Fibroblast Skin Tightening

What is Fibroblast skin tightening & Collagen Lift?

Plasma is a hot ionized gas consisting of approximately equal numbers of positively charged ions and negatively charged electrons.

When-electrical arch – plasma touches the skin surface, the heat is subsequently transferred into the epidermis effecting papillary layer which contains fibroblast cells. The result is contraction and tightening of the skin. Excess skin is reduced resulting in some degree of face lifting and wrinkle reduction. This is consistent with most, if not all, methods of skin resurfacing based on controlled skin damage, which activates healing response and promotes skin rejuvenation.

Plasma Lift is a method of controlled damage (by heating, fragmentation, vaporization

it is not as invasive or ablative as lasers and most importantly, there are no open wounds during the healing phase. This approach reduces the risks of scarring, infection, loss of pigmentation etc.

After the treatment small spots – scabs form. They need 5-7 days to fall off and during this time the patient should keep the skin surface clean and apply after care products to promote healing.

Plasma works similarly to a fractional laser

Which areas can be treated?

What Results Can I Expect?

Slight initial positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but for the final results from new collagen formation, it will take over 4 weeks toshow. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol. consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.

Pre Procedure Instructions

Avoid any kind of tanning (Spray tanning, tanning injections, sun tanning and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker skinned. You may even wish to consider using a natural Tyrosinase Inhibitor to helps ensure there is no overproduction of pigment in the skin aka hyperpigmentation.

Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Pen, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, as this may prevent your treatment being performed by your technician at the time you want it.

This is the most important step in order to insure the best results and prevent the possibility of scarring or infection. Following Aftercare instructions exactly will ensure you achieve the best possible results

Please apply SPF to prevent sun damage.

After scabs have peeled please nourish your skin with hydrating serums and moisturizers. Stay away from active products like retinols for 3-8 weeks after scabs have peeled.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. For some, one treatment will suffice, for other patients a repeat treatment or treatments after 8 weeks may be needed.
