Fibroblast is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to reduce the volume of excess skin. The treatment is low risk, has minimal downtime and is more affordable than surgery.

The term “Soft Surgery” is used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery, with no scalpel, stitches or bandages and minimal downtime. A minimally invasive procedure with much lower risk and at a more affordable price than actual surgery.

How does fibroblast treatment work?

Fibroblast is a relatively new innovation in the beauty industry, the extremely accurate hand held device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the natural gasses emitted from our skin, to form a plasma charge. A small electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissues retract and tighten giving you more youthful looking skin. An electrical arc is then created, shrinking the targeted skin. Your tissues will retract and tighten, providing you with a more youthful-looking appearance. Skin elasticity and tightening will continue to improve as time goes on post-treatment, and your skin continues to heal and repair.

What is it used to treat?

Eyelid Tightening, including under eyes and excess upper eyelid skin

Bunny lines and frown lines

Tightening loose stomach skin after pregnancy

Lines and wrinkles around the mouth

Jowls and Neck Tightening

How long does it last?

As Fibroblast is more than a simple tightening treatment (skin volume is actually reduced), the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of fibroblast are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further ageing, but the positive results should last years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after 8 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin's laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Clients may see results instantly but the skin continues to improve over the course of the following
12 weeks. 2- 3 further treatments may be recommended to get desired results, and appointments are spacedout by at least 12 weeks.

Are there any side effects and risks?

Fibroblast has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature when done by a fully certified technician. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment. There will be small carbon crusts (little polkadots) in the treated area that will last 7-10 days before naturally lifting, revealing new pink skin beneath. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, it is important that you follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your technician.

What do I need to do on the treatment day?

On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area. You may take an anti-histamine 60 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.

What happens during the procedure?

​A numbing agent is applied to the area and left to take effect.. When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the fibroblast tip, spaced closely together. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating. Treatment time is dependant on the size of the area.

 

Immediately after treatment the area may be red and mildly swollen with small carbon crusts (spots). You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days. The carbon crusts will lift within 5 -14 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results gradually improve over the course of the following 8-12 weeks.

Following treatment you will be given thorough aftercare instructions; a leaflet to ensure that you see the best results, a saline solution will be given to you for cleaning the area. In the 2 weeks following treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) the area treated must be kept completely dry, once the carbon crusts have healed and fallen off a make up concealer can be used to cover up any redness until completely healed.
