WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
about Plasma Skin Tightening
ON THE DAY OF TREATMENT...
Do not wear make-up on the treatment area. You can take an anti-histamine 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.
A numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes. When the treatment area numb, the session begins with multiple connections of a Plasma Pen, spaced closely together. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating. Treatment time is usually between 10-40 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
Immediately after treatment the area may be red and mildly swollen with small carbon crusts (spots). You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days.
Following treatment you will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results. In the week following treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) an exfoliating wash or cleanser should NOT be used. Instead opt for a pH balanced soap (dove), and avoid rubbing the area
