At Le Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, we offer PlasmaPen™ treatments to help patients naturally combat the signs of aging, eliminate skin imperfections, and naturally increase collagen and elastin production to restore a healthy and youthful glow to the skin. These effective treatments use plasma energy to lift and tighten the skin and reverse the aging process with a unique, non-invasive method.
What Is the PlasmaPen™?
The PlasmaPen™ is a pen-like device that uses plasma energy to improve the appearance of the skin. Plasma is often referred to as the fourth state of matter and is similar to a gas in substance. When applied to the skin through the device, it creates a thermal injury that the body must heal and repair. The plasma targets the fibroblasts, which are skin cells that play a part in collagen and elastin production.
This device is known for its ability to perform non-surgical neck and eye lifts, correct sun-damaged skin, repair the skin affected by acne scars, smooth lines around the mouth, eliminate jowls, remove moles, and more.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
The PlasmaPen™ has been growing in popularity for its ability to deliver versatile and effective treatments to meet the needs of patients with different skin-related concerns. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:
It’s a safe and FDA-approved treatment
It’s non-invasive and doesn’t use any harsh chemicals during treatment
It enacts a natural process in the body for results
It can treat areas on the face and body
It provides a non-surgical way to drastically improve the health and appearance of the skin
How Does It Work?
During treatments, the device creates an arc of plasma energy without ever making contact with the skin. That plasma targets the skin, which results in a tiny thermal injury that forces the body to respond with a healing reaction. The device affects the fibroblasts, and the treatment process has thus been deemed fibroblast therapy. The body responds to these tiny thermal injuries by increasing natural collagen and elastin production to heal and rejuvenate the skin.
What Does It Treat?
PlasmaPen™ treatments are versatile. We can use this device to address several different aesthetic and aging-related concerns. It can remove unwanted lesions from the skin, including milia, excess skin, and moles, smooth scars and create a more uniform skin texture, improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and perform a non-surgical eye and neck lift. We can also use it to correct skin laxity on the face and body and address many other aesthetic concerns.
