Skin Rejuvenation and Tightening using a Plasma device

The residual heat from the plasma ‘flash’ targets fibroblasts in the skin’s dermal layer, accelerating collagen and elastin production. This natural healing response leads to the tightening of redundant skin and skin rejuvenation, the results of plasma therapy, are clear to see, long-lasting, and often permanent. Immediately following plasma therapy, the treated area is left with tiny carbon crusts, which begin to exfoliate after 3 to 5 days, just after the swelling has gone down. Downtime is minimal and aftercare is easy however, managing clients’ expectations is vital from the outset, as the completed outcome needs 12 weeks for the skin to remodel, and complete the development of Type 1 collagen and elastin, leaving the treated skin tighter and more supple.

This unit includes the relationship between the inflammatory response and skin remodelling, skin ageing and disorders, topical anaethesia, and the principles of fibroblasting. It also covers vital information that clients must understand for them to make an informed consent for this procedure. Practical training covers plasma protocols and adaptation of procedure to meet client’s needs. Theory is assessed by short answer questions completed online, with oral questioning, observational checklists and case studies completed during practical training.
