Plasma treatments have gained a reputation as one of the best Non-Surgical procedures in the medical aesthetic industry for skin tightening. The PlasM Plasma Pen Fibroblast treatment is a safe and effective non-surgical lifting and tightening procedure which offers similar results to traditional surgery but without the high risks, cost and downtime.
How does it work?
The treatment involves a pen like device that holds a sterile single-use probe which will produce a small plasmic arc. This little arc, or flash, will cause microscopic points of evaporation in the tissue via a process called sublimation (turning a solid into gas). Consequently shrinkage in the epidermal skin layer is caused, without any damage to the surrounding tissue. A specific cluster or pattern of point sequences is placed in the treatment area, generating a reduction grid and decreasing the amount of excess skin which results in immediate contraction and tightening in the area without cutting.
How long until I will see results?
The healing and repair processes that are initiated during the treatment will stimulate Fibroblasts cells which are responsible for the structure and “scaffolding” of the skin. These cells will synthesize new collagen and connective tissue as well as allowing the skin to recover from injury.
Patients will notice results right away although it may take a minimum 6-8 weeks for the full effect to be visible
Who is a good candidate for PlasM?
The treatment will work best on healthy individuals with well-functioning skin and an active skin care regime. Your clinician will discuss your individual situation and may propose a skin preparation and aftercare plan to avoid side effects and assure you achieve the best outcome prior to performing a fibroblast treatment.
What can be treated?
PlasM is successfully used to treat lines and wrinkles, loose skin on face and body, scarring, stretchmarks as well as benign raised skin lesions.

How many treatments and what to expect?
Results vary with each individual but most patients only require 1-3 treatments depending on the amount and severity of skin laxity as well as each individuals healing ability. Deeper wrinkles, expression lines and excessive loose skin usually require a touch-up procedure. Most people will see fairly significant results after the first treatment, and if additional treatments are required, they can be performed around 10-12 weeks after the original treatment. Immediately after the treatment small brown dots (carbon crusts) will be noticeable and stay for about 5-14 days before they come off and expose fresh new skin beneath. Redness and swelling, especially with eye procedures, are completely normal and should subside within a few days (2-5) after the treatment, redness or pinkness of the new skin may last for up to 8 weeks or until the skin has completely healed and the collagen and elastin fibres are replaced. Redness that lasts longer than 8 weeks is very rare but possible.
How long will the results last?
Like the majority of surgical and cosmetic procedures PlasM does not stop future ageing and can’t be considered entirely permanent. Nevertheless the longevity of the positive treatment results can last for years, depending on each individual’s lifestyle, genetics and quality of after care.
