What's Involved with Fibroblast Treatments?

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

Plasma fibroblast treatment might seem like a term from a sci-fi movie, but it's a real and revolutionary anti-aging solution in today's beauty industry. This noninvasive treatment addresses loose skin, wrinkles, stretch marks, and pigmentation issues effectively and safely.


At Waxology, we continuously explore cutting-edge beauty technologies to enhance our clients' services. Fibroblast treatment is a service that stands out for its effectiveness and minimized risks compared to other anti-aging procedures. To appreciate this innovation, it's essential to comprehend what plasma is and how plasma pens interact with your skin's fibroblasts.


Plasma Demystified


Although plasma might sound alien and complex, you encounter different plasma forms in everyday life, such as the Northern lights, lightning bolts, and stars. Simply put, plasma is an ionized gas consisting of positively charged ionized particles, which form when energy flows through the gas, liberating electrons and allowing them to coexist with ions.


Applications of Plasma


Plasma can be either naturally occurring or artificial. Its charge-holding capacity allows manipulation through magnetic fields, leading to numerous plasma-based inventions. From fluorescent lights to plasma TVs, plasma applications have grown. The recent advancements in plasma research have enabled its miniaturization, paving the way for its use in aesthetic treatments.


How Can Plasma Aid in Anti-Aging Procedures?


Plasma's Role in Anti-Aging Procedure


When plasma is applied to your skin, it creates microscopic wounds. These wounds stimulate fibroblasts in the deeper layers of your skin. Fibroblasts generate and maintain connective tissue, hence their vital role in healing wounds and producing collagen, a protein that maintains your skin elastic and healthy. The tiny wounds created by plasma are enough to activate these fibroblasts, which respond by repairing the damage and producing extra collagen.


This fibroblast activity has several beneficial effects, including creating new surface skin that improves elasticity and thickness. This process effectively reverses the signs of aging that your skin naturally experiences over time.


What Is a Plasma Pen?


A plasma pen is a tool that encapsulates plasma technology, enabling estheticians to control the plasma's delivery to your skin precisely. The plasma is created within the pen and discharged through its tip. The pen will only discharge if it is close to the skin to ensure safety.


Waxology takes pride in providing top-notch, innovative tools and procedures. Aware of the low-quality pens posing as plasma application devices in the market, we insist on using the superior, medical-grade Plasma Concepts Pen.


Risks of Using Inferior Plasma Pens


Using a substandard plasma pen, no matter how skilled the operator may be, poses significant risks. These pens are unreliable and may malfunction during the procedure, leading to potentially severe damage. That's why using a legitimate, medical-grade tool for this procedure is essential.

Key Features of the Plasma Concepts Pen


The Plasma Concepts Pen offers several notable advantages for fibroblast therapy:

  • Ergonomic design: The pen fits comfortably in the user's hand, ensuring precision during the procedure.

  • Ultrafine tips: The 0.4 mm tips of the Plasma Concepts Pen are ideal for creating micro-abrasions in the skin. These tips are hygienically treated and individually sealed to prevent infection.

  • Total control: The pen has a reliable plasma delivery mechanism with fingertip control, allowing the esthetician to fine-tune every procedure.


Is Fibroblast Treatment Right for You?


With the plethora of anti-aging procedures available, fibroblast treatment may be your best choice. This treatment is safer and more effective than many alternatives. Since the micro-abrasions are created using a current, there are no open wounds, reducing the risk of infection. Most patients recover within a week, and the results last for years, preserving your youthful glow.


Besides addressing wrinkles, age lines, and age spots, fibroblast treatment can also help with acne scars and certain skin growths, ensuring your skin remains fresh and healthy.


Caution: Don't Try This at Home


Fibroblast pens require specialized training for proper use. Inexpert use can lead to incorrect placement or depth of wounds, which results in ineffective treatment and, at worst, can lead to tissue infection and scarring. Any subsequent skin repair can be challenging and costly.

Preparing for Your Treatment Session


To minimize trauma to your skin, avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning several weeks before your treatment. You should also avoid procedures such as Botox and fillers in the areas you plan to treat.


Post-Treatment Care


After the procedure, you'll notice dots on your treated area. These dots are protective scabs covering the micro-wounds and should fall off naturally in about four to five days as your skin heals. During this time, avoid harsh face washing, picking at the scabs, applying makeup, or sweating excessively, as these can disrupt the healing process.


Potential Side Effects of Anti-Aging Plasma


Like any procedure, fibroblast treatment may lead to minor side effects such as redness, swelling, skin peeling, or light or dark spots on your skin once the scabs fall off. If these persist after healing, you may need further consultation.



Who is Not Eligible for Treatment?


Certain conditions may make fibroblast treatment unsuitable or potentially dangerous, including:

  • Lupus

  • Epilepsy

  • Hepatitis, HIV, or AIDS

  • Pregnancy or currently breastfeeding

  • Keloid scarring

  • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation

  • Fitzpatrick Skin Type V or VI

  • Vitiligo


Also, areas affected by birthmarks or active psoriasis/eczema are unsuitable for treatment.


When Can You Expect to See Results?


Depending on the condition you're addressing with fibroblast treatment, results could be visible a week after a single session.


However, it may take up to three sessions in some cases to notice a significant difference. Certain conditions, such as diabetes, anemia, and kidney or liver disease, may delay your recovery process.
