How Should You Prepare for Treatment?
Avoid any kind of tanning (spray tanning, tanning injections, sun tanning, and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker-skinned. You may even wish to consider using a natural Tyrosinase Inhibitor to helps ensure there is no overproduction of pigment in the skin aka hyperpigmentation.
Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Pen, such as laser treatments, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, as this may prevent your treatment from being performed by your technician at the time you want it. No facial acids (Retin A, salicylic, glycolic) 14 days before or 21 days after Plasma Pen. No Botox or fillers 21 days before or after Plasma Pen. No Micro-needling/PRP 21 days before or after Plasma Pen. No laser or peels (depending on the intensity of peel) for 90 days before or after Plasma Pen. For surgical procedures like facelifts, you must wait at least 9 months postop/before Plasma Pen.
How is Treatment Performed?
- In preparation, your face will be thoroughly cleaned
- Your skin will be numbed with local anesthetics.
- Micro charges of plasma energy are applied to the skin in a noncontact way via a wand. The skin in the area will be heated.
- Sublimation of the tissue in very superficial levels will occur eliminating excess tissue and reducing or in some cases even eliminating wrinkles and saggy tissue.
- Treatment time will last from 45 minutes and up to several hours depending on the size of the treatment area.
- After laser resurfacing is completed, your technician will apply a specialized dressing to protect the treated tissues.
What Will Recovery Involve?
How Long Will the Results Last?
The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction, and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 8 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results, although it is uncommon to require more than two treatments.
