Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening For Beautiful Skin
What is Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening?
Plasma Fibroblast is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure. It is a revolutionary way to tighten skin, while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is considered “soft surgery”, because unlike some other skin tightening cosmetic procedures, no scalpels or other surgical instruments are used. Instead, it uses a plasma device (plasma pen) to trigger a reaction and reduce the volume of excess skin.
This non-surgical skin treatment procedure has been safely and effectively used in Europe for many years, and is now gaining popularity throughout the USA.
Besides being a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin, fibroblast skin tightening is much less expensive than surgical methods.
Fibroblast Skin Tightening is the only non-surgical procedure to reduce the volume of excess skin.
How Does The Fibroblast Plasma Pen Work?
A ‘Plasma Pen’ (plasma device) is used to create and electrical discharge to the skin and deliver tiny arcs of plasma. The precise flashes of plasma trigger natural healing in the epidermal and dermal layers to promote new collagen growth and rejuvenate the skin’s tone and texture with long lasting results.
The plasma pen is FDA approved to perform fibroblast therapy in order to stimulate production of collagen in the skin.
What Does Plasma Fibroblast Treat?
Fibroblast is used to treat a number of skin imperfections, especially around the eye area, including:
- Saggy skin around eyes – eyelid tightening
- Skin tags and sunspots
- Acne scars
- Loose stomach skin post pregnancy
- Wrinkles and lines around the mouth
- Excess, sagging skin on neck / jowls
- Loose skin under arms
- Lines on the forehead
- Necklines (turkey neck)
Fibroblast Skin Tightening with the Plasma Pen is typically done on the face and neck. It can also be used on the hands, abdomen or other areas where the skin is losing elasticity.
What is a Fibroblast Treatment Like?
Treatment begins with an initial consultation to discuss your rejuvenation goals and expectations.
Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area being treated. The service concludes with the application of a post-treatment cream to aid in healing.
Procedure time can take between 30 and 120 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Does it hurt?
The plasma pen treatment is relatively painless, but skin sensitivity may occur and is normal for up to three days post treatment. Some peeling and mild redness may be experienced.
How long is the downtime?
You may experience some mild swelling for the first few days and carbon crusts (scabs) that form due to the plasma pen. It is very important to avoid the sun for the first week or so, while your skin is healing. If you need to be out in the sun, wear a hat that will shade the entire area you received the treatment. After the tiny scabs shed off, you’ll want to minimize the risk of hyper-pigmentation and apply SPF 60+. Remember, the skin that appears is basically new skin. Think of a newborn baby’s skin and treat your skin accordingly.
Results start to show immediately and continue to improve in the following weeks. Smoother, fresher, youthful looking skin is revealed as cell turnover occurs and collagen production increases, giving your skin the support structure it needs to lift and tighten. Clients can expect to see full results at 12 weeks of natural collagen building following a single Fibroblast treatment.
How long do the results of Fibroblast last?
Since the skin volume is actually reduced during the treatment, the effects typically last three years! This is similar to what you would see with an invasive procedure. (See the advantages below)

Possible Side Effects
Because Fibroblast is a non-surgical procedure, it has been shown to be a safe treatment. Still, most people are likely to experience minor side effects, including:
- Small, dry spots (scabs), which will naturally lift off as the new skin appears underneath
- Mild swelling during the first few days
