Plasma Fibroblast Pitting, Scarring, and Pigmentation

Understanding Pitting, Scarring, and Pigmentation of the Skin After Plasma Fibroblast Treatment

Plasma fibroblast treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that aims to tighten and rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen production. However, in some rare cases, patients may experience adverse effects such as scarring, pitting, and pigmentation issues post-treatment. It is crucial to understand that these complications are not always solely attributed to the improper use of the device by the technician. There are several potential reasons for these undesirable outcomes.

Factors Contributing to Pitting, Scarring, and Pigmentation Complications

Possible Technician Mistakes:

  • Failure to Inform Client about Pretreatment Requirements: One common reason for post-treatment complications like skin discoloration (PIH) is the failure to educate the client on the importance of pretreating their skin with appropriate products based on their Fitzpatrick skin type (3 and higher). Different skin types react differently to treatments, and inadequate or no preparation can lead to adverse effects.

  • Failure to Inform Client about the Aftercare Requirements: As a technician, it is your responsibility to inform your clients about the importance of aftercare and guide them through the process step by step. By educating your clients on proper aftercare practices in person in their consultation and providing them with a printed aftercare guide, you can help them understand the necessary steps to take in order to promote healing and maintain the effectiveness of the treatment.

  • Improper Device Usage by Technician: While technicians play a significant role in ensuring safe and effective treatment outcomes, using the plasma fibroblast device incorrectly can result in scarring, pitting, or pigmentation issues. This may include incorrect device settings, improper needle handling techniques (touching the skin with needle) or applying the plasma arc for an extended period.

Possible Client Mistakes:

  • Clients do not typically seek out a technician who possesses experience and has received proper training in plasma fibroblast technology, only to then opt for the first affordable option they come across.

  • Client Non-Compliance with Pre/Post-Treatment Guidelines: Clients must adhere to specific step-by-step pre and post-treatment instructions provided by their technician. Failure to follow these guidelines can have negative consequences. It is crucial for clients to diligently follow the post-treatment instructions given by their technicians to facilitate optimal healing and reduce the risk of adverse effects such as pitting, scarring, and pigmentation issues.
  • Rubbing or Scratching: it is of most importance of not rubbing or scratching the treated area to prevent irritation and disruption of the skin’s healing process.
  • Remove Scabs Prematurely: To NOT pick or prematurely remove scabs that will form post-treatment, as this can lead to scarring and uneven pigmentation.
  • Heat Exposure: Avoid exposing the treated area to heat sources such as saunas, hot showers, or direct sunlight during the early stages of healing, as this can cause pigmentation.
  • Sun Exposure: Always shield the treated area from sunlight by using sunscreen with high SPF levels, sporting sunglasses and a hat, and avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun to prevent hyperpigmentation and skin damage.

Preventing Complications:

It is essential to educate your clients on how to prevent complications following plasma fibroblast treatment. By following proper aftercare guidelines and avoiding certain activities, clients can minimize the risk of adverse effects and achieve optimal results from their treatment.

Encouraging Communication:

Lastly, reassure your clients that they can contact you at any time if they have any concerns or questions regarding their aftercare routine or if they experience any unexpected symptoms post-treatment. Open communication between you and your clients is key in ensuring their comfort and satisfaction throughout the healing process.

By emphasizing the significance of aftercare, providing detailed instructions, and offering ongoing support, you can help your clients achieve successful outcomes from their plasma fibroblast treatment while promoting long-term skin health.
