Very simply, our Plasma Pen is able to significantly tighten, lift, resurface, rejuvenate and regenerate practically any area of the skin.
It is a cost-effective & highly compelling alternative to all other medi-aesthetic procedures you may know – including injectables, fillers, microneedling, laser, mesotherapy, dermabrasion and chemabrasion and most (if not all) elective cosmetic surgery procedures.
Our nitrogen Plasma Pen device delivers soft-surgery plasma fibroblasting with stunning, long lasting and completely natural looking results. It is entirely designed to dramatically repair, reverse and mitigate all the negative effects of ageing by blending our state-of-the-art nitrogen plasma technology with hard science, sophisticated technique, best practice, elite training, world class consultations and the very best pre and post treatment products and aftercare.
As we age our dermal layer thins, less collagen is produced, elastin fibers wear out & these changes in the scaffolding of our skin cause it to wrinkle & sag and to lose laxity & texture – similar to how the scaffolding of a building would lose integrity & collapse if it rusted, weakened & became unable to bear loads.
Our device and pioneering fibroblast technique is specifically designed to dramatically repair, reverse and mitigate these ageing effects and deliver a more youthful appearance using state-of-the-art technology, proven science and best practice techniques.
The internal intermediary we use to create plasma is our hand-piece which converts electrical energy into an electrostatic energy, by introducing voltage between two electrodes separated by an “insulating dielectric barrier” to create an electrical discharge. This is transmitted to our probe by impulse and a gaseous flash/arc of ionized plasma is safely discharged about 1mm above the skin, all within millionths of a second and in a highly controlled and on-demand way.
The external intermediary we use to convert the energy from within our device is gaseous “diatomic molecular nitrogen”. Diatomic molecules are composed of only two atoms which, in our case, are oxygen and nitrogen. We administer that energy in its gaseous form (nitrogen plasma) and transmit that energized gas in a completely non-contact way to the skin’s surface – from above – via our applicator tip/probe.
The nitrogen plasma energy that we create transfers to the skins epidermal layer whilst, simultaneously, it heats and disrupts the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. In doing so, we intentionally create a dual zone of micro-trauma which comprises of a superficial zone of outer thermal micro-damage to the epidermis and then, simultaneously, a deeper zone of inner thermal modification in the dermis – especially to the fibroblasts. That’s why we often call the treatment “fibroblasting”.
Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body and the only cells that can make Type III collagen. Type III collagen synthesis into tougher Type I collagen over a period of about 3 months. Type I collagen is what provides the strength in our skins dense connective tissues.
Most fibroblasts are inactive and are actually called fibrocytes. These fibrocytes will rarely undergo cell division and will not produce collagen unless they are specifically re-activated by a wound healing process or inflammatory response. Plasma Pen does precisely that.
While often described as the fourth state of matter, plasma is actually a gas. Unlike ordinary neutral gases though, plasma is made up of positively charged and ionized molecules which are able to roam freely and fast. Plasma gas is thus able to do things that ordinary gases simply cannot do such as conduct electricity, create magnetic fields and enable electrostatic interactions. Plasma gases exhibit coherent, collective qualities that neutral gases don’t and this makes them dynamic yet controllable. We see plasma in action all the time – plasma televisions and neon signs are both good examples. In the case of Plasma TV’s, a gas such as argon is injected between two glass panels and an electrical current is passed through the gas enabling it to glow and emit specific colors. The science behind plasma goes back well over a century to people like Tesla so we didn’t invent it. Nor were we the first ones to commercialize it. We have however miniaturized and perfected it.
