The Plasma Pen is a new, state-of-the-art, FDA and CE approved technology used for skin tightening, lifting and regeneration. Also known as Fibroblasting, the stimulation of fibroblasts that rebuild healthy collagen, this innovative treatment is used to address a variety of skin concerns related to the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin such as sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Good Candidate for Fibroblast Lift?
If you are seeking a non-surgical solution to address visible signs of aging, this treatment may be right for you. The treatment works best on light to medium complexions. Because patients with very dark skin have a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypo-pigmentation (light spots) following treatment, this procedure is not recommended. It is also contraindicated for pregnant or nursing patients.
The downtime ?
After treatment, you can expect swelling and redness. Swelling will begin to subside around day three and scabs will form. These scabs will begin to flake off around day five. It is very important to not pick or rub these scabs and allow them to fall off on their own. Downtime for the face and neck will average about 5-8 days and 10 to 14 days for body treatments.
Painful ? Any risks ?
The treatment will be mildly to moderately painful depending on the patients’ tolerance. Numbing cream will be used to decrease discomfort. As it is a non-surgical procedure, the risks are minimal. While swelling will be normal and expected, there is minimal risk of slight bruising, skin discoloration and scarring. It is crucial to find a professionally trained practitioner to perform this procedure to minimize any possible risks.
When will I see results ?
Some immediate tightening will be evident. Gradual improvement will occur over a period of 12 weeks. Although one treatment is usually all that is needed, sometimes a second treatment may be required depending on desired results. Results can last approximately three years, but in some cases can be permanent. It is important to remember that aging continues, therefore future treatments may be performed as maintenance.
