Frequently Asked Questions
What is Plasma Lift?
Plasma Lift is a 100% non-invasive and non-surgical procedure and is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma which is considered the 4th state of the matter to reduce the volume of excess skin by generating collagen and elastin fibres that become weaker as a person ages.
How does Plasma fibroblast treatment work and what is the principle behind the Plasma Lift?
The Plasma Pen is a handheld device that is held a millimetre from the surface of the skin but near enough to create a small stream of energy as the plasma reacts to your body’s electrical charge. The principle is to ionizes gases in the air and to create stream of energy called “plasma arc” in the epidermal and dermal areas of the skin
Once ‘plasma arc’, makes contact with your skin, a small scab is formed and the area around this scab is instantly tightened. These scabs will all fall off to reveal a new skin which is tight by boosting collagen production by the body which your skin’s production of collagen in the affected area, meaning that your skin will continue to tighten months after you leave the clinic!
What device is used?
A small hand held device called Plasma pen is used by highly trained plasma fibroblast specialists to provide a non-invasive treatment for a variety of skin concerns to generate new skin.
This extremely accurate device works by producing a micro-millimetre pulse of “plasmatic lightning” from the probe to the skin which evaporates and causes the area to contract, without any unwanted heat transmission to surrounding skin.
What are the benefits?
It is a proven alternative to surgery which improves sun damaged skin, bringing fresher, firmer, more youthful looking skin, improving fine lines and sun damage. It’s the only treatment that has a proven record of generating new skin. Very specific areas of the epidermis are treated without affecting the surrounding skin or risk of damaging deeper layers of skin.
Are the results long lasting?
Very often, only one treatment is required to see the change and these effects of the treatment are permanent. After few years, many people come for a top up after 3 or 4 years as the skin undergo continuous changes as people age.
What is the healing period?
Healing period is short and the scabs that form will start falling away after about three days, and 1 week all the scabs should normally come off .
What are the risks?
It has low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable than surgery. Treatments can result in some immediate reactions including redness, minor bleeding and swelling. In upper eyelid area, swelling and redness may appear which will gradually disappear. Do not pick any scabs which may follow the aesthetic treatment. This occurs within 10 days from the aesthetic treatment. This alone will suffice as after-care. All other aftercare treatments are not strictly required as the body will naturally takes care of the healing process.

What are the common side effects of Plasma FibroBlast Treatment
- Small burns
- Major swelling
- Reddening of the skin
- Heat in area of Plasma FibroBlast
- Pain: Lasts up-to 24 hours after the treatment, but sometimes slightly longer.
- Swelling : Can last up to five days. If any of these symptoms persist for more than six days, or if any other side effects develop, report them to your practitioner and consult your doctor.
- Redness: Long term redness and slight tenderness may continue for a few weeks following the treatment.
- There is small risk of scarring, hypo-pigmentation or hyper-pigmentation which can be minimised but can never be completely avoided, however these risks are greatly increased if the aftercare instructions are not strictly adhered to.
- Number of sessions: The number of sessions required to achieve the desired result will be determined by the type of treatment you request and the size of the area being treated. The minimum interval between treatments on the same area is 6 weeks. This minimum time period may need to be extended, depending on your skin type and your individual reaction to the treatment.
- Hyper pigmentation: The likelihood of this side effect is very low and can be minimised but never completely avoided. Hypo-pigmentation is a normal reaction in skin renewal and normally disappears after a few months. These risks are minimised by following the after-care recommendations and avoiding sun exposure and applying total sun block for the prescribed period. In certain circumstances red or pink spots where the treatment was carried out can develop and be visible for a few months. This is likely due to the use of cosmetic products after the treatment. These spots will eventually subside over time. No cosmetic products should be applied on the treated areas.
A strict after care regime needs to be followed following the treatment with Plasma Fibroblast treatment
