Anyone who has considered getting any sort of skin lift has two questions: Will it hurt? And how long is the recovery time? Two very important questions when diving into any cosmetic procedure. If the answers to these questions had you second-guessing the decision then you will be excited to hear that one of the latest trends in lift procedures can now be performed virtually pain-free with almost zero recovery time.
Fibroblasting is a new, non-surgical cosmetic lift procedure that gives patients the same results as traditional cosmetic surgeries. The procedure is basically pain-free and the recovery time is minimal. Most patients will see results immediately but full results are noticeable after 2-4 weeks. The most common areas specialist are treating include eyelid lifting or tightening, wrinkle reduction, neck tightening and reduction of stretch marks and scars.
This innovated technology uses an electrical spark to heat small sections of skin, causing the fibres to shrink and creating a boost in the production of collagen. This leads to the tightening and removal of excess skin. Using a Fibroblast handpiece, a tiny plasma flash is discharged onto the skin, leaving behind a tiny carbon crust in the form of a dot. It targets excess tissues to ensure no damage to the surrounding areas or any deeper skin layers. By following proper aftercare instructions and using an aftercare treatment like Zensa Healing Cream the dots will diminish after 5-7 days and the redness will reduce within 2-3 days.
Special post-procedure foundation is available to help conceal the dots and redness while you heal. During a face-to-face consultation your specialist will assess the best treatment plan with you and answer any questions you might have. They will explain all the aftercare instructions and it’s important to follow them exactly so you heal properly and quickly. One treatment may be all you need but in some cases an additional procedure may be performed within 6-8 weeks.
A topical numbing agent, like Zensa Numbing Cream is applied to the surface of the skin to keep the procedure pain-free and side effects are extremely rare. The procedure itself will only last about 15-30 minutes, allowing you to get back to your daily routine almost immediately.
When it comes to non-surgical cosmetic procedures, it’s hard to find something that has completely permanent results and such is the case with Fibroblasting. Although the effects aren’t permanent, they are said to be long term. Unfortunately there is no way to tell how long the effects will actually last. As we age, our skin loosens and the length of time the Fibroblasting will last depends how fast a person ages as well as multiple other factors in each person's individual lifestyle, diet and genetics.
The cost of this procedure may surprise you....the price ranges from $450 for smaller areas like crows feet and around the nasolabial fold and up to $3,500 for the entire face. So although it’s not a surgical procedure, the price tag is still pretty high and with its increase in popularity we are bound to see an increase in price as well. Remember to do your research and find a properly trained specialist for any surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
