A Fresh Start

What is the Plasma Pen?

The Plasma Pen is a non-surgical skin tightening method used to smooth and fade signs of aging like wrinkles, creases, sagging skin, and stretch marks. It works by utilizing a controlled electrical arc to create tiny controlled injuries on the skin that stimulate the body's natural healing response.

This boosts the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that give skin its elasticity and firmness. The experienced providers at Skin Deep Medical Spa perform Plasma Pen treatments in an in-office session that requires a relatively short amount of downtime while providing impressive results.

Versatile Enough for the Face & Body

What are the benefits of Plasma Pen?

Plasma Pen treatments are incredibly versatile, turning back the clock on different signs of aging, including fine lines, dynamic wrinkles, deep facial creases, sagging or loose skin, and stretch marks.

By initiating your body’s healing process, the treatment helps aging skin cells turn over while tightening the skin through increased production of collagen, the protein that keeps your skin flexible and strong. The Plasma Pen can be beneficial for reducing lines, sagging skin, or stretch marks on both the face and body.

Expert Care, Every Time

Your Plasma Pen Procedure

The length of a Plasma Pen appointment will depend on the treatment areas, with smaller areas taking as little as thirty minutes, while more extensive treatments might require an hour or more. To ensure your comfort, your Skin Deep specialist will first apply a topical anesthetic.

They will then carefully apply the Plasma Pen to create a pattern of micro-injuries on the skin’s surface with a controlled electrical arc. This process is sometimes referred to as “fibroblasting” because it targets fibroblasts, which are the cells in the dermis that produce collagen. After the treatment, you will be able to return to light activities but may want social downtime as the area heals over approximately one week.

Unveil a Younger Look

Plasma Pen Recovery and Aftercare

The treatment area will appear slightly red and swollen after your visit, and small scabs may develop where the Plasma Pen was applied to the skin. These are normal side effects and a sign that the treatment is working.

Keep the area clean and avoid picking at or scratching the scabs to promote proper healing. Your provider will give you clear aftercare instructions that include avoiding exposure to direct sunlight to protect the skin during the healing process and prevent hyperpigmentation. Moisturizing the skin with gentle, hydrating products can also soothe any discomfort and support skin regeneration. You may wish for some social downtime as the area heals, but most people return to the majority of their regular activities within a few days to a week.

As the treatment area heals, you may notice an immediate tightening effect on your skin. You may notice continued improvements for up to six to twelve weeks. During this time, increased collagen production and cellular turnover continue to go to work behind the scenes, revealing your most smooth, radiant complexion. Facial lines and creases are visibly diminished, and stretch marks or sagging skin on the body are markedly reduced. The results of a Plasma Pen treatment can set back the clock on signs of aging, providing a big boost in confidence that can have benefits for your self-esteem and help you feel more enthusiastic about your personal or professional life.

Plasma Pen Frequently Asked Questions

Most people get impressive results from just one Plasma Pen treatment, but if you want to pursue more refined results, repeat treatments may be an option. Your Skin Deep specialist will spend time learning about your goals and carefully assessing potential treatment areas to recommend the best regimen.

The Plasma Pen can treat various areas of the face and body, including the eyelids, around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, jawline, neck, décolletage, upper arms, abdomen, hips, or elsewhere. It can improve a wide range of skin concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks.

Plasma Pen is generally safe on fairer skin tones. Your Skin Deep specialists will assess your skin type to ensure that we only perform treatments that will be safe and effective for your needs. If Plasma Pen is not a good match, we can recommend another treatment modality that provides the benefits you are seeking without unwanted side effects.

In the hands of our aesthetic specialists, Plasma Pen treatments are performed in accordance with the highest safety standards. You should never have a Plasma Pen treatment performed by an inexperienced or unqualified provider. Side effects like scabbing and mild swelling are normal following a Plasma Pen session. To ensure excellent healing and results, it’s essential to follow the aftercare instructions you are provided and reach out any time you have questions or concerns.

The full results typically develop gradually over several weeks to months as the skin undergoes remodeling and collagen production increases. Most patients begin to see visible improvements within a few weeks, with continued enhancement over time.
