PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING

This plasma charge creates tiny "dots" on the skin which are placed strategically resulting in tissue retraction and tightening that can be seen immediately. The treatment does not cause any damage to the surrounding area

Although PPST is not as invasive as surgery, skin is actually removed so results can last as long as a surgical procedure. As with most procedures, results are not permanent and does not stop the skin from it's natural aging process; skin will continue to age over time.

Results can be seen immediately and the area will continue to improve over time.  Best results can be seen at the eight week mark, when the skin has fully healed.  Depending on the area and the skin required to treat, some clients can benefit from a small touch-up or additional treatment.  Touch ups and additional treatments can be booked after the eight week mark.

It is important to note that Plasma Skin Tightening is not for everyone! Similar to other cosmetic procedures, skin tone, genetics and medical conditions will determine ones eligibility. This procedure will not be performed on any individuals who are pregnant or nursing.  Darker skin tones will not be treated (consultations will be arranged to determine eligibility as there is a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment, particularly if the healing area is disturbed by scratching, scrubbing or picking. 

It is important to note that lifestyle choices can alter and/or shorten the benefits of the treatment such as smoking, alcohol consumption and prolonged sun exposure.

PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING POST TREATMENT

A topical numbing agent will be applied to the treatment area to help ease any discomfort during the session.  "Dots" will be strategically placed with the device to achieve best results.  You may experience some discomfort on the areas being treated.  The session will last approximately one hour depending on the area treated.

Immediately after the treatment, the area may appear red and swollen with slight discoloration as well as tiny "dots" on the treated area.  You may experience a sensation similar to a mild sunburn.  Swelling may increase over the following 2-3 days. Scabbing and discoloration will fade within 5-7 days depending on the individual.  Results will be obvious immediately after treatment and will continue to improve up to the 8-week mark.  You will be provided with a care package and after care instructions.
