Basic principle of skin tightening by using Electrofulguration (Plasma).

Young, elastic skin depends on the amount of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin. These proteins help your skin resist temporary changes such as stretching, folding, or wrinkling. As we age, our bodies produce less of these structural proteins, making our skin more prone to show signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

A mild superficial controlled burn by using AC voltaic arcs, DC voltaic arcs or Lasers induces a skin tightening effect which helps the skin restore more of its natural elasticity. This occurs because a localised excitation, stimulates the skin’s regeneration response, resulting in firmer, tighter skin between the wrinkles and hence the reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Similar results are also possible by using other  skin rejuvenation methods, like AHAs (alpha hydroxy acid) based cosmetic peels, however  the use of voltaic arc or cosmetic lasers is generally more selective because it can be applied exactly where required, therefore inducing the skin tightening exactly were your client needs it, with a higher degree of precision. We refer to this type of skin tightening as “localised skin tightening” or “targeted skin tightening

Generally Localised Skin Tightening  can be accomplished by using:

  • Lasers devices,
  • Electrical arcing devices.

The basic principle used by all these types of devices is the same, which is the targeted delivery of heat into the skin. When this is done the skin tends to respond by generating new collagen which results in tighter and firmer skin.

Methods to accomplish Skin tightening using electrical arcing.

Skin tightening using electrical arcing (or also referred to as Plasma) can be accomplished in two main ways:

  • Using the spot mode or spot operation.
  • Using the spray operation.

Both methods deliver the required heat into the skin needed to cause a very localised skin tightening. This localised skin tightening in turn reduces the appearance of saggy skin and fine lines.  In particular the fine lines are improved by the pulling effect of the skin tightening effect applied between the lines.

Spot mode or spot operation.

The spot mode is the preferred method to apply skin tightening by using electrical arcing, on various parts of the face. It is the preferred method because it delivers consistent and repeatable results and it is very easy to learn especially for beginners.

The spot mode is used extensively for:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


In the picture on the left we can see how the intention is to feather out the treatment as we move away from the tight wrinkles. In other words the spots are applied in a more tight fashion where the wrinkles are deeper, closer to the eye. As we move away from the eye then the distancing of the spots is increased.

You will also note that, in case of fine lines, the wrinkles tend to disappear while are you applying the spots. This is not a permanent effect. This is a normal immediate reaction of the skin to the dehydration effects of the superficial carbonisation caused by the electrical arcing (also referred to as plasma).

The spot mode is carried out in the following way:

  • by applying short bursts between the wrinkles and not inside the wrinkles’ folds. Applying the spots inside the wrinkles could worsen the appearance of fine lines instead of improving them.
  • the bursts must be placed randomly, without forming lines or patterns of any type. Applying the spots randomly ensures the most uniform skin pulling effects.

In some cases this is also the natural way to increase the treatment intensity while using the spot mode. As we will see later on, one of the ways to increase the treatment intensity is decreasing the distance between the spots. In the following video we will see how a medium/high intensity treatment is carried out by applying the random spots very tightly together. After the treatment is completed, the spots are placed so tightly together that it seems as if the area was treated in spray mode.

In some other cases some experienced users prefer to apply short spraying busts between the wrinkles instead of applying several random spots as we have seen above.

When using electrical arcing for the first time for “localised skin tightening” in  general it is advisable to use the spot operation as it is very easy to learn and leads to consistent results.

Spray mode in skin tightening. 

The spray mode is not normally used for skin tightening, instead it is commonly used for:

  • Tattoo Removal.
  • Permanent Make Up Removal.
  • Moles Removal, inclining Xanthelasma, Seborrheic Keratosis, Syringoma Removal and most of other benign lesions and hypertrophic skin imperfections removed for aesthetic reasons.
  • Skin resurfacing to improve the appearance of hypertrophic scars.

However, after several number of treatments, when the users gain plenty of confidence confidence with the use of electrical arcing for skin tightening, some prefer to move to the spray operation.

In some cases this is also the natural way to increase the treatment intensity while using the spot mode. As we will see later on, one of the ways to increase the treatment intensity is decreasing the distance between the spots. In the following video we will see how a medium/high intensity treatment is carried out by applying the random spots very tightly together.
