Will the Vellus Hairs Grow Back Thicker & Darker?
No matter where it grows on your body, shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker or darker. Many people think that shaving your legs or underarms causes thicker hair growth. This is false. It’s biologically impossible for hair to grow back thicker because of shaving. Shaving simply creates a blunt tip on the hairs, which many people interpret as greater thickness. When you dermaplane, you are removing very, very fine hair called vellus hair. This hair is so thin and soft that removing it with a dermaplaning tool will have little to no impact on how it looks when it grows back. After removing the vellus hair, your skin will instantly feel and look smoother and brighter. It will take about a week for the hair to grow back, at which time you can dermaplane again.

How does Plasma Pen work?Plasma Lifting is a relatively new innovation in the aesthetic industry. During the procedure a tiny plasma flash, also referred as an electrical arc, is being discharged from the tip of the Fibroblast Plasma Pen. The Plasma Pen itself never touches the skin, however the plasma flash creates a tiny dot upon contact. There are no cuts, and no blood. This innovative technology uses sublimation process, turning solid directly to gas to tighten skin tissue. Targeted tissues sublimate, causing no damage to surrounding areas or deeper skin layers. Further points are applied creating a symmetrical grid over the treatment area. Effects are noticeable right away. Full results become visible after 2-4 weeks.
How many treatments are needed?The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 8 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results, although it is uncommon to require more than four treatments. Appointments must be spaced out by 8 weeks.
What can Plasma Lift be used for?Plasma Lift is able to treat a number of imperfections without any actual cutting of the skin. It can be used for: Eyelid Tightening, including under eyes and excess upper eyelid skin. Skin imperfections, including skin tags and sunspots. Improvement in the appearance of acne scars Tightening loose stomach skin after pregnancy. Lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Jowls and Neck Tightening. Knee Caps and Under Arms
What are the benefits?Skin tightening and texture improvements are the biggest benefits. Most people will respond effectively after one session and will be able to see the effect immediately. Those with deeper wrinkles may benefit from further treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. You can expect to look younger and fresher, while over time your skin will respond by naturally building more collagen and increasing elastin production.
How long will the results last for?As Plasma Lift is more than a simple tightening treatment (skin volume is actually reduced), the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further ageing, but the positive results should last years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after 8 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.
Are there any contraindications?Clients should be in good health at the time of the appointment, with no preexisting health conditions. If the client displays signs of cold or flu the treatment should be rescheduled. Clients skin should not be inflamed in the area we are treating prior to procedure. Clients prone to keloid scars are not ideal candidates. Clients with diabetes, healing disorders or lymphatic draining issues should not undergo treatment. Clients with a sunburn/sun tan should postpone treatment. Clients who have a history of Hyperpigmentation are not ideal candidates. Clients must not display any tanning at the time of the treatment. Clients must not display Herpes Simplex Virus (Cold sores/Fever blisters). You will need to reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing an outbreak. If you have experienced Herpes Simplex Virus (Cold sores/Fever blisters) in the past you must see your Medical Doctor and obtain a prescription for Valtrex and begin taking it 3 days before treatment and for 4 days following treatment. (This applies for treatments surrounding the lip area only) Not for clients with pace makers. Not for clients who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Clients with Eyelash extensions receiving upper or lower eyelid treatment must have lashes removed prior to treatment and reapplied after 8 weeks. This treatment is only recommended on light-medium skin tones . Anyone with a darker complexions is at risk for Hyperpigmentation.
What are the side effects?Plasma Lift has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature when done by a fully certified technician. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment. There will be small carbon crusts (little brown dots) in the treated area that will last 7-10 days before naturally lifting, revealing new pink skin beneath. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your therapist.
What will happen on the day of my treatment?On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area. A numbing agent is applied. When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the fibroblast tip. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable but not painful. Treatment time is usually between 10-40 minutes, depending on the size of the area. Immediately after treatment the area may be red and mildly swollen with small carbon crusts (spots). You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days. The carbon crusts will lift within 5 -12 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results gradually improve over the course of the following 8 weeks. Following the treatment you will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results. In the week following treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) an exfoliating wash or cleanser should not be used. Instead opt for a pH balanced soap (dove), and avoid rubbing the area.
What should I do and not do before my treatment?Avoid any kind of tanning (Spray tanning, tanning injections, sun tanning and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker skinned. Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Lift, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, as this may prevent your treatment being performed by your technician at the time you want it. No facial acids (Retin A, salicylic, glycolic) 14 days before or 21 days after Plasma Lift No Botox or fillers 21 days before or after Plasma Pen No Micro needling/PRP 21 days before or after Plasma Pen No laser or peels (depending on intensity of peel) for 90 days before or after Plasma Pen Surgical procedures like face lifts you must wait at least 9 months postop/before Plasma Pen.
What should I do and not do after my treatment?Before Your Treatment Avoid any kind of tanning (Spray tanning, tanning injections, sun tanning and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker skinned. Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Lift, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, as this may prevent your treatment being performed by your technician at the time you want it. No facial acids (Retin A, salicylic, glycolic) 14 days before or 21 days after Plasma Lift No Botox or fillers 21 days before or after Plasma Pen No Micro needling/PRP 21 days before or after Plasma Pen No laser or peels (depending on intensity of peel) for 90 days before or after Plasma Pen Surgical procedures like face lifts you must wait at least 9 months postop/before Plasma Pen. Immediately Following Treatment You may experience a “stinging” sensation in the treated area(s) immediately after treatment. This is normal and it generally only lasts for about an hour. If the treated area is swollen, you may apply ice packs covered with a clean cloth. Do NOT apply ice directly onto the skin, as this can cause damage to the tissue. Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, ibuprofen or steroids if possible. If you are receiving a Plasma Lift treatment anywhere on your face or neck, we recommend you sleep on your back with your head elevated to reduce swelling. DO NOT cleanse the treated area until the following day Do NOT exercise 48 hours after treatment or expose yourself to any heat, steam or sweat because this can intensify the inflammation that’s already present. Your therapist will provide you with after care products and instructions. You must follow the provided aftercare protocol to expedite the healing process and avoid complications. The area that has been treated must NOT be covered with occlusive dressing or any type of sunblock, make-up, mascara, creams or any other products until the area has fully healed. Many ingredients in skin care products and cosmetics can irritate skin and cause allergic reactions. Ultimately this will slow you’re your healing process and possibly impede desired results It is highly unlikely you will ever get an infection from a Plasma Lift treatment, as the wound we cause is not open. However, the first 12 hours post-treatment is vital in protecting you from any potential infection, so please avoid any activities where you could expose your-self to contaminants. Keeping hands off of anything that comes in contact with the treatment area You may return to work the following day. However, you will not look your absolute best during the initial healing process (approximately 7 days) Expect redness, swelling and inflammation for the first 1 to 5 days post-treatment. This is normal but will usually be of a very minor nature. Following Days After Your Treatment It is normal for the area that has been treated to be red/pink, swollen and feel tight and dry. Occasional weeping is normal and will settle Tiny crusts will quickly form on the treated area. These may be visible for up to about a week. Do NOT pick crusts off as this will de-lay the healing process and could cause hyperpigmentation and scarring The area(s) treated may be cleansed daily with room temperature water and your fingers. Avoid using washcloths or any other washing devices. You are only removing excess oil and do not need to thoroughly cleanse the treated skin. Do NOT be tempted to rub, brush or exfoliate the area in any way to aid in the removal of the crusts. Pat dry with a clean tissue Do NOT stand with your face under a hot shower for the first 3-4 days. This could increase swelling. Try to avoid shower gels or hair products running on to your face as this could cause irritation and inflammation. Rinse thoroughly with tepid water if products do come into contact with the area(s) treated and gently pat dry Avoid swimming or chlorinated water as it can increase irritation. Keep scabs/crusts moist by applying provided aftercare three times a day – but only in small amounts, do not soak the area. Men should avoid shaving the treated area until it is fully healed (around 7 days). If you have had treatment around your eyes, you should avoid wearing contact lenses for 72 hours after your treatment. Once the scabs have fallen off (approximately 7 days), your skin may be a little pink. You may begin to apply your normal foundation/make-up/sunblock but avoid using skincare products containing glycolic/salicylic/retinoic/AHA/scrubs/Clarisonic or any other active exfoliating ingredients/devices for at least 21 days, as this will cause irritation. ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUP UNTIL SCABS HAVE FALLEN OFF. Avoid sun exposure. Once the scabs have fallen off, you must wear a physical sunblock (zinc & titanium) and a hat while your skin is in the healing stages (pink in colour) and you should continue to do so for at least the next 12 weeks to avoid hyperpigmentation. Do NOT sunbath/sun tanning beds for 10–12-week post procedure. Do NOT have any other facial treatments in the same treatment area while your skin is healing (12 weeks). Do NOT wax treatment area for at least 21 days, if not longer. If you are receiving Plasma Pen treatment anywhere around the eyes, I would wait the full 12 weeks. It will be ok to tweeze or thread any unwanted hairs after scabs have fallen off the area. Other Important Aftercare Advice & Top Tips Avoid smoking and alcohol. Eat a whole food diet and avoid excess sugar to maximize results. On top of the immediate rejuvenation, lifting and tightening effects, you will likely experience from Plasma Lift, it takes 8 to 12 weeks for the full effects of your treatment to be seen. If additional treatments are required, it will be necessary to wait until the skin completely heals (12 weeks).
