What Plasma Pen does

Nitrogen plasma energy transfers to the skin’s epidermal layer, whilst also heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure. This micro-trauma affects the superficial epidermis, as well as a deeper zone within the dermis – particularly the fibroblasts.

Plasma Pen is an innovative fibroblasting device. The unique fractional and permeating tips by Plasma Pen work to evenly distribute plasma at a lower temperature over a wider area; whilst Plasma Pen nano-probes deliver concentrated nitrogen plasma gas non-invasively to the epidermal layer of the skin. The results are almost instant, and in many cases will last up to 3 years!

What is the Plasma Pen treatment process?

Step 1:

With the Plasma Pen, the precision plasma arc causes immediate superficial micro-trauma to the upper epidermal layer of the skin.

Step 2:

This micro-trauma stimulates the healing process for the creation of new, rejuvenated, tight and smooth tissue over the next 12 weeks.

Step 3:

During this phase collagen and elastin are produced, plumping the structure of the skin to soften and eliminate lines and wrinkles. 


Create artificial plasma to deliver fibroblasting treatments

Simply put, our innovative Plasma Pen device converts electrical energy into electrostatic energy to create nitrogen plasma gas. Through a combination of highly trained Plasma Pen technician intuition, and the setting selection on our Plasma Pen device, experienced users can change their plasma administration technique to suit each individual client's needs and skin type. Our impressive, in-depth Plasma Pen Treatment Masterclasses give you the skills and knowledge needed to be able to safely administer specialist Plasma Pen treatments.

Skin tightening & repair

As we age, our skin's natural production of collagen molecules slows down dramatically - leading to a deflationary effect on the surface of our skin. This causes us to get fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin as we get older. As the scaffolding of our skin deteriorates, it loses it's natural laxity and texture, as the elastin that underpins our skin's elasticity begins to wear out. Plasma Pen fibroblsating treatments can support this loss in structure with our range of non-invasive, soft-surgical face lifts and skin tightening treatments. Our non-invasive, soft-surgical skin tightening treatment method stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to significantly tighten, repair and eliminate wrinkles.

First 3-7 days

The innovative fibroblasting treatments with the Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International is known to deliver compressed downtimes, higher velocity recovery and superior results. Here is what to expect from each stage of the healing journey following a soft-surgery fibroblasting treatment by Plasma Pen.

In the first 3 to 7 days, tiny carbon crusts appear on the skin as a sign of the new epithelial tissue. These carbon crusts serve as a natural and protective biological dressing, that will flake off naturally as the newly formed and rejuvenated skin appears underneath. The fibroblasting treatment with a Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International creates Type 111 collegan, that works to minimise the effect and appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and skin aging.

1-12 weeks post treatment

The comprehensive healing response is characterised by the strengthening, plumping, inflation and lifting of the skin. We start to see the reversal of premature degeneration and a stimulation of white blood cells, filling in any gaps created through micro-trauma.

12 weeks - 3 years

12 weeks post treatment, the skin starts to form new blood vessels and release growth factors. These growth factors include “cytokines” – small proteins that help modulate our immune response, our cell ageing and the repair and growth of new cells.

Our Most Popular Treatments

Neck Lift

As part of the ageing process, our skin loses its elasticity and the muscles start to slacken. A Plasma Pen Neck Lift can tighten and lift the skin of the neck, without the need for painful invasive surgery.

Crows feet

Crows feet can greatly affect confidence and can make the face appear older than it really is. Careful application of plasma energy can eradicate deep furrows and fine lines around the eyes, for a more youthful look.

Facial resurfacing

A careful application of plasma energy over the whole of the face will help to smooth out fine lines, resurface the skin, brighten the complexion and reduce pigmentation problems.

Eye Lifts

The skin around the upper and lower eyelids can begin to droop and sag with age. Precision application of plasma energy helps to reactivate the fibroblasts and boost new collagen production in this area, for a smoother appearance.

Jaw augmentation

The skin around the jawline can become soft and lose definition over time. Plasma Pen treatment helps to kick start the collagen production process and create a firmer look around the jaw.

Healing & Aftercare Process

Very few of our clients experience any complications after a Plasma Pen treatment. Our treatments deliver compressed downtimes, quicker recovery and incredible results. During the healing process, it is important to remember not to pick or scratch at the Plasma crusts. We recommend using topical aloe vera up to three times per day to provide relief from itching, whilst also speeding up the healing process

During the healing process, we recommend you do not use plasters, dressing, makeup, skin creams or other beauty products. Leaving the skin able to breathe is the best wya to enable the skin to heal; so you can look your best! Following Plasma Pen treatments, should take Vitamin C to give your immune system the boost you need to heal quickly. You should also use SPF 50 sunscreen for at least 12 weeks, and avoid sunbeds and sunbathing whilst the skin is healing.

Optimal Results

Following Plasma Pen treatment, the treated area is visibly smoother, the skin is plump and rejuvenated. Any acne scarring is smoothed and more polished looking. Fine lines and deeper lines are ironed out.

FAQ #01 - Why are fibroblast cells important?

Fibroblasts are of crucial importance to tissue repair. Our dermis consists of a network of Type I Collagen fibres, Elastin fibres and Hyaluronic Acid, all of which are secreted by fibroblasts. Together they form the Extracellular Matrix (ECM) - a vital part of our skin’s structure.

FAQ #02 - What is the function of fibroblasts in wound healing?

Fibroblasts deposit Type 3 Collagen at the site of the superficial trauma caused by the Plasma Pen treatment. This allows the skin to start the healing process. These fibroblasts produce a new Extra Celluar Matrix (ECM) and this developing ECM consists of Type 3 Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and Elastin. Over the next 12 weeks, this Type 3 Collagen is replaced by Type 1 collagen, as the wound fully closes, unveiling fresher and more youthful looking skin.

FAQ #03 - Why is Plasma Pen the best for fibroblasting treatments?

Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International delivers the safest, highest quality plasma device for fibroblasting treatments. Our non-invasive, soft-surgical treatment method stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to significantly tighten, repair and eliminate wrinkles.
