What is Plasma?
Plasma was discovered by Sir William Crookes in 1879 an English physicist. It is a form of matter. It is also known as the 4th state, in addition to liquid, gas and solids.
Plasma pens convert electrical energy into an electrostatic energy which is then transmitted to the probe. At about 1mm from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed and the electrostatic energy produces an arc of plasma which is discharged on the surface of skin (epidermis). This is principle involves the ionization of gases from the air to create a micro electrical discharge causing sublimation (directly turns a solid substance into a glass). The excess skin is sublimated. sublimation is a type of phase transition, or a change in a state of matter. just like melting, freezing, and evaporation. Through sublimation, a substance changes from a solid to a gas without ever passing through a liquid phase.
This created an immediate contraction of the skin tissue on the surface and also creates thermal disruption in the dermis. The probe never touches the skin. By targeting fibroblasts in the dermis, we stimulate collagen and elastin. this controlled trauma created an inflammatory response. The arc creates tiny carbon crusts which look like freckles and fall off around days 4-7 leaving tightened, fresh and rejuvenated skin.
Another important part of the inflammatory response when we apply trauma to the skin is the release of Growth Factors which send a chemical message to the skin instructing collagen strands to lay down. Increased levels of type 3 collagen continue to occur post-treatment and the fibroblast cells continue to produce new collagen for weeks and months after the original treatment has been performed.
We follow a specific pattern to set the points that looks like a grid (also called reduction grid). This arrangement allows the excess skin to shrink. This method is used to treat specific areas of concern without damaging the surrounding tissue.
How PlasmaLift Works?
This innovative technology utilises plasma – formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses – to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres. This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove excess skin, thereby avoiding all risks inherent to the traditional intervention.
The treatment is performed through minute spots made with a pen type device at a certain distance one from the other to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres. Results can be seen immediately but continue to improve over a 6-8 week period and can last up to around 3 years with many results permanent. This is done all without the use for needles, scalpels, anesthetic or costly surgery. Results can be cumulative and in some instances 2 or 3 treatments may be required to delivery optimal results.
The treatment consists of many plasma arc dots spaced closely together and most areas of the face and body can be treated. The procedure normally takes 30-60 minutes to perform. Results are seen instantly although the best appearance is seen after 30-60 minutes to perform. Results are seen instantly although the best appearance is seen after 6-8 weeks. The treatment is performed without causing bleeding and more importantly without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.
1-3 treatments at 6-8 weekly intervals are recommended to give the results similar to a surgical procedure.
