Have you ever wondered how celebrities maintain smooth, supple, and glowing skin?
The Plasma Pen is one of Hollywood’s top skincare secrets, and for good reason.
So, what is the Plasma Pen? How does it work? What can it treat?
Continue reading to learn all about the Plasma Pen, and what patients can expect should they decide to undergo treatment.
What Is the Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen is a noninvasive skin tightening, skin lifting, and skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates fibroblasts and increases the production of collagen and elastin.
It can be applied to the face and body and is an excellent option for anyone who wants to reverse signs of aging and revitalize their skin – without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or scarring.
How Does the Plasma Pen Work?
During treatment, the Plasma Pen emits a thermal energy. When this energy reaches 1mm from the skin, it mixes with oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere to produce a plasma arc.
The plasma arc is transmitted to the epidermis, causing microinjuries. At the same time, it heats the deeper dermis and creates controlled thermal damage.
All of this induces a wound-healing effect and prompts fibroblasts to repair tissue and stimulate collagen growth.
What Concerns Can the Plasma Pen Address?
The Plasma Pen is equipped to correct a wide-range of skin concerns, including:
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Vertical lip lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Skin laxity on the neck
- Upper eyelid hooding
- Lower eyelid bags
Is There Any Downtime?
Following a Plasma Pen treatment, patients can anticipate some social downtime.
While this can vary from person to person, it usually averages 8 days for face and neck treatments, and 10-14 days for body treatments.
