PLASMA PEN

Fibroblast Plasma Pen Treatment in Shreveport

It is no secret that we begin to notice the indications of aging on our skin as we become older. Oftentimes, our skin may even make us seem older than we are, from small lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet and marionette lines to volume loss in the cheeks and sagging skin that can cause jowls. Fortunately, there are plenty of non-invasive treatment options out there that employ cutting-edge anti-aging technologies to restore that youthful appearance you desire. For example, things like hyaluronic acid fillers, Parisian Peels, skin resurfacing lasers, and microneedling treatments in Shreveport are all very effective methods for rejuvenating the skin.

Another newer revolution for non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments is the Fibroblast Plasma Pen treatment. Plasma Pen therapy is essentially a non-invasive facelift that may be used as an alternative to plastic surgery, requiring only a topical anesthetic and minimal downtime. Plasma pen therapy can help tighten loose skin throughout the face, jawline, upper and lower eyelids, and neck while minimizing the appearance of things like forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, marionette lines, stretch marks, and even acne scars. 

Whether you’re bothered by loose skin, hooding around the upper and lower eyelids, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, or anything of the like, The Plastic Surgery Center of Shreveport is here to help. Read on to learn more about how Fibroblast Plasma Pen therapy works and how it can help you.

Plasma Pen FAQs

The Plasma Pen is an FDA-approved portable skin rejuvenation device that produces nitrogen plasma gas by converting an electrical charge into electrostatic energy. Similar to microneedling, the pen's precise plasma arc creates micro-traumas on the skin’s surface (epidermis) while heating the lower layers of the skin to target the skin's fibroblasts cells. The Plasma Pen essentially shifts the dermal structure and ignites the skin rejuvenation process by targeting these cells. As a result, the pen tightens skin while also disrupting the skin's "memory" of things like acne scars, skin tags, and age spots, thus resulting in a more even skin tone. Plasma Pen should only be administered by a licensed and trained technician.
The most frequent type of cell found in connective tissue is what is known as the fibroblast. Fibroblasts are responsible for the production of collagen, as collagen proteins are secreted by these fibroblasts and are utilized to maintain the structural foundation of numerous tissues. This makes fibroblasts vital in the wound healing process.
The micro-trauma that results from the Plasma Pen activates the body's natural wound-healing mechanism, which enhances collagen and results in firmer, smoother skin. The increase in collagen and elastin in the skin can be very beneficial for common loose-skin problem areas such as jowls, turkey neck, and eyelid skin. The Plasma Pen's advanced technology can also be used to remove the outer layer of old or damaged skin. plasma pen fibroblast

Fibroblast Plasma Pen therapy is a simple and relatively painless procedure. Before your treatment, an initial consultation will be held at The Plastic Surgery Center to review your medical history and current skin condition. During your appointment, you'll be able to discuss your treatment goals and desired results, which might range from a non-invasive facelift or neck lift to acne scar removal and fine line and wrinkle reduction.
Before administering the Plasma Pen to the appropriate treatment region, your aesthetician will use a topical numbing cream to provide optimal comfort during the treatment. The pen will then create micro-injuries to the skin while providing fibroblast therapy to boost collagen and elastin synthesis. The operation takes about 30 minutes in all, and the results will typically appear two weeks after therapy.

Plasma Pen Healing Process

Mild adverse effects such as redness, swelling, and little spots along the treatment region will appear shortly after treatment. Scabs usually form at the site of the treatment region and generally fall off after about 5-7 days. You will see optimal results at two weeks post-treatment.

Plasma Pen Treatment Cost

Plasma Pen treatment prices vary depending on the targeted skin condition, size of the treatment area, the treating physician’s ability, and the number of treatments necessary.
