Description of SIX Aesthetix Plasma Wave Treatments:
After thoroughly cleansing the skin and removal of all make-up, a sanitising spray is applied over the area to be treated to completely sterilise the area. The area to be treated is then numbed with a 10% Lidocaine Cream. Numbing time should be anything from 10 – 30 minutes, depending on the pain threshold of the client doing the treatment. During the numbing process, your skin expert will perform a calming hand and arm massage whilst explaining the procedure in full and explaining what products are to be used during the treatment and aftercare.
Using the SIX Aesthetix Plasma Wave, patterns are created on the skin with plasma to target the specific areas which need to be lifted or tightened. Excess carbon residue is then removed, followed by an O2 Serum from SIX Sensational Skincare to instantly calm the area. Vitamin C Moisturising Cream is applied to the rest of the face to enhance soothing and healing around the treatment area.
Once the full area is treated, the skin will be very red and inflamed, a completely natural response with the skin feeling sunburnt and sensitive. The final steps to the treatment, are a light application of moisturiser and the Broad Spectrum Sun Protection SPF50+ taking care to apply with very light tapping movements and not rubbing over the skin to avoid any sensitivity.
