Your Questions answered – Plasma Pen Godalming
How long do the results last for ?
Depending on the area the improvements can last for up to 2 years and treatments can be repeated . The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen by the 8th week as the skin has had time to go through a full regenerative cycle. Depending of the laxity of the skin some clients may requite more than one treatment to gain the best results – however secondary treatments can not be carried out for 8 weeks .
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments required will vary according to the condition being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. If repeat treatments are desired clients must wait 8 weeks before retreating.

Day of treatment
On the treatment day, arrive with no make-up on the treatment area. Anti- Histamine medication may prevent the area treated from swelling, taken 30 mins prior to the treatment and for up to 3 days after your treatment.
Once your consultation is complete numbing cream will be applied to the area. The procedure will begin when the area is numb. During the treatment you will feel slight heat in the area, in general this is not too uncomfortable . Procedures times vary from 30 mins – 120 mins depending on the the size of the treatment area.
After the treatment Plasma Pen Godalming
Immediately after treatment the area will be red and mildly swollen with small scabs and discolouration. The area will feel hot and taut – it is similar to the feeling of excessive sun exposure ( sun burn ). This will last for up to 5 / 6 hours. After the procedure it is highly likely that the area will swell – this is part of the healing process, this can last for up to 5 days.
The healing process takes 3 – 7 days and during this time the scabbing and swelling will resolve. You will be able to see improvements in the treated area immediately. These improvements continue for up to 8 weeks. Whilst there is a period of downtime after the treatment – this is far less than the time needed for recuperation after surgery
You will be given an aftercare sheet, it is important that you follow these instructions carefully. This will ensure that your skin heals optimally.
