Plasma pen

Does anyone know how reliable the results are from this procedure? Do plastic surgeon’s offices ever offer this type of server? What should I look for in my search for a good technician who gets good results? What questions should I ask?

I had one plasma pen treatment on my eyelids and did not see a difference after 4 months. I'm hearing it may take 3 to 6 treatments. If you are looking to improve your neck, I doubt you will see much improvement.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Minimally invasive procedures offer limited results, and it is the surgeon who must supply you with the needed information so that you can decide which treatment is best to help you attain your goals. The looser the skin of the neck, the greater chance a formal surgical procedure is needed. See a series of ASPS plastic surgeons in consultation to discuss.
