PLASMA FIBROBLAST

PLASMA FIBROBLAST TREATMENT

Before and After images

Plasma fibroblast treatment is a non-invasive treatment, which encourages tissue regeneration.  It stimulates fibroblast activity to increase collagen and elastin in the skin and causes tissue contraction (tightening of the skin).

It is used for:

  • Eyelid lift (Non-surgical blepharoplasty), tightening of excess skin on the upper eyelids.
  • Skin tightening on the neck.

The Plasma Pen, which is an FDA approved, CE approved device, is used to perform plasma fibroblast treatment.

Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen and transmits that energized gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. You will typically see immediate tightening along with cumulative improvements over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin. In some cases, it may require more than one session depending on the desired results. Results are long-lasting, usually around 2 years.

IS THE PLASMA PEN TREATMENT PAINFUL?

The area to be treated is numbed before treatment takes place so there is minimal to no pain.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE PLASMA PEN TREATMENT?

The Plasma Pen is a relatively safe treatment, particularly when compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures. Minor side effects like swelling, bruising, scabbing or crusting can occur, which results in a few days.

People with the following conditions, should not have this treatment:

  • People with Fat/water retention, not loose skin.
  • Pregnant or Breast feeding.
  • People with a tendency to form keloid scars, those with regular cold sores.
  • Skin Fitzpatrick 5 or above
  • Epilepsy
  • HIV/AIDS/Autoimmune deficiencies

WHAT DOWNTIME CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY PLASMA PEN TREATMENT?

  • Few days downtime for treatment on the face and neck areas
  • Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 2
  • After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form.
  • Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7.

PLASMA PEN AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Apply healing balm on the treated area for a few days. Avoid direct contact with the sun, use sunscreen. Avoid picking/scrubbing the treated area.

CONDITIONS TREATED:

  • Plasma fibroblast is used for skin tightening.
  • Non-surgical blepharoplasty – eyelid lift, tightening of excess skin on the upper eyelids.
  • Skin tightening on the neck.
