As we age, the dermal layer of our skin becomes thinner, less collagen is produced, and the
elastin fibers that provide elasticity wear out. These changes in your skin cause wrinkles and
sagging that is impossible to control. But, the Plasma Pen treatment can significantly
tighten, lift, resurface, and regenerate almost any area of the skin. It is the most
cost-effective and highly compelling alternative to all other cosmetic surgeries.
plasma pen facts
Unlike laser treatment, the interaction of our nitrogen plasma with tissue is
non-chromophore dependent. This means that the plasma is not reliant on interacting with
our molecules that
control skin color. Instead, we deliver predictable and fully controlled energy to the
skin’s architecture and avoid the excessive collateral thermal injury associated with
ablative and chromophore dependent laser tissue interaction.
In further contrast to lasers and ablative resurfacing, our treatment is completely
uniform. It does not damage surrounding tissue. The architecture of the skin remains
fully intact immediately after our nitrogen plasma is delivered. There’s no thinning of
the skin and no open wound.
When the Plasma Pen is used, a process called Neoepithelialisation takes place, which is the
formation of new epithelial tissue. The after effects become visible as tiny carbon molecules
crust up and flake away soon after the procedure. This flaking is typically complete within 3 to
7 days after the treatment.
The Plasma Pen also invokes an inflammatory response that occurs during the healing process.
But, your body naturally activates cells called M2 Macrophages, which are white blood cells that
engulf and digest cellular debris caused by the Plasma Pen. Put simply, the small wounds to your
skin are repaired by your body’s natural defense mechanisms, and when they start working,
exciting things happen to the areas where we used the Plasma Pen, such as the formation of new
blood vessels, the growth of “cytokines” (protein), and a strengthened immune system. The best
part is, your body does this on its own, and you’ll never know it!
