Plasma


Improvements in skin without surgery

If you have mild to moderate droopy eyelids, loose baggy skin under the eyes, or pigmentation, acne scar concerns, the range of Plasma Solutions could help to improve the condition without surgery. Plasma could also improve skin tone for that radiant glow.

Very often, the upper eyelid skin droops down with age, and bedroom eyes are no longer sexy when they are a tad too heavy! The levator muscle is responsible for lifting the eyelid and as you aged, that muscle can stretch and, as a result, cause the eyelid to fall. Coupled with the lost in elasticity of the surrounding skin around the eyes, you’ll be cursed by a tired-looking, droopy gaze 24/7. The Plasma Eyelift engages cutting edge nitrogen plasma technology to tighten and lift the eyelids and undereye area.

At completely customizable settings, it delivers precise, controlled pulses of energy which creates uniform tissue heating at a depth which stimulates the remodeling and regeneration of collagen. Plasma provides exceptional all round peri-orbital rejuvenation to our aging peepers, tackling droopy eyelids, dark eye circles, fine under-eye lines and pesky Crow’s Feet. With its high safety margin without any risk of injury to the eyes, it can be applied directly to the upper and lower eyelids, as well as the wider periorbital region— areas that are often difficult to treat, as other technologies failed to deliver consistent results or cannot be safely applied to treat these sensitive areas effectively.

By engaging a unique nitrogen plasma technology to provide consistent, controlled rapid heating over treated areas, Plasma stimulates collagen remodeling in deep tissue with significant tightening of the overlying skin. Unlike traditional ablative technologies, It does not cause vaporization or charring of the skin. With the intact skin acting as a natural barrier, this unique treatment profile of Plasma allows the photo-damaged layers to undergo controlled thermal modification to promote rapid healing. Combined with a well curated post treatment skincare regime, there cannot be a more superior dressing for the skin than your own skin cells.

How Does Plasma Work?

This treatment delivers plasma energy in highly precise, controlled pulses to cause uniform rapid heating of tissue that stimulates a significant physiological response without creating an open wound. Between the Zone of Thermal Damage (ZTD) and the Zone of Thermal Modification (ZTM) is where neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis takes place, with a depth that correlates to the adjustable level of energy delivered as pre-determined by the operator.

The treatment utilizes plasma energy, also known as the “4th state of matter” to bring about its dermatological benefits. When ultra-high frequency RF is combined with inert nitrogen gas in the hand-piece, a highly energized state known as Plasma energy is generated. Non-fractionated and non-chromophore dependent by nature, Plasma energy allows uniform absorption and adequate heating of targeted tissue without disrupting the epidermis or outer layer of skin. The plasma energy emitted from the system is delivered in controlled pulses with great precision, ensuring uniform heating of deep tissue which in turn stimulates neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis, rebuilding new stores to replace old damaged collagen and elastin with no island of untreated skin left behind.

Plasma Micropeel

Either as a standalone treatment or paired with the Plasma Eyelift, by improving the appearance of stubborn pigmentation and surface imperfections such as large pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone, the Plasma Micropeel has it all covered.

Besides being deeply exfoliating to restore glow to tired looking complexions by allowing the younger and healthier looking skin cells beneath to come through, the controlled pulses of plasma energy actually initiates cellular renewal and self-repair, giving you more youthful and supple looking skin that you can’t stop yourself from touching!

What Are the Major Benefits of Plasma?

“One of the key selling features of Plasma is the extremely high safety margin when applied to both the upper and lower eyelids, areas that bear the brunt of aging and often known to be tricky to treat. Plasma offers all round periorbital rejuvenation in a safe and effective manner without any risk of injury to the eyes.”


A fully customizable system which offers great versatility, Plasma allows high, moderate or low energy treatment choices, tailored to suit the specific needs and lifestyle of each individual patient. At lower energy levels, the technology works well on wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, stretch marks and even Actinic Keratoses, a form of pre-cancerous skin lesions. At higher energy levels, the skin rejuvenating prowess of Plasma is more pronounced, improving the appearance of photo-damaged skin, acne scarring and deeper wrinkles. We are also talking about more effective skin tightening, improved facial contours and all round skin rejuvenation for matured skins.

The unique thermal profile of Plasma allows it to tackle a wide variety of skin conditions effectively with manageable downtime. 

  • Plasma Eyelift
    Your eyes aren’t just a window to the soul, they can also be a telltale sign of aging! To begin with, the skin around your eyes is incredibly thin and can easily be damaged by any number of things including habitual rubbing, constant tugging while applying eye makeup, lack of moisture, one too many sleepless nights, and most commonly the natural loss of collagen with age. Very often, the upper eyelid skin droops down with age, and bedroom eyes are no longer sexy when they are a tad too heavy. The levator palperbrae superioris muscle is responsible for lifting the eyelid and as you aged, that muscle can stretch and, as a result, cause the eyelid to fall. Coupled with the lost in elasticity of the surrounding skin around the eyes, you’ll be cursed with a tired looking gaze 24/7.

  • Plasma Skin Renew
    This extremely efficient skin renewal treatment is by no means playing second fiddle to the more familiar fractional CO2 lasers, often touted as the gold standard of resurfacing procedures. By diminishing the appearance of unwanted blemishes such as age spots, sunspots and any surface scarring including deeper wrinkles, acne scars, old surgical scars and even stretch marks, Plasma Skin Renew can radically transform your complexion, especially when done over a series of 4 to 6 sessions with relatively low downtime. Visible results including appreciable skin tightening and subtle lifting are not transient, as clinical studies demonstrated long lasting effects with intense fibroblast activity supporting continued neocollagenesis and reduced deposition of elastin material for more than 12 months post treatment.

  • Plasma Perfection
    Through months of trials, research and refinining our protocols, we present the Plasma Pore Perfection treatment programme. We use a combination of pre-treatment and post-treatment products to prep and protect the skin, enabling the safe use of higher settings for better results. The treatments are tailored in accordance with the patients’ skin type. Previously, we were limited by the protracted downtime that comes with higher settings therapy. This is no longer the case. With Plasma Perfection, one can expect better improvement to pore size, fine lines and wrinkles with every treatment. We recommend a series of 3 sessions, done at monthly intervals. Apart from skin smoothening and textural benefits, skin tightening and lifting are also more pronounced. In cases of acne scarring, especially when combined with Rejuran S micro injections, better treatment outcomes can be achieved. Individual results may vary.

Conclusion

In conclusion, a nitrogen plasma treatment works by utilizing a controlled thermal energy delivery system, with the science behind it consisting of two main steps.

Step 1 - Plasma Generation: The device generates nitrogen plasma by ionizing nitrogen gas. Plasma is the fourth state of matter and consists of charged particles.

Step 2 - Precise Energy Delivery: The generated plasma is delivered to the skin's surface in a controlled and precise manner, ensuring targeted treatment. The plasma releases thermal energy upon contact with the skin. This controlled heat has several effects on the skin's structure, as follows:

  • Collagen Stimulation: The thermal energy stimulates the production of collagen, a key protein responsible for skin strength and elasticity.
  • ⁠Tissue Contraction: Collagen contraction occurs, leading to immediate skin tightening.
  • Skin Renewal on a Cellular Level: The controlled heat encourages cellular turnover and regeneration, improving overall skin texture. By stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin, fine lines and wrinkles are also reduced. The treatment can also contribute to scar reduction by promoting tissue regeneration.

Understanding the science behind nitrogen plasma treatment helps explain its skin rejuvenation effects and its ability to address various cosmetic concerns. By understanding the science above, we can see why Plasma is a popular treatment option for these concerns:

  • Skin Tightening: Stimulates collagen production, leading to improved skin elasticity and a tighter appearance.
  • Wrinkle Reduction: Targets fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen remodeling and tightening loose skin.
  • Texture Improvement: Enhances skin texture and improves the appearance of scars by encouraging the formation of new, healthier skin cells.
  • Overall Rejuvenation: Promotes a more youthful appearance by revitalizing and refreshing the skin.

Our Plasma treatment can be done as a standalone procedure or combined with other compatible solutions to suit one’s skin type and issues for best results.

FAQs

What Is the Procedure Like?
To enhance patient comfort, a thin layer of numbing cream is applied onto the skin prior to treatment and left on for 10 to 15minutes. A soothing Freia Oxy-Peptide Bio-Facial Mask is subsequently applied to optimally hydrate the skin prior to your Plasma treatment. The Plasma treatment is often described as a warm blast of air with a prickling sensation that is largely bearable, even when treating sensitive areas such as the upper and lower eyelids. Immediately post treatment, the treated area(s) may appear a little flushed or red.

What Kind Of Downtime Do I Expect?
There may be some redness and skin sensitivity over the upper and lower eyelids immediately post treatment. This usually resolves within the next 24 to 48 hours. Depending on the settings which governs the intensity of treatment, there may be mild skin flaking over the next couple of days. If you have an important event scheduled, we would recommend you to inform and discuss with your attending doctor on the kind of downtime that is acceptable to you, and preferable to have the treatment at least a week prior to minimize the risk of these common side effects.

What Kind of Post Treatment Care Should I Be Aware Of?
It is important to avoid unnecessary sun exposure and be adequately protected from any. Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 50 or more to protect your skin during both the healing phase and for several months after treatment. When outdoors under direct sunlight, the use of sunglasses, an umbrella or a wide brimmed-hat should be considered for added protection.

Get your doctor to review and assess your usual skin care regime. Following treatment, harsh ingredients such as retinol and fruit acids (AHAs/BHAs), commonly found in many anti-aging products, should be laid off for at least a week. Your skin may feel dryer than usual, keep it well hydrated at all times with a good moisturizer. If you are using products to tone down the redness, opt for non-comedogenic mineral makeup which will allow your skin to breathe and prevent pores from clogging during the healing phase.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Each person’s skin is unique, but clinical studies suggest that for most patients looking for improved texture and skin tightening with notice appreciable results after 4 to 6 sessions done regularly at monthly intervals. One of the major advantages to this treatment is the ease and precision to specifically target the upper, lower eyelid and wider periorbital region, areas which bear the brunt and display the first signs of aging, and typically difficult to treat without invasive surgery.

Results are accumulative and progressively evident with each subsequent treatment performed.
