What is the Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen is the world’s leading FDA approved plasma application device. It is a non-invasive fibroblasting sublimation treatment suitable for delicate skin areas.
Using a continuous source of direct energy, the Plasma Pen ionizes nitrogen and oxygen in the air to create a plasma gas. A small plasma flash is emitted from the handpiece and applied to the treatment area, creating micro injuries on the top layer of the skin.
The Plasma Pen encourages the skin to produce collagen and tighten, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, loose skin, and pigmentation.
What can I expect during my Plasma Pen treatment?
The average treatment lasts 20—30 minutes, with a 30-minute pre-treatment application of topical numbing gel. and is mildly to moderately uncomfortable. Anesthetics may also be used during the procedure.
The Plasma Pen treatment is ideal for candidates with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II and III. Skin types IV—VI are not compatible with this treatment.
How can I prepare for my Plasma Pen treatment?
For 4–6 weeks, prior to the treatment, the patient should follow these guidelines:
- Limit exposure to the sun, avoid tanning and tanning beds
- Avoid any other procedures (such as Botox or Laser therapies)
- Discontinue the use of topical Retin-A, vitamin C serum, and chemical peels
- If possible, pretreat skin with a tyrosinase inhibitor, as recommended by your doctor
Patients must remove eyelash extensions and contact lenses 72 hours before the treatment. If the treatment is performed in the eye area, patients should wear eye glasses home.
Please notify your doctor if you have any allergies, or pre-existing medical conditions.
What can I expect after the procedure?
The initial healing process lasts 3–7 days and may result in some minor swelling, dryness, or tightness. Small crusts will appear on the treated area, avoid picking at them as this will increase the healing time.
During the healing process the patient must not apply bandages, ice packs, makeup, or non-doctor prescribed products to the skin. Cleanse daily with lukewarm water and a lint-free cloth. Avoid direct exposure in the shower.
It is advisable to not exercise for 7 days following the treatment as sweat, heat or steam may add to the swelling.
Until completely healed from the procedure, avoid using any exfoliating skincare (such as products with glycolic acid) to avoid irritation. Make sure to always apply a doctor-approved SPF when outdoors, and avoid direct sun exposure.
Full recovery can take from several weeks to several months, depending on the patient. Avoid tanning and saunas for 10–12 weeks (longer if possible) following the treatment.
What should I expect from the results?
Patients can expect to see decreased wrinkles and fine lines, less pigmentation, and an overall rejuvenation of the skin. Results will appear as the patient heals from the procedure, usually taking several months to see the final result. The results from the Plasma Pen can last several years.

I had the best experience with the staff at Pelle. I was greeted with smiling faces and immediately felt right at home. Each person asked how I was doing, and if there was anything additional they could do. My nurse was knowledgeable and did not try to upsell me on any additional products, and made me feel very comfortable. I am so glad I chose to start my skin journey with Pellé!
