The Plasma Pen is well known worldwide for the way it rejuvenates the skin. This cutting-edge treatment repairs the skin, reverses aging, and mitigates the effects of future aging without actually touching the skin! At Launa Stone, RN, in Calabasas, CA, we offer this and many other treatments to help you achieve your appearance goals.
What Does the Plasma Pen Do?
This Pen is a new and innovative treatment that uses plasma energy to resurface the skin. It is perfect for those who want to get rid of wrinkles, sun damage, or any other signs of aging. The treatment is quick and easy, and the results are impressive.
This Pen works by creating tiny micro-plasma columns that penetrate into the skin. These columns help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy skin. The treatment is safe and comfortable, and there is no downtime required. The Plasma Pen is perfect for anyone who wants to look younger and more refreshed.
This treatment is FDA-approved to treat fibroblasts: cells that are located in the layer of skin right below the surface. By targeting these cells, the treatment inspires your skin to produce more collagen and elastin. These fibroblasts are crucial to a youthful look because they are what gives our skin its firm appearance.
What Areas Can Be Treated?

What Is Treatment Like?
This treatment is quick and easy. It takes about 15 minutes to complete, and there is no downtime required. The treatment is comfortable and safe, and you will see immediate results. The specifics will vary depending on your individual needs, but for most people, the process begins with a quick skin cleansing. Then, we apply topical numbing cream, which ensures you are comfortable throughout the entire treatment. It takes around 30 minutes for this cream to take effect.
Once you’re perfectly comfortable, we begin treatment in your designated area or areas. When the treatment is finished, we apply a cooling gel, but you shouldn’t feel any discomfort: the cooling gel is just a precaution to make doubly sure you are comfortable. Always seek treatment from providers who are qualified to use the Pen. Some treatment providers use knock-off imitations or employ staff who are not skilled in administering this treatment. The results of these cost-cutting, short-cut methods can be anything from greatly increased treatment times to even burns. The treatment may not be effective at all.
At our offices, we use the Plasma Pen because it’s simply the best out there. The results are guaranteed, and all our administrators are skilled in using the pen to get you just the results you’re looking for. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us anything during your consultation!

What Causes Skin Changes?
Aging, sun exposure, and environmental factors can all cause skin changes. The Pen is a safe and effective treatment for reducing the signs of aging. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy skin.
The skin undergoes a number of changes as you age. The production of collagen and elastin slows down, leading to a loss of elasticity and firmness. The skin can also become dry and thin. This treatment can help to reverse these effects and restore youthful, healthy skin.
Sun exposure can cause a number of changes in the skin, including wrinkles, sun spots, and discoloration. The sun’s rays generate UV radiation, which causes damage to skin cells as they attempt to protect themselves. Over time, your skin becomes less and less able to rejuvenate after bouts of sun exposure.
Environmental factors such as pollution and smoke can cause skin changes. Pollution and smoking both reduce important proteins in your skin, work against healthy skin hydration, and slow down your skin’s natural healing processes. This treatment can help to reduce the signs of environmental damage and restore a healthy appearance.
What Will Happen During the Consultation?
We will assess your skin and discuss your goals for treatment. We will also talk about any medications or allergies you may have. We will make sure that the Plasma Pen is the right treatment for you, so we’ll also consider your medical history and any medications you are taking. In some cases, it’s necessary to pause certain medications for a time until after treatments. If you’re not sure about pausing a treatment, we can help you understand what you need to ask your doctor about.
What Areas Cannot Be Treated with the Plasma Pen?
This treatment cannot be used to treat the eyes, lips, or inside the nose and mouth. If you’re not sure about where you can use this treatment, be sure to ask us during your consultation.
How to Protect the Skin After Treatment
You will want to protect the skin after treatment with the Plasma Pen. You can do this by using a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. You should also avoid sun exposure and use a hat and sunglasses when outdoors.
Keeping Your Skin Young and Healthy
There are a number of things you can do to keep your skin young and healthy. You should avoid sun exposure, use a sunscreen, and wear a hat and sunglasses when outdoors. You should also avoid smoking and exposure to pollution. You can also use a moisturizer and an anti-aging serum to help keep your skin looking its best.
How Diet Affects the Skin
What you eat can also affect the health and appearance of your skin. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables can help to keep your skin looking its best. You should also drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and avoid too much alcohol.
Lifestyle Choices and Your Skin
Your lifestyle choices can also affect the health and appearance of your skin. Exercising regularly and getting enough sleep can help to keep your skin looking its best. You should also avoid stress, which can have a negative effect on the skin. Smoking is a real skin-killing activity, so now is a great time to stop.
