Rapidly growing in popularity around the country, plasma treatments are being hailed for their fast and effective results when it comes to skin tightening. Plasma pen is fast becoming the go-to non-surgical option for dramatic wrinkle reduction particularly around the eyes and mouth, and a simple scroll through your Instagram feed should be all it takes to discover within minutes the increasing quantity of the treatment’s signature rows of black dots. It can even be used to resurface scars, both new and old, or deliver non-surgical alternatives to procedures like the lip flip.
We spoke to Dr Vihang Sharma from Skin Club on what makes their plasma pen resurfacing treatment so popular.
How does plasma skin resurfacing work?
Plasma Skin Resurfacing is a non-laser treatment that uses a device to deliver energy in the form of plasma to rejuvenate skin. Plasma skin technology uses energy delivered from plasma rather than light or radio frequencies, in comparison to other skin regeneration modalities. Plasma skin regeneration technology works by utilising the voltage in the air between its metal tip and the skin, to form a plasma charge. An electrical arc is formed and immediately shrinks the targeted skin. The tissue retraction and tightening gives results that are incomparable to invasive surgery by physically reducing the volume of skin in the surrounding area.
Why did you decide to begin offering the service at Skin Club?
We decided to offer this treatment mainly to ensure we are giving the best results for our patients! Other treatments such as Fraxel work only as a resurfacing treatment but have a minimal effect on wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections work as more of a preventative and do not remove wrinkles, over the counter skin creams are lacking evidence and glorify snake oil. Plasma Skin Rejuvenation offers permanent reverse aging, without the need for costly, pain endorsed surgery.
What type of patient is the ideal candidate and what are the treatment areas?
This treatment would ideally suit a male or female in their early 30s upwards. The extremely accurate device is known for its success with procedures including non-surgical eyelift, scar lifting treatments, wrinkle reduction, acne scarring and to reverse signs of sun damage.
What kind of feedback have you received from patients?
Feedback from clients so far has been extremely positive, one patient rating the treatment 10/10. Clients who have had previous surgical age-reversing treatments have said they would never go back to having surgical procedures after this experience. Patients have described the treatment as relatively pain free, described having almost instant amazing results and have enjoyed having treatment in a comfortable space with qualified doctors.
Why might patients opt for plasma as opposed to other energy-based device skin rejuvenation options?
Plasma treatment guarantees great results, the treatment has tightening and lifting effects and is long-lasting – up to 3 years. Plasma is the future of skin rejuvenation, in the right hands, plasma will change the way we approach skin treatments and plasma energy devices.
