WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR DAY OF TREATMENT?

You don't want to wear makeup or use any moisturizers on your day of treatment. Just come in with clean skin. We suggest taking an antihistamine one hour before your appointment and continue to take antihistamines for two to three days after your appointment. This will reduce swelling in the treatment area.

A numbing agent is place on the treatment area and left to take effect for 30 to 45 minutes. When the area is sufficiently numb the treatment will begin. During the treatment you will feel some heat and minor irritation. Treatment time will last from 45 minutes and up to several hours depending on the size of the treatment area.

During your first appointment you will be given aftercare instructions. Following these instructions is critical for best results. No exfoliators or harsh cleansers can be used in the week following treatment. Recommendations would be Cetaphil, Dove, Unscented Glycerin, Zinc Oxide for SPF, Vitamin E capsule, Aloe Vera Gel, Colloidal Silver Spray. You should also avoid rubbing or scratching the treated area.
Around the 8th Week you can begin to reintroduce skin cleansers containing AHA.

WHAT DOWNTIME CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY PLASMA PEN TREATMENT?

What you think "looks bad" and/or is "uncomfortable" can be very different from someone else's perception. If you are comparing it to cosmetic surgery, then no, the downtime is minimal. If you are comparing it to a light chemical peel where no one can tell you did anything and you are just a bit flaky everywhere, then no.

  • Redness, swelling and scabbing in the treatment area
  • Average of 8 days downtime on the face and neck areas
  • Average of 10 to 14 days on the body, depending on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment
  • Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 3
  • After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form.
  • Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck).
  • These are simply guidelines for average healing time.

POST-TREATMENT EXPECTATIONS
Final results are visible 6 weeks after treatment. Follow Up treatments may be performed after 6 to 8 weeks depending on your skin's healing. Follow up treatments are often offered at a discount.
