Fibroblast therapy, also known as plasma pen treatment, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Here’s an overview of the typical steps involved in a fibroblast therapy procedure:


The process typically begins with a consultation between the client and the practitioner. During this discussion, the client’s skin concerns, expectations, and medical history are reviewed. The practitioner assesses whether the individual is a suitable candidate for fibroblast therapy.

Cleansing and Numbing:

The targeted area is thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, or debris. A numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Grid Creation:

The practitioner uses a specialized handheld device, often referred to as a plasma pen, to create a series of controlled micro-injuries on the skin. These micro-injuries are made in a grid pattern and trigger the body’s natural healing response.

Plasma Arc Application:

The plasma pen emits a small plasma arc, which vaporizes the skin at the targeted points. This process creates tiny crusts or scabs on the skin’s surface.

Stimulation of Fibroblasts:

The controlled injury caused by the plasma pen stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. This process leads to skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Formation of Crusts:

After the treatment, small crusts form at the micro-injury sites. These crusts act as a protective barrier during the healing process.

Healing and Recovery:

Over the following days, the crusts naturally slough off, revealing newer skin underneath. The skin continues to heal, and collagen production increases, contributing to improved skin texture and firmness.

Post-Treatment Care:

Clients are provided with specific post-treatment care instructions, which may include avoiding sun exposure, applying recommended skincare products, and refraining from picking at the crusts to promote optimal healing.

Benefits of Fibroblast Therapy:

  • Skin Tightening:
    • Fibroblast therapy is known for its skin-tightening effects. The stimulation of collagen and elastin production leads to firmer and more lifted skin.
  • Reduction of Wrinkles and Fine Lines:
    • The procedure can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, particularly in areas such as the forehead, crow’s feet, and jowls.
  • Improvement of Skin Texture:
    • Fibroblast therapy contributes to improved skin texture by promoting the regeneration of new, healthier skin cells.
  • Non-Invasive and Minimal Downtime:
    • Unlike surgical procedures, fibroblast therapy is non-invasive, and the downtime is relatively minimal. Clients can typically resume their regular activities within a few days.
  • Versatility:
    • Fibroblast therapy can be used on various areas of the face and body, including the eyelids, neck, décolleté, and hands.
  • Long-Lasting Results:
    • While individual results may vary, many individuals experience long-lasting results from fibroblast therapy. The benefits continue to develop over weeks to months as collagen production increases.
  • Natural-Looking Results:
    • The gradual healing and collagen production contribute to natural-looking results, avoiding the pulled or artificial appearance sometimes associated with surgical procedures.
  • Minimal Risk of Scarring:
    • The controlled micro-injuries created during the procedure are designed to minimize the risk of scarring, and any scabs that form are typically temporary.

It’s important to note that while fibroblast therapy has shown promising results for many individuals, individual responses can vary. Potential risks and side effects include redness, swelling, and pigment changes, and these should be discussed thoroughly with a qualified practitioner during the consultation phase. Consulting with a licensed and experienced practitioner is crucial to ensure a safe and effective fibroblast therapy experience.
