Plasma skin tightening is relatively new in North America, but has been safely and effectively performed in Europe for many years. Plasma Fibroblast has increased in popularity due to its many advantages over surgery. There is little downtime 3-7 days depending on individual. Plus it's less expensive, no cutting of the skin and no stitches and no weeks of recovery. Plasma Fibroblast is virtually painless and doesn't require anesthesia, this means you can return to work even sooner. Aftercare will be given to patient end of treatment.
The extremely accurate hand-held device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the natural gases emitted from our skin, to form a plasma charge. A small electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissues retract and tighten giving you more youthful looking skin.
Because Fibroblast is more than a simple tightening treatment (skin volume is actually reduced), the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of Fibroblast are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further aging, but the positive results should last years, depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after eight weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after eight weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.
