Plasma Pen is our newest machine that harnesses the power of plasma, a fourth state matter (Solid, Liquid, Gas, Plasma) to contract and tighten the surface skin tissue, creating immediate lift, dramatic skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
The Plasma Pen treatment replaces old skin cells with new ones while stimulating collagen and elastin production, strengthening, plumping and lifting the facial structure.
BEFORE & AFTER
WHAT IS PLASMA PEN?
Plasma Pen is a non-invasive treatment that can improve the appearance of a range of skin concerns, including lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars. This hand-held device generates plasma where a visible smoke is produced due to the sublimating process. Sublimation is the physical term for the shift from solid to gas. The device heats the dermis in the targeted area, which begins to shed post treatment, allowing new fresher skin to form. At the same time, new collagen begins to form
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This is a hand-held device which generates plasma where a visible smoke is produced due to the sublimating process. Sublimation is the physical term for the shift from solid to gas. The device heats the dermis in the targeted area, which begins to shed post treatment, allowing new fresher skin to form. At the same time, new collagen begins to form.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?

WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY TREATMENT?
We begin the treatment with a thorough double cleanse of the skin. This is followed by a powerful deep-cleansing raspberry exfoliant. we disinfect the area to be treated and if required we then apply numbing cream which we leave on for about 15 mins. We then use the hand held device to treat the desired area tightening, lifting and stimulating new collogen and elastin production. After this we apply a saline solution to clean the area followed with deeply penetrating hydrating serums and an SPF30+ sunscreen
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
A topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to your skin for 10-15 mins prior to your treatment to numb the skin. Depending on your pain threshold some clients may still feel the treatment, while others just feel a bit of pressure. Our aim is to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
