What is plasma?

First off, you might be wondering what this magical ‘plasma’ substance actually is.

Without getting too scientific, plasma is a state of matter – just like solids, liquids and gases – that’s created when energy and gas collide. It reacts to your body’s electrical charge, which means that when plasma gets close to the surface of your skin, a small burst of energy is created.

What does the Plasma Pen do?

Mostly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten sagging skin, the Plasma Pen really can work wonders on your complexion.

How does Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment work?

The Plasma Pen is a clever handheld device that harnesses energy found in the air to create its very own source of plasma energy.

The pen doesn’t need to touch your skin to have an effect. It’s instead held a millimetre from the skin’s surface – close enough to create a small stream of energy as the plasma reacts to your body’s electrical charge.

Every time this stream of energy, known as the ‘plasma arc’, makes contact with your skin a tiny scab is formed, while the area around the scab is instantly tightened. After the Plasma Pen has created a series of small scabs in the area of skin you’re targeting, the scabs will soon fall off to reveal your new, tightened skin.

The best bit? The heat from the plasma arc also boosts your skin’s production of collagen in the affected area, meaning that your skin will continue to tighten months after you leave the clinic!

Is the treatment painful?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different, so what one person might find painful another might hardly notice. Generally speaking though, Plasma Pen fibroblast treatments are considered mildly to moderately uncomfortable.

Some areas, like around the eyes, are more sensitive than others, but a numbing cream can often be used to soothe any pain.

How long does the treatment last?

One of the main reasons why Plasma Pen fibroblast treatments are so popular is because you often only need one treatment to see the change you’ve been looking for. 

Yes, you read that right. The effects of the treatment are permanent, so although it’s possible to book in an additional session three months after your first, many people only return for a top-up three or four years down the line as they age.

How long does a Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment take to heal?

The aftercare following a Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment is straightforward – another reason why the treatment is so popular. 

The tiny scabs that form at each point the Plasma Pen hits will start falling away after about three days, but could take up to a week to completely clear.

Are there any side effects?

Fortunately, if performed by a trusted and reputable clinic, the side effects of a Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment are usually pretty minimal. 

If the treatment has been applied to your eye area, you can expect some light swelling and redness which will disappear after three to four days.

As is usually the case with scabbing, the affected area might also feel itchy for a few days after your treatment. Don’t worry: you’ll be given some products in your aftercare package which will help alleviate any discomfort you might feel.

Is a Plasma Pen treatment better than Botox?

Plasma Pen fibroblast treatments are now being considered as an alternative to Botox, mainly because they make up for the ‘celebrity’ cosmetic treatment’s shortcomings.

First off, whilst the effects of Botox only last several months, the tightened skin you’re left with after a Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment will stick around for up to three years – saving you money and time spent in the clinic.

There are fewer side effects too. Although both treatments share the potential for swelling and redness, choosing a Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment over Botox means avoiding the possibility of the latter’s nasty adverse reactions, which can include a dry mouth, neck pain, muscle spasms and droopy eyelids.

And lastly, we all know that Botox has a reputation for travelling beyond where you intended it to go. You won’t have to worry about that with the Plasma Pen; the Pen’s precision allows for more accuracy, meaning you get exactly what you ask for.
