What Is a Plasma Pen Skin Tightening Treatment?

Skin Tightening

Aging comes with lots of wrinkles, bumps, and scars that most people would rather not have. Luckily, at Franklin Skin and Laser in Franklin, TN, we offer dozens of cosmetic treatments to treat practically every sign of aging. 

You’re probably familiar with the treatments that have gained a lot of mainstream popularity, such as microneedling and injectables. But for many people, the Plasma Pen is the unsung hero of the cosmetic world. 

What Is a Plasma Pen?

A Plasma Pen is a small, handheld device used during fibroblast plasma therapy to non-surgically lift, tighten, and rejuvenate skin. Plasma Pen is FDA-approved, and the no-touch treatment process provides an additional layer of protection for your health. 

How Does Plasma Pen Skin Tightening Work? 

During Plasma Pen skin tightening, we hold the Plasma Pen just above the treatment area, never touching the tip to your skin. The pen discharges a burst of high-frequency electricity that creates an arc of plasma that travels to the treatment area and creates controlled micro-injuries. 

These micro-injuries stimulate your body’s natural healing process and encourage cellular turnover. Additionally, the plasma energy reaches down to your skin’s dermis – the layer below your epidermis – to stimulate fibroblast activity and skin rejuvenation from within. 

What Are Fibroblasts?

Fibroblasts are cells within your skin that produce collagen, elastin, and other vital support structures for your skin’s connective tissue. Collagen and elastin play a large role in the overall firmness and appearance of your skin but naturally decrease with age. 

Plasma skin tightening, also known as fibroblasting, helps replenish your collagen and elastin supply to keep your skin looking smooth and youthful. 

What Plasma Pen Treatment Can Do for You 

Now that you have an understanding of how the Plasma Pen works, it’s time to learn what it can do for you. 

Improve the Appearance of Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Creases  

Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases appear as your body’s collagen production drops with age. Since the Plasma Pen stimulates collagen production, it’s able to reverse some of the wrinkling effects of collagen loss to restore a smoother, plumper, and younger-looking appearance. 

The Plasma Pen can minimize the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Smile lines 
  • Forehead creases
  • Smoker’s lines 
  • Frown lines 
  • Nasolabial folds 

Best of all, treatment is not limited to your face. Plasma Pen can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles anywhere on your body.

Tighten Up Loose Skin Around Your Face and Body 

The effects of gravity combined with collagen loss can leave your skin sagging long before you’re ready. The Plasma Pen excels at tightening up loose skin and begins working its magic as soon as the plasma reaches your skin. 

Using the Plasma Pen, we can lift and tighten the skin around your:

  • Chin
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Jawline 
  • Stomach 
  • Knees
  • Thighs 

By tightening up loose skin, Plasma Pen is able to improve the appearance of your natural contours and create a brighter and more youthful visage. 

Correct Under Eye Bags 

Do you struggle with dark bags under your eyes or a chronic puffiness that won’t seem to go away? Plasma skin tightening can correct these cosmetic concerns in as little as one treatment session. The Plasma Pen gently tightens and lifts the entire orbital area, providing results that are comparable to eyelift surgery. 

Improve Hooded Eyes 

The Plasma Pen is a wonderful non-surgical alternative to correct light-moderately hooded eyelids. Because of its remodeling and tightening capabilities, the lift can be a subtle yet great difference for aesthetic purposes as well as visibility purposes for the client.

Fade the Appearance of Stretch Marks

Fibroblast plasma therapy is effective for stretch marks for the same reasons it’s effective for treating scars. Stimulating collagen production and increasing cellular turnover provides the perfect avenue to tighter, healthier-looking skin. 

Plasma Pen is the perfect treatment for anyone who is left with stretch marks after childbirth or a dramatic weight loss. The Plasma Pen can also treat the loose skin that often accompanies both childbirth and weight loss. 

Assist with Dermatological Conditions

Fibroblast plasma therapy is also effective at treating conditions such as sebaceous hyperplasia, skin tags and in some cases, benign lesion reduction. 

Improve the Appearance of Scars and Stretch Marks 

When your skin is injured, your body works hard to repair it as quickly as possible. For small injuries – such as a papercut or scraped knee – it’s easy for your body to heal within a couple of days and repair the injury with normal-looking skin. 

However, when the injury or incision is more severe, your body rushes to repair the skin as quickly as possible, and the collagen is not laid down in the same pattern as the surrounding skin, causing the appearance of a scar. 

Since Plasma Pen treatment stimulates fibroblast activity and cellular turnover, it is great for addressing acne, surgical, and injury scars. After treatment, the scarred skin cells are slowly replaced with new, healthy cells. 

When Can You Start to See Plasma Pen Results?

Most people report seeing both immediate and long-term results from plasma skin tightening. Immediately after treatment, some mild skin tightening effects are already visible, but the results continue to improve for three to six months after treatment as with any collagen stimulating treatment.
