Using a PlasmaPen device, it’s entirely possible to perform a wide range of cosmetic treatments in a non-surgical and non-invasive way. This means less recovery time, less downtime and fewer side effects. One of the main uses of PlasmaPen is fibroblast treatment, and we have taken a look at the side effects below.
Will I See Side Effects?
You may encounter a side effect or two after having fibroblast treatment, and these tend to vary from person to person. You might be lucky and notice zero side effects during the healing process, and some people do, but most people experience something minor.

These side effects progress to stinging, itchiness, dry skin, crusting and weeping yellow pus, which are also considered normal.

At most, some of the side effects might be irritating to your skin or even slightly painful, but this is all part of the process of skin tightening. Luckily, side effects of fibroblast treatment are not long lasting, and they should disappear within a few days.
