The plasma pen treatment is a skin tightening procedure that is non-invasive, focusing on the top layer of skin. It can reduce fine lines, sagging skin, and other facial imperfections like acne scars, sun spots, cherry angiomas, skin tags, small moles. and stretch marks. This is an FDA-approved device that can deliver wrinkle reduction without the cost and long recovery time of invasive plastic surgery.
Are You A Good Candidate?
After treatment, you will see a noticeable difference in your skin. Emerging marionette lines around your mouth and the crow’s feet surrounding your eyes will be less noticeable. Fibroblasting your problem areas can help you regain your confidence and feel more comfortable in your skin.
The treatment can help solve several skin imperfections. The best candidates have a low Fitzpatrick level (I-III); these are people with a lighter skin tone. People with darker skin tones may not be good candidates due to a higher risk of hyper or hypopigmentation.
How It Works
The plasma pen is the tool used in fibroblast treatment, and it stimulates fibroblast cellular activity. The fibroblast is the cell in your skin that produces collagen. The pen uses a controlled electric charge that emits plasma gas that vaporizes excess skin. The pen will create a tiny dot on the skin in the designated treatment area.
Before the treatment, you will have a consultation to discuss the areas of the body you want to target. During your consultation before the treatment, a trained professional will work with you to make sure you get the best results possible.
It will also help the esthetician know more about you and your skin goals after the treatment. At this consultation, you will be given the plasma pen cost to treat the affected area of your body.
The plasma pen skin tightening treatment can take up to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. Once there, the esthetician will apply a numbing cream to the area being targeted. This will prevent any discomfort during the procedure.
The plasma is a gas that heats and disrupts down to the dermal layers of skin. The pen causes micro-injury to the skin tissue that promotes the growth of new skin. The skin will be removed, forming tiny scabs that will protect the skin from infection.
The Days Following Your Treatment
After the treatment, our team will provide you with a set of care instructions to follow. Some good tips are to avoid direct sunlight on treated areas for at least 48 hours. If you go out into the sun, make sure you keep the treated area covered, and remember to apply sunscreen.
Avoid retinols and any exfoliators. Using an exfoliator can lead to tears in the skin that could cause infection. Your skin should remain hydrated. An excellent ZO skincare recovery cream can be used immediately after for hydration and healing.
It is crucial not to pick at your skin after the procedure. Do not remove the scabs; instead, let them heal naturally. Moisturize the treated area twice a day and keep it protected with sunscreen to heal your face quicker. Once the scabs have healed, you can return to your usual skincare routine.
Specific lifestyle changes can increase the longevity of the results. By staying out of the sun and applying sunscreen, you can protect your skin from future damage. Improving how you take care of your skin can prevent any new lines from forming on your body. Making sure skin is hydrated is the best way to avoid wrinkles and keep a youthful look longer.
