Does a plasma pen really work?
Yes, the PlasmaPen can work wonders for your skin! As such, you will want to make sure you are receiving your PlasmaMD treatment from a seasoned specialist who knows what they are doing. Many patients experience improved skin texture, tightening of the skin and reduced wrinkles and fine lines for up to three years after their PlasmaMD treatment.
The PlasmaPen emits plasma energy to fibroblasts the dermis layers of your skin to smoothwrinkles and firm up loose or sagging skin. Fibroblasts are the most common type of cell in your connective tissues. Their primary purpose is to secrete collagen proteins, which provide structural integrity to your connective tissues and play an essential role in wound healing. In this way, sufficient collagen production is the basis for healthy skin. However, our body naturally produces less collagen as we age, leading to skin issues such as wrinkles and skin laxity. In order to combat this loss of collagen, the PlasmaMD pen stimulates the fibroblast cells in the treatment area to increase collagen production.
At Cara Mia Medspa, our medical doctors, aesthetic nurses, and licensed aestheticians have plenty of skills and experience when it comes to PlasmaMD treatment.
Is plasma skin tightening safe?
Yes, PlasmaMD treatment is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a class II plasma energy device for soft tissue skin coagulation and lesion removal. With that in mind, plasma skin tightening is generally considered safe when performed with PlasmaMD devices in experienced hands.
PlasmaMD skin tightening is a minimally invasive treatment that causes only minimal pain or discomfort. Moreover, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area to reduce pain or discomfort. You may experience slight swelling and small scabs (carbon crusts) for up to a week after treatment. Afterwards, you will begin to notice tighter and firmer skin in the treatment area. It is important to follow the post-treatment instructions your provider gives you or the best, complication-free results.
How often can you have a plasma pen treatment?
While some patients only need one PlasmaPen treatment to experience satisfactory results, others may require up to three treatment sessions before achieving their desired look. That being said, once the desired results are achieved, most patients do not need subsequent treatment sessions for two to three years.
Is a plasma pen treatment better than Botox?
PlasmaPen treatment is increasingly being marketed as an effective alternative to Botox treatment for correcting wrinkles, folds, and fine lines around the eyes and forehead. Part of the reason that PlasmaPen treatment is preferred to Botox treatment is the longevity of PlasmaPen treatment. While Botox treatment typically lasts for three to four months, PlasmaPen treatment is known to last for two to three years at a time. Moreover, many patients also notice that PlasmaPen treatment provides more precise results than Botox. With that being said, there are also many benefits to receiving Botox treatment. As such, the choice is ultimately yours to make!
