The Plasma Pen is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive anti-aging treatment that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, saggy skin, and textural imperfections. Unlike cosmetic surgery, the Plasma Pen improves the natural appearance of your skin rather than drastically changing it.
As you age, your skin naturally thins because your body produces less collagen, which is a protein that helps build your connective tissues. It keeps your skin firm, supple, and buoyant. Without collagen, your skin starts to wrinkle and sag.
The Plasma Pen is a treatment that triggers your body’s collagen production through fibroblast plasma. Fibroblasts are the most common cells inside your connective tissues that produce collagen.
During the procedure, your aesthetician uses the Plasma Pen to beam a plasma flash from the tip of the pen into the targeted treatment area. The pen never actually touches your skin, instead creating a small dot (carbon crust) at the treatment site.
The electrical energy creates micro-trauma in the surface layer of your skin while gently heating the layers underneath. This triggers your body’s healing response, which sparks the production of collagen to tighten and lift your skin.
As a minimally invasive treatment, the Plasma Pen can effectively firm and tighten skin nearly anywhere on your face and body. If you’re unhappy with the tone and texture of your skin, the Plasma Pen can help treat:
What makes the Plasma Pen unique is that it requires no incisions, sutures, or injectables.
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your Plasma Pen treatment, but it’s important not to irritate your carbon crusts. Although they should slough off within seven days of treatment, you should avoid sports, sauna, and swimming pools until then. Make sure to use sunscreen to protect your skin when you go outside.
Most patients see noticeable results from their first Plasma Pen treatment within just two to four weeks. However, your best results will appear after about three months.
