Introduction to Plasma Skin Tightening
Plasma Skin Tightening is a beauty enhancement procedure
performed by locally licensed, skillfully trained, Jennifer Richardson, who uses a plasma pen device to shrink the skin using a sterile, disposable probe.
Fibroblasts are the collagen producing cells in the skin. Fibroblast treatment is performed with a device called a plasma pen, which is used to produce plasma waves. The waves are directed as tiny light spots along the wrinkle lines. The tip of the pen never touches the skin (and the needle like attachment is a sterile, disposable, one time use).
The pen is held above the skin and a tiny plasma arc connects the tip of the device to the surface of the dermis. Using plasma waves, the old collagen is removed by Sublimation (Evaporation), and fibroblasts are stimulated to produce new collagen. The targeted skin contracts and is essentially eliminated without any cutting, which results in the tightening and shrinking of the targeted skin.
This advanced procedure helps to revive natural levels of the Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Fibronectin needed for fresh youthful skin. A series of tiny brown spots are strategically placed to attain the desired result. The skin around the dot tightens instantly, pulling the cells closer together.
No over tightening will occur. The evaporated old collagen is seen as tiny brown scabs on the treated area. The tiny “microdot”, brown scab or protective crust, or carbon crust on the surface will fall off on their own in approx. 3-7 days.
It is very Safe, low-risk, and highly effective. As with most cosmetic treatments, a consultation with an experienced, trained practitioner prior to service, as well as a strict aftercare routine, is required to promote proper healing and to help you achieve the maximum results.
