Plasma BT Blepharoplasty

Simply aesthetics is delighted to be offering the latest in aesthetic advances Plasma therapy.
It has two uses, which are:

Plasma SurgicalTM – non-surgical treatments for eye rejuvenation (upper and lower blepharoplasty), crows feet, wrinkle reduction, skin tag removal

• Plasma ShowerTM – active acne, pigment removal, skin regeneration and tightening

Plasma is an ionised gas with electrical energy which works throughout the surface of the skin to the epidermal layer.

As energy flows deeper within the skin, its intensity and effects change.

Skin surface – kills germs and bacteria by breaking bacterial molecular structure
Epidermis – dramatically increase the skin absorption rate by temporarily breaking the cell adhesion molecules
Dermis – tightens aged skin and stimulates generation of collagen and fibroblasts

• Plasma SurgicalTM

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

• Plasma ShowerTM

A separate handpiece is designed to remove bacteria and aid absorption within the skin, stimulating skin regeneration and boosting collagen for clearer, healthier and firmer skin. This treatment is ideal for:

  • Acne treatment – sterilisation of acne bacteria
  • Skin regeneration – tightening the skin
  • Pigmentation treatment – promoting a clearer complexion, improving skin tone
  • Inducing absorption of serums or solutions, chosen to suit the patient’s skin needs
  • Wrinkle treatment – non-ablative lifting and regeneration

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.

How does plasma work on the skin?

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.

Does it hurt?

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 can be more tender.  A topical anaesthetic cream is used so that treatment is more comfortable. The Plasma Shower treatment is more diffus and does not normally require local anaesthetic. An ice pack will be available if required to calm any swelling 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.
