Plasma Pen

As we age, the dermal layer of the skin starts getting thinner, elasticity lessens and collagen levels decrease, leading to wrinkles, lines and sagging skin. The Plasma Pen is a soft surgical procedure that is capable of treating a wide range of skin conditions that are usually treated with surgery or cosmetic injections.

What exactly is Plasma Pen?

Your skin goes through a number of changes as you age, not to mention the effects that environmental factors and lifestyle habits have on the appearance and quality of your skin.

As we age, the dermal layer of the skin starts getting thinner, elasticity lessens and collagen levels decrease, leading to wrinkles, lines and sagging skin. The Plasma Pen is a soft surgical procedure that is capable of treating a wide range of skin conditions that are usually treated with surgery or cosmetic injections.

This advanced treatment is FDA-approved and uses fibroblast therapy to stimulate collagen production, which tightens, lifts and rejuvenates the skin, all without the need for incisions or downtime.

What the Plasma Pen can Treat

The following skin concerns can be treated using the Plasma Pen

  • Crow’s feet
  • Under-eye bags and hooded eyelids
  • Accordion lines around the mouth
  • Acne scars
  • Raised moles, cysts and skin tags
  • Forehead lines
  • Jowl tightening
  • Smile lines
  • Stretchmarks
  • Necklines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Surgery scar treatment

What to Expect During Your Plasma Pen Treatment

Once the skin has been cleaned and prepped, the Plasma Pen will be moved over the problem area.

The device uses atmospheric gasses to form a plasma plume, which is used to create superficial injuries across the epidermis. This controlled damage is what stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen and tighten the skin.

While the treatment can cause moderate discomfort depending on your pain levels, a numbing cream will be applied to the skin prior to treatment to make it as comfortable as possible. The average treatment only lasts 30 minutes but set aside an hour to allow time for your consultation and the application of the numbing cream.

You will also need to follow specific aftercare instructions to avoid any complications such as infection.

Plasma Pen Treatments: What Patients Need to Know

  • Long-lasting results. The results of a Plasma Pen treatment can be seen 3 – 4 months later and can last 2 – 3 years
  • Scabbing should be expected. Following your treatment, there may be some mild swelling and small scabs will form over the treated area
  • Downtime may be necessary. In most cases, patients choose to take a week off work following their Plasma Pen treatment but this is all dependent on how comfortable you feel about the appearance of your skin. You can choose to shorten your recovery time if you want to
  • A single treatment is enough. Depending on the level of skin laxity, one Plasma Pen treatment is generally enough to achieve the desired result but a second treatment may be required in some cases. Your clinician will advise you accordingly during your consultation
  • Sun exposure should be avoided. It’s important to avoid direct sun exposure for several days before and after your treatment
