Plasma Lift   4-D Facial.

Plasma is considered the 4th state of matter and is created when gases in the air are ionised with the help of the Plasma Pen. A small plasma charge known as an arc is created and used to treat problematic skin without spreading the charge to surrounding skin. The discharge results in the sublimation of fluids contained  in superficial parts of the skin, without any unwanted heat transmission  to adjacent tissue. Using the Plasma Pen we are able to treat very specific areas of the epidermis without affecting the surrounding skin or risk of damaging deeper layers of the skin. 

The Benefits Of

                     Plasma Lift.

HIGH ENERGY TREATMENT:

  • PLASMA ENERGY TOUCHES THE SKIN FOR APPROXIMATELY 0.5 S;

  • THE AREA OF THE SKIN TREATED IS RELATIVELY LARGE, E.G. UPPER EYELID;

  • THE DENSITY OF PLASMA SPOTS IS HIGHER THAN WITH LOW ENERGY PROCEDURE;

  • SUITABLE FOR LIFTING AND WRINKLES.

LOW ENERGY TREATMENT:

  • PLASMA ENERGY TOUCHES THE SKIN FOR A QUARTER OF A SECOND;

  • THE AREA OF SKIN TREATED IS SMALLER, E.G. SMILE LINES AROUND THE EYES;

  • THE DENSITY OF PLASMA SPOTS IS LOWER;

  • USED FOR CORRECTION OF SKIN TEXTURE AND DISCOLORATION;

Low energy treatments are often repeated after 3–4 times about 3 weeks apart, each requiring relatively short downtime. However, a single high energy treatment may produce more visible results than a series of low energy treatments, although it is associated with greater discomfort and longer downtime. High energy treatment penetrates far deeper into the dermis, inducing a more powerful healing response and re-modelling of collagen, tightening and contouring.

The Science To Back It.

When the electrical arch – plasma – touches the skin surface, the heat widens the acne and is subsequently transferred into the epidermis all the way to the papillary layer which contains fibroblast cells. The result is con- traction and tightening of the skin cells. Consequently, the excess skin is reduced and the result is comparable to lift procedures or wrinkle reduction. Most, if not all, methods of skin resurfacing are based on creating a controlled skin damage, which activates its healing and this leads to the skin re-modelling and improvement in various signs of aging.

Even though skin layers get damaged by plasma in a controlled manner (by heating, fragmentation, vaporization – sublimation and coagulation), they do not burn off as they largely do under ablative laser and, importantly, there is no open wound during the healing phase. This is extremely important as this approach reduces the risk of side effects such as scarring, infection, loss of pigmentation etc.

After the treatment small dry spots – scabs form. They need 5-7 days to fall off and during this time the client should keep the skin surface clean (use Octenisept and lukewarm water) and protect it with cream provided by technician.

Plasma works similarly to an ablative (fractional) laser. On a minute surface of the skin accurately directed energy damages very specific skin cells to encourage regrowth and renewal. This does not only improve the skin tone and texture, but it can also reduce scarring, improve a number of common skin problems and increase skin contour.
