PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING PRE-CARE
If you are displaying signs of cold or flu the treatment should be rescheduled.
Contact lenses must be removed when performing treatment on the upper eyelids.
Skin should not be inflamed in the area we are treating prior to procedure.
If you have a sunburn/suntan treatment should be postponed for up to 8 weeks or until tan/burn signs disappear.
Discontinue use of any AHA and/or Retinol skincare products for 4 weeks prior to treatment.
Eyelash extensions receiving upper or lower eyelid treatment MUST have lashes removed prior to treatment and reapplied after 8 weeks.
Discontinue use of any cleaners, creams, and serums containing acids such as salicylic, glycolic, and lactic 4 weeks prior to having any facial Plasma Skin Tightening procedures performed.
PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING POST-CARE
Keep the area clean to avoid infections until the scabs have formed and exfoliated on their own. Follow the aftercare instructions exactly as written to ensure the best possible healed outcome.
Ice the treated area (use a clean tea towel to cover the ice pack) alternating 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off, for up to one hour for the first 2 days.
Keep the treated area clean using a mild unscented glycerin or Dove unscented soap twice a day (morning and night) Gently splash the area with cool water and very gently clean with soap and rinse very thoroughly. Use very mild gentle pressure to clean skin.
Gently apply your aftercare product (using only clean hands) to the treated area as needed to relieve pain/itching each day until your scabs fall off on their own.
IMPORTANT!!! Allow the scabs to come off on their own. This will ensure the best possible healed result and avoid scarring and infection.
Be patient with the process and allow yourself time to rest and heal.
Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds – Once the scabbing/peeling process is complete, always apply a broad spectrum sunblock to the treated area for a minimum of 3 months after your last treatment. The skin is still healing and can easily become damaged by the UV rays causing hyperpigmentation.
Do not pick the scabs. Let them fall off by themselves or you risk scarring
Do not apply any make-up (even mineral) for the first 4 days or until the scabbing or peeling is complete (about 7-10 days).
Do not apply any plasters (liquid bandaid) on the treated areas as doing so can delay the natural healing process.
Do not work out, swim, get in a hot tub or steam bath (avoid sweating and soaking scabs).
