With advances in aesthetic technology, surgery is no longer your only option for getting rid of the excess skin around your eyes or on your neck.

The Plasma Elite Plasma Pen is an advanced nonsurgical aesthetic tool that uses plasma technology to tighten and revitalize your skin. The innovative device creates a tiny plasma flash by ionizing the gases near the surface of your skin. The energy causes your skin to contract, or tighten, and creates a micro-injury that stimulates collagen production.
Collagen is a structural protein found in the dermal layer of your skin and is responsible for your skin’s strength and elasticity. Production of collagen decreases as you get older and is one of the factors that contributes to your saggy, crepey, wrinkled skin.
Dr. Goodnight uses the Plasma Elite Plasma Pen as a nonsurgical treatment option to address many beauty concerns. Some of the most common treatments include
Dr. Goodnight may also suggest using the Plasma Elite Plasma Pen to tighten the skin around your knees and arms.
The specifics of your Plasma Elite Plasma Pen session may depend on your personal beauty goals. Dr. Goodnight customizes your treatment plan and reviews the details with you during your consultation, including how to prepare, what to expect during your treatment, and what happens after.
Your treatment plan also includes the number of sessions you need to reach your beauty goals. Though some patients may only need one Plasma Elite Plasma Pen treatment to get results, most patients get optimal results after two to three sessions.
You may experience redness, swelling, and scabbing after your Plasma Elite Plasma Pen treatment, and it may take up to 10 days for your skin to fully recover. However, you don’t need to make any changes to your usual activities following your aesthetic treatment, and downtime isn’t necessary.
But Dr. Goodnight recommends you stay out of the sun and may suggest you refrain from using makeup during the healing process, which may mean “social” downtime for some. He also provides detailed aftercare instructions to support the healing process and ensure you get the best possible results.
