For our plasma treatments we choose industry leading technology with Plexr Plus. Internationally patented and listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) this device is developed by GMV, an Italian based company at the forefront of aesthetic and medical technology development with over 10 years of experience in plasma technology.
Prepping the skin prior to treatment is an absolute must. Using a non prescription retinol, ideal retinols are 0.3 & 0.5, along with a tyrosinase inhibitor (pigment blocker).
If you are not using either of the above please get in contact with someone at CSH to get you on both prep serums. These must be used for 2-4 weeks minimum along with a 50+ broad spectrum Spf prior to treatment.
WHAT IS PLASMA TECHNOLOGY?
Plasma treatments utilise a small electrical charge to deliver energy to the superficial skin cells, transitioning the targeted area from a solid to a gas state without damaging surrounding tissue, a process known as sublimation. Plasma treatments initiate a wound healing response in the skin, stimulating Fibroblast cells to produce more collagen and repair the skin.
The results are amazing and clearly visible after just one treatment. Best results are usually visible from 14 days and 45-60 days being final result from that treatment session.
Treatments usually last for 2-3 years, however can be repeated as needed as we naturally age
Downtime 7-10 Days
Treatment Time 15 - 45 minutes (+30 minutes numbing cream prep)
PLASMA SKIN REJUVENATION / AGE MANAGEMENT / SKIN TIGHTENING
During the natural aging process less collagen is produced, elastin fibers wear out and the dermal layer thins, resulting in wrinkling, sagging skin. Plasma Skin Rejuvenation treatments with the Plexr Plus are designed to stimulate cells to produce more collagen and repair the skin, resulting in plumper younger looking skin. Collagen continues to generate for 4-6 weeks after treatment, resulting in lifted and smoother skin. Treatments with the Plexr Plus are designed to tighten the skin on the face body and neck, lift drooping eyelids and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Results are dramatic, with many clients achieving their desired result after a single treatment.
NON SURGICAL BLEPHAROPLASTY / NON SURGICAL EYELIFT
Plasma non-surgical eyelift is used to tighten and improve the appearance of the area surrounding the eye, including upper eyelids and lower eyelids. Treatments target loose, sagging skin, drooping eyelids, expression lines and “crows feet”, undereye bags and puffiness.
SKIN LESION REMOVAL
Skin lesion removal with Plexr Plus provides effective removal on almost all areas including the face, décolletage, arms, armpits, legs, back, chest and neck. With shorter healing time and minimal scarring a range of skin lesions including moles, skin tags, senile warts and cherry angiomas can be safely removed.
SCAR REDUCTION / SCAR CORRECTION
Scar Reduction and Scar Correction Treatments with Plexr Plus are able to target and breakdown scar tissue through the plasma sublimation process, effectively cauterising scar tissue and prompting the body to generate new cells to repair the skin and reduce the appearance of the scar.

Scarring correction treatments are fast and effective with many clients achieve their intended result after 1 treatment, although depending on the depth and nature of the scars some clients may require up to 3 treatments to reach their best possible scarring correction outcome.

WHAT AFTER EFFECTS CAN BE EXPECTED?
These cosmetic treatments are very safe, on rare occasions, there have been reports of hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to the local anaesthetic, wound healing problems, skin infections, scarring, swelling, redness, tingling, the occurrence of herpes simplex (cold sore) and skin depigmentation (whitening). Immediately after the procedure, the treated area will be quite red and mildly swollen. This can last from 1-3 days.
The small carbon dots will dry to become small crusts. These crusts must not under any circumstances be picked or scratched off, they must be left to fall off on their own which can take anything from 5-14 days.
These dots can be covered with a mineral foundation or mineral concealer. For 2 weeks you will be healing so if you have any special occasions it is best to wait until after or do the treatment 1-2 months before.
When the dots are visible and once the crusts have fallen off it is imperative that you use SPF 50 sunscreen. Absolutely no sun on the area without protection for 3 months.
