Plasma Pen: A Way to Spark Youthful Skin
Looking in the mirror, you might notice new signs of aging, such as fine lines or crepey skin. Many of our patients are interested in skin tightening to get a more youthful appearance. That’s why we offer revolutionary treatment with the Plasma Pen. You can minimize the signs of aging with this cutting-edge technology.
How does Plasma Pen treatment work, and could it be the right fit for you? Here is everything you need to know about the Plasma Pen.
How Does the Plasma Pen Work?
Before you sign up for your first session with the Plasma Pen, you need to understand just how this skin remodeling treatment works for you. While the technology is unique, it is not difficult to understand just how the pen will deliver smoother and more youthful-looking skin in the areas where it is applied.
The Plasma Pen works to promote skin tightening by issuing a small plasma spark to the skin in the treatment area. This causes a small micro-wound to the upper layer of the skin.
The spark is followed by a delivery of heat into areas of the face that have started to develop fine lines. This is because these areas now lack the collagen you had when you were younger, and the elastin fibers have started to weaken. Combined, the spark and the heat promote an increase in collagen and elastin production.
Results with the Plasma Pen are not immediate, but they do show relatively quickly. Most people will see optimal results approximately six to eight weeks following their treatment. It takes this long for the collagen to form, effectively reducing your fine lines and tightening the skin.
What Does the Plasma Pen Treat?
If you are thinking about skin remodeling, the good news is that the Plasma Pen can target many different parts of the body. This skin tightening technique can treat any area that might show decreased collagen production and, therefore, appear older.
A few of the most common treatment areas include:
- Around the mouth
- Around the eyes
While fine lines may be the most common reason to consider skin remodeling with the Plasma Pen, the technology can be used to effectively treat other concerns as well. It can target crow’s feet around the eyes, hooded eyelids, and smoker’s lines near the mouth. The treatment can also address sagging skin on the stomach and crepey skin.
Your First Plasma Pen Session
You can come prepared for your first appointment with the Plasma Pen by knowing what to expect.
First, we will consult with you to conduct a skin analysis and determine the next right step for you. We offer our clients a customized approach to skin care that yields optimal results. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution because your skin is unique and will require different things to achieve the best results.
Our trained specialists will take their time to explain every step of your treatment, answer your questions, and offer advice on how to perform upkeep on your skin following the skin remodeling. You can either come into our office or book a virtual consultation.
With this non-invasive treatment, we will administer the sparks to the treatment area using the handheld device. It will impact the area where it is applied but leave the surrounding skin without damage. A session will take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, and you will need approximately three sessions spaced eight weeks apart.
Aftercare is the most important aspect of your skin tightening treatment. We see that patients who get the best results from the Plasma Pen are those who have been using cosmeceutical skin products that are right for their skin’s unique needs.
You will need to ensure that your skin remains hydrated and gets all of the necessary nutrients to grow the cells properly following treatment.
If you aren’t sure what to use on your skin, we will recommend a selection of skin care options to repair cells and keep your skin looking fresh and healthy while your body heals and boosts its collagen production.
You can drive yourself to and from your appointment, but you may have a few days of social downtime after your session. It can be ideal to schedule your appointment for later in the week so that you have the weekend to recover, heal, and start to see the benefits of your treatment.
Feel free to schedule any follow-up appointments that you need or book your next appointment about eight weeks out.
