With results that rival cosmetic surgery, PLASMA BLAST skin regeneration can fix everything from problem pigmentation to droopy eyelids. Here’s the lowdown on this revolutionary new skin treatment…
What is plasma skin regeneration?
It might sound like something from a sci-fi movie, but plasma skin regeneration is actually an awesome reality. Plasma is basically an electrically charged gas that shocks the skin and causes it to contract, having an instant tightening effect. At Helen Taylor we use PLASMA BLAST, a highly effective form of plasma skin regeneration that can be used to treat everything from fine lines and scarring, to skin tags and smoker’s lines. PLASMA BLAST really comes into its own when it comes to treating crow’s-feet and droopy eyelids, delivering similar results to surgical eye-lifts (or blepharoplasty), without the need for a scalpel.
How does plasma skin regeneration work?
A specialised device is used to deliver an ionised gas (the plasma), which charges the air just above the skin. This process generates a tiny lightning bolt that damages existing skin cells and causes them to contract. And that’s when the magic happens – the skin’s natural healing processes go into overdrive, encouraging fresh new cells to be produced. These include collagen and elastin, which help to maintain the skin’s elasticity and minimise the appearance of wrinkles. Depending on the intensity of the PLASMA BLAST treatment, the therapy can be used to treat superficial issues such as hyper-pigmentation and fine lines, as well as more extensive ones such as deep wrinkles and sagging skin.
Who is plasma skin regeneration good for?
PLASMA BLAST is suitable for all ages and most skin tones, and for anyone who wants to achieve a smoother, more youthful complexion. It can treat a variety of skin imperfections, including stretch marks, scarring, brown spots, and unwanted tattoos. It’s particularly effective for treating fine lines around the mouth (so-called smoker’s lines), as well as rejuvenating the whole eye area (non-surgical blepharoplasty).
What does plasma blast involve?
PLASMA BLAST can be performed in under an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. To begin with, local anaesthetic cream is applied to numb the skin. The plasma gun is then held close to the skin, and lots of little zaps delivered all over the treatment area. You’re likely to feel some heat and possibly tiny amount of discomfort, but not for long (a typical eye-treatment lasts around 20-25 minutes, for example). After the treatment, your skin may feel a little sensitive (think mild sunburn), and there’ll probably be a little swelling for the first couple of days. You’ll also develop small dry spots that will crust over and flake off within a week. These can be covered with make-up.
What results can I expect?
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will appear tighter and smoother. This will continue to improve as the skin cells regenerate in the following weeks. Depending on your age and the area being treated, you’ll need between one and three sessions, performed around six weeks apart.
Boost the benefits
PLASMA BLAST is an incredibly effective treatment for rejuvenating the eyes, a procedure known as non-surgical eye-lift or blepharoplasty. A single session will instantly tighten saggy eyelids and reduce the appearance of crow’s-feet, taking years off your whole face. The results are so impressive, more and more people are opting for this procedure in place of traditional eye-lift surgery.
