The Accor plasma pen device is now available at SarahLouise Aesthetics, providing patients with an alternative to invasive surgical cosmetic procedures. Accor works through the non ablative process of sublimation. When the device is applied above the skin an electrical arc is created, creating plasma through the ionisation of atmospheric gas. This action results in contraction and tightening of skin fibres reducing the skin surface area. Areas that can be treated include sageness of the upper and lower eyelids, any new or old scars, lines and wrinkles, smokers lines, moles, skin tags, saggy skin around the neck and face, tattoos, and active acne and acne scarring.
How is Plasma Sublimation different from surgery?
This device does not ablate the skin, therefore no cutting or stitching is performed; resulting in minimal downtime, reduced risks of post surgical infection and usually patients can return to their normal daily activities straight after the treatment.
How is the procedure done?
A full assessment will be carried out by our practitioners ensuring you are a correct candidate for the procedure. From there a strong topical numbing agent will be applied to skin where the treatment will occur. This reduces the pain felt by the patient and makes it a more enjoyable experience.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the area treated. There will always be 60 minutes allocated to the appointment time to ensure a complete medical history dn consultation has taken place, as well as enough time for the numbing agent to take effect.
What is the downtime, side effects and risks?
There is no real downtime meaning you can go about your daily duties as normal, however there is small brown dots which are carbon crusts which will fall off after 5-7 days following the treatment. Once the healing process has taken place new tighter skin will then be exposed. It is advised to wear SPF and moisturiser following the treatment to ensure optimal results.
How long does it last?
Effectively skin is removed during the procedure, therefore the results should last as long as a surgical procedure would. Like all cosmetic procedures, results are not entirely permanent as the ageing process continues to happen following the procedure. The requirement for a subsequent treatment will be based on age, skin integrity, depth of scarring, ethnicity and environmental factors.
What is the cost?
The cost of plasma sublimation is far less than cosmetic surgery, the prices differ for different areas treated. Exact prices can be given at the consultation. A full upper eyelid course is £450, where as minor skin tag removals are £150. Please click here for our price Brochure May 2019 HR
