Although cosmetic surgery is effective, it’s not something for everyone. One of the things that a lot of our patients tell us is that they want surgical results without having to go under the knife. Although that’s not always feasible, we do have a few ways that you can get the best of both worlds like with the Plasma Pen.
The Plasma Pen is a unique device that converts electrical energy into electrostatic energy. Then, at about 1 mm from the skin, both oxygen and nitrogen are mixed to produce an arc of plasma that discharges onto the epidermis. When this happens, the skin immediately contracts which stimulates collagen production and releases important proteins in the skin at the same time. The results? Well, you’ll have to read on to learn more about the benefits that you can expect from treatment.
It Can Be Used On the Upper and Lower Eyelids
Until now, the only want to treat a loss of collagen and droopiness around the upper and lower eyelid was to undergo blepharoplasty. But, with skin pen, you can get very similar results without ever having to go under the knife, and it’s safe enough to treat these delicate tissues.
The Results Are Long Lasting
Unlike other on invasive procedures and treatments that only last a few months on average, one of the unique benefits of the Plasma Pen is that results can last up to three entire years. After your three years are up, you can come into our office for a touch-up.
It Can Be Used On All Parts of the Body
Although the Plasma Pen is most commonly used for facial procedures, it can also be performed on other parts of the body including:
- Stomachs and stretchmarks
- Breast lifts
- Legs and knees
- Loose arm skin/sagging
- Skin tags, blemishes, and hemangiomas
- Thread veins
- Necklift, turkey neck, and necklines
