The Plasma Pen serves as one of the newest treatments in the fight against aging skin. Non-surgical, non-invasive, and appropriate for almost anywhere on your body, Plasma Pen treatments stimulate collagen production.
Boosted collagen allows the body to naturally reduce the appearance of wrinkles and rejuvenate dull and sagging skin. In the hands of a skilled and trained professional, like the team at Meridian Medical Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida, a Plasma Pen provides patients with a youthful, sculpted look.
While the Plasma Pen is a new addition to the world of anti-aging, it’s quickly becoming a popular option, offering healthy, rejuvenated skin in just a couple of treatments.
What Is the Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen is also called plasma fibroblast therapy. It’s an FDA-approved non-invasive anti-aging treatment that resurfaces the skin. Beyond a wrinkle treatment, the Plasma pen lifts, tightens, and rejuvenates the skin.
Advertised as the world’s most advanced non-invasive skin-tightening device, the Plasma Pen also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While most patients request Plasma Pen treatments on areas around the face, it also works on:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Lower legs
The effectiveness of Plasma Pen treatments makes them a tool for achieving many aesthetic goals.
How Does the Plasma Pen Work?
The Plasma Pen utilizes a process called soft-surgery plasma fibroblasting. This process uses nitrogen plasma energy to penetrate the skin’s layers. As a result, the sterile, disposable needle attachment of the Plasma Pen never touches the skin.
Instead, the Plasma Pen creates plasma waves directed along wrinkle lines. The plasma arc connects the device’s tip to the skin’s surface in an arcing process. Arcing causes the old collagen in the skin to evaporate and stimulates collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts.
The advanced Plasma Pen procedure revives the skin’s natural levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid necessary for fresh, youthful-looking skin.
Plasma Pen therapy uses the same philosophy as treatments like microneedling, which stimulates collagen production by creating micro-traumas to the skin. However, the Plasma Pen penetrates deeper into the skin’s layers than other treatments, providing more effective results.
What Are the Benefits of the Plasma Pen?
There are many benefits to Plasma Pen skin tightening and wrinkle treatments, including:
- No anesthesia
- Minimal downtime and recovery
- Tighter skin
- Improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin texture
- Reduced stretch marks
- Reduced age spots and sun spots
- More volume for lips
- No cutting or scarring
- Long-lasting results
Many of the aesthetic benefits of the Plasma Pen would otherwise require multiple cosmetic procedures.
When Will I See Plasma Pen Treatment Results?
Plasma Pen treatments offer some immediate skin tightening benefits, but realizing the full results of your procedure can take up to a few months. Because the Plasma Pen provides multiple benefits, the results come in phases.
Typically, as soon as the scabbing or carbon crusts of the treatment fall off, patients see tightened and rejuvenated skin. Then, as the collagen and elastin in the skin build up in reaction to the micro-injuries caused by the Plasma Pen, you’ll continue to see results.
Some patients only need one Plasma Pen treatment to see their optimal results. However, patients with more prominent signs of aging may require two to three treatments to achieve their skin rejuvenation goals.
How Long Do Plasma Pen Results Last?
Fibroblasting, the technique behind the Plasma Pen, is more than just a wrinkle treatment. The procedure reduces the skin’s volume, making it tighter and decreasing its laxity.
Plasma Pen results last as long as invasive surgery results. However, just like any aesthetic procedure, your skin will continue to age normally. Many patients return for follow-up treatments after three to five years to rejuvenate their skin again.
Ensuring you eat a healthy diet, hydrate, avoid smoking and pollution, and protect your skin from UV rays allows your skin to stay youthful for as long as possible.
What Are Common Plasma Pen Treatment Areas?
The Plasma Pen’s fibroblasting technology makes it an asset in many skin tightening, smoothing, and rejuvenating efforts. In addition, it serves a significant function in anti-aging treatments without invasive surgery.
Patients with mild to moderate excess skin choose the Plasma Pen for treating the face, jowls, or neck. However, the versatility of the Plasma Pen also allows for its use on sagging arm skin or loose belly skin that occurs from aging or weight loss.
Eye puffiness, hooded lids, and drooping bags under the eyes are all successfully treated with the Plasma Pen’s fibroblasting. In addition, some patients find the results of eye treatments with the Plasma Pen so dramatic that it serves as a viable alternative to eye lift surgery.
Fine Line and Wrinkle Treatment
Crow’s feet, accordion lines, furrows, laugh lines, marionette lines, and creased brows all see improvement through Plasma Pen treatments. Lines lose their depth as the skin tightens, and collagen stimulation provides structure to the underlying layers of skin.
Increased collagen and skin tightening allow for shrinking scars and lightening in the contrast and sag of stretch marks.
The Plasma Pen serves as a treatment option for spider veins, the twisted blood vessels that lie at the skin’s surface, creating thin red lines.
Skin growths, known as skin tags or milia, are white bumps underneath the skin’s surface that form from trapped dead skin cells. They are quickly eliminated through Plasma Pen treatments.
Am I a Candidate for Plasma Pen Treatments?
The Plasma Pen is safe for most healthy adults looking to rejuvenate their skin in a non-invasive procedure. However, some serious medical conditions may disqualify you from Plasma Pen treatments.
