What is Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening?
Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening is a cosmetic treatment that uses plasma, an ionized gas, to non-surgically tighten skin. A relatively new innovation in the beauty industry in North America, Fibroblast Skin Tightening has been used for a number of years in Europe. This minimally invasive procedure is often described as “soft surgery” as the treatment delivers amazing results without the use of a scalpel, stitch, or bandage and it highly effective at treating fine lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, and skin tags, as well as reducing excess lower eyelid skin.
How is it performed?
It’s done by using a plasma energy pen and through the sublimation process, turning gas in the air to a solid. As a result, it creates a series of small dots along the tension lines in the skin, which triggers an instant contracting and tightening of the skin that also promotes collagen build up in the area. Fibroblast is virtually painless and doesn’t require anesthesia. Numbing cream is used to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
The extremely accurate device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its metal tip and the skin (targeting only the epidermis layer). An electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissue retraction and tightening gives results that are comparable to invasive surgery by physically reducing the volume of skin in the surrounding area. The skin around the spot tightens instantly, pulling the cells closer together.
What does it treat?
Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening is able to treat a number of areas non-invasively, including:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Upper eyelids
- Under eyelids
- Nasolabial folds
- Upper Lip
- Lower Lip
- Stretch marks
- Skin tags
- Tummy/belly button
It is important to understand this treatment is best for skin tones that fall into types 1-3 on the Fitzpatrick skin scale. Darker skin sometimes has a tenancy to hyperpigment.
What can I expect from a treatment?
Usually, Fibroblast treatments last approximately one hour. The treatment is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia, and there are no cuts or blood. While the treatment device itself never touches the skin, the plasma flash creates a tiny dot (carbon crusts) upon contact. These superficial dots, which form in a symmetrical grid over the treatment area, are part of the normal healing process, and will fall off 5-7 days post-treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities right away with minimal discomfort.
How many treatments are required?
Many patients achieve their desired results after just one treatment. However, depending on the area being treated, the skin’s laxity, and individual response to treatment, an additional 1-2 treatments may be required after 6-8 weeks for maximum results.
How soon will I see results?
Most patients see results instantly, which continue to improve over the course of the following 8-12 weeks.
Following Fibroblast treatments, patients will enjoy noticeably healthier, firmer skin for years to come. In fact, 90% of patients treated have reported improvements to wrinkles, fine lines, and puffiness, and 84% reported receiving compliments on their skin after treatment.
The positive effects of the procedure will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen by the 8th to 12th week as the skin has had time to go through a full regenerative cycle. This is dependent on age and each individual’s overall healing abilities, on the specific area being treated, the skin’s laxity, and individual response to treatment. 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. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results. Those planning on treatment should also be aware that their race and genetics can also have an effect of the length of beneficial effects.

Pre and Post Procedure Instructions:
Two weeks before your appointment, please avoid anything harsh such as chemical peels, tanning, RetinA and BHA products. One week prior, refrain from taking anything that can unnecessarily thin the blood such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and alcohol. If you are taking prescription meds, please keep taking as recommended by your health care provider. Please refrain from caffeine the day of your appointment.
If treating an area of the body such as the abdomen, please wear clean, loos fitting clothing.
Come to the appointment with clean skin. No products on the skin. Please refrain from false eyelashes if eye area is being treated.
Following the Fibroblast treatment, most people experience a mild burning sensation similar to sunburn which resolves after a couple of hours. Some clients choose an OTC anti-inflammatory.
As a natural healing response, it is usual for the treated area to become swollen, especially around the more delicate areas such as the eyes.
Initially after treatment and for a day or so afterward there may be occasional weeping. This is simply plasma and is a natural healing response.
As the treated area begins to heal, you will notice its drying out process, a brown/black crust develops upon the surface of the skin.
This simply flakes out after a few days but in some cases they can take over two weeks. DO NOT not pick at this crusting as it can lead to infection or scarring. Likewise it is important to keep the treated area clean and dry.
If out and about, we advise coverage of a high factor sunscreen to avoid sunburn as the area’s sensitivity to light will be heightened for up to three months. It cannot be expressed enough to stay out of the sun!
Lukewarm boiled water is best for cleaning the treated area. Do not use alcohol-based cleansers or apply a plaster or occlusive dressing as this will interfere and slow down the healing process. We recommend aloe vera gel as soon as you get home, continue to apply morning and night during healing. Starting day 3 keep the treated area moist with a natural oil such as vitamin E, rose hips oil, or a natural healing balm.
No swimming pools, saunas, or hot tubs for at least seven days. The scabs need to fall off naturally for best results.
No strenuous exercising/heavy sweating for seven days.
Providing you listen carefully and follow closely all aftercare advice you should soon be enjoying your new look. However, if it anytime the treated area becomes hot, red, or show signs of infection, please contact your health care provider immediately.
For optimum results, more than one treatment is usually needed and can be completed from around eight weeks onward.
