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 . Because of the instant retraction of the skin improvements can be seen almost instantly, however to see the full results you must wait up to 8 weeks allowing collagen regeneration to take place. Some areas may require repeat treatments – however it is important that clients wait at least 8 weeks before carrying out the procedure again.
How many treatments are required?

Day of treatmentOn the treatment day
Arrive with no make-up on the treatment area. We recommend using anti-histamine medication approx 30 mins before your apt – this will help to prevent excessive swelling. Plasma Pen Horsham
To make the treatment more comfortable a numbing ointment is applied to the area. When the area is numb, the session begins. A feeling of heat and slight irritation may be felt in the area being treated. Treatment time is usually between 10-120 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
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. Swelling is a normal part of the treatment process – the extent will vary from client to client, this swelling will subside in approx 5 days and in many cases sooner. Plasma Pen Horsham
The crustations/discoloration should resolve within 3 -7 days depending on the individual and area treated. You will be able to see improvements in the treated area immediately. These improvements continue for up to 8 weeks. After the procedure there is a short period of downtime – although far shorter than the time needed after surgery. Plasma Pen Horsham
