Fibroblast skin tightening is a patented, FDA-approved treatment that uses your body’s natural healing process to produce new, youthful, healthy skin tissue. The treatment utilises a hand-held pen device which creates atmospheric plasma gas/energy over an electromagnetic field when it is held 1mm above the skin’s surface.  When plasma energy penetrates the epidermis (top layer of skin) it sublimates the tissue, instantly tightening, shrinking and resurfacing the skin.  From this, your skin’s own growth factors, cytokines and stem cells are stimulated to rapidly heal the traumatised treatment area. The growth factors and stem cells contained in your skin stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin via particular cells called Fibroblasts, hence why this treatment is often referred to as fibroblasting.

People choose fibroblast skin tightening because it’s a proven treatment that works well to tighten loose skin and remove fine lines. This treatment can be used to treat loose skin on the face and neck and around the upper arms, thighs, and buttocks.

Today, let’s explore this new and innovative way to repair skin issues. Here’s what you need to know:

What is Fibroblast Skin Tightening?

Fibroblast skin tightening is an FDA-cleared, in-clinic procedure designed to tighten loose skin. It is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that does not require any downtime other than the fact you have minute crusts on your skin during the healing stage, all of which can be covered with a tinted SPF balm to disguise the dots and mild swelling.

The procedure begins with a hand-held pen device which creates atmospheric plasma gas/energy over an electromagnetic field when it is held 1mm above the skin’s surface.  When plasma energy penetrates the epidermis (top layer of skin) it sublimates the tissue, instantly tightening, shrinking and resurfacing the skin.  From this, your skin’s own growth factors, cytokines and stem cells are stimulated to rapidly heal the traumatised treatment area. The growth factors and stem cells contained in your skin stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin via particular cells called Fibroblasts, hence why this treatment is often referred to as fibroblasting.

What are the Benefits?

Minimally Invasive

The benefit of this procedure is that it does not require any incisions or general anaesthesia. It is performed in-clinic with local anaesthesia and does not disrupt your daily routine.

Safe and Effective

The treatment is proven to work well and is safe for most skin types, excluding darker skin tones. It can be used to treat loose skin on the face and neck and the upper arms, thighs, and buttocks.

Painless Treatment

Unlike other minimally invasive procedures, fibroblast skin tightening is virtually painless. It does not require injections of anaesthesia or needles, simply a topical anaesthetic cream to dull any skin sensations.

Short Duration

The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete post-numbing time for small areas such as the orbital eye zones.

Quick Recovery

Patients can resume their regular routine except for exercise knowing they will not look their best for 72hours. You will have a tinted balm applied with a sun protection factor to disguise the micro-traumas and mild swelling.  Some choose to stay home during this face, it is a personal choice.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

In this procedure, an expert aesthetician will deliver your treatment. First, your aesthetician will apply a topical anaesthetic cream onto the treatment area to numb the skin. Next, your aesthetician will precisely sublimate your skin for skin shrinkage or precisely resurface the skin to smooth and regulate uneven skin tones.  Your skin’s own growth factors, cytokines and stem cells will be stimulated in the targeted area along with the fibroblast cells to produce plentiful collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.

Minor redness and swelling are expected as the inflammatory response kick start in the skin as cells communicate to make new collagen.

After Treatment

As mentioned above, immediately following your treatment, you may return to your routine and even return to work after 24 hours, providing you are comfortable with the mild swelling and crusting of the skin, the tinted SPF balm will help disguise this. The results appear after 6 to 12 weeks, as the full skin remodelling of the dermal matrix takes 12 weeks to maximally tighten.

The Bottom Line

Many people decide to have their treatments done in the winter months as sun exposure is contraindicated to Fibroblast treatment. Some are interested in learning more about how they can address an area of concern on their face or neck, while others want to improve the appearance of loose skin. If you are interested in a fibroblast treatment you must tell your professional skin therapist of any upcoming holidays or vacations in the sun.
