PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING
*loose skin tight and regenerated. Ideal for eyelids and lip lines
Is plasma skin tightening painful?
Despite of the treatment is non-invasive; the doctor uses a numbing cream to make the procedure painless and comfortable for our Melbourne cosmetic treatment. Please, let us know if you have sensitivity or allergy on anaesthetic products. Some of our Melbourne cosmetic clients prefer not to use numbing cream due to it’s irritative and skin drying features. If you can tolerate well the skin tightening procedure, our expert cosmetic doctor in Melbourne clinic will use alternative (less strong, but less side effects) pain relief.
How does it work?
Fascinating concept of plasma itself and it’s use in cosmetic medicine.
It is well known these days the matter has four states – solid, liquid, gas and plasma. Plasma is described as a “liquified gas” in which the electrons are stripped from atoms to form an ionised gas, in which ions are free to move. The device generates plasma, when it touches the skin surface, the heat widens and is subsequently transferred into the epidermis all the way to the papillary layer of derma which contains fibroblast cells. Tissues are treated “sublimate” and we avoid spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding areas. The surrounding healthy skin will be a source of regeneration. The result is contraction and tightening of the skin, as well as superficial resurfacing based on creating a controlled skin damage, which activates its healing, and this leads to the skin regeneration and improvement in the texture and quality. Melbourne cosmetic clinic patients often interested not just in what new innovative skin tightening devices in Melbourne are available, but also how it works.
