Frequently Asked Questions
What is involved with the treatment?
Your practitioner will apply topical anaesthetic to the skin’s surface for 30 mins prior to the treatment, the cream will be removed and the treatment using a small, hand help pen shaped device will apply the treatment. A 60 min appointment is allocated to allow you to relax and receive your after care advice prior to leaving the clinic.
How long will it be before I see results?
An immediate tightening will be seen with the plasma pen and dermal fillers. Once healing has taken place you will see an improvement in skin condition and tone.
Collagen production and skin tightening gets progressively better over 8-24 weeks and continues to improve up to a year later.
How long does it last?
Once collagen is formed, the natural ageing process of breaking down the collagen will then take place. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors can contribute to the collagen breakdown such as UV exposure and smoking. However, depending on the amount of sagging skin, sometimes it may require more than a single session.
What are the side effects and risks involved?
Tenderness, redness and swelling are common side effects and are to be expected following the treatment. As the skin starts to heal, itching may occur. After care gel that is included in the price of the treatment, should be used to alleviate the side effects. Other side effects are not limited to, but may include slight redness for a few weeks after the treatment, with a risk of scarring, infection and hyperpigmentation (darker skin) or hypopigmentation (lighter skin), being rare but possible.
Are there any specific aftercare tips?
You will be required to stay out of direct sun light during the healing process. Whilst the scabs are still present you won’t be able to get the areas wet such as having a shower, steam room, swimming or sweating from exercising.
What are the contraindications to having the treatment?
Reasons you may not be suitable for the treatment are due to the following. In which case, we would ask for a specialist’s letter stating that they are happy for you to proceed with the treatment, where applicable:
- Metal plates or pins
- Severe circulatory deficiencies inc. ischemic tissue, thrombosis, severe uncontrolled blood pressure
- Severe Cardiovascular conditions
- Current or recent haemorrhage
- Malignancy and chemotherapy in the past 3 years.
We need to be cautious with certain illnesses, our nurse will confirm your full medical history prior to commencing any treatments.
