What is Plasma Microneedling?
A powerful treatment for diminishing scars, aging lines and stretch marks, plasma microneedling is one of the most effective innovations in aesthetic medicine today.
The procedure involves the employment of a precisely controlled microneedling pen that creates a plasma beam which heats tiny holes in the skin to treat wrinkles, scars, and other cosmetic blemishes.
How does Plasma Microneedling Work?
Plasma microneedling works by transferring heat deep into the epidermis, awakening fibroblast cells to produce new collagen cells. The device forms a plasma charge by utilizing the voltage in the air between the tip of the device and the natural gasses emitted from our skin. A small electrical arc (plasma) is contrived and instantly shrinks the targeted cosmetic blemishes on the skin. The result is retraction and tightening of the skin, giving patients more youthful looking skin.
Collagen, the substance that gives skin its elasticity and youthful appearance, is naturally produced by our bodies until around age 30, after which production becomes diminished. As a result of this loss in collagen production, skin begins to sag, weaken and thin. Microneedling stimulates collagen production by opening tiny channels in your skin, causing controlled inflammation initiation. The result is that old and damaged collagen is removed by sublimation and new collagen production will take its place.
Benefits of Plasma Microneedling – No Cutting!
The ideal technology for skin lifting and skin clearing, plasma microneedling minimizes damage to the skin’s surface by working deep within the epidermis (outer skin), thereby bypassing the damage and downtime caused by more abrasive surgical procedures.
One of the greatest benefits of plasma microneedling is its ability to treat a wide range of aesthetic issues from:
- Stretch marks
- Age spots
- Skin tightening
- Acne scars and more
What Areas Can Be Treated with Microneedling?
Another virtue of the treatment is its broad range of applicability, treating critical marks almost anywhere on the skin: eyelids, lips, forehead, cheeks, and other highly sensitive areas. Almost anywhere the controlled plasma rays are applied, the result is improved skin texture and increased blood flow to the skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients require a series of three to four treatments spaced one month apart.
How Soon Will I See Results?
The positive effects of the treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment and will continue to improve over the following weeks and should last for many years. The effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery.
