Plasma IQ is one of the latest in non-surgical skin tightening technology, effectively causing the removal of targeted cells to achieve exceptional results. A safe, non-invasive, and non-surgical treatment, Plasma IQ generates plasma energy to cause the shrinking of targeted skin cells without damaging those surrounding the treatment area. The treatment provides localised, targeted treatments with maximum precision and minimal down time.
Dr Bawa uses Plasma IQ to permanently shrink and remove problematic areas of skin that may be sagging, like the skin around the eyes or facial folds. The sublimation that occurs results in a permanent tightening of the skin because the excess cells have been removed. This treatment provides the effects of a minor surgical procedure without the pain and investment of surgery.

Your Consultation: The most important part of your patient journey is the initial consultation, as it allows us to really understand what your concerns are. Using this insight, we strive to address your concerns and exceed your expectations by helping you to achieve fantastic results with Plasma IQ.
What is included in the initial consultation?
- A comprehensive assessment of your requirements and concerns.
- Thorough medical assessment.
- Clinical photos to assess before and after treatment (always confidential).
- Bespoke treatment plan including detailed explanation on how we will achieve your goal.
- Dedicated time in which we will answer any questions you may have honestly and clearly.
Pre-Treatment: We advise refraining from consuming alcohol for 24 hours prior to treatment and ensure you have the adequate amount of downtime available to you to ensure safe recovery. We’d advise up to 7 days to allow scabs to heal and remain undisturbed.
Appointment: We’ll welcome you to the clinic and your consent will be taken for the treatment. Numbing cream will be applied prior to the procedure for your comfort. Any questions are welcome throughout and we’ll keep checking that you’re comfortable during your treatment with the Plasma IQ. When the treatment is complete, we’ll arrange a follow-up appointment, of which is extremely important to ensure that your results are developing as expected. We may also recommend a follow-up appointment should we think it would benefit you.
Time taken: Our skin tightening treatment takes 30-45 minutes.
Downtime: Swelling can be expected in the target area, especially if it is around the eyes, and the treatment area may feel sensitive for several days. If you experience a lot of swelling, you may need 48 hours of downtime before it subsides. Otherwise, there is no reason why you couldn’t return to work the next day. Dr Bawa recommends avoiding sunbathing or sun beds for at least six weeks due to the risk of hyperpigmentation.
After-care: It’s important not to pick at or scratch the area while it heals. The treated area commonly forms scabs, but this is entirely normal and it’s important not to interfere with these as they will drop off of their own accord. This will prevent scarring and unwanted pigmentation changes. Keep the area dry and clean and protected with a broad-spectrum sun cream consisting of SPF30+ until it is fully healed to protect the new and healing skin. If you have any concerns or the area becomes bright red, hot, and tender, then contact Dr Bawa for assistance.
How long will it take to work: You may see your optimum results after just one treatment, but these will take around a week to fully heal. We often recommend a course of treatment sessions but of course Dr Bawa will discuss this at your consultation.
You could see your results for several years, given you maintain your skin’s health and lessen harmful lifestyle factors. Results vary from patient to patient.
*Individual results may vary.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Plasma IQ work?
This revolutionary technology creates an arc of plasma energy between the skin and the tip of the handheld Plasma IQ device. This energy causes sublimation of the targeted cells, causing them to permanently shrink and disintegrate. This tightens the skin and also stimulates the production of collagen during the body’s natural healing processes, promoting firmer skin in the long-term.
Is it painful?
This treatment is known to be a little uncomfortable because it uses a concentrated form of plasma energy. The sensation is likened to stinging, but a topical anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area before we begin.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after treatment, the treated area may feel tender with slight tingling and burning sensations, though this should only last a few hours. You may experience tenderness, redness, swelling, and mild discomfort in the area for several days, though these are completely normal and to be expected. Scabs will form in the area too, and it’s important these are left to fall off naturally, otherwise you could risk scarring and infection.
Is this treatment permanent?
The results of your treatments are permanent in that they permanently shrink and disintegrate the treated skin cells. This treatment can’t prevent the development of loose skin, wrinkles, or other skin lesions.
When will I see my results?
You could see a noticeable difference after just one treatment session. However, your optimum results may be reached after a full treatment course of 2-4 sessions with the Plasma IQ. This depends on your target area, your concerns, and your desired results. We can provide a more accurate estimation at your initial consultation following a facial analysis.
