Plasma Pen can be used to evert or reshape the lip to a more pouty, sexy look WITHOUT THE USE OF FILLERS. Plasma Pen delivers a beam of plasma, also known as ionized gas, to the skin surface. This energy creates a pinpoint of treatment that causes contraction of the surrounding skin in all directions.
When used around the mouth, the skin contraction causes a pull on the edge of the lip, called the vermillion border. This pull causes an eversion, or pout of the lip edge and a pleasing lip enhancement.
Similar to fillers, Plasma Pen requires skill and a great sense of aesthetics to create the effect that patients are looking for. The Lip Flip is done using a bit of topical anesthesia and is very well tolerated- it’s a relatively short procedure considering the awesome results. Following your Lip Flip, there will be small dots around the skin of the lip that will need to be shielded from the sun while they heal. The dots fall off by themselves, and the healed tissue may show some redness in the days following the procedure. But the results of the Lip Flip, unlike those of lip injections, are longer lasting and don’t require repeated visits to the plastic surgery office. Longer term, beautiful results mean that the Plasma Pen can be an infrequent but amazing tool providing great results.
