The Plasma Pen is the latest FDA-approved innovative treatment for lines, wrinkles, and droopy skin. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment for the face and body that treats wrinkles and saggy skin by causing an electrical arc to stimulate and ionize the air above the wrinkle, thus causing the skin to tighten and contract. It targets the fibroblast cell which is part of the connective tissue. A series of dots are created along the skin triggering tightening, lifting, and collagen regrowth.
The Plasma Pen emits a controlled electric charge that delivers plasma gat particles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. The body responds to these micro-injuries by increasing its turnover of new cells and producing healthy collagen and elastin. Higher settings can also be used to vaporize excess skin tissue in certain areas.
This a no-contact device that uses a controlled electric charge to deliver plasma gas particles that create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, vaporizing excess skin tissues. Micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, leading to skin cell regeneration and new collagen and elastin formation. The treated areas develop small scabs that gradually flake off within a week, revealing fresh, new, and restored skin. The treatment leads to tightened, taut, and smooth skin.
A topical numbing cream is usually applied 30 minutes prior to treatment to minimize pain and make the procedure comfortable. The Plasma Pen is then set to deliver the right amount of plasma energy into treatment areas and it is then carefully run above the treatment area, against a pattern of dots that have been on the skin. The device doesn’t ever touch the skin but instead delivers the energy from above it. Treatment time can vary from 30 to 60 minutes, with areas such as the upper and lower eyelids treatable in 30 minutes, while larger areas will require a longer treatment time.
Following the procedure, mild scabs and crusts will form and swelling can also occur. The crusts usually disappear by the 5th to 7th day leaving fresh, smooth skin. There is some mild redness to the skin that usually lasts between 2 to 4 weeks and can be covered by foundation.
This FDA-approved treatment can be very safely and effectively administered by our trained physicians. If you’d like the benefits of facial rejuvenation and of reversing some of the many common signs of aging without requiring any surgery or extended downtime, you are very likely a candidate for Plasma Pen treatment. Treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, or for persons with certain autoimmune conditions.
