Plasma Pen treatment

What is plasma pen treatment?

Plasma pen treatment is one of the many innovative services offered at Skin Med Spa aimed at improving your appearance. The premier medical spa is the only practice in the area using the Plaxel plasma pen for treatment. 

The Plaxel plasma device is the only true plasma device on the market. Though other devices call themselves “plasma pen,” they’re only fancy electrocautery devices with thermal modalities that can only treat Fitzpatrick skin types I (pale white), II (fair white), and III (darker white).

The Plaxel plasma pen uses true plasma technology with cold plasma capability, which means it’s safe and effective for all skin types. 

What areas of the skin benefit from plasma pen treatment?

Skin Med Spa uses plasma pen treatment for skin tightening, retexturing, and smoothing. Some of the treatment areas include:

  • Upper and lower eyelid (nonsurgical blepharoplasty)
  • Face
  • Décolletage (low neckline)
  • Hands
  • Knees

The aesthetic experts at Skin Med Spa use plasma pen treatment to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, correct acne scars and stretch marks, and lighten sun-damaged or hyperpigmented skin. 

How does plasma pen treatment work?

With the Plaxel plasma pen, your provider uses plasma technology to target the fibroblast cells found in the dermal layer of your skin, which is just below the surface layer.

The fibroblast cells produce collagen and elastin, which are the proteins that keep your skin strong and resilient. As you get older, the production of these proteins slows down, which is a primary contributor to facial aging.

Your fibroblast cells also play a major role in wound healing and help keep your skin firm and tight. 

The tip of the Plaxel plasma pen never touches your skin, but releases the plasma current above the targeted area, which creates a microtear in the surface layer of your skin. The thermal damage produced by the plasma pen treatment works by:

  • Breaking down skin proteins
  • Encouraging cell and tissue regeneration
  • Activating fibroblast cells
  • Contracting cells to tighten the skin

Plasma pen treatment not only rejuvenates your look, but may also prevent or delay your need for more invasive procedures, such as a surgical facelift.
