Will I Need Touch Ups With the Plasma Skin Tightening?
(How long does it last? Long term results? How many procedures until desired results are reached?)
These procedures actually remove the skin in the direct vicinity of the treated area so the effects should last as long as they would with an invasive surgery! Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, we are not able to stop the aging process so the results are not entirely permanent and will only last as long as it takes your body to “re-age” in the treated area. Smoking, alcohol consumption and prolonged sun exposure can also cause the results to not last as long. Procedures that are to remove volume of skin usually last longer than those to resurface the skin (EX: Eyelid or tummy lifts will normally last longer than muscle related wrinkle reductions like the 11’s and other forehead lines.) Positive effects can last for years depending on the area that was treated! A good skincare routine and healthy eating habits will also help prolong the results. For muscle related wrinkles, pairing this procedure with Botox or Fillers will help prolong the results tremendously. (How soon can I have Botox or Fillers done after this procedure?)
Positive effects of the treatment will be noticeable almost immediately and will continue to tighten and lift for the following 8-12 weeks. For most, one procedure can yield great results. If the area has a large amount of excess skin 2 or 3 procedures may be required for maximum results. For wrinkles in an area of repetitive motion this procedure may need to be done every 6-12 months depending on if it’s being paired with Botox and/or Fillers.
