What is Plasmapen Fibroblast Skin Tightening?!

18 January

Let’s start with the basics. What is it and what does it do?

We often refer to this treatment as Fibroblast, but fibroblasts are actually cells in the skin that produce collagen and elastin. Most of us are familiar with collagen and possibly even elastin but what do they do? They are responsible for the elasticity and plumpness of the skin. The younger you are, the more collagen and elastin your skin creates giving you nice, bouncy skin. As we age, our skin produces less of these meaning that our skin goes slacker and loses that smooth quality. Nowadays there are tons and tons of creams, ointments, herbs and teas that are supposed to help you produce more collagen and elastin. I’m gonna break that illusion right here and now for you: none of them work. No amount of products can battle against the inevitable fact that time and gravity are not on our side.

Now for the good news!

We live in a day and age where we can use technology and innovation to help us win this battle. Introducing Fibroblast Skin Tightening!
This treatment uses plasma technology to produce tiny plasma flashes over the skin. We place a grid of these plasma flashes in an area to contract the skin and remove excess skin cells. A chemical process occurs called ‘’sublimation’’ where the skin is evaporated at the surface level. The plasma flashes cause minor trauma to the skin, forcing the skin to go into hyper-production of collagen and elastin. This is what we want!

So to put it simply, these plasma flashes are doing two things: removing saggy, droopy skin at the surface and forcing the skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by producing collagen and elastin. And the best part is, the results you get are PERMANENT!! WHAT?! Yep, that’s right. Let that one sink in, I’ll see you soon in the salon.
