Plasmage is a cosmetic and medical treatment for non-invasive micro surgery. It allows the non-invasive removal of imperfections and skin lesions. It is an excellent alternative in the treatments of diseases that previously were subjected to be treated in the field of aesthetic surgery for example: Correction drooping eyelids. Plasmage works by generating plasma through an electric discharge that sparks when the tips gets close enough to the skin but never touching it. A series of dots are created on the skin which trigger an instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibers, to create a lifting, remodeling and rejuvenating effect to the treated area.
Plasmage is used to treat:
2. Acne/ Acne Scars
3. Upper and lower eyelids
6. Yellow lesions on the skin
7. Lentigo / pigmentation
What does the treatment involve?
CONSULTATION: At the start of any Plasmage treatment a thorough consultation will take place, where our specialized dermatologist will evaluate your skin and discuss with you your specific skin needs and concerns.
PROCESS: During the procedure the treated area is cleanse and an anesthetic cream is applied to the area being treated. The device then creates a series of small dots on the skin that are triggers for an immediate reaction – the tissue is tightened, lifted, contoured, and renewed. Plasmage uses the fourth state of matter – gas – to achieve this effect. An ionisation of gases from the air occurs, creating a small electric arch. These electric arches are used to treat a certain problem, while the surrounding skin remains unaffected. The skin then contracts over time due to the extra collagen build up. This in turn builds up the tightness and tautness of the area. The tissue retraction tightens and smooths out the skin. The results are the reduction of excess skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
TIME: The procedure takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
FINISHING: After the procedure you might notice redness for the first few hours after the treatment, this is normal and will subside.
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS NEEDED: If necessary, the procedure may be repeated after 3 months. Therapy is long-lasting, with one procedure being recommended once a year to extend and maintain the results.
