Fibroblast is a skin-tightening beauty treatment that uses plasma to burn off the top layers of skin and improve facial appearance. The discharge of electrostatic energy onto the skin on the face and neck causes it to tighten and lift, shrinking wrinkles, skin bags and other imperfections. Plasma fibroblast procedures (also known as plasma pen treatments) have rapidly gained popularity as an inexpensive and non-surgical alternative to a facelift, with a far quicker recovery time and results that can last for up to three years.
Plasma fibroblast devices release an electrical charge just above the skin’s surface which burns tiny holes in the skin’s outer layer and stimulates collagen development. Discharging this electrical current onto areas of the face is a delicate operation, and there are a number of possible fibroblast side effects of varying severity. The skin may temporarily appear red and swollen, while pigmentation may also be altered. These side effects are normal, and as the skin heals, the results will improve over the next 6-8 weeks.
When a plasma fibroblast device is not used in the correct manner there are more serious risks involved, including penetrating burns to sensitive areas of skin on the face, infections and scarring. These injuries are normally caused by therapists using fibroblast devices on the skin for too long and/or penetrating too deeply, an error that can also cause nerve damage. Other fibroblast risks include skin punctures for plasma needle tips, allergic reactions and changes in skin pigmentation.
Most injuries caused by fibroblast are the result of errors by therapists due to lack of training, experience or simple incompetence. If you have been injured by a fibroblast procedure, contact our female lawyers today for free and confidential advice:
