Plastic Surgery Alternatives: Plasma Fibroblast Therapy

Plasma fibroblast is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of skin. While it is a relatively new type of treatment, it is rapidly gaining popularity as it provides an affordable alternative to plastic surgery, laser treatment, and Botox injections. The skin rejuvenation results from plasma fibroblast rival those normally only achieved with invasive surgery. What’s more, the treatment is much less risky and the downtime is minimal.

When Plasma fibroblast is carried out by a trained professional in a clinical environment, it can provide skin tightening effects, improve skin texture, and encourage tissue regeneration. Some of the conditions the therapy can help are:
• Acne scars
• Forehead lines, smile lines, and smoker’s lines
• Sun-damaged skin
• Crow’s feet around eyes
• Sagging skin
• Eye bags and hoods
• Age spots, moles, and birthmarks.
• Stretchmarks
The therapy can also be used in place of lip fillers to give lips a fuller look.

The Procedure

A typical procedure takes around 60 minutes to carry out. The treatment procedure may differ slightly based on the area being targeted, but the core steps are:

  1. Skin is cleansed thoroughly before a topical anesthetic is applied. Most numbing creams take around half an hour to take effect, so it’s important that patients arrive at appointments in plenty of time.
  2. A plasma pen is used to target the selected skin area. The pen will make tiny plasma points on the skin in a grid-like arrangement.
  3. The numbing cream is removed and a cooling gel is applied to the skin to reduce the burning and tingling sensation.


After a plasma fibroblast treatment, the targeted skin area will be red and swollen. Within 3 days, the swelling with subside and the skin will start to scab over. The scabs usually fall off around a week later. As the skin heals over the course of several weeks, it will appear smoother, tighter, and firmer.

Many people only need one treatment to see results, but those with more severely damaged skin might require multiple treatments to get the results they want. The results usually last around 3 years but can be permanent.

Fibroblast Side Effects

While Plasma fibroblast Skin Tightening therapy is a relatively safe procedure, like with all cosmetic treatments, side effects are possible. Some of the most commonly reported side effects are skin redness, swelling, skin peeling, mild hyperpigmentation, mild hypopigmentation, bruising, and skin crusting.

In addition, not all people are suitable candidates for the treatment. Those who are allergic to topical anesthetics, have a skin infection, or are using isotretinoin shouldn’t get plasma fibroblast therapy. Furthermore, anyone with a history of hypertrophic scarring or keloids so be cautious about seeking the treatment and ensure they obtain a professional consultation. Unfortunately, plasma fibroblast treatments are not as effective on darker skin tones. Many clinics will only perform the treatment on those with Fitzpatrick skin types 1 to 3.

Thee most important thing for those thinking about plasma fibroblast therapy is to find a skin clinic that is fully licensed and employs certified technicians who have experience with the technique. The clinic should also only be using FDA approved plasma pens.
