WHAT IS FIBROBLAST - Plasma Skin Tightening
Fibroblast is a revolutionary, non-invasive, non-surgical, more natural face lift procedure, which shrinks excess skin, bags and wrinkles. Results can last years after treatment making this a cost-effective treatment.
Q: What is a Fibroblast treatment?
A: Plasma Fibroblast treatment is the newest non-invasive face lift procedure. Shrinking excess skin, bags and wrinkles, instantly lifting the skin around the treated area with results similar to that of traditional surgery. The treatment can only be performed by a certified technician.
Q: HOW DOES IT WORK?
A: The Purebeau Fibroblast hand piece produces a plasma arc which produces a small flash which leaps from the tip to the skin in a micromillimetre sized point. This superficial point minimises the skin in its immediate vicinity – which renews firmness, tightens the skin and reduces the excess skin. A series of tiny dots are strategically placed to attain the desired result for the excess skin. Unlike cosmetic surgery, there is no skin invasion, no bleeding and no scars. A fast and comfortable treatment. Clients will notice results right away although it takes 2-4 weeks for the full effect to be visible. The elasticity of the skin will be improved and a distinctive tightening is made possible.
Q: What are some of the most popular areas to have treated by Fibroblast?
A: Some of the most popular fibroblast applications include:
Reduction of the upper lip wrinkles
Stretch marks and scars
Q: How should I prepare for the treatment?
A: The only major requirement prior to treatment is that the skin is not tanned. Clients will need to avoid the sun completely, 3 months prior and 3 months post-treatment. We also suggest not to apply any cosmetics before the procedure.
Q: Is a consultation required?
A: Absolutely. Anyone interested in a fibroblast procedure is required to have a face-to-face consultation. Careful assessment by us will ensure the right treatment plan.
Q: How long is the treatment?
A: Prior to the treatment and to minimize any discomfort, we apply a numbing cream to the treatment area for 45 minutes. The procedure itself takes between 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area we are treating. We advise clients to allow themselves 2 hours from start to finish which includes a thorough consultation.
Q: Does the treatment hurt?
A: As mentioned we apply a numbing cream prior to commencing the treatment, which will help to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.
Q: What to expect immediately after the treatment?
A: The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen by the 8th week as the skin has had time to go through the full rejuvenation cycle. Following the treatment, it is normal to have some swelling. This can be significant around the eyes and can last for several days. Crusting will develop over the treated area. These will usually be brown or black on the surface of the skin and will flake off over the following days. It is strongly advised not pick these scabs as this may lead to scarring or infection. Occasionally the treatment area may become a little weepy, this is part of the normal healing process and will improve with time. It is also important to note that everyone’s healing time is different, slight sensitivity and redness can last for up to 6 months.
Q: Are there any specific after-care recommendations?
A: Yes. It is very important to follow our after-care recommendations. Carbon crusts cannot be scratched or removed. Dry skin by dabbing with a clean, lint-free cloth is allowed. It is essential that you keep the treatment area clean, dry and protected. We advise that you do not apply moisturisers until all the scabs have fallen off. It is important that you wear sunscreen after treatment and avoid sunbeds for at least 3 months. Our aftercare balm should be applied to the area for up to 7 days. Sports, swimming and sauna are not permitted until crusts fall off – this should happen within 7 days of procedure. Healing skin should be protected from direct sun exposure with SPF50 cream. We suggest incorporating a SPF with your daily moisturiser which we strongly recommend to continuously use, every day for at least 6 months post treatment, to prevent pigmentation.
Q: How many treatments are required?
A: In some cases, just one treatment may be sufficient. Many of the treatments will depend on the size of the treated area and the client’s desired results. If a client requires an additional treatment to achieve optimum results, they will have to wait at least 12 weeks after their 1st treatment.
Q: How long will results last?
A: The treatment should last at least 2-5 years however many lifestyle factors will contribute to how long the results actually last.
