Plasma Pen Fibroblast Therapy

Plasma fibroblast therapy is a non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening, and rejuvenation procedure designed to combat wrinkles, loss of collagen and sagging skin. Plasma fibroblast therapy targets fibroblasts. These are collagen and protein-producing cells in the dermis, the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer. Fibroblasts play an important role in helping skin wounds heal as well as maintaining skin firmness and tightness.

Plasma fibroblast therapy uses a pen-like device that discharges a high-frequency electric current to small areas of the skin. The plasma tip doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin along the wrinkle lines. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer. This process recreates collagen type I, the collagen we have in abundance when we’re younger. As we age, this is replaced by collagen type III, a loose and unorganized collagen.

The tip of the pen never touches the skin (and the needle like attachment is a sterile, disposable, one-time use product). The pen is held above the skin and a tiny plasma arc connects the tip of the device to the surface of the skin. Using plasma waves, the old collagen is removed by sublimation (evaporation), and fibroblasts are stimulated to produce new collagen.

The targeted skin contracts and is essentially eliminated without any cutting, which results in the tightening and shrinking of the targeted skin. This advanced procedure helps to revive natural levels of collagen, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin needed for fresh youthful skin. A series of tiny brown spots are strategically placed to attain the desired result. The skin around the dot tightens instantly, pulling the cells closer together.

Am I a good candidate for Plasma Pen Fibroplasty?

The best candidates for this procedure are people with mild-to-moderate skin wrinkling concerns.

You shouldn’t receive plasma fibroblast therapy if you:

  • are breastfeeding
  • are pregnant
  • have an allergy to topical anesthetic preparations
  • have an infection at the treatment site
  • are using isotretinoin for wrinkles or acne
  • have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring
  • have anemia
  • have rare inherited illness called glucose-6-dehydroenase deficiency
  • have Methemoglobinemia (affects blood pigment levels)
  • have Atopic dermatitis

Or use the following medications:

  • Sulphonamides (a large group of synthetic bacteriostatic drugs that are effective in treating infections caused by many gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms. They are used in treating many urinary tract infections.)
  • Other local anesthetics
  • Mexiletine or amiodarone (treatment for uneven heartbeat)

If you have concerns whatsoever, we encourage you to talk to a healthcare provider prior to the procedure to discuss potential concerns you may have given your overall health condition.

Procedure Overview – Plasma Fibroblast Therapy

Pre-Treatment Instructions:

It is recommended that sun protection of SPF 30-50 be used daily for at least two weeks prior to the Fibroblast treatment(s). Skin care products with ingredients such as retinols, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), tretinoin or any type of vitamin a derivative should be avoided. We advise you to stay out of the sun, tanning salons, and refrain from using any self-tanning products for three weeks prior to your procedure. It is also advisable to refrain from taking NAIDS (ibuprofen) for 7 days prior to your procedure.

Blood Thinning Medications & Product Use

Although blood thinning is not considered a listed contradiction in this procedure, it can impact the results. There are also “natural” blood thinners that you may be digesting which can also impact the results of this procedure. We need the skin and body to be well hydrated with good oxygen flow.

We recommend you refrain from the following medications/substances for at least 3 days prior to your procedure:

  • Alcohol
  • Ibuprofen
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Cayenne peppers
  • Vitamin E
  • Garlic
  • Cassia cinnamon
  • Ginkgo biloba
  • Grape seed extract

How do blood thinners impact fibroblast treatment?

When the blood is thinner two things can happen; we can have more bleeding occur because the skin becomes more sensitive and is therefore prone to bruising. This entire procedure centers around plasma. We need the skin and body to be well hydrated with good oxygen flow. If you have elevated levels of blood thinner in your system, we may not get a real good plasma lift (plasma coagulation) in the skin or the carbon crust (dot), which can lead to suboptimal results.

Pre-Treatment Highlights:

  • Use sunscreen for 2 weeks
  • Avoid skincare treatments
  • Stay out of the sun 2 weeks prior
  • Do not use tanning beds before treatment
  • Avoid blood thinning substances for at least 3 days

Prior to your service, Bombesque will mail you the following items:

  • Pre-treatment & Aftercare Instructions
  • Pre-treatment Products: Numbing Cream, Face Mask, Vinyl Gloves 

Day of Treatment:

On the treatment day, it is recommended that no make-up is worn on the treatment area. You may take an antihistamine 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and for 2-3 days following the appointment.

While the procedure may vary slightly based on where you’re having the treatment, the basic steps typically include:

  • Cleansing the skin and applying a topical anesthetic (numbing) cream. You may need to wait about 30 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect.
    • Numbing cream should not be used if you are allergic to any of the following ingredients:
      • Lidocaine
      • Tetracaine
      • Prilocaine
      • Polyoxymethylene hydrogenated castor oil
      • Carboner 974P
      • Sodium hydroxide
      • Purified water
    • Numbing Instructions: Self-Application
      • If Bombesque has provided you with a numbing cream kit to apply to yourself before your appointment, please following the instructions below.
      • Your numbing cream kit will include the following items:
        • Vinyl Gloves
        • Numbing Cream (contains Lidocaine/Tetracaine)
        • Face Guard and/or Adhesive Saran Wrap (for body parts other than face)
      • Instructions
        • Put on vinyl gloves. When apply the numbing cream to the areas being treated, please use the vinyl gloves included in your kit to avoid the spread of bacteria from your hands to your face or other areas being treated.
        • Once numbing cream has been applied, place the face guard or saran wrap over the numbing area’s being treated and I’ll take over after that.
      • When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the fibroblast tip, spaced closely together. You may feel some heat in the treatment area, which may be uncomfortable and slightly irritating.
      • Treatment time is usually between 10-40 minutes per area, depending on the size of the area.


Immediately after treatment the area may be red and mildly swollen with small carbon crusts (spots). You may experience a sensation like a sun burn which will likely last a few hours. Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days.

The carbon crusts will lift within 5-12 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results gradually improve over the course of the following eight weeks and, as your skin heals, it should appear tighter and firmer.

Generally, the results of plasma fibroblast therapy are excellent. However, a perfect result is not a realistic expectation. Most clients see the positive effects of treatment immediately after the first treatment, but it typically takes eight weeks to see the full results of the procedure.

For some, an additional treatment may be required after eight weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can increase lasting results. Some of these include smoking, alcohol consumption, prolonged sun exposure, and other factors that increase skin aging.

Potential Side Effects: We encourage you to discuss any concerns you may have with a medical practitioner.

  • redness
  • swelling
  • mild hypopigmentation (light spots)
  • mild hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
  • skin peeling and crusting

Aftercare Instructions:

Following the treatment, we will provide you with thorough aftercare instructions to follow to ensure you receive the best results.

Swelling, scabs and redness are part of normal skin renewal. The effects last on average from 7 to 20 days depending on the treatment performed.

It is recommended:

  • To wash the treated area with Skin Script Green Tree Citrus Cleanser, both in the morning and in the evening.
  • To avoid exposure to sunlight and cover the treated area with 50+ SPF foundation until the redness disappears to avoid hyperchromia (darker spots).
  • Do not remove the crusts for any reason, which must fall independently to avoid depressions and irregularities of the skin.

In darker-skin clients such discolorations are more likely to occur.  In those with fair or sensitive skin, the redness may persist longer.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments required will vary according to the area being treated, skin laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most patients see results instantly and will continue to improve over the course of the following eight weeks.

Further treatments can be carried out to achieve better results, but appointments must be spaced out by 8-12 weeks per area. Before deciding a second session in the same area is needed to get better tightening results make sure that at least two months have passed because it will take that long to get true results.

"It's been years since I've left a salon feeling genuinely satisfied with my hair color."

Jessica Dohrmann
It's been years since I've left a salon feeling genuinely satisfied with my hair color. I was so excited when Bridgette turned my chair to show me the final result, it was better than I had ever expected! I'm not the easiest client either, I didn't bring a picture like she had asked, I sometimes question what I am even asking for, but Bridgette listened to me through a mess of words and doubt and somehow knew exactly what I wanted. Finally, I am happy with my hair and I didn't realize until now how good that feels. I will definitely be going back and will be recommending her to everyone. It is so nice to have found someone local here in Queen Creek too.
