Fibroblast (Plasma Skin Tightening) is not suitable for everyone. If you are considering Plasma Skin Tightening, you should be in good health at the time of the appointment, with no pre-existing health conditions. Ideal candidates for this cosmetic procedure are those with fair to medium skin tones with lax, crepe-like skin around the eyes, neck, tummy, mouth, or targeted area for the treatment. Fibroblast will not effect fat cells. A good candidate must not be prone to keloid scars, have diabetes, a healing disorder, lymphatic draining issues, history of hyperpigmentation, wear a pacemaker, be pregnant or be breastfeeding.
This treatment is only recommended on light-medium skin tones (FitzPatrick Scale 1-3 and sometimes 4). If you are a number 4, you may get hyper-pigmentation, which isn’t necessarily permanent and could be reversed with such treatments like IPL. People with number 3 and 4 complexions are recommended to get a patch test in treatment area(s) to see how your skin responds. Also, Asian skin of any type is more prone to hyper-pigmentation so a patch test is suggested. Anyone with a darker complexion (5 and 6) is at risk for hyperpigmentation. Regardless of your FitzPatrick Skin Type or if you are not sure if you are prone to hyperpigmentation, a patch test is recommended for everyone as hyperpigmentation and/or texture is always a risk for everyone
