The Science Behind PlasmaPen

Discover The Science That Makes PlasmaPen a Work of Art

How does the PlasmaPen Work?

The PlasmaPen utilizes innovative plasma technology to achieve consistent results. Plasma is formed through the ionization of atmospheric gasses, stimulating instantaneous contraction and tightening of skin fibers and collagen production during treatment. This technology does not require the use of a scalpel or laser to remove excess skin. Therefore, the PlasmaPen avoids the majority of risk that’s assumed when performing invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures.

Treatment with the PlasmaPen is performed through minute spots made at a certain distance to stimulate the instant contraction and tightening of skin fibers. Each of the spots made sublimates the superficial coenocytes without affecting the basal lamina and causing bleeding. Most importantly, no damage is caused to the surrounding tissue or the tissue laying beneath the skin.

While the PlasmaPen cannot completely halt the aging process, results are long lasting. New lines and wrinkles that appear on patients after an initial treatment process should only require a quick revision.

The PlasmaPen Treatment Process

Step 1

Precision plasma arc causes immediate superficial micro-trauma to the upper epidermal layer of the skin.

Step 2

Micro-traumas stimulate the healing process for the creation of new, rejuvenated, tight, and smooth skin tissue over the next 12 weeks.

Step 3

Collagen and elastin are produced following treatment, plumping the structure of the skin to soften and eliminate lines and wrinkles.

Paving the Way for the Future of Fibroblasting Treatments

Our innovative PlasmaPen device converts electrical energy into electrostatic energy to create nitrogen plasma gas. PlasmaPen technicians can change the settings on their PlasmaPen Ultra and PlasmaPen Platinum device to suit their clients individual needs and skin type.

Our impressive, in-depth PlasmaPen Treatment Masterclasses give you the skills and knowledge needed to be able to safely administer advanced PlasmaPen treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Optimal Results

Following PlasmaPen treatment, the treated area is visibly smoother, the skin is plump and rejuvenated. Any acne scarring is smoothed and more polished-looking. Fine lines and deeper lines are ironed out.

Little Downtime

Depending on the size of the PlasmaPen treatment area, patients can expect as little as a 4-7 days of downtime after their treatment.


Fibroblasts are of crucial importance to tissue repair. Our dermis consists of a network of Type I Collagen fibers, Elastin fibers, and Hyaluronic Acid, all of which are secreted by fibroblasts. Together they form the Extracellular Matrix (ECM) – a vital part of our skin’s structure.


Fibroblasts deposit Type 3 Collagen at the site of the superficial trauma caused by the PlasmaPen treatment. This allows the skin to start the healing process. These fibroblasts produce a new Extra Celluar Matrix (ECM) and this developing ECM consists of Type 3 Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and Elastin. Over the next 12 weeks, this Type 3 Collagen is replaced by Type 1 collagen, as the wound fully closes, unveiling fresher and more youthful-looking skin.
