FAQ

What is Plasma IQ?

The Plasma IQ is a type of plasma pen. It’s an FDA approved, handheld device that uses plasma, an ionized gas, to create a series of precise micro injuries that stimulates a natural healing response in the skin’s fibroblast cells, boosting their production of collagen and elastin (the protein fibers that make skin smooth, firm, and elastic).

This non-invasive treatment rejuvenates the skin by stimulating long-term firming, tightening and smoothing effects.

How Does Plasma IQ Fibroblast Therapy Work?

As the device is brought close to the skin, it ionizes nitrogen gas particles in the air to create a plasma arc that looks like a spark.

This arc causes micro injuries called “sublimation” on the epidermis (the skin’s surface layer). The energy also penetrates to the deeper dermal layer, which contains the fibroblasts (the cells that produce collagen and elastin).

This creates immediate skin tightening in the treated area, while the surrounding area is not affected, reducing downtime and improving the healing process.

Over the next few months, the results continue to improve as stimulated fibroblast cells create new collagen and elastin.

Is there any downtime?

Expect red, tender skin in the treated area for a few days after treatment. This treatment creates tiny brown carbon crusts, or scabs, that slough off over the following week. Complete recovery time is typically around 7 days.

When will I see results?

You’ll begin to see results after the recovery period, typically around 1 week, with results continuing to improve and reaching full effect at around 3 months. For the absolute best outcome, we recommend a series of 3.

How long will results last?

Results from Plasma IQ Fibroblast Therapy are permanent!

Does it hurt?

Topical numbing cream is applied for treatments to keep you comfortable. We can also provide nitrous oxide, an analgesic sometimes called happy gas, upon request.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects include redness, swelling, tenderness and scabbing. Hyper or hypopigmentation is possible on some skin types.

Can I get a Plasma IQ treatment if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

Plasma IQ is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
