Skincare treatments can add up, and if you don’t have the ability or don’t want to spend a significant amount of money on your skin, we want to introduce you to a cost-effective treatment that can do it all. At Ageless Skin Rejuvenation in Virginia Beach, VA, we offer treatments with the Plasma Pen. This device uses soft-surgery plasma fibroblasting techniques to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface which results in skin rejuvenating and anti-aging results.
The Plasma Pen is a unique lightweight pen-like device that uses plasma energy to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, resulting in total skin rejuvenation and increased collagen and elastin production.
The Plasma Pen is effective because it targets the aging process at its source, rejuvenates the skin, and promotes rejuvenated skin from the inside out. The aging process causes the dermal layer, which is the deeper layer of your skin structure, to thin. Thinning skin results from different factors, including decreased collagen production, changes in the scaffolding of the skin, and the degradation of elastin fibers.
As a result, skin exhibits different signs of aging, including sagging, wrinkles, laxity, textural irregularities, and lines. Hollow areas may form in different parts of the face, and then the facial structure slowly morphs due to facial fat distribution and collagen loss.
This device uses nitrogen plasma energy to address the skin’s surface and deeper layers, creating a micro-injury that affects both the surface and the dermal layers. The plasma energy addresses the fibroblasts, which are connective tissue cells in the body responsible for producing type III and, later, type I collagen.
The device reactivates active fibroblasts in the skin by creating a wound that the body responds to with an inflammatory and healing reaction. Post-treatment, your body will begin healing the micro-injuries by creating new collagen and elastin; as it does, you’ll watch your different problem areas improve.
Plasma Pen treatments are versatile and can improve some of the most noticeable signs of aging, including chin lines, chin wrinkles, smile lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and parenthesis lines. It can also smooth the lines around the upper lip, also known as lipstick lines, that are very difficult to treat with topical products alone. It can be used as a non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty, and to treat jowls and pre-jowl folds and tighten and contour the area.
We can also use it around the corners of the mouth to address the lines known as oral commissures and smooth the horizontal lines on the nose, also known as bunny lines. It can rejuvenate the entire face and reduce the appearance of rosacea. It’s an effective solution for patients who suffer from:
The plasma pen can treat aging on the face, but we can also use it on different areas of the body to address sagging skin, stretch marks, scars, skin tags, noticeable veins, drooping neck skin, and other concerns.
There are many benefits to scheduling this minimally invasive anti-aging treatment, and it offers many of the same results as surgical procedures, minus the anesthesia, cutting, scalpels, and stitches.
It requires very little downtime, and patients can resume most of their normal daily activities after the treatment is over. It’s also far more affordable than more advanced cosmetic procedures and delivers long-lasting results that can last up to three years.
During the treatment process, your technician will use the plasma device to create tiny micro-injuries on your skin’s surface. These micro-injuries will appear as little scabbed dots. Never at any point does the plasma pen make contact with your skin but instead transfers the nitrogen plasma energy from the device tip to the skin.
Post-treatment, you’ll notice tiny dots across your treatment area. Treatments can take anywhere from one to two hours based on how many areas you want to address and the size of those areas. You will see benefits from just one treatment, but you may need a series of treatments to achieve the desired results.
You won’t have to plan around downtime after treatment, but you will need to be mindful of your skin and take steps to allow it to heal. We will provide you with post-treatment care instructions that may include using certain products as well as temporarily avoiding other products. It’s also important to avoid excess sun exposure and follow all of the post-care instructions to let the area heal so you can experience all the benefits of rejuvenated skin.
Before undergoing this treatment, we must schedule a pre-treatment consultation. Our goal is to help you reach your cosmetic goals, but first, we need to determine that you are a good candidate for the treatment process. We’ll ask you some questions about your skin, your medical history, and the areas you want to address. Once we confirm that you are eligible for Plasma Pen treatments, we can book your first appointment.
If you’re not ready to commit to cosmetic injectables or schedule invasive anti-aging treatments to improve your skin, you don’t have to. We can schedule Plasma Pen treatments to help you achieve incredible results that you can enjoy long-term. We will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific area of concern and help you achieve younger-looking skin. Contact us at Ageless Skin Rejuvenation today to schedule your consultation.
