Plasma Concepts Pen: The Newest Tool In The Fight Against Wrinkles

People have been dealing with the issue of stubborn wrinkles for years and years. While the issue may not be new, some of the best treatment options are!

The Plasma Concepts Pen is one of these exciting new options for combating this frustrating sign of aging. The experts at Marietta Plastic Surgery are excited to now be offering this option to our patients.

What Is The Plasma Concepts Pen?

The Plasma Concepts Pen is a type of aesthetic treatment used to fight against wrinkling skin. It is a handheld device that most closely resembles a pen, with plasma flashes that appear from the tip and apply to the skin.

How Does it Treat Wrinkles?

To understand how this tool works, you have to understand why wrinkles develop in the first place. Here’s a quick explanation! As we age, we lose collagen and elastin from our skin. Wrinkles and lines become more noticeable and skin laxity is increased.

The Plasma Concepts Pen stimulates collagen and elastin, helps to lift and tone the skin, and helps rejuvenate the skin. This is done using heat energy to create tiny controlled wounds in the epidermis. Simultaneously, it heats and disrupts the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This leads to new collagen formation.

How Long Do Results Last?

Many people see a difference right away after receiving a treatment from the Plasma Concepts Pen. However, final results take time to develop, so expect to see those in approximately 12 weeks.

While results do vary from individual to individual, generally speaking results can last up to three years. However, this largely depends on your lifestyle and how well you care for your skin.

Patients typically require 1-2 treatments.

The Plasma Concepts Pen can be used to treat the following areas:

Face:

  • Upper and Lower Eyelid

What Skin Types Can Use This Treatment?

Unfortunately, not every skin type is ideal for Plasma Pen treatment. Your healthcare provider will evaluate and discuss this with you.

Does the Plasma Concepts Pen Hurt?

Just like many aesthetic treatments, topical anesthetics are applied to the skin before treatment to help keep patients comfortable. Those who receive this service will only feel mild discomfort that is described as a tingling sensation. After the treatment, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your skin.

  • Full neck – $1,800
  • Large area – $800
