As we age, we begin to notice many changes in the way we look, particularly on our faces. From fine lines and wrinkles, to hooded eyelids or sun damage, ageing takes its toll on our skin in a variety of ways, and it can be confusing to know how to treat these issues.
At the Medical & Cosmetic Centre, we pride ourselves on bringing new, high-quality treatment options to our patients to help combat the effects of ageing. We are delighted to offer the innovative Plasma BT treatments, which help to treat a wide variety of skin and aesthetic issues, from acne to hooded eyelids.
Both Dr Nestor and Dr Ali are trained in delivering Plasma BT treatments and can guide you through the process to improved, healthy skin.
Plasma BT FAQ
What is Plasma BT?
Plasma is an ionised gas, the fourth state of matter (after solids, liquids and gas). The gaseous state of plasma has been ionised by high temperature and high electricity, meaning that it can hold an electrical charge. This electrical charge works throughout the surface of the skin to the epidermal layer, and as the energy flows deeper within the skin, its intensity and its effects change to generate a variety of results, giving scope for treating multiple issues in one application.
Plasma is fatal to bacteria, making it effective for use in acne treatments, whilst also supporting skin’s cell regeneration, helping skin to look younger and fresher.
How does it work?
On the skin’s surface layer, germs and bacteria are destroyed as the plasma breaks down their molecular structures. At the epidermis, the skin’s absorption rate can be dramatically increased by up to 120%, meaning that any skincare products used post-treatment are likely to be more effective. At the dermal layer, deep within the skin structure, the plasma works to tighten ageing skin and stimulates the generation of collagen, for a plumper and more youthful look.
Plasma BT uses advanced, focused atmospheric pressure plasma technology to deliver a selection of treatments that target various skin concerns, offering long-lasting results without the need for invasive surgery. We currently offer two kinds of Plasma BT treatment: Plasma Surgical and Plasma Shower.
Plasma Surgical is a non-surgical treatment that works for various skin concerns, and should only be administered by trained and accredited healthcare professionals.
A needle like tip is used to target the plasma very precisely, exactly where it’s required. The plasma sublimates excess tissue, and triggers skin tissue regeneration and collagen production, all achieved without incisions or sutures. The result: lifted and more youthful looking skin.
We are delighted to offer Plasma Surgical non-invasive eye contouring in the clinic, improving the appearance of eye bags and hooded eyelids (non-surgical blepharoplasty). The treatment can help lift and open up the eyes, as well as tightening areas to create a more wide-awake and youthful look.
Plasma BT’s unique bacteria-destroying abilities make it an effective treatment for the signs of acne and overproduction of oil in the skin. We offer the Plasma Shower treatment to help assist our patients with these skincare concerns.
Plasma Shower is an extremely fast procedure that works to reduce active acne. It removes bacteria, aids absorption levels within the skin, and stimulates the production of collagen too, for clearer, healthier and firmer skin. This treatment is quick and very effective, with no downtime required.
Plasma Surgical can also be used to treat fatty deposits under the eyes (xanthmelasma) and crow’s feet, reduce wrinkles and remove skin tags, as well as softening some scars.
The Plasma Surgical treatments usually require around 5-7 days of recovery time, which should be factored in prior to booking any treatment.
We can use the Plasma Shower with RRS Whitening; a product specially formulated to help brighten the skin. It’s particularly effective in assisting with dark under-eye pigmentation, to create a brighter, wide-awake look.
For our Plasma BT patients, we also offer supplementary medical-grade skincare that offers proven results, to support the treatments.
In particular, we recommend combining Plasma BT treatments with Calecim, a clinically-proven stem cell serum, which is backed by an extensive body of science and is proven to reduce any required recovery time and improve your end results.
The technology that sets Calecim apart is derived from umbilical cord lining, which is a patented source of ethically-sourced stem cells, from which powerful rejuvenating proteins are cultured.
