Plasma IQ

Many of us experience skin laxity as we age and none is more telling of the ageing process than that of loose skin above and below the eyes. When some turn to surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty to treat and correct eye bags, many prefer a non-surgical solution. Fortunately, there is now a device-led procedure which is becoming extremely popular and is readily accessible for the treatment of skin ageing, as well as minor skin conditions and this is called Plasma Sublimation.

At KL Cosmetic Clinics Doncaster, we offer Plasma IQ for the treatment of upper and lower eye bags as well as a range of skin conditions such as:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and décolletage
  • Skin imperfections and lesions such as skin tags, warts and moles
  • Thread veins (spider veins)
  • Acne and acne scars
  • General scarring
  • Uneven skin tone and texture

Indications (what is it for)?

How does Plasma IQ Work?

Plasma is a recent innovation in the world of aesthetic medicine and is the fourth state of matter. Plasma IQ works by ionising the gas particles in the air in the space between the device tip and the skin. This causes controlled skin damage, creating a tightening and retraction of the skin tissues. This is down to the triggered healing response which is activated, following the treatment and subsequent increased collagen formation in the treated areas. Plasma IQ is a hand-held device and can only be used by a medically trained professional, such as a doctor, dentist or nurse.

Plasma IQ is a very precise treatment and no heat is transferred to the surrounding area for treatment. It creates tiny 1mm spots and this means it can be applied to more sensitive areas such as the eyelids, which are not always suitable for other, non-invasive treatments such as lasers or radiofrequency.

Plasma IQ is a very low risk procedure, however there are some possible side-effects and some downtime. Therefore, it is very important that you undergo treatment with a fully qualified professional such as KL’s own Kirsty Louise Whitworth, who is fully qualified and trained in Plasma IQ.

Frequently asked questions

How do I know I am suitable for treatment?

Anyone who is seeking to tighten and tone their skin, is suffering with minor skin conditions as mentioned or who is looking to improve under and upper eye bags could be suitable for Plasma IQ. However, it is important to attend a no-obligation consultation prior to any treatment so that your medical history can be discussed and a treatment plan can be organised for you. Those with darker skins are not suitable for Plasma IQ, due to a risk of hypopigmentation following treatment if the treatment scabs are disturbed or scratched. Those who are pregnant or breast feeding are also not suitable.

What happens during treatment?

During the treatment, the device is held over the area of concern and slowly passed over the skin, creating small dots of superficial skin damage. Depending on the area to be treated, this can take anything from 10 to 20 minutes. Following treatment your skin will be treated with a repairing cream and you will be able to go home.

Is it painful?

Plasma IQ can be uncomfortable, so at KL Cosmetic Clinics we apply a topical anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. You may also choose to take some Paracetamol up to an hour prior to the treatment.

How many sessions will I need?

Typically, more than one treatment session is recommended for optimum results, depending on the area being treated. If more than one session is required there will be 6 weekly intervals between each treatment. Often up to three treatment sessions are needed to replicate the effect of a surgical procedure.

Is there downtime?

Following treatment with Plasma IQ, small brown scabs will appear on the skin and last about a week. It is very important not to scratch or pick these scabs and your practitioner will advise on suitable creams to use to ease any discomfort or itching.

How long does the treatment last?

The results of Plasma IQ can last just as long as a more invasive surgical procedure, such as blepharoplasty. However, it will not prevent the natural ageing process. If you take care of your skin, refrain from smoking, avoid too much alcohol and maintain a healthy diet, the effects of Plasma IQ can last considerably longer than if you do not follow a healthy skin regime.
