FIBROBLAST / PLASMA
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 releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes in the skin’s layer.
Benefits from plasma fibroblast therapy:
breaks down proteins in the skin
encourages tissue regeneration
causes tissue contraction (tightening)
What are the Benefits of Plasma Fibroblast Therapy?
Plasma fibroblast therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that may be used to treat the following conditions:
Cosmetic specialists also use plasma fibroblast therapy as an alternative to lip fillers to make the lips look fuller.
Does it work?
When plasma fibroblast therapy is used it can:
improve skin texture
offer mild-to-moderate skin tightening effects
result in some degree of skin facial contour change
The effects are expected to stimulate fibroblast production for up to 1 year after treatment.
What's The Procedure Like?
While the procedure may vary slightly based on where you’re having the treatment, the basic steps typically include:
Cleansing the skin and applying a topical anesthetic (numbing) cream. You may need to wait about 30 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect.
Treating the skin area with the plasma pen. The pen will create small arcs of micro-currents that make small scab-like dots on the skin.
Remove the numbing cream and apply a cooling gel to minimize the tingling and burning
The procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes to perform.
Once the procedure is completed, you can expect the small dots to scab over and fall off after about 1 week. 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.
Who's a Good Candidate For This Procedure?
The best candidates for this procedure are people with skin wrinkling concerns.
You shouldn’t receive plasma fibroblast therapy if you:
have an infection at the treatment site
are using isotretinoin for wrinkles or acne
In addition, if you have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring, it’s recommended that you approach plasma fibroblast therapy with caution.
Is it safe and are there any side effects?
Plasma fibroblast therapy can offer results, it is not as dramatic as a surgical procedure but this treatment does still have side effects.
mild hypopigmentation (light spots)
mild hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
skin peeling and crusting
Plaxage treatment is a tool we use for our treatments for Plasma. This treatment prevents unnecessary exposure of acne from meeting into the skin. We place the Plaxage tool onto patches of acne and it uses active ingredients to permeate into the skin which helps stoping the acne from developing into larger patches.
This Plaxage tool can be used for deep wrinkle lifting and can boost cosmetics.
