is also contraindicated for pregnant or nursing patients.
What Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated With Plasma Lifting?
It can treat most areas of the face and body. More dramatic results are achieved in the facial and neck areas including: upper and lower eyelids, crow’s feet, glabella frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, marionette lines, jowl/jawline tightening, nasolabial folds, neckline & neck, upper lip lines, lower lip. It can also treat acne scars, stretchmark’s, skin tags, keloids, freckles, and age spots.
What Is The Downtime After Having Plasma Lifting?
After treatment, you can expect swelling and redness. Swelling will begin to subside around day four and scabs will form. These scabs will begin to flake off around day six. It is very important to not pick or rub these scabs and allows them to fall off on their own. Downtime for the face and neck will average about 10 days and 14 to 16 days for body treatments.
Is Plasma Lifting Painful?
The treatment will be mildly to moderately painful depending on the patients’ tolerance and area of treatment. Numbing cream is used to decrease discomfort. We also offer Pro-Nox, a nitrous oxide & oxygen analgesic (laughing gas) to help relieve procedure discomfort an anxiety. Most patients tolerate treatment very well.
Are There Any Risks With Plasma Lifting?
As it is a non-surgical procedure, the risks are minimal.
Swelling will be normal and expected, there is very minimal risk of slight bruising, skin discoloration and scarring. It is crucial to find a professionally trained practitioner to perform this procedure to minimize any possible risks.
When Will I See Results From Plasma Lifting?
Some immediate tightening will be evident. Gradual improvement will occur over a period of 12 weeks. Although one treatment is usually all that is needed, sometimes a second treatment may be required depending on desired results. Results can last approximately three years, but in some cases can be permanent. It is important to remember that aging continues, therefore future maintenance treatments might be required.
