Skin rejuvenation techniques are getting more precise, accurate, and innovative. There are many sophisticated techniques to give you, the client, near-unlimited options. Speaking about the latest techniques, we have the plasma fibroblast procedure at your disposal.
The therapy is relatively new, and it’s a great alternative to fillers, injections, lasers, and surgical treatments. It will significantly improve your skin quality and appearance—all without as much as going under the knife.
What is Plasma Fibroblast Procedure?
Signs of aging, it doesn’t matter who you are, will come knocking on your door. It might even come sooner due to stress, environmental factors, sun damage, etc. You will inevitably experience sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and overall dullness of skin.
However, although inevitable, it doesn’t mean that they have to be prominent. Back then, we have to deal with signs of aging through surgeries, but thankfully, we now have the plasma fibroblast procedure. We can successfully fight back against signs of aging.
The plasma fibroblast procedure is an innovative technique that tightens the skin, maintains its firmness, and can assist wound healing. It’s a technique that targets your dermis, the skin layer just below the outermost layer, which is the epidermis.
Plasma fibroblasts procedure is one of the few treatments that addresses one of the sources of aging: few collagen productions.
The Collagen’s Role For A Youthful Skin
Many cosmetic treatments and products frequently advertise using collagen to keep you young and vibrant, but what does it actually mean?
Collagen is a protein that sustains your skin structure, acting like pillars that hold up the skin layers upright. When there’s ample collagen, the skin looks plump and supple. However, your skin’s collagen production steadily decreases due to aging, sun damage, stress, and other factors.
When there isn’t enough collagen in your skin, creases, also known as wrinkles and fine lines, develop. There isn’t enough collagen that holds up the skin layers, so they droop down. It withers and thins the skin layers.
Why Is It Termed “Plasma”?
Plasma is one of the forms of matter, a superheated gas; this is the same form of matter that you see in our sun or lightning strikes.
The procedure requires plasma so that it can do its work non-invasively. We will use a pen-like device that releases plasma to treat signs of aging for the treatment. Here is how the procedure works.
How Does Plasma Fibroblast Procedure Work?
To promote more vigorous collagen production in your skin again, we will use plasma. By using a pen that releases plasma, you won’t need injections, lasers, or undergoing surgical surgery—no need to miss weeks of workdays for the plasma fibroblast procedure.
Your esthetician or provider will use a plasma pen device for the procedure. This pen uses an iron probe that ionizes atmospheric gas. There’s always air that exists around your skin unless you are in outer space; we will simply ignite the air to create plasma.
The ignition then creates an electrical arc, and we are making a literal microscopic lightning strike on your skin. The plasma pen device is so precise that we can target specific areas without affecting others.
What Happens To The Skin During The Plasma Fibroblast Procedure?
Guess what happens during a lightning strike? Yes, you’ve guessed it right, something is burnt. The heat generated from the lightning strike will sear the skin’s layer. However, it’s a very mild sear, and at the same time, it disrupts the old dermal structure via thermal conduction.
Naturally, you may have the question, why would you want your skin to get burned? It may seem very counterproductive to burn your skin. However, to replace the existing default collagen structure, we need to destroy the existing ones first.
Some of your collagen structure is still there, but they are damaged. We will remove the old ones to make room for collagen production.
That’s not all; since we are searing the skin, we cause micro-damages that simulate a wound. When the body notices wounds, it will jump-start collagen production to rejuvenate the skin. That’s why we refer to it as the fibroblast activity—hence the term plasma fibroblast.
How The Process Works Step-By-Step
Making micro sears on your skin allows the skin to rejuvenate, becoming more youthful and vibrant. Here is how the process works step-by-step.
- We use a plasma pen that sears the skin.
- The heat caused by the plasma burns the skin, causing micro-injuries and dismantling the old clumps of collagen.
- Micro-injuries start-up collagen production, which is the fibroblast activity.
- Collagen then rejuvenates the skin, removing signs of aging.
We remove the old skin proteins and replace them by stimulating new ones to grow. The plasma itself doesn’t heal you, and it will only act as a stimulus; it will be your body’s healing processes that make you look younger.
What Areas Can The Treatment Fix?
Plasma fibroblast procedure is effective in many areas, and it can be used for the following:
- Under eyes
- Crow’s feet
- Brow lift
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Around the mouth
How Long Will The Treatment Take?
Considering how many areas need to be taken care of, it may take between an hour or more than two hours. Applying numbing cream and allowing it to settle will take 30 minutes, and it’s there to help lessen the pain and increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
Your provider will also discuss with you the aftercare treatment, which should also take a while.
How Long Will The Results Last?
Right after the treatment, you should see some burnt scabs in the treated areas, and these will look like small dots. Don’t worry, and these scabs will fall off after a week or so as your skin heals. Over a subsequent couple of weeks, you will start noticing that your skin appears firmer, younger, and more vibrant.
The treatment’s effectiveness differs from person to person, and it might take several more treatments for others before they see the results.
The treatment should last you about 2 to 3 years.
Plasma fibroblast will burn the skin a bit, but that searing will allow new collagen to develop, removing signs of aging and giving you a more vibrant look.
