When the skin is exposed to plasma energy, it goes through the process of sublimation (the action of turning matter from solid, to gas bypassing the liquid stage).
In other words, we are ‘evaporating’ the excess tissue without the application of excess heat and in a very superficial manner. This sublimation effect causes an instant contraction of the tissue, eliminating wrinkles and sagging skin. Stimulating skin regeneration and collagen production. The plasma tip doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer.
What are the benefits of plasma fibroblast therapy?
Plasma fibroblast therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that may be used to treat the following conditions:
- acne scars
- photo aging, including age spots
- seborrheic keratosis
- wrinkled skin, including the eyelids, neck, jawline, around the lips, full face
What’s the procedure like?
While the procedure may vary slightly based on where you’re having the treatment, the basic steps typically include:
- Cleansing the skin and applying a topical anesthetic (numbing) cream. You may need to wait about 30 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect.
- Treating the designated skin area with the plasma pen. The pen will create small arcs of microcurrents that make small scab-like dots on the skin.
- A professional will remove the numbing cream and apply a cooling gel to minimize the tingling and burning sensation whenever possible.
The procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes to perform, depending on area.
Once the procedure is completed, you can expect the small dots to scab over and fall off after about 1 week. Over the next couple of weeks, as your skin heals, it should appear tighter and firmer. Some people may see benefits from one treatment, while others may require three treatments before they see results.
Who’s a good candidate for this procedure?
The best candidates for this procedure are people with mild-to-moderate skin wrinkling concerns.
You shouldn’t receive plasma fibroblast therapy if you:
- are breastfeeding
- are pregnant
- have an allergy to topical anesthetic preparations
- have an infection at the treatment site
- are using isotretinoin for wrinkles or acne
In addition, if you have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring, it’s recommended that you approach plasma fibroblast therapy with caution.
It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider prior to the procedure to discuss your treatment goals and any potential concerns you may have given your overall health condition.
