Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening

Fibroblast  Skin Tightening is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to tighten the skin. It is low risk with minimal downtime and more affordable than surgery.


How Does it work

Plasma skin tightening is relatively new in Canada but has been safely and effectively performed in Europe for many years.  The precision device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between the device tip and skin to release a plasma charge.  This electrical arc, instantly shrinks the skin in the targeted area.  The tissue retraction give results that are comparable to invasive surgery.

Are there any side effects with the Fibroblast treatment

During Fibroblast treatment, tiny dark brown/black spots may appear or there may be an appearance more typical of a burn. Swelling is common and often lasts several days and can be quite significant around the eyes. The area will often be red and warm immediately after the procedure and can be quite tender for a few days. Clients may experience a tingling or burning sensation. Crusting or a scab can develop and it is important to keep this clean, dry and protected from intense sunlight and other sources of UV light to prevent uneven pigmentation as the treated area recovers.


What can I expect after my  Fibroblast treatment

Final results depend on severity of skin laxity or size of lesion. The general condition of the skin and any pre-existing skin or medical problems. Reduction in skin folds and creases appear immediately. The tiny dark brown spots flake off over the following two to three weeks and the skin will heal within a similar period. Swelling is common and can be quite pronounced around the eyes, often worse the following morning and lasting for several days. The area may be tender as it is healing and may scab. It is important to allow any spots or scabs to fall off naturally otherwise scarring or infection may occur. As the treated skin is sublimated, the results often last years or permanently.


What about downtime

You can experience significant swelling in the area treated, particularly in the eye area. The tiny plasma flash causes ‘crusts’ to form on the skin giving the distinctive dotting effect. These on average are gone between 10 days to 1 Month. They may also be covered over to reduce their visibility.
