PRE-TREATMENT ADVICE FOR

Plasma Fibroblast

Like most skin rejuvenation treatments, there may be some side-effects post-treatment and recovery from Plasma Pen. You must follow these important guidelines carefully if you wish to enjoy optimal results and protect your investment in Plasma Pen treatment.

Although for most Plasma Pen treatment is virtually pain-free, your own treatment may be moderately uncomfortable and sensitive depending on where you are being treated – especially eyelid procedures where the skin is at its thinnest – and your own sensitivities and tolerances.

  • Avoid any kind of tanning (Spray tanning, tanning injections, sun tanning, and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker-skinned. You may even wish to consider using a natural Tyrosinase Inhibitor to helps ensure there is no overproduction of pigment in the skin aka hyperpigmentation.

  • Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Pen, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, as this may prevent your treatment from being performed by your technician at the time you want it.

  • No facial acids (Retin A, salicylic, glycolic) 14 days before or 21 days after Plasma Pen.

  • No Botox or fillers 21 days before or after Plasma Pen.

  • No Micro-needling/PRP 21 days before or after Plasma Pen.

  • No laser or peels (depending on the intensity of peel) for 90 days before or after Plasma Pen.

  • For surgical procedures like face lift you must wait at least 9 months postop/before Plasma Pen

THOSE WHO CANNOT HAVE DERMAL FILLER TREATMENTS INCLUDE:

  • Those under the age of 18

  • Active infection near the site of injection (i.e. cold sores)

  • Darker skin tones (African American, African, Latin, Native American, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian ancestry and people of mixed ethnicities) may not good candidates for Plasma Pen

We will ask you a number of medical questions before confirming your treatment to ensure you are eligible for treatment

Aftercare
  • You may experience a “stinging” sensation in the treated area(s) immediately after treatment. This is normal and it generally only lasts for about an hour

  • If the treated area is swollen, you may apply ice packs covered with a clean cloth. Do NOT apply ice directly onto the skin, as this can cause damage to the tissue. Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, or steroids if possible.

  • If you are receiving a Plasma Pen treatment anywhere on your face or neck, we recommend you sleep on your back with your head elevated to reduce swelling.

  • Do NOT cleanse the treated area until the following day.

  • Do NOT exercise 48 hours after treatment or expose yourself to any heat, steam or sweat because this can intensify the inflammation that is already present.

  • The area that has been treated must NOT be covered with an occlusive dressing or any type of sunblock, make-up, mascara, creams or any other products until the area has fully healed. Many ingredients in skin care products and cosmetics can irritate skin and cause allergic reactions. Ultimately this will slow you’re your healing process and possibly impede desired results.

  • It is highly unlikely you will ever get an infection from a Plasma Pen treatment, as the wound we cause is not open. However, the first 12 hours post-treatment is vital in protecting you from any potential infection, so please avoid any activities where you could expose yourself to contaminants. Keeping hands off anything that comes in contact with the treatment area.

  • You may return to work the following day. However, you will not look your absolute best during the initial healing process (approximately 7 days).

  • Expect redness, swelling, and inflammation for the first 1 to 5 days post-treatment. This is normal but will usually be of a very minor nature.

  • It is normal for the area that has been treated to be red/pink, swollen and feel tight and dry. Occasional weeping is normal and will settle.

  • Tiny crusts will quickly form on the treated area. These may be visible for up to about a week.

  • Do NOT pick crusts off as this will delay the healing process and could cause hyperpigmentation and scarring.

  • The area(s) treated may be cleansed daily with room temperature water and your fingers. Avoid using washcloths or any other washing devices. You are only removing excess oil and do not need to thoroughly cleanse the treated skin. Do NOT be tempted to rub, brush or exfoliate the area in any way to aid in the removal of the crusts. Pat dry with a clean tissue.

  • Do NOT stand with your face under a hot shower for the first 3-4 days. This could increase swelling. Try to avoid shower gels or hair products running onto your face as this could cause irritation and inflammation. Rinse thoroughly with tepid water if products do come into contact with the area(s) treated and gently pat dry.

  • Avoid swimming or chlorinated water as it can increase irritation.

  • Men should avoid shaving the treated area until it is fully healed (around 7 days).

  • If you have had treatment around your eyes, you should avoid wearing contact lenses for 72

  • Once the scabs have fallen off (approximately 7 days), your skin may be a little pink. You may begin to apply your normal foundation/make-up/sunblock but avoid using skin care products containing glycolic/salicylic/retinoic/AHA/ scrubs/Clarisonic or any other active exfoliating ingredients/devices for at least 21 days, as this will cause irritation. ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUP UNTIL SCABS HAVE FALLEN OFF.

  • Avoid sun exposure. Once the scabs have fallen off, you must wear a physical sunblock (zinc & titanium) and a hat while your skin is in the healing stages (pink in colour) and you should continue to do so for at least the next 12 weeks to avoid hyperpigmentation.

  • Do NOT sunbath/sun tanning beds for 10–12 weeks post procedure.

  • Do NOT have any other facial treatments in the same treatment area while your skin is healing (12 weeks).

  • Do NOT wax the treatment area for at least 21 days, if not longer. If you are receiving Plasma Pen treatment anywhere around the eyes, I would wait the full 12 weeks. It will be ok to tweeze or thread any unwanted hairs after scabs have fallen off the area

Other Recommendations
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol

  • Eat a whole food diet and avoid excess sugar to maximize results.
