The Plasma Pen is a non-invasive device that provides fibroblast therapy to significantly tighten, lift, and regenerate various areas of the skin. This cosmetic treatment is a revolutionary new procedure that targets a wide variety of different skin conditions like wrinkles and scars. Before the procedure, the area of treatment is numbed to leave the process virtually painless. This device is a very low-risk procedure as it doesn’t involve stitching, cutting, or scars.
The Plasma Pen is a hand-held CE (certified device) that stimulates collagen production and thermal disruption, both of which benefit the skin to activate and release proteins. This form of treatment can be utilized in several procedures without the need for costly and invasive surgery. The device will treat, but is not limited to, acne scars, forehead lines, smoker’s lines, stretch marks, upper and lower eyelids, just to name a few. The effects of this device last just as long as the results of invasive operations. Results from the Plasma Pen are more cost-effective and more uniform than cosmetic surgery. The results will potentially last you years depending on which area of the skin is treated. By using this device, your skin is rejuvenated and you experience long-lasting effects.
What is the Plasma Pen and How Does it Work
The Plasma Pen, as the name implies, is a device that looks like a pen and is used to tighten and resurface the skin much like a laser lightly. The Plasma Pen emits an electrical current that reacts with oxygen and nitrogen in the air to produce a stream of plasma. Plasma is very similar to an electrical current. It is used to heat the surface layer of the skin producing a light control burn. The healing process then increases collagen and elastin in the skin and creates a smoothing and tightening effect.
Procedure Recovery and Downtime
The Plasma Pen is used with just topical anesthetic (no shots). There is downtime from the Plasma Pen. This is a so-called ablative procedure in which the skin is lightly and in a controlled fashion, burned at the surface. Patients keep the skin covered with Aquaphor and may use other topical creams to facilitate healing. Generally, raw areas are healed and red within four to five days; however, this produces a distinct and noticeable wound, although many patients do go to work in the early phases of healing because we tend to treat small areas with the Plasma Pen and not the full face.
What Areas Are Treated
The Plasma Pen is most commonly used to treat fine wrinkles around the lips, lower eyelids, and crow’s feet. It can also be used in other areas including creases in the forehead. When in direct contact with the skin, the Plasma Pen works to contract and tighten the surface tissue to create immediate lifting. This market-leading device has been tested and proven to provide faster recovery, shorter downtimes, and more precise treatment. The pen has the power to shed the old cells of the skin and replace it with new ones, leaving the skin fresh and rejuvenated. The Plasma Pen delivers amazing, long-lasting results.
