Fibroblast is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to reduce the volume of excess skin.
Low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable than surgery.
Fibroblast Treatment is known for its success with Tummy and arm skin tightening.
Is Fibroblast right for me?
If you suffer from excess skin in your upper/lower eyelids, have crows feet, loose skin on your neck, wish your jawline was tighter and you didn’t have stretch marks, then Fibroblast could be the answer.
When will I see a difference?
Most people see a noticeable result after the first treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 2-4 weeks. The results vary according to the desired degree of correction and the individual’s physiological response to the treatment.
How does it work?
Plasma is created by electrical energy from the pen which at the right distance from the skin ionises the oxygen and nitrogen in the air to create a small electrical arc, similar to a tiny lightning bolt. When this hits the skin it vaporizes any liquid in the skin at the point of contact, the surrounding skin contracts into the area and tightens around it giving a shrinking and lifting effect.
Even though skin layers get vaporised by the plasma (via heating, fragmentation and vaporization), they do not burn off. They simply flake off at a later date as part of the healing process. The skin fibroblasts are stimulate to produce collagen into the area over the next few weeks giving a further tightening.
How long does it take?
Treatments last approx. 30-45 mins and results are permanent, lasting up to 3 years. Once treated, the skin will develop small crust like spots, which will fall off in 6-7 days post procedure.What will it look like afterwards? Immediately after the treatment, the area will be quite red and slightly swollen. But this will subside within a few days..
- The carbon crusts that form immediately after treatment should not be touched for 6-7 days.
- Avoid applying moisturising creams until they have fallen off.
- Be extra careful not to rub them off and avoid all direct sources of heat. i.e. sun, sunbeds or saunas for 4 weeks.
- Patients may require another treatment, 6-10 weeks later, depending on the severity of the area being treated.
Results typically last for the same amount of time as traditional surgery and you will age as you would otherwise, so your skin will continue to relax as part of the ageing process.
