How Many Treatments Are Required?
The number of treatments required with vary according to the condition 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. Appointments must be spaced out by a minimum of 8 weeks to ensure there proper healing time.
What are the side effects and risks?
Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-12 days following treatment.
There will be small brown marks that have the appearance of scabbing, which are carbon crusts. These carbon crusts will flake away, revealing new pink skin beneath. Some swelling will be seen (especially in cases of eyelid treatment), but it is likely to only last 3-5 days at most. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. This swelling will likely move down the face into the lower eyelid area as well as this is where the lymphatic drains. Aftercare instructions are given to the client to follow closely. It is imperative that these instructions are carried out to ensure there are no serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation.
Infection is another risk the client needs to be aware of. Aftercare instructions provided by your technician will go over ways to avoid any risk.
Is there anyone who should not use Plasma Skin Tightening?
As like majority of cosmetic procedures, Plasma Skin Tightening should not be used on women who are pregnant, or breast feeding.
This treatment is also not suitable for darker skin types, this is because there is a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment. A full consultation is required prior to booking any appointments. Your technician will be able to tell you if you are a suitable candidate for treatment at that time.
