Fibroblast is a brand new, advanced means of plasma skin tightening - one that delivers surgical-level results with absolutely nothing invasive involved whatsoever. Expect tightened, lifted skin as well as the dramatic visible reduction of excess skin ruching, such as crow’s feet, hooded eyelids and smoking lines.
If it’s one-off, radical results without the hassle and costs associated with traditional surgery that you want, Fibroblast is truly a game changer in the skin tightening game...
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Fibroblast is a method of skin tightening which makes use of plasma flashes emitted by a handheld device. These plasma flashes (also known as 'electrical arcs') are discharged from the tip of a handheld wand, utilising the voltage in the air between the tip of the device and the skin.
Whilst the wand never comes into direct contact with the skin, it triggers the skin's healing response by creating temporary injury to the soft tissue. This injury is caused by the electrical arc reaching the cells, causing them to shrink and contract. This is what is responsible for the significant tightening of the skin.
Fibroblast is rapidly growing in popularity on the cosmetic circuit due to it's long list of advantages over traditional surgery. Not only is it dramatically more cost-effective, it also involves absolutely no incisions or stitching, has considerably less downtime and lets you return to normalcy without hassle!
Fibroblast is currently one of the quickest and most effective ways to smooth out any areas of the face or body which have been subject to fine lines, wrinkles and/or sagging. It can even make light work of erasing things such as skin tags, moles, uneven pigmentation, age spots and sun spots.
This innovative treatment is perfectly precise, making it great for targeting very specific (and delicate) areas such as the eyes and the neck. With results apparent almost immediately after treatment, there really is no better option for those with super busy schedules in search of a quick cosmetic lift.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Firstly, a numbing agent is applied to the treatment area to help ensure that the patient does not experience any discomfort. Once cleansed and the numbing agent has had time to take effect, treatment can begin.
Your practitioner will pass a small handheld device across the treatment area. This device emits a small plasma flash (also known as an electrical arc) from its tip, leaving a small polka dot impression on the skin.
The wand works by utilising the voltage in the air between the tip of the device and the skin, and whilst the Fibroblast wand never makes direct contact with the skin, the plasma flash leaves behind a series of these dots, which later heal, leaving the skin firmer and tighter.
Fibroblast is great for treating an array of problems of the face and body. Fibroblast can tighten loose stomach skin after pregnancy, diminish stretch marks, improve the appearance of acne scars and eradicate skin imperfections such as skin tags and sun spots. The treatment can also tighten hooded eyelids, improve lower eyebags, smooth crow's feet, rejuvenate the décollete, and even erase the appearance of smoker's lines.
With Fibroblast, you can expect tighter, dramatically-lifted skin and an undeniable improvement to overall skin health.
Results of Fibroblast are permanent and noticeable almost immediately after treatment. Having said this, it is worth noting that - just like any surgical procedure - it cannot do anything to fend off any further signs of ageing that may develop in later years.
To optimise your Fibroblast results and maintain the positive effects for as long as possible, you should be careful to limit things such as intense sun exposure, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as well as making sure to practice diligent skincare.
On average, we expect one session of Fibroblast to take up to 30 minutes to complete.
Having said this, the duration of your particular treatment can vary depending on the size of the treatment area. For best results, 2-3 sessions may be recommended after your initial session - these are typically spaced up to 12 weeks apart.
The most notable side effect of Fibroblast is what is known as 'carbon crusting'. This is the scabbing that forms on the skin as a result of the plasma flashes. It forms in a polka dot pattern where contact was made during treatment, and is a perfectly normal stage of the healing process. If kept adequately hydrated during the recovery stage, this scabbing should last no longer than 7 days or so. You will be instructed how to best care for the skin following treatment by your practitioner.
Some more sensitive skin types may also experience some mild swelling during the first 3 days of downtime, however this typically clears entirely by day 5.
Side effects beyond this are very extremely rare, however in these rare cases, it is worth noting that there can be a minute risk of temporary pigmentation, infection and/or scarring.
Treatment is entirely non-surgical. The majority of patients claim that there is absolutely no pain during treatment, however some more sensitive skin-types may report 'minimal discomfort'. All patients are treated with a powerful, topical anaesthetic before undergoing Fibroblast, and therefore the area being treated is thoroughly numbed beforehand.
There is no medically-decreed downtime associated with Fibroblast, however, the skin will need to replenish and we estimate the average recovery period to take around 7 days. This will, of course, vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
During this time, you can resume regular activities in line with the advice given by your practitioner, who will provide you with aftercare recommendations. It is important to try not to remove or scratch at the carbon crusts, and patients should avoid sports or swimming during this time also.
After Fibroblast, there is nothing medically preventing you from returning to normality straight away.
Having said this, some patients do choose to take a week or so from work to allow the healing stages of treatment to occur. This is because the skin must turn over a cycle, and therefore will develop some scabbing known as 'carbon crust'. This should take around 1 week to fall away and it is advised that patients do not try to cover this with makeup. Because of this, some feel more comfortable taking up to 7 days of designated 'downtime'.
