A plasma flash (small Electrical Charge) creates controlled, light damage to the epidermis (upper layer of skin).
This stimulates fibroblast cells to produce more collagen to repair the skin.
Collagen continues to generate for 4-6 weeks after treatment resulting in lifted, younger, smoother skin.
It’s a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to traditional skin lift procedures. It can be used anywhere on the body where the skin has lost its elasticity. A pen-like device is used which delivers a plasma gas that reacts to the nitrogen molecules in the air creating an electrical charge in the shape of an arc. This “zap” creates a micro injury to the top layer of the skin (epidermis) and sends heat down to the dermal layer. This signals a message to the brain that triggers the body response to wound healing. Fibroblast cells respond to the area and begin the production of new collagen, sped up to renew the skin quickly resulting in firmer tighter skin with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If darker – a skin test can be performed on a tiny area to see if hyperpigmentation occurs
2-5 years with 1 treatment.
It does not stop the aging process, however, so how you treat your skin after can affect the longevity of your treatment.
Numbing cream is applied before the treatment and left on for 25-30 minutes. This makes the procedure virtually painless. It is vital to follow the pretreatment guidelines, in order to maximize the effects of the numbing cream. For instance, drinking coffee or alcohol before, will increase chances of bleeding and pain.
Tightening happens immediately. But the final results will appear when the production of collagen begins after 4 weeks and continues up to 12 weeks. Many are happy with 1 treatment, but some need 2-3 for their perfect results. Treatments can be repeated after 6-8 months.
Carbon crusts will develop where the skin was “zapped” creating little dots. These dots will start to fall off naturally from 3-7 days. It is important you DO NOT PICK at these. If the area worked on was the eyes, you may experience swelling and bruising which lasts just a few days. You will be provided with aftercare products and instruction for the week after the procedure as well as guidelines to follow to achieve the best results.

Contraindications are conditions that may be present on a client and are such that you would not be allowed to proceed with the treatment, unless they have written confirmation from their GP that it is safe to do so.
It is essential that you not only look for these problems, but you should have already asked your client if they were aware of any issues when you did your consultation.
It is vital that you check for contraindications – should you ignore them so that you can do the treatment and get paid, you could find that the treatment makes the problem worse. If you are at all unsure, you should suggest that the client visits his/her GP to have the matter checked before you provide the treatment.
