No blades or surgical risk. Yet, this state-of-the-art plasma technology offers the results of conventional surgery.
What is Plasma IQ™?
Plasma IQ™ is the latest advancement in aesthetics to renew and restore the skin. Also known as fibroblasting, Plasma IQ™ is a completely non-surgical skin tightening treatment that utilizes plasma microbeams to trigger the production of collagen and elastin, two essential components for healthy, firm skin.
This minimally invasive procedure uses an FDA-approved hand-held device to deliver focused controlled plasma energy to safely and effectively create microinjuries on the skin, resulting in a tightening and retraction of the skin tissues through controlled skin damage.
Plasma IQ™ is a low-risk, in-office procedure, with minimal side effects and none of the complications associated with surgical interventions. Therefore, it is an ideal solution for those who prefer the nonsurgical route for skin rejuvenation treatments.
How Plasm IQ™ works.
Step one: ionized gas particles. During an office treatment, our registered nurse will place the pen close to the skin, which causes nitrogen gas particles to react or ionize in the air creating a plasma arc similar to a spark.
Step two: skin retraction and reaction. The plasma arc causes sublimation of the epidermis (surface) of the skin, transforming solid straight into gas and leading to immediate skin tightening and retraction. This method of plasma sublimation is highly targeted, controlled, and doesn’t transfer heat to the surrounding area for faster healing. The procedure creates tiny brown crusts or scabs in the treated area that continues for about a week before flaking off. During the scabbing stage, the aftercare process is vitally important for optimal healing.
Step three: the healing response. The microinjuries sustained during treatment promote long-term smoothing, tightening, and firming results while the surrounding skin areas are not affected, thus reducing downtime and improving the natural healing process.

Am I a candidate for the Plasma IQ™ procedure?
If you’re concerned about wrinkles, dark circles, sagging or loose skin, scars, or stretch marks but prefer not to take the surgical route, Plasma IQ™ is a perfect option for you.
Those with lower eyelid laxity and hooded lids, skin lesions, stretch marks, wrinkles, and crow’s feet benefit the most from Plasma IQ™ pen. People with darker skin tones may need to have pre- and post-skin care regimens for optimal healing. Call our office to set up a consultation with one of our registered nurses to learn more about how Plasma IQ™ can renew your skin.

- Upper and lower eyelids
- Upper, mid, and lower face
- Legs and knees
What is the Plasma IQ™ procedure?
Plasma IQ™ is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed on-site at Dr. Axline’s Wellness Clinic. This non-surgical procedure is a fast and simple treatment that takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete depending on the areas being treated.
We start our procedure by cleansing the treatment area to remove any makeup, oil, and dirt to reduce possible infection. We then apply a topical numbing agent to the target areas to minimize discomfort.
Once the numbing cream has set in, the Plasma IQ™™ pen device is brought close to the skin to deliver a targeted microbeam of plasma energy, causing sublimation to the surface of your skin. The Plasma IQ™ handheld device is applied to each target zone while emitting focused energy to the skin.
The process creates microinjuries on the skin, which stimulates fibroblast cellular activity, regenerates cells, and promotes collagen production. The result is a fabulous skin tightening, lifting, and resurfacing, which continues over a period of 12 weeks as the skin heals.
What can I expect after Plasma IQ™?
As Meredith Axline, RN, says, “The Plasma IQ™ treatment is the gift that keeps giving.” You will notice immediate lifting and tightening after a couple of days when the skin begins to heal. However, over the next 12 weeks the skin continues to tighten and lift as it heals, delivering the full effect of the treatment after three months.
Unlike a surgical facelift where your whole body needs to recover from surgery, the healing time after Plasma IQ™ is minimal. Expect your skin to appear a little red and swollen for two days after treatment, but this will dissipate each day as your skin heals. Over the next week, the microinjuries will begin to scab, and you’ll start to see tighter, smoother results.
Our patients are amazed by the stunning results of this non-surgical procedure. As with other skin rejuvenation and aesthetic treatments, you can prolong your results by applying sunscreen on a daily basis with an SPF of 30 or higher.
How long does Plasma IQ™ last?
Typically results last one to three years depending on the patient’s specific level of concern and depth of wrinkles. This process can be repeated in three months if a patient desires. We encourage you to contact our office to discuss your profile and treatment plan.
What can I expect to pay?
Procedures start at $350 for the Plasma IQ™ treatment, depending on how much a client wants to work on or what areas are needing to be covered. Pricing can be adjusted or discounted if multiple treatment areas are selected. We offer special bundling packages for maximum savings.
