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. 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?
How many treatments a client needs very much depends on the area and the condition of the skin and the amount of tightening required. Subsequent treatments must be at least 8 weeks after initial treatments – allowing the area to fully heal.
Side effects and risks Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature. Whilst healing time will vary from client to client in most cases these resolve in 10 days.

About your treatment Plasma Pen Surrey
Please remove all make up before your treatment. We suggest taking an anti-histamine (such as benadryl) 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.
Once your consultation is complete numbing cream will be 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. Procedures times vary from 30 mins – 120 mins depending on the the size of the treatment area. Plasma Pen Surrey
Once your procedure is complete the area is likely to be slightly swollen and will have pin prick scabs . You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 3-5 days.
The healing process takes 3 – 7 days and during this time the scabbing and swelling will resolve. Improvements can be seen as soon a the treatment is complete – however the final results will be seen in 8 weeks. Whilst there is a period of downtime after the treatment – this is far less than the time needed for recuperation after surgery .
After treatment you must follow that post procedure care advice which will be given at the time of your consultation. This will ensure that you achieve optimum results. Plasma Pen Surrey
