What expect after your treatment:


Swelling peaks the day following treatment (especially around the eye area). Swelling usually lasts 1-3 days but can last longer depending on the intensity of the treatment and the healing ability if the patient. You can apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Discomfort, pain and slight discharge can occur and is normal. Scabs will form where the plasma arc was applied. Scabs will fall off between 7-10 days (longer with larger areas such as breasts and stomach). Do not pick the scabs as this can cause scarring and possible infection. By day 4 swelling and pain should start to subside. Once all of the scabs have fallen off, make sure to protect the treated area with SPF daily, This is extremely important as the area will be hypersensitive to sunlight. By week 3-4 you may still see pink/red dots, this is still new skin and will continue to fade as you heal. You are fully healed at 8-12 weeks.

*More than one treatment may be necessary to reach your desired results.
