Physician’s Center for Beauty is proud to offer advanced, non-surgical skin tightening treatment using the Plasma Pen. This groundbreaking device produces noticeable improvements in skin tone, texture and fine lines without incisions, injections, stitches or prolonged downtime. The results appear quickly and continue to progressively improve in the weeks following treatment.
How Does Plasma Pen Work?
The Plasma Pen is a minimally invasive device that non-surgically resurfaces and rejuvenates tired, aged-looking skin. Plasma Pen technology converts electrical energy into a plasma gas stream and aims it at the skin requiring rejuvenation. Instead of making direct contact with the skin, the plasma gas stream hovers approximately one millimeter above it. There is no cutting or suturing of the skin required.
The plasma gas heats the targeted skin and causes the tissues to contract and tighten. “Crepe-y” skin is improved and wrinkles become less visible. Additionally, the plasma gas stream triggers the production of new collagen and elastin. As the body’s collagen and elastin reserves replenish, the skin looks brighter and more youthful.
Benefits of Plasma Pen Skin Tightening
Plasma Pen treatment is ideal for improving the appearance of thin, lined, “crepe-y” skin around the eyes, mouth, cheeks or neck. The most common treatment areas are the corners of the eyes, which are prone to developing crow’s feet, as well as lines around the lips. The Plasma Pen can also make a positive difference when used virtually anywhere else on the face or body that requires skin rejuvenation.
Plasma Pen Skin Tightening Treatment Details
Plasma Pen treatment is minimally invasive and involves minimal pain. Our team applies a topical numbing cream to the target treatment area to reduce discomfort. Injections of local anesthetic may also be used Most patients feel nothing more than small pinprick sensations as the Plasma Pen works.
The treatment itself takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being addressed and the severity of the skin issue(s). Some patients opt for more than one treatment session, based on their ultimate skin rejuvenation goals.
Plasma Pen Recovery
After Plasma Pen treatment, bruising, swelling and scabbing of the skin is to be expected. Our team provides comprehensive aftercare instructions and a timeframe for resuming normal activities such as socializing and exercise. Generally, there is little downtime after Plasma Pen treatment.
