Fibroblasting (Plasma Pen)
Immediately visible skin tightening without surgery
Plasma Fibroblast is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment which offers an alternative to invasive surgical procedures. Fibroblast delivers results which rival surgical procedures, Treatment is delivered using an electronic hand-piece, (the plasma pen) the device uses a small metal probe to ionize atmospheric gas, producing a tiny plasma flash between the device tip and the patient’s skin. This superficial trauma causes the skin in its vicinity to tighten and lift, giving results that are noticeable immediately after only one treatment. Skin tightening will continue to improve as the skin heals and repairs. Treating everything from fine lines and scarring, to skin tags and smoker’s lines, crow’s feet and droopy eyelids. A completely safe procedure, suitable for all ages and most skin tones, an ideal treatment for anyone who wants to achieve a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion with results which are incredibly natural!
Plasma Fibroblast Non-surgical rejuvenation has increased in popularity due to its many advantages over surgery
One of the major advantages of Plasma is that it offers a much less invasive/expensive alternative to surgery as well as the time it takes to carry out.
- Virtually pain-free treatment.
- No cutting of the skin and no stitches required.
- No general anaesthetic required.
- A topical numbing cream is applied which is sufficient to allow comfort throughout the procedure.
- Rapid scar-less healing.
- Return to normal activities immediately
- No complications associated with surgery.
- If aftercare is followed correctly there is no risk of infection.
- Significantly lower cost than traditional surgery.
In contrast to conventional surgery, the skin cannot be ‘over-lifted’. The technology used means that once the skin has reached maximum lifting point, it just stops working. So it is guaranteed that only the natural excess skin is reduced, without thinning of the skin or damage to the deeper layers.
How many treatments will I need?
In most cases only one treatment is required. However, depending on the area of the face or body being treated and individual conditions and expectations one or two post-treatments may be necessary.
Additional treatments can be safely done at 6 to 8 week intervals after initial procedure.
Is the procedure painful?
You can experience some mild discomfort, which really depends on your pain threshold. The topical anesthetic is applied 30 Prior to your appointment to ensure minimal discomfort.
Will there be downtime?
Downtime depends on your working situation and lifestyle. You can resume your normal work immediately but this does not mean there is no downtime. The tiny plasma flash causes ‘crusts’ to form on the skin giving the distinctive dotting effect. You can also experience significant swelling in the area treated, particularly in the eye area. The swelling will diminish over a 2-5 day period and the crust (brown dots) that occur are gone on average between 5-7 days.
They may also be covered over with a specially formulated mineral make-up to reduce their visibility.
When will I see visible results?
The positive effect of the Plasma Fibroblast treatment is instant and visible during the treatment itself, but will be even more noticeable at 4 weeks with continuing improvement up to 12 weeks.
How long will the result last?
Plasma Skin Tightening is more than a simple tightening treatment, skin is completely tightened, so the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like any surgical or cosmetic procedures, the effects of Plasma treatment are not entirely permanent and wont stop the ageing process. However, the results you get should last you for many years.
Are there any risks/side effects?
Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe procedure in thousands of patients due to its non-invasive nature.
However, as with most cosmetic procedures, patients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the first 5 to 10 days after treatment. The entire treatment area will have small but visible brown dotted marks, which will begin to shed naturally over the course of 5-10 days. Some patients will also experience 3 to 5 days of swelling, especially with eyelid treatments. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyper-pigmentation, follow the aftercare instruction given to you prior to your treatment.
Do I need a Consultation?
Yes. Strictly no appointments for Plasma Fibroblast treatments will be allocated unless a thorough consultation appointment has been attended.
How can I prepare for my appointment?
Please attend your appointment with clean skin no moisturiser, makeup/tanning products on the treatment area, esp no mascara on lashes if the eye area is being treated.
You may wish to wash your hair on the morning of your treatment as the treatment area cannot get wet for the full week following the procedure.
If you are having an upper and lower eye-lift treatment on the same day, it is advisable to make arrangements not to drive yourself.
Is there any aftercare required?
YES.. During your first appointment you will be given aftercare instructions. Following these instructions is critical for best results.
