Plasma Lift Skin Tightening
The Answer You’ve Been Looking For
PlasmaLift skin tightening is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to reduce the volume of excess skin. Low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable than surgery. PlasmaLift skin tightening treatment is known for it's success with Non-Surgical Eye Lifts, Tummy Tightening, Neck Tightening and so much more.
The term “Soft Surgery” is used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery, with no scalpel, stitches or bandages and minimal downtime. A minimally invasive procedure with much lower risk and at a more affordable price than actual surgery.
HOW DOES PLASMA LIFT TREATMENT WORK?

During the procedure, tiny plasma flash also known as an electrical arc is being discharged from the tip of the PlasmaLift handpiece. The tool itself never touches the skin however plasma flash creates a tiny dot upon contact. There is no cut or blood. This innovative technology uses sublimation process, turning solid directly to gas to tighten skin tissue. Targeted tissue sublimate, causing no damage to surrounding areas or deeper skin layers. Further points are applied to create a symmetrical grid over the treatment area. Effects are noticeable right away. Full results become visible after 6- 8 weeks. The patient can resume regular activities right away with minimal discomfort.
Plasma Fibroblast is a relatively new innovation in the beauty industry in North America but has been used for a number of years in Europe. The extremely accurate handheld device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the natural gasses emitted from our skin, to form a plasma charge. A small electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissues retract and tighten giving you more youthful looking skin.
WHAT IS IT USED TO TREAT?
Depending on your age, skin type, the laxity of your skin in its current condition; you will need to repeat your treatments until desired results are achieved.
Most popular Plasmalift Treatments include
Eyelid Lift: This involves tightening up of the loose skin around the eyelid area. We can also treat the lower "bag" areas of the eyes.
Facial Treatments: Wrinkle removal and facial re-contouring These treatments to avoid excessive swelling may be broken into 2 treatments so you may need to come in 2 times if your technician is doing a full face: as it is optional to divide larger treatment areas. ***smaller wrinkles may be greatly improved in only a few treatments ***
Neck Treatments: Plasmalift is ideal for anyone with excess neck skin as this skin is often loose and just kind of hanging around. Please note it may take 3-4 treatments to achieve large improvement: but clients will see a marked improvement with each trea
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Plasma Lift is more than a simple tightening treatment (skin volume is actually reduced), the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of Plasma Lift are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further aging, but the positive results should last years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after 6 weeks. For most areas, additional treatments may be required after 4- 6 weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin's laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 6 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get a better result. Appointments must be spaced out by 4-6 weeks.
WHAT TO EXPECT-SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS
Plasma Lift has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature when done by a fully certified technician. Still, the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment.
There will be small carbon crusts (little polka dots) in the treated area that will last 7-10 days before naturally lifting, revealing new pink skin beneath. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper or lower eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyper-pigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your technician.

Plasmalift Treatment is not advised for those with very dark skin. This is because there is a higher risk of hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) or hypo-pigmentation (light spots) following treatment. Patch test may be required.
DAY OF TREATMENT
On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area. You may take an antihistamine 60 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.
A numbing agent is applied and left to take effect for up to 45 minutes. When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the fibroblast tip, spaced closely together. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating. Treatment times vary, depending on the size of the area.
Immediately after treatment, the area may be red and mildly swollen with small carbon crusts (spots). You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days. The carbon crusts will lift within 5 -12 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results gradually improve over the course of the following 6- 8 weeks.
Following treatment, you will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results.
