Plasma Pen the best way to achieve younger, better looking skin without plastic surgery, what makes Plasma Pen better when there are so many cosmetic treatments to choose from such as dermaplaning, botox, fillers, micro-needling or microdermabrasion?
While most of these are fairly non-invasive, none of them have the lasting results that occur after having a plasma pen treatment, which by the way is 2-3 years.
What's The Procedure Like?
Depending on where you're having the procedure it may vary slightly, but the basic steps will include the following.
Cleaning the skin and applying a topical numbing cream, you will need to wait 25/30 minutes for this to take effect.
Treating the area with the Plasma Pen. The numbing cream will be removed and small arcs will be created by the pen micro-current that will make small scabs-like dots on the skin.
After the treatment a cooling gel will be applied to sooth any tingling or burning sensations (typically feels like sunburn).
Depending on the area treat the procedure typically takes between 30-90 minutes
What Is The Recovery Process?
You can expect small dots to scab over and fall off after about a week, body treatments such as tummy, arms or knees may be a little longer. Everyone heals differently.
Over the following weeks, your skin will appear firmer and tighter as your skin heals. Most people also notice their skin tone and texture has improved remarkably.
Most clients are happy after one treatment, while others may opt for more treatments before they see their desired results.
You Should Avoid Plasma Pen If You
· Are pregnant or breastfeeding
· If you are taking Roaccutane
· Have an infection at the treatment site
· Have an allergy to topical numbing creams
· Have a pacemaker
· Those who have a Fitzpatrick skin type 4, 5 or 6 as you are at a higher risk for hyper-pigmentation
What Are The Side Effects
As with most cosmetic procedures, there are some side effects after a plasma pen treatment and I can’t stress enough how important it is to follow the aftercare advice, if you wish to achieve the optimum results.
Immediately after the plasma pen treatment, your skin may be red and slightly swollen. This is normal and will usually subside around day three. Though you may see a slight redness for up to 14 days as the skin heals.
Carbon crusts form on the skin as the procedure is being performed and you should avoid touching these crusts post procedure. You can expect them to last around one week.
They will naturally lift off the skin as the new skin appears under your treatment area and it’s important not to pick at them during this process.
You will not look your best for a few days, though you will be happy with the results and all without having to have an invasive surgery and very little downtime.
