What Is a Plasma Pen? Do Plasma Pens Really Work?

Woman With Plasma Pen | Bare N Beautiful in Anderson, SC

Wrinkles have always been a problem when it comes to aging. It is one of the most common signs when you start to mature. Though wrinkles can be a pain in losing your confidence, many procedures can combat this worry. 

Plasma Pen, for example, is one effective treatment to help you eliminate those lines on your face. It’s the latest cosmetic procedure to fight wrinkles, loss of collagen, and sagging skin. Because when we start to age, there are many causes for our skin to sag. 

The Plasma Pen is a method for treating many skin problems, such as loss of elasticity, sagging, and wrinkles, usually fixed with fillers or plastic surgery.

Suppose you’re curious to learn more about this treatment. Check out this post. Our team at Bare N Beautiful is here to assist and help you! 

What exactly is a Plasma Pen?

The Plasma Pen is the most advanced, non-invasive device for lifting, tightening, and rejuvenating the skin. It is used to treat wrinkles, sagging, and dull skin. It is a device that has been approved by both the FDA and the CE. This treatment uses fibroblast therapy, which is a way to get the skin to make more collagen.

How do you use the Plasma Pen?

Electrostatic energy is sent to the skin’s surface by the Plasma Pen. As the device sends power to the skin, it burns the top layer of the skin. This is done to tighten and smooth the skin. The idea is that the skin will get better in tone, texture, and elasticity as it heals on its own, but this does not always happen.

What parts of the body can the Plasma Pen treat?

The treatment works very well on all parts of the body, especially on the face and neck. It also works with the lines around the mouth when a person smiles.

You can also treat it with scars and marks left behind by acne, getting better looking, eyes with crow’s feet, face wrinkles, and jowl. There are instances where the folds or creases that go from the corners of the mouth to the chin in a straight line can get healed with a plasma pen. 

You can also try a plasma pen if you have nasal labial folds, necklines, and stretchmarks. 

Treatment Process

Sessions with the Plasma Pen usually last about an hour. Treatments for larger areas, like stretch marks or sagging skin on the arms, can take up to two hours and may even be broken into several sessions.

Are the effects of treatment with a plasma pen long-lasting?

Like most non-surgical beauty treatments, the effects of your Plasma Pen treatment may wear off over time or need to be kept up with more treatments. So, how long will it be? People who are used to going to their esthetician more than once a year for fillers or injections may be surprised by the answer.

With a successful Plasma Pen treatment, collagen production is sped up so much that the effects can be seen for years. It usually has benefits that last at least three or four years and sometimes even longer.

Does treatment with a plasma pen hurt?

Plasma Pen patients don’t feel much pain and don’t have to change their daily or social lives much. Most people treated with a Plasma Pen feel mild discomfort during the procedure. 

Your esthetician will start the Plasma Pen treatment by numbing the area that you will treat with prescription-grade topical anesthetics. When necessary, numbing agents can be put on again between passes. Many patients don’t feel any pain at all.

Plasma Pen Alternatives

Many good alternatives to Plasma Pen treatment work just as well and don’t leave scars or cause other problems. Here are a few things you can do.


This treatment can help people with wrinkles or fine lines on their forehead or around their eyes because it relaxes the muscles that cause these lines. Dermal fillers, usually made of hyaluronic acid and have names like Voluma, Restylane Defyne or Refyne, or Juvéderm, can also be used to treat your concerns. 


It is also an excellent way to make the skin look younger and eliminate signs of aging. During this treatment, tiny needles are used to make small channels in the skin through which radiofrequency energy is sent. But this treatment isn’t suitable for people who scar easily or get too much color on their skin.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a more precise and modern way to make the skin look younger, boost collagen production, and reduce signs of aging. Reflections Center has many different laser resurfacing options, and our doctors can help you decide which one is best for your skin.

Thread Lift

A thread lift is a way to lift loose or sagging skin without surgery. It uses sutures, which also help the body make more collagen. 

Recovery from Plasma Pen Treatment

Even though the treatment with a Plasma Pen is abrasive on a microscopic level and can cause minor, burn-like wounds around the treated area, these wounds are usually tiny and only cause minor discoloration and swelling. 

The healing from a Plasma Pen treatment is like getting a minimal sunburn or tattoo, and it usually goes away on its own within a few days.

Bruising, swelling, and pain can sometimes last past the healing period. Still, it’s scarce for these symptoms to last more than five to seven days. They can usually be treated with common over-the-counter medicines.

After the procedure, the dermis layers of the skin will continue to heal “behind the scenes” for many weeks. During this long healing process, the skin tightens and makes more collagen, leading to the desired results. 

Because of this, the treated area may look better 12 weeks after your treatment than it did a week after, and the results will be precise for years after that.

Is a Plasma Pen Safe?

Fibroblast skin tightening is safe and has been approved by the FDA. Plasma Pen sessions use your body’s natural ability to heal and grow new cells to refresh and resurface your skin without using chemicals or medicines. 

Plasma Pen is a low-risk procedure done thousands of times for happy clients worldwide. It doesn’t need injections, cuts, or anything in direct contact with the skin.

Still, there are a few times when a patient might want to avoid Plasma Pen treatment or talk to their primary doctor carefully about it:

  • Pregnant or still nursing
  • Tools or medical equipment made of metal near the treatment area
  • Terrible heart problems
  • Diabetes, epilepsy, cancer, or autoimmune diseases can usually make it hard for the body to heal.

Also, Plasma Pen may not work as well on darker skin tones as it does on lighter skin tones.

Before you get any work done with a Plasma Pen, you and your provider should do a full health check to ensure that this therapy is safe and sound.

How much does treatment with a plasma pen cost?

The price of Plasma Pen treatment depends on what kind of treatment you want, how big an area needs to be treated, and how many sessions are required. A quick procedure that costs a few hundred dollars may be able to fix a wrinkle on one part of your face. On the other hand, a full neck lift with Plasma Pen technology can cost more than $1,000.

Quality Plasma Pen work from a trained and experienced provider isn’t always cheap. Still, compared to cosmetic surgery’s financial and physical costs, it is a great deal.
