What is Fibroblast?
The Plasma treatment uses the fourth state of matter plasma. Tissues are treated “sublimate” and we avoid spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding areas. The principle is to ionize gases in the air to create a small electrical arch, similar to a tiny lightning bolt, with which dermal and epidermal areas, which are affected by aesthetic problems, may be treated without spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding areas. When the electrical arch plasma touches the skin surface, the heat widens the pores and is subsequently transferred into the epidermis all the way to the papillary layer which contains fibroblast cells. The result is contraction and tightening of the skin cells. Consequently, the excess skin is reduced, and the result is comparable to lift procedures or wrinkle reduction. Most, if not all, methods of skin resurfacing are based on creating a controlled skin damage, which activates its healing, and this leads to the skin remodeling and improvement in various signs of aging. Even though skin layers get damaged by plasma in a controlled manner (by heating, fragmentation, vaporization - sublimation and coagulation), they do not burn off as they largely do under ablative laser and, importantly, there is no open wound during the healing phase. This is extremely important as this approach reduces the risk of side effects such as scarring, infection, loss of pigmentation, etc.
Professional skincare products with ingredients such as retinols, alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), tretinoin or any type of vitamin A derivatives must be avoided for two weeks prior to treatment and one month after.

After Care Aftercare procedure is very important. We do not want the treated area to get inflamed or hyper pigmented.
There are three phases of skin healing:
Phase 1 - Inflammatory Response (1-5 days) *this is your downtime
Phase 2 - Regenerative phase or Fibroblastic Phase (5–28 days)
Phase 3 - New Collagen Production
• Burning sensation will soon subside.
• Anti-inflammatory/antihistamine medication can be used.
• You may experience swelling, especially around the eyes.
• Swelling usually lasts only for a few days.
• Ice packs can soothe and help reduce swelling.
• Occasional weeping will settle.
• Formation of brown/black crusts on the skin surface, DO NOT TOUCH IT!
