Please see diagram below.Fibroblast Treatment is not advised for those with very dark skin. This is because there is a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment. I highly recommend a patch test prior to proceeding if you have a darker skin tone.

Fibroblast Treatment is not advised for those with very dark skin. This is because there is a higher risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) following treatment.

How To Prepare

THE MOST IMPORTANT PREPARATION YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER IS YOUR TIME DURING THE FIRST WEEK FOLLOWING YOUR TREATMENT. GIVE CAREFUL THOUGHT BEFORE SCHEDULING YOUR APPOINTMENT. THIS IS IMPORTANT AS IT IS LIKELY THAT YOU WILL PREFER TO STAY OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE WHILST YOU ARE HEALING AND SWELLING HAS SUBSIDED. HOWEVER THIS MAY NOT BE AN ISSUE TO YOU IF THE VISUAL EFFECTS OF THE TREATMENT ARE OF NO CONCERN.

PLEASE ATTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH CLEAN SKIN NO MOISTURISER, MAKEUP/TANNING PRODUCTS ON THE TREATMENT AREA, ESPECIALLY NO MASCARA ON LASHES IF THE EYE AREA IS BEING TREATED.

IF YOU ARE HAVING AN UPPER AND LOWER EYE-LIFT TREATMENT ON THE SAME DAY, IT IS ADVISABLE TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS NOT TO DRIVE YOURSELF.

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT SUN PROTECTION OF SPF 30-50 BE USED DAILY FOR AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE FIBROBLAST TREATMENTS.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS WITH INGREDIENTS SUCH AS RETINOLS, ALPHA-HYDROXY ACIDS (AHAS), TRETINOIN OR ANY TYPE OF VITAMIN A DERIVATIVES MUST BE AVOIDED.

STAY OUT OF THE SUN, TANNING SALONS AND REFRAIN FROM USING ANY SELF-TANNING PRODUCTS FOR THREE WEEKS.

How Much Downtime Will I Experience?

DOWNTIME DEPENDS ON YOUR WORKING SITUATION AND LIFESTYLE. YOU CAN RESUME YOUR NORMAL WORK IMMEDIATELY BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN THERE IS NO DOWNTIME. THE TINY PLASMA FLASH CAUSES ‘CRUSTS’ TO FORM ON THE SKIN GIVING THE DISTINCTIVE DOTTING EFFECT. YOU CAN ALSO EXPERIENCE SIGNIFICANT SWELLING IN THE AREA TREATED, PARTICULARLY IN THE EYE AREA. THE SWELLING WILL DIMINISH OVER A 2-5 DAY PERIOD AND THE CRUST (BROWN DOTS) THAT OCCUR ARE GONE ON AVERAGE BETWEEN 5 – 7 DAYS.

THEY MAY ALSO BE COVERED OVER WITH A SPECIALLY FORMULATED MINERAL MAKE-UP TO REDUCE THEIR VISIBILITY. THESE ARE COSMETIC ISSUES ONLY, TECHNICALLY THERE IS NO REAL DOWNTIME IF THESE VISUAL EFFECTS ARE OF NO CONCERN TO YOU

What Can I Expect At My Treatment?

ON THE TREATMENT DAY, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT NO MAKE-UP IS WORN ON THE TREATMENT AREA. A NUMBING CREAM IS APPLIED TO THE TREATMENT AREA AND LEFT TO TAKE EFFECT FOR 30-40 MINS. DURING THIS NUMBING PERIOD, THERE WILL BE ADDITIONAL TIME TO FURTHER DISCUSS TREATMENT AND ANSWER ANY OUTSTANDING QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. WHEN THE AREA IS SUFFICIENTLY NUMB THE TREATMENT WILL BEGIN. DURING THE TREATMENT YOU WILL FEEL SOME HEAT AND MINOR IRRITATION, BUT MINIMAL OR NO PAIN! TREATMENT TIME CAN LAST FROM 45 MINUTES (INCLUDING NUMBING PERIOD) AND UP TO SEVERAL HOURS DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE TREATMENT AREA. YOU WILL BE PROVIDED WITH AFTERCARE INSTRUCTION AND A REVIEW APPOINTMENT WILL BE SCHEDULED AS SOON AS 6 WEEKS LATER.

How Many Visits Will I Need?

IN MOST CASES ONLY ONE TREATMENT IS REQUIRED. HOWEVER, DEPENDING ON THE AREA OF THE FACE OR BODY BEING TREATED AND INDIVIDUAL CONDITIONS AND EXPECTATIONS ADDITIONAL TREATMENTS MAY BE NECESSARY.

ADDITIONAL TREATMENTS CAN BE SAFELY DONE AT 8 WEEK INTERVALS AFTER INITIAL PROCEDURE.
