What is it / how does it work
Plasma IQ is an exciting new technology, a new medical procedure involving the application of plasma to sublimate skin without transferring heat to the surrounding tissue. Sublimation is the process of turning a substance from a solid straight into a gas. There is no electric current flowing.
What can it treat
Plasma IQ provides a comfortable non-surgical option for a wide range of conditions:
Non-surgical face lift
Non-surgical Blepharoplasty (Eye lift/Eye lid remodelling)
Reduce fine lines, wrinkles & scars
Remove warts, moles, skin tags and milia
How is it performed
During the procedure, the plasma causes some heating of the skin and this may cause some pain or a burning or tingling sensation. Local anesthetic cream will be applied prior to treatment to minimise discomfort.
Following treatment, the area may be tender or there may be a residual burning or tingling sensation that may last a few hours. Tiny dark brown or black spots may appear where individual shots have been fired or a larger burn-like appearance may
be seen where plasma has been sprayed. The tiny spots will flake off over a few days (up to 2weeks) and a burn will heal over a similar time period. Swelling is common and can be quite pronounced around the eyes, often the worse the following morning and lasting for several days. At its
worst, swelling can cause some interference with vision. During the healing period a scab may appear over the treatment area or it may
become a little sloughy. It is important to allow any spots or scabs to a fall off
naturally otherwise scarring or infection may occur. It is important to keep the
treated area clean, dry and protected using a broad spectrum sunscreen. Avoid exposing the area to extremes of heat or cold until it has fully healed. Mineral makeup may be applied.
When can I see results
The results of Plasma IQ start to show immediately. Just like surgery - the results are permanent. Sometimes more than one treatment is required, and a non-surgical blepharoplasty often needs 3 treatments at 6 weekly intervals to obtain surgical results. Results following Plasma IQ treatment often last years or may be permanent.
