Board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Cara Downey and Dr. Jamal Bullocks, and their expert team of professionals are proud to offer Plasma Pen™ treatments to residents of Houston, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and the neighboring communities in east Texas.
What is the Plasma Pen™?
Plasma Pen™ is the world’s most advanced non-invasive skin tightening treatment available that helps lift and tighten loose and sagging skin. It helps reverse facial aging by rejuvenating wrinkles and dull skin. The Plasma Pen™ works by converting electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen. The pen never touches the skin. Instead, it emits the converted plasma gas to the skin’s surface. This results in micro-trauma to the skin as well as thermal disruption within the deeper dermal tissue. This is known as fibroblasting. The trauma and thermal conduction to the dermis results in cellular activity that stimulates collagen and elastin production.
How Much Does a Plasma Pen™ Session Cost?
The cost of your Plasma Pen™ treatment will be dependent on a number of factors, including what areas are being treated, how many areas are treated, and how many treatment sessions are necessary. At Heights Plastic Surgery, we accept cash and all major credit cards. We are also happy to offer financing through CareCredit® for our patients.
How is a Plasma Pen™ Treatment Performed?
Depending on the size of your treatment area, your Plasma Pen™ session should take between 60-90 minutes. Prior to starting your treatment, Dr. Downey or Dr. Bullocks will apply a topical anesthetic to the area being treated. This ensures your comfort during the procedure. Once the numbing agent has been applied, the Plasma Pen™ will be strategically and carefully passed over the treatment area, never touching your skin.
What Can I Expect After My Plasma Pen™ Treatment?
The Plasma Pen™ is minimally invasive, so it requires little downtime. However, you should expect some minor redness and swelling post-treatment. In addition, dry, flaky skin and some scabbing may appear at the treatment site in the days following your session. Once the flaky skin and scabs have fallen off, you will be left with beautiful and rejuvenated skin.
Am I A Good Candidate for the Plasma Pen™?
Good candidates for the Plasma Pen™ are in good general health and have realistic expectations of what results are possible from the given treatment. The Plasma Pen™ is ideal for individuals who are currently experiencing loose and sagging skin on the face and other areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, and breasts. The Plasma Pen™ is an excellent option for those who desire an eyelift but do not desire to undergo invasive blepharoplasty. Other skin conditions often treated with the Plasma Pen™ include:
- Forehead lines and wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines and jowls
