Naples Medspa Explains How Plasma Pen Therapy Reduces Signs of Aging

If you’re looking for minimally invasive, non-surgical alternatives to treat wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and other signs of aging, you might want to look into Plasma Fibroblast Therapy. Also known as a “Plasma Pen” Treatment, the procedure uses targeted plasma energy to trigger tissue regeneration within the epidermal and deeper layers of the skin. Tru Glō Medspa is pleased to now offer this innovative, FDA-approved, anti-aging therapy to its southwest Florida-area clients.  

Unlike injectable fillers that decrease wrinkles and lines by adding volume to the skin, or muscle relaxants that help ease tension in the skin that cause wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging, Plasma Pen treatment stimulates your body’s own natural processes to generate positive skin improvements. The treatment is also proving to be a viable alternative for other skin conditioning procedures, such as laser therapies, or the more invasive plastic surgeries, such as face and neck lifts.    

How Plasma Pen Therapy Works its Magic

Plasma fibroblast therapy targets collagen and protein producing cells called fibroblasts that are located in the secondary layer of skin known as the dermis. Fibroblasts play a crucial role in wound healing and help maintain the skin’s firmness. As we age, collagen production slows, existing collagen weakens, and skin tissues soften, all of which leads to wrinkles, lines, sagging, and other skin imperfections. However, by stimulating fibroblasts deep within the skin by simulating skin injury, the fibroblasts are encouraged to naturally rebuild significant amounts of collagen, which re-tightens looser areas of skin and helps reduce the appearance of various skin imperfections.

Plasma energy is delivered into targeted areas of the skin by a pen-like device developed by Neoskin—thus the moniker “Plasma Pen Treatment.” While the plasma energy itself induces skin-tightening tissue contraction in the upper skin layers, the energy also causes just enough trauma to the deeper layers of skin to engage the fibroblasts. These in turn produce significant amounts of skin-building collagen that help renew and firm all skin layers. Results are generally long-lasting due to the combined effects of the initial tissue contraction and renewed collagen production. 

Plasma Pen Treatment Targets Numerous Skin Problems and Areas

Plasma Pen treatment can be used to address a variety of skin issues on the face, neck, stomach, and any area of the body that can benefit from skin tightening. Skin conditions that Plasma Pen treatment can treat include:

  • Crow’s Feet
  • Fine Lines
  • Marionette Lines
  • Frown Lines
  • Smoker’s Lines
  • Neck Lines and Turkey Neck
  • Forehead Lines
  • Scars
  • Freckles
  • Stretch Marks
  • Drooping and Sagging Skin
  • Moles
  • Skin Tags
  • Age Spots

Your Plasma Pen Treatment at Tru Glō Medspa

Plasma Pen Treatment at Tru Glō Medspa generally takes between an hour to an hour and a half depending upon the areas treated. After numbing cream is applied to the targeted areas, the plasma pen is used to direct plasma energy into the skin through a dot-like grid pattern of the targeted area.

Clients typically describe the procedure as mildly uncomfortable and the amount of subsequent downtime is generally based more on appearances than pain or discomfort. This is because the treatment leaves patients with a series of small red dots across the treated area that take several days to heal. Clients also experience redness, swelling, and mild scabbing in the days following the procedure. Swelling can last up to three days and scabbing typically clears within a week. For optimal healing clients should follow the after-care protocols provided to them.

Skin tightening results are usually immediately noticeable, though cumulative improvements will continue to become more apparent over the ensuing three months. Depending upon the degree of skin laxity and desired results, some treated areas may require more than one Plasma Pen Treatment session.

Definitely 5 star!

Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!

Erica M

Highly Recommend

Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.

I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.
