How Does Plasma Fibroblasting Work?
The ‘Plasma Pen’ (plasma device) creates an electrical discharge to the skin that causes micro-trauma to the epidermal layer (top layers of skin). The precise flashes of plasma trigger natural healing in the epidermal and dermal layers to promote new collagen growth and rejuvenate the skin’s tone and texture with long lasting results.
Not everyone will be a match for this treatment, unfortunately darker skin has a higher risk for scarring and hyperpigmentation.
Below is the scale that is used in all aesthetic treatments.
This treatment is best for Fitzpatrick's 1-3, check your skin type below.
What Areas Can Be Treated With The Plasma Pen?
Skin must be crepe for this treatment
Fibroblast is used to treat a number of skin imperfections,
especially around the eye area, including:
Saggy skin around eyes – eyelid tightening
Skin tags and sunspots
Loose stomach skin post pregnancy
Wrinkles and lines around the mouth
Excess, sagging skin on neck / jowls
Loose skin under arms
Lines on the forehead
Necklines (turkey neck)
What is a Fibroblast Treatment Like?
Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area being treated. The service concludes with the application of a post-treatment cream to aid in healing.
Procedure time can take between 30 and 120 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
How long is the downtime?
You may experience some mild swelling for the first few days and carbon crusts (scabs) that form due to the plasma pen.
It is very important to avoid the sun for the first week or so, while your skin is healing. If you need to be out in the sun, wear a hat that will shade the entire area you received the treatment.
After the tiny scabs shed off, you’ll want to minimize the risk of hyper-pigmentation and apply SPF 30+. Remember, the skin that appears is basically new skin. Think of a newborn baby’s skin and treat your skin accordingly.
Clients can expect to see full results at 12 weeks of natural collagen building following a single Fibroblast treatment.
Results continue for up to 6 months.
Results depend on your bodies healing abilities, using your aftercare consistently and use of SPF 30+ for at least 12 weeks.
Not using sunscreen may result in
hyperpigmentation in the area(s) treated.
SPF should be worn daily, EVERY DAY you are outside. SPF must be reapplied every two hours to be effective.
For maximum results you may need additional treatments, as results vary client to client, depending on age and degree of elasticity.
