Plasma Fibroblast

Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive procedure that produces exceptional tightening of the skin and regeneration of collagen without surgery. Plasma Pen opens the door to a revolutionary soft surgery approach that brings an end to invasive skin treatments, offers faster recovery time and improves the appearance of skin without going under the knife. Additionally, it can be used to remove sunspots, moles and skin tags. Using a plasma pen with a disposable probe, sublimation of micro-columns of skin can be achieved.

Essentially the skin is heated and vaporized, producing a tightening effect and stimulating fibroblasts within the dermal layer of the skin. Healthy fibroblasts repair the skin’s damaged collagen with white blood cells called macrophages, keeping wrinkles and sagging skin at bay. Creating a controlled micro-trauma triggers the skin’s fibroblasts to repair the wound, which creates a reduction in wrinkles and other surface irregularities. The Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening treatment is extremely effective in skin tightening because the volume of skin is reduced when the plasma vaporizes the section of skin.

The results are only comparable to plastic surgery, and in most areas, are permanent. To put the prices into perspective, the cost of Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is $1,800 – $2,500 and a facelift is $7,200 – $14,000. This soft surgery procedure produces results that last nearly as long as traditional surgery, but without worrisome side effects and risks. Of course, the aging process is continual, so no aesthetic treatment produces permanent results. However, many have experienced very good outcomes with this tightening treatment with results that should last for years.

How many Plasma Fibroblast treatments are required for optimal results? It depends on the state of the skin and the desired degree of correction. Clients are often satisfied after only one treatment if the wrinkles are not very deep. Deeper wrinkles and decreased skin elasticity require more than one treatment for desired results. Due to the simplicity of the procedure and the affordable price, clients may opt for two or even three treatments to achieve the perfect result. Areas like worry lines in between the eyebrows or smile lines will recur because muscles are stronger than the skin. These areas can still be treated but may require touchups to maintain desired result.


The Fibroblast plasma pen works by releasing a small electrical charge with plasma gas through a small needle like probe. The probe at no time is invading the skin. The electrical charge causes a heated coagulation of the skin surface. Think of it as a tiny lightning bolt. When the plasma arc hits the skin, it vaporizes any liquid in the skin at the point of contact. The heat is not spread in any other area of the skin except for the area being treated. The surrounding skin contracts into the area and tightens. This gives a shrinking and lifting known as sublimation. The fibroblast cells react to the “superficial trauma” to the epidermal layers and immediately starts to tighten. In the next few weeks of healing collagen is triggered to speed up and renew the skin.


Once completed the area of the skin where you placed your plasma pen will be covered in carbon crusts or scabs. Those dots are tiny blood clots with a small scab over the top, which means that unlike fractional CO2 laser, the tissue is completed closed. This prevents the likelihood of infection risks. The feeling is comparable to a moderate sunburn and may feel irritated for a couple of hours. Make sure that you are aware of the possibility of swelling increasing in the hours immediately after the procedure and may last for up to 3 days.

Sensitive areas such as around the eye or upper lip will have pronounced swelling and inflammation. You can expect the carbon crusts or scabs to heal and fall off anywhere from 5 to 12 days after the session. The area will continue to improve in appearance over the following 2 months.

Before Treatment

  • Use SPF 30 and above for 2 weeks prior and avoid sun tanning or spray tanning on treatment area
  • Avoid alcohol, smoking and blood thinning medications/supplements 3 days prior to session as these have negative effects on collagen formation.

After Treatment

Must not pick at scabs or scrub them!

This can lead to infection, scarring and hyperpigmentation. Weeping at the treatment site is simply liquid plasma oozing from the scab area and is a natural wound healing response. The oozing will subside on its own and the crusts will flake off after a few days. Natural moisturizers or hyaluronic acid are great choices for keeping the skin hydrated. Hyaluronic acid can attract 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent hydrator. Moisture is the key to proper healing and enhanced outcomes.
