FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Plasma Pen lifts, tightens, regenerates, and repairs, virtually any skin area by producing a discharge of plasma energy that can be directed precisely to the skin, with no surrounding damage. The microtrauma causes immediate skin, tightening, and an accelerated production of collagen and elastin. The result is smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

Following a Plasma Pen, patients can expect mild to moderate swelling on days 1-4; treatment crusts begin to fall off around day 5 and are generally gone by day 8. It is essential to follow post-care instructions including: avoid facial sweating for 5-7 days, avoid sun exposure, and use the provided serum and broad-spectrum sunscreen as instructed. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment, but must avoid driving if swelling impairs peripheral vision. Makeup may be applied after treatment crusts drop off (usually day 7).
Most patients experience redness and swelling as described above. It is important to follow pre- and post-treatment instructions to avoid any pigment changes or scarring. Avoid rubbing or picking the crusts to minimize the risk of complications.
