What is it?
Plasma pen is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that achieves results previously only possible through surgery (blepharoplasty). As we age, our skins dermal layer gradually thins and our elastin fibres fatigue. Over time, these changes in our skins structure cause the skin to lose texture, wrinkle and sag. Plasma Pen can mitigate these effects and reverse the process of wrinkling and sagging, creating a dramatically more youthful look.
How does it work/What should I expect?
A typical appointment will last about an hour, including the application of the numbing cream.
Plasma pen works on the principle of ionised gas in the air. Inside the plasma pen and at the correct distance from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen combine, creating electrostatic energy that is subsequently transferred to the skins surface as a flash of plasma.
The plasma pen forces an immediate contraction of the skin tissue and thermal disruption to the dermal solar elastosis and fibroblasts. This reaction causes the skin cells to reconstruct, increasing the production of collagen and neo-collagenisation.
The heat disruption will also cause excess skin to dry and fall off in the form of tiny scabs/flakes within a few days of the treatment.
How long will the results last and how soon will I notice them?
Results are always dependent on the individual, as everyone reacts differently to treatments. However, noticeable results can be seen immediately after the treatment. These results also continue over time as the micro trauma caused by the treatment stimulates production of collagen for a significant amount of time after the treatment. The results improve over 2-3 months after the treatment, with effects lasting 3 years, and many being permanent.
During your consultation the specialist will talk you through any pre-care steps, however below are the main ones.
