How does it work?
Plasma is often referred to as “the fourth state of matter”, after solid, liquid and gas. It is created when electrostatic energy mixes with an ionised gas. When the thermal energy from a plasma device reaches around 1mm from the skin, it mixes with oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere and creates a plasma arc, which vaporises upon contact with the skin.
This forces the immediate contraction of the skin tissue at the surface and causes thermal disruption within the skin layers below, especially to the fibroblasts, which is the skin’s support structure. As the body’s healing response is triggered, collagen and elastin are produced as a result, leaving the skin lifted, tighter and firmer. Results can be seen immediately but continually improve over the following weeks, with final results being reached by week twelve.
We can treat any area of the body where there is loose and sagging skin including forehead lines, crows feet, marionette lines, nasolabial lines, smokers lines, turkey neck and so much more, and is the only treatment outside plastic surgery that can be performed on the eyelids.
Our device is the Plaxel and is the latest technology which utilises ‘true plasma’. It fires violet sparks and not the electric yellow which you may have seen before. There is no burning or charring on the epidermis and no smell of burning skin unlike some other devices.
