WHAT IS FIBROBLAST PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING THERAPY?

Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening is a cosmetic treatment that uses plasma, an ionized gas, to non-surgically tighten skin. A relatively new innovation in the beauty industry in North America, Fibroblast Skin Tightening has been used for a number of years in Europe. This minimally invasive procedure is often described as “soft surgery” as the treatment delivers amazing results without the use of a scalpel, stitch, or bandage and it is highly effective at treating fine lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, and skin tags, as well as reducing excess lower eyelid skin.

HOW IS IT PERFORMED?

It’s done by using a plasma energy pen and through the sublimation process, turning gas in the air to a solid. As a result, it creates a series of small dots along the tension lines in the skin, which triggers an instant contracting and tightening of the skin that also promotes collagen build up in the area. Fibroblast is virtually painless and doesn’t require anesthesia. Numbing cream is used to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
The extremely accurate device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its metal tip and the skin (targeting only the epidermis layer). An electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissue retraction and tightening gives results that are comparable to invasive surgery by physically reducing the volume of skin in the surrounding area. The skin around the spot tightens instantly, pulling the cells closer together.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A TREATMENT?

Usually, Fibroblast treatments last approximately one hour. The treatment is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia, and there are no cuts or blood. While the treatment device itself never touches the skin, the plasma flash creates a tiny dot (carbon crusts) upon contact. These superficial dots, which form in a symmetrical grid over the treatment area, are part of the normal healing process, and will fall off 5-7 days post-treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities right away with minimal discomfort.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Most patients see results instantly, which continue to improve over the course of the following 8-12 weeks. Following Fibroblast treatments, patients will enjoy noticeably healthier, firmer skin for years to come. In fact, 90% of patients treated have reported improvements to wrinkles, fine lines, and puffiness, and 84% reported receiving compliments on their skin after treatment. The positive effects of the procedure will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen by the 8th to 12th week as the skin has had time to go through a full regenerative cycle. This is dependent on age and each individual’s overall healing abilities, on the specific area being treated, the skin’s laxity, and individual response to treatment. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results. Those planning on treatment should also be aware that their race and genetics can also have an effect of the length of beneficial effects.
