FAQs

What is Jet Plasma?

Jet Plasma pen is a handheld plasma device that uses a cooler atmospheric temperature so it does not create surface trauma like traditional fibroblast plasma.

This extremely powerful device penetrates 13,000 volts of plasma through the epidermis, into the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin stimulating high levels of collagen and remodeling the cellular structure from the inside out.

 

What Can Jet Plasma Treat?

When Jet plasma is mixed with oxide oxygen,  ozone is created which kills surface bacteria and is anti inflammatory to aid in calming keratosis, eczema, and rosacea. Jet Plasma is used to tighten the skin, diminish wrinkles, diminish hyper-pigmentation, treat acne, scarring, stretch marks  and aids in product absorption that otherwise couldn’t penetrate as deep without needle injection. 

How Does Jet Plasma Work?

Jet Plasma is the most advanced, revolutionary plasma technology used to brighten and tighten skin, shrink pores and promote high levels of collagen regeneration. Jet plasma works by contracting and tightening the fibers inside of your skin using cold and jet plasma. Because jet plasma uses a cooler frequency, there is no trauma to the outer layers of the skin (meaning no social downtime!)

 

Is Jet Plasma Painful?

Jet Plasma is completely pain free, quick, with zero social downtime, no significant side effects (Skin may look pink and feel tight), and highly effective with long-lasting results! One treatment of the face takes about 15 minutes, and you may see immediate improvement with one treatment, however, like all collagen stimulating treatments, the collagen takes time to regenerate so final results are seen around 6-8 weeks.

How Many Jet Plasma Sessions Do I Need?

To achieve long lasting results it is recommended that a minimum of 3 Jet Plasma treatments is performed on each individual area and up to 8 sessions can be done on the same area in any one treatment cycle. I believe Jet Plasma is one of the most inclusive skin treatments can be used on all skin pigmentation's, all skin types and all skin tones. 

 

Jet Plasma Treatment Areas?

Face is 1 Treatment area 

Neck is a separate treatment area

Arms, Hands, Knees, Tummy, Decolletage

are individual treatment area's.

What Is The Jet Plasma Aftercare?

What is Plasma Pen?

Plasma pen is the world's most advanced, non- invasive, skin tightening, skin lifting and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles and sagging, dull skin. The Plasma Pen is an FDA/TGA approved, CE approved device used to perform friboblast therapy, a technique used to  stimulate production of collagen in the skin.

 

How does Plasma Pen work?

Our highly trained & certified Plasma Pen technicians use the devise to deliver soft-surgery plasma fibroblasting. The plasma significantly lifts, tightens, resurfaces & regenerates almost any area of the skin. 
Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous molecular nitrogen & transmits that energised gas in a non-contact way to the surface of the skin's surface from above.

This causes a micro trauma to the skin's epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. this treatment is also known as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen.

 

What area's of the body can be treated with Plasma Pen?

Fibroblasting produces excellent results for any area of the body, particularly the face and neck regions. It is important for anyone considering fibroblasting treatment to carefully review the Plasma pen Contraindications, Plasma Pen Aftercare Instructions, risks, and skin types that can be safely treated.

  • Herpes Simplex Virus (Cold Sores) - If you have a history of outbreaks you must get a prescription for Valtrex and take it 3 days prior to treatment and continue for 4 days after

 

How long until I see the results?

Plasma Pen skin tightening results are impressive but should not be proposed as an alternative to surgery in cases of moderate to severe skin laxity. Only surgery can achieve these kinds of results.

 

You will typically see immediate tightening along with cumulative improvements over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin. In some cases it may require more than one session depending on the desired results.

 

What are the risks of the Plasma Pen treatment?

The Plasma Pen is a relatively safe treatment, particularly when compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures. However, no procedure is without risks and it’s important to review and understand the contraindications risks. Risks include

:

  • Swelling and bruising

  • Scabbing and crusting

  • Skin discoloration

  • Scarring

 

Is the Plasma Pen treatment painful?

Plasma Pen is mildly to moderately uncomfortable. Everyone’s pain level is different and some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. Numbing cream is helpful in reducing the discomfort during treatment and it is recommended to use cold compress to help with

 

What downtime can I expect after my Plasma Pen treatment?

There IS downtime. “Downtime” is very subjective. What you think “looks bad” and/or is “uncomfortable” can be very different from someone else’s perception.

 

If you are comparing it to cosmetic surgery, then no, the downtime is minimal. If you are comparing it to a light chemical peel where no one can tell you did anything and you are just a bit flaky everywhere, then no.

  • Redness, swelling and scabbing in the treatment area

  • Average of 8 days downtime on the face and neck areas

  • Average of 10 to 14 days on the body, depending on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment

  • Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 3

  • After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form.

  • Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck)

 

Please be aware that the days indicated are simply guidelines for average healing time. Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the after care protocol: no drinking alcohol, no smoking and no picking/scrubbing.

 

If your health is compromised in any way, this can also extend your healing time and negatively affect your results.
