Understanding the procedure and benefits
Fibroblast treatment has many different titles: Plasma Fibroblast skin tightening, Fibroblast wrinkle remover, Fibroblast Plasma Lift, Fibroblast mole remover, etc. They all refer to the same treatment administered with the plasma pen and convey the versatility of this revolutionary technology.
Fibroblast has been widely utilised in Europe; however it has only recently reached the Australian aesthetic market. Despite being extremely safe and pain-free, the treatment gives results that could only be achieved with a surgical procedure.
How does Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening work?
Fibroblast Skin Tightening is performed using a plasma pen and under topical anaesthetic cream. An electrical arc is discharged from the plasma pen and onto the treatment area without the pen needle actually touching the skin. At the multiple places on the treated area where the plasma pen is used, the arc discharge leaves micro craters in the skin which heal in the form of carbon dots. The skin around the dots naturally shrinks to heal the micro craters which cause the skin stretching effect.
After about a week the scabs from the dots will fall off revealing multiple pink dots in their stead which will gradually fade over time. This is no cause to be concerned, and it is the normal recovery process. The dots will disappear completely by themselves within one or two months, exact healing times vary from person to person.
Depending on the original skin condition, more than one treatment of Fibroblast may be needed to achieve the desired result. At a personal consultation your skin practitioner will be able to advise you on the optimal number of treatments you may require. Most clients will be satisfied after a single treatment; however, up to 3 consecutive treatments may be performed on the same area to achieve very dramatic results even on an aged skin.
After your dot scabs will fall off, you will immediately notice an improvement in the treated area. However, complete results from Plasma Fibroblast skin tightening treatment usually take between 4 to 8 weeks. The best part is that unlike other commonly used treatment options like muscle relaxants and Fillers, Fibroblast skin tightening procedure is an all-natural treatment that brings about permanent results. The treatment will not stop your natural ageing process of course, but your skin will stay smooth and tight till future natural wrinkle formation or sagging of the skin occurs over the coming years. Good news is the Fibroblast treatment can be repeated at this point.
What you should know:
Fibroblast skin tightening, when performed correctly, is one of the best non-surgical skin treatments in the aesthetic industry to date. However, the treatment has to be performed by a certified skilled skin practitioner not only to be effective but also to be safe. The Plasma Pen used for the treatment should be manufactured by a reputable medical company; TGA listed and come with associated paperwork and certifications. If you are considering Fibroblast treatment – be sure to select an experienced practitioner!
Best areas for fibroblast skin tightening:
Fibroblast skin tightening can be performed virtually anywhere on the body, on large and small areas alike. You can have a full-face lift, improve hooded eyes, improve the C-section scar and so on. Fibroblast works best on areas with loose or wrinkled skin. Generally speaking, the thinner the skin is in the treated area, the more effective the treatment results will be, therefore eyelids and under eye areas show the most prominent results after a single Fibroblast session.
Most commonly requested areas:
- Upper Eye Lids
- Under Eye Bags
- Crow’s Feet
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial lines (Smile lines)
- Glabellas (Frown Lines)
- Neck Lift
- Jaw Lift
- Stretch marks
- C-section scars
- Loose belly skin
- Acne scarring
- Mole removal
- Cheek Lift
How Much Does It Cost?
Pricing for Fibroblast, just like any other more sophisticated treatment, will mainly vary based on the qualifications of the provider you choose and the area in which the clinic is located. One thing is sure – Fibroblast skin tightening pricing is much more affordable than surgery. For example, one of the most receptive areas to the treatment is upper lids. The eyelid surgery costs upwards of $6,000 accompanied by several weeks of recovery. In comparison one treatment of Fibroblast skin tightening on the upper lids costs between $950-$1200, it will produce comparable results to the eyelid surgery with a week of soft recovery. Keep in mind most patients will be satisfied with one treatment, however even if 2 or 3 treatments are performed it will still be more affordable.
Another way to look at a cost of Fibroblast wrinkle remover is to compare it to filler injectables which are often used to plump back the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, Fibroblast Plasma Lift is a permanent solution whereas filler injectables are a temporary one. Once you decide to have Fibroblast treatment done you won’t need another one until the natural ageing process occurs to your skin which will likely take years. Taking that into consideration, one can quickly realise that spending every 6 months to 1 year on filler injectables will add up to an enormous amount over time. Therefore, from this point of view Fibroblast procedure is a yet again a more cost effective alternative and better outcome.
