What to expect in treatment?

For comfort a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to your skin.  Your treatment will take 15-30 mins, during which you may feel a tingling sensation as the plasma jet is used.

After treatment tiny dark brown spots will be obvious on the treated skin which will be tender. Swelling is common and can be quite pronounced around the eyes and is often worse the following morning. This can last 2-3 days. 

During recovery crust will develop over the tiny spots which typically flake-off in 3-4 days, but can take up to 2 weeks. During this time you should keep the treated area clean, dry and protected from bright sunlight.
