This fantastic treatment tightens and shrinks away excess skin by way of a non-invasive and non-surgical method.
This breakthrough method is quickly becoming the most popular way of achieving permanent results while maintaining a natural look. It achieves amazing results for hooded eyelids, crow’s feet, smokers’ lines, under-eye bags, wrinkles and more.
This treatment works by doing two things: removing excess skin and producing new collagen and elastin. We use a hand held device with a small probe to create tiny plasma flashes over the skin. The skin instantly tightens when a grid of these plasma flashes are made. Loose and excess skin is targeted and removed. A tiny carbon crust is formed over the area and starts to heal the skin. In the deeper layers of the skin, we have cells called fibroblasts. These are responsible for producing collagen and elastin. Their job is to make sure our skin is strong, bouncy and tight. As we age, our skin makes less and less of them. That’s why we get lines, wrinkles and loose skin! The plasma flashes not only remove excess skin, but they are able to penetrate deep into the skin and wake up our fibroblast cells. They tell the cells to go and make lots of collagen and elastin because we’ve caused minor trauma to the area. The result: no more unwanted droopy skin and smoothing of the lines and wrinkles! Not only that, but we can actually improve the appearance of scar tissue and stretch marks a well!
Improvement can sometimes be instantly seen but the final result will be visible after 10-12 weeks. There is no cutting of the skin, nothing being injected and your results last 2-4 years! This is an incredible, revolutionary alternative to injectables or surgery.
•Completely non-surgical and non-invasive with results similar to having had a surgical skin tightening treatment.
•Removal of excess and droopy skin.
•Treats crepey lines and wrinkles.
•Brighter, more even skin tone and texture.
•Preventing further aging of the skin by the huge boost of collagen and elastin deep in the skin.
You can go straight back to work or your normal daily routine if you wish! There can be some swelling in the treated area, but this goes away between 2-7 days. The plasma flashes produce tiny brown ‘carbon crusts’ that are temporary. These will fall off or disappear after 5-7 days. We will give you some tinted aftercare gel to help hide the small carbon crusts if necessary.
In short, Plasmapen Fibroblast skin tightening is a treatment where we use ‘plasma flashes’ to remove excess skin cells that cause droopiness and sagging of the skin. Plasma is a specific form of electrical energy that basically blanches away the loose skin cells on the surface of the skin.
The plasma flashes also send messages to the skin to produce new, healthy skin cells in the area so you get a brighter and healthier complexion. We use a Plasmapen device to create these plasma flashes in a safe and controlled manner, making sure that you are getting the best quality treatment possible.
Because we are causing minor trauma to the area, your skin will respond by producing a lot of collagen and elastin (which is what we want). These two proteins are responsible for making the skin healthy, bouncy and smooth.
So, to sum it up the treatment does the following:
1. Removes excess and droopy skin.
2. The deeper layers of the skin produce a lot of collagen and elastin to make it smooth and healthy again.
3. New skin cells are produced that improve your complexion.
4. Prevents further aging of the skin due to the boost in collagen and elastin.
These results and benefits last 2-4 years, sometimes a lot longer!
What my clients and I love about the Plasmapen Fibroblast treatment is that it delivers amazing, but natural looking results. It is often referred to as the best non-surgical alternative. There is no cutting of the skin, no injections or creams. This as a treatment that can give similar results to surgical treatment or injectables, while at the same time improving the quality of your skin. Which is what other treatments can’t do!
There is no other non-surgical treatment on the market that can induce collagen and elastin, visibly tighten the skin and remove excess skin all in one!
Some people instantly see the results of their treatment. This is not always the case, though it also doesn’t mean the treatment hasn’t worked for you! Most people see their skin improve over the weeks following treatment. It’s a slow and gradual process, giving very natural looking results. You should also see a visible improvement in the quality of your skin, meaning it will be smoother and more even toned. There is no risk of over-lifting the skin. You should also see an improvement in the appearance of crepey lines and wrinkles and a lifting of the skin.
Depending on the area you want treated and how much elasticity is lost, most people need more than one session to achieve the results they want. Some are perfectly happy after one treatment, others want more lifting and tightening. I always leave it up to your discretion as to what you are happy with. I will never tell you that you need more treatments but I will advise you on your options if you have certain wishes or expectations.
It’s impossible to say exactly how many sessions you will need to get the results you want, but be prepared that you might need more than one. I usually recommend a course of 3 treatments as you will absolutely achieve better results. The reason is that the results of this treatment are cumulative. We’re building on top of the work that’s already done and so the results will be exponential.
After completing your consultation and consent forms, we will take your before pictures. These are always necessary for insurance purposes. We will then apply numbing cream to the treated area so that you are more comfortable. Once the area is sufficiently numb, we will start the treatment. Depending on the area, it is a very fast procedure. One area takes about 10-15 minutes. Full face and neck can take a while longer. Treatment time will be discussed during the consultation.
After the treatment, we will take your after pictures and give you your aftercare advice.
You must follow this advice or you put yourself at risk of negative side effects.
Plasmapen Fibroblast Skin Tightening treatments are not suitable for everyone. Unfortunately, only light- to medium skin toned people can have this treatment done safely. People who use a lot of sunbeds regularly or do a lot of active tanning, are also not suitable. This is because the treatment makes your skin more sensitive to UV rays. Safety is our number one priority so if we feel that you are not suitable for the treatment, it will not be carried out.
don’t hesitate to get in touch! I love speaking to my clients and helping them reach an informed decision. I will always do my best to give honest advice and help in any way I can.
