Naturally Effective Solutions

Are you looking for a quick and permanent solution to wrinkles and sagging skin – without having to go through surgery? If you haven’t already heard of Plasma Pen fibroblast treatments – well, it’s about time you were introduced. Here’s everything you need to know about the treatment and what it can do for you.

Plasma Pen ‘fibroblasting’ technology has been around for some time now, and yet there are still heaps of people, desperate to reverse the effects of ageing, who know very little about it. So what exactly does the treatment do and how does it work?

How fibroblast Plasma Pen Works

Plamere Plasma Pen – a clever handheld device – harnesses energy found in the air to create its very own source of plasma energy.

The Plasma Pen doesn’t need to touch your skin to have an effect. Instead, the Pen is held a millimetre from the skin’s surface – close enough to create a small stream of energy as the plasma reacts to your body’s electrical charge.

This stream of energy, known as the ‘plasma arc’, works wonders on your skin. Every time the arc makes contact with your skin a miniscule scab is formed, while the area around the scab is instantly tightened. After the Plasma Pen has created a series of small scabs in the area you’re targeting, all you have to do is wait for the scabs to fall off to reveal your new and improved skin!

Here’s the best bit: the heat from the plasma arc also boosts your skin’s production of collagen in the affected area, meaning that your skin will continue to tighten months after you leave the clinic.

Why Plasma pen

The main reason people opt for a Plasma Pen treatment is because you only need one session to achieve the look you want.

Yes, you read that right. In most cases, a single treatment is enough to give your skin that tight, smooth texture you dream of. Plasma Pen treatment is permanent, so although it’s possible to return for an additional treatment 3 months after your first, many clients find that they only need a top-up several years down the line.

Another benefit of the treatment is that it’s completely non-invasive, and a great alternative to going under the knife. Because the plasma arc only penetrates the skin’s outermost layer – the epidermis – you won’t have to worry about the treatment permanently damaging your skin or facial muscles, and the recovery time is fairly short.

frequently asked questions

At the beginning of the treatment the area will be outlined. As the treatment progresses over the area where you may feel mild zaps as the plasma moves from the tip to the skin. The treatment length varies based on the area to be treated.

Following treatment, you can expect swelling, redness and small brown spots known as carbon crusts. These will scab over the next few days with the scabs expected to have fallen off by day 7. We recommend not wearing makeup until this occurs. You will also be provided with an aftercare cream. We recommend you continue to use this until the scabs are completely healed.

Most individuals will see immediate results after treatment with noticeable improvements occurring in the two weeks after. The skin will then continue to improve over the next 2 – 3 months with results expected to last up to 2 years.

We recommend that all clients arrange a consultation with one of our therapists prior to any treatment to determine suitability, but, it is suitable for most skin types.

If you have very dark skin (Fitzpatrick scale type 5 or 6), vitiligo or are prone to scarring this procedure may not be suitable. This procedure is not recommended to those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, immune deficient, take blood thinning or acne medication.

It is important that you inform your therapist if you have any significant medical history and/or if you are taking any medications prior to treatment. Makeup and sunscreen will also have to be removed prior to treatment. 

  • Do not wax, pluck, use depilatory creams or undertake electrolysis for 2 weeks prior to treatment, and in between treatments
  • Do not use prescription strength exfoliant creams (discuss with your therapist) for 2 weeks prior to treatment
  • Do not shave for up to 1 weeks prior to first treatment. Please shave the night before all subsequent treatments
  • Avoid tanning, including self-tanning lotions, tanning bed/booths or sun exposure, for 4 weeks prior to and in between treatments.  A sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater should be used on any area of sun-exposed skin, which you plan to treat
  • Skin Types 3 and 4 need to commence melanin inhibitors 2-4 weeks prior

Until redness has completely resolved, avoid all the following:

  • Applying cosmetics or alcohol based products on treated areas
  • Swimming, especially in pools with chemical/chlorine
  • Hot tubs and jacuzzis
  • Activities that cause excessive perspiration
  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas
  • Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs as this will cause unwanted side effects
  • Apply a sunscreen with SPF 30+ daily to sun exposed skin, AND REAPPLY AS DIRECTED BY PRODUCT INSTRUCTIONS
  • Increased photosensitivity to UV can occur when taking certain medications. During your treatment programme, if you have commenced or changed dosage with the following medications, you must advise your clinician:
  1. Antibiotics 
  2. Antihistamines 
  3. Antidepressants
  4. Herbal preparations – St Johns wort, Gingko Biloba, citrus oils, Herbal HRT therapies

Taking these medications does not exclude you from plasma treatments; however, extra precautions are applicable in these cases.

In addition to the above instructions, further individualised recommendations may apply such as:

Fibroblast post treatment

  • Application of Stratamed or an ice pack/cool compress every hour for 5 to 10 minutes may be soothing to the skin.  Continue until symptoms subside
  • Only apply Stratamed on the treatment area for the first 24 hours
  • Avoid getting the area wet for 24 hour and do not apply any cosmetic or cosmeceutical products to the area
  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas.  Apply a sun block with SPF 30 or greater daily to sun-exposed treated areas between treatments and for 4-6 weeks after last treatment
  • Recommended to use SPF daily, once the scabs have formed
  • Bathe or shower as usual.  Treated areas may be temperature sensitive.  Avoid use of strongly scented lotions or soaps, prescription strength exfoliant creams, loofah sponges, and aggressive scrubbing to treated areas during healing phase
  • Allow any blistered or open areas to heal spontaneously.  If healing is delayed, a thin coating of antibiotic ointment may be advised.  Do not pick at these areas.  Picking may result in infection or scarring.  Allow any crusting to heal spontaneously, crusting will resolve in 3 to 14 days.  Application of antibiotic ointment is not recommended for crusting
  • Best results are obtained on clients who have follow up treatment 3-6 months after their initial treatment. Your clinician will advise you when you should schedule your next appointment. It is important to adhere to this regime
