Plasma IQ is a minimally invasive, ablative technology that uses thermal energy by radio frequency micro-currents to create a controlled skin surface micro-injuries and subsequently to rejuvenate and tighten skin and reduce the signs of aging. Plasma IQ is FDA-cleared to be used in the removal and destruction of skin lesions and the coagulation of tissue.

Microbeams of plasma provide focused energy treatment to help reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, and the removal of unwanted skin lesions for a refreshed and renewed appearance. Plasma IQ increases the skin’s natural glow.

This is a remarkable tightening technique that requires ZERO surgery. The results of this minimally invasive lift technique will be usually seen in 4-8 weeks after treatment, and the skin will continue to tighten afterwards. There may be more than one treatment necessary in some cases. This procedure is done with topical anesthesia with very minimal pain.

Before embarking on any treatments, AK Care recommends to have a one to one consult with Dr. AK or our aesthetician. During this session skin and facial assessment will be done. Mutual decision is made as to what treatments can be done. As you all may know, medical and cosmetic skin care is overlooked in lots of people.

Home regimen remedies and professional treatments are routinely needed based on your skin type, colour, ageing and expectation. We ensure that all our patient stay happy and satisfied in their skin.
