What is Plasma Pen?

This is an FDA and CE approved device used for cosmetic skin rejuvenation. Plasma Pen offers patients a wealth of skin improvements all within one handheld device. Sometimes called Plasma Lift Tightening, it’s totally non surgical and can be completed in clinic.

How can Plasma Pen improve your appearance?

The device can be used for skin lifting, skin tightening, improving dull skin and smoothing skin. It’s ideal for reducing ageing signs such as wrinkles and can help improve sagging skin that needs a boost. It’s also suitable for treating some cases of acne scarring.

Where is Plasma Pen most effective?

This treatment is most suitable for the face and décolletage. A consultation is required to make sure you’re a suitable candidate for facial rejuvenation treatments with this device but for most patients it can offer reliable, safe results.

What happens during Plasma Pen treatments?

A full medical history and clinical examination will be performed and a diagnosis made prior to recommending and administering the treatment. The Plasma Pen hand piece converts electrical energy into an electrostatic energy to create artificial nitrogen plasma.

Inside the Plasma Pen device, an electrical discharge is made by introducing voltage between two electrodes separated by a “dielectric barrier”. During the plasma treatment, the charge collects on the surface of the barrier; a gaseous release of ionized plasma gas is safely released from about 1mm above the skin.

This purposely creates a micro-trauma to the skin which comprises a superficial damage to the epidermis and then, concurrently, a second zone especially to the fibroblasts. That’s why we often call the treatment fibroblasting.

You need to book a consultation before undergoing Plasma Pen treatments or any of our anti ageing treatments such as dermal fillers.

What are the benefits of this treatment?

This device helps to smooth, plump and rejuvenate the skin in the weeks and months after treatment takes place. Fine lines and deeper wrinkles can be targeted and acne scarring reduced.

It’s essentially a useful technique for encouraging new cell growth. For some patients, a combination of skin rejuvenation treatments may be the ideal solution, so it’s important to book a consultation.

Is a treatment with Plasma Pen painful?

Side effects are minimal, but it’s an anti ageing and skin rejuvenating treatment that may have some side effects for a week or so. Our patients report few side effects, as the treatment is effective without being aggressive. Ask us for more information.

What is the recovery from this treatment like?

For most patients, initial results are visible directly after treatment. In the initial stages of healing, small dry spots (we call these echars) may form on the skin and remain there for about a week before falling off. This is normal and temporary, but you shouldn’t pick at them.

Plasma Pen skin tightening has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its minimally-invasive nature, but the majority of patients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment.

How often do I need treatments?

Treatment sessions should be spaced out by 8 weeks. There will be changes to the skin within the first week after treatment, but up to 3 years after it too.
