This is an autoimmune disease resulting in hair loss. Sufferers may be more sensitive to treatment but there should be no problems treating alopecia sufferers with Plasma Pen.
Anaemia is a condition characterized by a deficiency of the hemoglobin content of red corpuscles. These clients will bleed more profusely and will take longer to heal.
Usually a reaction would be due to the base or preparation that the anesthetic is found in, such as the cream or the gel. Your Celebrity Skin technician would patch test different types of anesthetic would determine whether this is the case. If you are allergic to the ‘caine’ used in anesthetics, then the treatment can still proceed without an anesthetic if you elect. A cold compress or a freezing or cooling unit, such as the ‘cool spot’, could be used instead.
Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the air passages resulting in the temporary narrowing of the airways and making it difficult to breathe. Asthma often requires the use of an inhaler to ease breathing. Regular use of an inhaler will cause thinning of the skin and
increased vascularity. If you have asthma, you may bleed more easily and sometimes bruise. Your skin may be more sensitive and take longer to heal.
Bruising or bleeding easily may indicate an underlying health problem, and if you are prone to bruise or bleed easily, you may take longer to heal from your Plasma Pen treatment.
Contact lenses must be removed before any treatment close to the eye, and must not be used for up to 72 hours post-procedure. We cannot begin to stress the importance of ensuring contact lenses are removed pre-treatment.
