Those vertical lines reaching from lip to nose are often referred to as the “Barcode” because of their uncanny resemblance in pattern. They are inevitable for some due to genetics, environmental factors or more commonly known for smoking lines.
Although minor, they can age a face dramatically. Plasma Pen is the ideal treatment for this area, smoothing out and eventually diminishing most unwanted lines over the lip. Two to three treatments may be required ,six to eight weeks apart, depending on the individual.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Plasma Pen works by converting electrical energy into electrostatic energy which is transmitted to the probe by impulse. Held about 1mm from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed to produce an arc of plasma which discharges onto the epidermis (the superficial layers of your skin). There is an immediate contraction of the skin tissue and also thermal action within the dermis (the deeper layers of your skin).
This stimulates collagen production for the next few months, and also activates and releases important proteins within the skin for repair. The controlled trauma that is caused to the skin results in the skin drying into tiny carbon crusts, which fall off within a few days resulting in beautiful and rejuvenated skin.
