What is PlasmaPen also known as Fibroblasting?
PlasmaPen is a non-surgical treatment that uses plasma energy to safely and effectively treat a variety of skin concerns. The treatment is also called fibroblast therapy, or “fibroblasting,” because of the way it revs up the fibroblast cells responsible for producing collagen. The procedure delivers immediate results and can help to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and improve skin tone and texture. It can be used to treat areas such as the forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, and neck for a more youthful appearance. PlasmaPen treatments are a great option for those looking for a non-invasive way to rejuvenate their skin.
How does PlasmaPen work?
PlasmaPen converts electrical energy into gaseous diatomic molecular nitrogen and transmits that energized gas in a non-contact way to the skin’s surface from above. This causes a micro-trauma to the skin’s epidermal layer (top layers) whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conduction. This treatment is also known as “fibroblasting”. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen. At about 1mm from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed to produce an arc of plasma that discharges onto the epidermis. The PlasmaPen or “fibroblasting” is highly versatile and is very effective in smoothing out wrinkles. tightening the eyelids, and can lift and rejuvenate any area of the skin. PlasmaPen can: Improve skin tone, laxity, and texture.

When do you see results?
Some patients feel skin tightening within the first week or two after their treatment as existing collagen and elastin fibers firm up.
The scabs take about 5–10 days to fall off and reveal fresh skin underneath, which may appear pink. You may see a difference within the first 10 days, but it can take 3–6 months to see full results, since skin resurfacing relies on increased collagen and elastin production. Your body needs time to produce the new protein fibers and skin cells.
You may need a series of treatments to see optimal results.
