Fibroblasts treatment is the only cosmetic treatment that uses plasma to eliminate excess skin and tighten at the same time. The term ‘soft surgery’ is used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery without having the use of anaesthetic and scalpel, and with minimal down time. The extremely accurate device creates a plasma arc between the tip of the device and the skin surface to instantly shrink and tighten the targeted area.

Fibroblast Therapy effectively treat:

The appearance of stretch marks and scarring.
Removes smokers lines and wrinkles.
Post surgery scars.
Facelift and neck lift.
Eyelid reconstruction (non-surgical blepharoplasty) including tightening baggy lower eyelids 
and excess upper eyelid skin.
Skin Tags

Lasting results.
No general anaesthetic.
Quick and easy procedure.

How does it work?
During the Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening treatment, an electric arc, also referred to as plasma flash, forms between the tip of the treatment handpiece and the patient’s skin. Through a process called sublimation—which turns a solid directly into gas—the targeted tissues are instantly tightened. This tissue retraction and tightening gives results that are comparable to invasive surgery. The treatment is performed without causing bleeding and more importantly without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.
The first and most immediate effect is delivered to the outer layer of the epidermis where we create external micro-trauma which helps immediately contract and tighten the skin. The next major effect is that the plasma simultaneously penetrates down into the fibroblasts which are contained deeper within the dermis, in doing so, we stimulate accelerated fibroblast division and migration, as well as encouraging natural formation of new blood vessels and the release of growth factors. These growth factors include fibroblast growth factors, platelet-derived endothelial growth factors and cytokines. Cytokines are small proteins that are very important in cell signaling and which affect the behavior of cells around them. They help modulate our immune response, they regulate cell maturation (aging) and quarterback the growth of new cells. They are particularly important in directing our bodies response to the inflammation trauma that we cause because they stimulate both cell repair and new cell reproduction.The inflammatory response which occurs during the healing process also activates white blood cells which engulf and digest cellular debris, foreign substances, microbes, cancer cells, and indeed anything else without proteins that are beneficial for healthy cells.

What are the side effects and risks involved?
Tenderness, redness and swelling are common side effects and are to be expected following the treatment. As the skin starts to heal, itching may occur. After care gel that is included in the price of the treatment, should be used to alleviate the side effects. Other side effects are not limited to, but may include slight redness for a few weeks after the treatment, with a risk of scarring, infection and hyperpigmentation (darker skin) or hypo pigmentation (lighter skin), being rare but possible.

Are there any specific after care tips?
You will be required to stay out of direct sun light during the healing process. Whilst the scabs are still present you won’t be able to get the areas wet such as having a shower, steam room, swimming or sweating from exercising. 

How do I prepare for the procedure?
It is important to have a test patch prior to the treatment. No active sun exposure is important with no active tan being present for the test patch and treatment. We suggest not to apply any cosmetics beforehand, and you should let us know about any recent medical conditions and medications taken. 

Is there anything I should do after the treatment?
We advise that you don’t take a hot shower on the day of the treatment, and to keep the area dry for the duration of the scabs being present. It is advised that you don’t apply make-up to the area for the duration of the scabs, as attempting to remove the makeup at the end of the day, can cause the microscabs to come away from the skin too early and cause scarring. Sun exposure should be avoided for 4 weeks after the treatment, sunblock application is highly recommended for 4 to 6 weeks after the initial treatment.
