What Is Plasma Pen?

Plasma pen treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure for skin cleaning and skin rejuvenation problem areas.

In the past the only method to treat these areas effectively was with ‘surgical blepharoplasty’. However since the introduction of this innovative technology in 2014, we can now perform safe and results driven skin tightening procedures without the need for needles.

The revolutionary technology removes excess skin by a process called sublimation. The extremely accurate instrument works by creating a plasma (electric) arc which works by heating the skin and creating increased collagen formation locally. The treatment does not use a scalpel or a laser to remove excess skin, thereby avoiding all risks inherent to the traditional intervention. The treatment is performed without cutting, burning or removing excess skin or fat.

If you are unhappy with the skin around your eyes, or with baggy lower eyelids, or droopy upper eyelid skin and you do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure plasma pen may be the treatment for you.

Our experts and specialists take the time to truly understand the reasons why you may be considering cosmetic surgery, whether that be to improve self-confidence, or to overcome an illness or injury. And it's only then when we start to discuss the best options for you.

What Can I Expect?

A typical session will last around 30 to 45 minutes, although patients are required to attend the appointment an hour prior to the actual procedure to have topical numbing cream applied to the area to be treated. Patients may experience swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area following your treatment and this may last up to three days. Crustations will resolve within 5-7 days, but can be covered with liquid foundation. We will discuss your treatment and what you can expect during your consultation.

Most people see noticeable results after the first treatment, although some may require more than one treatment and this is subject to your personal expectation. A bespoke treatment plan will be discussed with you during your initial consultation session.
