Plasma Pen

What is Plasma Pen?

Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International is the world’s most advanced non-invasive skin rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles and aging skin. The Plasma Pen is an FDA registered and CE approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy, a technique used to stimulate production of collagen in the skin.

Permanent Effects technicians are Plasma Pen trained and certified through Louise Walsh International.

The Plasma Pen is a non-surgical procedure targeting the effects of aging by stimulating fibroblast cells improving elasticity, sagging and wrinkles traditionally treated with lasers or plastic surgery.

Tighter, smoother skin can be achieved without surgery and with minimal down time and fast recovery.

Fibroblasting produces excellent results for any area of the body, particularly the face and neck regions. A thorough consultation will be completed prior to treatment to discuss treatment areas, contraindications, Plasma Pen aftercare instructions, risks, and skin types that can be safely treated.

Is the Plasma Pen treatment painful?

Topical numbing agents are used on the skin during treatment. Most clients report minimal discomfort and often describe the treatment as merely tingly. Some areas of the face or body may be more sensitive than others.

How long will it take to see results?

Typically, results such as tightening and smoothing of wrinkles will be seen immediately, followed by cumulative improvements over the next three months as collagen strengthens. Although results are often dramatic from day one and your treated area may look healed from the outside, it takes 8-12 weeks for the full effects of your treatment to be seen.

In some cases, more than one session is required to achieve the desired results.

How long do Plasma Pen results last?

Each individual’s results can vary, and your technician will discuss your home care and lifestyle which can affect your results. Plasma Pen delivers exceptional results that can last up to 3 years or as natural aging occurs.

What down time can I expect after my Plasma Pen treatment?
You should expect:

  • Redness, swelling and scabbing in the treatment areas.
  • An average of 8 days healing on the face and neck areas.
  • An average of 10 to 14 days healing on the body, depending on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment.
  • Skin discomfort on treated area, much like a sunburn, for the first few days.
  • Swelling, usually beginning the day following your treatment and peaking around day 3.
  • Darkening of carbon crusts after day 3.
  • Natural flaking of carbon crusts starting around days 6 or 7 which can take as long as two weeks to completely flake away.

Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the after care protocol.


  • Sweating
  • Antihistamine or anti-inflammatory medication
  • Makeup or topical skin care, other than provided aftercare product
