Plasma Fibroblast Treatments at ReShapeU
The Revolutionary Non Surgical system that is changing Aesthetic Medicine.
What does non surgical mean?
Non Surgical also known as Soft Surgery treatment is a non-invasive bloodless, reliable, easy to implement and safe procedure. Due to this innovative technique it is now possible to obtain the same results as you would with traditional surgery, without the need of anaesthesia, without scarring and without unnecessary risks.
There are No cuts !
There is No blood !
There are No stitches !
There is also Minimal downtime in comparison to traditional surgical Blepharoplasty.
How does this method of Plasma Fibroblast work?
This innovative technology utilises plasma – formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses – to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres. This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove excess skin. This procedure avoids many of the risks associated with traditional intervention, providing a quick and easy recovery. The treatment is performed without cutting or need of stitches.
At Your Consultation.
All our clients are advised to have a face-to-face consultation with one of our consultants prior to undertaking this procedure. During the consultation we will analyse your tissues and explain the treatment options available.
How is the Plasma Fibroblast treatment performed?
The treatment is performed through dots made with a device at 500 microns apart to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibres. Each of these dots sublimates (which means to change a substance from a solid into a gas) the superficial skin cells without affecting an important deeper layer known as the basal lamina, without causing bleeding and more importantly without damaging surrounding tissue.
During your Plasma Fibroblast treatment.
A standard session lasts 20 -30 minutes depending on the area(s). Patients are required to attend the appointment 30 minutes prior to the actual treatment to have topical numbing cream applied to the area, this will minimise the risk of discomfort during the procedure.
After the treatment / Side effects
Immediately after the treatment the treated area(s) will be quite red and mildly swollen. Patients may experience some further swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area following treatment, which may last up to 3 days. At the site of each dot of treatment a carbon crust immediately forms. Following 5-7 days these crusts will fall off. Some more rare/unlikely side effects could include infection, scarring and temporary changes in skin pigmentation. The likelihood of side effects is minimised by adherence to the aftercare advice given by your consultant when the treatment is performed.
How do I maximise the effects of my treatment?
At the site of each dot of treatment a carbon crust immediately forms. These crusts should not be touched for 5-7 days except to camouflage them with oxygenating post-procedure foundation. We recommend Oxygenetix for this purpose.
Avoid applying moisturising creams until the carbon crusts have fallen off, usually after 5-7 days
Be extra cautious not to rub off the carbon crusts for the first 5-7 days and do NOT pick
Avoid all direct sources of heat i.e. sun, UV radiation and saunas for 4 weeks.
What can I expect to see after my first treatment and how long will it take for me to start noticing the effects?
Most people see noticeable result after the first treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 2-4 weeks. Some patients may require more than one treatment and this is subject to your personal expectation alongside individual differences per patient.
How long will the effect of the treatment last?
The treatment stimulates instant shortening of skin fibres and this process continues to take effect in the first 2-4 weeks. The effect of the treatment is subject to the number of treatments, your lifestyle and ageing process and typically lasts for the same amount of time as traditional surgery such as surgical blepharoplasty which can be many months to years. However, you will still continue to age as you would otherwise and your skin will continue to relax as part of the natural ageing process.
Is this treatment right for me?
If you suffer from loose skin in your upper/lower eyelids that gives you a “tired” look and you are seeking a non-surgical solution to tighten your skin, then this procedure could be your answer.
