A needle is used to target the plasma very precisely at the area required. This treatment uses a process known as ‘sublimation’ to effectively treat a variety of skin problems as well as triggering collagen renewal. This treatment is ideal for:

  • Non invasive eye contour surgery – improve eye-bags and eyelids with a result akin to surgery but involving NO surgical incisions. No scalpel, no general anaesthetic, no hospital stay. This treatment has revolutionised the way Aesthetic Physicians are able to rejuvenate the delicate eye area
  • Wrinkle treatment – non-ablative lifting and regeneration
  • Scar treatment
  • Inflammation treatment
  • Broken blood vessels/capillaries/spider veins
  • Trouble-shooting acne cysts/spots, skin tags

What is Plasma?

The universe consists of 99.999% plasma. It is the fourth state of matter following solid, liquid and gas, whereby the gaseous state has been ionised by high temperature and high electricity.

Research conducted by Munich University has demonstrated that plasma is fatal to bacteria, yet provides beneficial stimulation to human cell and helps with regeneration. This makes plasma uniquely relevant for use in skin treatments.

Plasma works on the skin at a number of levels as shown in this diagram.

How do results compare to eyebag/eyelid surgery?

Results are remarkable. See before after photos.

 How does the treatment work for Acne?

The treatment works by killing the bacteria that cause acne as well as promoting healthier skin and cell renewal. Results are not instant, as it takes time for the skin to heal. However, after 3 weeks, these photos show significant reduction in spots. The angry inflammation has gone and skin is much clearer.

This is not normally an uncomfortable treatment, although it depends on the area being treated. If the Plasma Surgical is used for non-surgical eye lift, the delicate eye skin is more sensitive and treatment is more intense. In this case, a local anaesthetic cream is used so that treatment is painless.

The Plasma Shower treatment is more diffuse and does not normally require local anaesthetic.

An ice pack will be available if required to calm any swelling immediately after treatment.

Will I need any time off to recover?

Patients can usually return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment.

When will I see results?

Results are not instant, as it takes a little time for the skin’s renewal and healing processes to work.

After acne treatment, the skin will start to look noticeably clearer and healthier within a few days, but it will take a few weeks for the skin to heal properly.

After eye lift treatment, collagen building and skin tightening happens gradually over a period of around 6 weeks.

      Hi Anna. You should notice a difference after the 1st treatment but would need a course of treatments to see a longer lasting result.
