Frequently Asked Questions for PlasmaLift
How is the PlasmaLift treatment undertaken?
A topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the desired treatment area.
The spark of the PlasmaLift causes an effect in the skin,leading to collagen induction/production and the subsequent tighening/lifting/rejuvenating effect. As a result of the electric voltage, a cascade of physiological processes occur which result in the cell membranes tightening.When the majority of cells in the treatment area tighten up, it is then visible to the naked eye.
Are there any side effects from PlasmaLift?
Treatments can cause an instant effect on your clients and may include redness and
swelling of the area treated for up to 2-3 days. Side effects vary
from client to client. The healing process will include crusting (which
should be left to fall away naturally) over the course of about a week.
Treatments can sometimes lead to more prolonged redness and swelling, while the
skin recovers, this is more likely when the eye lids or areas close to
the eye are treated. It can take up to 7 to 10 days to fully recover for
Can I wear makeup?
Makeup can be applied as cover where needed but should not be applied for
24hrs after the treatment. The results are instant and improve over the
next 2-4 weeks.
How painful is a PlasmaLift Treatment?
The pain during a PlasmaLift treatment should be minimised with the use of
a local anaesthetic cream. The healing process can cause some mild
discomfort but over-the-counter pain relief and a cold compress can be taken to help.
How many sessions are required?
Each client will respond differently to PlasmalLift, but generally one to three sessions are needed. Most people will respond effectively after one session and will be able to see the effect immediately.
Clients can expect a continued improvement in their results over time as
their body responds to the treatment and builds more collagen along
with improving elastin prooduction.
