Dark eye bags can make you look old and tired even if you’re young and well-rested. What’s even more frustrating is that this doesn’t seem to go away despite your efforts: eye creams, additional sleep, collagen eye masks–nothing seems to work! Is plastic surgery the only hope left?
Luckily, the answer is ‘no’. With the development of the Plasma Pen, there is now an effective, non-invasive treatment to get rid of those dark bags under your eyes. And that’s not all these pens are capable of helping you with, either.
Today, we will go over everything you need to know about using a Plasma Pen for under eye bags and two other unsightly skin issues–wrinkles and crow’s feet. First things first, though, let’s look at what causes these three bothersome conditions.
What Causes Eye Bags, Wrinkles, & Crows Feet?
The skin around our eyes is more delicate than the rest of our face, which is why we tend to show signs of aging there first. But there are a lot of factors that come into play when it comes to the development of eye bags, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Here are the most common ones:
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which leads to wrinkles, fine lines, eye bags, and sagging skin. This process can be reversed by stimulating the skin to produce more collagen.
Your genes can affect your skin quality and how fast you show signs of aging. This, in turn, can influence whether you are more at risk of developing eyebags, wrinkles, and/or crows feet - and how quickly. So, if your parents appear to age slowly and gracefully, it is likely that you will also experience delayed signs of aging, and vice versa.
Repeated facial expressions (smiling, frowning, raising your eyebrows, etc.) can cause creases to appear around your eyes. Over time, the skin in this area will lose its ability to snap back into place, which leads to wrinkles.
Lack of sleep can cause the blood vessels under your eyes to dilate, which leads to a dark tint and puffiness under your eyes as the blood pools in that area. And since the skin around your eyes is thin, habits like sleeping with your face pressed into the pillow or unconsciously rubbing your eyes excessively can lead to premature aging.
What Exactly Is A Plasma Pen?
A Plasma Pen is a device that converts electrical energy into electrostatic energy, which is then transmitted to the probe (the applicator tip). Oxygen and nitrogen combine to produce an arc of plasma that discharges into the top layer of the skin. This causes the skin tissue to immediately contract and creates micro-burns in the area, which stimulates the production of new collagen and other important proteins.
Plasma Pen technology is a non-invasive treatment for a wide range of skin issues, including loose skin, wrinkles, skin tags, hyperpigmentation, scars, and stretch marks.
Can You Use A Plasma Pen Under Eyes To Treat Bags, Wrinkles, & Crows Feet?
Yes, you can use a Plasma Pen for under eye bags, as well as wrinkles, fine lines, and the dreaded crow’s feet. A Plasma Pen will emit a high-frequency electric current to the skin, targeting the fibroblasts that are responsible for producing collagen and elastin. This tightens, strengthens, and plumps the skin, resulting in less noticeable wrinkles and a smoother appearance.
Why Should I Consider Using A Plasma Pen Under Eye Bags On My Face?
If you’ve tried using other skin care treatments to treat your eye bags, you probably know by now that they are not very effective–if at all. Certain products can help rehydrate the skin and make it less dark or puffy, but the effect is neither significant nor long-lasting.
In comparison, a Plasma Pen goes beyond the superficial layer of the skin and targets the cells that are responsible for skin youthfulness. Although it is non-invasive, the pen’s plasma energy penetrates into the dermis to address the root of the problem, which is the lack of collagen and elastin.
The results of Plasma Pen therapy are not only highly effective but also long-lasting. In most cases, the effect of a Plasma Pen can last 1 to 3 years, if not longer. Moreover, most people only need one session to achieve the results that they want. Compared to other procedures like microneedling, Plasma Pen therapy requires fewer repetitions and yet produces results that last longer.

How To Use A Plasma Pen Under Eye Bags Safely
Just like any other procedure that is done around the eyes, you must be extra careful when using a Plasma Pen under eye bags. Keep in mind that a Plasma Pen creates micro-burns on the skin to stimulate the production of collagen, so you can only imagine what would happen if you accidentally direct the tip to your eye.
That said, here are some tips on how to use a Plasma Pen safely when treating your eye bags:
Use an Appropriate Setting
A Plasma Pen will have different strength settings. For first-time users, the recommended setting is 1 or 2. You can work your way up as you gain more experience.
Work in a Well-Lit Area
Choose a well-lit area of the house, preferably in front of a window during the day or in your bathroom with the light on so you can clearly see what you are doing. If possible, shine a ring light on your face to eliminate any shadow from around your eyes.
Don’t rush, especially if you are a beginner. Apply the Plasma Pen slowly and carefully around your eyes, making sure to keep the tip away from your actual eyeball.
Ask Someone For Help
Working around your eyes can be very difficult on your own. If possible, ask someone to apply the Plasma Pen for you. This way, you can keep your eyes closed and eliminate the risk of damaging your eyeballs. Just make sure that the person you ask for help also knows what they are doing.
Go to a Treatment Provider
If you are doubtful of your skills, consider going to a treatment provider for your first Plasma Pen session. During your treatment, you can get first-hand experience of how to use a Plasma Pen correctly and learn what you need to do when you eventually use your device at home.
Going to a treatment provider is also a good idea if you have unsteady hands or have a condition that may possibly interfere with the Plasma Pen’s effectiveness.
Final Thoughts On Using A Plasma Pen For Under Eye Bags
Plasma Pen therapy is one of the best things that happened to the cosmetic industry. Just think about all the issues you can tackle–from minor skin tags to deep-set wrinkles–without going under the knife. Plus, the effects are long-lasting, making Plasma Pen therapy much more cost-effective than many other procedures today.
