- What is plasma fibroblast skin tightening?
Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening is a skin rejuvenation and tightening treatment. It is a combination of two treatments, namely Phi Micro- Needling and Phi-ion. To achieve the best results both treatments should be done in order to prep the skin. First Micro-Needling and then target the lines and wrinkles – Phi-ion.
- What is this treatment recommended for?
- Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
- Minimising pore size
- Eyelid correction
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles – crow feet and marionette lines
- Age spots
- Non-surgical blepharoplasty
- How does the treatment work?
The procedure is aimed at stimulating microcirculation and the natural processes of collagen production and regeneration.
It makes existing wrinkles less visible due to deep skin hydration and stimulation of collagen production making the area firmer and resistant to further deepening of skin folds and lines.
Plasma is generated when the atmospheric gas between the instrument tip and the skin is ionised. This causes a small electrical arc which causes the contraction, tightening and shortening of the skin fibres, which will result in a reduction of the skin surface, therefore improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and scars.
The visible results are similar to those seen with surgery, but without the need for a single cut or stitch.
- Who is this treatment recommended for?
Microneedling is recommended as a preventive anti-aging treatment for clients between 30 and 40 years old, once every 6 months.
For clients older than 40, it is recommended as a solution for instantaneous improvement of skin conditions in series of 3 treatments with 2 or 3 weeks in between, once to twice a year, if needed. This depends on each individual and the results they would like to achieve.
Plasma is one , possibly two treatments with a 4 month interval. Every year may be necessary depending on your goals.
- What areas of the body can you do this treatment on?
This techniques can be used to treat the face, neck and cleavage
- What happens during the treatment?
During the treatment, the skin is treated with a gel solution of vitamins and hyaluronic acid that ties metabolic water to itself and leads to deep hydration. The second step is creating special plasma damages in the wrinkles that have a double effect. The first effect is instant skin tightening and the second one is focused creation of fibrosis tissue that will smooth the skin surface and prevent further deepening of the existing unevenness.
7. How many treatments are needed and how long will it take to see results?
Results are seen instantly, although the best appearance is seen after 3 weeks. 3 treatments at 6 weekly intervals are often required to give the results similar to a surgical procedure.
- Is it painful?
A topical anaesthetic is applied.
- How long does each treatment session take?
The procedure normally takes about an hour to perform.
- Are there any side effects?
Despite the application of the most advanced and top quality products, allergic reaction is possible but rare.
You are likely to feel a burning sensation after treatment, but that will usually disappear in the space of a few hours. A soothing cream is applied and provided as aftercare for you to take home and continue to use
During and after the treatment temporary swelling, redness and/or itching may occur. These symptoms are temporary and typically subside within 12-72 hours.
- How long do the treatment results last for?
The results are expected to last approximately one year.
- What to expect after the treatment?
Following the treatment, the skin will feel hot, like a sunburnt feeling with redness, and little carbon crusts where the tip has been fired to the skin. These scabs will heal and fall off within 5-7 days, leaving fresh, pink skin underneath. There may also be swelling depending on the area of treatment, but that should only last a couple of days. As opposed to surgery, most people can return to work the same day, as there is very little downtime, although you will have swelling and possible bruising. The eyelid skin however is the most delicate and prone to excessive swelling.
- What aftercare is needed?
Over the next 7 days please pay attention to the following:
- Do not wash your face for 12 hours after the treatment.
- Within the next 3 days following the treatment, cleanse skin with a gentle cleanser and follow with provided aftercare, 3 times per day. After the third day, apply sunscreen 3 times per day over treated areas.
- Please do not use aggressive hygiene products (fragrances, soaps, etc.) or any other creams except the ones provided to you in order to prevent possible infections or allergic reactions.

- Do not apply makeup on the facial skin including eyelids.
- In the first week after the treatment avoid public bathing, sunbathing, tanning salons, sauna, beauty treatments and intense sports/training accompanied by sweating or contact with dust.
