What is Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen treatment is a skin rejuvenation treatment for skin tightening and skin resurfacing. The Plasma Pen uses electric energy combined with oxygen to create plasma energy, which has the unique ability to regenerate the outermost layers of skin while also rejuvenating the deeper layers for more profound results. The treatment is similar to microneedling, in that small injuries are made on the skin’s surface to trigger a healing response in the body. This results in an increase in collagen, which in addition to quickly healing the skin, will continue to provide rejuvenation benefits in the form of lifting and tightening the treatment area.
What Skin Conditions Can Plasma Pen Treat?
The plasma pen treatment is ideal for a variety of cosmetic concerns. Most often, the treatment is used to address signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance. Some of the specific conditions that the Plasma Pen can address include:
- Lines and wrinkles around the mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Crow’s feet
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scarring
- Bunny lines
- Loose skin or wrinkles on the neck or face
What Can I Expect from the Plasma Pen Treatment?
Prior to the Plasma Pen treatment, the skin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic. Then, the handheld Plasma Pen device is used to treat the desired areas. Most patients find the treatment to be tolerable, although minor discomfort can be expected from more sensitive treatment areas.
What is the Recovery Like from the Plasma Pen Treatment?
The recovery process following the Plasma Pen treatment takes about two weeks, although patients are able to return to most normal activities within just a few days of treatment. During this time, you can expect some minor swelling or redness in the skin, and will notice crusting in the treatment area. This is a natural part of the healing process, and these pieces of skin will flake off in the days following your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from the Plasma Pen Treatment?
The results from the Plasma Pen treatment will become visible as any side effects fade. These results will continue to improve in the weeks and months following treatment as collagen production increases in the body. You can expect to notice most results within three months of treatment. Depending on your cosmetic concerns, we may recommend additional treatment sessions to achieve your desired results.
