Plasma Pen Treatment

The Plasma Pen Treatment reduces the signs of facial aging without invasive surgery. With The Plasma Pen Treatment, we target your most wrinkle-prone areas of the face to resurface and stimulate the skin resulting in a reduction of wrinkles in those regions. The Plasma Pen Treatment is very successful in improving skin laxity, texture, tone and acne scars.


What does The Plasma Pen Treatment do?

The Plasma Pen Treatment works to improve skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep skin firm and elastic. This treatment is also called fibroblast therapy, or “fibroblasting,” because it stimulates the fibroblast cells that make new collagen and elastin.


What is The Plasma Pen Treatment used for?

The Plasma Pen Treatment is an excellent alternative to surgery for targeting those delicate and sensitive areas such as fine lines around the eyes and lips. The most popular uses of The Plasma Pen Treatment includes the areas around the eyes consisting of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids and crow’s feet.   The Plasma Pen Treatment is also very successful with minimizing lines around the mouth called nasolabial folds.


How does The Plasma Pen Treatment work?

The Plasma Pen Treatment is highly controlled and targeted to a specific treatment area. This hand-held, pen-like device is held above the skin’s surface during treatment and never comes into contact with the skin. Rather, it works by emitting plasma energy, creating a micro-injury in the top layer of skin as well as heating up the dermis, where it causes collagen fibers to contract.

The plasma energy treatment creates tiny, superficial brown carbon crusts (dots) in the skin, which typically last three to five days before falling off naturally. These controlled microinjuries promote a long-term firming, tightening and smoothing through the skin’s own natural healing response.


What Skin Tone works best for The Plasma Pen Treatment

Skin tones 1-3 on the Fitzpatrick scale will see the best results of The Plasma Pen Treatment.  We don’t recommend this service for skin tones darker than a 4 on the Fitzpatrick scale.  Call Hall and Wrye to find out if you are a good candidate.


When will I see the benefits of The Plasma Pen Treatment?

The Plasma Pen Treatment creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which results in some immediate firming. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, triggering the growth of new collagen and elastin in the weeks and months following treatment. Treated skin will continue to gradually improve over three to six months.


What are the side effects of The Plasma Pen Treatment?

The Plasma Pen Treatment has low risk of side effects and minimal downtime when compared to more invasive surgical options.

Aftercare is extremely important to achieve the desired results.  The skin is essentially new skin and should be treated like an infant in the sun. Sunscreen is extremely important during the healing process.  When the carbon crusts have fallen off, patients must be using sunscreen and re-applying every 2 hours.  The healing process is the crux of this treatment’s efficiency.  Therefore, it is crucial to be following appropriate aftercare regimen.  Steer clear of any products that have not been approved by your aesthetician, as even the most seemingly benign ingredients – active or inactive – could irritate the skin and after results.
