TELL ME MORE ABOUT PLASMA FIBROBLAST SKIN TIGHTENING

Fibroblast Skin Tightening is a cosmetic treatment that uses 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. The handheld device creates a tiny arc from the end of the device’s tip to the skin. That arc, when contacting the skin, causes sublimation which eliminates excess skin and leaves the surrounding skin untouched. The sublimation leaves behind a tiny carbon dot (excess skin) which sheds naturally in 4 to 7 days on average. The skin around the carbon dots, due to the massive boost in collagen, firms and tightens and the new skin that forms below the dot is soft, firm and tight.

The effects of Fibroblast do not revert. It’s not like botox or fillers where it wears off and you need to repeat the same procedure every couple of months. The results of the fibroblast treatment are as permanent as surgery. You will continue to age but the effects or results of the fibroblast become your new starting point for your aging process.   A minimally invasive procedure with much lower risk and at a more affordable price than actual surgery.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin's laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 12 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results, although it is uncommon to require more than two treatments in the same area. Appointments must be spaced out by 6-8 weeks.

HOW LONG WILL THE TREATMENTS LAST?

The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after 12 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results. 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.

How Plasma Pen Treatment Works:

Plasma is delivered into the skin to directly through the Plasma Pen. By doing so an immediate tightening, lifting, and remodeling of the skin begins to occur. 

TREATMENT: 

  • Before treatment a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area

  • The feeling during treatment is like the sensation of a rubber band snapping against your skin. 

  • Your provider will use the pen to use plasma that will appear as tiny dots on the skin. As the plasma jumps from needle to skin, the needle never touches your skin.

  • There may be an ozone smell from the plasma which often is mistaken for a burning smell.

  • A healing gel is applied post-treatment to soothe and protect the skin.

PRE-TREATMENT:

  • Use a mild exfoliant and SPF for two weeks prior treatment. 

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for two weeks prior treatment

  • Avoid skincare products with retinols, AHAs, tretinoin or any type of Vitamin A derivatives two weeks prior and post treatment

  • Do not wear contact lenses if treating eye area

  • Let your provider know if you have a history of cold sores, a medication may be needed prior treatment to prevent breakout.

POST TREATMENT 

  • Swelling is normal 24-48 hours post treatment.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 14 days post treatment

  • Wear Sunscreen

  • Avoid makeup for 7 days

  • Tiny crusts will appear in the treatment area. Do not exfoliate or rub of the crusts that form. They will typically fall off naturally within 7-10 days.

  • Other Post Treatment alone with After Care products will be given to the patient directly by the provider after treatment.

  • Avoid the gym for 48 hours to prevent sweating and potential infection. 

  • Keep the treated areas as dry as possible for the first 38 hours.
