Plasma Surgical

Plasma treatment, also known as Plexr soft surgery or Plasma surgery, is a revolutionary invention in the field of non surgical aesthetic medicine. Allowing delicate and specialised surgical treatments to be performed in a minimally invasive procedure.

Using advanced focused Plasma technology to tighten the skin.

Plasma treatment works by triggering a contraction of the skin fibres to bring about a tightening, lifting and remodelling effect. Plasma treatment is perfect for delicate non surgical eye lid tightening surgery (blepharoplasty) as well as other skin tightening treatments.

Treatments:

  • Upper and Lower eye lid blepharoplasty
  • Brow Lift
  • Milia removal
  • Xanthelasma (fatty eye deposits)
  • Crows feet
  • Smile lines
  • Lines around the mouth (bar code lines)
  • Full face skin tightening

  • Skin Tags
  • Mole and wart removal
  • Scar and Stretch mark improvement
  • Acne Scarring improvement
  • Selective tattoo removal

Plasma treatment may be performed as a course of 3 sessions (or more if further improvement to severe laxity is needed).

 

Treatment is:

  • Safe and in compliance with European and FDA standards
  • Focused and targeted to delivery precise results.
  • Plasma treatment is much less invasive than laser or diathermy
  • There is minimal downtime and risk of complication associated with Plasma treatment vs surgery.

Treatment works by forming plasma (the fourth state of matter) in the 1-2mm space between the tip of the device and the skin. Plasma forms a tiny arch which triggers a process called sublimation – where a solid turns straight into a gas – this in turn causes the fibres of the skin to shrink, contract and tighten. Tightening of the skin fibres contracts the surface area of the skin, creating an improvement in the appearance of drooping or sagging skin on the face, eyelids etc Due to the precise nature of Plasma, where heat is very accurately directed and doesn’t transfer to the surrounding tissues, Plasma is a safe and comfortable treatment.

Other skin tightening treatments include Fractora. However few treatments are suitable for the delicate skin of the eye lid.

Is this treatment suitable for me?

Eyelid tightening blepharoplasty using plasma surgical treatment is suitable for most people. We discuss your medical history at your new patient consultation and would ask you to postpone treatment if you were pregnant or breastfeeding.

How safe is treatment?

Plasma surgical skin tightening is considered a safe treatment as plasma causes immediate skin tightening through sublimation. There is no electric current or heat transferred.

Will I feel any pain or discomfort during my treatment?

Local anaesthetic is applied prior to treatment to minimise any discomfort with local anaesthetic injections in some areas. Treatment may feel warm in some places and you may experience a tingling sensation.

Are there any associated risks?

Side effects are minimal if any. Treatment site tenderness may occur. Your skin will have an immediate tightening effect and the plasma will show as little sterile dots on the skin. These heal as your skin tightens more.

It should not to be used if pregnant or breast feeding as we have no research to prove it is safe for your foetus or child. Care must be taken if diagnosed with neurological or bleeding disorders, currently suffering with a skin infection or allergy or taking particular medication. Your specialist will be able to advise you further.

Please discuss any current medication with the doctor, especially if you are taking aspirin on Ibuprofen. Medication may need to be stopped before treatment.

How much downtime is usually needed and what should I expect?

We recommend 7 days downtime after a plasma blepharoplasty.

After a plasma blepharoplasty treatment, the plasma leaves small dark marks on the skin where the plasma was focused. There will be rows of tiny dots on the skin which should be left as they form a sterile barrier and protect the underlying healing process. These marks become harder and will naturally heal and disappear over the initial 3-4 days. There may be some redness, swelling and bruising which will settle fully in 2 weeks.

Procedure

At Thames Skin clinic we precede all of our treatments with a full consultation. Your treatment will be carried out by Dr Anna Hemming, a highly experienced aesthetic doctor. Your medical history will be taken followed by an examination of your skin concerns. You can discuss whether Plasma treatment is suitable for you and address your expectations from treatment. When the treatment has been fully explained you will be required to sign a consent form and a photograph will be taken for your records.

Following cleansing, local anaesthetic is applied to your skin. This takes 40 minutes to work and minimises any discomfort meaning the treatment will be virtually painless. You will have access to our patient lounge while the local anaesthetic takes effect.

Plasma treatment will then commence. The device is held 1-2mm over your skin and the plasma energy is applied in short bursts to the treatment area. This allows the skin to contract while triggering your body’s unique healing process. The treatment is not painful, some patients experience a warm or hot feeling in places and a tingling sensation afterwards. each treatment session lasts 30 minutes with up to 3 sessions recommended until you see optimum results.

Following treatment, an antiseptic cream or lotion will be applied, normally Clinicept+ along with a specialist serum containing growth factors to aid the healing of your skin.

Dr Hemming will be able to discuss the options most suitable for your skin concerns following examination.

Side effects

Side effects are minimal if any. Treatment site tenderness may occur. Your skin will have an immediate tightening effect and the plasma will show as little sterile dots on the skin. These heal as your skin tightens more.

It should not to be used if pregnant or breast feeding as we have no research to prove it is safe for your foetus or child.

Care must be taken if diagnosed with neurological or bleeding disorders, currently suffering with a skin infection or allergy or taking particular medication. Your specialist will be able to advise you further.

Please discuss any current medication with the doctor, especially if you are taking aspirin on Ibuprofen. Medication may need to be stopped before treatment.

Aftercare

After treatment care

Following plasma treatment tiny dark brown crusts may appear on your skin in the areas the plasma has been focused. These areas must be kept clean. The markings will usually start to heal and will naturally flake off within a few days. They should be fully healed within 2 weeks.

  • There may be some tenderness, redness, swelling and bruising treatment site. This is normal and will subside, usually within a few days (or hours).
  • If swelling or pain persists an anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen can be taken, cold compresses and antihistamines may also be used to help any swelling.
  • If you are concerned, please contact the clinic as soon as possible.
  • Use a cold pack to reduce swelling and /or redness.
  • Do not massage or manipulate the treated area.
  • Apply a SPF 30+ sun screen. Recommended ZO skin health SPF 30 + primer, or ZO Skin Health Sheer SPF50.
  • Stay hydrated
  • Avoid any further cosmetic procedures for until healed.
  • Avoid wearing make up over the area until healed
  • Avoid applying plasters or occlusive dressings over the treated areas.
  • Avoid extreme temperatures (hot and cold) for a minimum of 7 days after treatment (no saunas, steam rooms, sun beds or sun exposure).
  • Avoid touching treatment area without first cleaning hands (can use Clinicsept+)
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Avoid Swimming for 48 hours
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours after treatment

If you have any concerns following treatment with Plasma please contact Thames Skin Clinic immediately.

Your final results depend on your skin laxity in the treatment area, your desired results, the general condition of your skin and healing capability, any pre-existing medical problems. Plasma treatment visibly contracts skin immediately after treatment. Due to the action of the plasma on the skin with sublimation, treatment results can last for years.

Plasma surgical treatments vary by the area of treatment given to achieve the best results. For your concern. There are a number of applications of use for this treatment.  We often get asked about the cost of treatment. At Thames Skin Clinic we pride ourselves on results rather than focus on the price of a treatment, it is more important that we get the correct quality of product rather than offer cut price treatments, products and services (especially when it comes to medical treatments). You will never see Thames Skin Clinic advertising services on social coupon sites such as Groupon as we believe they have a negative impact on our customer safety, results and satisfaction. We also wish to abide by the advertising regulator and work in a safe ethical manor.

Our prices reflect the skill, training and premier product choices we have made as well as the true reflection of the beautiful bespoke clinic surroundings.

Clearer skin at last!

Dr. Hemming is the best when it comes to skin health and rejuvenation. I’ve been loving the OZ skin health range and it’s really improved my skin. (Clearer skin, tighter all over and reduced pore size). I’ve been spot prone all my life and was so fed up with nothing ever working. Finally I have a plan that is clinically proven and safe for my long term skin health. Thank you Dr. Hemming!

I look younger!

I received Fractora treatment now 3 weeks ago from Dr Hemming. There has been a slow healing and gradually I see myself less tired looking and my lines have noticeably reduced . The beginnings of a jowel I had along my jawline has disappeared which is exactly the part of my face that bothered me most. It seems as if I’ve had a face lift! My skin is firmer and the hollows less deep. I dare say I look younger.

I can highly recommend Dr Anna Hemming

I started to develop skin issues around my eyelid area. Having been to see two other dermatologists who were unable to assist due to the delicate and sensitive area around the eyes, it was a welcome relief for Dr Anna Hemming to be recommended to me. She immediately put me at ease, talked me through the available treatments, provided me with a quote and arranged to see me again to carry out the procedure. Within 2 weeks of the initial consultation my treatment was completed. It has made such a difference to my face already. I feel more confident and am so relieved to have found a consultant who not only listened but carried out a procedure that I was told was not possible. I can highly recommend Dr Anna Hemming and have already to my friends. I have no doubt I will use her again for any other derma-logical procedures.

I really trust Dr Anna Hemming

I have been coming to Dr Anna Hemming for wrinkle treatment for the past 4 years. I’m always happy with the fresher natural look she gives me. Friends have been surprised when I tell them I haven’t been on holiday and that my rested look is actually wrinkle treatment. I really trust Dr Hemming to do the best for me and feel safe in her experienced medically qualified hands. So, now she has opened a fabulous new clinic I’m venturing to other treatments. I’ve just had 3 LED sessions with aesthetic practitioner Lizzi (who is very knowledgeable and super friendly) and these have really plumped up my skin . I’ve booked a Hydrafacial for next week. The clinic is a uncluttered minimalist space with the latest skincare equipment. It feels hygienic yet relaxing. It’s a pleasure to visit. Thank you.

Amazing place, lovely staff

I was a bit apprehensive as I had never had a facial before but when I arrived and met Lizzie she put me as ease immediately and the treatment out of this world. Amazing place with lovely staff and a wonderful experience.

I absolutely love the results of the filler on my face and lips

Hi everyone, could you please let Dr Hemming know that I absolutely love the result of the fillers on my face and lips. I wanted a natural look and discussed this with her, and I have to say I was a little anxious about putting filler in my lips but I love them. I have the natural look I discussed with Dr Hemming and the one I was hoping for, it has given me a real confidence boost. Stay safe love Marian x
