Plasma Pen Skin Tightening
The fibroblast stimulating treatment causes a ‘micro trauma’ to the surface skin tissue to immediately contract and tighten, this creates an instant lift and dramatic skin tightening. As a result, the epidermis is rejuvenated as old cells are caused to shed and they are replaced by fresh new cells. Fibroblasts in the dermis are also targeted by thermal disruption and as a result collagen and elastin production, alignment and cross linking is stimulated. This strengthens, plumps, inflates and lifts the structure of the skin over a sustained period of time. In addition, Plasma Pen helps to re-shape, re-build and strengthen the scaffolding within the dermis to give it renewed elasticity and flexibility.
Plasma Pen is non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, and sagging, dull skin.
HOW DOES PLASMA PEN WORK?
As the gas enters the device through this cord it flows across a special combination of electrodes within the nozzle, which are fed by a high voltage power supply. The voltage between the electrodes ionises the gas, creating a plasma. The skin tissue to contract virtually immediately by thermally disrupting the skin as well as fibroblasts. This micro-trauma stimulates new collagen (neocollagenesis) and helps release and activate essential proteins and growth factors like cytokines and fibroblasts, which makes more collagen than before it was disrupted. Eventually, excess skin dries off to form tiny crusts that fall off like dandruff in just a few days. New collagen is formed over a period of up to 6 months as a result of the plasma pen treatment.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH PLASMA PEN FIBROBLAST?
At Modern Skin Clinic in Charlotte NC, we mainly use this Plasma Pen Fibroblast treatment to remedy skin blemishes in several areas and for treating a variety of conditions as stipulated below;
- Skin tightening of saggy eyelids in the upper and lower section.
- Treating skin lesions such as skin tags, moles, skin tags, warts, papilloma & xanthelasma, fibromas, seborrhoea, and keratosis.
- Wrinkles on the face such as crows, frown lines, necklines and smoker’s lines.
- Scarring including stretch marks, acne scars, and post-surgical scars.
- Uneven skin pigmentation, age spots on the face or hands, sun spots, chloasma, freckles, and melasma.
The results of the Plasma pen treatment are permanent and may be visible for years. But the aging process is continuous and therefore the skin ages every day after the procedure and this cannot be stopped. The results of this method are permanent, but when we talk about mimic facial lines these may re-appear because muscles are stronger than the skin.
