Overview on Plasma IQ™ Pen

Plasma IQ™ is the latest advancement in aesthetics that delivers focused, controlled plasma energy to safely and effectively create micro-injuries on the skin, renewing and restoring it.

Microbeams of plasma are leveraged in a focused energy treatment, resulting in tightening and retraction of the skin tissues through controlled skin damage.

Why Choose Plasma IQ™ Pen?

Plasma IQ™ has a low risk of side effects. Extreme device precision and controlled energy settings limit the damage of surrounding skin, reduce downtime and improve healing. Plasma IQ treatment can be performed in-office in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the area(s) treated.

Plasma IQ™ Pen is Used To Treat:

  • Eye Lids
  • Lips
  • Stretch Marks
  • Skin Lesions

How Does it Work?

As the device is brought close to the skin during treatment, it ionizes nitrogen gas particles in the air to create a plasma arc that looks like a spark. The plasma arc causes sublimation of the epidermis of the skin; turning a solid into a gas, resulting in immediate skin tightening and retraction in the target area. This method of plasma sublimation is highly targeted and controlled. It does not transfer heat to the surrounding area. The procedure creates tiny brown carbon crusts or scabs in the treated area that persist for approximately one week before dropping off.

The micro-injuries sustained during treatment promote the long-term firming, tightening, and smoothing effects that are part of the natural healing response.

What’s The Treatment Like?

A topical anesthetic is applied to the entire face or specific target areas. The provider will begin by making several passes on sections of your face or specific target areas with the microneedle handpiece. Heat and tingling sensations can be expected as the laser moves across the skin. Depending on the size of the target areas, the procedure may take between 15 to 60 minutes.

What’s The Recovery Time?

This outpatient procedure will entail several days of downtime. Immediately after, treated areas will be red and warm to the touch. Ice packs or a cold compress may be applied for 5 to 10 minutes per hour during the first 5 to 6 hours post-treatment in order to ease discomfort. A thick topical gel may be prescribed to protect and speed up the healing process, and you may be advised to avoid showering for the first few days. The skin will take up to 14 days to shed and heal completely. However, for around 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment, the treated areas will remain pinkish and slightly blotchy. While your skin will already start to show noticeable improvements after the initial recovery, the final results will be revealed in about 3 to 6 months.
