WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES a PLASMA PEN TREATMENT WORK? +
The device operates at a distance of approximately 1mm above the surface of the skin and creates a minuscule electrical arc at its tip. This arc is called the plasma arc. When the plasma arc touches the skin, it vaporises a micromillimeter-sized dot on the skin’s surface. This process is called sublimation. This enables the treatment imprint to be wider and shallower than traditional dermal only devices. This dot minimally tightens the skin in its vicinity. Several points applied together create a “reduction grid”. Through the application of grids in specific patterns, excess skin is tightened.
WHAT DOES a PLASMA PEN DO? +
The Plasma Pen helps spectacularly improves skin tone, brightness, laxity and texture and lifts and tightens loose skin. The extensive dermal and epidermal remodelling it stimulates (which includes neocollagenesis, neoelastogenesis and neoepithelialisation) leads to a dramatic reduction/elimination of photoageing and superficial wrinkles, the partial to complete elimination of medium-depth wrinkles and a marked improvement, plumping and softening of deep wrinkles. This is an especially gentle and low-pain procedure.
how many plasma pen treatments will i need? +
You can see results from 1 treatment but patients usually require 1-3 treatments for optimal results
WHO WILL THE PLASMA PEN BENEFIT? +
Plasma pen is not suitable for all skin types, so we will often ask to carry out a test area in advance of your full treatment to make sure it is right for you. Plasma Pen can benefit anyone who is looking for:
- Skin tightening: Upper and lower lids, Soft Facelift, throat and tummy lift
- Reduction of wrinkles and uneven surfaces: e.g. perioral wrinkles, worry lines, nasolabial folds, forehead
- Reduction of unsightly pigmentation: e.g. age/sun spots, liver spots, moles
- Scar reduction/improvement
- Removal or correction of permanent make-up, skin tags and small tattoos
WILL I NEED TO COVER UP AFTER TREATMENT? +
The plasma pen is a great treatment for the right person, but you must be prepared for 1-2 weeks recovery time whilst the swelling settles and the small scabs (in a pattern of dots) fall away. You can plan this tactically - consider having a treatment to your arms, legs or body during the cooler seasons when you can cover up more easily. Similarly, neck treatments are great in the autumn or winter when you can hide the treated areas with a scarf, and the eyelids are best treated in the summer when you can hide behind sunglasses.
