Fibroblast aka Plasma Pen

Plasma Pen is a trademarked device that can be used to significantly tighten, lift, resurface, and regenerate practically any area of the skin. the Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into  nitrogen and transmits that in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as fibroblasting.

Fibroblasting produces excellent results for any area of the body, particularly the face and neck regions.

  • Accordion lines – the lines that form outside of the mouth when you smile

  • Acne scars – improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks and scars

  • Crow’s feet around eyes

  • Forehead lines

  • Jowl / jawline tightening

  • Marionette lines – The creases or folds that run vertically from the corners of the mouth down to the chin

  • Nasolabial folds / smile lines – The folds that run from the sides of your nose down to the edge of your mouth

  • Necklines, turkey neck

  • Smoker’s lines – those vertical wrinkles also known as lipstick lines around the mouth

  • Stretchmarks

  • Upper and lower eyelids – Bags and hoods

Fibroblast results are impressive but should not be proposed as an alternative to surgery in cases of moderate to severe skin laxity. Only surgery can achieve these kinds of results. You will typically see immediate tightening along with cumulative improvements over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin. In some cases it may require more than one session depending on the desired results.

Fibroblasting can be mildly to moderately uncomfortable. Everyone’s pain level is different and some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. Numbing cream is helpful in reducing the discomfort during treatment.

Fibroblasting is a relatively safe treatment, particularly when compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures, However, no procedure is without risks and it’s important to review and understand the risks

  • Swelling and bruising

  • Scabbing and crusting

  • Skin discoloration

  • Scarring

There IS downtime. “Downtime” is very subjective. What you think “looks bad” or is “uncomfortable” can be very different from someone else’s perception. If you are comparing it to cosmetic surgery, then no, the downtime is minimal. If you are comparing it to a light chemical peel where no one can tell you did anything and you are just a bit flaky everywhere, then no.

  • Redness, swelling and scabbing in the treatment area

  • Average of 8 days downtime on the face and neck areas

  • Average of 10 to 14 days on the body, depending on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment

  • Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 3

  • After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form.

  • Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck)

Please be aware that the days indicated are simply guidelines for average healing time. Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the after care protocol: no drinking alcohol, no smoking and no picking/scrubbing. If your health is compromised in any way, this can also extend your healing time and negatively affect your results.
