Fibroblast is an innovative treatment with results which you would normally only expect after surgery but there are no scalpels and no suturing involved. The treated area is sublimated (converted directly to vapour) using the plasma beam without damage to the deep skin or muscle.
The treatment consists of many plasma arc dots spaced closely together and most areas of the face and body can be treated. The procedure normally takes 30 – 60 minutes to perform. Results are seen instantly although the best appearance is seen after 3 – 6 weeks. 1 – 3 treatments at 6 weekly intervals are recommended to give the results similar to a surgical procedure.
– Non-surgical blepharoplasty – skin tightening of saggy upper and lower eyelids
– Skin lesions such as moles, skin tags, fibromas, warts, papillomas and xanthelasma, seborrheic keratosis
-Unwanted wrinkles on face – frown lines, crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, neck lines etc.
– Skin pigmentation, age spots on face or hands, sun spots, melasma, chloasma, freckles
– Scarring including stretch marks, acne scars and post-surgical scars.
Plasma eyelid lift is the latest technology to treat upper eyelid without surgery. Plasma, in this case, refers to a high-energy state where electrons become free from their respective atoms. It does not refer to the plasma in blood.
During this treatment, local anaesthetic is injected along the length of the eyebrows and this numbs the area of the forehead and eyelid above and below this area. A plasma-generating device is then used to direct dots of energy at the skin of the eyelid and also of a section of the forehead resulting in an oblique ‘stripe’ from the mid to outer brow up towards the hairline.
Plasma eyelid lift procedure will take from half an hour to 1 hour.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A PLASMA TREATMENT?
After the procedure, you will feel numb due to the local anaesthetic for ½-1hr.
There may be some warmth/heat felt. The area will be red with dot scabs – for most, this area will include most, but not all, of the upper eyelid and an oblique stripe from the mid to outer brow up to near the hairline. The area will feel tight at times.
You will be given a covering cream to use on the area which will help to disguise the underlying redness. This may be reapplied as needed. It contains sunscreen.
The scabs will come away over some days, usually within a week or so. The scabs must NOT be picked or scratched off as this may create a wound. Allow them to come away of their own accord.
During the procedure tiny plasma flash also referred as an electrical arc is being discharged from the tip of the Fibroblast handpiece. The tool itself never touches the skin however plasma flash creates a tiny dot upon the contact. There is no cuts, no blood. This innovative technology uses sublimation process, turning solid directly to gas to tighten skin tissue.
Effects are noticeable right away. Full results become visible after 2-4 weeks! Patient can resume regular activities within a few days.
Fibroblast only requires a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort during procedure. Carbon crusts, a tiny superficial dots which form directly on the skin are part of normal healing process. Correctly taken care of, they will fall off 5-7 days after treatment.
Fine lines, pigmentation is present with loss of skin tone. Client is 50 years of age.
As one can see that client has had FIBROBLAST PLASMA LIFT TREATMENT, one hour previous . Minor swelling can be seen along with a bit of a " heat sensation". Cool cloth later in the evening was recommended is discomfort was present. No creams, no hot showers, dry healing is recommended. Possible colloidal silver or arnica for swelling.
There is a noticable change in the texture of the skin, fine lines are reduced significantly. Client is extremely happy with her results just after one treatment session. She will begin her second treatment soon.
