Plasma Fibroblast Therapy
What is Plasma Fibroblast Therapy?
We are pleased to offer Plasma Fibroblast Therapy in Leeds. We are specialists in Fibrobast Plasma Therapy and have many years of Experience.
Plasma is the fourth state of matter: Liquid, Solid, Gas and Plasma. The principle is to ionise gases in the air to create a small electrical arc, similar to a tiny lightning bolt, with which the areas affected by aesthetic problems may be treated, without unwanted damage to surrounding areas.
The plasma causes instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres causing shortening and tightening of skin fibres, thus resulting in the reduction of the skin surface. The final result is an improvement of the firmness and tension of the skin (lifting effect). Since Plasma energy affects the deeper dermal layers, the result is a lifted contour, a decrease in deep wrinkles, thicker and firmer skin. Plasma promotes new collagen protein which causes the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin.
The local fibroblasts stimulate the collagen formation by heating the dermis and it then acts as a new deep foundation for the skin. This produces further delayed tightening, which only becomes evident slowly over the next few months.
Jett Plasma is one of the most interesting developments in facial rejuvenation during the last few decades. It has been developed as an alternative to the classic ablative resurfacing (typically done with a CO2 or Erbium laser) where some of your skin is literally burnt off. Fibroblast synthesize connective tissue fibres including collagen and elastin Jett Plasma is designed to improve skin tone and texture, giving it a brighter, more contoured and more youthful appearance Fine lines and deeper wrinkles are reduced, hyperpigmentation and discolouration reversed and more severe skin complaints treated effectively.
Jett Plasma energy is directed through the tip of the hand piece onto the targeted area, and the energy is absorbed by the target damaging the cell, which encourages regeneration and regrowth. This is what enables collagen renewal and the remodelling of the internal architecture of skin, smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and tightening sagging, loose skin, allowing new, fresh skin to be produced. This is also works as what is known as a “biological dressing”, allowing the skin cells underneath to regenerate, creating the perfect conditions for continuous improvement which can not only improve skin tone and texture, but can also reduce scarring, improve a number of common skin complaints and increase skin contouring.
Why does causing trauma to the skin cause skin rejuvenation?
- Inflammation starts minutes after injury increasing blood flow to the area activating fibroblast cells, stimulating them to lay down collagen cells.
- Next the fibroblast cells spread inwards towards the trauma leaving behind collagen and elastin cells.
- Increased levels of type 3 collagen, fibroblast cell will continue to produce new collagen for several weeks after the trauma, they also begin the process of collage alignment and cross linking which is part of the process of reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
- The most important part of the inflammatory response after trauma is applied to the skin. When having skin rejuvenation treatments is the release of growth factors. The job of growth factors is to send a chemical message and how this is understood by the skin results in collagen stands laying down.

Plasma Fibroblast Therapy Lip Flip
One of the most popular non-surgical treatments today is the lip flip plasma pen procedure. A lip flip refers to using a plasma pen to reshape and contour the upper lip to provide a poutier look. It is not really like the lip is being flipped upward. What is truly happening is that the upper lip gets turned upward, or is everted, so that more of the ‘pink’ lip becomes visible. When this occurs, the upper lip looks fuller – as if you had a bit of injectable filler placed in a very tasteful manner. Additionally, the cupid’s bow of the upper lip becomes more defined as the lip is flipped up – further contributing to a more cosmetically pleasing upper lip appearance.
Plasma Pen, results in a lip flip? Well, first you have to understand how plasma energy is used in cosmetic surgery. Plasma is considered the 4th state of matter and results from gas that is energized. The plasma pen, is a revolutionary cosmetic tool that allows for creation of plasma energy at the tip of the device, which can be used to treat skin. When skin is treated with plasma energy, a tiny arc is created between the tip of the pen and the skin surface. This plasma arc never actually touches the skin. It simply interacts biologically with a 1-2-millimetre area of skin to create a channel of heat that goes down through the skin to the dermal layer. Visually, this is seen as a small brown and/or black dot on the surface of the skin. But you won’t see any blood or cut on the skin surface.
Some people will refer to this as a form of micro-trauma created by the plasma pen. In each location where the plasma arc is created (as noted by the individual dots on the skin), the underlying fibroblasts within the dermal skin layer will be stimulated to create new, more youthful collagen. That is why this technology is commonly called fibroblast skin resurfacing. This collagen stimulation process can take upwards of weeks to months. But there is also a more immediate skin tightening that can be visualized as the plasma pen treatment is performed – in fact, you can see the skin tightening right in front of your eyes in many cases. If you create multiple plasma arcs within a certain region, each ‘dot’ of energy transferred through skin will cause some degree of tightening, or skin contracture. If enough dots are created in one area with a plasma pen, they will cumulatively tighten the skin to an even greater degree.
If the plasma pen is used across specific areas of the upper lip it can predictably tighten the skin enough to pull it in an upward direction. That means the vermillion border of the upper lip will be lifted up in the direction of the bottom of the nose, as is shown in the adjacent photo diagram. Since this results in the upper lip being everted, it almost appears as if the inner lip is flipped up and out – thus the term a lip flip procedure. The end result aesthetically is a lip that is shorter in length with more pink show that mimics a fuller, more pouty upper lip.
