The Next Generation of Plasma Energy Skin Rejuvenation

Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Aging-Related Facial Volume Loss

Plasma IQ is the latest advancement in aesthetics that delivers focused, controlled plasma energy to safely and effectively create microinjuries on the skin, renewing and restoring it — delivering a tighter, smoother, more youthful aesthetic. Plasma skin resurfacing helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial volume loss. Plasma resurfacing can also be used to treat skin discolorations as well as minimize age spots and remove skin tags and certain precancerous marks.

Plasma skin resurfacing can gently and progressively enhance skin appearance + renew & resurface skin by stimulating skin cell growth as well as skin protein production.

Plasma IQ is an innovative, non-surgical solution that helps improve the appearance of aging skin in delicate areas of the face. The device utilizes precise plasma technology to give the skin a refreshed and renewed appearance + improved complexion.

How It Works

Skin Renewal Powered by Focused Plasma Energy

Plasma IQ is a focused energy treatment leveraging microbeams of plasma, resulting in tightening and retraction of the skin tissues through controlled microinjuries to the skin which regenerate, renew, and rejuvenate your complexion by kicking your body’s collagen and elastin renewal processes into hyperdrive.

Natural Results
with Minimal Downtime

The Plasma IQ electrifies the air particles, resulting in a small spark between the device and your skin, triggering your body’s natural healing response. The precise design and careful technique ensures that there is minimal damage to your surrounding area, reducing the downtime of treatment and increasing the speed of healing. This minimizes the risks and severity of side effects with recovery taking one week, on average.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Skinny on Plasma IQ / Plasma Fibroblasting

What cosmetic concerns does a plasma skin resurfacing procedure treat?

Plasma skin resurfacing can gently and progressively enhance the skin appearance through a minimally invasive procedure to stimulate skin cell growth and skin protein production.

  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles: Collagen stimulation reduces signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Facial Skin Laxity: Collagen and elastin production increases to tighten skin.
  • Uneven Skin Tone: Areas of hyperpigmentation are broken down creating a more uniform complexion.
  • Uneven Skin Texture: RF energy with nitrogen gas breaks down deposits of damaged and dead skin cells to smooth skin texture.

What is plasma skin resurfacing?

Plasma skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing procedure. Ultrahigh radiofrequency waves impart energy to a flow of inert nitrogen gas delivered deep into the epidermis, encouraging collagen production. Plasma skin resurfacing, unlike laser skin resurfacing, does not cause skin to immediately peel, which allows the outermost skin layer to act as a protective dressing while deeper layers heal.

Once the damaged skin naturally exfoliates, the new skin layer will be revealed. Increased collagen and elastin production will continue for months creating plumper, more youthful skin.

Who is the ideal candidate for a plasma skin resurfacing procedure?

The ideal candidate for plasma skin resurfacing has early signs of aging like wrinkles and skin discoloration, although plasma skin resurfacing can also treat deeper wrinkles and more irregular complexions with multiple treatments. Plasma skin resurfacing is not recommended for candidates with darker skin tones, those with skin types prone to scarring, those with open wounds, severe acne, lupus, psoriasis, or vitiligo, those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or anyone who is immune-deficient.

What is the average recovery associated with a plasma skin resurfacing procedure?

During skin healing, mild redness may persist for two to three days. Some flaking or shedding may last up to 10 days. Limiting sun exposure, wearing sunblock, and regular moisturization will help to lessen recovery time, and enhance the results of the treatment.

What can be expected during the recovery period?

Your face will show redness, irritation, and a grid pattern of brown, dot-like wounds during the healing process, so most people will want to take up to two weeks of social downtime. During this time, you’ll likely experience redness, swelling, scabbing, and flaking.

 

Avoid exercise, heat, steam, and any activity that makes you sweat for at least 48 hours after treatment; this can intensify inflammation.

 

To help reduce swelling, apply covered ice packs (10 minutes on, 10 minutes off) and sleep with your head elevated.

 

By day three, most of the swelling will have subsided and the plasma-induced dots will begin to crust and scab. Tiny scabs from micro-injuries usually fall off within five to seven days. To avoid scarring, patients need to let scabs fall off naturally—no picking. The remaining skin will appear pink, which can be covered up with mineral based make-up. New skin will be more sensitive to UVA/UVB rays, so wearing protective sunscreen with zinc oxide and/or titanium oxide is important.

What can someone expect from the results of a Plasma Skin Resurfacing procedure?

The results of a plasma skin resurfacing procedure will develop over a few weeks. Final results will become noticeable after three months, and will continue to improve for six months. Several treatments may be needed to attain the desired results. Upkeep treatments are typically needed once a year depending on the individual.

How long do the results from Plasma IQ Fibroblasting last?

Results from plasma fibroblasting treatments typically last about three years, but this varies depending on the patient.

Once new collagen forms, it has been shown to stick around for upwards of 15 years. But since the aging process never stops, existing collagen is constantly being broken down.

A treatment plan that includes annual follow-ups can help prolong results. Wearing a sunscreen with an SPF of 30+ will also help preserve collagen and prevent new wrinkles.

What are the potential side effects of a Plasma Skin Resurfacing procedure?

Possible side effects following a plasma skin resurfacing include excessive peeling, crusting, redness, swelling, or temporary hyperpigmentation.
