Plasma Pen is a new revolutionary non-surgical advanced, non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, and, lift and tighten loose skin. Results lasting up to three years! It is particularly effective for the face and neck areas that were traditionally treated with plastic surgery or dermal fillers.
The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved device that produces tiny points of trauma to tighten and regenerate the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. The pinpoint accuracy of the Plasma Pen allows areas such as the upper and lower eyelids that were previously unreachable by non-surgical methods to be lifted and tightened.
Plasma is often described as the fourth state of matter and is actually a hot, ionized gas. Unlike ordinary gases, plasma conducts electricity, creates magnetic fields, and has coherent characteristics that allow it to be controlled and concentrated, which is key to the effectiveness of Plasma Pen treatments. Plasma is used all around you in plasma TV’s, neon lights, and many other applications. Inside the Plasma Pen, a voltage between two electrodes is released to produce an arc of ionized nitrogen plasma about 1mm above the skin.
The energized plasma introduces a tiny trauma at the surface of the skin that heats the deeper dermis tissue. This heating stimulates structures known as fibroblasts to produce new collagen that forms the scaffolding of our skin and provides support and elasticity. As the micro-traumas heal, skin fibers contract, shorten, and tighten to eliminate wrinkles and produce a more even complexion. The production of new collagen firms and plumps the treated area to provide smoother, fuller skin.
The Plasma Pen significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces, and regenerates practically any area of the skin. Plasma Pen produces excellent results, particularly the face and neck regions. It is important for anyone considering Plasma pen treatments to have a comprehensive consultation to carefully review the Plasma Pen contraindications, and aftercare instructions, risks and skin types that can be safely treated.
These areas include:
The healing process normally takes 7-10 days and tighter skin with more even complexion will be seen immediately. The longer lasting results from the generation of new collagen begin to appear in 2-4 weeks, continue to improve for about three months, and can last up to three years.
This depends on the treatment area, the extent of existing skin damage, and the desired amount of improvement. In many cases, a single treatment will produce the desired results. One of the great advantages of Plasma Pen treatments is that the results are cumulative. Additional treatments may be performed at 2-3-month intervals to achieve the desired or possible level of improvement.
Plasma Pen treatments are mildly to moderately uncomfortable. We apply a potent topical anesthetic prior to the treatment to reduce or eliminate discomfort but each person tolerates discomfort differently and some treatment areas will be more sensitive than others.
