What does the Fibroblast actually do to the skin?
The Fibroblast probe emits a plasma flash causing a micro-millimetre sized burn to the superficial layer of skin. This transfers a small amount of heat to the deeper layers of skin, which stimulates tightening, collagen and skin regeneration.
Is Fibroblast painful?
Everyone has a varying perception of pain. Some people describe a degree of discomfort whilst others are quite comfortable. Numbing products are optional at the clients discretion to manage the discomfort.
Does Fibroblast hurt afterwards?
Afterwards there may be some swelling and discomfort. This can be managed with paracetamol or Nurofen and will subside after only a few days.
Are the results immediate?
The plasma flash produces a carbonisation affect that shrinks the skin immediately. The skin then needs time to heal and the final results of each treatment will be visible approximately ten days later.
The number of treatment sessions required will depend upon the degree of tightening / lifting required. This will be discussed during the consultation.
Some treatments such as moles and skin tags may only require one session.
How long do the results last for?
In skin tightening the skin reduced and tightened by the fibroblast will not re-stretch, however no treatment can prevent any future aging, all we can do is treat it as it occurs. It is possible to have additional fibroblast treatments down the line as further wrinkles or sagging naturally occurs with the aging process.
Moles and skin tags are permanently removed
Skin conditions such as Xanthelasma and Syringoma may recur regardless of the removal method.
