Plasmage is a device that uses patented fractional plasma to sublimate (evaporate) delicate tissue areas with minimal side effects.
It works by creating the 4th state of matter - PLASMA - to achieve this effect. An ionisation of gases from the air occurs, creating a small electric arch, these electric arches are used to treat certain problem, while the surrounding skin remains unaffected. The result is a series of small dots on the skin that are triggers for an immediate reaction - the tissue is tightened, lifted, contoured, and renewed.
The visible results are similar to those seen with surgery, but without the need for a single cut or stitch, this non-invasive device for micro-surgery has pre-set treatment protocols to ensure procedures are both effective and safe. Plasmage is the only device to use fractional plasma meaning that it will not go above the pre-set temperatures during treatment and damage the eye.
Many people are concerned with excess skin around their eyes which is often seen as an ageing and tired look. Plasmage has been developed as the only alternative to surgical blepharoplasty, the procedure removes the excess skin and treats the hooded eye with a procedure called Blefaroplasma.
The laser tip is held 1-2mm away from the surface of the skin, and multiple shots are delivered to the treatment area close together, this will evaporate the skin to lift the excess skin.
The treatment only last around 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the area being targeted.
You are likely to feel a burning sensation after treatment, but that will usually disappear in a couple of hours. We will prescribe you an anti-inflammatory, cold compress, antibiotic ointment and FPS to keep the skin protected while it is healing. After a couple of days the dots will become crusts and the skin will be particularly sensitive.
Results can be seen immediately after your treatment, but you will see even more improvement approximately 8 weeks post treatment. The optimum result occurs between 5 – 6 months after your treatment. A full consultation and assessment will be carried out prior to any treatment and an individual treatment plan developed to meet with your specific needs.
