How long does the process take?
First, the technician will be applying a topical anesthetic cream, which will ensure guest comfort. Minimizing any risk of pain or discomfort. The cream will sit on the client for 30-40 minutes for numbing to take place in the treated area, depending on the clients' tolerance of pain or discomfort. The duration of the treatment, including numbing time, is 60-120 minutes. Depending on how large the area is being treated, for example, treating stretch marks on the stomach will take additional time compared to a lip or eye treatment.
Is the procedure painful?
Fibroblast-Skin Tightening is a NON-invasive procedure with a minimal 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 4–7 days for them to fall off naturally. During the procedure, the clients may feel some discomfort like a sunburn, not actual pain, depending on the treated area of the face/body.
Are the results visible immediately after the treatment?
Usually, Fibroblast is treated in 1-3 sessions. The results are visible immediately after the treatment. Still, we have to inform the client that the most visible results are shown after 3–4 weeks when the skin enters the third phase of the healing – collagen and connective tissue growth. Second session can be done after 10 weeks.
How many treatments are required for a perfect result?
It depends on the state of the clients' skin and the desired degree of correction. The client is often satisfied after only one treatment, of course, if, e.g., the wrinkles are not very deep. Still, due to the simplicity of the procedure and the affordable price, the clients opt for two or even three treatments to achieve a perfect result. The procedure may be repeated after the skin is fully regenerated, so 6-10 weeks after the process depends on the client. Generally, two sessions are required.
How long will the effect of the Fibroblast treatment last?
The results of the Fibroblast 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 because muscles are stronger than the skin, and consequently, the lines recur. Average results last from 1-3 years.
Is the Fibroblast treatment safe?
The treatment is very safe, as it is a non-surgical procedure. The procedure is based on the natural stimulation of the skin renewal process. The side effects that come with traditional surgery aren't involved. The procedure has a minimal level of pain. After the procedure, the client may be slightly red and may experience mild swelling. Small crust darker crust will form in the process of healing and fall within 7-10 days. The aftercare is of importance to ensure proper healing. Possible side effects include some inflammation, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. These side effects are rare if the client neglects the aftercare instructions from the side effects.
What are Safety and sanitation procedures?
While performing any treatment on clients, we want to ensure the client has a healthy, safe procedure and environment. In the industry of servicing, we come in contact with different clients than can have possible contagious diseases and germs. We follow all the government guidelines to ensure the clients' safety.

Day 2: The swelling typically peaks by day 2. Do not be surprised if the swelling is worse on the 2nd day. Remember: swelling is worse in the mornings and lessens throughout the day. Swelling can also spread to the under-eye area DON'T PANIC; this is perfectly normal. The upper and lower eye are all connected; therefore, the fluids from the upper eye will drain to the lower eye area. This, too, shall pass. Discomfort and pain are still present and to be expected on the second day. Avoid water and exercise.
Day 3: You will notice an improvement in the swelling, and the "dots" will start to crust/scab over. The scabs must not be picked, allow them to fall off on their own. VERY IMPORTANT! Your level of discomfort will have subsided dramatically. Minimal pain expected for the 3rd day. For those who experienced the under-eye swelling, this will still be present.

Day 5: A lot of the scabs are coming off. However, they must not be picked, allow them to fall off on their own. VERY IMPORTANT! Swelling should be complete, and scabs may still be present. The under-eye swelling should be almost entirely resolved by this point if not gone.

This would include cleaners, creams, and serums containing acids such as salicylic, glycolic, lactic, etc.) routing. It is safe for them to reintroduce these types of products at the eight-week post-treatment mark.
Day 7: Some of the scabs may be present. Also, new tissue is reforming the dermis, and epidermis starts to heal and form new tightening skin.
May I use makeup after 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 specialist gives you contains skin powder which covers the crusts and the blush.
