Loss of skin suppleness, glow, and elasticity is a part of aging. However, the age at which it may occur varies from person to person. This is so because various factors influence our skin’s aging process, and they manifest due to distinct causes. First, let’s understand this aging process of our skin:
How Does The Skin Age?
Collagen and glycosaminoglycans are the extracellular matrices (ECM) in our skin that promote elasticity and suppleness. They are produced by a connective tissue called ‘fibroblasts’ present in the layers of our skin.
While we’re young, these fibroblasts produce Type-1 collagens in a sufficient amount, making the skin look curvy and flexible. But as we age, this collagen production drops significantly, making it look more distorted, weak, wrinkly, and saggy in its texture.
How Does Plasma Pen Fibroblasting Help?
Fibroblasts also play a critical role in healing skin wounds by boosting collagen production. The plasma pen treatment aims at harnessing this very quality of the fibroblasts.
Using electrical energy, the plasma pen releases a plasma stream that ionizes nitrogen and oxygen gases in the atmosphere and produces an arc discharge against the skin, causing micro-injuries to some of the deeper dermal layers.
Since the injuries are minor, the fibroblasts are stimulated to quickly produce more Type-1 collagen and regenerate new skin cells. During this healing process, fibroblasts also cause the following changes:
● It remodels the dermal structure of cells.
● It Increases elastin production and tightens the skin.
● It triggers various growth factors of the skin.
● It removes dead skin cells and other cellular trash.
● It enhances the thickness and suppleness of the skin.
The Plasma Pen used during this therapy is an FDA approved, CE approved device with a pen-like shape with either wired or wireless connection. Plasma Pen Fibroblasting is a non-invasive, soft-surgical facelift and skin tightening treatment that efficiently reduces wrinkles, loss of collagen, and sagging skin. This treatment is also called fibroblast therapy. It is best suited for people with skin types 1 and 3 on the Fitzpatrick scale.
How Is The Plasma Pen Treatment Performed?
This is a short, non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime. However, you might feel some pain or irritation on the skin, which is why our skin therapist will apply some topical numbing cream before the treatment.
If the treatment is to be performed around the mouth, our therapist may also ask you to undergo a viral infection test to ensure that you don’t have herpes simplex.
The primary goal of this procedure is to create shallow and narrow zones of cell removal in the upper layer of skin so that small contractions are created.
Once you’re prepped and relaxed, our therapist will start moving the Plasma Pen over the targeted skin surface evenly and consistently. Depending on the total area of the skin to be treated, your session might last between 10 to 45 minutes.
Once the desired skin surface has been treated with the Plasma Pen, the therapist will apply a soothing ointment or cream that’ll also help the skin cells heal faster and achieve the best skin tightening effect.
What Are The Benefits Of Plasma Pen Fibroblasting?
Apart from enhancing skin’s elasticity, the Plasma Pen is also known to reduce other skin problems such as Fine lines, seborrheic keratoses, skin tags, pigmentation, moles, aging spots, freckles, scars, stretch marks, etc.
With the advanced Plasma Pens, you can target the micro-regions over the face, such as the lip lines, smile lines, marionette lines, mild sagging jawline, crow’s-feet, or sagging eyelids.
You may require at most three sessions separated by six weeks to achieve the best results, but most people experience excellent skin enhancement right after their first session, and these results are known to last for over 3 to 5 years.
It’s non-invasive, so there is no bruising or bleeding after the treatment. And when performed by trained specialists, it is highly safe and efficient.
