Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening

As we age, the supportive networks of skin fibers that once were abundant and flexible begin to give way to an unwelcome laxity. This can cause looseness in the face and neck. Until recently, surgical interventions such as facelift or liposuction were the only way to eliminate this excess skin. Now, however, we offer non-invasive Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening in our Ottawa office. This no-downtime treatment uses plasma, an ionized gas, to tighten skin without surgery or causing damage to surrounding tissues. This tissue retraction and tightening creates results that are often comparable to invasive surgery.

How does Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening work?

During the Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening treatment, an electric arc, also referred to as "plasma flash," forms between the tip of the treatment handpiece and the patient's skin. Through a process called sublimation---which turns a solid directly into gas---the targeted tissues are instantly tightened.

What does Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening treat?

Fibroblast Plasma Skin Tightening is able to treat a number of areas non-invasively, including the following:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow's feet
  • Upper eyelids
  • Lower eyelids
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Upper lip
  • Lower lip
  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Abdomen and navel

What happens during treatment?

Fibroblast treatments at Ottawa Plastic Surgery last approximately 1 hour. The treatment is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia, and there are no incisions or blood. While the treatment device itself never touches the skin, the plasma flash creates a tiny dot upon contact. These superficial "carbon crusts," which form a symmetrical grid over the treatment area, are part of the normal healing process. They fall off on their own between 7 and 10 days after treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities right away, with minimal discomfort.

Most patients achieve their desired results after just a single treatment. However, depending on the area being treated, the condition of skin before treatment, and the individual's response to treatment, an additional treatment may be required after 6 to 8 weeks to achieve maximum results.
