What is Plasma Pen?
Plasmage Plasma Pen is a TGA approved skin tightening treatment that uses fractional plasma energy to remove excess skin tissue. Fractional Plasma ensures patient safety via a controlled plasma arc that heats skin tissue quickly, causing it to evaporate rather than burn.
The Plasmage device can target a large range of skin conditions across various regions of the face and body. Read on to learn why plasma pen treatments are a popular option for skin tightening.
The treatment effectively lifts and tightens excess or wrinkled skin, removing the need to undergo surgical procedures and avoiding scars. This procedure not only reduces lines and wrinkles but also targets puffiness, sagging skin, acne, rosacea, scarring, skin tags and moles.
From fine lines to sun damage, stretch marks and more, revitalise your skin with help from ICCM.

How is the Plasma Pen procedure done?
The Plasma Lift is a very simple treatment that involves the following steps:

- The plasma arc creates a series of small dots on the skin
- This triggers an immediate tightening, lifting and contouring of the area
- The skin is immediately renewed to reveal fast results
How many treatments do I need?
Your initial consultation with the experts at ICCM will provide a clearer indication of how many treatments you may require. In most cases, only one or two treatments are needed; however, skin laxity and your biological response to the therapy may deem more sessions necessary.
How long will the treatment last?
The Plasma Lift and removal of excess skin can be very quick, often only requiring around 30 - 40 minutes, making this a popular non-invasive alternative to other skin treatments.
What’s the recovery time for the Plasma Pen procedure?
Roughly seven days of downtime after the treatment may be required to see any swelling in the treated area subside. However, any expected swelling and redness will be at a minimum, and you should have no issue returning to your normal routine straight away.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have more questions about this procedure? Our helpful FAQ section may provide the answers:
Unlike CO2 lasers, the Plasma Pen never touches your skin, meaning less chance of infection. The downtime is also generally quicker than CO2 lasers, which can take up to two weeks before applying makeup is allowed. With a Plasma Pen, there is roughly half that amount of healing time.
A topical or local anaesthetic can be applied before treatment to numb the skin, reducing any discomfort.
The healing process will take roughly seven days for any swelling in the treated area to subside. Swelling and redness is expected and completely normal and should not impact your normal routine.
The following prospective patients may not be suited to this procedure:
- Patients with a dark complexion, due to a higher risk of hyperpigmentation
- Those with active skin diseases (dermatitis, rosacea flares, etc.)
- Patients with a history of hyperpigmentation
- Anyone with a history of keloid or hypertrophic scars
- Patients with a pacemaker
- Present and active colds sore
- Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Anyone on Roaccutane
Results are instant; however, it can take up to 12 weeks for the collagen levels to mature and reveal an optimal look.
