Plasma Skin Tightening

Plasma skin tightening, youthful appearance,

Not Plastic Surgery

Plasma Skin Tightening is considered a soft surgical procedure. It is a NON invasive permanent way to remove excess skin, lift sagging areas or to smooth out deep lines. It can be done anywhere on the body. The results will be seen after the full period of healing and are similar to plastic surgery, botox, and fillers.

Minimal to No Down Time

Epidermis will visibly heal within 5-10 days , so there is minimal to no down time. Dermis will continue to tighten, build collagen and completely heal up to 3 Months

What is Plasma Skin Tightening

Plasma skin tightening is the newest cosmetic procedure to combat wrinkles, loss of collagen, and sagging skin? As we age, the dermal layer of our skin thins, we produce less collagen, and we lose elasticity. All of these factors produce sagging and wrinkling of the skin. The Plasma Pen is a soft-surgery procedure targeting a wide variety of skin conditions including loss of elasticity, sagging, and wrinkles that have been traditionally treated with fillers or plastic surgery.


WHAT IS THE PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING DEVICE?

Plasma skin tightening is the world’s most advanced, non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, and sagging, dull skin. The plasma skin tightening device is an FDA approved, CE approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy, a technique used to stimulate production of collagen in the skin.


HOW DOES THE PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?

Our highly trained and certified plasma skin tightening technicians use the device to delivery soft-surgery plasma fibroblasting. The plasma significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces, and regenerates practically any area of the skin. 


Plasma skin device converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen and transmits that energized gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen.



HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Plasma skin tightening results are impressive but should not be proposed as an alternative to surgery in cases of moderate to severe skin laxity. Only surgery can achieve these kinds of results. You will typically see immediate tightening along with cumulative improvements over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin. In some cases it may require more than one session depending on the desired results.


PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING VS. COSMETIC SURGERY

  • No scalpel, no cutting and no ablation of the skin
  • No stitches and no scars
  • Very low risk procedure with minimal side effects
  • Short downtime
  • No thinning of the skin and more uniform that ablative resurfacing using lasers
  • No asymmetries and no risks of any overcorrection
  • Cost effective
  • Long lasting results – is a permanent procedure but due to the aging process lasting results vary greatly and touch ups can be needed. On average 2-3yrs

IS THE PLASMA SKIN TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Plasma skin treatment is mildly to moderately uncomfortable. Everyone’s pain level is different and some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. Numbing cream is helpful in reducing the discomfort during treatment.


WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE PLASMA SKIN TREATMENT?

Plasma skin tightening is a relatively safe treatment, particularly when compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures. However, no procedure is without risks and it’s important to review and understand the contraindications and risks. Risks include:

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Scabbing and crusting
  • Skin discoloration
  • Scarring
  • Infection can occur if proper aftercare is not taken


WHAT DOWNTIME CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY PLASMA SKIN TREATMENT? 

There IS downtime. “Downtime” is very subjective. What you think “looks bad” and/or is “uncomfortable” can be very different from someone else’s perception. If you are comparing it to cosmetic surgery, then no, the downtime is minimal. If you are comparing it to a light chemical peel where no one can tell you did anything and you are just a bit flaky everywhere, then no.

  • Redness, swelling and scabbing in the treatment area
  • Average of 8 days downtime on the face and neck areas
  • Average of 10 to 14 days on the body, depending on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment
  • Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 3
  • After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form.
  • Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck)

Please be aware that the days indicated are simply guidelines for average healing time. Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the after care protocol: no drinking alcohol, no smoking and no picking/scrubbing. If your health is compromised in any way, this can also extend your healing time and negatively affect your results.


WHAT SKIN TYPES MAY NOT BE GOOD CANDIDATES FOR PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING?

Darker skin tones (African American, African, Latin, Native American, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian ancestry and people of mixed ethnicities) may not good candidates for plasma skin tightening. We are committed to safe and effective treatments for all. When in doubt, we don’t risk it! We do not provide plasma skin tightening treatments on Fitzpatrick skin types 4-6:

Contraindications

Plasma Skin Tightening Contraindications

ALOPECIA: This is an autoimmune disease resulting in hair loss. Sufferers may be more sensitive to treatment but there should be no problems treating alopecia sufferers with plasma pen.

ANAEMIA: Anaemia is a condition characterized by a deficiency of the hemoglobin content of red corpuscles. These clients will bleed more profusely and will take longer to heal.

ANESTHETICS: If you are allergic to topical lidocaine. However we can proceed w out using a numbing agent.

ASTHMA: Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the air passages resulting in the temporary narrowing of the airways and making it difficult to breathe. Asthma often requires the use of an inhaler to ease breathing. Regular use of an inhaler will cause thinning of the skin and increased vascularity. If you have asthma, you may bleed more easily and sometimes bruise. Your skin may be more sensitive and take longer to heal.

BIRTHMARKS AND PORT WINE STAINS: These cannot and must not ever be treated with plasma skin treatment.

BLEPHAROPLASTY: Excess fat and skin are surgically removed from the upper and lower eyelid. If a patient has had blepharoplasty (and our technique is often referred to as non-surgical blepharoplasty), you must wait for 3 months post-blepharoplasty (or longer if there is still pronounced redness in the area) before a plasma skin treatment.

BOTOX: It is recommended to wait at least 21 days after BOTOX injections. It is preferable to have your plasma skin treatment performed prior to BOTOX being administered or when the BOTOX is just about due for a top up.



BREASTFEEDING: The plasma skin treatment cannot be performed on breastfeeding mothers.



BROW, FOREHEAD OR FACELIFT: Please allow three (3) months after your brow, forehead, or facelift to determine your suitability for plasma skin treatment.



BRUISING OR BLEEDING: Bruising or bleeding easily may indicate an underlying health problem, and if you are prone to bruise or bleed easily, you may take longer to heal from your plasma skin treatment.



CANCER: If you are undergoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy then we must allow leave 5 weeks either side of treatment to be treated with the plasma pen. If you are undergoing cancer treatment, you should check with your oncologist to find out when your blood count is most suitable to receive treatment. If the cancer is terminal, we may proceed with a doctor’s written consent.



CATARACTS: Everything Beauty technicians may perform the plasma skin treatment with a doctor’s written consent (if treating the eye area).



CONTACTS: Contact lenses must be removed before any treatment close to the eye, and must not be used for up to 72 hours post-procedure. We cannot begin to stress the importance of ensuring contact lenses are removed pre-treatment.



DIABETES: Diabetics have a tendency to both bleed and bruise easily, so you may find it more uncomfortable and the healing process may be lengthier. Some clients may need to wait longer between treatments.



DRY EYE: During a treatment, we may use more eye lubricant and saline solution throughout the treatment to keep you comfortable.



EPILEPSY: If it has been two years since your last seizure, we may proceed with the Plasma Pen treatment. Plasma skin treatment may trigger an epileptic event, and Everything Beauty will request that you complete a consent form as well as have someone bring with you at your appointment.



LASIK OR EYE SURGERY: If you have recently undergone any laser surgery for the eye, such as LASIK, it is recommended to wait 8-12 weeks post surgery.



ALLERGIES OR HAYFEVER: If your eyes are red, watering, puffy or the skin is inflamed and red, your Celebrity Skin technician will recommend delaying the plasma skin treatment until symptoms have passed.



HEMOPHILIA: Hemophilia is contraindicated for plasma skin treatment, and not safe for hemophiliac patients.



HERPES: Herpes Simplex is a viral infection commonly referred to as a cold sore or fever blister – usually around the mouth. If you have ever had a cold sore, you are more likely to have an outbreak after plasma skin treatment in that area. Everything Beauty suggests that you ask your physician for an antiviral treatment, such as acyclovir at least 5 days before treatment and 5 days after treatment.



HIV/AIDS: Plasma skin treatment is not safe for individuals with HIV / AIDS / Hepatitis or other immune disorders.



HYPERPIGMENTATION: This is an over-production of melanin which has permanently damaged the surface of the skin. It is more commonly seen in Afro-Caribbean, Mediterranean, Asian and Latin skin types. It presents as darker patches of skin. Unfortunately, plasma skin  treatment is not appropriate for anyone with hyperpigmentation or having skin types 4-6 on Fitzpatrick Scale.



INJECTIONS/FILLERS: It is recommended to wait at least 21 days after the filler has been administered before doing a plasma skin treatment. It is also common for lips with large amounts of filler or fat in them to have slower or compromised healing. In some cases, the lips can become infected more easily during the healing process after working close to the lip.



KIDNEY/LIVER DISEASE: Everything Beauty requests written consent from a doctor if you have kidney or liver disease.



LUPUS: Due to the inflammation and swelling associated with lupus, the plasma skin treatment cannot be safely performed.



MITRAL VALVE PROLAPSE: If a you require antibiotics when you visit your dentist, then you will need to do the same prior to any plasma skin treatment.



PREGNANCY: Like any cosmetic procedure, the plasma skin treatment comes with the risk of complications, including infection. These infections can cause risk to fetal health and even cause the loss of the baby. For these reasons, Everything Beauty technicians will not perform plasma skin treatments on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.



RETINAL DETACHMENT: Retinal Detachment is where the retina peels away from its underlying layer of support tissue. Initial detachment may be localized but without rapid surgical treatment the entire retina may detach, leading to vision loss and blindness. We ask that if you have experienced retinal conditions, that you obtain a written consent form from your ophthalmic surgeon prior to commencing plasma skin treatment in the eye area.



SKIN DISORDERS (PSORIASIS,ECZEMA, DERMATITIS): All skin disorders can make the skin exceedingly dry and treatment more uncomfortable because the skin is usually thinner and more sensitive. It is not recommended to treat any areas with the plasma pen that are affected by any of these skin disorders.



SCARS (HYPERTROPHIC, KELOID): This type of scar is raised instead of being flat and does not grow, and remain within the perimeter of the original wound and flatten over time. When new, they are often purple/pink becoming more pink/white as they mature. Unfortunately the plasma skin treatment is not appropriate for hypertrophic scars.



SHINGLES: Please wait 6 months after a shingles outbreak before undergoing a plasma skin treatment.



STIES OR CONJUNCTIVITIS: If you suffer from sties or conjunctivitis, please wait at least 6 weeks following treatment prior to undergoing your Plasma Pen procedure. It is possible that the plasma skin treatment may cause the condition to recur if having the eye area treated. In some cases we may request written consent from your physician prior to commencing plasma skin treatment.



THYROID: If you suffer from underactive thyroid, you may find that your healing time is slightly longer than typical.



TRICHOTILLOMANIA: If you are prone to picking, the plasma skin treatment may not be appropriate due to the increased risk of infection and hyperpigmentation associated with additional trauma to the skin caused by trichotillomania.



VITILIGO: Unfortunately, clients with vitiligo are not good candidates for plasma skin treatment due to the risk associated with outbreaks in other areas of the body or face.

How to Prepare For Plasma Skin Tightening

Like most skin rejuvenation treatments, there may be some side-effects post-treatment and recovery from plasma skin treatment. You must follow these important guidelines carefully if you wish to enjoy optimal results and protect your investment in plasma skin treatment.


Although for most, plasma skin treatment is virtually pain-free, your own treatment may be moderately uncomfortable and sensitive depending on where you are being treated. Especially eyelid procedures where the skin is at its thinnest and your own sensitivities and tolerances.


Before Your Treatment


1. Avoid any kind of tanning (Spray tan- ning, tanning injections, sun tanning and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker skinned. You may even wish to consider using a natural Tyrosinase Inhibitor to help ensure there is no overproduction of pigment in the skin aka hyperpigmentation.


2. Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with the plasma en, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox, and/or fillers, as this may prevent your treatment being performed by your technician at the time you want it.

  • No facial acids (Retin A, salicylic, glycolic) 14 days before or 21 days after plasma skin treatment.
  • No Botox or fillers 21 days before or after plasma skin treatment.
  • No Micro needling/PRP 21 days before or after plasma skin treatment.
  • No laser or peels (depending on in- tensity of peel) for 90 days before or after plasma skin treatment.
  • Surgical procedures like face lifts you must wait at least 9 months post-op/before plasma skin tightening.
