WHAT IS PLASMA FIBROBLAST THERAPY?
Plasma Skin Tightening or Plasma Fibroblast is a revolutionary treatment that allows us to eliminate the excess tissue that causes wrinkles, sagging skin, stretch marks, and even scarring.
Plasma fibroblast therapy targets fibroblasts. These are collagen– and protein-producing cells in the dermis, the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer.
Fibroblasts play an important role in helping skin wounds heal as well as maintaining skin firmness and tightness.
Plasma fibroblast therapy uses a pen-like device that discharges a high-frequency electric current to small areas of the skin.
The plasma tip doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer.
According to an 2019 article published in the PMFA journal, the thermal disruption, or heat damage, from plasma fibroblast therapy:
breaks down proteins in the skin
encourages tissue regeneration
stimulates fibroblast activity
causes tissue contraction (tightening)
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Non-surgical blepharoplasty – skin tightening of saggy upper and lower eyelids
–Unwanted wrinkles on face – frown lines, crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, neck lines etc.
– Skin pigmentation, age spots on face or hands, sun spots, melasma, freckles
– Scarring including stretch marks, acne scars and post-surgical scars
_ Tummy, front thighs, back thighs, elbows, knees
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
While the procedure may vary slightly based on where you’re having the treatment, the basic steps typically include:
Cleansing the skin and applying a topical anesthetic (numbing) cream. You may need to wait about 30 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect.
Treating the designated skin area with the plasma pen. The pen will create small arcs of microcurrents that make small scab-like dots on the skin.
A professional will remove the numbing cream and apply a cooling gel to minimize the tingling and burning sensation whenever possible.
The procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes to perform on small to medium areas.
Once the procedure is completed, you can expect the small dots to scab over and fall off after about 1 week. Over the next couple of weeks, as your skin heals, it should appear tighter and firmer.
Some people may see benefits from one treatment, while others may require three treatments before they see results.
