PLASMA TREATMENT

PLASMA TREATMENT

Plasma Pen treatment is a non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation treatment. It significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces, and regenerates practically any area of the skin. The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved, CE approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy, a technique used to stimulate production of collagen in the skin.

Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen and transmits that energized gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as fibroblasting. You will typically see immediate tightening along with cumulative improvements over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin. In some cases, it may require more than one session depending on the desired results.

Long lasting results – usually around 2 years. Plasma Pen skin tightening results are impressive but should not be proposed as an alternative to surgery in cases of severe skin laxity.

IS THE PLASMA PEN TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Plasma Pen is mildly to moderately uncomfortable. Everyone’s pain level is different and some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. The area to be treated is numbed before treatment takes place so there is minimal to no pain.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE PLASMA PEN TREATMENT?

The Plasma Pen is a relatively safe treatment, particularly when compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures. However, no procedure is without risks and it’s important to review and understand the contraindications and risks. Risks include:

Swelling and bruising

Scabbing and crusting

Skin discoloration

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Fat/water retention not loose skin

Pregnancy, Breast feeding

Keloid scars

Regular cold sores

Skin cancer

Vitiligo

Hyperpigmentation

Skin Fitzpatrick 5 or above

Epilepsy

HIV/AIDS/Autoimmune deficiencies

 

WHAT DOWNTIME CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY PLASMA PEN TREATMENT?

Everyone is different but generally there is swelling, crusting and general tightness which can be a bit tender for about 5 days.

Average of 8 days downtime on the face and neck areas

Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 3

After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form.

Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck)

 

PLASMA PEN AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS:

We do not advise using make up to conceal the treated area as applying anything to the skin can hinder the healing process and could cause an infection. No drinking alcohol and no picking/scrubbing the treated area.
