The Science Behind the Plasma Pen and What It Does for Your Skin

You watch with dismay as new lines take up residence on your face as you age, and you’re displeased by the effect. After all, you feel so much younger than your appearance would suggest. While there are any number of anti-aging options, you want to find one that delivers great results without resorting to surgery. Our PlasmaMD® and Plasma Pen +® technologies certainly fit the bill

Cosmetic Surgery Center’s Dr. Trent Fogleman understands that surgical solutions aren’t for everyone, which is why we offer a wide range of minimally and noninvasive cosmetic treatments, and we’re particularly excited about our plasma pens.

Here’s a look at how our plasma pens work at reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Collagen and your skin

To understand how plasma technologies work, it’s important to first consider what we’re up against when it comes to aging skin. One of the primary problems behind those lines that are forming on your face is a lack of collagen.

Collagen is the most plentiful protein in the human body, and it’s responsible for providing support in your tissues. When you were in your 20s, you benefitted from ample production, but over the years, the production of this protein wanes by about 1% a year.

As a result, your once-smooth skin begins to wrinkle and sag thanks to the loss of collagen.

Enter plasma technology

The concept behind the plasma pen is to stimulate collagen production in your skin. To do this, we deliver plasma energy, which is superheated gas, into your skin to create very tiny injuries that kick off a healing cascade that includes ramped-up collagen production.

When we deliver the plasma energy with our PlasmaMD and Plasma Pen + technologies, your body responds with fibroblasts, which are cells that create an extracellular matrix and collagen. In other words, we create a scaffold for healthier, better-supported tissue that will be more toned and tight.

Where our plasma technology works best

When we use PlasmaMD and Plasma Pen +, we can control, with pinpoint precision, where the energy lands. As a result, we can use our plasma systems on any number of areas, including your:

As you can see, we can use our plasma pens most anywhere on your body.

Your results

Since we’re creating controlled injuries with our plasma technology, you can expect a social downtime of 3-7 days as crusts form where we’ve treated your skin. Once these crusts naturally fall away, the new support under your skin continues to lift and tighten your skin over the weeks following your appointment.
