With our state of the art Plasma Pen under our highly trained practitioners, we force the skin tissue to contract virtually immediately by thermally disrupting the skin as well as fibroblasts. This micro-trauma stimulates new collagen (neocollagenesis) and helps release and activate essential proteins and growth factors like cytokines and fibroblasts, which makes more collagen than before it was disrupted. Eventually, excess skin dries off to form tiny crusts that fall off like dandruff in just a few days. New collagen is formed over a period of up to 6 months.
Our Plasma pen is one of the first in the World to utilise a Low frequency delivery of the plasma arc. This enables the treatment imprint to be wider, and shallower than traditional thermal only devices. The benefits of which are a greater tightening effect allowing for better results, a quicker healing process and less down time to the client. The plasma pen can be used on most skin types, however, your practitioner will assess your skin and offer a test patch prior to treatment.
At Beauty & Shine Clinic in Nine Elms London, we mainly use this Plasma Pen Fibroblast treatment to remedy skin blemishes in several areas and for treating a variety of conditions as stipulated below;
An immediate tightening will be seen with the plasma pen and dermal fillers. Once healing has taken place you will see an improvement in skin condition and tone. Collagen production and skin tightening gets progressively better over 10-14 weeks and continues to improve up to a year later.
One of the major advantages of fibroblast is that it offers a much less invasive/expensive alternative to surgery as well as the time it takes to carry out. This does not mean there is no downtime, but by comparision it is minimal. You can experience significant swelling in the area treated, particularly in the eye area this diminishes over a 2-5 day period. The tiny plasma flash causes ‘crusts’ to form on the skin giving the distinctive dotting effect. These on average are gone between 5-7 days. They may also be covered over to reduce their visibility. These are cosmetic issues only, technically there is no real downtime if these visual effects are of no concern to you.
The fact is, the treatment works. However, success of a treatment to one client maybe failure to another. Skin tightening appears immediately, whereas collagen induction occurs over a period of time. For some clients more than 1 treatment may be required to achieve their desired results.
Once collagen is formed, the natural ageing process of breaking down the collagen will then take place. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors can contribute to the collagen breakdown such as UV exposure and smoking. However, depending on the amount of sagging skin, sometimes it may require more than a single session.
