As we age, the scaffolding of our skin deteriorates which causes it to wrinkle and sag. Our dermal layer thins, we produce less and less collagen, we lose laxity and texture and the elastin that underpins our skins elasticity (not least by cross-linking with collagen just like the brackets on a scaffold) begin to wear out, deform, and ‘slide’ over the collagen fibrils. This prevents them from maintaining a solid structure.
What is The Plasma Pen?
Plasma Pen is the world’s most advanced, non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, and sagging, dull skin. The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved, CE approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy, a technique used to stimulate production of collagen in the skin.
Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen and transmits that energized gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen.
Parallel to the rapid formation of new epithelial tissue which tightens and lifts the skin, (the superficial healing process), Plasma Pen treatment initiates a comprehensive healing response over the coming 12 weeks. This healing process is best characterized by extensive dermal remodeling that includes neocollagenesis (new collagen synthesis), neoelastogenesis (the production of elastin), cross-linking between collagen and elastin fibrils and the reversal of elastotic change (the premature degeneration of dermal elastic tissue).
The main clinical outcomes of a Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International treatment are:
Unlike treatments such as microneedling; there is no blood, there are no open wounds and Plasma Pen benefits from a unique ability to always work at a predictable depth of tissue injury. Dovetailing this with exclusive 0.2mm and 0.4mm nano-probes and consistent, on-demand plasma delivery helps underscore a rapid healing process with minimal downtime, rapid recovery and long-lasting results of around 3 years (with many effects permanent).
Plasma Pen is arguably the only treatment outside of plastic surgery which can be safely performed on the eyelids (non-surgical blepharoplasty). With this device, we are actually able to perform most cosmetic surgery procedures with similar effects (including facelifts, jawline augmentations, neck lifts, non-surgical rhinoplasty, tummy tucks, breast lifts and beyond) – but all in a completely non-surgical and non-invasive way.
The Plasma Pen can also be used to remove/reduce moles and skin tags and improve the appearance of scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation.
