How long will the effect of the Fibroblast-Skin Tightening treatment last?
The results of the Fibroblast-Skin Tightening treatment are permanent and may be visible for years. But we should acknowledge that the aging process is continuous and thus the skin ages every day after the procedure and this cannot be stopped. The results of this method are permanent, but when we talk about mimic facial lines (worry lines) these may recur quickly because muscles are stronger than the skin and consequently the lines recur. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after eight weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after eight weeks for maximum results. Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can increase lasting results. Some of these include smoking, alcohol consumption, prolonged sun exposure, and other factors that increase skin aging.
Is Fibroblast-Skin Tightening treatment safe?
The treatment is very safe, as it is a non-surgical procedure. It has a negligible amount of possible side effects and serious complications alike. The procedure is based on the natural stimulation of skin regeneration, so the excesses which may be seen in the world of traditional surgery are not possible.

Crusts which occur after the treatment are part of the treatment and will fall off after 4–10 days. Swelling after treating the area around the eyes is normal and will disappear after 3–5 days, depending on the client’s sensitivity.
May I use makeup after the Fibroblast-Skin Tightening treatment?
Do not use makeup after the treatment, as it generally is not sterile. First 5–6 days after the treatment, until the crusts fall off, use the antiseptic product and the aftercare cream, applying it softly to the treated area. When the crusts fall off, you may apply some makeup if necessary, as the cream the therapist gives you contains skin powder which covers the crusts and the blush.

How many treatments are required for a perfect result?

Is the procedure painful?
Fibroblast-Skin Tightening is a NON-invasive procedure with a minimum level of pain. It is virtually painless, as the treated area is numbed before the treatment. After the treatment, the treated area might be slightly reddish and some patients may experience some swelling (only for areas around the eyes). At the site of each spot, a small crust will form. They should not be touched and you should wait for 4–5 days for them to fall off naturally. During the procedure, you may feel some discomfort, not actual pain, depending on the treated area of the face/body.
Is there a possibility of Post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation?
✓ Yes, there is. SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is of key importance and an essential part of aftercare.
It can be caused by infestation, allergic reactions, mechanical injuries or reactions to medications, phototoxic eruptions, burns, bruising and inflammatory skin diseases from eczema/dermatitis family.
Again, darker skin is more prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
This type of pigmentation can darken with exposure to UV light and with the use of various chemicals and medications, thus it is highly important to point out to the client that after the treatment direct contact with sun rays (UV radiation) and use of chemical products on the treated area should be avoided.
How to treat hyperpigmentation?
✓ The client can use Pigment-reducing Concentrate with B-Resorcinol which intensively lightens and reduces hyperpigmentation and dark spots. The best protection against worsening hyperpigmentation is to use cream which block hyperpigmentation and contain sun protection SPF of 50 or higher and that protects against UVA and UVB rays.
Is it allowed to peel off the carbon crusts? No, never.
