The revolutionary plasma pen is a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures and would only require 3 to 5 days of downtime. It utilises plasma technology to vaporise the skin without coming into physical contact with it, a tightening effect can be seen immediately afterwards. Fun fact: Plasma technology’s roots actually stem from NASA!
So why should one opt for plasma pen rather than surgery?
First of all, plasma pen treatments do not involve any form of scalpels, scissors or knife coming into contact with your skin. Perfect for those who feel queasy with blood, needles and all that jazz. There’s also a much shorter downtime with an average of 10 days as opposed to surgery which can take a couple of months for swelling and scars to disappear. This means you can be up and running, picking up the kids and heading to work in lightning speed but with a rejuvenated look! Another important factor is the cost of plasma pen in relation to surgical procedures, it’s much more cost effective and nicer to your wallet. Areas are generally less than $1000 each as opposed to a face lift that can run into the upper thousands OUCH! And with permanent results that last around 2-3 years, that’s all the more reason to consider plasma pen for your next wrinkle reduction treatment!
Now I’ve been going on about how there’s much less pain and downtime, but sadly with beauty comes pain. Numbing cream will be applied 30 minutes before the procedure however there may still be sensations of discomfort. Fret not, it’s definitely on the lower end of the pain spectrum!
The rate at which you heal is also dependent on how healthy you are and your lifestyle. If you have great self-control skills and are able to avoid drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes and picking at your scabs, both your healing time and final results will be maximised. Now if that’s not a great reason to quit smoking and drinking, I don’t know what is!
