Heath Canada authorizes certain plasma pens for use by health-care professionals – CTV

May 12, 2022

Heath Canada has updated its advisory for plasma pens, noting that select pens have been authorized for use in Canada.

In an update to a product warning from 2019, Health Canada said on Wednesday it has authorized the sale of “certain plasma pens in Canada for use by health-care professionals only.”

A list of the authorized plasma pens can be found by searching Health Canada’s Medical Devices Active Licence Listing.

According to Heath Canada, plasma pens are small handheld medical devices that generate electrical discharges on the surface of the skin, which causes a controlled burn and spreads heat throughout a targeted area in a non-surgical, non-invasive skin treatment.

The pen sessions, also known as fibroblast, are promoted for cosmetic skin treatments such as eyelid lifts, wrinkle reduction and the removal of moles, skin tags, scars and spots.
