While facial plastic surgery can produce dramatic results, not everyone needs invasive treatments to get the cosmetic results they are looking for. Plasma fibroblast skin tightening is a non-surgical option paving the future for cutting-edge cosmetic procedures.
Plasma fibroblast skin tightening uses a groundbreaking device that targets the fibroblasts in your skin. This treatment stimulates collagen and tissue regeneration for tighter, firmer, revitalized skin with a smoother tone and texture.
Why Choose Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening?
Plasma fibroblast treatment provides the following benefits:
- Minimally invasive, non-surgical solution for signs of aging
- Targets problem areas without damaging, bruising, or cutting the surrounding skin
- Quick and easy treatment
- Short downtime
- Significantly less expensive than a surgical procedure
What Can Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening Do?
- Improve skin elasticity to reduce laxity
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Restore even balance to skin tone and texture
- Fade acne scars, sun damage, age spots, and stretch marks
What Areas Can Be Treated With Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening?
The plasma fibroblast device is a versatile plasma pen that can create lifted, smooth, and younger-looking skin on nearly any part of the body, including:
- Upper and lower eyelids
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines (horizontal lines, or “11s”)
- Mid and lower face
- Stomach area
- Knees and thighs
- Upper arms
Am I a Candidate for Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening?
Ideal candidates for the plasma fibroblast skin tightening procedure are men and women with lighter skin (Fitzpatrick classifications one through three). Candidates should also be in good overall health with no pre-existing conditions.
Patients who want to avoid plastic surgery procedures such as facelift surgery, brow lifts, and eyelid lifts may be potential candidates for plasma fibroblast treatment.
Who Is Not a Good Candidate for Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening?
Fibroblast treatment is not ideal for men and women with highly melanated or dark skin. Patients with a higher amount of melanin in their skin are at higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment.
You should not undergo plasma fibroblast treatment if you:
- Are prone to keloid scarring
- Have diabetes, healing disorders, or lymphatic draining issues
- Have a pacemaker
- Experience any of the following at the time of treatment:
- Sunburn or tanned skin
- Cold or flu-like symptoms
- Cold sores in the lip area
- Pregnancy or breastfeeding
How Is Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening Performed?
The plasma fibroblast skin tightening process begins with a small, controlled electrical arc created by a plasma flash (energy) that is delivered to the lower skin layer (dermis) just below the outer skin layer (epidermis). These high-frequency electric currents will create micro-injuries in the skin that target and stimulate the production of fibroblast cells.
Fibroblast cells are a natural part of our body that plays a key role in helping our skin heal and maintaining its firmness and tightness. The collagen and protein production responsible for rejuvenating the skin can also be stimulated by these cells.
Collagen will continue to generate refreshed skin cells and heal the micro-injuries within the next four to six weeks. Once the healing is complete, patients will see a noticeable enhancement in the vitality, youthfulness, and quality of their skin.
What Is Recovery Like for Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening?
During the healing process, patients will have minimal to mild side effects that are easily manageable and entirely safe with the proper care.
The morning after treatment, you may notice swelling around your treatment areas. Swelling generally only lasts for two to three days but can last up to three weeks after extensive treatment. One easy way patients can reduce swelling and relieve inflammation is by applying cold compresses and sleeping in an elevated position for the first few nights after their treatment.
Patients should ask their care provider or fibroblast technician when it will be safe to take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine.
Redness will form in the areas that were treated and resolve roughly a week after treatment. Some patients may experience a slight rosiness for several weeks after the treatment. This will vary based on their body’s natural healing ability and the extent of their treatment.
Dry Skin and Skin Bronzing
It is normal for your skin to feel dry, peel, or flake in the days following your treatment. Treated skin may have a “sandpaper” feel for a few days. However, you shouldn’t be alarmed, as your body is on its way to producing refreshed and regenerated skin.
Your skin will also appear bronzed with small circles of carbon crust. Please do not pick, scratch, or remove these circles, as this may result in unfavorable skin discoloration and scarring. These carbon dots will lift over the next five to 12 days.
When Will I Be Able to See My Results From Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening?
One of the greatest benefits of plasma fibroblast skin tightening is that you will notice immediate skin tightening results in the treated area that will only improve over time. In the following weeks, patients will continue to see enhancements to their skin’s texture, tone, firmness, and overall quality. Your skin’s natural aging process will continue, but the benefits you achieve from this advanced procedure will last for a long period.
The results from your plasma fibroblast treatment can be prolonged by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and taking care of your skin’s health. For example, too much alcohol, smoking, and sunbathing can reduce or even reverse your improvements.
