12 Nov PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT
A plasma spark is created when the probe goes close to the skin, the heat enters the skin and triggers off our fibroblast cells they then travel up to the top of the skin multiply and create collagen. Skin instantly tightens and contracts so we can see some instant results but the process takes 6-8 weeks to finish, that’s when maximum results can be seen.
Side effects of the plasma Pen treatment?
Following treatment, tiny dark brown/black spots may appear or there may be an appearance more typical of a burn. Swelling is common and often lasts several days and can be quite significant around the eyes. The area will often be red and warm immediately after the procedure and can be quite tender for a few days.
What about downtime?
One of the major advantages of plasma is that it offers a much less invasive/expensive alternative to surgery as well as the time it takes to carry out. This does not mean there is no downtime, but by comparison, it is minimal. You can experience significant swelling in the area treated, particularly in the eye area this diminishes over a 2-5 day period. The tiny plasma flash causes ‘crusts’ to form on the skin giving the distinctive dotting effect. These on average are gone between 5-7 days. They may also be covered over to reduce their visibility. These are cosmetic issues only, technically there is no real downtime if these visual effects are of no concern to you.
