Plasma Pen can be instrumental in dealing with aging skin and the loss of collagen and elasticity. This skin enhancement procedure can tighten your skin in specific areas and treat fine lines and wrinkles and other facial concerns.

If you are ready to make changes that will enhance your physical appearance and improve the quality of your life, let us treat you to a new you at our Transformations Center for Rejuvenation.

The adage that the pen is mightier than the sword may be true when it comes to improving or eliminating wrinkles and rejuvenating your skin.

How does Plasma Pen work?

Plasma Pen is a type of ionized gas that converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen. The energized gas is exposed to the epidermis, the top layers of the skin, to heat and disrupt the deeper layers and reach and stimulate the fibroblasts, the most common cells of connective tissue that produce collagen, without damaging any of the surrounding tissues. This encourages your body to naturally produce collagen and elastin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and other skin conditions.

What Is Plasma Pen?

Plasma Pen is a new advanced non-invasive procedure that improves many skin conditions by lifting and tightening your skin to treat fine lines and wrinkles and sagging skin and rejuvenate your appearance, all without the cost and pain of invasive surgery. As the only FDA-approved fibroblast technology, Plasma Pen can stimulate the production of collagen in your skin and help regenerate many areas of the skin.

Am I a candidate for a Plasma Pen treatment?

Fair and light-skinned people in good physical health are good candidates for a Plasma Pen procedure. However, this procedure may not benefit patients with darker skin tones because there is a greater risk of hyperpigmentation or discoloration after recovery. We can review your situation during your consultation. Women who are pregnant or nursing or diabetic people should avoid Plasma Pen treatment.

Some results may be immediately noticeable with cumulative improvements over the next few weeks. It can take two or three months to realize the full results, which can last up several years.

After surgery How to handle the recovery

Following your Plasma Pen procedure, you may experience mild-to-moderate discomfort in the treated area. There may also be some minor swelling and redness for a few days. It is normal for your skin to feel a little tight and dry while it heals naturally over the first few days. A scab will likely form after two or three days and fall off within a week.

You can apply a gel to soothe your skin and help with your healing. Do not pick or touch the treated area. Most patients return to their normal activities after visiting our office. You should avoid intense exercises for a few days. And it is important to have proper protection when out in direct sunlight. It will take several weeks to see the full effect of your treatment as your body naturally heals itself.
