People of all ages, races, shapes, and sizes have loose skin. Despite its prevalence, having sagging skin can cause embarrassment and discomfort. In the past, the only way to deal with this condition was through invasive surgical procedures.
What is Fibroblasting?
Fibroblast skin tightening is a revolutionary new procedure. It provides an alternative to skin tightening without necessitating dangerous surgical procedures. You won’t need to go under the knife or miss weeks of work post-procedure with Fibroblast, but should still expect to see similar results as if you had.
So, what does Fibroblast do? How long does it take? Will it hurt?
We know you have a lot of questions. The good news is that we have the answers you need. Read on to see what Fibroblast is all about and see if it’s something that’ll work for you.
Does It Hurt?
No. Fibroblast treatment is a non-surgical solution for skin tightening. There is no pain associated with this procedure, though some patients may feel a minimal amount of discomfort.
A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area before the procedure.
Are There Side Effects?
Immediately after the Fibroblast procedure, you may notice that your skin is red and slightly swollen. This is normal and should subside in around three days. Though you may see a slight redness lingering for up to 14 days.
While the procedure is underway, carbon crusts form on the skin. You should avoid the urge to touch these crusts post-procedure. You can expect them to last around a week. They’ll naturally lift off as new skin appears underneath the treated area.
When you consider that you’re getting a skin tightening solution without the need for dangerous surgery, these side effects are much easier to swallow.
Your esthetician uses an electric handheld device called a plasma Fibroblast pen for the procedure. This pen uses a metal probe to ionize atmospheric gas between its tip and the gasses that the skin naturally emits. This forms a plasma charge.
An electrical arc is then created, shrinking the targeted skin. Your tissues will retract and tighten, providing you with a more youthful-looking appearance. Skin elasticity and tightening will continue to improve as time goes on post-treatment, and your skin continues to heal and repair.
How Long is the Fibroblast Treatment?
Fibroblast treatment length will depend upon the size of the area that’s being treated. You can expect the procedure to take anywhere between half an hour and two hours.
A topical numbing cream will be applied before your treatment and given thirty minutes to take full effect. You’ll also be given a cream after your procedure to help in the healing process.
How Long Will the Results Take to Show Up?
You should notice results immediately after your appointment. As cell turnover occurs and the production of collagen increases, you’ll notice further changes to your skin. You should expect to see the full results of your treatment after around three months.
Fibroblast procedure results typically last for three years.
