Plasma IQ™ in Charlotte, NC

Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin are the most common reasons why people look older. Men and women have discovered the benefits of Plasma IQ™ to look younger without surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon, HKB Renaissance, and his staff of anti-aging experts recommend Plasma IQ™, a minimally-invasive, non-surgical treatment for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord, and surrounding areas of North Carolina.

What is Plasma IQ™?

Plasma IQ™ is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that helps with fine lines, sagging, and acne scars. It works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These two substances occur naturally in the skin, but levels gradually decline as you get older. Collagen provides a support structure for your skin, and elastin makes it more resilient.

Benefits of Plasma IQ™

Plasma IQ™ is a minimally-invasive treatment that rejuvenates and tightens your skin to reduce common signs of aging. There is little to now downtime, and it gives your skin a healthy, young glow.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Plasma IQ™?

The ideal candidate for our Plasma IQ™ treatment is someone who has a mild to moderate amount of skin laxity that causes an aged appearance. We recommend Plasma IQ™ to help with:

  • Sagging in the upper and lower eyelids, including bags
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Sagging brow area
  • Glabella creases
  • Sagging jowls
  • Lines on the neck

What Do I Need to Do Before a Plasma IQ™ Treatment?

The first step for your Plasma IQ™ treatment is to meet with one of our skilled professionals for a consultation. Although it’s great if they have done this, they can still get treated if they haven’t been applying sunscreen for that long. It’s most important for the sunscreen application after the treatment.  Avoid sunlight, tanning beds, and artificial tanning products. These make your skin more sensitive and may interfere with the outcomes of the treatment.

How Long Does It Take to Perform Plasma IQ™?

Our nurse injector, Tonya, performs the Plasma IQ™ treatment, and the treatment takes as little as 30 minutes. Larger areas may take more time. Tonya applies a topical or local injectable anesthesia to numb the skin and help you relax. Next, the handheld Plasma IQ™ device is used to deliver a focused, controlled plasma energy into the skin tissues. The plasma energy creates micro-channels in your skin. Your body responds by making new collagen fibers to renew and restore your complexion.

What to Expect After Plasma IQ™

Recovery from Plasma IQ™ takes just a few days. During the first few days, you may notice small scabs in the treatment area. These fall off the skin within five to seven days. Collagen fibers start to develop almost right away, and you can see full results after about three months.

Will I Have Scars After a Plasma IQ™ Treatment?

Plasma IQ™ does not cause scars. In fact, the treatment is very effective for correcting certain types of scars, such as those that are caused by acne.

When Will I See Results?

Full results take up to three months. This is the average time for your body to develop a noticeable amount of collagen in the skin. The results may last for one year or longer, based on how quickly your body breaks down the new collagen.

How Much Does Plasma IQ™ Cost in Charlotte?

Plasma IQ™ is an elective, cosmetic treatment, so it is not covered by medical insurance. We offer several convenient payment options, including cash, checks, and credit cards. Financing is available through CareCredit®.
