Plasma Skin Tightening Aftercare
It is critical to follow all aftercare instructions to prevent complications, scarring and to achieve optimum results. Please read carefully.
Plasma skin tightening is performed with a device that causes gentle skin trauma to the skin creating tiny minuscule scabs in a grid…. As these scabs heal our natural fibroblast cells merge together tightening the skin and responds by generating collagen and elasticity.
It is critical that you allow the scabs to dislodge by themselves as picking will give poor results to the outcome. Scabs will come off after approximately 5-10 days and new skin will be pink.
Apply with a clean cotton bud a rice size of your complimentary healing gel morning and night for 4 weeks
you must continue to apply to assist in the healing of your skin
It is important to keep the area completely dry until the scabs have come off this includes sweating, swimming and dousing your face with water.
After your treatment you will feel tender, your skin warm and the scabs will appear darker and the day progresses the scabs will appear bigger and swell will set in. You may also feel itchy as part of the tightening process it is important that you do not scratch the scabs
Do not apply makeup or any other products other than the healing gel over the area until the scabs have fallen off.
