We always love bringing our patients the latest and greatest anti-ageing treatments, and we are so EXCITED to now offer Plasma Pen! Plasma Pen is the world’s most advanced, non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, and sagging dull skin. The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved, the device used to perform fibroblast therapy, a technique used to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Plasma Pen technicians use the device to delivery soft-surgery plasma fibroblast. The plasma significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces and regenerates practically any area of the skin.
Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous nitrogen and transmits that energized gas to the skin’s surface causing a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen. You will typically see immediate tightening and results continue to improve over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin. In some cases, it may require more than one session depending on the desired results.
Plasma Pen spectacularly improves skin tone, brightness, laxity and texture and lifts and tightens loose skin. The Plasma Pen treatment is best for patients who have considered cosmetic surgery (or not) but don’t want the lengthy recovery time. This innovative treatment is a great alternative to correct areas that cannot be improved with dermal fillers or laser resurfacing. One area that we have seen great results with is the delicate eye area. Drooping eyelids, deep crows feet lines and superficial wrinkles can all be vastly improved by Plasma Pen.
Plasma Pen is a highly versatile, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment where results are practically immediate (permanent in some cases) and generally last up to 3 years in others – all with no blood, no open wounds, no cutting of the skin, no heavy ablation, no chemicals, no thinning of the skin, no complications and ultimately no need for costly and invasive surgery.
There is some “social” downtime. No need to hide away for a week, you can be out and about with little to no side effects, you’ll just be rocking some dots in the treatment area. (See Below) Downtime is very subjective but if you are comparing it to cosmetic surgery, then the downtime is minimal. The most common effects seen after treatment are; redness, swelling and scabbing in the treatment area. (Those awesome dots I mentioned before) This downtime is dependent on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment. Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 3. After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form. Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck). Please be aware that the days indicated are simply guidelines for average healing time. Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the aftercare protocol: no drinking alcohol, no smoking and no picking/scrubbing.
