What is Plasma Fibroblast?
Plasma Fibroblast, also known as Plasma Pen, is the only cosmetic treatment to use Plasma energy to reduce the volume of excess skin. Plasma fibroblast treatment utilizes a pen-like device that emits energy that interacts with ionized gas (known as plasma) on the skin’s surface. This interaction creates precise micro-injuries of the skin, which initiate the body’s wound healing response. The procedure stimulates collagen and elastin production and leads to skin tightening, lifting, and regeneration.
In addition to reducing the volume of excess skin, the Plasma Pen can also be effective at reducing acne scars, age spots, and seborrheic keratosis. Its most popular use is for the excess skin on the upper eyelid, as the only other alternative to treat this area is a surgical blepharoplasty. Plasma technology was explicitly created as an alternative treatment to surgical blepharoplasty. Plasma fibroblast treatment can be used on the face and body to treat lines, wrinkles, folds, sagging skin, stretch marks, and scars. Areas we treat with Blast-It include: under eyes; crow’s feet; forehead; brow lift; marionette lines; chin; neck; cheeks; knees; scars; nasolabial folds; around the mouth; tummy; and hands.
Who is a candidate for Plasma Fibroblast?
Those with light to medium skin tones, not prone to hyperpigmentation and would like to treat lines, wrinkles, folds, sagging skin, stretch marks, and scars.

What is the downtime after a Plasma Fibroblast, Blast-It treatment?
At Skin Deep, we define downtime as being unable to work or go out in public. Downtime is unique to every patient. Typically, plasma fibroblast treatment has 1-2 weeks of “downtime.” Warmth, redness, swelling, weeping, scabbing, and tenderness/soreness can occur. Any warmth to the area will typically resolve in 24 hours. Redness and tenderness/soreness may persist for 24-72 hours. The swelling usually begins the day after, and peaks around day 3; after the third day, swelling in the area starts to subside, and scabs start to form if they have not already. Do not pick scabs. Scabs begin to fall off around the 6th or 7th day (for face and neck).
