BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT
Avoid any kind of tanning (Spray tanning, tanning injections, sun tanning and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker skinned. You may even wish to consider using a natural Tyrosinase Inhibitor to helps ensure there is no overproduction of pigment in the skin aka hyperpigmentation.
Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Pen, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, as this may prevent your treatment being performed by your technician at the time you want it.
No facial acids (Retin A, salicylic, glycolic) 14 days before or 21 days after Plasma Pen.
No fillers 21 days before or after Plasma Pen.
No Micro needling/PRP 21 days before or after Plasma Pen.
No laser or peels (depending on intensity of peel) for 90 days before or after Plasma Pen.
Surgical procedures like face lifts you must wait at least 9 months postop/before Plasma Pen.
