Frequently Asked Questions
Is the PlasmaMD Treatment Painful?
Typically, a topical compounded numbing cream is recommended to be used prior to any minimally-invasive plasma treatment. Numbing takes about 20-25 minutes for the face and patients can expect minimal discomfort and often describe the treatment as mildly tingly and warm sensations.
How long does the actual treatment take?
The total treatment time varies based on size and quantity of areas being treated. On average, the treatment is about 45-60 minutes including the application of a topical numbing cream.
What can I expect from the post-treatment experience?
PlasmaMD ARC Energy visibly gets to work on the treated areas immediately, you’ll notice the “carbon crusts” begin to appear as soon as the treatment is over. Because of this, you can expect minimal social downtime, approximately 3-7 days. Your provider will share exact post-treatment protocol based on your skin and size/quantity of areas treated.
What is the downtime?
Our patients inspired us to coin the term “the plasma perspective,” which means that for a non-surgical treatment with impressive results, the minimal social downtime (3-7 days) is worth it! Following the post-treatment protocol given to you by your provider is a key factor in optimizing your results and minimizing downtime.
When can I wear makeup/resume my normal skincare routine?
In general, once the carbon crusts flake off completely, you’ll be able to resume your makeup application. Follow the personalized post-treatment protocol from your provider.
When will I see results?
Although results are often noticeable once the initial healing process ends, your results will continue to develop. The goal of Plasma Energy is to promote the development of your own collagen and elastin which can create additional improvements in your results the weeks and months following your treatment.
How long does the results last?
Results vary by patient. Many patients and providers report that PlasmaMD and Plasma+ plasma energy devices deliver results for an average of up to 3 years.
Can the PlasmaMD treat all skin types?
PlasmaMD can treat light to dark skin types. Ask your provider for additional information regarding treatments available for your skin type and areas of concern.
