Why do I want this treatment?
Your highly trained Doctor will use the Plasma Pen device to deliver “soft-surgery” plasma fibroblasting. The plasma significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces, and regenerates practically any area of the skin.
Fibroblast Plasma Lift removes or reduces fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, sagging skin on your neck or tummy, and eliminates skin imperfections like skin tags and sun damage.
The results are only comparable to plastic surgery , and in most areas, are permanent. To put the prices into perspective, the cost of Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is $1,800 – $2,500 and a facelift is $7,200 – $10,000.
Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen and transmits that energized gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen.
Picture those fun electric balls you have seen as a kid and how it jumps from the base to your finger as you touch the glass.
Electric energy converts gas from the air into “diatomic molecular nitrogen,” mostly oxygen and nitrogen. It is then transmitted to the skin’s surface in a non-contact way. It will only fire when it’s 1mm away or if it touches the skin.
World-class plasma devices with advanced and accredited training
Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International is the world’s most advanced non-invasive, nitrogen plasma device on the market. Manufactured in Germany, the Plasma Pen delivers next-generation soft surgery, making it the number one solution for beauty, aesthetics and medical professionals worldwide. With our innovative, intuitive & ergonomic technology, thousands of technicians in over 50 countries have delivered hundreds of thousands of plasma treatments to date. Our precision devices are proven to deliver the most optimal, natural looking & long-lasting plasma fibroblast results with minimal downtimes and rapid recovery.
Plasma Pen is used to non-surgically treat virtually any area of the body to tighten, resurface, rejuvenate and regenerate skin to dramatically eliminate lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to lift the brow and reshape the nose. Our plasma device is popular for jaw augmentation and for softening laughter lines.
Our Plasma Pen device creates nitrogen plasma gas. During the treatment, the energy collects on the surface of the barrier and a gaseous flash of ionized plasma gas is safely released from about 1mm above the skin. This transfers to the epidermal layer of skin to create superficial trauma and plasma fibroblasts, which in turn results in impressive skin tightening and rejuvenation.
No – not with full PlasmaPen™ treatment anyway (for rejuvenation only skin treatment – where the skin is not fully broken and the fibroblasts are not targeted – we can actually treat any skin type).
For full PlasmaPen™ treatment, we only treat skin types 1 to 3 on the Fitzpatrick scale. Your technician will be able to determine precisely what skin type you are and will likely use one of our professional Skin Type Sensors. Treating anyone with darker skin than this with full treatment is putting clients at risk of pigmentation. The reason for this is that people with darker skins have melanocytes capable of making large amounts of melanin. When black skin is injured, for example, the melanocytes will usually either hyperpigment or hypopigment. Dark skinned people have a greater risk of forming keloid and hypertrophic scars too.
Our treatment is probably the fastest out there thanks to our spectacular plasma delivery, the incredible ergonomic and lightweight design of our PlasmaPen™, the tiniest probes, and the best technician training and support that is available anywhere from any provider.
There are a superfluity of treatments available but, to give you some examples, it should require about 30 to 40 minutes to treat your upper or lower eye areas. Procedures like a full neck treatment or a full forehead lift will be longer and prior to any treatment you will have the area numbed. Depending on the numbing and pre-treatment products used, the length of your pre-treatment consultation, the forms you will need to complete, the individual technician and then the aftercare advice provided to you after your treatment, this will of course extend the overall time you will spend with your technician. Depending on the particular treatment, your objectives and you as an individual, your technician may recommend more than one session.
We don’t think so and especially not with our #1 device. For many, PlasmaPen™ is virtually a pain-free treatment and is often described as merely tingly. We see many clients fall asleep during their procedure. However, the treatment may be moderately uncomfortable depending on you and where you are being treated. Eyelid procedures (where the skin is at its thinnest) can be more painful for some people but our device, plasma delivery, and super-fine probes allow our technicians to work very quickly and efficiently and this minimizes potential discomfort for you by design.
Your technician will numb the area before treatment and sometimes during too depending on the products they use and the regulations in this area. For treatments on large areas, technicians will typically “numb as they go” so that the numbing effects don’t wear off while they are still working. It’s all relative too – think how painful something like cosmetic surgery can be after a procedure when your anesthetic wears off.
PlasmaPen™ delivers exceptionally long-lasting results. From all observations, clinical trials, and real-world experience, about three years is normal. Once the skin is tightened then it is actually permanent. However, your skin will still continue to age and this will happen at different rates based on genetics, lifestyle choices, and free radicals so although we suggest treatment results will last for around 3 years, some clients will experience longer-lasting results than others. Remember too that in addition to rejuvenation, we are actually helping repair the scaffolding of the skin with our fibroblasting to mitigate the aging process.
If, for example, we treat your smokers’ lines and you then continue to smoke then results may possibly not be as long-lasting compared to if you had stopped. If we make your eyelid hoods or bags disappear then that is also a permanent effect although, of course, they could potentially grow back in years to come.
