Plasma Pen, when activated, the machine creates plasma flash which travels from the tool’s tip to treated area. The tool itself never touches the skin however plasma flash creates a tiny dot upon the contact. Further points are applied creating a symmetrical grid over the treatment area. This in effect causes tightening of skin fibers. It is non-invasive treatment, no cuts to the skin or stitching is necessary and is completely bloodless and without unnecessary damages to surrounding tissues.
STAGES OF HEALING
Day 1: Try to lay propped up with pillows. Some discomfort is normal. The swelling will likely be worse in the mornings and lessen towards the evening. If you have had eye treatments, you may find it difficult to open your eyes the following morning, however it will subside throughout the day. It will feel like a bad sunburn.
Day 2: The swelling typically peaks by day 2. Swelling can also spread to the under eye area, DON’T PANIC, this is perfectly normal. The upper and lower eye are all connected, therefore the fluids from the upper eye will drain to the lower eye area. This too shall pass.
Day 3: You may notice an improvement in the swelling and the “dots” will start to crust/scab over. The scabs must not be picked, allow them to fall off on their own. Your level of discomfort will have subsided a bit. For those who experienced the under eye swelling, this will still be present.
Day 4: Some mild residual swelling may still be present on the upper eyelids. Discomfort should diminish.
Day 5: Swelling should be complete and scabs may still be present. Use Aquaphor to protect if scabs are accidentally getting rubbed off prematurely.
Days 6 - 10: You are patiently waiting for the remaining scabs to fall off on their own. It is normal for the new skin under the scabs to be pink or red and peeling as the healing process continues.
Weeks 2 - 6: After scabs fall off, you may have tender, peeling or textured skin for a few days or weeks. Once your skin is no longer tender, you may safety use a non-physical, gentle, enzyme exfoliant to slough off peeling skin. After scabs fall off, you may also use healing serums, lotions and make up. Each day, your skin will progressively return to its’ original coloration and texture.
Remember it will take 6-8 weeks for healing process to cycle through completely and for skin to be refreshed and for healing to complete. (You may continue to see results for up to 6 months.)
Depending on laxity and desired results, you may want to have multiple treatments on the same area. Areas may be treated every 3 months to let the collagen heal and turn over.

Face dots shed approximately 4 - 10 days following treatment (average client begins to shed dots on day 5, 6 or 7). Dots on the body often take longer than the face, potentially around 2 weeks. The fresh new skin that is revealed is often pink for in between a few days to the entire 3 months (rare), fading daily until returning to original coloration.
After the dots shed, the skin may be temporarily tender and peeling or even slightly textured. This is normal and will get smoother each day, return to its’ normal coloration and continue to tighten over the 3 month healing period. As skin returns to its’ original texture and color, the skin may appear healed, but that is just the beginning as the skin underneath does its work. It takes 4 weeks for collagen and elastin production to begin.
It will take 6 weeks for healing process to cycle through completely and for skin to be refreshed and for healing to complete. The most tightening and lifting happens in weeks 6 -8.

Ice and antihistamine will minimize swelling. You will be following a dry healing method which means you will do your best to keep treatment area dry until dots shed.
