PLASMA ENERGY DEVICE
WHAT IS IT?
Plasma IQ is a minimally invasive treatment that rejuvenates the skin with an advanced energy-based technology. The Plasma IQ device creates microbeams of plasma energy to the treatment area to help reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles on the face for a refreshed and renewed appearance. At Distinct Medical Aesthetics we use the Plasma IQ on the body to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Plasma IQ is a radio frequency device that releases energy to the skin causing micro injuries to the skin. These microinjuries sustained during treatment promote the long-term firming, tightening, and smoothing effects that are part of the natural healing response.
Plasma IQ is the only health Canada plasma energy device on the market and should only be used by highly trained providers
HOW IT WORKS?
Plasma IQ is one of the latest advancement in medical aesthetics that delivers focused, controlled plasma energy to safely and effectively create microinjuries on the skin, renewing and restoring it. This regenerative process causes the skin to tighten in the targeted areas such as around the eyes, mouth and neck. With it’s dermal ablation, it resurfaces the skin and new skin grows in.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE?
This procedure is used to tighten the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Most commonly performed on fair and light tone skin types targeting the crows feet around the eyes and the smokers lines around the mouth.
Plasma IQ can also be used to remove skin tags and lesions and to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and surgical scars on the body.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?
There may be stinging in the treated area immediately following treatment. This is normal and typically lasts for about an hour, but some variation in time may occur.
The typical healing process is about 5-7 days on the face and up to 2 weeks on the body. It is important that you DO NOT pick at or scratch at scabs during the healing phase. This may delay healing or cause scarring.
At Distinct Medical Aesthetics we will provide a customized skin care protocol following your treatment.
