With our state of the art Plasma Pen, we force the skin tissue to contract virtually immediately by thermally disrupting the skin as well as fibroblasts. This micro-trauma stimulates new collagen (neocollagenesis) and helps release and activate essential proteins and growth factors like cytokines and fibroblasts, which makes more collagen than before it was disrupted. Eventually, excess skin dries off to form tiny crusts that fall off like dandruff in just a few days. New collagen is formed over a period of up to 6 months.
Our Plasma pen is one of the finest tipped 0.4mm probes to deliver super precision. The benefits of which are a great tightening effect, a quicker healing process and less healing time for you. The plasma pen can be used on the skin for areas that require tightening and rejuvenation. This treatment is perfect for difficult to treat areas such as directly under the eyes and across the eyelids.

Questions & Answers
The treatment can be uncomfortable, and really depends on your pain threshold. For a comfortable experience we recommend attending your appointment on time to allow the topical anaesthetic application to have the required time to absorb and take effect in the areas you would like to have treated. The topical anaesthetic is applied for 30 mins for the best effect.
Your practitioner will apply topical anaesthetic to the skin’s surface for 30 mins prior to the treatment, where you will lie comfortably on your treatment couch waiting for the anaesthetic cream to take effect. After 30 mins the cream will be removed and the treatment will commence.using a small. Cooling gel will be applied to the skin, before your treatment is completed and you can return home.
An immediate tightening effect will be seen after the treatment. One the scabs have healed and fallen off, the maximum results can be seen 6 months later.
The meaning of a successful treatment will vary from person to person. Your practitioner will tell you if you'll need to comsine your treatment with other treatments in order to achieve the best results. For example, hollow skin won't be resolved from this treatment alone, and dermal fillers may also be required.
Once collagen is formed, the natural ageing process of breaking down the collagen will then take place. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors can contribute to the collagen breakdown such as UV exposure and smoking.
This is a single treatment, but depending on the skin laxity, more than one treatment may be required.
The skin will have multiple millimetre trauma marks to the skin’s surface, and as healing occurs the skin will appear dry and flaky. In the first couple of days, redness and swelling will be present. Every individual will vary, others may have more swelling, whereas some may swell for over a week. Pigmentation from the small marks can be present for longer if the scabs come away earlier than expected, for example when lying on one side of the face whilst sleeping.
Tenderness, redness and swelling are common side effects and are to be expected following the treatment. As the skin starts to heal, itching may occur. After care gel that is included in the price of the treatment, should be used to alleviate the side effects. Other side effects are not limited to, but may include slight redness for a few weeks after the treatment, with a risk of scarring, infection and hyperpigmentation (darker skin) or hypopigmentation (lighter skin), being rare but possible.
You will be required to stay out of direct sun light during the healing process. Whilst the scabs are still present you won’t be able to get the areas wet such as having a shower, steam room, swimming or sweating from exercising. An aftercare gel will be given after treatment for you to use during the healing process (included in the cost).
It is important to have a test patch prior to the treatment. No active sun exposure is important with no active tan being present for the test patch and treatment. We suggest not to apply any cosmetics beforehand, and you should let us know about any recent medical conditions and medications taken.
We advise that you don’t take a hot shower on the day of the treatment, and to keep the area dry for the duration of the scabs being present. It is advised that you don’t apply make-up to the area for the duration of the scabs, as attempting to remove the makeup at the end of the day, can cause the microscabs to come away from the skin too early and cause scarring. Sun exposure should be avoided for 4 weeks after the treatment, sunblock application is highly recommended for 4 to 6 weeks after the initial treatment.
Reasons you may not be suitable for the treatment are due to the following. In which case, we would ask for a specialist’s letter stating that they are happy for you to proceed with the treatment, where applicable: Metal plates or pins Severe circulatory deficiencies inc. ischemic tissue, thrombosis, severe uncontrolled blood pressure Severe Cardiovascular conditions Pacemaker Pregnancy Current or recent haemorrhage Malignancy and chemotherapy in the past 3 years. We need to be cautious with certain illnesses, our nurse will confirm your full medical history prior to commencing any treatments.
