People of all ages, shapes, and sizes have loose skin. Although it is common, having sagging skin can cause embarrassment and discomfort. IN the past, the only way to deal with sagging skin was through invasive surgical procedures. Now you have the option of Fibroblast Therapy! This revolutionary new skin tightening procedure can create similar effects as surgical options without ever having to under the knife.
You’re unfamiliar with the term Fibroblast, these are the collagen and protein producing cells in the dermis – the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer. Fibroblasts play an important role in helping skin wounds heal as well as maintaining skin firmness and tightness.
How does Fibroblast Therapy work?
Your esthetician uses an electric handheld device called a plasma Fibroblast pen for the procedure. This pen uses a metal probe to ionize atmospheric gas between its tip and the gasses that the skin naturally emits. This forms a plasma charge. The electrical arc is then created, shrinking the targeted skin. Your tissues will retract and tighten, providing you with a more youthful-looking appearance. As your skin continues to heal and repair post-treatment, your skin elasticity will continue to improve and tighten.
What are the benefits of Fibroblast Therapy?
Plasma fibroblast therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that may be used to treat skin conditions such as acne scars, age spots, seborrheic keratosis, and wrinkled skin.
Cosmetic specials may also use plasma fibroblast therapy as an alternative to lip fillers to make the lips look fuller.
Are there any side effects of Fibroblast Therapy?
While plasma fibroblast therapy can offer results, they are not likely to be as dramatic as a surgical procedure. Examples of side effects include redness, swelling, mild hypopigmentation, mild hyperpigmentation, skin peeling and crusting. When you consider that you are getting a skin tightening solution without the need for dangerous surgery, these side effects are much easier to swallow.
Will I see results from Fibroblast Therapy right away?
You will notice some results immediately after your appointment. As cell turnover occurs and the product of collagen increase, you will notice further changes to your skin. You should expect to see the full results of your treatment around three months. Fibroblast procedure results typically last for three years.
