How Does Plasma Pen Work?

While most skin tightening and rejuvenation devices use needling (microneedling), radiofrequency energy (Thermage), or lasers (Fraxel), the Plasma Pen utilizes electrostatic energy delivered through a small tipped applicator. These energy impulses discharge precise flashes of plasma in milisecond bursts, triggering the body’s natural healing and anti-aging processes in the epidermal and dermal layers. Yes, your own body does the rest, growing new collagen and elastin to improve skin tone and texture.

What to Expect From a Plasma Pen Treatment at Ultra Smooth Skin

Ultra Smooth Skin is a nationally recognized aesthetics practice by innovators in the field of medical aesthetics. Our expertly trained, medically-licensed aesthetic providers consistently deliver high-quality care and beautiful results in three convenient valley locations. Combined, our team has decades of experience in facial anti-aging coupled with an expert understanding of facial anatomy and skin care.

Your Plasma Pen Consultation

During your initial consultation, one of our providers will evaluate your skin and discuss your rejuvenation goals and expectations. We will take a full medical history to ensure you’re a good candidate for the Plasma Pen in Scottsdale. If we determine that Plasma Pen is a good solution for your needs, we will proceed with treatment; if not, we will discuss other options for facial rejuvenation and anti-aging available in our Phoenix-area medical spa.

Your Plasma Pen Procedure

Treatment begins with the application of a topical numbing cream. Your procedure time will vary depending on the size of your treatment area, with treatment times ranging from 30-120 minutes. Once we have finished the Plasma Pen procedure, we will apply a topical aftercare cream to the treatment area. This aids in post-treatment healing.

Plasma Pen Expected Results and Follow-up

Plasma Pen results are virtually immediate and last about three years. For a few days following your treatment, you will experience some skin flaking, as Plasma Pen triggers skin cell turnover. This peeling helps reveal fresh, youthful skin.

For the next several weeks and even months, collagen production gradually increases. This improves youthful plumpness, giving your skin the support structure it needs to lift and tighten.

Patients can expect to see full results after six months of natural collagen building following a single Plasma Pen treatment.


Is Plasma Pen safe?

Plasma Pen in Scottsdale delivers results without surgery or injectables. It requires no sutures, scalpels, or injectable anesthetic. It is also non-ablative and chemical-free. Our Plasma Pen is a CE Certified device using a safe technique that is well-established in the industry. Plasma Pen is considered a low-risk procedure with a rapid recovery and minimal side effects.

What areas can be treated with Plasma Pen?

At Ultra Smooth Skin, we use Plasma Pen in Scottsdale specifically on the upper lip, corners of the mouth, and around the eyes. If you have skin that is loose, wrinkled, or sagging, Plasma Pen may be the solution for you. If not, we have numerous options to help provide you with the youthful look you desire.

Where will my Plasma Pen treatment be performed?

Plasma pen is non-surgical; therefore, we can perform it right here in our licensed aesthetics practices in the Phoenix-area. Laser services are performed in our Scottsdale location at Gainey.

Does the Plasma Pen treatment hurt?

Patients reported little-to-no discomfort during treatment. A topical numbing cream is recommended before treatment to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Following the treatment, your skin may continue to feel slightly numb. This is normal. Skin sensitivity is normal for about three days following treatment.

How much does Plasma Pen cost?

Pricing varies depending on your treatment area. As results last up to three years, this procedure is considered very cost-effective. Scroll down to view pricing and exclusive offers available at Ultra Smooth Skin.
