What is Plasmedic Fibroblasting?
Signature Skin Therapies are your go-to specialists for Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening treatments in Adelaide's North East. Plasma Fibroblast is a non-surgical treatment option for wrinkle reduction, skin tightening and resurfacing – think cosmetic surgery, without the surgery! A plasma pen is a hand-held device that uses energy and heat to tighten, tone and firm the skin.
Plasma Fibroblast removes or reduces lines, wrinkles, scarring, hyperpigmentation and sagging skin on the face, neck and body – tummy, arms, thighs, hands… the options are endless!
With Plasma Fibroblast you now have the option to treat a number of issues that traditionally would have needed surgery, like:
Eye lid lift (non surgical Blepharoplasty)
Tighten and lift neck and jawline
Dramatically reduce lines and wrinkles
Remove under-eye bags
Non-surgical Tummy Tuck
The Plasmedic device creates a voltage difference between the device probe and the skin. The energy produced results in a small millimetre sized carbon spot where the excess skin has been evaporated. Using our reduction grid method, the formation of new Collagen and Elastin causes the skin to become tighter and firmer. Wrinkles are visibly smoothed and reduced. Areas that can be treated include; Upper and Lower Eyelids, Forehead, Frown lines, Crows Feet, Nasolabial Folds, Marionette Lines, Top Lip (Smoker’s lines), Chin, Jowls, Cheeks, Neck, Knees, Abdomen and more. The advantage to this treatment is that there is significantly less down time than Surgery or Fractional laser treatments.
At Signature Skin Therapies, we offer plasmedic skin tightening treatments servicing Adelaide's North and North Eastern suburbs from a private and professional space. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your skin goals and creating a treatment plan to achieve the glowing, youthful skin that you desire! Book your FREE consultation today!
Do I need a consultation?
Yes. I always recommend a consultation to rule out any contraindications. The treatment can be performed on the same day, time permitting, or you can choose to visit for a free consultation and return for the treatment another day. If your skin is not in the right condition to recieve a plasma treatment, you will be recommended appropriate home-care products to use as well as one to two facials to get your skin in good enough condition that you will achieve maximum results from the treatment. This is not the case for everyone, however if you are a skincare novice with a very basic routine, it is unrealistic to expect that you can go straight into a highly advanced skin treatment without prepping your skin first. Plasma treatments are not like having a facial and should not be taken lightly.
What are the aftercare requirements?
At your consultation you will be provided with a copy of the pre-and post treatment advice as well as being read through all of the treatment precautions and considerations. On the day of your appointment you will be provided with some take-home aftercare which is included in the cost of your treatment.
Does the treatment hurt?
Pain is very subjective due to everyone having a different tolerance level, so I will never say outright that any treatment isn't painful, however overall our clients tell us the treatment is not that painful. Usually the eye & neck areas are the 'spiciest' and you are welcome to come armed with some topical numbing that I can apply. *I do not supply numbing due to legal restraints and to meet my insurance obligations. I am aware that many salons ignore this restriction, however I choose to do the right thing for your safety and mine.
How long will it take to see results?
Results can usually be seen immediately. Result are more noticable once the scabs have fallen off after day 7 and continue to improve for 2-3 months. Results are expected to last 2-5 years depending on the client, genetics, skincare routine and lifestyle.
How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is often enough however severity of eyelids or wrinkles and client’s expectations are all taken into account. Some clients may need a 2nd or 3rd treatment. We find the eyelid area usually needs more then one treatment where as wrinkles often only need one treatment. We recommend any extra treatments to be done 2-3 months apart.
How long do results last?
Typically around 2-5 years. Clients results vary depending on diet, lifestyle and the way your skin naturally ages. The treatment can be repeated anytime.
Are there any side effects?
Plasmedic treatments are extremely safe. We always check all contraindications to see if there is any reason you would have an undesired result. Very rarely reactions to the topical numbing cream, wound healing problems, skin infections, scarring, slight swelling, redness, tingling can occur. Rest assured this is extremely rare and as long as you let us know of any skin problems or health issues and follow our aftercare program you should be fine.
Immediately after the procedure, the treated area will be quite red and mildly swollen. This can last from 1-3 days. The small carbon dots will dry to become small crusts. These crusts must not be picked or scratched off as this will cause scarring.
