Plasma Treatment

Plasma skin tightening is a pioneering treatment technology that provides a non-surgical solution for the tightening and lifting of loose or wrinkled skin.

Tiny pulses of plasmatic lightning produced by the probe used during the treatment, cause the surrounding area of skin to contract.

Plasma skin tightening treatments are hugely popular as a non-surgical solution that avoids having to cut away excess skin with invasive cosmetic surgery.

It can also be used on any area of the body to tighten and firm the skin.

Plasma Benefits

The most popular area clients choose to have plasma treatment are the eyelids which is called 'non-surgical blepharoplasty'. There are not many procedures that can be done on this delicate area other than surgery so opting for plasma is a minimally invasive option. Any area of the face or body that you wish to have the skin tightened is ideal for this treatment.

Plasma Results

Treatment times for the procedure are as little as 30 minutes with results being seen immediately and improving within the recovery time. These results can last years!

You can expect to see the full results after around 12 weeks.

Plasma Recovery Time & Comfort Level

5 - 10 days scabs/dots/carbon crusts
1 - 3 weeks pink healing skin
1 - 3 months for results (vast improvements immediately)
Make-up cannot be worn whilst the skin has scabs/dots/carbon crusts.
An aftercare kit is provided to care for your skin and speed up the healing process.
Numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment to make it more comfortable. The area will feel hot and can swell a little afterwards, you will be advised on how to manage this with aftercare products provided.

Is Plasma Safe?

Plasma fibroblasting is safe if done by a qualified, experienced practitioner and you follow all of the pre and post advice given. You have to be strict with yourself not to pick any of the carbon crusts or there is a risk of scarring/pitting of the skin. All of your concerns and questions will be addressed during the consultation.


All Plasma machines are not the same. Unfortunately there are many untrained operators performing these treatments with sub standard equipment. This can result in unwanted results such as pitting, scarring and worsening of the skin.

The scary thing to know is that there are many cheap copy-cat machines and pens out there which are literally burning the skin. Many YouTube videos and damming reviews where the poor unsuspecting client has had the treatment done without realising it is not authentic are floating around creating a bad representation of this fabulous approach to non-surgical skin tightening.

The genuine Plasma or 'Fibroblasting' treatment as it is also known, does not degrade the skin or burn it. The actual term is 'sublimation' which is where the moisture is temporarily evaporated out causing an instant contraction and collagen enhancement over time.


Small carbon crusts are formed (not scabs - although that's what it looks like) which take around 5 - 10 days to drop off. A care kit is provided for you to look after the skin appropriately which helps speed up the healing and keeps the area sterile.


Always do your research before allowing a practitioner to perform any aesthetic treatment, make sure they are qualified and have experience. If you look around the salon/clinic and you see poor hygeine or get a feeling that your questions are not being answered to your satisfaction go with your gut and do not proceed.

Plasma performed at SugarPod is of the highest standard, the equipment is 100% British made, is fully compliant with a CE mark as a cosmetic device and passes ISO standards for medical devices.

"FABULOUS EXPERIENCE! I have been a client of Su’s for 14years and have witnessed both her personal and professional development at first hand. Su obviously loves her work. She carries out extensive research into all the services she offers. Her facials include radio frequency face lifting. You come away feeling amazing! I have also had microneedling and plasma skin tightening. The plasma treatment does involve some ‘down time’ but Su is completely up front about this and offers superb aftercare. In short I could not live without her! As well as being an amazing therapist Su is a lovely,calm individual who makes you feel totally relaxes and at ease. Carry on your fabulous work Su!
