Plasmage treatment

The plasmage treatment is an innovative technique for lifting eyes, eliminating wrinkles, tightening and smoothing skin and removing moles or other skin imperfections, without resorting to surgery.

Plasmage is ideal for those who aren’t quite ready for surgical procedures or consider these unnecessarily risky or expensive. It provides non-invasive skin tightening and is an extremely effective alternative to plastic surgery.

Plasmage behandelingen

Plasmage is suitable for the treatment of:

  • Drooping eyelids
  • Smoker’s lines and lip lines
  • Crow’s feet and laughter lines
  • Sagging skin on the neck line
  • Wrinkles in front of the ears
  • Fine lines on the cheeks
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Benign moles and age spots
  • Skin tags
  • Xanthelasma (yellowish bumps around the eyes)
  • Stretch marks

How does plasmage work?

The plasmage device generates plasma by means of an electrical discharge. Plasma comprises ionised molecules. In physics it’s regarded as the fourth state of matter and thus distinct from solid, liquid and gas.

Once the tip of the device is placed above the skin, it emits a small beam of charged particles which strike the skin with extreme precision. The tip of the device doesn’t touch the skin directly, but rather hovers over it.

It can be compared to the creation of a lightning bolt, yet infinitely smaller and more controlled. The plasma beam causes small pieces of the upper skin layer to evaporate. The skin fibres subsequently contract, resulting in a tightening/lifting effect. This treatment method can also be used to remove skin imperfections.

Non-surgical eyelid correction

Drooping eyelids are part of the natural aging process, but can result in a fatigued appearance or make your eyes feel tired and heavy. Hooded eyes can also make you look older. It’s a common problem that’s typically resolved via surgery. However, since the threshold for surgery tends to be high, the Van Lennep Clinic now offers ‘plasmage’ non-surgical eyelid correction in addition to surgical eyelid correction.

Your skin will appear moderately smoother and tighter directly following treatment. And, as plasmage actively stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin, your results will continue to improve for up to three months after treatment.

FAQ Plasmage

You’ll first be invited to a consultation during which we discuss your health, individual requirements, the various treatment options and your desired results. An anaesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment commencement. We can alternatively provide you with a prescription enabling you to apply the anaesthetic cream yourself some 30 minutes prior to treatment. This ensures that your procedure is virtually pain-free. The treatment itself involves creating a series of tiny dots on your skin using the plasma beam. These precision dots ensure the accurate treatment of every condition.

Plasmage is a non-invasive treatment, thus the recovery period is short. The treated area will appear slightly red and there may be some limited swelling (particularly when treating the eyelids), which can last a few days. Minor scabs are visible immediately after treatment, which drop off automatically within 5-7 days. You’ll receive aftercare advice from your practitioner. You can return home and resume your daily activities immediately following treatment.

One treatment is often sufficient, however, this depends on your condition and requirements. Plasmage typically produces the desired results in 1 to 2 treatments. We recommend maintaining your results with the help of skin-improving treatments from your skin therapist or professional skincare products at home. An annual maintenance treatment may be necessary, depending on the condition of your skin.

We arrange a follow-up appointment 6 weeks after treatment, during which we assess the results. Skin tightening via the stimulation of collagen and elastin continues for several months. The treatment can be repeated as necessary.

We recommend cooling the treated areas to prevent any swelling. You can do this using an icepack or a bag of frozen peas for example. Keep something between your skin and the cooling element (gauze or washcloth) at all times. Repeat at regular intervals for 10 minutes at a time and up to two days following treatment.

Keep the treated area dry and cream-free for at least 2 days after treatment. We recommend subsequently cleaning the treated area with water and/or a mild cleanser. Your practitioner can advise which cleanser to use. It’s important to avoid rubbing the affected area. Pat your skin dry using a clean towel. Whilst you can reapply make-up after 48 hours, we recommend applying as little as possible for as long as any visible scabs remain and exclusively using mineral make-up to promote the healing process.

We advise against visiting saunas within the first 14 days of your plasmage treatment. We also recommend avoiding intensive exercise for as long as any visible scabs remain in the treated area.

The scabs should disappear on their own and typically within 5 – 7 days. The healing process can take 4 – 12 days, depending on the size of the treated area. Avoid touching this area as much as possible (with the exception of cooling and/or cleansing) and don’t pick the scabs! The ‘new skin’ might be slightly pink at first, but any redness will automatically disappear within a few days. Provide your new skin with extra protection during this period via the daily application of UV protection.

The treated skin is extra sensitive to UV radiation. You should therefore avoid direct sunlight for 14 days from the day of treatment. You should also protect the treated area from the sun for at least 3 months using UV protection, to prevent the development of pigmentation spots. We advise against the use of sunbeds. Your doctor can provide advice on suitable UV protection.
