Plasma Therapy at SkinSpirit

Looking to tackle a specific skin condition such as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, or just want an instant skin boost? Then our advanced Plasma Pen treatment can help make your skin look younger, brighter and tighter. 

At SkinSpirit we work with the Plasma Elite II Plasma Pen to provide our clients with the very best anti-ageing outcomes. This non-invasive, virtually pain free anti-ageing treatment uses the Plasma Pen to lift and tighten skin with great accuracy and impressive results. Suitable for use around the delicate eye area due to its precision, or for other targeted or larger areas. Skin is instantly lifted, firmed and tightened with impressive rejuvenating results.

 

Benefits:

  • Instant anti-ageing results
  • Incredibly accurate for targeted treatments
  • Tightens, lifts, resurfaces and regenerates the ski

Treatment Details

Plasma Pen therapy works by using heat, which is applied subdermally, to shrink and shorten collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in an instant tightening of the skin. Also known as fibroblasting or fibroblast therapy, this treatment is an incredible way to reverse the signs of ageing and we’ve seen some incredible results here at SkinSpirit!

Our Plasma Elite II Pen works by targeting skin cells with the energy source (the plasma arc or plasma flashes), damaging those specific cells and thereby encouraging new cells growth and regeneration of the skin. Where the arc touches the body, the skin will shrink around that point – tightening and smoothing wrinkles, sagging skin or scarring.

This safe, quick and non-surgical treatment is fast becoming a popular alternative to other anti-ageing treatments such as Botox. Results last around 3 - 5 years, so it’s well worth considering fibroblast therapy at SkinSpirit if you want to achieve a more youthful complexion.

Results Driven Treatments at SkinSpirit

As a results driven skincare clinic, we ensure our treatment options deliver the outcomes you’re hoping for. As one of our favourite anti-aging treatments at SkinSpirit, the Plasma Pen guarantees results that last for around 3 - 5 years. Far superior to many other anti-ageing treatments. 

At SkinSpirit, we believe in a holistic approach to anti-ageing skincare and your therapist will recommend any other treatments, supplements or home care products to support your aesthetic and wellbeing goals. 

As one of the leading aesthetic clinics in the UK, you can be sure that your treatment programme will include the latest in anti-ageing technology and the very best skincare brands.

What our customers are saying?

Can Plasma Pen be used to treat all skin types?

A. No, Plasma Pen isn’t suitable for all skin types. Your therapist will be able to confirm if your skin is suitable for treatment and if it’s not, they will recommend an alternative anti-ageing treatment programme.

A Plasma Pen treatment can vary in time depending on the size of the area being treated. As an example, an upper eye treatment to reduce sagging eyelids would take around 40-minutes. 

The number of treatments required also varies depending on the condition of the skin and the area being treated. We usually see impressive results are 1 - 2 treatments. If you require multiple treatments they would need to be spaced at least 8 weeks apart. 

Contraindications

Plasma Pen treatment is not suitable for all. Please read the list of contraindications below to see if this anti-ageing treatment is right for you…

  • Patients with a known history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring
  • The use of Isotretinoin
  • Systemic illnesses
  • Any form of infection on or near the treatment area
  • Allergies to any of the topical preparation products such as a numbing creams

Plasma Pen is not suitable if you are pregnant and breastfeeding.

This groundbreaking treatment works by converting electrical energy into electrostatic energy, which is in turn transmitted to the pen’s probe by impulse. Plasma comprises ionised gases that are charged with equal amounts of negative and positive charged ions, as well as negative charged electrons. Plasma is formed through these ionisations of positive and negative gases when it hits the atmosphere. At the right distance from the skin, the energy ionises the oxygen, combines with the nitrogen in the air, and creates a small electrical Plasma arc or flash.

When the Plasma arc or plasma flash hits the skin, it vaporises any liquid in the skin at the point of contact. The surrounding skin then contracts into the area and instantly tightens. This clever shrinking and lifting effect is called ‘sublimation’. Even though the skin layers are vaporised by the Plasma, they do not burn off, they just flake off as part of the post-treatment healing process.

Held approx 1 mm from the skin, the Plasma Elite II uses state of the art technology to deliver a stable plasma arc from the pen to the skin. This safe, non-invasive treatment cuts out if the pen itself touches the skin, eliminating any risk for both clients and therapists. 

The Plasma Elite II Pen uses one of the finest probes on the market (0.44 size tip) enabling incredible accuracy. It is a cordless and wirelessly charged device adding to its flexibility. The Plasma Elite II Pen also includes a 360 light ensuring the therapist has the best view during your entire treatment.

The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved and CE approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy. We also love that the Plasma Elite II Pen is manufactured here in Great Britain. 

 

Pre & Post Treatment Care

During your treatment consultation your therapist will provide bespoke pre- and post-treatment guidance, depending on the area being treated with the Plasma Pen. We have outlined below some of the guidance you may be given:

 

Pre-Treatment Care

Avoid any natural or fake tanning for 4 weeks prior to your Plasma Pen treatment

Use SPF50 on the area to be treated for 4 weeks prior to treatment

Avoid any other skincare treatments on the same area for 4 weeks prior to treatment

Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol prior to your treatment 

 

Post-Treatment Care (while the skin shows scabs)

Tiny scabs will appear after treatment, DO NOT pick at the scabs - this can delay the healing process and cause scarring

Cleanse your skin morning and night using a gentle cleanser to remove excess oil and pat dry with a clean cloth or towel

DO NOT exfoliate the treated area

Use recommended post-treatment products such as serums and moisturisers to keep the area well hydrated - these will not include any harmful perfumes or harsh chemicals

If you have had a treatment around the eye area, avoid wearing contact lenses for 3 days post-treatment

 

Post-Treatment Care (once the scabs have naturally fallen off)

Continue to apply an SPF50 for at least 3 months following your Plasma Pen treatment

Avoid excessive heat, such as saunas, and sun or sunbed exposure for 3 months following treatment. 

Avoid all other surgical or invasive treatments to the area for at least 3 months post-treatment
