Fibroblast: For firm and beautiful skin
Causes of aging and flabby skin Human skin is composed of the epidermis, dermis and subcutis. The dermis consists of 2 types of protein: collagen and elastin, which keep the skin strong, flexible, firm and beautiful. After reaching the age of 25-30, collagen and elastin are reduced due to the aging process. The skin change leading to wrinkles and saggy skin starts from the dermis. Aside from the aging process, what and how the skin has been exposed to, is another important factor. Skin that is regularly exposed to sunlight, UV or light easily gets damaged. The skin will soon become flabby and wrinkles will appear before time.
…Fibroblast and how it is related to unhealthy, sagging and flawed skin…
Fibroblast is a type of cell that synthesizes collagen and elastin which keep the skin strong and hydrated. They are elements of the connective tissues which keep the skin flexible. After reaching the age of 25-30, reduced fibroblasts mean less collagen and elastin. As this reduction is permanent, the body cannot create fibroblast again.
How does fibroblast contribute to skincare?
How does fibroblast contribute to skincare? Nowadays, we have many innovative methods to stimulate collagen and elastin production. But “fibroblast” directly stimulates collagen and elastin production.
How? Fibroblast is injected into the dermis at the targeted area. In most cases, fibroblast is injected at the nasolabial folds, the outer corners of the mouth, around the eyes or forehead. Fibroblast may be injected to fill cheek volume or create new cheek outline. In some cases, fibroblast may be injected to the back of the hand and on the neck. The locations for fibroblast injection may be determined according to acupuncture points to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Fibroblast is derived from stem cells of skin cells. When fibroblast is added into the dermis, more collagen and elastin can be produced. As a result, the skin becomes more tightened and flexible.
Result of fibroblast injection
The result of fibroblast injection for aesthetic purpose can last for 1-2 years, depending on the injected quantity and skincare after injection, such as use of nourishing cream and sunscreen. Good skincare can extend the result of fibroblast injection. However, lack of skincare or severe exposure to sunlight, UV or light can shorten the fibroblast injection results. Therefore, after injection, you should let the facial skin rest for 1 day. Cosmetics can be applied on the following day. After injection, you should refrain from facial treatment, such as face massage or sauna, for 2 weeks.
When will the results be clear?
After injection, the results can be seen to a certain level. The results will be fully clear in 1-3 months after injection. On average, the wrinkles at the injected areas, such as nasolabial folds and around the eyes, fade away 1 month after injection. An impressive advantage of fibroblast injection is that it hydrates and tightens the skin, and firms up the facial muscles, while allowing the treatment-taker to naturally express emotions on their face.
Combination of superior treatments
Recommendations for fibroblast injection
- After injection, the skin slightly swells. The skin will fully recover the following day.
- In case of platelet-related diseases, bleeding diathesis, frequent ecchymosis, please inform the physician so that the physician can assess the patient’s physical readiness. After injection, red marks may appear like mosquito bites.
- In case of intake of medication or vitamins which improves blood circulation, such as aspirin, fish oil, vitamin C, the patient should stop such intake for 1-2 days before injection.
