How is Plasma rejuvenation different from a laser treatment?

Unlike a laser treatment, the interaction of the device’s nitrogen plasma with your skin tissue is what is termed “non–chromophore dependent.” This means that in skin smoothing and tightening, it does not rely upon interacting with chromophores, the part of a molecule that gives it its color.

Instead, it delivers predictable and fully controlled energy to the skin’s deeper architecture and does not cause the thermal damage to the surrounding tissue, which is common with an ablative laser treatment. Plasma rejuvenation is uniform, causing literally no damage to the surrounding tissue. Your skin remains fully intact following a plasma rejuvenation treatment.

What results can be achieved with plasma rejuvenation?

The results of this groundbreaking development in skin tightening include:

  • Reduces visible sun damage
  • Reduces superficial facial wrinkles
  • Reduces medium-depth wrinkles
  • Tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates skin
  • Markedly softens the appearance of deeper wrinkles

What areas are targeted by the plasma pen?

The plasma pen targets the fine lines and skin laxity in the following facial areas:

  • Upper and lower lids
  • Forehead lines
  • Neck lines
  • Stretch marks
  • Loose skin
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jowls and wrinkles around the jawline
  • Crow’s feet
  • Ear lobes

What is a Plasma Pen treatment like to experience?

The treatment is not difficult to experience but can be slightly uncomfortable unless the area is numbed. To ensure you are as comfortable as possible, a local anesthetic cream will be applied to numb the skin you want to rejuvenate. The Plasma Pen device creates a small electrical arc, which tightens the skin fibers, creating a marked increase in skin tightness and a fresh, youthful quality. The device is used in a grid pattern on the area to be treated, creating tiny dots which will require about one week to clear.

What is the downtime with a Plasma Pen treatment?

You will have some downtime, as the areas where the electrical arc treated your skin will be visible for about one week. You can expect some swelling after treatment in the eye area, which takes about three or four days to disappear. Tiny little round scabs form where the energy was applied, which begin to fall away in about three days, with about one week before they all fully disappear. You will be left with clear, youthful, tighter, more radiant skin.

How many treatments will I need?

One of the exciting aspects of treatment with the Plasma Pen is that most patients will require just one treatment to achieve long-lasting results – up to three years or longer. If one treatment does not achieve the effect you want, another treatment can be performed in about three months, but usually a repeat treatment is not needed for years.
