The Science Behind Plasma Pen Technology

by Plasma Pen UKAug 26,2022Plasma Pen™ Advice

Plasma Pen treatments continue to grow in popularity across the world as thousands of doctors, nurses, clinicians, and dermatologists are using our device to reduce the signs of aging.  

But how does it actually work? 

Well, it’s time to get your lab coat on and join us for a science lesson.  

The Science Behind Plasma Pen 

Plasma Pens work by creating plasma energy, otherwise known as the ‘fourth state of matter’. 

Plasma is formed through the ionization of atmospheric gasses and creates a small, controlled micro-trauma. 

This ‘trauma’ creates micro-injuries throughout lower levels of the skin, that forces the dermis to produce healthy new collagen and elastin to help keep the skin plump and smooth. 

Our Plasma Pen devices do all of this without touching the skin with the pen. 

It sounds like magic, doesn’t it? Let’s take a look at how the treatment is performed.  

What are Plasma Pen Treatments? 

Plasma treatments are completely non-surgical, non-invasive procedures which are used to tighten skin, improve skin laxity, and offer improvements in facial contour.  

Plasma Pen offers medical, stainless steel, sterilised probes such as the Ultra-fine 0.2mm, 0.3mm and 0.4mm nano-probes, enabling greater precision and accuracy than any other device when sublimating skin tissue. 

These probes help to underpin rapid recovery via the shortest downtime and the most optimal clinical results on the market. 

Treatments with Plasma Pen devices include:  

  • Face, Neck & Eye Lift 
  • Scar Revision 
  • Large Body Areas 
  • Skin Tag Removal 
  • Pigmentation Correction 
  • Advanced Resurfacing and Rejuvenation 
  • And much more! 

How Do Plasma Pen Procedures Work? 

Plasma Pen procedures are typically quick, simple and pain-free. The bulk of time spent during treatment is to first ensure safety, as the professional Plasma Pen practitioner will fully desensitise the intended area before beginning.  

They will then use a very distinct ‘dotting’ technique which creates the right amount microinjuries to adequately induce skin-tightening in the target area, with the probes transferring the plasma energy to the skin from a couple of millimetres away from the surface of the skin. 

Impressively, in the name of safety, our Plasma Pen devices will automatically cut out if the surface of the skin is touched.  

This brings us to an important issue regarding plasma pen treatments, which is copycats using potentially dangerous devices.  

Plasma Pen Treatment Near Me: How Do I Know It Will Be Safe?  

If you are somebody looking for a plasma treatment close to your location, or perhaps you are a medical or cosmetic professional looking to purchase a pen, but you aren’t sure which is the safest on the market, here’s a quick guide to help you out.  

A good place to start is to check where the plasma pen has been manufactured. If it’s German-made, then it is likely a reliable device which will generate a true plasma current.  

However, if the device is made in China, it may be a replica device, sold cheaper but in fact very dangerous to use.  

Most of the ‘cheaper’ device are in fact electrical, and not capable of generating plasma energy, which can be incredibly harmful to a client’s skin. 

The reason for this is other devices often use large, reusable probes or acupuncture needles with no split dielectric barrier (tesla coil). Doing this makes electron exchange impossible for plasma to be created, hence why other devices are merely electrically burning or cauterising the skin. 


To end the lesson, let’s recap what we’ve learned: 

  1. Plasma Pens work by creating plasma energy 
  1. Plasma Pen treatments are non-surgical and do not need to touch the skin to work 
  1. Plasma Pen treatments tighten skin, improve skin density and rejuvenate multiple layers of the skin 
  1. Plasma Pen treats eyes, removes skin tags, reduces scarring, corrects pigmentation and resurfaces the skin 
  1. Only buy German-made Plasma Pens, not cheap rip offs
