Reduce lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity on multiple areas of your face and body with Plasma Pen treatments in Baton Rouge at Weiler Plastic Surgery. This skin rejuvenation device uses plasma energy to stimulate collagen remodeling within the skin for a fresher, tighter, and more lifted appearance. It’s highly versatile and offers long-lasting results, often delaying or even preventing the need for surgical anti-aging procedures.
What Is the Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen—we use the Plasma Concepts Pen—is a hand-held device that activates the fibroblast cells in your skin responsible for collagen production. By creating tiny injuries in your skin’s surface, the device triggers these fibroblasts to synthesize new collagen as a healing response. This process is called fibroblasting, and it leads to healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
The treatment works similarly to microneedling and fractional laser treatments. Instead of using lasers or needles to puncture the skin, though, the Plasma Pen uses plasma energy created by ionizing nitrogen and oxygen in the air. This energy heats the skin to create microinjuries, causing fibroblasts to spring into regenerative action.

What Does the Plasma Pen Treat?
The Plasma Pen effectively treats laxity, wrinkles, lines, and uneven texture on multiples areas of the body, including:
- Upper and lower eyelids
More severe laxity may be better treated with ThermiTight® for the body.
What Happens During a Plasma Pen Treatment?
Your provider will start by discussing your concerns to make sure you’re a strong candidate for the procedure. Keep in mind the Plasma Pen is not recommended for darker skin tones as it can cause pigmentation issues in the treated areas.
If you are a candidate, your provider will begin by applying a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment. He or she will then use the device to deliver short flashes of energy across the targeted area, creating a matrix of tiny, dark dots. Treatment times can range between about 10 and 45 minutes. Before you leave, your provider will apply a topical aftercare cream to aid in the healing process.

What Is Plasma Pen Recovery Like?
For the first 2 to 3 days, you may experience some redness and swelling. You’ll notice a dark matrix of tiny dots created by the plasma flashes. These dots will scab and flake off, typically in about 5 to 7 days, leaving behind fresher, younger-looking tissues. Your provider will give you instructions for looking after your skin as it heals.
You’ll likely notice gradual improvements for the next several weeks as new collagen production takes place. Most people only need 1 or 2 sessions to achieve their best results.
How Much Do Plasma Pen Treatments Cost?
