Plasma Pen in South Lake Tahoe, CA
What is Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen is a procedure that targets a wide variety of skin conditions including the loss of elasticity, sagging, and wrinkles. It is a non-invasive treatment that converts electrical energy into a plasma thermal heat that is transferred to the skin’s surface causing controlled micro-trauma to the epidermis while simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structures. This process is essential in stimulating new collagen and elastin production in the skin and is also known as fibroblasting.
Your medical history will be reviewed to make sure you are an appropriate candidate for Plasma Pen. Your provider will review all information about the treatment with you and will be able to answer any questions you may have.
Numbing cream will be put on 35 minutes before the treatment to make the procedure more comfortable. The treatment will take 30 to 90 minutes on average dependent on which area(s) are being treated. You may feel some burning and stinging with the treatment. After the procedure you can expect to have some redness, swelling and scabbing for the next 7-14 days. You will be sent home with aftercare instructions and it is important to adhere to these for appropriate healing and results.
What to expect?
Is it safe?
Plasma Pen treatments are safe when performed by licensed medical staff that have been trained on the procedure and when the treatment is done in an approved area. There are “home devices" and "knock-off" plasma medical devices available which would not be safe or recommended.
How long with the results last?
Fibroblasting results typically last for about a year and some treatment areas can show results for up to several years. The fibroblast treatment is intended to freshen, lift, and tighten the skin, while still allowing for the natural aging process to take place.
How much will it cost?
It costs $750 to treat most areas. We offer package discount pricing to treat multiple areas.
