You Could Achieve Glowing Skin with Plasma Skin Tightening Treatment

By: Jeanine Christian-La Touche


While aging is certainly a privilege, that doesn’t mean you have to love the cosmetic changes that go along with it. One of the most prominent side effects of aging is the development of lines, wrinkles, and dull skin, which often makes men and women look prematurely older than they actually are. Once these symptoms escape the control of over-the-counter products and topical agents, it may be time to consider your options for professional skin rejuvenation. At La Touche Élite Aesthetics in Myrtle Beach, SC, board-certified registered nurse anesthetist Jeanine Christian-La Touche performs a wide range of anti-aging skin rejuvenation treatments to help men and women look and feel their best at every age. Here, we’ll take a closer look at one of the most popular professional skin treatments available today – plasma skin tightening.

What does plasma skin tightening do?

Plasma skin tightening is a revolutionary treatment designed to combat lines, wrinkles, volume loss, and skin laxity from the inside out, minimizing damage to the outer layers of skin and giving you results that continue to improve over time. Some of the most common skin concerns that can be improved with plasma skin tightening include:

  • Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Drooping jowls
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Wrinkles under the eyes
  • Sagging eyelids
  • Dull, deflated look
  • Crepey skin

How does plasma skin tightening work?

During plasma skin tightening treatment, radiofrequency (RF) energy-produced plasma is administered to the skin’s surface, which works to stimulate the body’s natural healing and regenerative processes. This triggers the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which encourage firmer, more youthful-looking skin to develop over time. Additionally, the existing collagen fibers will contract for a more immediate lifting effect.

Does plasma skin tightening hurt?

To minimize any discomfort associated with plasma skin tightening, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the skin prior to treatment. Most patients tolerate treatment well. Following a plasma skin tightening treatment, patients can expect some level of irritation, swelling, redness, and stinging. These side effects are typically fairly mild and resolve within about a week, depending on the strength of the treatment performed. The skin may also peel and flake away, and it is important to avoid picking or scratching the skin during this time.

Where can plasma skin tightening be used?

Virtually any area of the body displaying mild skin laxity, fine lines, or wrinkles can be treated with plasma skin tightening. Areas of pronounced skin laxity, stretched skin, excess skin, or hanging skin are not typically considered appropriate for plasma skin tightening treatment. Some of the most common treatment areas for plasma skin tightening include:

  • Eyelids
  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Decolletage/chest
  • Hands
  • Stomach

How long does plasma skin tightening last?

With results that can last for up to two years or longer, plasma skin tightening offers patients a long-lasting solution for enhancing their complexion. With proper skin care and complementary skin treatments between plasma skin tightening sessions, you can keep your skin consistently looking vibrant, healthy, and youthful for years to come.
