Aftercare Instructions for Post Plasma Pen Treatment

Immediately Following Treatment

Continue to gently cool the skin.
This is the first step to reducing the redness that may occur. You should expect to see some redness for the next two to three days.
24 hours After Treatment
Use PlasmaPen cleansing wipes to gently dab over the skin or alternatively boiled cooled water to gently cleanse the skin, do not saturate the skin, keep it as dry as possible.
