PLASMA FIBROBLAST SPECIALIST IN INDIANAPOLIS
Plasma Fibroblast targets the skin’s fibroblasts, which offer support to the body’s elastin and collagen production and play a key role in our body’s hydration.
The concept behind Plasma Fibroblast is similar to microneedling, as we are retraining your skin to look and act younger. Plasma Fibroblast is a more aggressive treatment and requires more downtime. Plasma Fibroblast results in a pattern of carbon crusts on the skin’s surface and you must refrain from wearing makeup until these crusts disappear.
What is Plasma Fibroblast?
Plasma Fibroblast is a non-surgical skin-lift. We are able to target areas that have decreased in elasticity with age. This treatment is ideal for eyelid lifts, crows-feet, forehead wrinkles, jowls, lip lifts, belly button lifts, and stretch marks.

WHAT PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW
What should I expect post Plasma Fibroblast?
Immediately after treatment you will be red, slightly swollen, and tender. This feels like a sunburn with the heat sensation. You can also experience a tingling sensation, as well as itching.
Each individual electrical arc results in carbon crust. These are the small, dark polka dots that you see in the post treatment images. The healing process can take up to a full 7-9 days; this varies depending on the area treated and how quickly your skin heals. While these carbon crusts are healing, you can NOT wear makeup. Carbon crusts need to be treated similarly to a wound and kept very clean. Due to this, the downtime for Plasma Fibroblast is more excessive.
It is overly important that you allow these crusts to heal and flake off on their own; avoid using exfoliations, washing aggressively, scratching and picking as all of this can result in pigmentation issues and scarring.
Sun exposure following Plasma Fibroblast is very risky. We are generating brand new skin that is very sensitive to UV rays. You must wear a very high SPF if you will be in the sun; a big hat and sunglasses are recommended in addition to an SPF. If you are exposed to UV rays, the chances of hyperpigmentation is very high, meaning the carbon crusts turn into something that looks very similar to darkened sun spots.
The key to a successful healing is keeping your skin clean, cool, calm, and dry!
What facial products should I use post Plasma Fibroblast?
You will be sent home with an after-care packet, including three products to use immediately after treatment. Once those products are gone, you need to use very gentle products while the carbon crusts are still present. Once you have completely healed, feel free to continue your normal skin care routine and don’t forget to incorporate a high SPF.
