I’m always looking to advance my services by providing the best and safest treatments old or new for my clients to achieve the best skin possible. I am excited to share that starting in January I will be offering Plasma FirbroBlast Skin Tightening treatments. This is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to eliminate excess skin providing the same results as invasive surgery with low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable pricing than surgery. Plasma Pro Skin Tightening, also referred to as “soft surgery”, is known for it's success with Non Surgical Eye lift, Tummy Tightening, Stretch Marks and so much more.
The term "Soft Surgery" is used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery, with no scalpel, stitches or bandages and minimal downtime.
HOW DOES PLASMA FIBROBLAST TREATMENT WORK?
Fibroblast is a relatively new innovation in the beauty industry in North America but has been used since 1994 in Europe. The extremely accurate hand held device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the natural gasses emitted from our skin, to form a plasma charge. A small electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissues retract and tighten giving you more youthful looking skin.
WHAT IS IT USED TO TREAT?
Fibroblast is able to treat a number of imperfections without any actual cutting of the skin. It can be used for:
• Eyelid Tightening, including under eyes and excess upper eyelid skin.
• Skin imperfections.
• Improvement in the appearance of acne scars
• Tightening loose stomach skin after pregnancy.
• Lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
• Jowls and Neck Tightening.
• Knee Caps and Under Arms
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
As Fibroblast is more than a simple tightening treatment (skin volume is actually reduced), the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of Fibroblast are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further ageing, but the positive results should last 3-5 years depending on the area treated. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after 8 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results. 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.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 8 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to achieve better results. Appointments must be spaced out by 8 weeks.
WHAT TO EXPECT-SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS
Fibroblast has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature when done by a fully certified technician. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment.
There will be small carbon crusts (little polkadots) in the treated area that will last 7-10 days before naturally lifting, revealing new pink skin beneath. Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you.
Knowing skin as well as I do I’ve learned over the years it’s not just about what cosmetic treatments you have done as much as it is how you recover from them that determine the best results. Who you choose to perform this type of treatment is most important. Choosing someone who is an expert in skin function and healing as well as the best trained will give you amazing results. You can feel confident that you’re skin is in the right hands and I look forward to seeing your incredible results.
