HOW DOES PLASMA BT WORK?
Plasma treatment works by triggering a contraction of the skin fibres to bring about a tightening, lifting and remodelling effect. Plasma BT uses plasma energy to achieve this. The principle involves the ionisation of gases contained in the air to create a miniature “arc” of energy which can be used to treat specific areas of concern without damaging the surrounding areas or applying any unwanted heat. Plasma treatment is much less invasive than laser or diathermy.
The advantage of Plasma is that it offers an alternative to surgery, which itself can be highly invasive, have associated risks and may involve prolonged downtime. There are minimal downtime and risk of complication associated with Plasma treatment.
The depth of the treatment will determine the recovery time as well as the risks. The treatment of deeper wrinkles and scars may produce more discomfort and prolong downtime, but your practitioner can manage this effectively for you if necessary.
Immediately following treatment, the skin may feel tight and a throbbing, burning sensation may be felt. Sunburn-like redness can be seen immediately after treatment and the small ‘dots’ from the treatment will be visible. The skin will feel hot and your practitioner may ask you to apply an ice pack or use a cooling fan. Swelling, discolouration and flaking can be expected in the days post-treatment. Once the redness has subsided after 1-2 days the skin will appear darker. This is old skin and will quickly be replaced by ‘new’ pink skin.
The full effects of the treatment will be seen at around 6-8 weeks following treatment. It will take this long for the new collagen formation and remodel to be complete. The results are permanent and should last 3-5 years.
