Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening - Before and After Instructions

Before Your Treatment

  • We recommend you avoid sun-tanning, spray-tanning, tanning injections and sunbeds for 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, we recommend using SPF40 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 a Pre-Treatment product using a Tyrosinase Inhibitor as this can help prevent the enzyme “Tyrosinase” from misfiring or over-oxidizing the Tyrosine and thus helps ensure there is no overproduction of pigment in the skin. Tyrosinase Inhibitors are not just useful for those who suffer from hyperpigmentation but for all clients – even those with healthy, even skin.
  • Avoid any other type of procedures for 3-4 weeks 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 being performed by your technician at the time you want it.
  • Discontinue any use of topical Retin-A products a minimum of 4 days prior to treatment.
After Treatment
  • You may not look your absolute best during the initial healing process (usually 3 to 7 days)
  • We recommend NOT exercising straight after a treatment because any heat, steam or sweat could add to the inflammation that’s already present. Ideally you want to avoid excessive sweating for 5-7 days during the healing process.
  • We recommend the only product you should use after treatment and during the 5-7 day healing process is either Plaxpot or Regenrative Growth Factor  serums 2x per day (morning and evening).
  • We recommend you do not wear makeup in the area treated during the 5-7 day healing process because the application and/or removal of makeup could prematurely disrupt the scabs before they are ready to flake off.
  • There may be some mild to moderate swelling to the area(s) treated, especially around the eyes and within the periorbital region then moderate to excessive swelling is expected and common.
  • Swelling and inflammation for 1 to 5 days post-treatment is normal. If swelling lasts beyond the 5 days, contact your treatment provider.
  • We recommend that you do not apply cold packs or ice packs during the swelling period. Icing will diminish the outcome and inhibit the inflammation process that we want to happen naturally. Applying cold or ice packs on the skin could interfere with the mechanism of action performed by the device and the skin’s natural heat and healing process to achieve the desired result. Swelling is a minor inconvenience to achieve the desired outcome.
  • If possible, we recommend you take a high dose of Vitamin C supplements over the course of the healing process as this will help give your immune system a big boost. In turn this helps you to repair and also helps avoid hyperpigmentation.
  • You may experience a “stinging” sensation in the treated area(s) immediately after treatment. This is normal and is simply the heat exiting the skin. It generally only lasts for about an hour or so.
  • Facial areas that has been treated must NOT be covered with bandages, occlusive dressing or any type of make-up, mascara, creams or any other product until the area has fully healed (outside of specific products we recommend, and which should be available from your technician). Areas of the body may need to be covered depending on the treatment and the area.
  • If you have received facial treatment, we recommend you sleep on your back with your head elevated to minimize swelling. If you have received treatment to your eye area then it is important you sleep slightly elevated for up to 7 days as this can greatly reduce swelling.
  • 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 of vital importance in protecting you from any kind of potential infection so please avoid any activities where you could expose yourself to contaminants.
