Plasma Pen Fibroblast Treatment Q&A

What is Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment?

The Plasma Pen fibroblast treatment, also called fibroblast plasma therapy, is a relatively new skin tightening procedure that converts electrical energy into a form of gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen. That energized gas is then transmitted to the surface of your skin. 

The process creates microtrauma by heating and physically disrupting the cells in the deeper layers of your skin. Your body launches a quick healing response, producing new collagen. The treatment is termed “fibroblasting” after fibroblasts, which are the cells in your skin that are responsible for producing collagen. 

What can Plasma Pen treatments address?

Plasma Pen sessions can improve the appearance of numerous issues at once. This makes it a great value, both in terms of the cost of treatments and in condensed scheduling and recovery time. 

Some of the skin complaints Plasma Pen treatments can address include:

  • Stretch marks
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Bags and hoods on the upper and lower eyelids
  • Sagging at the jawline
  • Acne scarring
  • Smile lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines

During your initial consultation, your Freya’s Lair Medical Spa practitioner discusses how Plasma Pen sessions can improve your specific skin concerns, or guide you toward other treatments that are better suited for your needs. 

How much downtime will I need after Plasma Pen fibroblast sessions?

You likely need 2-4 treatments to achieve optimal results. These sessions are spaced around three months apart to give your body a chance to heal. 

Most patients find Plasma Pen sessions easily tolerable. A numbing cream can reduce sensations during treatment. Expect some redness, scabbing, and swelling for a few days after your sessions. 

Most facial treatments take around eight days to fully heal, while body treatments can take 10-14 days, depending on the area and the depth of treatment. For both face and body, swelling usually hits a peak around three days after your session, then quickly subsides. Scabbing follows, and those rough patches tend to slough off around 6-7 days after your session.
