The Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International is the aesthetic industry's newest, most advanced skin tightening and skin lifting noninvasive resurfacing and regeneration treatment. With an advanced handheld plasma device, this treatment has been designed and engineered for next-generation, soft-surgery "fibroblasting" and is known for its natural-looking, long-lasting results. At SSK Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi explains to patients how the Plasma Pen features numerous advances that change the way plasma is used to rejuvenate the skin.
What is plasma and how is it used in skin rejuvenation?
Often referred to as the fourth state of matter, plasma is actually a gas made up of molecules that are ionized and charged and able to roam quickly and freely. Plasma gas is able to do things that other gases cannot. For aesthetic purposes, it can safely target and heat the skin to rejuvenate it. The Plasma Pen uses electrostatic energy to create artificial nitrogen plasma. When released from the device and held approximately 1mm above the skin, it is able to heat the skin in a non-contact manner, resurfacing it from above. In addition, it simultaneously disrupts the deeper dermal layer through thermal conduction, which is crucial for skin tightening. We invite you to learn more about this revolutionary treatment by calling SSK Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery today.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing! I love how attentive he is and gives you great advice on what you should get done or shouldn't. I've been to different surgeon offices and I always find myself booking another appointment with his office instead. The ladies at his office are another reason why I keep coming as well, such sweet and friendly ladies. I love how Every time I come they are super welcoming and I don't feel like I'm being judged! I've been to Offices before where I feel like I'm bugging the staff or when I'm asking questions they answer very annoyed. Here! They answer all your questions with concern and very kindly. Thank you Shae & Alex for being great customer service representatives & following up on my appointment reminders! I've had a hydra facial + Vivace done at his office. Which I definitely recommend, I should probably book another hydra-facial while I'm writing this review. Also, I've had my breast done elsewhere but will be contacting Dr. K once I'm ready for new boobies. I'll be referring all my clients, friends, staff, and family to Dr. Kelishadi FIVE STARS FROM ISABELLA"- I.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

"I initially was drawn to SSK because of a promotion for their hydra facial. I met Shay and Alejandra who helped me understand the benefits of hydra facials. My complimentary hydra facial at their open house promotion was awesome!! I joined the SSK Club and now treat myself to monthly hydra facials at a reduced rate. My skin is glowing! I feel taken care of at SSK, and Shay and Alejandra make sure I feel this way. I've even tried the micro needling technique offered by Dr. Kellishadi which has taken my glow to a new level. Dr. Kellishadi obviously truly cares about his patients because he's interested in what's best for ME and not just what will make his cash flow grow. He said I don't need surgery to look great at my age. I'm 55. Most plastic surgeons would jump on the opportunity to talk a 55-year-old woman into chasing a youthful look through a face lift or some other expensive surgery. He spent the time to talk with me about my life goals and what makes me feel happy and alive, and we BOTH decided that going under the knife isn't what is best for me. I choose to maintain my best look by non-invasive procedures such as hydra facials and micro needling. Dr. Kellishadi cares about my satisfaction and happiness with SSK services despite the fact that I'm the opposite of a "high ticket" client. Because of this, I'm now a loyal customer."- C.S. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2019
As we age, our skin naturally becomes thinner and collagen production diminishes, which can drastically affect how our skin looks and feels. If you are bothered by deflated skin, lines, wrinkles, and skin that has moderate sag, the Plasma Pen may be a good option for you. It is ideal for patients who want to rejuvenate, tighten, and enhance the look of their skin without undergoing an invasive procedure. Some of the best candidates for the Plasma Pen desire to correct:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds or smile lines (the folds that run from the sides of your nose down to the edge of your mouth)
- Drooping jowls
- Acne scars
- Smoker's lines (vertical wrinkles around the mouth)
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Turkey neck
- Stretch marks
- Upper and lower eyelids
The Plasma Pen offers new solutions to patients who want tighter skin and to correct wrinkles and surface irregularities in a new, progressive way. Unlike laser treatments, the interaction of the Plasma Pen's nitrogen plasma delivers predictable and fully controlled energy to the skin and is able to avoid damaging other areas that may be healthy, which can sometimes occur during an ablative laser treatment. In addition, there is no thinning of the skin, bleeding, open wounds, scabbing, or lengthy downtime. The Plasma Pen works at a precise and predictable depth of tissue injury between 0.2mm and 0.4mm nano-probes and the precise and consistent on-demand plasma delivery allows for predictable results. The Plasma Pen treats both the epidermal and dermal tissue in a dual combination effort, which leads to dramatic outcomes. The skin appears softer, younger, and natural looking, unlike some treatments that can leave the skin feeling tight, thin, shiny, or pigmented.
What to Expect
During your Plasma Pen skin rejuvenation treatment session, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin’s surface about 30 minutes prior to the treatment to help provide a numbing effect, which helps control any discomfort. The cream will be removed, and the device will be moved gently across the skin during an appointment that usually lasts about an hour. Most patients feel tightening almost instantly. Once the skin has healed, the collagen production and skin tightening continue to show visible results over the course of about six months. Results can continue to improve up to a year later.
