In order to perform the rejuvenation treatment, the aesthetic specialist will make use of a small instrument that has been specially designed for non-surgical medical and cosmetic procedures. The instrument is fitted with a thin metal probe and fine foam tip, and is held like a pen.
Throughout the procedure, the instrument is held within 1mm of the skin but never actually touches it. The instrument emits a micro-current, and this current produces a small electrical arc (called a plasma arc) which tightens the treated tissue. The electrical arc allows the instrument to raise the temperature of the excess skin in a precise and controlled manner. Once heated, the skin is subjected to a superficial and controlled abrasion before cooling down and contracting.
By working extremely precisely and quickly on only the superficial tissues, the doctor is able to maintain total control of the treatment area and the depth of action in order to guarantee optimal results. Since no skin is actually removed, this procedure can be performed without anaesthetic injections or scalpels, which – unlike the surgical approach – means you stay scar-free.
