Plasma fibroblast Skin Tightening & sculpting
How it works:
Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening (PFST) Is a revolutionary treatment that allows us to eliminate the excess tissue that causes wrinkles and sagging skin. When the skin is exposed to plasma energy, it goes through a process called sublimation. Sublimation is the action of turning matter from a solid to gas bypassing the liquid stage. In other words, we are “evaporating’ the excess tissue without the application of heat in a very superficial manner. The sublimation effect causes an instant contraction of the tissue, eliminating wrinkles and sagging skin. Additionally causing controlled trauma to the skin stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen cells that we lose as we age, which help the skin look much younger and rejuvenated. The plasma pen produces amazing results instantly and continues to improve over the following 8-12 weeks.
This treatment not only significantly removes and reduces fine lines and wrinkles, it also helps eliminate skin imperfections like skin tags and moles, helps reduce skin discoloration, sun damage, stretch marks and scars, and lifts the skin giving an instant eyebrow lift or creating a poutier lip by lifting and tightening the surrounding skin.
What to expect during the procedure:
The day of your procedure please show up with clean skin and no makeup on the treatment area. A topical numbing cream with be applied to the area for 30-50 minutes. Once the skin is sufficiently numb we will start the session. Depending on the size of the area the treatment can last 15-60 minutes although larger areas could take longer. During the treatment you may feel slight discomfort similar to a mild sunburn depending on the sensitivity of the area being treated.
Once the treatment is complete you will see tiny brown/black spots on the area treated. These dots will last 5-7 days. It is very important that you keep the treated area clean and dry and only apply products recommended or provided to you. Also you want to be cautious of picking, scratching or rubbing off the tiny scabs to prevent scarring or infection. You may also notice some redness and swelling that normally goes away in 24-72 hours. Once all the tiny crusts fall off you will notice brand new pink skin. The pinkness will continue to lighten and your skin will continue to produce more collagen over the next 8-12 weeks. Once your skin is fully healed you will come in for a follow up appointment. In most cases patients will only need 1 session to notice significant results but some may need additional treatment for deep lines and wrinkles or very loose skin.
How long does it last?
The results are permanent, although it does not stop the natural aging process. You will notice lasting results that will last for years as you would with cosmetic surgery. The best way to insure the longest lasting results is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, avoid smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and prolonged sun exposure.
The Fitzpatrick Scale
The fitzpatrick scale was developed in 1975 as a system to classify skin type according to the amount of pigment or melanin your skin has. It also can predict your overall risk of sun damage and skin cancer. This classification is semi-subjective considering the wide range of skin tone, eye color and hair color. It is possible that you won’t meet all of the characteristics of any one type, so you should go with the level that comes closest to your features and coloring.
Why is this important when choosing Plasma Skin Tightening & Sculpting?
PFST is one of the safest anti aging treatments on the market but Fitzpatrick scale levels IV-VI have an increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypo pigmentation. If you have a darker a skin tone it is required to have a small patch test to see how your skin heals to determine if you are a good candidate for this this treatment.

Megan did an amazing job on my brows. I get compliments all the time! She has saved me so much time and energy already with not having to fill them in with makeup every day, as I used to over-pluck terribly for years.

Plasma Pen VS Cosmetic Surgery:
- *No injectable anesthetic required
- *No scalpel, no cutting or ablation to the skin
- *No stitches or scars
- *Very low risk procedure with minimal side effects
- *Little to no downtime
- *No thinning of the skin
- *More uniform than ablative resurfacing using lasers
- *No asymmetries and no risk of overcorrection
- *More affordable
Am I a good candidate?
Although PFST is a very safe procedure, if you are pregnant or nursing you should avoid this procedure.
If you have a darker skin tone you may not be a candidate for this procedure. This is because darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypo-pigmentation (light spots) following the treatment. PFST requires a consultation before scheduling an appointment so if you are unsure a small patch test can be done to determine if this treatment is right for you.

- *No botox 21 days before and after your procedure
