What is Fibroblast Blaze Needling?
Fibroblast Blaze Needling Skin Tightening is the only cosmetic treatment to use plasma to eliminate excess skin. It is known for it’s success with Non Surgical Eye lift, Scar Lifting Treatments, Wrinkle reduction, Tummy tightening and so much more.
The term “soft surgery” is often used to describe the treatment because it delivers results similar to surgery without a scalpel, stitch or bandage and minimal downtime. It is a minimally invasive procedure with a much lower risk and at a more affordable price then actual surgery.
Plasma Skin Tightening is a relatively new innovation in the beauty industry in North America but has been used for a number of years in Europe. The extremely accurate device works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its metal tip and the skin, to form a plasma charge. An electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted skin. The tissue retraction and tightening gives results that are comparable to invasive surgery by physically reducing the volume of skin in the surrounding area.
Plasma arc causes superficial damage to the upper dermal layer of the skin transmitting heat to the lower layers. This causes new skin to generate collagen and elastic fibers for the next 90 days. The results improve texture, tone and clarity of the skin.
What areas can be treated?
-Plasma Skin Tightening is able to treat a number of imperfections without any actual cutting of the skin.
-Eyelids- upper/lower and excess upper eyelid skin.
-Sunspots, Age spots and skin tags (always have a medical Doctors written consent prior to removal – have them confirm the spot or tag is not a more serious condition
-Pitted or acne scarring
-Diminish Stretch marks (1 year or older, must be silver or white
-Tightening of loose crepey skin
-Smoker lines/wrinkles around the mouth
-Full neck lifting of crepey or loose skin
-Treatments for Face or Full Body
How long do the results last?
As Plasma Skin Tightening is more than a simple tightening treatment, skin is actually removed by sublimation of the skin so the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of Fibroblast Blaze Needling treatment are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further aging process. The positive results can last your client years, depending on the area treated.
The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen by the 8th week as the skin has had time to go through a full regenerative cycle.
For some, an additional treatment may be required after 90 days for optimal results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.
Those planning on treatment should also be aware that their skin type and genetics can also have an effect of the length of beneficial effects.
** Treating muscle related wrinkles will not have the same lasting power as removing excess skin. Due to the repetitive movements of the muscles (forehead and smile lines) The results are not expected to last as long as areas like the upper eyelid or tummy tightening. We suggest recommending your client follow up treatment with Botox to freeze the muscles and prevent them from creating the wrinkle **
How many treatements per area are recommended?
The number of treatments required will vary according to the condition being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Appointments must be spaced out over 90 days.
Fibroblast Blaze Needling has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature as it only effects the epidermis. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 5-10 days following treatment.
What are the Contraindications?
-The client should be in good health at the time of the appointment, with no preexisting health conditions.
-If the client displays signs of cold or flu the treatment should be rescheduled.
-Clients skin should not be inflamed in the area we are treating prior to procedure.
-Clients prone to keloid scars are not ideal candidates.
-Clients with diabetes, healing disorders or lymphatic draining issues should not undergo treatment.
-Clients with a sunburn/sun tan should postpone treatment for up to 8 weeks or until tan/burn signs disappear.
-Clients who have a history of Hyperpigmentation are not ideal candidates.
-The client must not display Herpes Simplex Virus (Cold sores/Fever blisters) in the area being treated. Your client will need to reschedule their appointment if they are experiencing an outbreak. If they have experienced Herpes Simplex Virus (Cold sores/Fever blisters) in the past they must see their Medical Doctor and obtain a prescription for Valtrex and begin taking it 3 days before treatment and for 4 days following treatment.
-If the client wears a pace-maker avoid treatment with electrical arcing as the currents may disrupt the rhythem of their device.Do not treat Clients who are pregnant or breastfeeding. They are not ideal candidates.This treatment is only recommended on Fitzpatrick Scales 1-4 . Anyone past this scale is at risk for Hyperpigmentation
What to expect the day of the treatment?
On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area.
We suggest taking an anti-histamine (such as benadryl) 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.
-A numbing anasthetic creme agen is applied and left to take effect for up to 30 minutes. When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the plasma tip, spaced closely together. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating.
-Treatment time is usually between 10-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
Immediately after treatment the area will be red and mildly swollen with small crustations and discolouration. You may experience a sensation similar to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 3-5 days. The crustations/discoloration should resolve within 5 -12 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results are seen instantly after the treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following the next 90 days. Essentially there is downtime, but it is considerably less then with surgery.
Following treatment you will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results. You will be given a specially developed post care product to promote healing and sooth the initial discomfort. In the week following treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) use only a mild PH balanced soap (Dove) and water to gently cleanse the treated area ensuring it is completely dry. Avoid rubbing the area.
What is the cost of treatment?
Fibroblast Blaze Needling Skin Tightening is certainly more affordable than cosmetic surgery and the prices of treatment depends on the area treated. When comparing a treatment to the cost of traditional, open surgery, it is about 50 – 75% less. Price lists and pricing is available on our booking tab or text message our coordinator 310-853-0744.
