Developed by Louise Walsh International, the Plasma Pen is a revolutionary device designed to provide advanced, non-invasive skin rejuvenation. The plasma pen effectively lifts, tightens, resurfaces, and helps regenerate skin. Treatment with the plasma pen is considered a ‘soft surgery’ and typically results in very little down time and a quick recovery.
How it Works
This German-manufactured device produces many tiny flashes of plasma, forcing immediate contraction of the skin tissue and creating thermal disruption within the dermis. This disruption helps activate the production of collagen and elastin, releases key proteins within the skin, and encourages healing. Jump-starting these otherwise natural bodily processes helps to lift and plump the chosen area over a sustained period of time.
What Areas Can a Plasma Pen Treat?
The plasma pen is most often used to rejuvenate the face and neck. It is especially popular for reshaping the eye area, and is used by the best eyelid surgeons in Chicago to provide patients with long-lasting results. The Plasma Pen can also be used on hands, elbows, and other areas of the body with loose or wrinkled skin.
What to Expect
At Your Consultation
If you schedule a consultation with one of the best eye surgeons in Chicago, your visit will include a thoughtful and expert assessment of your skin and aesthetic goals. If it’s determined that you are a good candidate for Plasma Pen, a strategy for your treatment will be presented for your next appointment.
Plasma Pen Procedure
The procedure will begin with a numbing cream to help manage the sensations associated with the Plasma Pen. Most patients will report little to no discomfort during treatment, with some lingering numbness following their appointment. The Plasma Pen requires little to no downtime for most, but may include mild skin sensitivity, redness, and/or flaking in the affected area.
As your fresh skin emerges from below, you will begin to see the effects you dreamed of. You may notice your skin continuing to become tighter and more youthful over the coming weeks, with full results seen at the six-month mark. While some patients will experience permanent changes, many will notice their results fade within three to five years of their treatment.
If you’re considering your rejuvenation options, we recommend that you discuss them with the best eyelid surgeons in Chicago, Glenview, and Memphis.
