What Is Plasma Fibroblast Therapy?

Plasma fibroblast therapy is an aesthetic procedure some healthcare providers may offer as an alternative to laser, injections, or surgical therapies to tighten and improve the appearance of skin.

Plasma fibroblast treatment is a relatively novel and growing minimally invasive aesthetic skin procedure.

This therapy is fairly new to the facial and cosmetic treatment scene.

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 doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer.

Moreover, according to a reputable article published in 2019, thermal deterioration or heat damage caused from plasma fibroblast treatments helps the following:

  • It breaks the proteins on skin
  • It supports tissue rejuvenation 
  • It stimulates fibroblast activity 
  • It causes tissue contraction and tightens the skin as a result. 

What are the benefits of plasma fibroblast treatment?

Plasma fibroblast treatment is a non-surgical treatment that can be used to treat following situations:

  • Eyelid lift / tightening 
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Neck tightening 
  • Reduction of wrinkles on upper lip
  • Elimination of cracks and scars 

Cosmetologists may also use plasma fibroblast treatment as an alternative to lip fillings in order to make the lips look bigger. 

Does it work?

Plasma fibroblast treatment may ensure these if performed in a safe and controlled environment: 

  • Rejuvenation of skin tissue
  • Mild to moderate skin tightening 
  • Skin face contour change at certain degree 

According to a reputable medicine magazine in 2014, effects are expected to stimulate fibroblast production up to 1 year after the treatment. 

Therefore, there is not much study about plasma fibroblast treatment since it is a relatively new aesthetic procedure. 

You should not undergo fibroblast treatment in the following situations:

  • Breastfeeding and pregnant women
  • If you are allergic to topical anesthetic preparations
  • Individuals who are likely to become infected in the treatment area

In addition, if you have received keloid or hypertrophic scarring treatment, it is recommended that you approach plasma fibroblast therapy with caution.

It is important to consult to a healthcare professional prior to the procedure to discuss your treatment goals and any concerns you may have.

How is the procedure performed?

The procedure may vary slightly depending on where you are applying the treatment, but the basic steps usually include:

  • Cleansing the skin and applying a topical anesthetic (numbing) cream. You may need to wait about 30 minutes for the anesthetic cream to take effect. Treating the specified skin area with a plasma pen.
  • The pen will create small micro currents causing crust-like spots on the skin. A professional will remove the anesthetic cream and apply a cooling gel in order to minimize tangling and burning sense. 
  • The procedure usually lasts 30 to 60 minutes. 
  • After the procedure is complete, you can expect the small spots to scab and fall off after about 1 week. It should look tighter and firmer as your skin heals in the next few weeks.
  • After all, some people may benefit from one session of treatment, while others may need at least three sessions to see the result.The procedure may vary slightly depending on where you are applying the treatment, but the basic steps usually include:

Most Frequently Asked Questions About Fibroblast Treatment

We know you have a lot of questions. The good news is that we have the answers you need. Read on to see what Fibroblast is all about and see if it’s something that’ll work for you.

No. Fibroblast treatment is a non-surgical solution for skin tightening. There is no pain associated with this procedure, though some patients may feel a minimal amount of discomfort.

A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area before the procedure.

Immediately after the Fibroblast procedure, you may notice that your skin is red and slightly swollen. This is normal and should subside in around three days. Though you may see a slight redness lingering for up to 14 days. 

While the procedure is underway, carbon crusts form on the skin. You should avoid the urge to touch these crusts post-procedure. You can expect them to last around a week. They’ll naturally lift off as new skin appears underneath the treated area. 

When you consider that you’re getting a skin tightening solution without the need for dangerous surgery, these side effects are much easier to swallow. 

Fibroblast skin tightening is a revolutionary new procedure. It provides an alternative to skin tightening without necessitating dangerous surgical procedures. You won’t need to go under the knife or miss weeks of work post-procedure with Fibroblast, but should still expect to see similar results as if you had.

Your esthetician uses an electric handheld device called a plasma Fibroblast pen for the procedure. This pen uses a metal probe to ionize atmospheric gas between its tip and the gasses that the skin naturally emits. This forms a plasma charge.

An electrical arc is then created, shrinking the targeted skin. Your tissues will retract and tighten, providing you with a more youthful-looking appearance. Skin elasticity and tightening will continue to improve as time goes on post-treatment, and your skin continues to heal and repair.  

Fibroblast treatment length will depend upon the size of the area that’s being treated. You can expect the procedure to take anywhere between half an hour and two hours.

A topical numbing cream will be applied before your treatment and given thirty minutes to take full effect. You’ll also be given a cream after your procedure to help in the healing process.

You should notice results immediately after your appointment. As cell turnover occurs and the production of collagen increases, you’ll notice further changes to your skin. You should expect to see the full results of your treatment after around three months. 

Fibroblast procedure results typically last for three years.
