plasma pen device

PlasmaMD is one of the latest advancements in aesthetics technology. This handheld device looks like a pen, but it’s actually a state-of-the-art tool that uses plasma, a naturally occurring ionized gas, to combat wrinkles and tighten sagging skin on the face and body.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about PlasmaMD:

What does PlasmaMD do?

PlasmaMD works to improve skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep skin firm and supple. This treatment is also called fibroblast therapy, or “fibroblasting,” because it stimulates the fibroblast cells that produce this new collagen and elastin.

What is PlasmaMD used for?

PlasmaMD is an excellent alternative to surgery for targeting delicate, difficult areas such as fine lines around the eyes and lips. Many of today’s physicians are using PlasmaMD to target the eye area, including the upper eyelids, lower eyelids and crow’s feet. Some physicians are using PlasmaMD as a non-surgical alternative to traditional blepharoplasty, performing what they refer to as “non-surgical eyelid lifts.”

PlasmaMD also treats acne scarring, stretch marks, skin tags and seborrheic keratoses. It’s being used to improve skin laxity, texture, tone and acne scars.

How exactly does PlasmaMD work?

PlasmaMD treatment is highly controlled and targeted to a specific treatment area. This hand-held, pen-like device is held above the skin’s surface during treatment, from up to one millimeter away. PlasmaMD never comes into contact with the skin. Rather, it works by emitting plasma energy, which reacts with the naturally occurring nitrogen molecules in the air. The reaction between the plasma energy and the nitrogen molecules creates an energetic burst in the shape of an arc, creating a micro-injury in the top layer of skin as well as heating up the dermis, where it causes collagen fibers to contract.

When will I see the benefits of PlasmaMD treatment?

PlasmaMD creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which results in some immediate firming. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, triggering the growth of new collagen and elastin in the weeks and months following treatment. Treated skin will continue to gradually improve over three to six months. 

What are the side effects of PlasmaMD?

PlasmaMD has low risk of side effects and minimal downtime when compared to more invasive surgical options. The device offers multiple energy settings, allowing certified and licensed practitioners the ability to customize the treatment for the patient’s skin condition and needs.

This state-of-the-art plasma energy treatment creates tiny, superficial brown carbon crusts in the skin, which typically last three to five days before falling off naturally. These controlled microinjuries promote a long-term firming, tightening and smoothing through the skin’s own natural healing response.

How long are PlasmaMD treatments?

Treatments can be performed in as little as 30-60 minutes.

Why is PlasmaMD a good investment for my aesthetics practice?

There are no other minimally invasive treatments on the market that can truly and safely target the skin around the eyes and mouth with the efficacy needed to produce dramatic results like PlasmaMD. Best of all, the benefits keep building with PlasmaMD! Although results are often noticeable once the initial healing process ends, the improvements will continue to develop in the following weeks and months, as new collagen and elastin are stimulated.
