Plasma Pen Q & A
What is the Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen is a noninvasive and painless solution for wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. The highly-trained specialists at Skin Deep Medical Spa perform Plasma Pen treatments in the office, and there’s no downtime necessary.
How does Plasma Pen treatment work?
The Skin Deep Medical Spa team applies numbing cream to keep you comfortable. The Plasma Pen device generates energy and ionizes gas in the air to create a plasma stream. The plasma stream shoots out of the pen, going just above your skin to transmit the energy into your epidermal and dermal layers.
Plasma Pen treatment focuses on the fibroblasts, the cells that synthesize collagen, so the treatment is sometimes called fibroblasting. This controlled microtrauma causes the new collagen growth needed for skin support, fine-line smoothing, and other skin improvements.
What areas does the Plasma Pen treat?
The Plasma Pen treats all the areas in your face that can betray passing years, including:
- Upper eyelids
- Under eyes (tear troughs)
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines) around your nose and mouth
- Corner-of-mouth drooping (marionette lines)
The Plasma Pen can also be effective in various parts of the body. It’s an excellent solution for stretch marks and loose skin nearly anywhere, including your abdomen, upper arms, hips, and other areas.
What can I expect following Plasma Pen treatment?
After your Plasma Pen treatment at Skin Deep Medical Spa, you can expect tiny scabs to develop and then fall off over the next several days. You should avoid sun exposure during this time. After a few days, you can lightly apply makeup if you wish.
As the scabs fall off, you’ll see tighter, more youthful, and fresher skin. After about a month, you’ll notice even better results because new collagen starts to fill in lines around that time. Collagen production can continue for up to three months.
How many Plasma Pen treatments do I need?
Most patients enjoy impressive results with one treatment. If you want additional tightening and firming, you can schedule an extra session after seeing your initial results. The Skin Deep Medical Spa team can discuss your specific needs with you to help you decide on a treatment plan.
