There is discomfort however a topical numbing cream is applied 25 minutes before treatment so most clients are able to tolerate the pain.
There are little brown marks called carbon crusts which are visible for up to 7 days after treatment. They may itch and it is imperative to apply a post treatment cream and not itch the skin! Aside from that, mild swelling and redness may occur for up to 2 weeks, and after 6 weeks the new skin is visible with final results.
This is determined at your consultation. This technique does not over-tighten the skin and some troublesome areas may require 2-3 treatments for fantastic results, although many people are very happy with just 1 treatment.
Results typically last 2-4 years although if you care for your skin and eat well, drink water, etc, results can be longer than this. It depends on your age and lifestyle, but 2-4 years is average.
Not at all. This is a very low risk procedure. Minimal side effects and no injectable anesthesia nor cutting into the skin. The plasma pen is designed to shut off immediately if it touches the skin (the technique never allows full contact with the skin, it hovers just a few millimeters above the skin).
However, you must age 18 or older to receive treatment and certain medical conditions are contraindicated to receive this therapy.
Treatment lasts around 1.5-3 hours depending on areas being treated, but the first 45 minutes is the numbing cream taking effect.
