Skin therapy is an emerging trend in the beauty industry. It has been gaining popularity over the past few years due to its effectiveness and convenience. Talking about skin therapies, we have one of our clinic’s most innovative skin therapies: Plasma Fibroblast Therapy.
There are many ways to enhance your skin. Some of them are natural, while others require surgical procedures. The most traditional way is to improve your skin is through diet and exercise. You can also use natural products like honey, lemon juice, and aloe vera gel.
However, sometimes skincare products and practices don’t necessarily always work. Even if they do work, perhaps they aren’t as effective as you might’ve thought. If you seek to enhance your skin, maybe it’s time for you to consider Plasma Fibroblast therapy.
So what is Plasma Fibroblast therapy all about?
What Is Plasma Fibroblast?
Enhancing your skin through therapies doesn’t necessarily equate to seeking a surgical procedure. These days, thanks to innovations, you can revitalize your skin through lasers, fillers, and injectables. We will use the fourth state of matter for this treatment, which is plasma.
A plasma fibroblast is an innovative approach that helps tighten your skin, assist wound healing, and maintain the skin’s firmness. This therapy explicitly targets the fibroblast in your dermis skin layer, just below the epidermis—the skin’s outermost layer.
How it works is quite simple, plasma fibroblast therapy addresses the main concerns on why the skin quality declines, which is reduced collagen count.
Why The Therapy Needs To Address Collagen Production
Many treatments such as fillers and microneedling frequently tout to restore collagen production to revitalize the skin. So why the fuss about collagen?
You can find collagen anywhere on your skin, and it is essential for maintaining the structural integrity of your skin. However, our collagen production declines as we age, leading to signs of aging and other unwanted skin conditions. The decline in collagen production can be attributed to several factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and stress.
That’s why most non-invasive cosmetic treatments aim to restore your skin’s collagen production. They either inject a formula or create micro-injuries to stimulate collagen production.
How Does Plasma Fibroblast Therapy Stimulate Collagen Production?
Plasma Fibroblast therapy is an innovative approach, and it’s very different from any skincare therapies you’ve previously seen. However, its uniqueness makes the therapy so practical and convenient, and here is how it works.
Why Use Plasma?
The treatment will make use of plasma—the fourth state of matter. It’s pretty distinct from a laser and works differently from a laser.
The reason the therapy uses plasma so that it’s a non-invasive procedure to stimulate collagen production. There’s no need for piercing or opening your skin. The therapy only involves using plasma to touch the skin.
How The Therapy Uses The Plasma
If you are not familiar with what a plasma looks like, an example is a lightning strike. So to promote improved collagen production, the plasma—which resembles mini-lightning strikes—will touch the skin.
Your provider uses a pen-like device to administer the therapy. On the pen’s tip, which is an iron probe, you will see the ionization of atmospheric gas. It’s simply about igniting the air around your skin to create mini-lightning strikes to make contact with the skin.
However, it’s not an erratic strike. Unlike the real lightning strikes, the pen’s tip will contact the skin directly below it, and it doesn’t go all over the place. It’s so precise that we can make dots without affecting other areas.
How Does It Affect The Skin?
As you know, lightning strikes aren’t exactly a friendly event. As you’ve might’ve imagined, what happens during the lightning strike, something does get burned. The heat from the plasma is sure to sear the skin.
So you might be wondering by now, why would you want to sear the skin? Isn’t the point is to revitalize it and not burn it? It seems a counterproductive method to damage the skin when the issue was about fixing it.
However, to encourage more collagen production, we first need to stimulate fibroblast activity. Fibroblasts are the cells that make up the fibrous connective tissue in our bodies, and they are the ones responsible for producing collagen. However, these cells just don’t activate on their own.
To encourage fibroblast activity, we will have to cause some mico-damages on the skin to simulate a wound. That’s precisely why the therapy involves searing the skin.
The burns are not that damaging, and they are mild enough that they will be gone after a week. Your skin will look more promising over the next couple of weeks.
There’s another reason we have to sear the skin: to dismantle the existing faulty collagen framework. That allows room for new collagens to grow and then build a better framework than the previous collagen structure. On top of that, it also tightens the skin, removing wrinkles, skin sagging, and fine lines.
What Are The Benefits of Plasma Fibroblast?
As a summary, here are some benefits you can take from getting the plasma fibroblast therapy.
- Tightened skin, reducing facial sagging
- Removing signs of aging
- Treat Acne Scars
- Rejuvenates The Skin
- Non-invasive and safe therapy
What Is The Therapy Like?
The therapy can differ from clinic to clinic, but generally, here are the steps that you can expect to happen:
- Your provider will start cleaning the face and then applying topical anesthetic creams. The therapy, after all, will have to burn the skin. The topical anesthetic will take around 30 minutes to work.
- Next, they will treat wherever areas need some work. The plasma pen will sear the skin, creating dots all over your face. During the therapy, you will smell your skin burning.
- Finally, they will start removing the topical anesthetic cream and then apply some cooling gels or ice packs to minimize burning sensation and tingling as much as possible. A burn skin isn’t a pleasant feeling.
The entire therapy will only take around 30 to 60 minutes of your time.
If you want to rejuvenate your skin and, in the meantime, fight signs of aging, then plasma fibroblast therapy is a very effective solution for that. Ensure that the right provider helps you with this treatment by getting in touch with us!
