How We Create Plasma
In simple terms; our Plasma Pen handpiece converts electrical energy into an electrostatic energy to create artificial nitrogen plasma. Inside our Plasma Pen device, an electrical discharge is made by introducing voltage between two electrodes separated by a “dielectric barrier”. During the plasma treatment, the charge collects on the surface of the barrier; a gaseous flash/arc of ionized plasma gas is safely released from about 1mm above the skin. Ultimately, our device is heating and subjecting neutral atmospheric gases (in our case oxygen and nitrogen) to electromagnetism to create an electrically conductive cloud of ionized gas. We transmit that energized plasma in its gaseous form (nitrogen plasma), in a non-contact way, to the skin’s surface from above. We can sustain our nitrogen plasma discharge for as long as we like thanks both to our continuous AC power source and our devices fingertip, on-demand control. Multiple failsafes within the device ensure that if we touch the skin or are too far away from it then the creation and delivery of plasma immediately ceases.
What Does Our Device Actually Do?
The nitrogen plasma energy we create through Plasma Pen transfers rapidly to the skin’s epidermal layer whilst, simultaneously, heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. In doing so, we intentionally create a dual zone of micro-trauma which comprises a superficial zone of outer thermal micro-damage to the epidermis and then, simultaneously, a deeper zone of inner thermal modification within the dermis – especially to the fibroblasts. That’s why we often call the treatment “fibroblasting”.
What is Lamprobe?
As the greater mass of the American population ages, many minor skin abnormalities appear in the aging skin that may affect the aging baby boomers both physically and psychologically. The declining ozone layer has led to a dramatic increase in various skin disorders including sun damaged skin that may act as precursors to skin cancer. Treatment for these skin conditions is being sought after in today’s society because this population, besides wanting to look younger and more attractive as long as possible, are also very interested in preventative health care.
The skin changes that occur with aging, various skin abnormalities or lesions proliferate in certain ethnic populations. Minor skin conditions such as age spots, telangiestasia or skin tags are more commonly found in certain ethnic groups. For example, fibromas appear more frequently among the black population and telangiestasia (a.k.a. broken capillaries) are more visible on the cheek and nose of Caucasian skin. With age, multiple skin tags proliferate mainly on the neck, breasts and axillae, and in the skin folds in the obese. Oily skins suffer from asphyxiated pores with sebaceous secretions sometimes hardening on the skin’s surface, and no amount of manual extraction can release the suppressed sebum. Milias (a.k.a. whiteheads) are found on any skin type but occur more frequently in oily skins or very dry skins due to poor exfoliation. Among dark-skinned individuals (Fitzpatrick Skin Types III-VI) hyperpigmentation is a major source of concerns especially in aging.
Lamprobe helps remove these minor skin abnormalities.
Treatment probe will heat up to 107 degrees Fahrenheit to provide topical heating that increases local blood flow. The increased blood flow provides better oxygenation and stimulates for collagen and elastin production thus promoting skin cell regeneration at the epidermal and dermal level. The red LED light and the 3 polar HF technologies promote the production of new skin cells, collagen fibers and elastin, by doing that it rejuvenates your skin. The red light is also known to reduce melanin buildup in the skin thus reducing the appearance of age spots and dark spots due to hyperpigmentation.

The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is an advanced medical-grade automated device. Composed of medical grade stainless steel, the MicroPen® Elite is the first cordless fractional automated micro-needling device for treating various dermatologic indications and can be used on the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
The automated micro-needling pen is a safe alternative to common skin resurfacing tools, such as lasers and dermal rollers. The MicroPen® Elite, which won THE Aesthetic Industry Award for Best Micro-Needling Device, is affordable, effective, requires minimal down time and provides natural-looking results.
What is the Eclipse MicroPen® and Automated Micro-Needling?
Automated micro-needling is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s overall appearance. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Look for an Eclipse MicroPen® professional in your area now.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPen® can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the procedure done?
A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of solution, such as medical-grade saline solution, to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
What does it feel like?
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating Eclipse MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Rejuvenation System™, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the post-care process.
When will I see results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.
How many treatments are needed?
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
