If you would like to know more about Plasma Pen treatments, contact us online or call us. 

What is a Plasma Pen?

The Plasma Pen treatment is a minimally invasive, no-contact treatment that is FDA-approved to tighten your skin. Unlike a facelift, there are no incisions, stitches, or extended healing periods. You can rejuvenate your skin and look younger without using surgical methods. The Plasma Pen can treat any area that has loose or sagging skin. It can help to combat the following:

Drooping or sagging eyes

Bags under the eye

Excess skin on the face, neck, and body as a result of aging, medical conditions, and weight loss. 

Smile lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth 

Vertical lines at the corners of the mouth

Crow’s feet


Forehead lines 

Sagging jowls

Stretch marks from weight loss or pregnancy 

White bumps with dead cells beneath your skin

Spider veins 

Acne scars

Injury or accident scars

How Does the Plasma Pen Treatment Work?

The Plasma Pen never makes contact with your skin. The treatment works with a device that uses a small electric charge to release plasma gas. This plasma gas will vaporize excess skin with a tiny dot on the area you want to be treated. The dots map the area that needs tightening according to your desired outcome. The electric charge stimulates cellular activity to produce more collagen and regenerate your cells. This is known as fibroblasting. Your skin will instantly tighten and continue to tighten over the next three months. 

The Benefits of Plasma Pen Therapy

The Plasma Pen can treat a wide range of skin conditions. The Plasma Pen is highly effective at:

Improving skin tone, laxity, and texture.

Tightening loose or excess skin.

Reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Stimulating collagen and elastin production. 

Fibroblast Plasma Therapy

The Plasma Pen session should take between 1 to 2 hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. We will start the session by applying a topical numbing cream to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. We will then proceed with the fibroblast plasma therapy. We will apply more numbing cream in between to ensure your comfort. 

You should not experience severe pain or discomfort during the procedure as a result of the prescription-grade numbing cream. Most patients agree they can relax during the procedure with little to no pain. 

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Plasma Pen Skin Tightening?

Anyone that wants to eliminate loose skin or scars and restore their youthful skin. Plasma Pen treatments are safe and effective with minimal downtime. If you would like to know more about the Plasma Pen, visit us for a consultation. This is also a great time to assess your medical history to ensure that you have no chronic conditions that would complicate the process. You can use this session to ask questions about the procedure and describe your desired Plasma Pen results. 

How Many Plasma Pen Treatments Will I Need?

The number of sessions needed depends on your desired results. Some patients are satisfied with the results after one treatment, while others feel they need more. It may also be more effective if you combine your Plasma Pen treatment with other non-surgical treatments to help you reach your goal. Plasma Pen can be paired with dermal fillers, chemical peels, microcurrent facials, and other skin rejuvenating treatments. We can recommend a suitable combination during your consultation. If you are not satisfied with the results after one session, we can perform another treatment twelve weeks later. Plasma Pen results are permanent. However, we can’t stop the effects of aging. If your skin sags or droops as a result of aging, you can return for another Plasma Pen treatment. Results can last up to four years.

How Can You Prepare for Your Fibroblast Plasma Therapy?

During your initial consultation, we will provide a list of instructions to help you prepare for your Plasma Pen treatment. It is best to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds that could lead to sunburn before your treatment. You will have to remove false eyelashes, lash extensions, and contact lenses before the treatment. We will also provide a list of skincare products that you should stop using four weeks before your scheduled session. 

Plasma Pen Treatment Aftercare

Once the procedure is complete, we will also provide aftercare instructions to ensure successful and comfortable results. Keep the treated area dry and makeup-free until the scabs heal, and do not pull the scabs off. Allow them to fall off on their own. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear sunscreen when you are exposed.
