Why is it such a unique and revolutionary treatment?
Plasma Fibroblast is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment because it offers an alternative to invasive surgical procedures.
A non-surgical treatment that can be applied with absolute precision to areas that other treatments might not be able to target as effectively, Plasma Fibroblast delivers results with the advantage of minimal downtime and low risk of infection. For example, the Plaxpot Plasma Pen allows you to treat areas such as eyelids that generally can’t be treated with other modalities (e.g — laser, RF or IPL) within a salon or clinic environment.
Results from Plasma Fibroblast are also faster and more significant than those that
can be achieved by microneedling and laser alone; results can be seen for up to 18-24
months with as little as two or three treatments, and minimal maintenance is required.
Unlike other plasma devices on the market, the Plaxpot Plasma Pen comes with three treatment tips – giving therapists the ability to use the pen for modalities other than Plasma Fibroblast.
These additional tips can be used to improve product absorption and diminish signs of ageing without causing a thermal trauma and can be used alongside other modalities such as epiblading, microdermabrasion and LED to achieve superior results for clients.
The Plaxpot Plasma pen device is 1 of the only 2 devices in Australia that is FDA and TGA cleared, it also features variable energy outputs that allow therapists to control the intensity of the treatment and is designed to accommodate disposable plasma tips that provide pin-point accuracy.
Both of these unique features reduce the risk of scarring, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation, and ensure a faster healing time when compared to other fibroblast devices.
What is Plasma Fibroblast?
Plasma Fibroblast is an innovative development in aesthetic treatments using the fourth state of matter — Plasma (the first 3 being solids, liquids + gas). The treatment is delivered using an electronic handpiece (the plasma pen) containing a small metal probe, that when exposed to atmospheric gas (nitrogen) produces a tiny plasma flash between the device tip and the client’s skin.
This tiny superficial thermal trauma causes the skin in its vicinity to tighten and lift — giving results that are immediately noticeable after just one treatment. Over the next 90 days the elasticity of the skin and the skin tightening effects will continue to progress as the healing of the dermis promotes the production of new collagen and elastin.
The device is a single-patient use, sterile needle where THE NEEDLE DOES NOT PENETRATE THE SKIN AT ANY POINT.
How can Plasma benefit our client’s results?
Plasma Fibroblast has a tightening effect on skin that has lost its firmness, with results that last as long as they would with a surgical procedure – for a fraction of the cost! Because it’s applied as a spot treatment, downtime for a client is just 5 – 10 days (as opposed to the months of recovery required after surgery), and there’s low risk of infections and scarring if the thorough aftercare regime is followed.
Plasma Fibroblast can be performed on the face, neck, hands and most parts of the body, and may assist with lifting and rejuvenating the appearance of:
- droopy eyelids
- lower eyebags
- crow’s feet
- Brow lift
- nasolabial folds
- neck wrinkles/saggying
- skin tags
Plasma treatment can be slightly uncomfortable but definitely bareable, however a numbing cream can be applied for extra comfort. A tightening effect can be seen immediately after treatment. There will be mild swelling of the treated area for a few days and small Plasma Dots will form, these remain for about 5-10 days and then will naturally shed.
How Many Treatments do i need?
This will depend on several factors, including the amount of skin laxity and the age, and the health of the client. On average 2 to 4 treatments are required per area. You will see a great result even after 1 treatment however for the longevity of the treatment minimum 2 sessions are recommended.
How Long Willl the Treatment last?
On average for 2-4 years, however as everybody continues to age and even though collagen lasts a few years, the continuous ageing process will mean maintenance sessions will be required.
Preparing for Plasma Lift
- Advise your therapist about your use of Retin-A / tretinoin and other active skin ingredients
- It is highly recommended to prep your skin with a Vitamin B or C serum or some type of tyrosinase inhibitors to help with the healing and pigmentation side of things. (speak to your therapist)
- Avoid tanning prior to procedure. If you get tanned / sunburnt please postpone your procedure
- You should not have inflamed skin or be systemically unwell (eg cold or flu) when having this procedure. Please postpone your procedure
Post Plasma Fibroblast:
- Swelling is completely normal. For the first 48 hrs the area should be kept dry. You MUST NOT get the area wet for the first 48 hours. Avoid vigorous exercise as this will increase swelling.
- Do NOT scratch or pick any of the superficial crusting on the surface. You will increase risk of infection and scarring if you pick the scabs. Let them exfoliate on their own.
- If you experience itching, an over the counter antihistamine may be helpful
- Be patient, the healing part is a process. Take time to rest, sleep and heal.
- Oedema (swelling) may also occur. Sleeping on 2 pillows with your head elevated helps.
- Do not apply ANY other creams, ointments or products of any kind on face until you are told it is ok to do so.
- Avoid exposing the treatment area to the sun as this could result in pigmentation, Once all Plasma Dots have shed SPF 50+ must be worn daily.
- Do not apply any make-up (even mineral) for the first 4 days or until the scabbing or peeling is complete (about 7-10 days)
- Avoid skin treatments such as Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, Skin Needling or any Laser treatments for 4-6 weeks after the treatment. (Please check in with you Practitioner Prior to any of these treatments)
Who should avoid plasma tightening?
- Those who have a dark complexion, as they are at higher risk for hyperpigmentation
- Those with active skin disease including inflammation, dermatitis or rosacea flares, or any other skin disease where the barrier is impaired.
- Those with a pacemaker
- Those with an active cold sore (ie herpes simplex). These patients should reschedule their appointment. Antivirals may be prescribed for you by your doctor to take before and during the treatment
- Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Those on Roaccutane
