Plasma Fibroblast Therapy
Let’s start with the obvious question:
What’s fibroblast therapy?
Simply put, plasma fibroblast therapy is a non-surgical procedure, usually, a form of trzeatment meant to tighten the skin. This aesthetic procedure may be used as an alternative to laser as well as injections.
The plasma fibroblast therapy usually targets the fibroblasts – cells in the dermis – that play a crucial role in the healing of skin wounds and maintaining the firmness of the skin.
Maybe you’re wondering, how is this done? Let’s find out. Or shall we? The plasma fibroblast therapy is done using a pen-like device that emits an electric current of high frequency to smaller areas of the skin. Note that the plasma tip doesn’t come into direct contact with the skin, however, it releases some current targeted to an area above the skin.
According to an article published in the PMFA journal in 2019, the thermal disruption resulting from plasma fibroblast therapy impacts as follows:
It encourages and enhances tissue regeneration.
Tightens the skin, by causing tissue contraction.
Causes the break down of proteins found in the skin.
Stimulates the activities of the fibroblasts.
And according to healthcare experts, this approach may also be referred to as skin resurfacing. So, you can’t be wrong whenever you refer to it this way.
Since plasma fibroblast therapy is a popular procedure, it must have a couple of benefits it offers. Or what is it that people find attractive or helpful in it? And this brings us to the question:
What benefits are obtained from plasma fibroblast therapy?
This non-surgical treatment – plasma fibroblast therapy- can be used to treat any of the following conditions:
Wrinkled skin for example around the jaws and neck.
However, one may question if this therapy is effective. For clarity, if it’s done properly, in a controlled environment, it offers the following benefits:
Improves the texture of the skin.
Offers moderate skin tightening effects
Changes the skin facial contour.
Since plasma fibroblast therapy is a new aesthetic procedure, there haven’t been much studies and discoveries about it. But we can still find out how it is done.
The Procedure for Plasma Fibroblast Therapy
Here are typical steps of how the procedure is carried out, though the steps may depend on where you’re having it done:
Skin cleansing and application of a topical anaesthetic cream. The cream is effective after 30 minutes.
The target area is treated with the plasma pen. The pen creates small microcurrent arc, that makes dots on the skin.
The expert performing the procedure then removes the numbing cream, before applying a cooling gel to minimize the burning sensation.
This procedure usually takes roughly 30 to 60 minutes to be completed.
After the procedure is done, the small dots usually fall off after about a week. From here, as time goes by and the skin heals, it should appear firmer and tighter.
Depending on an individual, one may receive the benefits from one treatment, while others may need at least three treatments to see the results.
