What is Plasma Lift Skin Tightening - Fibroblast

Plasma Lift has gained a reputation as the best Non-Surgical procedure in the beauty and cosmetic industry for skin tightening. Plasma skin treatments are Non-Surgical, and can be used for eye lift, loose tummy skin tightening, skin tag removal, mole removal, sun and age spot removal, acne scar damage, smokers lines on the upper and lower lips, diminish stretch marks, tightening of the loose skin on the neck and cheeks, crows feet, and reduction of fine lines.  Plasma is the fourth state of matter.  It is gas that has been energized to the point that some of the electrons break free, but travel within their nucleus.

How does it work and is it Safe?

The Fibroblasts are the collagen producing cells in the skin.  Fibroblast treatment is performed with a device called a Plasma Pen which looks similar to a pen that is used to produce plasma waves.  The waves are directed as tiny light spots along the wrinkle lines.  The tip of the pen never touches the skin (and the needle like attachment is disposable and one time use). The pen is held above the skin and a tiny plasma arc connects the tip of the device to the surface of the dermis.
Using plasma waves, the old collagen is removed by Sublimation (Evaporation), and fibroblasts are stimulated to produce new collagen. The targeted skin contracts and is essentially eliminated without any cutting, which results in the tightening and shrinking of the targeted skin.   This advanced procedure helps to revive natural levels of the Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Fibronectin needed for fresh youthful skin.   A series of tiny brown spots are strategically placed to attain the desired result. The skin around the dot tightens instantly, pulling the cells closer together. No over tightening will occur. The evaporated old collagen is seen as tiny brown scabs on the treated area. The tiny "microdot", brown scab or protective crust, or carbon crust on the surface will fall off on their own in approx.  3-7 days.
It is very Safe, low-risk, and highly effective.  As with most cosmetic treatments, a consultation with an experienced, trained practitioner prior to service, as well as a strict aftercare routine, is required to promote proper healing and to help you achieve the maximum results.

How fast will I see results?

Results are immediate, however as the deepest layers of the skin continue to heal over a 6-8 week period, results will improve over time, with most clients starting to see their best results around 4 weeks post-treatment.

How many treatments are needed for skin tightening?

It varies per client, however, most clients only require an average of 1-3 treatments depending on how much skin needs tightening and how well the client's skin responds to the treatment.  Deep wrinkles and expression lines usually require touch-ups. Most clients will see fairly significant results after the first treatment, and if additional treatments are required, they will be done at 8 weeks.

What to expect and recovery?

Fibroblast treatment is referred to as "soft surgery" because it delivers similar results as cosmetic surgery without the risk, cost, or recovery time.  It is non-invasive and pain is minimal.  Numbing agent is applied for the client's comfort, and the entire procedure lasts approximately 30-60 minutes or more for larger areas.  As the plasma flash comes into contact with the skin, it leaves a tiny dot on the skin's surface, referred to as "carbon crusts". They are quite small and will usually fall off within 3-7 days after the treatment, revealing new pink skin beneath.  Most clients will notice some  swelling and tenderness for about 3-5 days post-treatment, particularly around the eyelids as they are most sensitive.  After that period, most clients will notice that the majority of the swelling has gone down, however, the deepest layers of the skin will still be healing for up to 8 weeks while collagen and elastin fibres are replenishing.

How long will it last?

Plasma Skin Tightening is often called "Soft Surgery" because it removes excess skin without surgical invasion. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures the effect of plasma treatments are not entirely permanent as it does not stop future aging.  However, the positives results can last for years, depending on the area, client, and quality of aftercare.  Clients will be provided with aftercare instructions on factors that will affect the longevity of their treatment, such as sun exposure, alcohol consumption, and smoking.  As with most cosmetic and/or surgical procedures, Fibroblast treatments may require follow-up appointments and treatments.

Are Facial Expressions affected by Plasma Lift?

Unlike Botox which paralyses the underlying muscle to remove the face wrinkles and expression lines.  Plasma Lift will keep your facial expressions normal, which adds to the beauty of the results.  There is no risk of over tightening and over correction, which may happen with other surgical procedures.

Is the treatment painful?

Plasma lift is a no cut, no injection, and no laser procedure so there is minimal discomfort.  However, Pain is subjective.  Some clients report some discomfort and others report none at all.   A mild tingling may be felt during the procdeure, but a very effective Health Canada Approved topical anesthetic is used to help alleviate any discomfort.
