The new and innovative Plasma PenⓇ is taking the anti-aging world by storm thanks to its ability to deliver dramatic results without resorting to surgery. At Erasing Time, Kymberly Mariner, RN, and her team are proud to offer this ground-breaking technology at their practice in Woodland Hills, California. If you’d like to explore how the Plasma Pen can erase the effects of time on your skin, call the office or use the online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
The Plasma Pen is a small, handheld device that the team at Erasing Time uses to deliver plasma, which is known as a fourth state of matter (solids, liquids, and gases are the other three). By harnessing the power of plasma, the Plasma Pen creates an electric charge, or arc, through ionization, which allows your aesthetician to create small, controlled “burns” across the surface of your skin without making direct contact.
The team at Erasing Time first applies a numbing cream to your face before they get started, so you should be perfectly comfortable during your procedure.
The Plasma Pen works in two ways. First, the arc that your aesthetician at Erasing Time creates with the Plasma Pen allows them to address and break up surface concerns, such as:
Next, the energy the pen delivers into your skin is absorbed as heat in your epidermis and dermis, which triggers a fibroblast response in your skin. Fibroblasts are the cells largely responsible for your connective tissue, but they mostly lie dormant in your body. The heat the Plasma Pen delivers provides the wake-up call they need to jump into action, creating new collagen and elastin fibers, which rebuild the structural support in your skin, smoothing out wrinkles and tightening sagging tissue.
After your Plasma Pen treatment, you will have small black dots on your face that should dissipate within five days. As well, if you want to remove specific concerns, such as age spots, your skin slowly flakes off in these areas over the week following your treatment, leaving you with a smooth, unblemished surface underneath.
You can apply makeup over the treatment area in as little as three days, so the downtime is considered “social downtime,” which means there’s no downtime outside of steering clear of social events for the first few days.
Once your skin is clear on the surface, understand that the treatment is still working below the surface as new collagen lifts your skin over the weeks following your Plasma Pen session.
