Skin resurfacing treatments with the Plasma IQ Pen can provide you with remarkable benefits similar to those of CO2 laser treatments but with minimal downtime. At Springs Aesthetics, we proudly offer the innovative Plasma IQ Pen to the residents of Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock, and surrounding areas in Colorado.

What is the Plasma IQ Pen?

The Plasma IQ Pen is an advanced cosmetic device used for non-surgical skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. It utilizes plasma energy, which is created through ionization of gas particles in the air, to address various skin concerns. The pen-like device generates controlled plasma arcs that interact with the skin’s surface, creating targeted micro-injuries and stimulating the skin’s natural healing response.

The Plasma IQ Pen can be used for a range of cosmetic treatments, including:

  • Skin tightening
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Scar revision
  • Destruction of skin lesions
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Eyelid lifting

How Much Do Plasma IQ Pen Treatments Cost?

When you meet with Dr. Burroughs for a Plasma IQ Pen consultation, he will recommend the best approach and develop a treatment plan. The cost of your skin resurfacing will be based upon that treatment plan. Most often a series of treatments provides the best and longest lasting results. For your convenience, Springs Aesthetics offers financing options through CareCredit® and Alphaeon®, and you can apply before you meet with Dr. Burroughs.

Am I A Candidate for the Plasma IQ Pen?

The Plasma IQ Pen is generally suitable for individuals who are looking for non-surgical skin rejuvenation and have specific concerns that can be addressed by the treatment. If you’re interested in non-surgical skin tightening, skin resurfacing or skin rejuvenation, you may be a good candidate for Plasma IQ Pen treatments. However, the best way to determine whether you’re a candidate for the Plasma IQ Pen is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Burroughs.

What is the Plasma IQ Pen Treatment Like?

On the day of your Plasma IQ Pen treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize any potential discomfort. Then we will use the Plasma IQ Pen, which is a handheld device, to deliver controlled plasma energy to the targeted areas of your skin. The pen creates small, precise plasma arcs that interact with the skin’s surface, creating micro-injuries. The Plasma IQ Pen will be moved across the treatment area to produce the desired outcome. You may feel a sensation of heat or warmth during the procedure, but it should be well-tolerated thanks to the topical anesthetic.

What is Recovery Like After Plasma IQ Pen Treatments?

Recovery after Plasma IQ Pen treatments varies depending on the intensity of treatment. Immediately after the procedure, you may experience redness, swelling, and sunburn-like sensation, which typically subside within a few hours to days. The treated areas may develop crusts or scabs as part of the healing process, which should not be picked at. Downtime can range from minimal to a few days to a week, depending on the treatment intensity. Following post-treatment care instructions is essential, and you should avoid direct sunlight and harsh skincare products.

What Results Can I Expect from the Plasma IQ Pen?

Results from Plasma IQ Pen treatments can typically be noticed as the skin heals and regenerates. Initial improvements in skin texture and tightness may be visible shortly after the procedure, with further enhancements developing over time as collagen production is stimulated. While some patients may achieve great results after one treatment session, we may recommend multiple treatment sessions to others depending on their treatment goals.
