The Plasma revolution is well and truly here.
Over 5,000 clinics and counting worldwide are offering their clients skin-tightening skincare solutions using the Plasma Pen – the industry-leading fibroblasting device.
Plasma Pen is offering patients long-lasting, anti-aging treatments, without the need for surgery.
But does it really work?
How Plasma Pen Works
This innovative technology utilises plasma, formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses, to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres and collagen production.
This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove the excess skin, thereby avoiding all risks inherent to the traditional intervention.
The treatment is performed through minute spots made with a pen-type device at a certain distance to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibres.
Each of these spots sublimates the superficial coenocytes without affecting the basal lamina and without causing bleeding. More importantly, no damage is caused to the surrounding tissue or the tissue beneath the skin.
Who Can (and can’t) Have the Treatment?
Due to the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, it is recommended that Plasma Pen treatments are not used on skins darker than a Fitzpatrick 3.
As taught in the Plasma Pen foundation and advanced training courses, it is also advised that pregnant women, people with cancer, pacemakers, diabetes, epilepsy, or a fever should not have the treatment.
Is Plasma Pen Safe?
The short answer is yes, with the correct device, administered by a trained professional, Plasma Pen treatments are completely safe.
There are potential risks of hyperpigmentation post-treatment if the correct aftercare programme is not put in place.
This means it is imperative that the client follows the clinician’s advice, which will include avoiding sunlight for up to 14 days and avoiding picking the scabs to let them naturally heal instead.
What are the Most Popular Treatments using Plasma Pen?
One of the most popular treatments is upper and lower blepharoplasty, which focuses on the eyelids.
There are many treatments areas which the Plasma Pen can effectively take on, such as the removal of skin tags, stretch mark reduction, acne scarring regeneration, age spot easing, hyperpigmentation correction, lip lines, forehead lines, neck and face lift, as well as large areas on the body.
Plasma Pen: How Fast are Results?
Plasma Pen results can vary on the individual and how their body responds to healing.
Most people will see tighter skin right away, but the production of new collagen means best results will come into effect after two months.
Impressively, results can last for up to three years, with just one treatment typically needed.
Plasma Pen’s revolutionary technology is changing the game for skincare due to its effectiveness without the need for surgery.
There is some downtime needed post-treatment, and some extra care needed with aftercare e.g., avoiding too much exposure to sunlight; but it comes as a small price to pay for up to three years of impressive anti-aging results.
Expect the Plasma Pen revolution to continue picking up speed for many years to come as a next-level cosmetic skincare solution.
