As we age, the outer layer of our skin gets thinner, our bodies produce less collagen, and the strength and elasticity of our connective tissues start to give way. While all of these are natural signs of aging, many of us aren’t ready to accept sagging skin, pesky wrinkles, or annoying age spots.
Maybe you’ve tried firming creams or facial exercises to no avail. Perhaps you’ve investigated surgical procedures, but the thought of going under the knife is nerve-wracking and expensive. You feel young and vibrant – but how do you get your skin to match that?
This is where plasma fibroblast treatment may help.
Plasma fibroblast is a revolutionary technique designed to eliminate the signs of aging without the use of lasers, injections, or surgery. It does this by tightening up and lifting sagging skin through the use of highly targeted microcharges of plasma energy. These microcharges of plasma energy cause a superficial level of heat damage that stimulates tissue regeneration and contraction (or tightening).
In particular, this therapy targets a type of cell called fibroblasts. These cells are located in the tissue right below your outermost layer of skin, called the dermis. The main function of fibroblasts is to produce collagen and proteins, so they play a key role in healing wounds, maintaining skin firmness, and keeping skin tight.
Plasma fibroblast therapy can effectively treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
Once treated, your skin’s natural healing abilities kick in and start creating new fibroblast cells, resulting in tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin.
Plasma fibroblast is growing in popularity, largely due to it being more affordable than surgery and having a much shorter recovery time.
The process is actually pretty simple. Here’s what you can expect during plasma fibroblast therapy:
The overall procedure takes between 30-60 minutes. After your procedure, you’ll head home to recover. You’ll notice that those small dots on your skin will scab over and come off after the first week. Some patients may notice certain side effects, such as redness, swelling, or mild changes in their pigmentation. These usually go away within 5-10 days.
Within the next couple of weeks, your skin should start to appear firmer and tighter as it heals. Some patients notice results after the first procedure, but for others, it can take a couple of treatments. Results can typically last from 9-18 months (lifestyle choices, such as too much sun or smoking, can negatively impact this).
Please note that while some companies sell plasma pens for at-home use, we strongly recommend against this. Going to a trained healthcare practitioner is key to minimizing potential burns, side effects, and recovery time.
Plasma fibroblast is a fairly new, non-surgical therapy that can help reverse the signs of aging. It’s less costly than traditional cosmetic surgery and touts a shorter recovery time. One Agora Integrative Health has a team of highly trained practitioners who are especially skilled in plasma fibroblast therapy. We’d love to talk more with you to see if this breakthrough procedure is the right fit for you.
