Do Plasma Pens Really Work? Yes!

plasma pensDoes your bathroom mirror seem to be highlighting the bags under your eyes? Maybe the angle of your camera while you’re on Zoom is highlighting the extra skin under your neck is a little too much. If you’ve been noticing more loose, sagging skin lately, but aren’t ready for surgery, it’s time to consider one of our newest treatments: Plasma pens!

Plasma pens can be used to treat sagging skin or wrinkles on any part of your neck, face, or body. These FDA-approved devices provide non-surgical rejuvenation by lifting and tightening your skin. Because there is no surgery involved, the downtime after a plasma pen treatment is minimal. Even better, the results are similar to those offered through surgery.

What is a Plasma Pen Treatment?

Plasma pens convert electrical energy into a plasma gas stream that is aimed at minute dots placed on your skin. We will determine the exact placement of these dots beforehand, during your pre-treatment consultation.

When the plasma gas hits the surface of your skin, it will cause the skin to contract. This contraction of the skin results in an immediate firming effect. The plasma gas also stimulates your skin cells to ramp up their production of collagen and elastin. This will create a long-term tightening of the treated area. 

A plasma pen can be used anywhere on your body that you would like to see non-surgical rejuvenation. It is used for common skin concerns such as sagging jowls, crow’s feet, stretch marks, puffiness or bags around the eyes, acne scars, and more. 

What is Subnovii?

At the Advanced Center for Plastic Surgery, we offer state-of-the-art plasma skin treatments using the Subnovii plasma device, the most advanced plasma pen treatment available. Subnovii is the first plasma device to use low-frequency technology, resulting in more precise applications and a shortened healing time. FDA-approved, Subnovii is a safe and effective way to address your concerns about your skin. 

Is Plasma Skin Tightening Permanent?

Yes! Plasma pen treatments result in the permanent tightening of your loose skin. However, your skin will continue aging and responding to environmental and lifestyle factors, so it is likely that you will need future treatments. 

What Are the Benefits of Plasma Pen Treatments?

It’s natural to be hesitant when considering a new treatment. If you’re still not sure whether you want to give plasma pen treatments a try, consider its many benefits:

Improved Skin

The first and most important benefit of a plasma pen treatment is the improvement in your skin’s appearance. Your skin will immediately look tighter, firmer, and less saggy. During the 12 weeks that follow, these positive results will continue to increase. 

Quick Appointments

Depending on the treatment area, your procedure will take as little as 60 to 90 minutes. However, certain body treatments, like addressing stretch marks, may take up to two hours. 

Painless Procedures

Because this is a non-surgical procedure, there is very little pain involved. You won’t even need general anesthesia. We use a topical numbing cream and find that it is more than enough to reduce the slight discomfort you may feel during your treatment. 

Long-Lasting Results

Unlike many other non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, plasma pen treatments give you results that truly last. The effects from a plasma pen treatment can last anywhere from two to four years, depending on how quickly your skin ages. 

Still not sure if it’s right for you? If you would like to know more about the ways that treatment with a Subnovii plasma device can rejuvenate your skin, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Beverly Fischer. We would be happy to talk to you about the benefits of plasma pen treatments for your skin.
