How Long Do Results Last?

Following the course of three treatments, the effect should last for as long as a comparable surgical treatment. However, the effects cannot be regarded as permanent, as it does not halt, nor prevent the ageing process.

You can expect the positive results to last several years if you avoid lifestyle factors that contribute to skin ageing and damage. You should avoid smoking, excess alcohol consumption and prolonged sun exposure to get the full benefit from your Plasma treatment.

Side Effects and Risks from Plasma treatment

At Laserase Bolton the Plasma treatment is performed by medical staff only. Treatment is said to be relatively uncomfortable, depending on your tolerance to pain. The delivery of the plasma produces a stinging feeling. An anaesthetic cream is used to numb the area before treatment starts, to reduce such sensations.

Immediately after treatment, the affected area may feel tender, with slight burning and tingling sensations, but this should only last for a few hours. Later you should expect continued tenderness, redness, swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area, for several days, to a week. Swelling is more common in the area around the eyes.

The points of sublimation are about 1mm in diameter, showing as tiny brown crusts or scabs. These will remain for at least a week before dropping off. It is important that the crusts are left to heal without any interference, to prevent scarring, infection or pigmentation abnormalities

You must not scratch or pick the area during healing.

The treated area should be kept dry and clean, and protected with a UVA/UVB sunscreen, until fully healed, to prevent infection.

"I had my first treatment 7 days ago and was pleasantly surprised at how little discomfort I felt. I was nervous when the first needle went in but soon found that this felt no more than a slight prick. The taking of the blood was a quick and easy procedure and as Saria the nurse talked me through the whole process I soon felt relaxed and at ease. After the treatment my skin was slightly swollen and a purplish red but this went down within 24 hours. After 7 days I feel there is some minor improvement to the lines around my eyes but I am fully aware that the course of treatment needs to be completed and then a further 2 -3 months go by before I am likely to see the full benefits. I can’t wait for my second treatment to get nearer to my goal of reducing my lines and wrinkles especially around my eyes."
