Plasma Pen Charlotte NC
Plasma Pen Skin Tightening Treatments Now Available at CAMI Med Spa!
At Carolina Age Management Institute (CAMI), we often hear from patients who want a non-invasive way to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate their skin. One of the answers we can offer is the Plasma Pen treatment. This is one of the world’s most sophisticated skin tightening and rejuvenation treatments for wrinkles as well as for dull, saggy skin. We are pleased to offer the plasma pen in Charlotte, NC.
What is the Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen is an advanced, non-invasive skin tightening treatment that triggers natural collagen production, resulting in tighter, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin. The Plasma Pen Charlotte NC is a popular treatment option for patients, not just because it offers quick and long-lasting results but because it can be used on several areas of the face, neck, and body.
Some of the most common areas for Plasma Pen skin tightening treatment include:
- Upper eyelid
- Lower eyelids
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Smoker’s lines
- Lifting of the mid-face area
- Lifting of the neck
- Removing of skin tags and moles
How Does Plasma Pen Work?
The Plasma Pen is a unique, energy-based, anti-aging device. It works by prompting the body’s natural response to collagen and elastin production.
The Plasma Pen delivers controlled and predictable energy directly to the skin, creating micro-injuries and triggering the body’s natural healing abilities. More specifically, the Plasma Pen functions by converting nitrogen into a gas, which contracts the skin to achieve a firmer, tighter effect.
The Plasma Pen treatment is sometimes compared with laser therapy, but it is actually much more controlled, focused, and precise, making it easier to achieve the results you want.
What is Plasma Pen Treatment Like?
Before your treatment, you will have a full consultation with one of our providers. This consultation will help us to ensure that you are a good candidate for a safe and successful treatment, and also to confirm that Plasma Pen is the best option for achieving your aesthetic goals.
If you decide to move ahead with Plasma Pen in Charlotte, NC, we will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. This ensures that you do not feel any physical discomfort during the procedure itself. The numbing cream may be reapplied throughout the treatment to keep you as comfortable as can be.
The Plasma Pen itself is a handheld device, and it can be used in a couple of different ways. Sometimes we use a “spraying” effect, which provides a more general resurfacing effect. The spraying method may be combined with “dotting” to address specific lines and wrinkles.
What is the Recovery Like?
Because the Plasma Pen technique is non-surgical and does not require anesthesia or surgical incisions, the downtime is relatively minimal. With that said, patients can anticipate several days of redness and swelling. When the dotting technique is used, there may also be some scabbing. For most patients, the swelling will subside after about three days, while the scabs fall off within four or five days. After a week or so, you will really see evidence of refreshed and revitalized skin.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Most patients who have Plasma Pen in Charlotte, NC see results after about a week. With that said, you should expect your results to improve as your body has more time to heal. As more collagen and elastin are produced, you may find that your skin quality improves over the course of three or four weeks.
How Long Do Plasma Pen Results Last?
One of the most common questions we get about Plasma Pen: How long do the results last? The short answer is that it can vary from one patient to the next, but usually, the results will last for anywhere from one to three years. Note that you can come in for “touch ups” in order to extend your Plasma Pen results.
How Many Plasma Pen Treatments Will I Need?
Another common question about Plasma Pen in Charlotte, NC: How many total treatment sessions will I need? It all depends on the types of results you’re looking to achieve, but many patients are able to get their desired outcome with just a single treatment. In some cases, two treatments may be needed, but seldom more than that.
