Plasma skin regeneration, commonly known as Plasmage, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and various dermatological treatments. Plasmage utilises a laser device that generates plasma (an ionised gas), to treat specific skin concerns. The plasma is created by passing energy through nitrogen gas, resulting in a controlled thermal effect that can target and treat different skin issues.
During one of our Plasmage procedures, the device is used to deliver the plasma energy to the skin’s surface, creating tiny controlled injuries. This process stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, leading to collagen production and skin tightening. Plasmage can be used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, acne scars, and certain pigmentation issues.
One of the significant advantages of Plasmage is its precision. The device allows the practitioner to target specific areas accurately, making it suitable for delicate areas like the eyelids. The treatment is often performed under local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort.
Most treatments last around 10 – 15 minutes and is reported to have minimal to no pain – patients have said it feels like a small elastic band hitting the skin.
Plasmage is considered a minimally invasive procedure, and downtime is typically minimal. Patients may experience redness, swelling, and crusting at the treatment site, which usually resolves within a few days to a week. Results are gradual and continue to improve over several weeks to months as collagen production increases and the skin tightens.
This will depend on the severity of your skin concern, however, in most cases one treatment is enough, with some patients requiring two or more treatments.
This tiny superficial thermal trauma causes the skin in its vicinity to tighten and lift — giving results that are immediately noticeable after just one treatment. Over the next 3 months, the elasticity of the skin and the skin tightening effects will continue to progress as the healing of the dermis promotes the production of new collagen and elastin.
