As one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments on the market, PlasmaPen delivers impressive results with little to no downtime or recovery period. However, it’s still important to follow some aftercare guidelines in order to ensure optimal results and protect your investment.
Here are some useful tips for PlasmaPen aftercare:
1. Don’t Apply Cosmetic Products to the Treatment Area
It is essential to not apply any cosmetics, lotions, or other products to the treatment area for at least 48 hours after your PlasmaPen session. This will help to avoid any irritation or sensitivity that could occur. In fact, the patient shouldn’t touch the treatment area or get it wet for the first 48 hours. They should only use the supplied healing product given by the PlasmaPen specialist.
2. Stay Out of the Sun
After the PlasmaPen treatment, it is important to stay out of the sun. This will help to avoid any irritation or sensitivity that could occur. The stinging sensation felt by the patient after the treatment is similar to a sunburn. Being exposed to the sun will only aggravate this and irritate the treatment area.
3. Apply Sunscreen Regularly
On the third day of recovery, it’s recommended to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to the treatment area every day for at least one month after the PlasmaPen session. This will help to protect the skin from damage and keep it looking its best.
4. Don’t Take Anti-Inflammatory Medication
It’s important to avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen, for the first two weeks after the PlasmaPen treatment. This can increase the risk of bruising and swelling.
5. Avoid Using Cold Packs
After the treatment, swelling may occur in the targeted area. While this is normal, it’s one of the minor side effects of the PlasmaPen treatment. The patient may be compelled to use an ice pack or something cold to alleviate some of the swelling. However, this is a bad idea as it could actually diminish the outcome. In fact, it could inhibit the inflammation process, which is a natural part of the treatment. It’s better to just bear with the swelling for a few days. It may be a minor inconvenience, but it’s vital to achieve the desired results.
6. Don’t Pick at the Scabs
One of the most important things you can do after your PlasmaPen treatment is to avoid picking at the scabs. It’s normal for scabs to form on the targeted area, but it’s essential that they be left alone. Picking at them could cause them to bleed and could also lead to infection. If the targeted area is too itchy, using a mild moisturiser or lotion should help alleviate some of the itchiness.
7. Avoid Activities that Cause Excessive Perspiration
It’s important to avoid activities that cause excessive perspiration for the first few weeks of recovery. Sweating can irritate the treatment area and could cause the scabs to come off prematurely. Heat, sweat, and steam could actually aggravate the natural inflammation and make it worse.
The Importance of PlasmaPen Aftercare
