The technical part: There are 4 states of matter, Solid, Liquid, Gas and Plasma. Plasma energy is created when a gas passes through an electromagnetic field to create ionised gas partials in the air between the device tip and the skin. The tiny holes created in the skin with the Plasma Pen turns solid into gas, therefore the plasma energy turns the skin to a gaseous state. This process is called sublimation. When the skin is treated via sublimation, the elastic fibres shrink. This tightens and retracts the skin and the results of this are similar to those of surgery but without the scaring and lengthy downtime.
The Plasma Pen causes a 'micro trauma' to the surface skin tissue to immediately contract and tighten, this creates an instant lift and dramatic skin tightening. The epidermis is rejuvenated as old cells are caused to shed and they are replaced by fresh new cells. Fibroblasts in the dermis are also targeted by thermal disruption and as a result collagen and elastin production, alignment and cross linking is stimulated. This strengthens, plumps, inflates and lifts the structure of the skin over a sustained period of time. We help to re-shape, re-build and strengthen the scaffolding within the dermis to give it renewed elasticity and flexibility.
The treatment helps to activate and release important proteins in the dermis to regulate cell maturation (ageing) which encourages tissue regeneration and repair. The highly accurate and controlled trauma we cause to the epidermis makes the skin dry superficially into tiny carbon crusts which fall off within a few days leaving beautiful, new and rejuvenated skin at the surface. The magic then continues for 12+ weeks - Plasma Pen is the gift that keeps giving!
