In the world of skin care, Plasma Fibroblast is also known as plasma pen and even fibroblast skin tightening… call it whatever you want, just do it!
This minimally invasive treatment has all the anti-aging appearance benefits of more invasive procedures and very little to almost no risk. It is way more affordable than surgery, and has no significant down time, so you could actually do this on your lunch break and return to work the same day.
What kind of results can I expect from a plasma fibroblast treatment?
Plasma Fibroblast creates instant (yes, instant!) lift, tightening and reduction of skin volume. Does it sound too good to be true? It gets even better. The skin tightening continues for 8-12 more weeks after your appointment! This treatment can be performed virtually anywhere on the face or body that has loose skin. Can you say non-surgical tummy tightening? Eyelid lift? Yes, please!
One treatment is all that is usually needed, but some cases may require a second treatment for the best result. Touch ups or repeat treatments can be performed 8 weeks post treatment. Although results can last as long as 3-5 years, we can’t actually stop the aging process, so many repeat the process yearly on their problem areas (like the jowls I inherited from my grandmother). Factors such as age, SPF use, diet, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption all contribute to your final results.
How does this anti-aging skin treatment work?
Fibroblast is performed by a certified practitioner and uses a minimally invasive FDA approved tool which uses an electrical charge to react with the gasses coming off of our skin. This immediately shrinks the skin, causing instant tightening. A small carbon dot appears on the skin as a result of each plasma charge. Healing of the carbon crusts happens within 4-10 days, but the Fibroblast cells continue to do their thing (produce collagen! Did you know our bodies stop doing that around the age of 25?!) for at least 8 more weeks, so final results will be fully visible after this time. A second treatment or touch up may also be considered after this time.
Are there negative effects of plasma fibroblast treatments?
Very few! You will be walking around with carbon crusts on treated areas for 4-10 days, but they will dry up and fall off. You can’t cover them with anything like makeup, just let them heal.
You will have fresh, pink, new skin below the dots, so staying out of the sun and using a mineral sunscreen is strongly advised. In the first few days, you may experience some swelling, especially if you choose to work on the eye area. This is easily managed and resolves in about 48 hours.
You will experience some mild itching as the crusts dry, but do not pick or scratch the dots, please! Allow them to fall off when they are ready.
There are some health conditions that would prevent you from being a candidate for Fibroblast, and you should be in good health at the time of the procedure, so your practitioner will require a consultation and medical history.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does finroblast help connective tissue and epithelial cells?
A: Yes, finroblast helps connective tissue and epithelial cells by synthesizing collagen, a protein that is essential for connective tissue health. Collagen is also important for maintaining the structural integrity of epithelial cells, so by synthesizing collagen, finroblast helps ensure the health and function of both connective tissue and epithelial cells.
Q: What is plasma peel?
A: Plasma Peel is a treatment that uses the power of plasma to resurface and regenerate the skin. Plasma is a gas made up of charged particles called ions. When these ions are energized, they can break down unwanted tissue. This makes plasma an ideal tool for aesthetic treatments like Plasma Peel, which uses plasma to remove the top layer of skin and reveal younger, brighter skin underneath.
Q: What is the extracellular matrix?
A: The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a network of fibrous proteins and glycosaminoglycans that provides structural support to cells and tissues. It also helps to mediate cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions.
The ECM is secreted by cells into the surrounding space (the extracellular environment), and it plays an important role in many cellular processes, including migration, proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis.
Q: Is human skin made up of collagen fibers?
A: Yes! Collagen is the most common protein in the human body and it’s a major component of our skin. It gives our skin its strength and elasticity.
Amino acids are also found in the skin. They are the building blocks of proteins that are essential for human life. Proteins make up our skin, muscles, organs, and hair. There are over 20 different amino acids in the human body. Some of them can be produced by the body itself, while others must come from the foods we eat.
Q: What are endothelial cells?
A: Endothelial cells are the cells that line our blood vessels. They play a key role in regulating blood clotting, inflammation, and the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to tissues.
Damage or dysfunction of endothelial cells can lead to a variety of diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. For this reason, scientists are actively studying endothelial cells in hopes of understanding their growth factors and developing new treatments for these diseases.
