With Plasma Surgical

We all have minor skin imperfections such as skin tags, age spots and Milia. Joolia Gilvey, our aesthetic nurse is able to easily remove these skin lesions with Plasma Surgical, a safe, effective procedure. 

Skin tags are painless, noncancerous growths on the skin. They’re connected to the skin by a small, thin stalk called a peduncle. 

Skin tags are common in both men and women, especially after age 50. Skin tags can appear anywhere on your body, though they’re commonly found in places where your skin folds such as the armpits, groin, thighs, eyelid, neck and area under the breasts.

Range of lesions treated

A milium cyst is small, white bump that typically appears on the nose and cheeks. These cysts are often found in groups, and in these cases are called milia. The cysts occur when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin. These are easily treatable with Plasma Surgical. Age spots can also be effectively treated.

This treatment gives you the opportunity to experience the positive results of surgery, but with minimal downtime and without the risks associated.

Plasma surgical can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and to remove pigmentation. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Plasma surgical treatment works by triggering a contraction of the skin fibres to bring about a tightening, lifting and remodelling effect. Plasma uses plasma energy to achieve this. The principle involves the ionisation of gases contained in the air to create a miniature “arc” of energy which can be used to treat specific areas of concern without damaging the surrounding areas or applying any unwanted heat. Plasma treatment is much less invasive than laser or diathermy.

The advantage of Plasma is that it offers an alternative to surgery, which itself can be highly invasive, have associated risks and may involve prolonged downtime. There is minimal downtime and risk of complication associated with Plasma treatment.

Immediately following treatment, the skin may feel tight and a throbbing, burning sensation may be felt. Sunburn-like redness can be seen immediately after treatment and the small ‘dots’ from the treatment will be visible. The skin will feel hot and we may ask you to apply an ice pack or use a cooling fan. Swelling, discolouration and flaking can be expected in the days posttreatment. Once the redness has subsided after 1-2 days the skin will appear darker. This is old skin and will quickly be replaced by ‘new’ pink skin.
