PLASMA FIBROBLAST SKIN TIGHTENING
HOW DOES PLASMA FIBROBLAST SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?
Plasma fibroblast has increased in popularity due to its many advantages over surgery. There is less downtime, it’s less expensive, no cutting of the skin and no stitches. This means you can return to work even sooner.
Plasma skin tightening is relatively new in North America but has been safely and effectively performed in Europe for many years. The precision device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between the device tip and skin to release a plasma charge. This electrical stream, or arc, instantly shrinks the skin in the targeted area. The tissue retraction give results that are comparable to invasive surgery.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Plasma Fibroblast isn’t like applying a tightening cream. When done properly you can expect results to last as long as they would with an invasive surgery. Like any surgical procedure the effects aren’t entirely permanent and won’t stop the aging process. However, the results you get should last you for many years. The positive effect of the Plasma Fibroblast treatment will be noticeable almost immediately after the first treatment and continuing over 4 weeks. Depending on the body part treated and expected results, an additional treatment may be required after 6 to 8 weeks. Negative lifestyle choices such as too much sun, smoking and excess alcohol consumption are discouraged in order to maintain lasting results. Those who want a treatment should also be aware that personal genetics can have an effect on the length of treatment benefits.
WHAT KIND OF SIDE EFFECTS CAN I EXPECT?
Plasma Fibroblast has been shown to be a safe and non-invasive procedure in thousands of patients. However, as with most cosmetic procedures, patients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the first five to ten days after treatment.
There will be some tiny brown marks in the treatment area. This is the result of scabbing and will flake away over a week or so, exposing a pink layer of healthy new skin. Some patients will also experience three to five days of swelling, especially with eyelid treatments. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare instruction given to you prior to your treatment.
WHO SHOULDN’T GET A PLASMA FIBROBLAST TREATMENT?
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not get a treatment. The treatment is also not advised for candidates with very dark skin. This is because the risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation is much higher.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR DAY OF TREATMENT
You don’t want to wear makeup or use any moisturizers on your day of treatment. Just come in with clean skin. We suggest taking an antihistamine one hour before your appointment and continue to take antihistamines for two to three days after your appointment. This will reduce swelling in the treatment area.
A numbing agent is place on the treatment area and left to take effect. When the area is sufficiently numb, the treatment will begin. During the treatment you will feel some heat and minor irritation. Treatment time will last from 45 minutes and up to several hours depending on the size of the treatment area.
During your first appointment you will be given aftercare instructions. Following these instructions is critical for best results. No exfoliators or harsh cleansers can be used in the week following treatment. We recommend a gentle, pH balanced soap such as Cetaphil. You should also avoid rubbing or scratching the treated area. You will be sent home will a wound healing gel that should be applied to the treated area 2-3 per day for the first 4 days.
WHAT DOES PLASMA FIBROBLAST COST?
Plasma Fibroblast is much more affordable than traditional surgery.
Final results are visible 6 weeks after treatment. Follow Up treatments may be performed after 6 to 8 weeks depending on your skin’s healing. Follow up treatments are often offered at a discount.
