Pure Plasma for Brow Sagging 

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Undefined

Pure Plasma is a laser skin rejuvenation device that can help patients address such skin concerns as: mild skin sagging, scars, discoloration, uneven skin texture, and wrinkles. The emitted low-level plasma causes micro-injuries in the dermis layer of the skin, provoking a boosted healing response that resolves both superficial and deep aesthetic issues.

An influx of new collagen and elastin fibers causes the skin to revitalize itself, restoring a youthful, healthy appearance. With the skin-tightening benefits of Pure Plasma, patients can resolve one of the major signs of aging, brow sagging. Plasma energy gives patients a non-surgical option that promotes natural beauty over surgical interventions that require more recovery downtime.

What Causes Brow Sagging?

Brow sagging can severely impact one’s appearance and contribute to an overall tired, aged look. Most commonly, it is caused by a weakening of the connective tissues, skin, and frontalis muscles of the forehead- the superficial muscle that provides more elevation of the upper face. (1)Wrinkles and mild sagging around the eye area are often a result of collagen degradation since the skin is so thin and prone to sun damage and other environmental effects.

Specifically, with age, collagen begins to rearrange within the dermis in a more disorganized fashion and develop an overall thinner structure than before. Brow descent is often accompanied by wrinkling between the eyebrows (often referred to as “eleven” lines), more soft tissue buildup just under the brows, and overall misalignment of the brows in general. Sometimes, the lateral area of the brows can descend and convey a somewhat displeased expression and eliminate the brows’ natural arch. This often isn’t just a cosmetic issue. When severe enough, skin can often droop over the upper eyelids, causing a condition called pseudoptosis that can obscure one’s field of vision. Skin rejuvenation methods, including Pure Plasma, can resolve some of these related brow problems by increasing high-quality collagen and mechanically contracting these fibers to promote long-lasting skin-tightening results.

The Pure Plasma Difference

Pure plasma uses nitrogen plasma pulses to gently stimulate the fibroblast cells of the dermis, the cells that generate collagen, elastin, and other connective fibers essential for healthy skin structure. Plasma is considered the fourth state of matter, which occurs when a gas achieves a temperature between 5,000 and 10,000 Kelvin (about 8,540 to 17540 degrees Fahrenheit), but Pure Plasma harnesses cold plasma energy that is well-suited for use on soft tissues. Research into cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) has shown that it has proven capabilities in reducing microbial loads through sterilization and facilitates better wound healing as a result. (1)Our device only ablates the skin with energy between 0.5 and 4 joules and is adjustable according to patient needs and their specified treatment area. This allows for minimal damage and equips providers with more customization options.

Once the plasma reaches the surface of the treatment area, the fibroblasts respond to this controlled damage by increasing their production of connective proteins for about 6 to 8 weeks after the initial treatment session. Pure Plasma is a non-ablative skin rejuvenation device, so the epidermis remains unharmed and patients can enjoy a speedier recovery with less downtime. (2)Due to this feature, many patients will require 1 to 4 sessions, depending on the aesthetic concerns they are trying to treat.

The Benefits of Pure Plasma

Healthcare professionals who are familiar with CO2, intense pulsed light, and Erbium YAG laser should consider including the unique benefits of plasma energy in their practice. Pure Plasma offers comprehensive skin rejuvenation that can effectively reduce brow sagging and other skin-based cosmetic issues. Treatment is: 

  • Non-ablative: With the epidermis left intact, it acts as a natural dressing for the skin, allowing micro-injuries in the dermis to heal faster. Certain CO2devices, on the other hand, can completely vaporize the epidermis, requiring some patients to take weeks of downtime before they can reap the benefits.
  • Non-chromophore dependent: Low-level nitrogen plasma doesn’t target skin concerns based on pigmentation from melanin, making it completely safe for patients of all skin types. Instead, it delivers energy evenly throughout the treatment area, providing uniform results throughout.
  • Tolerable: Since it is a relatively gentle resurfacing device, patients undergoing Pure Plasma sessions only report mild discomfort. It does not require the administration of local anesthesia, even for large treatment areas; topical anesthesia cream is sufficient.
  • Minimally invasive: Patients will only have minor, temporary effects such as mild swelling and redness, but they will not experience scabbing or extensive peeling characteristics of other laser resurfacing devices. Laser technicians can modify the device to administer just the right amount of plasma energy to accomplish patients’ goals.
  • Easy storage and usage: Pure Plasma requires no assembly, and the device is ready for use immediately after unpackaging. It is preset with 5 available settings, but clinicians can adjust them as needed. The user-friendly interface is easy to understand and allows clinicians to train new technicians with confidence and simplicity.
  • Quick sessions: After topical anesthesia settles in, technicians can complete the entire treatment in 30 minutes or less, making it an ideal lunchtime procedure for many busy patients.
  • Versatile: Trained professionals can apply Pure Plasma to any part of the body that has exhibited signs of sun damage and aging. It is even safe for sensitive areas with thinner skin, such as around the eyes and mouth. In instances where patients experience uneven pigmentation in a large treatment area, Pure Plasma can deliver even results throughout the entirety of the affected skin.


Pure Plasma produces amazing results in patients of any age– those in their 30s, 40s, or 50s will benefit in a way that is unique to them. Ideally, candidates should be in good health with no conditions related to wound healing or skin composition. When it comes to brow sagging, patients who will notice the best outcomes with plasma rejuvenation will only have mild or moderate sagging.


Before a Pure Plasma treatment session, patients should be mindful of keeping their skin hydrated and protected from the sun’s UV rays. Dry skin and even mild sunburns can have a significant impact on the quality of the device’s revitalization efforts. For at least 1 month before their appointment, patients should apply daily facial sunscreen to avoid such complications. We also recommend that they avoid other treatments such as microneedling, laser treatments, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, and bleaching creams.

While changes to skin tone won’t affect the device’s efficacy, any sensitive reactions to these treatments can further damage the skin and increase the risk of scarring. Patients should also refrain from using harsh over-the-counter products such as exfoliants, retinol, or retinoids. Roughly 2 weeks before, patients should stop waxing, plucking, or using hair removal creams on the brows. The day before and the day of the treatment session, we recommend cleansing the skin of all makeup, oil, sweat, and any residue that may be present.

The Treatment Session

Before applying the Pure Plasma device to the skin, the technician should cleanse the skin and consider applying a topical numbing cream to eliminate any discomfort during the procedure. Though the numbing cream could take half an hour to an hour to settle in, the actual treatment session will only take 15 to 30 minutes in total.

Next, they will apply the lightweight handpiece directly to the patient’s skin and apply one pulse of ionized nitrogen gas (plasma) before applying it to a directly adjacent area near the brows. Within the nitrogen tank, the electrodes ionize the gas with thermal energy, then, the gas travels to the handpiece. The emitted plasma energy is cooled to a tolerable temperature, bypassing the epidermis and targeting the dermis layer instead. The technician can adjust the device preset and/or the energy level somewhere between 0.5 to 4 joules. For sensitive areas around the eyes, we recommend lower energy levels.

Recovery and Results

Depending on the patient’s skin sensitivity, they may experience some amount of swelling, redness, mild peeling, and itchiness- similar effects to a minor sunburn. We recommend avoiding the gym and other physical activities for at least 2 days to avoid irritating the skin. Patients can apply an ice pack for a few minutes at a time to reduce the symptoms without interfering with the rejuvenation process.

Over the next 6 weeks to 2 months, patients will begin to experience the effects of the increase of collagen and elastin, reducing brow ptosis and the related wrinkling around the eyes. Clinicians should make efforts to implement a treatment plan that includes more than one session. After proper treatment with Pure Plasma, some patients have reported improvements in their skin texture, laxity, and blemishes for around 1 year. Clinicians can schedule follow-up appointments to maintain the results.
