Plasma Pen

What is a plasma pen?

A plasma pen is a medical device used in the skincare and beauty industry. It is a handheld electrical device that uses high frequency plasma to create small electrical arcs that are directed at the surface of the skin. These arcs generate heat that is used to vaporize or damage the top layer of the skin, the epidermis.
The process performed with a plasma pen is often referred to as "plasma lifting". The treatment stimulates the skin's structure and the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars and age spots is improved.

How does the plasma pen work?

With plasma technology, the planoplas plasma pen develops a tiny plasma flash from ionized atmospheric atoms and molecules in our ambient air (oxygen and nitrogen), which jumps to the skin. This enables controlled, pain-free ablation of the skin and at the same time promotes scar-free healing. This technology enables an effective and long-lasting tightening effect. The precision of the planoplas plasma pen enables excellent results. Deep tissue is not damaged and the treated area heals quickly.

The treatment

Before the treatment begins, a detailed consultation and assessment of the skin condition and the area to be treated is carried out. An anesthetic cream is first applied to the selected area. After a short exposure time, the practitioner begins to create small dots on the skin in a specific pattern. This process triggers the tightening reaction. The tissue is stimulated and contracts at the same time.

Depending on the starting point of the skin condition and skin age, 1 - 3 sessions are recommended, which are carried out at intervals of 6 - 10 weeks. In order to be able to estimate the number of treatments, it is very important to assess the affected skin area in advance.

What is a plasma pen?

A plasma pen is an innovative device based on plasma technology. By converting the ambient air, the plasma pen generates a punctual heat source. This heat acts on the skin, removing it in a tiny area and causing the skin to shrink. The Plasma Pen is used to treat drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes. Excess skin is removed in a targeted and controlled manner. The treatment stimulates the body's self-healing powers and leads to a tightening of the tissue.

Where can the plasma pen be used?

The plasma pen is used to treat drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes. Targeted and controlled removal of excess skin stimulates the body's self-healing powers and tightens the tissue. Tiny injuries on the surface of the skin lead to visibly firmer skin after the healing phase.

How many treatments are required?

As a rule, 1-2 treatments are required, depending on the extent of the excess skin and the client's individual body condition.

What complications can occur?

Possible complications include swelling, crust formation, reddening of the skin and, rarely, an unsatisfactory result with very pronounced drooping eyelids or wrinkles. Wound infections, wound healing disorders, scarring and pigmentation disorders are extremely rare.
