More about Skin Tightening

Plasma skin tightening (also known as fibroblast skin tightening) is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses plasma energy to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. This treatment involves the use of a specialised device that emits a tiny plasma arc, which creates a controlled micro-injury to the skin's surface, resulting in a small dot on the skin. This triggers the body's natural healing process and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibres, which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. The result is a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. It is often considered a safe and effective alternative to traditional surgical procedures such as facelifts, as it requires no incisions or anaesthesia and has a shorter recovery time.
The device used in fibroblast skin tightening is called a plasma pen. During the treatment, the plasma pen is moved over the targeted area, creating a series of dots that form a grid pattern. Plasma skin tightening can be used on various areas of the face and body, including the eyelids, forehead, cheeks, and neck. This treatment can be used to treat many conditions. Examples of conditions can be but are not limited to; acne scars, enlarged pores, signs of ageing, cherry angiomas, seborrheic keratosis, unwanted scars, and molluscum pendulums. It is important to have realistic expectations and understand that more than 1 treatment is usually necessary.

The dermal aesthetician will plan their treatment by outlining the area with a marker.



A local anaesthetic is applied to minimise discomfort.



The dermal aesthetician will use a plasma pen to create a series of tiny dots on the skin's surface in a grid pattern to tighten and firm the skin.

While fibroblast skin tightening is generally considered safe and effective, it's possible to experience some side effects, such as redness, swelling, and scabbing in the treated area. In rare cases, patients may develop hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, which can cause the skin to become darker or lighter than the surrounding skin. However, the risk of scarring from fibroblast skin tightening is generally low, as the treatment creates very small and controlled injuries to the skin's surface. To minimise the risk of scarring or other side effects, it's essential to choose a licensed and experienced professional to perform the treatment and to follow all post-treatment care instructions carefully.

Frequently Asked Questions

IS IT A ONCE-off treatment?

The number of treatments required for plasma skin tightening can vary depending on the patient's individual needs and goals. While some patients may see significant improvement after a single treatment, others may require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results. It's important to note that the specific number of treatments required for plasma skin tightening can vary depending on the patient's age, skin type, and the severity of their skin laxity.

Does it leave scars?

Scarring is uncommon but possible result due to the unpredictability of skin. It is important to follow the aftercare instructions of your dermal aesthetician and apply the recommended products to aid in the healing process. Scarring is generally seen in individuals who disregard aftercare instructions and healing products.

How long do the results last?

The results of plasma skin tightening can last for several years, but the natural ageing process and other factors can cause the skin to eventually lose its firmness and elasticity. To maintain the results of the treatment, individuals may need to undergo additional treatments over time.

How soon after the treatment will I be able to see results?

Individuals may start to see some initial results of plasma skin tightening immediately after the treatment, but it's important to note that the full results may take several weeks or even months to become visible. Over time, the skin will begin to heal and regenerate, and new collagen and elastin fibres will form, gradually tightening and firming the skin. Patients may start to notice some improvement in the treated area within a few weeks to a month after the treatment, with continued improvement over the following months.


While generally considered a safe and effective treatment, there are some situations where plasma skin tightening may not be recommended. People who have certain medical conditions or are taking certain medications may not be suitable candidates for plasma skin tightening. These may include individuals with bleeding disorders or those taking blood-thinning medications, pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with diabetes, or lupus, individuals with active skin infections, individuals with a history of skin cancer, individuals with psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea, and individuals who are prone to seizures. Individuals with very thin or sensitive skin may not be good candidates for the treatment. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the micro-injury, the treatment is not suitable for darker skin tones.
