It’s not just sun damage and environmental toxins that take a toll on our skin as we get older. The collagen fiber network, where our skin gets its supple firmness, loses fibers over time, and those remaining stretch and weaken. When this happens, skin becomes lax and wrinkles develop. At The Refinery Medspa & Wellness, we can rebuild your collagen network to diminish wrinkles, repair skin scarred by acne, and refine skin irregularities to a smooth, youthful complexion.
How Does the Plasma Pen Work?
Plasma therapy is the latest in cutting-edge research to revive the collagen fiber network and repair skin beginning to show the signs of age. It works by targeting fibroblasts in the dermis, which are responsible for producing collagen fibers. The Plasma Pen never actually touches your skin as it discharges a high-frequency electric current. This current creates tiny controlled injuries to the skin through thermal disruption for the purpose of breaking down damaged or weakened collagen fibers. This is your skin’s signal to stimulate the fibroblasts to regenerate stronger, more supportive collagen fibers. The thermal heat also reacts with other cells in your skin, causing them to contract and tighten for an overall radiant, youthful glow.
Plasma Pen fibroblast therapy can rebuild the skin’s most important support structures and renew cells to treat:
- Lines and wrinkles, including those around sensitive areas such as the mouth and eyes
- Skin laxity
- Acne scars
- Photoaging damage such as age spots
- Seborrheic keratosis, which presents as dark, scaly skin growths
- Stretch marks
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your skin has become laxer with time, and you’re fighting a losing battle with lines and wrinkles, or if you’ve had acne scarring or other skin texture irregularities, Plasma Pen fibroblast therapy could be the treatment to correct your concerns. Patients on certain medications, like Accutane or antibiotics, or with certain medical conditions should speak to a Refinery skin specialist during a comprehensive consultation to determine if Plasma Pen therapy is safe for you.

What’s the Procedure Like? Take?
Your Plasma Pen therapy begins with a thorough cleansing and the application of topical numbing cream to ensure maximum comfort. Once your skin is prepped, your Refinery specialist will move the Plasma Pen above your skin in a controlled sweeping gesture. The plasma energy disburses into your skin to interact with the fibroblasts and other skin cells. Pinpoint brown marks will appear with each controlled micro-injury, so you know the treatment is working. The treatment concludes with cooling gel to soothe and minimize any tingling or tender sensations from the plasma energy.
What Results Can I Expect?
While Plasma Pen fibroblast therapy does not prevent future aging from occurring, its effects on existing wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and skin laxity are long-lasting, and patients see an immediate improvement to skin’s tone and texture. As collagen rebuilds, your skin’s laxity should continue to improve. Additional treatments create accumulated improvement and are typically scheduled 8 weeks apart. Fibroblasts sustain increased collagen production for up to 1 year. These fresh collagen fibers hold their support of the skin for even longer, so you can reverse the age of your skin for years to come with Plasma Pen fibroblast therapy.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is some social downtime to consider until the pinpoint brown spots fall off in the coming week, exposing a new, healthy layer of skin. The closer the treatment is to the eyes, the higher the likelihood of mild swelling. Thorough aftercare instructions are provided to make recovery easier.
