Many of us are concerned with hooded eyes, sagging skin on the eyelids and fine lines and wrinkles under and around the eyes. While surgery can effectively correct these conditions, in many cases they can also be addressed with an amazing treatment called Plasma Pen Fibroblast Therapy.
A Plasma Pen is a device that is FDA approved for fibroblast therapy. This device uses electrical energy to create micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer, while also heating the deeper dermal structure through thermal conduction. This trauma then stimulates the formation of collagen, which over time, tightens and lifts sagging, wrinkled skin.
Plasma pen is a very effective treatment for:
Depending on the laxity of your skin and the goals you hope to achieve, your provider may recommend up to 3 treatments for optimal results.
Your provider will apply numbing cream to the area prior to treatment to ensure you are comfortable.
After treatment, expect to see tiny pinpoint spotting where the Plasma Pen has impacted the skin. These spots will be visible up to 8 days post treatment.
Your skin may be sensitive for two weeks after treatment, so you’ll want to avoid abrasive scrubs, toners or skin care products containing glycolic acids or Retin A.
Avoid using make up on the treated areas until your scabs are fully healed. This can take up to 6 days.
Collagen formation will continue over time. If additional treatments are recommend, expect to schedule between 8-12 weeks after your initial treatment.
Skin tightening like this IS possible without scalpels, stitches, or scars! Note you WILL have some down time — averaging about 8 days social down time on the face and neck. But your results will last up to 3 years!
