As we age, the dermal layer of our skin thins, we produce less collagen, and we lose elasticity. All of these factors produce sagging and wrinkling of the skin. The Plasma Pen is the latest cosmetic procedure to combat all of these issues. It is the world's most advanced, non-invasive device used to significantly tighten, lift, resurface, rejuvenate and regenerate the skin. The results are virtually immediate and incredibly long lasting without the need for fillers or surgical correction.
Plasma pen targets the following areas: upper and lower eyelids, forehead lines, neck lines, stretch marks, loose skin, nasolabial folds, jowls/jawline, crow's feet, tear troughs and earlobes.
The Plasma Pen utilizes electrostatic energy delivered through a small tipped applicator. These energy impulses discharge precise flashes of plasma in millisecond bursts, triggering the body’s natural healing and anti-aging processes in the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. It creates a dual zone of micro-trauma which comprises of a superficial zone of outer thermal micro-damage to the epidermis and then a deeper zone of inner thermal modification in the dermis- especially to the fibroblasts. This is why this treatment is also known as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body and the only cells that can make Type III collagen. Most fibroblasts (called fibrocytes) are inactive and rarely undergo cell division and will not produce collagen unless they are specifically re-activated by a wound healing process or inflammatory response. This is what the Plasma Pen does.
Topical numbing agents are used on the skin during treatment. Most clients report minimal discomfort and often describe the treatment as "tingly". There is little to no downtime after a Plasma Pen treatment. The highly accurate and controlled trauma that is caused to the epidermis makes the skin dry superficially into tiny carbon crusts, which fall off within a few days. For the next several weeks and even months, collagen production gradually increases. This improves plumpness, giving your skin the support structure it needs to lift and tighten. After a single Plasma Pen treatment, patients can expect to see full results after 6 months of natural collagen building and the results can last up to 3 years.
A Plasma Pen treatment is often chosen over plastic surgery because of its incredible results and the following reasons: no cutting of the skin, no stitches, very low risk procedure, no thinning of the skin, less to no recovery time, significantly lower cost, no general anesthetic, and it is a quick and easy treatment.
