Why You Should Consider Fibroblast Treatment At Skin By Dr Caroline

Ageing is a normal process that affects everyone. It is a process that may leave us looking tired, angry, sad, or older than we feel. Should you find yourself in such a situation, non-surgical skin improvement solutions such as Plasma Pen Fibroblast Treatment, Neogen or Botox™ are some of the techniques that can restore your skin’s tightness and youthful appearance. Usually, the results are more dramatic for invasive approaches but less risky for the non-invasive ones.

How Does Plasma Pen Fibroblast Work?

As the years go by, our skin’s dermal layer grows thinner, collagen is broken down, and the elastin fibres get worn out. These changes bring about sagging and wrinkling of the skin.

With our state-of-the-art Plasma Pen under our highly trained skin therapists, we force the skin tissue to contract virtually immediately by thermally disrupting the dermal layer, as well as activating the fibroblasts. This micro-trauma stimulates neo-collagenisation and helps release and activate essential proteins and growth factors like cytokines. Eventually, the black carbonisation dots dry, crust and fall away; this usually takes 7-14 days. However, depending on the degree of skin laxity, sometimes it may require more than a single session.

Fibroblasting produces excellent results for eyelid treatments, forehead lines, crow’s feet, necklines, and virtually all kinds of lines on the face and neck regions.

How Does Botox™ Work?

Wrinkles typically begin forming perpendicular to various contracting muscles directly beneath the skin. When Botox™ is injected into the muscles, it prevents nerve impulses from reaching the tissue, hence reducing the muscle activities that cause the frown lines to appear. Now that there is no muscle contracting beneath it, the skin can no longer form wrinkles.

Fibroblast As An Alternative

  1. Botox™ is not ideal for facial lines that remain even when you completely relax your face because such wrinkles are independent of muscle movements and are due to underlying collagen breakdown. In such a situation, most experts would usually recommend dermal fillers. At Skin by Dr Caroline, however, we offer Plasma Pen Fibroblast technology as well as Neogen nitrogen plasma therapy, which causes a subsurface trauma on a huge but low-grade scale, producing massive new collagen formation. 
  2. If you wish for a longer-lasting effect, then Fibroblast or NeoGen is the way to go. Unlike the effects of Botox™ which last several months, Plasma Pen Fibroblast effects stick around for up to 3 years, and NeoGen effects last up to 5 years, although a course of treatment would be advised initially. 
  3. Some of the temporary potential adverse reactions to Botox™ include droopy eyelids and double vision but there is no risk of this with fibroblast or NeoGen treatments. There is a small risk of some redness and swelling post-treatment, and also of the carbonisation dots from Fibroblast treatment lasting several weeks. NeoGen downtime is 3-5 days, with only some dryness and flaking of the skin. 

Is Fibroblast For You? Fibroblast Treatment can be used on most fair skin types (but not on Black or Asian skin tones), and with little to no side effects. NeoGen is suitable for ALL skin tones, including Black skin. However, the best way to be sure your skin type is suitable for treatment, and to determine the best treatment path for you, is to visit the clinic in Hertfordshire and have a full consultation with one of our advanced skin therapists.
