The Plasma Pen is an innovative, nonsurgical skin treatment that uses a plasma gas energy to penetrate the skin down into the deep layers to help produce collagen and fibroblast activity. This treatment is sometimes referred to as fibroblasting. It helps to correct a variety of different skin concerns. The Plasma Pen is a revolutionary technology that is changing the way that skin rejuvenation is done. It helps patients to get amazing results that are long-lasting.
The Plasma Pen uses electrostatic energy that comes from a combination of nitrogen and oxygen with a small amount of electronic charge. This energy is delivered through a small tipped applicator. The energy discharges precise plasma flashes in small bursts to the skin. The bursts of energy help to trigger your body’s natural production of collagen and fibroblast activity. These are basic structural forms in the body that aid in healing and anti-aging. Since the Plasma Pen helps the production of collagen and fibroblast activity, the results continue to improve over time.

The Plasma Pen is most generally used on the face and neck to treat aging signs such as sagging skin, wrinkles, and bags under the eyes. However, it can also be used on the hands and elbows. Plasma Pen is one of the most advanced skin rejuvenating techniques on the market.
Before the Plasma Pen treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area to ensure complete comfort. Most patients experience little-to-no discomfort during their Plasma Pen treatment. After the session, the skin may feel sensitive for a few days, but this is completely normal.
The duration of the treatment will vary depending on the size of the treatment area. Treatment times can range from 30 to 120 minutes. The treatment will be created for each patient based on their needs by their specialist at Laser Skin & Wellness.
The recovery time for Plasma Pen is quicker than other traditional forms of skin rejuvenation. For the first couple of days following the treatment, patients may notice that their skin is sensitive. Some patients may also notice some redness, swelling, and scabbing in the treatment area. A post-treatment topical cream will be given to help moisturize the skin and keep it healthy. After three days, any side effects should start to subside. After a week, your skin will be healthy and regular skincare products can be used again. It is important to follow all directions given by your Plasma Pen specialist here at Laser Skin & Wellness to ensure the best results.

Plasma Pen can produce more long-term results than many other treatments. On average, patients see results for around three years after a treatment session.
How painful is plasma pen?
Everyone experiences different levels of pain, but most patients can tolerate Plasma Pen treatments. It’s often performed using a topical numbing cream so that you’re relaxed and comfortable.
What is the difference between Plasma Pen and microneedling?
There are a lot of similarities between these two options, but they use different mechanisms to achieve the same goals. Plasma Pen uses plasma gas energy while microneedling uses tiny needles to create channels in the skin. Each option boosts your skin’s collagen production and regenerative functions.
