Plasma Pen



Over time, the structure of our skin breaks down and the scaffolding elements (the deeper layers) that once supported the surface of the skin no longer do so. This means that we develop sagging and wrinkling as art of a slow degenerative process. Plasma treatment for the face and body uses plasma gas to create micro trauma to the upper and deeper layers of the skin, resulting in improved collagen production and renewed appearance to the skin. Very simply, our Plasma Pen device is able to significantly tighten, lift, resurface, rejuvenate and regenerate practically any area of the skin. It is a cost-effective & highly compelling alternative to all other medi-aesthetic procedures you may know including injectables, fillers, microneedling, laser, mesotherapy, dermabrasion and chemabrasion, and most (if not all) elective cosmetic surgery procedures. All Plasma Pen treatments require a consultation prior to booking.


Plasma Pen’s unique technology operates on electricity, which is converted to gaseous diatomic nitrogen (N2). This energized gas is applied to the skin of the face (or whatever region is being treated), which is used as an abrasive on a micro level to the epidermal layer of skin (the top or outermost layers) and also heats and stimulates the deeper layers.

The process by which a Plasma Pen works is called fibroblasting. The “blasting” part can make it sound a little intense or dangerous, but it’s actually named for fibroblasts, which are a common type of cell in your body’s connective tissue. Fibroblasts are responsible for producing collagen, and it’s by stimulating this collagen production that Plasma Pen treatment is able to fill wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and more.


As the human body ages, our dermal layers of skin naturally start to thin out and produce less collagen. This can cause our outward appearance to become wrinkled or saggy. Fibroblasting therapy can counteract this natural process and get collagen production jump-started again to halt or even reverse the signs of aging.

The collagen-boosting effects of Plasma Pen treatment make it a great choice for pursuing a wide range of esthetic goals and treating a variety of dermatological conditions.

Some of the most common applications for Plasma Pen treatment are:

  • Sagging or excess skin. Most often around the face, jowls, or neck, but Plasma Pen treatment can be used on pretty much any part of the body that has loose skin from aging or weight loss.

  • Eyes. Puffiness, hooded lids, and drooping “bags” can all be successfully treated with Plasma Pen fibroblasting. It may even provide a viable alternative to eye lift surgery in some cases.

  • Wrinkles and fine lines. Including crow’s feet, accordion lines, furrows, laugh lines, marionette lines, and creased brows.

  • Scars. Including acne scars and stretch marks.

  • Sebaceous Hyperplasia. When your sebaceous oil glands produce too much oil, which can be trapped under your skin and cause bumps on the face (particularly nose, cheeks, and forehead). The Plasma pen uses light electrocautery to shrink and diminish the appearance of these enlarged glands.

  • Skin Tags. While other methods can be affective, they usually take a long drawn-out process, and there is a high chance the growth will come back soon, or spread. With plasma pen there is almost a 0% chance of the growth spreading, or returning within the treated area.

The Plasma Pen’s innovative fibroblasting treatment can be used for all manner of skin tightening, smoothing, rejuvenation, and anti-aging efforts. Plasma Pen treatment is a great alternative for those not interested in costly, invasive surgeries such as eye lifts, neck lifts, and brow lifts.


Like most non-surgical esthetic procedures, the effects of your Plasma Pen treatment may diminish with time or require additional treatments to maintain. Just how much time? The answer may be surprising to people who are accustomed to visiting their esthetician for fillers or injections multiple times per year.

A successful Plasma Pen treatment stimulates collagen production to such an extent that the results are noticeable for multiple years. The benefits of fibroblasting typically last at least three or four years, and sometimes even longer than that!


Plasma Pen patients experience mild to moderate pain and minimal disruption to their day-to-day routines or social lives.

Most people who undergo Plasma Pen treatment report only very mild discomfort during the procedure itself. Your esthetician will begin the Plasma Pen treatment process by using topical anesthetics to numb the target area for the duration of the procedure. Numbing agents may be reapplied between passes as needed.


Although Plasma Pen treatment is abrasive on a micro level, causing small, burn-like injuries around the treated site, these injuries are typically quite superficial and result in only minor discoloration and swelling. The healing from Plasma Pen treatment can be described as similar to an extremely small sunburn or tattoo, and typically clears up naturally within a few days of treatment.

Bruising, swelling, and overall discomfort can sometimes persist beyond the healing period, but it’s very rare for these symptoms to last any more than five to seven days, and can typically be treated with common over-the-counter medications.

The dermis layers of the skin will continue to heal “behind the scenes” for many weeks after the procedure is completed. It is during this extended healing process that the skin begins to tighten, ramp up production of additional collagen, and create the desired results. That’s why the treated area might very well look better twelve weeks after your treatment than one week, and the results will remain noticeable for literally years after that.


Fibroblast skin tightening technology is FDA-approved and considered safe. Plasma Pen sessions stimulate the body’s own natural regenerative abilities to refresh and resurface your skin without the need for additional chemicals or medicines. Plasma Pen fibroblasting is a low-risk procedure that has been performed thousands of times for satisfied clients all around the world. It requires no injections, incisions, or direct contact with the skin from any implement.

That being said, there are a few instances where a patient might want to avoid Plasma Pen treatment, or discuss it carefully with their primary physician:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding

  • Metal implements or medical appliances near the treatment area

  • Pacemakers or serious heart conditions

  • Diabetes

  • Epilepsy

  • Cancer or autoimmune conditions that might hinder normal healing processes

  • Darker skin tones may not respond to Plasma Pen treatment as well as lighter skin tones

Before any Plasma Pen work takes place, you and your provider will have a consultations to make sure fibroblasting therapy is a safe and effective choice for your situation.


The healing process in the dermis layer of your skin will continue for many weeks after you leave the esthetician’s office. Your care provider will go over detailed aftercare instructions that apply to your specific treatment, but in general here are some things you should expect to be responsible for after your Plasma Pen session:

  1. Keep the treated area dry until scabs have fully healed.

  2. Allow scabs to heal naturally, do not pick or rub at them.

  3. Avoid using makeup (or any other skin products not explicitly recommended by your treatment provider) on the treated area.

  4. Minimize your exposure to UV rays by staying indoors, keeping the treated area covered, and/or using a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

  5. Do not use abrasive or exfoliant skin products for up to eight weeks after treatment.


If you’re looking into cutting-edge skin treatments, you might already be aware of microneedling, another popular option for smoother, more evenly toned skin. Microneedling involves an array of twelve or more acupuncture needles being used to directly stimulate collagen production about 2.5 mm deep into the skin’s middle dermis layer.

Microneedling is entirely distinct from Plasma Pen therapy in its method of action, although there is a lot of overlap in what the two processes may be used to treat.

From the consumer standpoint, there are several key differences potential clients should be aware of:

  • Targeting. While both treatments are performed using a pen-like tool, microneedling affects a broader area around the treatment site, while the Plasma Pen offers pen-like precision to target specific problem areas.

  • Contact. Microneedling works on the principles of acupuncture, meaning it is actually piercing the skin with very small needles to create “microchannels” that aid in collagen stimulation and create a pathway for other skincare products to be applied to the dermis. Plasma Pen treatment, in contrast, involves no direct contact with the skin.

  • Scabbing and swelling. Microneedling involves a series of tiny, pin-prick jabs that can result in tender and swollen skin in some patients for about a day afterwards. The heat and ionization from the Plasma Pen’s fibroblasting process results in superficial burn-like injuries around the treatment site that can be expected to scab for a few days.

  • Longevity of results. Successful microneedling can create results that remain noticeable for up to six months, while the results of Plasma Pen treatment can last several years.


The Plasma Pen we use is FDA approved and from the plasma pen creator and patent holder, Louise Walsh. Louise launched the first Plasma Pen in November of 2017. Innovated by Louise and manufactured by German engineers, the Plasma Pen has since become the number one plasma fibroblasting device in the world. Known for its exceptional power, precision, and consistency, Plasma Pen is now used by medical practitioners in over 40 countries.
