Plasma Pen treatment is a highly controlled and targeted to a specific treatment area. This hand-held, pen-like device is held above the skin’s surface during treatment, from up to one millimeter away. Plasma Pen never comes into contact with the skin. It works by emitting plasma energy, which reacts with the naturally occurring nitrogen molecules in the air. The reaction between the plasma energy and the nitrogen molecules creates an energetic burst in the shape of an arc, creating a micro-injury in the top layer of skin as well as heating up the dermis, where it causes collagen fibers to contract.
Plasma Pen creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which results in some immediate firming. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, triggering the growth of new collagen and elastin in the weeks and months following treatment. Treated skin will continue to gradually improve over three to six months.
Plasma Pen has low risk of side effects and minimal downtime when compared to more invasive surgical options. The device offers multiple energy settings, allowing certified and licensed practitioners the ability to customize the treatment for the patient’s skin condition and needs.
The state-of-the-art plasma energy treatment created tiny, superficial brown carbon crusts in the skin, which typically last three to five days before falling off naturally. These controlled microinjuries promote a long-term firming, tightening and smoothing through the skin’s own natural healing response.
