Having eye bags, lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet can be devastating. These are often signs of skin sagging, and they develop due to loss of collagen or over-exposure to Ultraviolet rays. Fortunately, several treatments are available that can help with skin rejuvenation. One of the new and modern treatments is the plasma pen treatment, which can tighten and improve the appearance of the skin.
What is Plasma Pen Treatment?
Plasma pen treatment, also called Fibroblast therapy, is a non-invasive procedure that targets fibroblast cells. These cells produce collagen and protein and help in skin tightening and wound healing. The therapy uses a pen-like tool to discharge high-frequency electric current. The tip of the device does not touch directly touch the skin but rather targets the small holes in the skin’s layer.
What are Fibroblasts, and Why Are They Important?
Fibroblasts are connective tissue cells that contribute to skin tightening, wound healing, and eliminate dead skin cells. These cells are reproduced when damaged or to carry out regeneration work of injured areas. Fibroblast cells create new tissue by producing collagen.
Fibroblast cells can be found in almost every part of the body, including connective tissue, blood vessels, muscles, and nerves.
In the aging process, Fibroblasts play a very important role in collagen production. This helps to prevent loss of elasticity and tightness of the skin.
According to several research studies, fibroblasts cells tend to lose their function or decrease in number as we age.
How Does the Fibroblast Therapy Help?
When the electric current penetrates the skin, it breaks down the protein, promotes skin regeneration, and stimulates fibroblast activity. Furthermore, it causes skin contraction or tightening. This will give you youthful and radiant skin.
The therapy can also treat various skin conditions like acne, photo gaining or age spots, wrinkled skin, and eye bags.
What is the Difference Between Plasma Pen Treatment and Botox?
Plasma pen treatment and Botox work to rejuvenate your skin, but the two are different. Fibroblast treatment is a cosmetic procedure that uses high-energy plasma to treat the skin.
Botox works by freezing the facial muscles and is often used to treat fine lines rather than wrinkles. Furthermore, it does not target muscular activity at all.
The fibroblast treatment does not manipulate your skin. Rather, it works to tighten skin by stimulating collagen production beneath the surface of the skin for a smoother appearance rather than by killing muscle activity that causes wrinkles. Plasma Pen Treatment can be used on the same parts of the body as regular Botox, such as forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet around your eyes.
Plasma pen treatments typically are quicker and less expensive than regular Botox. They also tend to last longer than Botox and offer better results. It is vital to consult our doctor at Medspa in Atlanta on which option is the most suitable.
What Can You Expect During the Procedure?
The plasma pen treatment procedure will vary based on where you are getting the treatment, but the general steps include cleaning and applying a numbing cream. The doctor will then proceed to treat the targeted skin area with the plasma pen. This device creates micro-currents on the skin to stimulate the fibroblasts. After the procedure, the doctor will wipe the cream and apply a cooling gel to reduce the burning and tingling sensation. The procedure will last between 30 and 60 minutes. The frequency of the treatment will differ; some people will require one and others multiple.
It takes a couple of weeks for the skin to heal and appear tighter and more firm.
What are the Side Effects?
Side effects are present with Plasma Pen Treatment, as it is a cosmetic procedure. The healing process and the side effects will take place over time as the cells in your body heal and grow. You can experience some soreness, but nothing like what you would get with surgery or laser treatment.
You may also experience swelling, redness, light or dark spots, and skin pealing.
