Fibroblast Plasma-Lift in Beverly Hills, CA
FIBROBLAST PLASMA PEN
The Fibroblast Plasma Pen is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that can be used to treat all of these various skin concerns. This device shoots an electrical discharge to the skin that induces superficial micro trauma. This micro-trauma stimulates the healing process for the creation of new, rejuvenated, tight, and smooth tissue over 8-12 weeks. Collagen and elastin are produced, plumping the structure of the skin to soften and eliminate lines and wrinkles.
Fibroblasting is used to treat a number of skin imperfections, including:
How Long Is The Downtime?
You may experience some mild swelling for the first few days and carbon crusts (scabs) that form due to the plasma pen. It is very important to avoid the sun for the first week or so, while your skin is healing. If you need to be out in the sun, wear a hat that will shade the entire area you received the treatment. After the tiny scabs shed off, you’ll want to minimize the risk of hyper-pigmentation and apply SPF 60+. You have to take care of your skin as it is considered fresh new skin. Proper post-care and maintenance is key to having long-lasting results.
BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR PLASMA FIBROBLASTING TREATMENT
Prep Your Skin
At least three to four weeks prior to your fibroblasting treatment, you should avoid tanning your skin. This includes tanning beds, spray tanning, etc. If you have darker-pigmented skin, you should use SPF 30 or higher three to four weeks prior to treatment. If you experience or are more likely to have hyperpigmentation (overproduction of pigment in the skin), please call and we can recommend products that can help.
There are procedures that you’ll need to avoid having done in the same area where you will have Fibroblast Pen treatment. These include chemical peels, botox or fillers, microneedling, and laser therapy. Surgical procedures must have a waiting period before and after the Fibroblast Pen of at least 9 or 10 months. You’ll also want to avoid using facial acids like Retin A, salicylic, and glycolic. If you are planning any of the aforementioned procedures, it is important to schedule a consultation to discuss the pre and post-time-frame to avoid these procedures.
Post Treatment Care
It is normal to experience a stinging sensation immediately following the procedure, but this usually only lasts for about an hour. If the area becomes swollen, you may apply cold packs, but make sure they are covered with a clean cloth and do not put ice directly on the affected area. If possible, avoid taking any anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, Advil, or aspirin. We will provide you with post-treatment instructions, but here are some things to avoid immediately following the treatment:
