Fibroblast skin tightening
Plasma fibroblast therapy is an aesthetic procedure healthcare providers offer as an alternative to lasers, injections or surgical therapies to tighten and improve the appearance of skin. A relatively new innovation in the beauty industry in North America, Fibroblast Skin Tightening has been used in Europe for several years.
Plasma fibroblast therapy targets fibroblasts. These are collagen– and protein-producing cells in the dermis, the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer. Fibroblasts play an important role in helping skin wounds heal as well as maintaining skin firmness and tightness. Plasma fibroblast therapy uses a pen-like device that discharges a high-frequency electric current to small areas of the skin. The plasma tip doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer. The effects of Fibroblast Skin Tightening do not revert. The results of the fibroblast tightening treatment are as permanent as surgery. This soft surgery offers phenomenal results at an affordable price. VELO Med Spa is a National Pioneer in the industry and the only Fibroblast Practitioner servicing South Florida.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
While the procedure may vary slightly based on where you’re having the treatment, the basic steps typically include:
Cleansing the skin and applying a topical anesthetic (numbing) cream. You may need to wait about 30 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect. Treating the designated skin area with the plasma pen. The pen will create small arcs of micro-currents that make small scab-like dots on the skin. A professional will remove the numbing cream and apply a cooling gel to minimize the tingling and burning sensation whenever possible.
Once the procedure is completed, you can expect the small dots to scab over and fall off after about 1 week. Over the next couple of weeks, as your skin heals, it should appear tighter and firmer. In addition, the procedure isn’t without side effects. Examples of side effects include redness, swelling, mild hypopigmentation (light spots), mild hyperpigmentation (dark spots) & skin peeling, and crusting.
