When Should You Not Use PlasmaPen? What You Should Know

Plasma-Fibroblast Skin Tightening is a non-surgical procedure that aims to induce collagen production in the skin, thereby improving the appearance of affected skin. Most types of skin ageing and wrinkles result from the loss of collagen, the protein that gives skin strength, elasticity, and firmness.

It is good to know that PlasmaPen treatment can be used to treat different parts of the body. That is because it divides the treatment area into smaller areas, making it easier to replicate the treatment of the larger area.

Like any other treatment, however, not everyone can use PlasmaPen, especially when with a few conditions. If you find yourself in these categories, perhaps you may look for other solutions for your skin.

You Have Severe Skin Irritation or Condition

People with severe skin conditions can’t use the device, even with small areas of broken skin. Thus, your skin condition must be maintained and not the result of recent trauma, infection, or injury.

If you have active acne or severe acne, PlasmaPen treatments should be avoided, mainly if erythema, papule, pustule, and nodule components are present.

If you have open lesions or a wound that is not completely healed, it may not be a good idea to use PlasmaPen. It would be best to let your wound heal properly first. If you have moles and birthmarks, erythema, and discolouration, you should discuss this with your doctor before using PlasmaPen.

You Are Taking Certain Medications

You should consider not using PlasmaPen if you are taking certain medications. Many meds can have adverse effects when used with this treatment. 

Included in this category is if you have a history of being treated with blood-thinning medication, or if you have acne medications, severe diabetes, have an auto-immune disorder, or undergoing chemotherapy sessions.

It’s best to discuss which meds you’re taking with the professionals before you pursue the treatment.

You Are Pregnant

This treatment is not suggested for women who are pregnant. It is because there is not enough information about the effects of PlasmaPen treatment on the unborn baby.

You Are Breastfeeding

It is not suggested to use the device if you are breastfeeding. Breastfeeding mothers have a higher risk of experiencing skin irritation than non-lactating women.

You Bruise or Bleed Easily

If you have a history of severe bruising or bleeding problems, such as bleeding disorders or haemophilia, you should avoid this treatment.

You Have Cataracts

Even though many users who have used PlasmaPen report no problems, this treatment should be avoided, especially if you have a cataract. It is because there is no guarantee that it will not cause problems. Also, electromagnetic energy can affect the eye’s lens and worsen your cataract.

You Need to Wear Contact Lenses After the Treatment

If you use contact lenses, you must not wear them within 72 hours after the treatment. Doing so can cause the blood vessels to dilate. That is important, especially if you have treatment close to the eyes.


With the various treatments to combat skin dullness, Fibroblast Skin Tightening or the use of a PlasmaPen is considered an excellent option to help you achieve your desired skin. Considering the safety and effectiveness of this treatment, it is highly recommended. However, make sure that you avoid it if you have any of the mentioned conditions. It is always best to seek a medical opinion before undergoing any treatments.
