What is plasma treatment and in which areas can it be used?
Plasma treatment is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that removes excess, sagging or damaged skin and smoothes wrinkles around the lips and eyes without surgery. No need to think about knives or strenuous plastic surgery when you use it.
It is very spectacular in the lower and upper eyelid area, which is why it is one of the most popular treatment zones. The loose skin on the upper eyelids is aesthetically distressing, but can also be a distraction in our daily lives. Excess skin can cause visual difficulties, so by reducing the amount of skin, treatment can help us to be our old selves again and carry out our daily activities with clarity of vision.
Wrinkling of the lower eyelids is also caused by excess skin, so the under-eye area can also be rejuvenated with good results with this method.
The procedure also works well as an alternative to wrinkle fillers to remove wrinkles around the lips, smoker's lines. It is also good for treating crow's feet, acne scars, cholesterol deposits around the eyes, minimising the appearance of varicose veins, minimising the appearance of varicose veins, removing warts such as swimming pool warts, viral warts, as well as treating keratosis, melasma, freckles, lentigines, fibroids and stretch marks.
Plasma treatment is carried out using plasma, the fourth stage of plasma. This is achieved by ionising gaseous particles of air through the treatment device. When the treatment head is brought close to the skin surface, an electric arc is created which causes sublimation of the upper layers of the skin at a specific point without damaging the deeper layers or surrounding tissues.
The treatment stimulates the formation of fibroblasts in the skin, increasing the production of collagen and elastin and triggering further natural skin regeneration processes, resulting in fresh and new surface skin tissue. After the treatment, the skin becomes visibly firmer and more elastic. Ultimately, the amount of skin - excess or damaged skin - in the area is reduced
How does the treatment work?
The procedure is preceded by a medical consultation with the patient. At this time, we will clarify the realistic expected result, what needs to be done after the plasma treatment and the time of the necessary check-ups.
The area to be treated is anaesthetised locally with a cream or injection and disinfected after about half an hour. The treatment is then carried out precisely, point by point, with virtually no pain.
The handpiece removes excess tissue in tiny points, causing micro-injuries, quickly and effectively, without blood or cuts.
Up to one treatment can be enough to see a visible change, but the procedure can be repeated in the case of heavily wrinkled, drooping eyelids or more stubborn skin problems. This requires 1-2 months between treatments.
It is worth repeating the treatment years later to guarantee a long-lasting effect.
What to do after plasma treatment?
After the treatment, small brownish lumps will form on the treated area, which will peel off without scarring. It takes about 5 days for the scabs to heal and peel off. Beyond this time, swelling can be expected in the treated area, which will subside in about a few days, after which it will gradually disappear on its own.
Do not touch the treatment area in any way, use the cream and disinfectant you received at the clinic for the next 5 days. Do not scratch the scab micro-wounds to avoid infection and scarring.
Sunbathing and sunbathing are contraindicated for at least 6 weeks and, of course, regular daily sun protection is essential for at least 90 days in the treated area. We recommend a high factor 50 UVA and UVB sunscreen.
All information is given to our patients in a precise and personalised way during the pre-treatment consultation.
How long does the result of plasma treatment last?
The results of plasma treatment can last up to years, until the skin starts to sag again or until the previous problem reappears. As this is an individual factor, we can give general trends and time intervals, and the effectiveness is entirely individual.
When is the treatment not recommended?
Jett Plasma Lift treatment is not recommended if the patient has a pacemaker or other type of metal implant, is pregnant or breastfeeding, or has epilepsy or cancer. If you have a heart condition or are taking anticoagulants, you should consult your GP or specialist before the procedure.
