Skin Renewal with Plasma IQ Treatment

September 26, 2022 by A Younger You

Skin Renewal

Plasma IQ is a revolutionary device that delivers rejuvenating treatment to the skin using focused energy. It's one of just two such devices that have been cleared by the FDA for this purpose.

In fact, Plasma IQ is also the first FDA Class II handheld plasma device. Unlike many other skin rejuvenation products, the Plasma IQ device takes a holistic approach to treatment by working with the body's natural processes. A Younger You Medical Spa is proud to offer Plasma IQ treatment at our locations.

What Does Plasma IQ Treat?

The general purpose of this skin rejuvenation treatment is to revitalize and tighten skin, ultimately giving it a more youthful appearance. The device uses microbeams of focused energy in a quick and minimally invasive procedure. Some of the conditions Plasma IQ treats include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Moles and skin tags
  • Warts
  • Acne
  • Crow's feet
  • Under-eye bags
  • Marionette lines

In addition, it's often used as an eyelid wrinkle treatment, as it can tighten the skin around the eyes. Since the device uses controlled energy, we can treat the more delicate and smaller areas of the skin, including the lips, around the eyes, the décolletage, and the neck.

This treatment is also effective in treating hemangiomas, hooded eyelids, skin on the legs and knees, and other skin concerns.

How Does Plasma IQ Work?

This skin tightening treatment works by introducing ionized nitrogen gas between the skin's surface and the tip of the handheld device, which effectively and safely causes micro-injuries to the skin.

When the nitrogen gas particles are ionized, they create a plasma arc, which looks like a spark. This process triggers the body's natural healing responses, which include increased production of elastin and collagen.

This highly customizable treatment leverages the microbeams of plasma energy by causing sublimation in the outer layer of the skin. The specialized procedure results in immediate retraction and skin tightening in the treatment area.

The plasma energy also penetrates the deeper dermal layer of the skin, which is the layer that contains fibroblasts. These fibroblasts are what produce collagen and elastin. The results of a Plasma IQ treatment are often immediate and get even better with time. The final results are usually visible three to six weeks after treatment.

Because the device delivers such a precise, controlled energy beam, skin tissue around the treatment area is not harmed. This reduces downtime and improves the healing process for our patients.

The body's natural healing response promotes smoothing and firming as the fibroblasts continue to improve the skin, delivering visible results that last a long time.

Plasma IQ Treatment: What to Expect

Once you arrive for your treatment, we'll take you to the treatment area and make sure you're comfortable. We'll apply a numbing agent to your skin at the treatment area to make sure you stay comfortable throughout the procedure.

We can perform Plasma IQ treatments in our office in about 30 minutes. The exact time of your treatment sessions will depend on how many areas you are treating, how large your treatment area is, and the aesthetic goals you want to achieve.

There are two levels of plasma energy that we can use to deliver powerful, safe treatment for a wide variety of indications and areas. The precise amount of energy for your treatments will be either high (950V) or low (650V).

As mentioned, immediate results are possible, especially if the goal is skin tightening. Some patients may need to come back for subsequent treatments, depending on their precise aesthetic goals.

While most patients who undergo this treatment can expect to enjoy their results for one to three years, depending on the nature of the conditions treated, you may or may not need intermittent treatments to maintain your results.

Downtime is minimal or non-existent, so you won't need to arrange your schedule to take significant time off work or postpone all of your social engagements.

Plasma IQ Treatment for Your Skin

Even though the microbeams of energy used during treatment are powerful, the treatment itself is minimally invasive and quick to complete. Whether you want to remove a mole, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or improve your skin's texture, you'll find that the Plasma IQ device provides additional benefits as well.

This FDA-cleared aesthetic treatment doesn't just rejuvenate the surface of the skin, it rejuvenates the skin from deep below the surface, which produces long-lasting results.

The texture and smoothness of the skin should improve, which contributes to its overall natural glow. The fibroblasts continue working and healing skin tissue over the three months following treatment.

Are You a Candidate for Plasma IQ Skin Treatments?

Most patients make great candidates for Plasma IQ skin treatments. The best candidates are those people who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for treatment.

If you're interested in addressing any of the wide variety of skin concerns that Plasma IQ can treat and you prefer a non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation, this treatment may be the ideal solution for you.
