PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING SERVICES & TRAINING
** WHAT IS SKIN NEEDLING OR PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING? **

Plasma Skin Tightening (also referred to as PST, MicroNeedling, Skin Needling, Collagen Induction Therapy) is one the newest, easiest and most effective skin treatments available. The treatment is intended to significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines, wrinkles, scars, crows feet, pigmentation issues, and stretch marks. Our method will boost skin radiance, and firmness where visible improvements can be seen.

All services are done by a professionally trained artist, not by students.

How does PST work?
 The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.


Who's the best candidate for PST?
Well we all age right? But lets face it, some clients show wrinkles much sooner and/or more prominately than others, lucky us! Clients will see noticeable results if they have more prominent wrinkles and/or their skin is sagging. Those with relatively subtle wrinkles won’t see as dramatic of a result. This doesn’t mean a person with low/mild wrinkles won’t benefit from the treatment. There is a list of non-candidates below.


What can I expect during the treatment?
PST procedures are performed by a professionally trained artist. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes (sometimes longer) depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic and is applied to the client’s skin to ensure their comfort and a painless experience. After the skin is numbed, the artist starts the procedure on the client’s skin to create small dots (a minor smell is normal), a needle is NEVER punctured into the skin. Only the outermost layers of the skin is affected, and this create miniscule sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year, minor swelling is normal. Every client will vary with results.


What is the science behind the treatment?
Plasma is the 4th state of matter, prior to plasma we believed matter could only come in three states (solid, gas and liquid) Plasma occurs when the gases of the atmospheric air are ionized. When plasma comes in contact with our skin it causes the effect of sublimation (definition: turning something that's solid from solid into gas). The reaction that's created is when the skin goes through the process of sublimation by coming into contact with plasma, meaning we are evaporating the skin (sounds scary but it's not). The sublimation caused by the machine occurs in a superficial, non-invasive level, and is safe for the skin. When skin is exposed to plasma and goes through sublimation, this reaction causes an instant contraction to the surrounding tissues of the skin without damaging any adjacent skin tissue. It's important to know that this instant contraction is a reaction that occurs when cells in the skin become dehydrated, this instant contraction is likely to be reduced as the skin heals in the following weeks and the results get better after 8 weeks. This process is non-invasive, almost painless, with no downtime, and is much more affordable than surgery.


What happens post-treatment?
After the procedure, the clients skin will immediately create carbon crusts, these are never to be picked off, and will eventually shed within 5-7 days. Minor redness or swelling is normal. The client will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch of the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours and within the next 24 hours. After 3-7 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.


How quickly are results visible?
 Visible results of skin rejuvenation are seen almost immediately, and they aren’t final. Due to the dehydration of the skin, cell tightening is very radical in the beginning and will slow down the next two weeks, however the condition of the skin will continue to improve for 8 weeks. To see true results, a client will need to wait 8 weeks. Like anything the duration of results will vary, the usual client will see results for 9 months to a couple of years. Plasma Skin Tightening does not stop the progress of aging, however the treatment will help reduce and even eliminate signs of aging (wrinkles), as your body ages the wrinkles will show up again. We recommend you repeat the treatment within 9-12 months. A course of 3 skin needling sessions are recommended, at 6-8 week intervals, in order to achieve optimal results. Clients are also encouraged to use at home products on a daily basis in between their next skin needling session to enhance results.


Is PST safe?
The process does not involve injections, therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, and involves minimal downtime (usually 24 hours). Rapid healing takes place immediately and the procedure requires simple after-care.


Can PST be carried out on darker skin types?
This treatment is recommended on skin types that are lighter (Fitzpatrick I-IV), however a patch test can be performed on darker skin types (Fitzpatrick V-VI). There is usually no risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation as the melanocytes remain intact, like the epidermis, during skin needling. Other invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing are not recommended for Asian skin due to the potential risks of delayed wound healing, pigmentary changes and scarring. This is where skin needling has an advantage as these potential risks are very unlikely to occur due to the epidermis remaining intact. Use of skin needling is viewed as a suitable procedure as it does not affect the heightened wound healing response in Asian skin. This natural reaction that occurs does not disrupt the melanocytes, the cells that produce melanin which is a pigment responsible for skin colour.

Does it hurt?
Heck yes! Just kidding!! ;) The tip of the electrode is designed to hit the surface of the skin so pain is minimal, we do not go deep enough to touch nerves and cause excessive pain. When done correctly minimal discomfort is felt. There are certain areas of the face that are more sensitive. We use a topical numbing agent which is applied 30 minutes before the procedure takes place. Once the procedure starts if the patient is still experiencing pain then additional anaesthetic may be applied after the skin is slightly broken to allow the topical to penetrate quicker.


What aftercare is needed after the treatment?
Please do not wash the area for 12 hours. Once you get home, you will apply a thin layer of the aftercare balm provided to you to speed up the healing process. Apply a thin layer of the balm daily for the first 7 days. Before applying the balm each day, clean the area with a clean cloth and water by tapping into it gently. Don't use the balm at night and it's important to sleep face up in order to not rub the area against your pillow. After 48 hours, you can cover the carbon crusts with makeup if you want to conceal them, however this is not recommended usually until after 7-10 days, so use makeup sparingly and only if needed. The carbon crusts will shed in the next few days (approximately 5-7 days); when they shed you will see pinkish skin, this is brand new skin and still is in the healing process, you will see final results after 6-8 weeks. Swelling is possible (although unlikely) in delicate areas, this should disappear after 2 days. Redness can be expected and usually goes away after a couple hours. Direct sunlight is strictly forbidden for the first 7-10 days, please wear sunglasses or a hat if you can. Do NOT pick or scratch the carbon crusts because this will increase the risk of hyperpigmentation. Do not use aggressive skin products as well.


What are the contraindications of skin needling treatments?
Relative contraindications include: botox/fillers within 30 days, darker skin types due to hyperpigmentation (patch test), high blood pressure (physician consent), history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis, history of Herpes Simplex infections, and history of diabetes (physician consent). Absolute contraindications include: scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities, Rosacea and blood clotting problems, active bacterial or fungal infection, immunosuppression, scars less than 6 months old, pregnant/nursing women, keloid tendancies, cancer and/or pacemaker patients.


Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling? 
Side effects experienced with PST are very minimal and will usually subside within 24 hours. They include redness, stinging, minor swelling, itching, tightness and shedding of carbon crusts.​
