What is Plasma Fibroblast?

Plasma is the fourth state of matter: Liquid, Solid, Gas and Plasma. The treatment involves using Plasma in order to cause an instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres causing shortening of the targeted fibres, thus resulting in the reduction of the skin surface.

The final result is an improvement of the firmness and tension of the skin lifting effect. Since Plasma energy affects the deeper dermal layers, the result is a lifted contour, a decrease in deep wrinkles, thicker and firmer skin. Plasma then promotes new collagen protein which causes the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin. The local fibroblasts (a cell in connective tissue which produces collagen and other fibres responsible for wound healing) stimulate the collagen formation by heating the dermis of the skin and it then acts as a new deep foundation for the skin. This produces further delayed tightening, which only becomes evident slowly over the next few months.

 

An example of how plasma fibroblast's device works is by creating a pulse of ultra-high radio-frequency energy from the device generator that subsequently converts nitrogen gas into plasma within the hand piece. Nitrogen is used for the gaseous source because it purges oxygen from the skin surface, thereby minimising the risk of unpredictable hot spots, charring, and scar formation on the skin. The plasma emerges from the distal end of the device hand piece, immediately transferring the stored thermal energy to the skin surface. The process exhibits a very low thermal time constant, so it is virtually instantaneous. Every pulse of plasma energy released onto the target produces uniform tissue heating. The hand piece does not come in direct contract with the skin. In contrast to ablative lasers, plasma resurfacing leaves a layer of intact, desiccated epidermis that acts as a natural biologic dressing and promotes a more rapid recovery than would be observed with ablative treatments. The desiccated tissue sloughs over the ensuing 4-5 days, leaving a new epidermis formed beneath. PSR is by definition non-ablative, not chromophore dependent, and rapid thermal penetration of the skin produces zones of thermal damage and deeper zones of thermal modification with increased fibroblast activity. PSR can be used safely in Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV.

This is the ultimate treatment for anti-ageing and tightening the skin, covering common skin problems, including excess skin, wrinkles, Crow's Feet, pigmentation, acne scars, skin tags, moles, red spots. The treatment is also non-invasive therefore may be an alternative option if looking for a safer method of improving one's skin. 

Client Advice 

Pre-Treatment

- It is recommended that sun protection creams should be used daily for at least two weeks daily prior to treatment

- Professional strength skincare products with ingredients such as retinols, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), tretinoin or any type of vitamin A derivatives should be be avoided for 2 weeks prior to any Plasma Lift treatment

- A medical history should also be taken to make sure that there are no reasons why you shouldn't carry out treatment. Ask the client to sign a consent form which means that they have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with the procedure

- Photographs must also be taken by the practitioner for a "before and after" comparison at a later date

Possible post treatment reactions

- Following any plasma treatment, most people experience a mild burning sensation similar to sunburn. This will disappear after a couple to 24 hours

- Depending upon your skin sensitivity tolerance this discomfort may last a little longer. If the area feels particularly uncomfortable, anti-inflammatory medication can be taken. Please consult a pharmacist prior to taking any over the counter medication

- As a natural healing response, it is usual for the treated area to become very swollen, especially around the more delicate areas such as the eyes. This can last from 3 to 8 days in most cases

- There will be  alight crusting on the skin after treatment and a deeper crust in the areas dotted. These must not be picked as this can disrupt the healing process. The crusting simply flakes off after a few days but in some cases can take over 1 week

- DO NOT pick at this rusting as it can lead to infection or scarring. Likewise, it is important to keep the treated area clean

- The area should be wiped down with alcohol wipes at night and then a hyaluronic acid or serum applied for moisture and to decrease down time. This should be repeated a minimum of two times a day

- If you wish to wear makeup if should be ONLY recommended products for the first 3 days and a mineral based make up until fully healed

- You may find the application of ice packs or hydrating mask can soothe and help reduce swelling 

- In extreme cases, the swelling can be last several days and may initially interfere with vision

- Initially after treatment and for a day or so afterwards, there may be occasional weeing, This is simply plasma and is a natural healing response

- This simply flakes off after a few days but in some cases can take over 1 week

For 12 hours after treatment

- No make-up

- For 48 hours after treatment 

- No sauna

- No sunbeds

- No sun exposure

- No Botox, collagen injections of dermal fillers

For 1 week after treatment

- No swimming

- Do not use anti-ageing creams

- Do not use AHA's, Glycolic or Retinol

- Do not use exfoliating products
