Plasma pens are small handheld medical devices that focus electricity on the surface of the skin, which causes a controlled burn and spreads heat throughout the targeted area.
The Dermavel Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into an electrostatic energy to create artificial nitrogen plasma. Plasma is an ionized gas consisting of positive ions and free electrons in proportions which enables it to conduct electricity. The Plasma Pen device discharges precise flashes of plasma in millisecond bursts, triggering the body’s natural healing and anti-aging processes in the epidermal and dermal layers. Your body then starts produces new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and tone. This treatment is also known as Fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the cells that produce collagen.
The Plasma Pen can be used on the face, around the eyes, neck, around lip and mouth area, marionette lines, smile lines, forehead, jowls and jawline. It is important for anyone considering the Plasma Pen treatment to carefully review the contraindications, aftercare instructions, risks, and skin types that can be safely treated.
Please note that each person's results may vary and Dermavel is not liable for any improper or incorrect use of the plasma pen, nor does it offer any guarantee, or specific results. By using this device you expressly agree that it is at your own risk and that you have a full understanding of how to operate a fibroblast plasma pen safely on yourself or others. Use the product with caution. Before using a plasma pen, make sure that the mole, freckle, or skin tag can safely be removed.
If questions, concerns, doubts; before use, always consult with a GP or licensed professional dermatologist, physician, or medical advisor for professional advice.
Is the Plasma Pen Treatment Painful?
The treatment may be mildly to moderately uncomfortable depending on your pain tolerance and what area you are getting treated. Eyelid procedures (where the skin is at its thinnest) can be more painful for some. Use a numbing cream to reduce any discomfort.

What are the Risks of the Plasma Pen Treatment?
The Plasma Pen is a relatively safe treatment. However, no procedure is without risks and it’s always consult with licensed professional dermatologist, physician or medical advisor to understand the contraindications and risks before treatment.
- Swelling and bruising
- Scabbing and crusting
- Skin discoloration
Post Plasma Pen Treatment
Results are virtually immediate and last up to three years. For 5-14 days following your treatment, you will experience skin sensitivity, mild to moderate redness, swelling, skin crusting and flaking. Swelling usually begins the day after treatment and typically lasts for 5 days. The area treated must not be covered with any type of make-up, mascara, creams or any other products until completely healed. We recommend a cooling gel after treatment to relieve any itching or potential burn-alike effect. It is very important to wait until all the scabs fallen off on their own.
*Please be aware that the days indicated are average healing times but can be increased by other factors. Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the aftercare protocol: no drinking alcohol, no smoking and no picking/scrubbing. If your health is compromised in any way, this can also extend your healing time and negatively affect your results.
If questions, concerns, doubts; before use, always consult with a GP or licensed professional dermatologist, physician, or medical advisor for professional advice. If skin inflammation is detected, and gets worse, contact a medical professional as soon as possible.
