Plasma IQ, also called Plasma lift or cold plasma, is an innovative method that allows you to safely and above all, without any surgery, smooth wrinkled or damaged skin. Until recently, the only way to get rid of excess wrinkled skin was through lengthy, sometimes surgical procedures, but now everything has changed with this recent technology.
It is a different type of energy that uses a targeted microbeam of plasma energy which by local ionization allows direct retraction of the treated skin without harming or affecting the surrounding skin. This procedure can provide surgical results without the actual need for surgery.
It is an increasingly common and minimal method of treatment, which is much faster than surgical solutions and reduces downtime.
The different areas that can be targeted by Plasma IQ as well as the main indications are:
After thoroughly removing make-up and disinfecting the area, the practitioner defines the area to be treated and applies an anesthetic cream for 1 hour before the treatment to avoid any burning sensation.
The practitioner approaches the needle tip of the Plasma IQ device to the skin. Without contact or breaking the skin at 1mm distance from the skin, a light flash is generated, producing a large amount of heat limited to the point of the shot. This released heat rich in ions and electrons will cause the vaporization of the superficial cells of the skin: these retract immediately, and each impact of treatment is then materialized by a small crust of carbonization of less than one millimeter in diameter. The practitioner determines precise shooting points according to the indication to be treated. Each shot lasts less than one second.
As soon as the treatment is finished, the doctor applies ice to cool the eyelids and then disinfects the skin by tapping without removing the carbonization crusts.
Plasma IQ treatments can quickly and permanently tighten your loose skin and can give you the look you've always wanted without the need for surgery.
BEFORE: You should always keep your skin hydrated, especially before having a Plasma IQ treatment. Also, avoid the sun as much as possible and always wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher during the day. Reduce the consumption of alcohol and tobacco as they can affect the process of collagen formation, which can compromise the success of the treatment.
DURRING: It should be noted that slight discomfort may be felt during the operation. There is no need to worry in case this happens as it is a normal sensation which depends on the location of the skin targeted by the treatment. An anesthetic cream will be applied to you 1 hour before in the office to make the treatment more comfortable.
AFTER: You should avoid exfoliating the scabs as this can delay the healing process. Also, you may need to apply ice packs covered with a piece of cloth to the operated area as needed, avoid putting ice directly on the skin. Do not take anti-inflammatory medications as the inflammatory response is a key part of the Plasma IQ treatment process. Clean the area with a warm, damp cloth twice a day until completely healed. Avoid hot showers within 2-3 days of treatment as they may irritate the affected area.
SEQUENCES: There are a few small brownish crusts on the treated area which will fall off naturally in 3-7 days. The treatment is very well tolerated and there are no side effects. The only consequences are sometimes temporary redness or edema which disappears spontaneously after 1 to 3 days depending on the location.There is no social eviction because the scabs can be made up or hidden by sunglasses.
You can see the final results of the treatment performed by our experts at Clinique Main D'or approximately 4-6 weeks after the operation, some patients report immediate results but it is better to wait a bit to see the final results of the treatment.
The results are spectacular, natural and are visible after one month after the treatment.
As far as the eyelids are concerned, the results are those of eyelid surgery without surgery. Your look is sublimated, illuminated, becomes younger and above all less heavy...
Plasma IQ is one of the best practices used in modern aesthetic medicine, and it has a very bright future ahead of it.
