What is the Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen is an exciting new device that’s designed to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and other complexion imperfections. There’s no surgery or stitches involved; in fact, unlike microneedling, the Plasma Pen doesn’t even use any needles. It’s an excellent solution for patients who want to get the best skin possible, but don’t want to be uncomfortable in their pursuit for a beautiful complexion!
How Does It Work?
The Plasma Pen works by using electrostatic energy to gently deliver pulses of plasma to key facial areas, like around the eyes and the mouth. These pulses are designed to trigger the body’s natural collagen and elastin production, which are two fundamental building blocks for beautiful and effortlessly flawless-looking skin. This excess collagen and elastin production has several exciting benefits, including:
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Improvement in wrinkles and fine lines
- Minimized hyperpigmentation
- Faded acne scars
- Tighter, firmer-looking skin
- And more!
Am I A Good Candidate?
You’re a good candidate for Plasma Pen treatments if you have wrinkles and sagging around your eyes or heavy undereye bags. You may also benefit from Plasma Pen treatments if you have sagging skin on smaller areas of your body, like your elbows or your knees.
How Long Does Treatment Take?*
The length of the Plasma Pen treatment depends on where it’s being used. You can expect your treatment to take 30 minutes (for eye treatments) or up to 120 minutes (for body treatments). Some patients feel slightly uncomfortable during their Plasma Pen treatment, so we may use numbing cream to prepare you for your session. We’ll also apply an aftercare cream to help minimize redness after your treatment.
What Results Will I See?*
Results are almost immediate and last for up to three years (!). They include firmer and younger-looking skin, as well as a significant improvement in hyperpigmentation and scarring. Skin will also look more radiant and feel thicker to the touch.
Full results are usually visible about six months after your Plasma Pen treatment.
Is There Any Down Time?
There’s no downtime, but we do advise clients that they may experience slight redness and skin flaking for a few days after their Plasma Pen treatment. We also advise clients to wear sunscreen immediately after their Plasma Pen session.
