The Plasma Pen is a non-invasive, skin rejuvenating device used to treat a variety of different skin disorders such as wrinkles and lines, stretch marks and acne scars, to name a few.
Plasma Pen devices discharge low-frequency plasma energy to small areas of the skin. The process breaks down proteins in the skin, encourages tissue regeneration by stimulating fibroblast activity in the dermis and collagen production resulting in tissue contraction (tightening). Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body and the only ones that can make Type III collagen. This type of collagen helps to minimise fine lines, wrinkles and micro-furrows and improves the elasticity, suppleness and hydration of our skin. Most fibroblasts are inactive and will not produce collagen unless they are specifically reactivated by a wound healing process or inflammatory response. Fibroblasting is the art of reactivating this production process, for smoother and more lifted looking skin. It can be done on the face and body (e.g eyes, around lip, neck, stomach)Book a Consultation

Frequently asked questions
Can Plasma Pen Treat All Skin Tones
No – not with full PlasmaPen™ treatment anyway (for rejuvenation only skin treatment – where the skin is not fully broken and the fibroblasts are not targeted – we can actually treat any skin type). For full PlasmaPen™ treatment, we only treat skin types 1 to 3 on the Fitzpatrick scale. Your technician will be able to determine precisely what skin type you are and will likely use one of our professional Skin Type Sensors. Treating anyone with darker skin than this with full treatment is putting clients at risk of pigmentation. The reason for this is that people with darker skins have melanocytes capable of making large amounts of melanin. When black skin is injured, for example, the melanocytes will usually either hyperpigment or hypopigment. Dark skinned people have a greater risk of forming keloid and hypertrophic scars too. As will be discussed in your consultation, certain skin types heal at different rates. For example, oily-skinned clients may take longer to heal. Our technicians give a great deal of consideration to clients who are contraindicated and/or who may have sensitivities. This will be discussed with you prior to any treatment and you should be completely honest and transparent in your responses. Clients with compromised immune systems may also take longer to heal and may not always achieve the results they expect due to their lymphatic system not working properly. Without a fully functioning lymphatic system, the cells responsible for the 4 phases of our procedures healing process (coagulation, inflammation, cell regeneration and tissue maturation) cannot always fully do their job properly and the rejuvenation, lifting and tightening of the skin may thus not then give the same level of results that are usually common with our PlasmaPen™ treatment.
How long does it take?
Our treatment is probably the fastest out there thanks to our spectacular plasma delivery, the incredible ergonomic and lightweight design of our PlasmaPen™, the tiniest probes, and the best technician training and support that is available anywhere from any provider.
There are a superfluity of treatments available but, to give you some examples, it should require about 30 to 40 minutes to treat your upper or lower eye areas. Procedures like a full neck treatment or a full forehead lift will be longer and prior to any treatment you will have the area numbed. Depending on the numbing and pre-treatment products used, the length of your pre-treatment consultation, the forms you will need to complete, the individual technician and then the aftercare advice provided to you after your treatment, this will of course extend the overall time you will spend with your technician. Depending on the particular treatment, your objectives and you as an individual, your technician may recommend more than one session.
How many treatments will I need?
Often only one but it will depend on your personal expectations, the area being treated, your age, the condition and type of your skin, and many other factors. We implacably believe that you simply will not get better or faster results alongside less downtime and faster recovery than you will enjoy with an official PlasmaPen™ by Louise Walsh International procedure from one of our expert technicians. Each and every client is different and your treatment plan will always be bespoke. In our experience, some clients may require 2 or more treatments to achieve optimal results, especially for some procedures and skin conditions where the results will be cumulative by design. Many clients are, as we say, absolutely delighted with the results that our technicians and advanced plasma technology are able to deliver after just one treatment.
Remember too that although your treated area may look completely healed from the outside very quickly and that our results are often utterly dramatic from day one; it takes several weeks and sometimes months for the cells living within your epidermal junction to fully do the job that we have told them to do in traumatising your skin with PlasmaPen™. We advise all our technicians, for most treatments, not to treat anyone for a minimum of 8 weeks after their first treatment because before that point, we are unlikely to be able to see and fully appreciate all the results that the first treatment actually achieved. Often, at that point, they will tell you that you simply don’t need another treatment in that area because you have indeed achieved optimal results/effects!
Is it painful
We don’t think so and especially not with our #1 device. For many, PlasmaPen™ is virtually a pain-free treatment and is often described as merely tingly. We see many clients fall asleep during their procedure. However, the treatment may be moderately uncomfortable depending on you and where you are being treated. Eyelid procedures (where the skin is at its thinnest) can be more painful for some people but our device, plasma delivery, and super-fine probes allow our technicians to work very quickly and efficiently and this minimises potential discomfort for you by design.
Your technician will numb the area before treatment and sometimes during too depending on the products they use and the regulations in this area. For treatments on large areas, technicians will typically “numb as they go” so that the numbing effects don’t wear off while they are still working. It’s all relative too – think how painful something like cosmetic surgery can be after a procedure when your anaesthetic wears off.
How long do results last?
PlasmaPenTM delivers exceptionally long-lasting results. From all observations, clinical trials, and real-world experience, about three years is normal. Once the skin is tightened then it is actually permanent. However, your skin will still continue to age and this will happen at different rates based on genetics, lifestyle choices, and free radicals so although we suggest treatment results will last for around 3 years, some clients will experience longer-lasting results than others. Remember too that in addition to rejuvenation, we are actually helping repair the scaffolding of the skin with our fibroblasting to mitigate the aging process.
If, for example, we treat your smokers’ lines and you then continue to smoke then results may possibly not be as long-lasting compared to if you had stopped. If we make your eyelid hoods or bags disappear then that is also a permanent effect although, of course, they could potentially grow back in years to come.

What our patients say...
One word… WOW! All I can say is my skin is glowing… I wanted to prep my skin for my wedding and I bought a course of Hydrafacial and my skin has never been better.
The therapists are so lovely and even created a skincare routine at home for me using medical grade products. I will be coming back after my wedding for regular facials.

I had a tattoo done from when I was younger that had gone horribly wrong and decided I wanted to get it removed and after researching machines that were the best I came across the Laser Club and the moment I enquired they were amazing, let me know everything I needed to know about the treatment and had 3 sessions and its nearly gone! So happy with the results
Bradley – Phorest Review
I get my teeth whitened here regularly, every 2-3 months and its such a great place.
The vibe is great, the staff lovely. My teeth are probably now as white as they can go. I keep on top of it by coming regularly and bringing a friend for the couples deal, its so good! £120 for 2 people!
Tom L – Phorest Review
I’ve been coming to the Laser Club in Manchester for almost a year now, I’ve had the full body package plus a few extra sessions to get those last few hairs gone, so I’ve been seeing such good results.
I naturally have very dark coarse hair so getting lasers has saved me from shaving daily and getting razor burns, which is so much better and makes me feel more confident in the summer when I wear shorts etc!! Appointments are great because I can go after work or even on the weekend. I always have Olivia who is so nice, super friendly and always makes me feel comfortable whenever I come in for my laser. She’s great! Definitely recommend!!

Wow, this clinic is on another level. Cheryl was fabulous, so friendly, warm, welcoming, professional and hugely knowledgeable. I had a Glow Getter Facial and some Cryo skin tightening therapy, all put together into one wonderful treatment by Cheryl. The whole experience was amazing, so relaxing. My skin is absolutely glowing, lifted and fresh. I will definitely be back for more of this. Just incredible, highly recommend both Cheryl and this beautiful clinic

I have been going to the Laser Club as I am getting my laser hair removal done (which is amazing) and I have had this annoying skin tag for years which I mentioned during treatment and they froze there and then fell off a week later! Didn’t hurt and was so quick… cant believe i haven’t sorted it sooner!

Really loved my first ever HydraFacial with Harriet. She is friendly and professional with a huge knowledge in skincare!
We had a consultation about my skin type and what the goal is, and she explained each step during the process and the benefits of each product. It was really relaxing and I left feeling refreshed with glowing skin! Would highly recommend the clinic and Harriet, she’s amazing!

I started going to the gym but found it was really hard to tone some areas after pregnancy and I have had the full course of 6 and the results are incredible. I am so glad I came to the Laser Club they were so lovely and can finally feel comfortable postpartum!
Louise W – Phorest Review
I really struggled as I have aged and my eyes have become very hooded from loose skin.
I researched and saw Plasma Pen was a great way to sort this problem and found the Laser Club and read great reviews. The girls were lovely and explained everything thoroughly and have now had two sessions and are so happy with results! Could not recommend enough.

All I can say is wow !!! This photo talks for itself !!! 30min cryo session and look at that result 😍.
I’m so happy the process is so relaxing to & no pain at all !! I can’t wait for my next session. I’ve been training the last 3 years and found it so hard to lose the stubborn gut as I call it, one session and it’s gone. The staff were amazing and even advised me what to eat & drink afterwards. Can’t recommend this place enough.

I was struggling with my skin after trying so many at home products that I think made my skin worse. I came for a consultation and was made a bespoke package with hydrafacial, peels and microneedling and my skin has never looked better. I also bought the OBAJI kit to keep up at home in between clients and it is so worth the money! Feel so much more confident right now thank you Laser Club

I booked in for a teeth whitening yesterday and was greeted by the front of house with a huge smile on her face.
She took me in straight away and we chatted as if we’d known each other for the past 10 years. She made me feel comfortable straight away and I’m looking forward to my 2nd session next week! I’ve already seen a huge difference on my teeth, which have become about 10 shades whiter after only one treatment!
Tammy C – Phorest Review
I recently had the pleasure of receiving full body laser hair removal services from Olivia and I must say, not only did Olivia make me feel comfortable throughout the entire process, but her expertise and professionalism really shone through.
The procedure was quick, painless and highly effective. Olivia took the time to explain every step of the process and made sure I was comfortable and informed throughout. She is incredibly knowledgeable and clearly passionate about her work, which shows in the quality of her services. I would highly recommend Olivia to anyone looking for a skilled and experienced technician. Her warm and friendly demeanor put me at ease and made the entire experience enjoyable. I am grateful for her expertise and highly recommend her services to anyone looking for laser hair removal. Overall, I highly recommend Olivia’s services as she provides a comfortable, and effective experience.

After having a baby I have very loose skin on my stomach area and nothing is working to get rid of it until I found Plasma Pen at the Laser Club and I am so happy I am no longer self conscious of my stomach area.
Jennie C – Phorest Review
Had booked in a course of Cryofacials as I felt like as I have aged everything has become looser and my jawline sags quite a bit and after the first session I noticed a difference and felt much more contoured and confident! The girls are so lovely and know what they are talking about’
Chloe Carter – Phorest Review
I have had skin tags on my body for years and decided to look into if I could get rid of them as I was charged so much through doctors and found out Cryopen can do the exact same thing.
Very cost effective and done so quickly, had to come in for a second session for some but now I am skin tag free! Thanks so much to the Laser Club, not judgemental and really friendly
Marium K – Phorest Review
As i have aged everything has gone down and I felt my face needed a lift but do not want to go down an invasive route and found the laser club offered the cryofacial and I am in love with the results, I now book once a month to keep up and the cost is incredible for what you get!
