The Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International is a revolutionary treatment which delivers incredible, long lasting results all without the need of suturing, scalpels, general anaesthetic or costly invasive cosmetic surgery. It tightens, lifts and shrinks excess skin with instant results improving over the following couple of weeks. Fantastic results can be achieved on areas such as eyelids, under eyes, neck and above and below the lips. The hand held device delivers a plasma flash from the tip to the skin creating a series of tiny brown spots in the desired area which then causes the skin to contract instantly and further during the healing process resulting in the reduction of the excess skin.
Excess skin around the eyes is massively reduced (eyelids, eyebags and crow's feet), excess skin on the neck can be treated with fantastic results, excess skin around the jawline is tightened and any 'static' lines (lines at rest) can also be treated successfully. Results can last up to 3 years following this treatment. In some cases a second or third treatment may be required at 3-6 monthly intervals which would be discussed during consultation and follow-up.
The procedure can be slightly painful in some areas however anaesthetic cream is applied to the area prior to treatment to minimise this. Immediately after treatment there is usually a slight burning sensation which should resolve over the next couple of hours and swelling will be evident. The swelling in some areas can last up to several days. The excess skin dries superficially over the treated area and begins to flake away and fall off in the form of dandruff over the following days, in some cases this may last over a couple of weeks.
It is important to keep the area clean and dry during the healing process and not to pick the crusted areas as this may lead to scarring or infection. A high protection SPF must be used every day post healing to prevent disruption to pigmentation in the skin.
