Skin Tightening

What is plasma pen treatment?

Plasma pen treatment is used to non-surgically treat virtually any area of the body to tighten, resurface, rejuvenate and regenerate skin to eliminate lines and wrinkles dramatically. It can also be used to lift the brow and soften lines across the nose. The plasma device is popular for jaw augmentation and for softening laughter lines.

What helps to tighten skin and wrinkles?

As we age, our skin’s natural production of collagen molecules slows down dramatically – leading to a deflationary effect on the surface of our skin. This causes us to get fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin as we get older. As the scaffolding of our skin deteriorates, it loses its natural laxity and texture, as the elastin that underpins our skin’s elasticity begins to wear out. Plasma pen fibro-blasting treatments can support this loss in structure, with a range of non-invasive, soft-surgical facelifts and skin tightening treatments, to stimulate fibroblast cells in the skin to tighten, repair and eliminate wrinkles.

How does plasma pen work?

The plasma pen device creates nitrogen plasma gas. During the treatment, the energy collects on the surface of the skin, then a gaseous flash of ionized plasma is safely released from about 1mm above the skin. This transfers to the epidermal layer of skin to create superficial trauma and plasma fibroblasts, which in turn results in impressive skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Step 1: With the plasma pen, the precision plasma arc causes immediate superficial micro-trauma to the upper epidermal layer of the skin.

Step 2: This micro-trauma stimulates the healing process for the creation of new, rejuvenated, tight and smooth tissue over the next 12 weeks.

Step 3: During this phase collagen and elastin are produced, plumping the structure of the skin to soften and eliminate lines and wrinkles.

Neck lift – As part of the ageing process, our skin loses its elasticity and the muscles start to slacken. A plasma pen neck lift can tighten and lift the skin of the neck, without the need for painful invasive surgery.

Eye lift – Tighten eyelid skin without surgery. The skin around the upper and lower eyelids can begin to droop, become crepey and sag with age. Precision application of plasma energy helps to reactivate the fibroblasts and boost new collagen production in this area, for a smoother appearance.

Crow’s feet – Deep crow’s feet can greatly affect your confidence, making the face appear older than it really is. Careful application of plasma energy can eradicate deep furrows and fine lines around the eyes, for a more youthful look.

Jaw augmentation – The skin around the jawline can become soft and lose definition over time. Plasma pen treatment helps to kick start the collagen production process and create a firmer jawline appearance.

Facial resurfacing – How to tighten sagging skin on the face. A careful application of plasma energy over the whole of the face will help to smooth out fine lines, resurface the skin, brighten the complexion and reduce pigmentation problems.

Stage 1

The plasma arc causes superficial damage to the upper dermal layer of the skin and transmits heat to the lower levels of the skin.

Stage 2

This causes the new skin to generate Collagen and Elastin fibres that begin to fade as we age.

Stage 3

Collagen then gets generated for the next 6-8 weeks. The results are improved skin texture, wrinkles are less visible. reduced and skin is smoother.

First 3-7 days

The innovative fibro-blasting treatments with the plasma pen by Louise Walsh International are known to deliver compressed downtimes, higher velocity recovery and superior results. Here is what to expect from each stage of the healing journey following a soft-surgery fibro-blasting treatment.

In the first 3 to 7 days, tiny carbon crusts appear on the skin as a sign of the new epithelial tissue. These carbon crusts serve as a natural and protective biological dressing, that will flake off naturally as the newly formed and rejuvenated skin appears underneath. The plasma pen treatment creates Type 111 collagen, that works to minimise the effect and appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and skin aging.

6-8 weeks

Collagen Type 1 is then generated resulting in tighter skin, with improved skin texture and a less visible, reduced wrinkle size.

The entire healing time is 12 weeks, 2-3 treatments may be required for optimal skin tightening.

Together we can make a difference!
