Until redness and discomfort have completely resolved, avoid all of the following:
Taking these medications does not exclude you from plasma treatments; however, extra precautions are applicable in these cases
Day 1: Immediately and shortly after treatment, there may be some swelling and fluid retention, especially around the eyes. Swelling is not a bad thing and is a natural part of the healing process, so don’t try to “treat” it with anything other than fanning yourself. The eye area is the most prone to swelling, so do expect it and allow yourself a full 24-48 hours to let this subside. Re-apply Panthenol as needed for the first 2-4 days.
Day 1 – 4: Especially in the eye area, swelling peaks upon waking, first thing in the morning. Over the course of the first 1-3 days, it is normal for the swelling to migrate down into the under-eye area. This will subside generally through day 3 and be mostly normal by day 4.
Day 5: Beginning around day 5 the dots will begin to shed naturally, on their own, and this will continue possibly up to about day 10. LET THIS HAPPEN NATURALLY, DO NOTHING TO ABRADE THEM IN ANY WAY. Use of Powder mineral makeup is permitted and encouraged from Day 5.
Day 10: By day 10 your carbon dots should be gone, and you can resume your body care, physical activity and makeup use as normal.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE TREATED AREA PROTECTED FROM SUN EXPOSURE.
So that means avoiding direct exposure, covering the area or sunblock for at least 8 weeks.
Week 2 – 4: Treated areas slightly pink and could be slightly tender to the touch.
Weeks 5 – 8: Continual improvement both in sensation, texture, look and feel. By week 8 the treated area will have completely blended with the untreated areas.
Month 3-6: Reschedule appointment for next treatment
