What is Plasma Fibroblasting Treatment and What Can it Do for My Skin?

Plasma fibroblasting uses proven scientific principles to administer effective treatments for smoothing wrinkles, tightening skin, and plumping up lines. It’s a safe yet potent method of rejuvenating skin without the need for surgical procedures, so there’s very little downtime or recovery time required. When used by a trained aesthetician, plasma fibroblasting treatment achieves impressive results.

Why would my skin need plasma fibroblasting treatment?

Ageing is an inevitable process, but the signs of ageing can be slowed and even reversed using the science of plasma fibroblasting. In order to understand how fibroblasting works, it helps to look at the structure of skin in detail.

Skin is the largest organ in your body. The epidermis is the surface skin that you can see and touch. Underneath the epidermis is the dermis, which contains many nerves, blood vessels, glands, and hair follicles.

The upper section of the dermis, called the papillary layer, contains a thin layer of collagen fibre, while the reticular layer contains the majority of the collagen and elastin proteins that give skin its strength and elasticity.

As a natural consequence of the aging process, collagen and elastin production slows down, and the existing fibres begin to harden and fragment. This causes skin to lose its elasticity, and the underlying bones become more prominent as fatty tissues disappear.

Your face then starts to show the classic signs of aging – wrinkling, sagging skin, and hollow cheeks and temples. Your skin may also start to lose its healthy bloom, as nutrients fail to nourish the reticular layer, making your skin appear dull or sallow.

What does plasma fibroblasting do to my skin?

A fibroblast is a cell that creates collagen, elastin, and reticular fibres. Fibroblasts are the most numerous connective tissue cells in your body, and are in the active state, whereas fibrocytes are in the less active state that’s linked to tissue metabolism and maintenance. Fibroblasts respond to skin trauma by producing new collagen fibres to heal the wound, and it’s this ability that plasma fibroblasting takes advantage of.

The wound healing process can be broken down into four stages:


When you suffer any form of injury to your skin, your body responds by sending platelets from your blood to the injury site to form a clot. The clot hardens and dries, forming a protective scab under which the skin repairs itself.


The inflammatory response kicks in to destroy bacteria at the wound site by increasing blood low with histamine, serotonin, and bradykinin. Inflammation can cause redness of the skin, swelling, and sometimes pain. Plasma fibroblasting is a minimally invasive procedure, but you could still feel sore and tender after your treatment.

Reconstruction and maturation

Under the scab, the new tissue starts to grow, forming a fresh, strong layer of skin. When the new skin is ready, the scab drops off and the wound is healed, often creating stronger tissue.
Plasma fibroblasting treatment uses this natural wound healing response to increase collagen and elastin production in your face. When the aesthetician applies the plasma pen to your skin, it causes micro traumas that are tiny, but sufficient to stimulate the fibroblasts.
The fibroblasts start to create new skin cells and produce fresh, healthy collagen and elastin for several weeks after the treatment session. That means your lines and wrinkles gradually improve over the course of the weeks and months following your plasma fibroblasting treatment.

What part does the plasma play in the fibroblasting process?

Plasma is a high-energy ionized gas, commonly described as the fourth state of matter after solid, liquid, and regular gas. Plasma is used in a fibroblasting device for its unique properties that enable your practitioner to create just enough damage to the skin to trigger the fibroblasts into creating new tissue, whilst not burning or damaging your skin too severely.

The top layers of your skin don’t get burned as they would be with an ablative laser treatment, and as there’s no significant trauma to your skin, scarring, infection, and pigmentation following treatment are far less likely to occur.

What does plasma fibroblasting treatment feel like?

Plasma fibroblasting treatment is a straightforward procedure, and you won’t need an anesthetic injection or sedative. You can have a topical anesthetic applied to your skin if you’re worried about any discomfort, then you simply lay back and let your practitioner apply the plasma pen to the treatment area.

It takes around 45 minutes to do the whole face, or 10-15 minutes for targeted treatment to the eyes or mouth. After treatment your skin may feel a little sore or tender to touch, and there may be swelling around the eyes, but these effects are usually minimal and clear up within a few days.

You’ll see an immediate improvement in the tightness of your skin after treatment. Small crusts form at the treatment points but should drop off after no longer than a week. Using an after-treatment balm soothes your skin and speeds up healing, and over the following weeks you’ll see the changes taking place as the new collagen and elastin builds up.

Why should I choose plasma fibroblasting to rejuvenate my skin?

Plasma fibroblasting has many advantages over other forms of treatment:

• No need for injections
• No ablation (abrasive removal of skin)
• No sutures or stitching
• Minimal downtime
• Low-risk treatment
• Fast procedure time
• Fast recovery time
• Affordable option
• Long lasting results (several months to several years)
• No scars (with professional use)
• No over-correction possible
• No thinning of the skin

Plasma fibroblasting treatment offers a more comfortable option for facial rejuvenation and skin tightening, and its use isn’t limited to the face. Plasma fibroblasting can also be used for stretch marks, skin tags, and loose stomach skin.
