PlasmaPen Treatments Aftercare

by Plasma Pen UKMay 15,2023Plasma Pen™ Advice, Plasma Pen™ Guide


With PlasmaPen, and with the expertise of a professional practitioner, it’s possible to achieve impressive results. This could include reducing the appearance of acne scarring, lifting brows and forehead tightening, correcting sun damage and repairing damage. It’s also possible to carry out eye lifts, neck lifts and face lifts with PlasmaPen. However, to ensure that you get the best results, it’s important to take care of your skin in the days and weeks after treatment.

Though you can continue with a lot of your daily activities, things such as avoiding sun exposure and keeping the area dry are key. Below, we have listed some of the key parts of PlasmaPen treatment aftercare.

Keep the Area Dry

You should keep the treated area dry for at least 24 hours after PlasmaPen treatment, which means not washing your face and taking care in the shower. Getting the skin wet could impact the healing process and irritate the skin.

Don’t Pick or Scratch

During the healing process, scabs are likely to form on the treated area, and you might be tempted to pick or scratch them. This could be avoided, as removing the scabs before they are ready to come off could prevent the skin from healing correctly. Instead, wait for scabs to fall off on their own.

Keep Out of Sunlight

It’s important to avoid exposing the treated area to sunlight for at least two weeks after PlasmaPen treatment. Sunlight can cause harmful and irreparable damage to skin, and this risk is even greater after cosmetic treatment that leaves new, fresh skin exposed. It’s also a good idea to keep the treated area away from heat.

What Do You Put on Skin After PlasmaPen?

You should not apply anything to the skin directly after PlasmaPen treatment, as this is when the skin is at its most delicate. After the initial 24 hour healing period, you can apply ointment or moisturiser to the treated area. This will ensure that the skin stays hydrated as it heals.

When Can I Wear Makeup After PlasmaPen?

You should avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 to 48 hours after PlasmaPen treatment, to ensure that the area has adequate time to heal. Wearing makeup before this time could prevent the skin from healing properly, and it might cause irritations.

As you can see, there are certain things that you need to do after PlasmaPen treatment. Paying close attention to aftercare, and following your practitioners guidance, will ensure that you get your desired results. Though wearing makeup and going in the sun might seem like ‘normal’ things to do, you need to give your skin time to heal and rejuvenate.
