There was a time when skin tightening and rejuvenation required surgery. At San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery, we are proud to offer our clients the Plasma Pen, an FDA-approved, non-invasive way to tighten your skin, reignite collagen production, and make unwanted wrinkles less noticeable. Schedule your consultation today with Nurse and Master Injector, Cynthia Durieux, with over 28 years of experience in the field of aesthetics, to find out if our San Antonio Plasma Pen treatment is what you’re looking for.
The Plasma Pen is a device that tightens the skin, lessens the appearance of wrinkles, lifts drooping eyelids, smooths skin, and so much more! It is a non-surgical way to achieve a more youthful appearance. This Plasma technology is FDA approved.
At San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery, we are proud to offer Subnovii, the most advanced Plasma technology on the market. Subnovii is FDA approved. This Plasma Pen uses low-frequency+ (LF+) technology, resulting in an accurate application of the treatment and less recovery time for patients.
Physics is what makes the Plasma Pen work wonders, without having to touch the skin. The Plasma device delivers a plasma fibroblast therapy, also known as plasma skin resurfacing. As plasma technology is used, low-frequency energy creates a fine layer of ionized gas or plasma. From this sublimation, a wound is created, and the tissue below the skin is shocked. This fibroblast activity increases collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elasticity in the skin.
Certain skin types may not react to the treatment favorably, so it is important to contact San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery today to schedule your consultation to discuss your options.
Plasma Pen is a non-surgical skin treatment that helps to:
With the Plasma Pen treatment, we can target specific areas of concern on the face and neck, including:
The Plasma Pen allows you to reverse the signs of aging without surgery or major skin treatments. Your skin will feel tighter and look more youthful. Areas that seemed to have dragged or wrinkled over the years will be lifted and look and feel smoother.
Plasma Pen treatment can be somewhat uncomfortable for some individuals. Of course this depends, as not everyone has the same tolerance for pain, and some areas of the body can be more sensitive to treat than others. Due to these reasons, the area being treated will be numbed with a numbing cream in advance. You may feel a heating sensation or pricking during your treatment, but this is usually rather mild.
Patients are not expected to take time off of work or their daily lives while healing - it all depends on their comfort level. Since the plasma device creates a wound on the skin, expect scabs for up to 10 days. This is normal when getting plasma pen treatment. Having scabs may prompt you to change your schedule. Your skin may also feel tight and itchy. Your skin may look pink once the scabbing naturally falls off, but the redness goes away over time.
Microneedling focuses more on improving the skin’s tone and texture and diminishing the appearance of scarring, stretch marks, enlarged pores, or hyperpigmentation. Some patients may need to get microneedling treatment routinely until they have reached their desired results.
Microneedling results are not instant and may take between three to nine months to notice the full extent. With Plasma Pen treatments, results may be seen immediately, and they will continue to improve for up to six months. Plasma Pen treatments also help to smooth, tighten, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you are interested in our Subnovii Plasma Pen, San Antonio nurse, and master injector, Cynthia Durieux, can go over your goals and discuss if it’s the best option for you. During your consultation, she can also answer any questions or address any concerns. Call today to schedule a consultation.
Like almost everything these days, you can find Plasma Pens online that you can buy. Some areas of the web may make the claim that you can do plasma fibroblast therapy at home using your own plasma pen. However, this is never a good idea. There are no regulations on how these pens get made, and they have the potential to cause significant harm, such as facial burns.
Take into consideration that you are still aging, which we can’t stop, but we can help your collagen production by virtually turning back the clock with the Plasma device. Your results can last anywhere from three years or longer. If you feel like you need a touch-up, Dr. Ortegon will be happy to do so.
Scarring should not be a result after Plasma treatment. The scabbing that normally occurs after the Plasma treatment naturally falls off within ten days, and the redness will decrease shortly after.
Plasma Pen costs anywhere between $500 and $1,000. The final cost depends on what you will have treated with the plasma device. Schedule a consultation at San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery to get a good idea of how much your treatment may cost.
