So, it is the 4th form of the matter. Plasma Pen converts nitrogen and water vapor, which are in the third stage of the substance (in a gaseous state), into plasma energy by giving high energy in the application area. The device produces this energy, which is used by experts to eliminate damages in soft tissues and initiate new tissue formation when the tip reaches a certain distance from the skin and directly converts the cells in the upper layer of the skin from solid form to gas form (sublimation).
How Is It Applied?
Since Plasma Pen application provides evaporation in the top layer of the skin, it does not affect the fat and nerve tissues, hair follicles, or capillaries. Also, thanks to its sublimation effect, it prevents the heat from spreading out of the point target.
Plasma Pen, which results in 5 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the width of the area, is usually applied every month, 2-3 sessions per month, although it varies from patient to patient. In some patients, it is possible to get results in a single session. Before plasma administration, patients should not have taken blood thinners, alcohol, or painkillers for at least 7 days.
Advantages of Plasma Pen Application

Edema (the first few days), small spots, and scab in the area are expected. The edema dissolving solution given by the specialist is used to resolve the edema. The crusts, which should not be covered and should not be torn off, shed within a week to 10 days, revealing the underlying epithelium.
During the recovery period, the patients should regularly clean their skin with a neutral soap with a pH level of 5.5 (Alcoholic products should not be used) and then apply the eye drops recommended by the application specialist to the crusted area.
