A handheld plasma pen that fires ionised gas at damaged or unhealthy skin could be used to treat people with a range of conditions, from acne to diabetes. The plasma treatment, which is non-invasive, could be used to replace some surgical procedures, and can significantly reduce scarring
How does a plasma pen work?
Plasma Pen works on the principle of ionized gas in the air. At the right distance from the skin (treated area), oxygen and nitrogen are mixed, and the electrostatic energy produces the plasmatic effusion, which discharges on the skin with thermals. … The Plasma energy is directed through a precise tip of the hand piece.
Plasma pen skin tightening is a noninvasive treatment that your Beautifeye provider can use to revitalize your skin. The plasma pen passes energy through inert nitrogen gas, which when activated, is called plasma.
When your provider holds the plasma pen close to your skin, the plasma radiates thermal energy in the form of an electrical arc, which eliminates oxygen from the tissue. It also simultaneously delivers uniform heat to your skin.
Essentially, the plasma pen evaporates excess skin, causing it to contract and eliminate any wrinkles and sagging. The pen can also improve the appearance of acne scars, sun-aged skin, hyperpigmentation, and keratosis.
The plasma pen can tighten and improve skin health on virtually any part of your body within an hour. Some of the areas where it has proven to be most effective include:
In order to treat these different areas, your Beautifeye specialist can adjust the intensity levels and how many times he or she passes the plasma pen over your skin. Usually, you only need one treatment to see results.
The plasma pen treatment is completely safe. Because it eliminates oxygen from the skin tissues, the heat release is uniform and controlled, which reduces your risk of scarring and unexpected heat flairs during treatment. Plasma pen treatment, in contrast to laser ablation, is also unlikely to cause hypopigmentation.
Even though the plasma pen treatment can be uncomfortable, your specialist can apply local anesthesia before treatment to help reduce your discomfort.
After your plasma pen treatment, you will likely experience redness and peeling for up to 10 days. Sometimes, the healing process takes longer. You may also experience side effects including:
If you experience side effects or changes to your skin that concern you, reach out to your Beautifeye provider.
