Frequently Asked Questions
What is Plasma Pen therapy?
It is a perfectly safe and effective way of removing skin lesions without causing trauma to the surrounding healthy tissues.
What can Plasma Pen therapy be used for?
It can be used for the removal of skin tags, moles, warts, cherry angiomas (blood spots), DPN, sebaceous cysts and milia.
What are the after effects?
The treated lesions will be immediately flattened, and a scab is left in its place, it will appear darker before falling off within 7 – 10 days.
There is minimal risk of scarring, however, some of the deeper moles may leave faint discolouration once the mole has been removed. This can last up to a few weeks.
What do I need to do afterwards?
The treated area needs to be kept clean and dry for up to one week. Therefore, activities such as swimming, going to the gym, and using steam rooms and saunas are not recommended.
Are there any risks of the Plasma Pen method?
This method is very safe. The risk of infection is minimal as there is no open skin or wound.
Will I need more than one treatment?
Very large moles and skin tags have a deep root and a second treatment after 1 month may be necessary to remove it completely.
