Plasma IQ Q & A

Plasma IQ at Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics

Plasma IQ is a ground-breaking advancement in aesthetics that uses focused, controlled energy to improve your skin’s appearance. As the first FDA Class II-cleared plasma energy device, it’s a safe, effective means of treating many cosmetic skin concerns. 

How it works

Plasma IQ is a handheld device that delivers microbeams of plasma energy to your skin. As the device is passed over the skin’s surface, it ionizes nitrogen gas particles in the air to create a plasma arc that makes superficial microwounds in the skin. 

As the wounds heal, your skin will be visibly tighter, smoother and firmer. Over the course of several weeks, you’ll continue to see improvements as your skin produces more collagen and elastin. This increase is a result of the healing process.

Plasma IQ’s precise controls allow your provider to target the treatment area without heating the surrounding skin. This device also has high and low settings to enable your provider to customize your results even further. This procedure is so effective that Plasma IQ is sometimes referred to as a nonsurgical facelift.

What Can You Treat with Plasma IQ?

Plasma IQ treats an extensive range of cosmetic skin concerns. It’s effective on many of the most common signs of aging, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Hooded eyelids
  • Lines around the nose (bunny lines)
  • Loose skin on the jawline or upper neck
  • Smile lines around the mouth
  • Spider veins
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Wrinkles

Additionally, Plasma IQ can treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Broken capillaries
  • Moles
  • Skin lesions
  • Skin tags

What to Expect During Your Plasma IQ Treatment 

At your Plasma IQ appointment, one of our board-certified medical providers will first prepare the area to be treated with a numbing cream. Then, they’ll use the Plasma IQ handheld device to make a series of closely spaced tiny dots over the entire area.

Plasma IQ isn’t painful; many people describe the sensation as a mild static electricity shock. 

The procedure will take approximately 30 minutes, although this depends on the size and number of areas being treated.

After a Plasma IQ session, your skin will immediately appear tighter and firmer. You’ll also have tiny brown dots (carbon crusts) on the treated area that will fall off in 7–10 days. In the first few days post treatment, you may experience swelling, redness, tenderness and scabbing that will resolve on its own. 

During the healing period, it is important to wear a high-SPF sunscreen to protect your skin and to avoid picking at the crusts to allow it to heal properly.

Your Plasma IQ results will be visible after 3 weeks, but your skin will continue to firm and heal over several more weeks as your skin produces more collagen.

The number of sessions you’ll need depends on the concerns you’re treating. Most of our patients undergo 1–3 treatments scheduled 6 weeks apart.

Best of all, Plasma IQ results are long-lasting. You’ll enjoy more youthful-looking skin for 3–5 years, and in the case of lesion removal, results may be permanent.

Complementary Treatments 

Make the most of your time here and schedule another treatment along with your Plasma IQ session! Depending on your skin’s unique needs, you may benefit from one of the following services:

  • Botox: An established wrinkle-fighting injectable that targets forehead lines and crow’s feet
  • Dysport: An injectable similar to Botox, Dysport smooths lines between the eyebrows
  • Restylane: This family of hyaluronic acid fillers adds volume to the cheeks or lips, and fills out depressions below the eyes.

Alternatives to Plasma IQ

If the Plasma IQ technology isn’t suitable for your skin, consider our laser services, which provide similar results through a different mechanism. Not interested in downtime? Try one of our noninvasive skin treatments, the gentlest rejuvenation options we offer.
