Plasma Fibroblast Therapy
What is plasma fibroblast therapy?
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.
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 is the recovery period?
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.
How long does it last?
Plasma fibroblast can last for up to three years. Since Botox usually only lasts a few months, people often prefer fibroblast if they want long-lasting results.
Where can I have the treatment?
Many women use fibroblast to treat stretch marks that develop during pregnancy, while some patients use it primarily to treat facial wrinkles and creases. The following are some of the most typical issues and regions that are addressed operating plasma fibroblast skin tightening:
Facial lines and wrinkles
Will it hurt?
Fibroblast treatment is a non-surgical solution for skin tightening. There is no pain associated with this procedure, though some patients may feel a minimal amount of discomfort. If you are concerned about the potential pain during the procedure, we can administer a topical anaesthetic.
What are the Side Effects?
Immediately after the Fibroblast procedure, you may notice that your skin is red and slightly swollen. This is normal and should subside in around three days. Though you may see a slight redness lingering for up to 14 days.
While the procedure is underway, carbon crusts form on the skin. You should avoid the urge to touch these crusts post-procedure. You can expect them to last around a week. They’ll naturally lift off as new skin appears underneath the treated area.
