After local or topical anaesthetic has been introduced to the treatment area, the device is applied.
The client will experience some heat from the spark created, but it is very tolerable. This spark or plasma arc creates a response in the skin, leading to collagen induction/production and the subsequent rejuvenating and lifting effect.
As a result of the electric voltage, a cascade of physiological processes occur which result in the cell membranes tightening. When most cells in the treatment area tighten up, it is visible to the naked eye straight away. It is like erasing wrinkles in front of your eyes. One to two sessions only are usually needed. Most people will respond effectively after one session and will be able to see the effect immediately.
You can expect to look younger and fresher within a very short time, but still over time your skin will respond by naturally building more collagen and increasing elastin and the results will continue to increase over a period of 3 months.
Anaesthesia Topical anaesthetic
Treatment time – from 20 minutes
Mild swelling for approximately two to four days post-treatment, that can be significant enough to warrant social downtime. Light crustations / discoloration may be present for 3-5 days. This can be covered by the recommended make up after 24 hours.
There is minimal discomfort afterwards, but it isn’t significant. It is like mild sunburn skin. Contraction takes 1-6 weeks post-treatment and you will continue to see skin tightening and improvement as time passes.
