Who Should Avoid Plasma Skin Tightening?
"We always let the client fill in a health declaration in advance to clarify whether the client is approved to go through with the treatment without any risks of bad healing," she said. (Editor's note: this is similar to the paperwork you fill out in the doctor's office here in the U.S. ) "There are some red flags to look out for: If you know that your skin in general heals badly when you get wounds, then plasma treatment is not recommended for you. Also, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding at the moment, you should avoid the treatment. If you are unsure whether you can get this treatment or not, you should always reach out to your provider to make sure.
"When it comes to different skin types, we follow the Fitzpatrick scale to measure. Skin types 1-3 are recommended to do the treatment while skin types 4-6 can result in hyperpigmentation if treated with plasma. Skin types 4-6 have a higher level of melanin production and can therefore react badly to the treatment while healing."
