About Skin Rejuvenation
To help refresh the skin and reduce the signs of aging, our team at JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL proudly offers Plasma Pen skin rejuvenation treatments. This popular and minimally invasive treatment can tighten and lift the skin without the need for surgery. Using advanced plasma technology to treat wrinkles or fine lines, we perform a technique known as "fibroblasting," which provides long-lasting and natural-looking results. Fibroblasting targets the fibroblast cells underneath the skin. These essential cells help with healing and maintaining tight and firm skin.
Plasma is often known as the fourth state of matter, and it is composed of ionized particles that move rapidly and freely. Plasma gas can do things that other types of gases cannot do. For cosmetic treatments, it safely and effectively heats the complexion to rejuvenate the skin. The Plasma Pen utilizes electrostatic technology to develop simulated nitrogen plasma. When we gently glide the device over the treatment area, it will emit the energy, which heats and resurfaces the skin. Additionally, an essential part of tightening the skin is ensuring the energy targets the deeper layers of the dermis. We encourage you to call us and schedule an appointment for additional information about skin rejuvenation treatments.
Skin Rejuvenation Reviews
"Jem Medspa is an amazing place. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and no matter who you talk to, they are able to help and answer detailed questions on procedures. They make you feel so comfortable and welcome. I can't say enough about how awesome Donna is. Donna did my plasma pen treatment (upper and lower lids), and only about week out I am already thrilled at the results I am seeing. I totally trust in Donna and know that she has the highest level of training, which is so critical with the more complicated procedures using Plasma Pen, and for trickier areas for filler, such as under eye area or near temples. She is also extremely precise with Botox injections and placement. Finally, she is super knowledgeable on all the different and available procedures, and is happy to work with you no matter what your budget is, to find something that will fit."- D.P. / Google / Oct 02, 2020

As we grow older, our skin starts to become less firm because collagen production decreases. This impacts how the complexion looks and feels. If you experience fine lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin, skin rejuvenation could help treat these issues. Skin rejuvenation can tighten, refresh, and brighten the skin without the recovery time and expense of surgery. This treatment works well for patients who want to reduce the appearance of:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Crow’s feet
- Lines on the neck
- Smile lines
Skin rejuvenation treatments can help patients achieve firmer skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles or other skin blemishes. At the beginning of your treatment, we will start by cleaning your skin to remove any oils or lotions. If needed, we can apply a numbing cream to the skin, but generally, the discomfort is only mild or moderate. During your procedure, the Plasma Pen precisely targets the treatment area and the energy reaches between 0.2mm and 0.4mm beneath the surface of the skin. For enhanced results, skin rejuvenation impacts both the epidermal and dermal tissue, which leads to dramatic transformation. Compared to other treatments that leave the skin shiny or tight, the Plasma Pen provides natural-looking results, which helps the skin look softer, firmer, and younger.
What to Expect
After your plasma treatment, you should see immediate results. You will also experience some mild side effects, including inflammation, peeling, and skin crust. Typically, the symptoms last about five days, and they should subside on their own. To ensure your treatment area heals properly, patients should avoid using any type of makeup or products. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions on how to properly care for your skin. Patients may also receive a special serum or gel to help with the healing.

skin Rejuvenation FAQ
Do Plasma Pen skin rejuvenation treatments hurt?
Because we numb the treatment area before we begin, most patients don't find the procedure painful. Some discomfort may be experienced, but for most, it is well tolerated. At JEM Medspa, we prioritize your comfort during every procedure to help ensure your experience is always a positive one.
How long does a Plasma Pen fibroblasting session last?
The length of your treatment session will depend on the size and area treated, your skin health, and your aesthetic goals. Most sessions last about an hour or longer for multiple or larger treatment areas.
How soon do you see results with Plasma Pen treatments?
After their skin heals, most patients will experience improving results over the following weeks. Typically, optimal results are reached around 6 – 8 months. Some patients may be recommended for a second treatment to maximize results.
How long is recovery after a Plasma Pen treatment?
It usually takes about 5 – 7 days for the treatment areas to fully heal. We will give you aftercare instructions to help your skin heal faster.
How long do the results of a skin rejuvenation treatment last?
For most patients, the results can last 2 – 5 years. Eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water, and living a healthier lifestyle can help to preserve your skin rejuvenation results.
