There’s no doubt that cosmetic surgery can be a valuable tool in the quest to stay looking younger for longer. However, many patients aren’t ready, willing, or able to go under the knife due to the cost, lengthy recovery process, and other factors associated with plastic surgery. For men and women seeking a nonsurgical treatment to address the signs of aging and rejuvenate the skin, fibroblasting can be a fantastic option. Read on to learn more about this exciting treatment, including how it works, where it can be used, and what results may be possible for you.
What is fibroblast skin tightening?
Fibroblasting is a completely nonsurgical skin tightening treatment that utilizes plasma microbeams to trigger the production of collagen and elastin, two essential components for healthy, firm skin.
Where can fibroblasting be used?
One of the most exciting aspects of fibroblasting is that it can be used across many areas of the body. Many women use fibroblast for stretch marks after pregnancy, while some patients primarily use fibroblast for wrinkles and lines on the face. Some of the most common concerns and areas that are treated using fibroblast plasma skin tightening include:
• Facial lines and wrinkles
• Lip lines
• Acne scars
• Stretch marks
• Hooded eyes
• Crow’s feet
During your initial consultation at MF Aesthetics, one of our knowledgeable team members will thoroughly evaluate your skin, discuss your concerns at length, and answer your questions fully in order to determine if fibroblasting, or any another skin tightening treatment, is the most appropriate procedure to help you achieve your goals.
How does fibroblasting work?
Plasma fibroblasting is performed in one of our comfortable and private treatment rooms and typically takes about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the area(s) being treated and the severity of the patient’s concerns. Most patients tolerate the mild discomfort associated with fibroblasting relatively well and do not require any numbing agents. However, the caring team at MF Aesthetics can offer a topical anesthetic for patients who are concerned about the possibility of pain. Once the skin has been thoroughly cleansed, a handheld fibroblasting device will be passed over the area several times to ensure complete and efficient treatment. The plasma microbeams that are delivered to the skin trigger the body to begin producing new collagen and elastin, which will, ultimately, result in tighter, firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
Can I go back to work after fibroblasting?
Patients are generally able to return to their daily routines following fibroblasting treatment, making it a convenient option for men and women who lead busy lifestyles. Patients may experience mild numbness, redness, or swelling at the treatment site, but these symptoms typically resolve within a few days and can be relieved with a cooling gel that is applied after the session. Following fibroblasting skin treatment, it is important that patients keep their skin moisturized and avoid sun exposure.
When will I see results after fibroblasting?
While some patients may notice an improvement soon after fibroblasting, it typically takes a few weeks for changes to begin taking place. As the body continues to produce collagen and elastin, the results will continue to improve, with the final outcome usually becoming visible after 2 – 3 months.
How many fibroblasting sessions do you need?
The number of fibroblasting treatments a person needs depends on the severity of concerns, the body’s response to treatment, the patient’s individual goals, and other factors. The majority of patients are able to achieve their desired outcome with a single fibroblast session, though some may desire a second treatment after 2 – 3 months.
How long does fibroblasting last?
The results of fibroblast skin tightening can last up to two years in some cases. However, like any cosmetic treatment, the longevity of the results can vary from patient to patient. To maintain the results of fibroblasting for as long as possible, patients should:
• Practice routine skin care
• Keep the skin moisturized
• Avoid sun exposure
• Wear sunscreen
• Stop smoking
• Avoid excessive alcohol consumption
• Eat a healthy, balanced diet
• Stay hydrated
• Take advantage of additional skin treatments
Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening is inadvisable for the following:
• Metal pins or plates
• Severe cardiovascular disorders
• Cancer patients
• Uncontrolled blood pressure
• Blood disorders
• Autoimmune diseases
• Pigmentation disorders
• Fitzpatrick scale 5 and 6
• Herpes Simplex

How do you reduce swelling after a Plasma Pen treatment?
There are various things you can do to minimise swelling after a Plasma Pen treatment.
• To the swollen area, place an ice pack wrapped in a clean cloth. Ice should not be applied straight to the skin
• If you are in pain, take paracetamol instead of anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, or steroids
• To decrease swelling, sleep on your back with your head raised during the healing time.
• Do not clean the treated area till the next day
• Do not exercise or expose yourself to heat, steam, or sweat for 48 hours after treatment because this can worsen edoema
• To avoid difficulties, follow the aftercare recommendations provided by the technician
