How long does The Plasma Fibroblast Pen Treatment take?
Treatment is delivered using The Plasma Fibroblast Pen, which has a small acupuncture needle that transfers energy to the skin by using voltage in the air between the device tip and the skin to generate a plasma charge.
This transfer of energy takes place only when the applicator needle is approximately 0.5mm to the skin, meaning it never actually touches the skin.
It’s a much less invasive and expensive alternative to surgery in both time and money!
Any adverse reactions to the Plasma Fibroblast Pen?
The only thing you may notice after the treatment is a thermal skin reaction called plasma points. Each plasma spot creates an effect radius that contracts the skin in the immediate vicinity.
Due to the optimal arrangement of the dots, an effect grid is created which can cause instant tightening of the targeted area. There may also be some swelling if you are receiving an eye treatment. This is temporary and will resolve itself within a short amount of time.
How long before I see the results of the Plasma Fibroblast Pen?
The positive effects of The Plasma Fibroblast Treatment is instant and visible during the treatment itself but will be even more noticeable at 4 weeks, with continuing improvement up to 12 weeks.
Follow up treatments may be performed after 6 to 8 weeks depending on your skin’s natural healing process.
Is the Plasma Fibroblast Pen skin tightening results permanent?
Plasma skin tightening effects are comparable with invasive surgery. Like any surgical or cosmetic procedures, the effects of Plasma treatment are not entirely permanent and won’t stop the ageing process, however, the results you get should last you for many years.
The average adult should see the effects for five years or more. Negative lifestyle choices such as too much sun, smoking and excess alcohol consumption are discouraged in order to maintain lasting results. Aftercare and maintenance is possible at any time.
Is the Plasma Fibroblast Pen safe?
Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe procedure in thousands of patients around the world due to its non-invasive nature, but as with all cosmetic procedures, patients may experience minor side effects in the first 5-7 days after treatment.
The treatment area can show small but visible brown dotted marks, which typically heal within 5-7 days. If eye treatment is required, there may be 3-5 days of swelling. To avoid side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare instructions closely. These will be given to you prior to your treatment.
Overall, the treatment is comfortable and low in complications.
What is the downtime with Plasma Fibroblast Pen?
While you may resume your normal work immediately, the treatment can cause ‘crusts’ to form on the skin giving a distinctive dotting effect. You can also experience significant swelling in the area treated, particularly in the eye area. The swelling will diminish over a 2-5 day period and the crust (brown dots) that occur are gone on average between 5-7 days.
These are, however, cosmetic issues only so technically there is no real downtime if these visual effects are of no concern to you.
What skin types are unsuitable for the Plasma Fibroblast treatment?
Candidates with dark skin. The risk of hyper or hypo-pigmentation is much higher.
All skin blemishes must be diagnosed by a Doctor as benign before removal.
We are able to treat Skin Tags, Cherry Angioma, Scar Removal, Age Spots, Benign Sunspots and Stretch Marks.
How many treatments are required?
In most cases, only one treatment is required, however, depending on the area of the face or body being treated and individual conditions and expectations one or two post-treatments may be necessary.
How long does The Plasma Fibroblast Pen Treatment take?
We typically book sessions for a minimum of one hour.
> Numbing Time – 30 mins.
> Treatment Time – 10-45 mins (or longer in larger areas of the body).
Is the Plasma Fibroblast Pen painful?
If you have a very low pain threshold, you may experience some mild discomfort. We use a topical anaesthetic application and allow it time to take effect in the areas you would like to have treated. The topical anaesthetic is applied for 30 mins for the best effect.
It would be appreciated if you could be on time for your appointment to allow for the application of this anaesthetic.
Contraindication for the Plasma Fibroblast treatment?
Treatments are offered only to people who will see the benefits. Plasma is a very safe and effective treatment, however is not suitable for everyone. There are certain medical conditions and skin types which do not react well. We will assess this on an individual basis at your consultation visit and give full reasons to you if you are not eligible. Treatment is not advised for;
> Candidates with very dark skin. The risk of hyper or hypo-pigmentation is much higher.
> Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Plasma Fibroblast Pen VS Surgery?
Plasma Fibroblast Pen converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen and transmits that energised gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen.
Surgery is invasive, meaning you get folds of skin cut off you with a scalpel and being stitched back together. It also has a much longer recovery time, and can sometimes give less than satisfactory results.
