Plasma Skin Tightening
Literally shrinks the skin
Rapidly growing in popularity, this rejuvenation treatment is highly-effective and non-invasive. This process shrinks and tightens the skin permanently.
I was so unhappy with the skin under my eyes. I had this treatment done with Cookie and it has literally changed my life. It’s like I’ve truned the clock back ten years.
Often wrongly referred to as “Fibroblast” this is a relatively new treatment that causes hundreds of little micro-traumas using a tiny arc, a bit like laser. As these tiny traumas heal the skin shrinks and tightens.
The treatment can be applied almost anywhere and the chosen pattern determines how the skin will shrink.
This is a safe and simple procedure that uses the body’s own natural healing process to change the skin and achieve a younger, smoother appearance.
This treatment is carried out by our Plasma Technician, Cookie McCarron.
Prices can vary according to the individual and the sizes of the areas to treat. Some areas overlap and are usually discounted.
The best way to determine the price of a treatment to suit you is to come in for a consultation with Cookie. There’s no charge for consultation and no obligation to go ahead.
Areas that come in pairs (undereyes, cheeks, jowls etc) are priced together as a single area.
|Each extra area||£150|
“Cookie is very gentle and professional, just like Allison, and she explains everything as she goes along.
I had my marionette lines and jowls done and the results are brilliant! Eyes next 🙂 ”
“My friend recommended this clinic and I’m so glad she did. It’s a lovely, welcoming place. Very calm and relaxing.
The treatment was fine. Cookie is lovely. The skin under my eyes is much less baggy than before.”
Who should have Plasma Skin Tightening?
This treatment is ideal for anyone looking to shrink and tighten an area of skin. There are a few exceptions further down the page.
Is there a consultation for this treatment?
Yes. This treatment can only be undertaken following a face-to-face consultation with Cookie, our Plasma Technician, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Will it hurt?
Whilst you may experience some mild discomfort it’s unlikely to be any more than that. We use a lidocaine topical anaesthetic cream which is given plenty of time to take effect before treatment.
Is the Plasma Skin Tightening safe?
This treatment is very safe and side effects are very rare.
What happens after treatment?
Immediately after the treatment there may be some swelling. This can last from a few hours to 3 or 4 days depending on how you react.
Tiny crusts will form after a day or two and these will then fall off after a day or two more. There may be red marks where the crusts were but these will soon fade away.
There’s a lot more detail about what to expect post-treatment in the aftercare section below.
What areas can benefit from this treatment?
Almost anywhere where skin-tightening can improve appearance. Around the eye area is most often chosen but forehead, cheeks, jowls, jawline, marionette lines, naso-labial lines and neck are also very popular choices.
How long do the effects of Plasma Skin Tightening last?
The effects are permanent but they don’t stop the natural aging process. The best way to look at it is to say that it turns back the clock but it keeps ticking so you may need the treatment again at some point in the future.
Will I be able to have another treatment later?
Yes. The healing process is perfectly natural and it’s quite alright to have more treatments.
What are the possible side effects?
The most common side effect is swelling. This should go down after a day or two. In rare cases this treatment can also cause hyperpigmentation.
Are there any circumstances under which I should not have this treatment?
Yes. There are some circumstances under which you should not have Plasma Skin Tightening or precautions should be taken.
Contraindications will be discussed during consultation. Please let us know if you have any condition that you think might be affected by the treatment.
