What Is the Plasma Pen?

The Plasma Pen is a cosmetic and dermatological device used to reduce skin laxity and eliminate other skin concerns. The Plasma Pen is primarily used to rejuvenate the facial skin, but it can be effective for nearly any area of the body.

What Can Be Treated With the Plasma Pen?

Plasma Pen is FDA-cleared for skin rejuvenation and can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic skin issues, including:

  • Skin laxity
  • Forehead lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Stretch marks
  • Crow’s feet
  • Acne scars
  • Under-eye bags
  • Lack of jawline definition
  • Broken capillaries
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Marionette lines
  • Lip lines

How Does the Plasma Pen Work?

The Plasma Pen works by delivering plasma energy to the outer layer of the targeted skin. This energy stimulates the fibroblasts, which are the cells responsible for producing collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin looking firm and smooth.

Much like standard microneedling, the Plasma Pen device also creates tiny injuries in the skin. This triggers your body’s natural healing process, promoting new, healthy skin cells. Plasma Pen can deliver both short-term and long-term skin revitalization.

What to Expect During Your Plasma Pen Treatment

Your Plasma Pen treatment at MD Beauty Lab will take approximately 30 minutes to an hour, depending on which area(s) you’re having treated. Prior to the procedure, you’ll have a private consultation with one of our knowledgeable skin rejuvenation professionals. During the meeting, you’ll discuss your specific goals as well as your medical history and any concerns you may have.

Before the Plasma Pen device is used, a topical numbing agent will be applied to your skin. Once the treatment is complete, you will be able to drive home immediately.

Does Plasma Pen Treatment Hurt?

No, you shouldn't feel any pain during your Plasma Pen treatment. You may feel a mild stinging sensation, but the numbing agent should keep your discomfort to a minimum.

Is There Downtime Needed After Plasma Pen Treatment?

Although you may feel well enough to resume your normal routine immediately after Plasma Pen treatment, many patients choose to wait a few days. Your skin in the treated area will likely peel, swell, and/or scab, which may prompt you to avoid social activity for up to a week.

To ensure that you heal properly and achieve best results, you should do the following during your recovery:

  • Avoid wearing makeup for seven to 10 days
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for up to a week
  • Wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 when you spend time outdoors
  • Refrain from picking or scratching your skin
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 24 to 48 hours

Am I a Good Candidate for Plasma Pen Treatment?

Treatment with the Plasma Pen is a safe and effective option for most people with skin laxity. The procedure can also be a good choice if you’re dealing with other cosmetic skin issues, such as wrinkles, stretch marks, or acne scarring.

While the Plasma Pen is a safe and non-invasive device, it is not the right treatment for everyone. We do not recommend this procedure for:

  • Women who are pregnant or nursing
  • People with plates or other metal appliances in the treatment area
  • People with pacemakers
  • People with serious medical conditions

Common Questions

What are the side effects of Plasma Pen treatment?

It’s normal to experience a few side effects after Plasma Pen treatment, but they’re typically mild and will subside gradually on their own. The most common side effects of the treatment include swelling, bruising, peeling, redness, crusting, and hyperpigmentation.

How quickly will I see results after a Plasma Pen treatment session?

You should immediately notice your skin becoming tighter and firmer after Plasma Pen treatment. The full results, however, will continue to develop over several weeks as collagen and elastin production increases.

How long do the results last?

As long as you consistently take good care of your skin and protect it from the sun, the results of your Plasma Pen treatment should last for several years.

How many Plasma Pen treatment sessions will I need?

You will most likely only need one Plasma Pen treatment to achieve your goals.
