What is Fibroblast Skin tightening?
Plasma fibroblast skin tightening is an aesthetic procedure that is an alternative to laser, injections, or surgical therapies to tighten and improve the appearance of skin.
Plasma fibroblast therapy targets fibroblasts. These are collagen– and protein-producing cells in the dermis, the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer.
Fibroblasts play an important role in helping skin wounds heal as well as maintaining skin firmness and tightness.
Plasma fibroblast therapy uses a pen-like device that discharges a high-frequency electric current to small areas of the skin.
The plasma tip doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer. The thermal disruption, or heat damage, from plasma fibroblast therapy:
breaks down proteins in the skin
encourages collagen and tissue regeneration
stimulates fibroblast activity
causes tissue contraction (tightening)
What are the benefits of fibroblast skin tightening?
Plasma fibroblast skin tightening can be used to treat
photo aging, including age spots
wrinkled skin, including the eyelids, neck, jawline, and above the lips
Can also be used as an alternative to lip fillers to make the lips look fuller.
The effects are expected to stimulate fibroblast production for up to 1 year after treatment.
