So, you've decided to go the all natural route to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and loose skin! Congratulations! The way you prepare for this treatment, as well as your after care and how well you care for your body all play into how your results will turn out. Here is a general rule of thumb to prepare for your procedure...
Microneedling may be suggested to enhance your results. One to two sessions are recommended for younger skin and more may be needed for more mature skin. We will discuss this during your consultation.
Do not have any other skin treatments done in the area to be treated at least four weeks prior to having PlasmaLift done. This includes Botox, fillers, chemical peels, IPL or other laser treatments, microneedling, PRP (Vampire Facials), and microdermabrasion.
Avoid the use of topical agents that may increase skin sensitivity: self tanners, retinoids, topical antibiotics, exfoliants, acids that may be drying or irritating to the skin 5-7 days prior. This includes alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA), beta hydroxyl acids (BHA), exfoliating masks, salicylic acids, retinols, hydroquinone, and benzoyl peroxide acne products.
If you have had any surgeries in the area to be treated, you must wait at least eight months post op OR have a doctor's note of approval.
Make sure to wear a good sunscreen on the area to be treated two to four weeks prior to your treatment to prevent any sun exposure. You cannot have PlasmaLift performed if you are sunburned or dark-skinned. We recommend 50 SPF.
If you don't already, start taking Vitamin C one to two weeks before treatment and continue afterwards until you have healed. This aids in the healing process. For even better healing, purchase InflammEnz and begin taking one week before treatment and continue after treatment for at least two weeks. (always check with your doctor if you are on other medications or have allergies)
Stretch marks must be healed before they can be worked on. They cannot be red or pink.
Make sure your skin is clean and free of makeup and moisturizers when you arrive.
If you have a history of cold sores, make sure to take your prescription or over-the-counter prevention at least one week prior and post treatment.
If you have a tendency to get cold, please bring a blanket with you.
It is recommended to not wear contact lenses if we are treating the eye area. Contacts may be put in after treatment.
I absolutely love kids, but due to state laws, minors are not allowed in the salon.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
