The Plasma Pen, or Fibroblast Treatment, is a skin tightening beauty enhancement procedure. It is an extremely safe, low risk, and highly effective treatment that produces dramatic results.
The device produces plasma waves which are directed at areas of wrinkles and laxity. The old collagen evaporates with exposure to the plasma wave and stimulates the fibroblast. Fibroblasts are the collagen-producing cells in the skin and are stimulated during this treatment. This helps revive collagen, hyaluronic acid, and fibronectin to produce more youthful skin.
As the plasma wave touches the skin, it creates a series of tiny brown dots – “carbon crust” caused by the micro-injuries. These dots are strategically placed to attain the desired result. The micro-injuries immediately tighten the surrounding skin by pulling the cells closer together. The brown dots fall off naturally 3-7 days post-treatment.
As with most cosmetic treatments, a consultation with an experienced, trained practitioner is needed and a strict aftercare routine is required for proper healing.
Plasma Pen FAQs
When Will I See Results?
Immediately. You may feel a slight burning sensation – similar to a sunburn – that usually resolves in a couple of hours. During the healing process, some swelling may occur. Administering ice packs can help both burning and swelling.
Where Can the Plasma Pen be Used?
Almost anywhere there is wrinkled or lax skin the plasma pen can access old collagen and stimulate the fibroblasts. The most common areas are listed below:
Facial Plasma Pen Areas
Lip lift/frown lines
Body Plasma Pen Areas
A plasma arc – a small electrical charge – creates controlled light damage to the upper layer of the skin (epidermis).
This action stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce more collagen to repair the skin.
Collagen continues to generate for 4-6 weeks after treatment resulting in lifted, younger, and smoother skin.
How Long Does Plasma Pen Treatment Last?
The results are immediate and last up to 18-24 months with proper care.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Most treatments require 60-90 minutes for the procedure but it can take longer. This is dependent on the size and number of areas treated.
Does it Hurt?
Discomfort is minimal to moderate. Your injector will use numbing cream and/or ice packs to aid with treatment and for enhanced patient comfort. After the treatment, it will feel like a sunburn.
As desired to maintain.
How Much Does a Plasma Pen Treatment Cost?
The cost is dependent on the extent of the procedure and the number of areas treated. We advise having a complimentary consultation before being treated.
