Phi Bright is a new generation of personalised skin treatment solutions
all contain a special complex called Brightenyl
Brightenyl represents a new generation of substances that are activated on the skin through the action of natural bacterial flora.
This complex restores a perfect and even skin tone by blocking the process of melanogenesis at several levels, thus controlling skin darkening and reducing hyperpigmentation.
PhiBright solutions also protects the skin and has a soothing effect, reducing redness.
The active complex of African birch extract, in addition to its antioxidant effect, helps vitamin C to reach fibroblasts cells - the site of collagen synthesis. This serum applied to the surface of the skin and then delivered deeper using a microneedling technique the result is deep nourishment and long-term stimulation of natural regenerative abilities.

PRE TREATMENT ADVICE
PRE TREATMENT ADVICE
PHI ION PLASMA
avoid sun-tanning, spray-tanning, tanning injections and sun beds for 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment.
We recommend using SPF-50 to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment.
This technique is not recommended for skin tones darker than FP4 consult with your technicain prior.
You may even wish to consider a Pre-Treatment product using a Tyrosinase Inhibitor as this can help prevent overproduction of pigment in the skin.
Avoid any other type of procedures for 3-4 weeks on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Pen, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox/fillers, as this may prevent your treatment being performed.
Discontinue any use of topical Retin-A products a minimum of 7 days prior to treatment.
Please attend your appointment free from make-up
Remove contact lenses and any eyelash extensions prior to treatment. we ask you bring some sunglasses to protect the eye after treatment a hat or viser if facial areas are treated
For Plasma Pen.
Immediately Following Your Treatment:
We recommend Dry healing for the first 7 days this means cleaning with water then pat dry, If the area becomes wet while showering, gently blot dry.
Do NOT pick crusts off as this will delay the healing process and could cause scarring. or infection
There may be some mild to moderate swelling to the area(s) treated, especially around the eyes . If swelling lasts beyond the 5 days, contact your treatment provider.
You may experience a “stinging” sensation in the treated area(s) immediately after treatment it can last up to 24 hours after treatment. This is normal and is simply the heat exiting the skin.
After treating areas of the face, we recommend you sleep on your with your head elevated to minimise swelling.
It is highly unlikely you will ever get an infection from a Plasma Pen treatment as the wound we cause is not open. However, the first 12 hours post-treatment is of vital importance in protecting you from any kind of potential infection so please avoid any activities where you could expose yourself to contaminants, meaning going to the gym, public places where you can pick up germs by touching things then touching your skin.
We recommend NOT exercising straight after a treatment because any heat, steam or sweat could add to the inflammation already present. Ideally you want to avoid excessive sweating for 5-7 days during the healing process.
• We recommend you do not wear makeup in the area treated during the 5-7 day healing process because the application and/or removal of makeup could prematurely disrupt the scabs before they are ready to flake off.
In the Following Days After Your Treatment:
After 7 days start using your balm It may also provide relief from possible itching and helps expedite a scar free healing process.
It is normal for the area that has been treated to feel tight and dry. Occasional weeping will settle, tiny crusts will quickly form on the treated area. These may be visible for up to about a week. The crusts/scabs will become darker before the fall off.
Do NOT pick crusts off as this will delay the healing process and could cause scarring.
If washing your hair after treating areas on the face, we advise you do NOT stand with your face under a hot shower or direct water from shower head for the first 7 days. This could increase swelling. Try to avoid shower gels or hair products running on to your face as this could cause irritation. If water does get on the area treated, blot very gently with a clean cloth or towel. Absolutely do NOT use any lotions or creams that are not provided for the next 2 weeks.
ONLY use the products you are sent home with for the next 2 weeks. The area must be kept free of chemicals to help the crusts form and then fall off the skin naturally.
Do NOT rub or abrade the area(s) or use exfoliating products.
This could result in scarring and/or pigmentation.
Shaving in the area treated should be avoided until it is fully healed.
If you have had treatment around your eyes, you should avoid wearing contact lenses for 72 hours after your treatment.
AFTER CARE ADVICE
Second and third stage healing
When the dots have fallen off then your skin may be a little pink as it is fresh, new and rejuvenated baby skin. This pinkness will fade over time in as little as 2 weeks up to a few months. In rare cases it may take up to 6 months.
Start using the Skin CANDY BALM or SCAR COVERAGE morning and evening Continue to cleanse the areas NOT treated.
You absolutely MUST now begin to apply SPF 50 while your skin is in the healing stages (pink in color) and you should continue to do so for at least the next 12 weeks. The area(s) treated have produced brand new skin and may burn and/or pigment without adequate protection from the sun. Even while indoors - if your home has sunlight coming in the windows and you can not block the light, apply SPF 50.
SPF 50 should be worn before going outside, even with 5 minutes of sun exposure, as well as overcast days. Indoor lighting can cause risk of pigmentation on new healing skin.
You absolutely must NOT use saunas or sunbeds during your 12 week healing period and ideally for longer. Avoid the midday sun.
All other facial treatments on the same area should be avoided while your skin is healing.
Use of topical Retin A products should be avoided for 4 weeks.
For Plasma Pen

FOR PLASMA TREATMENT
Other Important Aftercare to help maintain Recommendations:
Avoid smoking and alcohol
Taking Vitamin C supplements over the course of your healing process can give your immune system a big boost and help you to repair.
Any additional treatments that may be required must only be performed once the skin is completely healed and has returned to its normal colour. This usually takes about 16 weeks.
Plasma Pen treatment is the gift that keeps giving and, on top of the immediate rejuvenation, lifting and tightening affects you will likely experience, it can take 12 weeks for the full effects of your treatment to be seen. You may not actually require further treatment once the effects of your original treatment are more determinable.
Please note that if you do require a longer period of time between treatments the delay will not alter the outcome/results.
to maintain results we high recommend have a check up or review with your technicain every 6-12 months
planned second treatments must be considered after 4 months
