Fibroblast Skin Tightening Protocols
Fibroblast Skin Tightening or Plasma Pen treatment is a relatively new and popular treatment done by Skin Therapists that can take the place of some laser treatments and deeper chemical peels. This device delivers energy in the form of plasma to rejuvenate skin. The plasma, which is a gas made up of positively charged ions from the air, heats and disrupts all the way down to the dermal layer of the skin to create micro-trauma to the tissue. The surface of the skin is lightly ablated (removed) and tiny scabs form, which close the tissue and thereby protect it from infection or other risks. This process has been shown to improve facial lines, wrinkles, skin pigmentation, glycation and the loss of elasticity associated with sun damage and ageing.
If you and your skin care professional decide this treatment is right for you, it is very important to prepare the skin at least a month in advance. As is the case for every skin procedure, the healthier the skin is going into the treatment, the better the results and the less risk involved.
A month before the treatment, start a home protocol of the NeoGenesis Cleanser, Recovery serum, and Barrier Renewal Cream or Intensive Moisturizer. Repeat this simple protocol twice a day, morning and evening, to prepare the skin.
After the Plasma Pen treatment, your skin therapist will have specific instructions for you to follow. NeoGenesis Cleanser and Recovery are excellent products to heal the skin and should be used twice daily, along with any other recommendations, until all of the tiny scabs have fallen off. Once the scabs are gone, you may resume a more normal twice daily protocol. NeoGenesis Cleanser, followed by Recovery or a maintenance serum of Booster or Skin Serum, then add in the Barrier Renewal Cream or Intensive Moisturizer for complete skin rejuvenation and barrier repair.
