What Plasma Pen does
Nitrogen plasma energy transfers to the skin’s epidermal layer, whilst also heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure. This micro-trauma affects the superficial epidermis, as well as a deeper zone within the dermis – particularly the fibroblasts.
Plasma Pen is an innovative fibroblasting device. The unique fractional and permeating tips by Plasma Pen work to evenly distribute plasma at a lower temperature over a wider area; whilst Plasma Pen nano-probes deliver concentrated nitrogen plasma gas non-invasively to the epidermal layer of the skin. The results are almost instant, and in many cases will last up to 3 years!
What is the Plasma Pen treatment process?
With the Plasma Pen, the precision plasma arc causes immediate superficial micro-trauma to the upper epidermal layer of the skin.
This micro-trauma stimulates the healing process for the creation of new, rejuvenated, tight, and smooth tissue over the next 12 weeks.
During this phase collagen and elastin are produced, plumping the structure of the skin to soften and eliminate lines and wrinkles.
Create artificial plasma to deliver fibroblasting treatments
Simply put, our innovative Plasma Pen device converts electrical energy into electrostatic energy to create nitrogen plasma gas. Through a combination of highly trained Plasma Pen technician intuition, and the setting selection on our Plasma Pen device, experienced users can change their plasma administration technique to suit each individual client’s needs and skin type. Our impressive, in-depth Plasma Pen Treatment Masterclasses give you the skills and knowledge needed to be able to safely administer specialist Plasma Pen treatments.
Skin tightening & repair
As we age, our skin’s natural production of collagen molecules slows down dramatically – leading to a deflationary effect on the surface of our skin. This causes us to get fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin as we get older. As the scaffolding of our skin deteriorates, it loses its natural laxity and texture, as the elastin that underpins our skin’s elasticity begins to wear out. Plasma Pen fibroblsating treatments can support this loss in structure with our range of non-invasive, soft-surgical facelifts and skin tightening treatments. Our non-invasive, soft-surgical skin tightening treatment method stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to significantly tighten, repair, and eliminate wrinkles.
First 3-7 days
The innovative fibroblasting treatments with the Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International is known to deliver compressed downtimes, higher velocity recovery, and superior results. Here is what to expect from each stage of the healing journey following a soft-surgery fibroblasting treatment by Plasma Pen.
In the first 3 to 7 days, tiny carbon crusts appear on the skin as a sign of the new epithelial tissue. These carbon crusts serve as a natural and protective biological dressing, that will flake off naturally as the newly formed and rejuvenated skin appears underneath. The fibroblasting treatment with a Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International creates Type 111 collagen, that works to minimize the effect and appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin aging.
1-12 weeks post treatment
The comprehensive healing response is characterized by the strengthening, plumping, inflation, and lifting of the skin. We start to see the reversal of premature degeneration and stimulation of white blood cells, filling in any gaps created through micro-trauma.
12 weeks – 3 years
12 weeks post-treatment, the skin starts to form new blood vessels and release growth factors. These growth factors include “cytokines” – small proteins that help modulate our immune response, our cell aging, and the repair and growth of new cells.
Healing & Aftercare Process
Very few of our clients experience any complications after a Plasma Pen treatment. Our treatments deliver compressed downtimes, quicker recovery, and incredible results. During the healing process, it is important to remember not to pick or scratch at the Plasma crusts. We recommend using topical aloe vera up to three times per day to provide relief from itching, whilst also speeding up the healing process
During the healing process, we recommend you do not use plasters, dressing, makeup, skin creams, or other beauty products. Leaving the skin able to breathe is the best way to enable the skin to heal; so you can look your best! Following Plasma Pen treatments, should take Vitamin C to give your immune system the boost you need to heal quickly. You should also use SPF 50 sunscreen for at least 12 weeks, and avoid sunbeds and sunbathing whilst the skin is healing.
