DAY OF TREATMENT
On the treatment day, no make-up is worn on the treatment area
*We suggest taking an anti-histamine 60 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.
*A numbing agent is applied and left to take effect for up to 45 minutes.
*When the area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the plasma tip, 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 will be red and mildly swollen with small crustations and discoloration.
*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.
*The crusts /discoloration should resolve within 5 -12 days depending on the individual and area treated.
Results are seen instantly after the treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 8 weeks.
*Essentially there is downtime, but it is considerably less then with surgery.
*Following treatment you will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results.
*The majority of people are safe to drive following their Plasma Skin Tightening procedure as swelling does not set in until later that day.
