Fibroblast skin tightening treatment is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that uses a device to rejuvenate skin with energy in the form of plasma. The device is shaped like a pen and discharges an electrical current to small areas of the skin. The pen does not touch the skin and creates a small dot upon contact. It works by ionizing gases in the air to make small holes that affect dermal and epidermal areas to contract and tighten to create a lifting, tightening, and remodeling effect. The targeted tissues sublimate and cause no damage to the deeper skin layers or surrounding areas. It improves facial wrinkles and lines, skin pigmentation changes, and other skin irregularities. By breaking down proteins in the skin, it promotes tissue regeneration, fibroblast activity, and tissue tightening.

Fibroblast treatment areas

The treatment can be applied to most areas of the face and body. A topical anesthetic is applied before the treatment guaranteeing a painless procedure. The procedure typically lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size of the treatment area. Results are noticeable immediately after, while the best changes can be noticed after three to six weeks.

Areas that can be treated by fibroblast include the upper and lower eyelids; skin lesions like warts, moles, skin tags, fibromas, papillomas, xanthelasma, seborrheic keratosis; unwanted wrinkles on the face like frown lines or crow’s feet; skin pigmentation, age spots, sun spots, melasma, chloasma, freckles, and scarring including stretch marks, acne scars, and post-surgical scars.

Fibroblast treatment is a very safe procedure with rare side effects. Inflammation, scarring or minor change in skin pigmentation is very rare. Be sure to closely follow the instructions for post-procedure care. After the procedure, the treated area is red for one to two weeks. Some patients may experience swelling but it should not last more than three to four days. A small crust will form at the sites, but they should not be touched and will fall off naturally.

The average results of fibroblast treatment last from two to four years. The effects are not entirely permanent since it does not stop further aging. Lifestyle factors can prevent the results from lasting as long as possible, such as alcohol consumption, smoking, and prolonged sun exposure.

If you’re interested in plasma fibroblast treatments, talk to a healthcare provider like about what to expect and if the procedure is right for you. Reputable providers can be found through the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery or the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
