What is Fibroblast Plasma?

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.

How does it work?

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.

Plasma treatment can be slightly uncomfortable but definitely bearable, however, a numbing cream can be applied for extra comfort. A tightening effect can be seen immediately after treatment.  


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/sagging
  • skin tags
  • Stretchmarks

Recovery time

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.

Treatment intervals

This will depend on several factors, including the amount of skin laxity and 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 of 2 sessions are recommended.

Preparing for Fibroblast Plasma

  • 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 48hrs, 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 crustings on the surface. You will increase the risk of infection and scarring if you pick the scabs. Let them exfoliate on their own.
  • If you experience itching, and 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 your 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 your Practitioner Prior to any of these treatments)
