What product is used?
The Mid Yorkshire Skin Clinic is one of the few clinics in the UK offering Plasma BT treatment. This machine/system is based on focused advanced plasma technology and is only used by medical professionals.
How does it work?
The Plasma BT is a low-electricity medical device which uses atmospheric pressure to generate plasma. This plasma is used to create tiny controlled injuries to the sagging skin which results in collagen remodelling and skin tightening. The device has two attachments; a surgical attachment and plasma shower. The tuneable plasma device can be utilised in order to deliver differing depths of effect, including deep dermal heating to promote collagen renewal, and superficial epidermal sloughing to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Plasma sublimation is a complete innovation in the world of aesthetic medicine; it delivers the same results as an invasive surgical procedure, without a single cut to the skin being required.
A non-surgical blepharoplasty (eyebag removal) can be achieved at a fraction of the price of a surgical procedure; with much less treatment and recovery time.
- Sublimation and skin tightening with no damage to surrounding tissues
- Alternative to laser/fractional skin treatments which can cause damage the outer layers of skin
- No injectables required – Injectables aren’t always an option for some individuals
- Results are permanent comparable to a surgical procedure
Plasma BT offers more instant and longer lasting results than with other non-surgical modalities such as cryogenics and radiofrequency
