Fibroblasting Skin Tightening Treatment
Plasma Pen Treatment in Tulsa and Broken Arrow, OK
Plasma pen skin tightening or fibroblasting is the latest non-surgical cosmetic procedure to help you with your wrinkles, loss of collagen, and sagging skin. Aging causes your skin to thin, produce less collagen and lose elasticity. These factors produce sagging and wrinkling of the skin especially around the eyes and mouth.
Plasma pen skin tightening, also known as fibroblasting, fibroblast skin treatment, or plasma lift, is a non-surgical procedure or skin tightening treatment that targets a wide variety of skin conditions including loss of elasticity, sagging and wrinkles that have been traditionally treated with dermal fillers or plastic surgery.
How does the plasma pen work?
The plasma pen significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces, and regenerates practically any area of the skin.
The plasma pen uses electrical energy to convert nitrogen into plasma energy and then rapidly transfers that plasma energy to the skin surface. This results in a small disruption of the deeper skin or dermis where the majority of the skin’s fibroblasts lie. The result is a marked contraction of the skin which tightens wrinkles.
The plasma pen causes stimulation of your skin’s fibroblasts and in turn the fibroblasts make more collagen. This results in strengthening of the skin’s dense connective tissues which in turn minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and micro-furrows, as well as improving the elasticity, suppleness and hydration of our skin.
This is why the treatment is also known as fibroblasting.
You will typically see immediate tightening and even better, there is continued improvement over the next three months in the appearance of saggy skin as more fibroblasts and collagen develop. Results typically last around 2 to 3 years with good post care and lifestyle choices.
In some cases it may require more than one session depending on the desired results.
Is the procedure painful?
Plasma Fibroblasting is 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.
What are the risks of plasma pen treatment?
No procedure is without risks and it’s important to understand there are risks to fibroblasting or a plasma pen treatment. The risks include:
Swelling and bruising
Scabbing and crusting
What downtime can I expect after the treatment?
The normal downtime is an average of:
5 to 8 days on the face and neck areas.
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 tiny scabs form.
Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck).
Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the recommended after care protocol especially no smoking and no picking/scrubbing.
What skin types are good for a plasma pen treatment?
Light or white skin types are suited for fibroblasting treatment. Darker skin tones (African American, African, Latin, Native American, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian ancestry and people of mixed ethnicities) are not good candidates for the fibroblasting.
