Contraindications to Jett Medical Plasma Lift

Alcohol & Drug Abuse

Alcohol and drug abuse dry and thin the skin making it sensitive to treatment whilst impairing its ability to heal. Jett Medical Plasma is not safe in these circumstance.

Alopecia:

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 Jett Medical Plasma Pen.

Anaemia:

Anaemia is a condition characterised by a deficiency of red cells and clients with this condition may take longer to heal.

Anaesthetics:

Usually any reaction to the topical cream would be due to the base or preparation that the anaesthetic is found in, such as the cream or the gel. All clients will recieve a patch test with topical anaesthetic cream during consultation. If a reaction is experienced, then we could look at alternative preparations.

Anti Inflammatory Medication (Naproxen, Antihistamine etc)

Sensation may be different and healing may take longer. Several lighter treatments may be required.

Asthma:

Asthma is characterised by inflammation of the air passages resulting in the temporary narrowing of the airways, 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, your skin may be more sensitive and take longer to heal.
