Fibroblast: For firm and beautiful skin
Causes of aging and saggy 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. These cells form part of the connective tissues which promote skin flexibility. After reaching the age of 25-30, reduced fibroblasts mean less collagen and elastin. Because this is a permanent reduction, he body is unable to produce more.
How does fibroblast contribute to skincare?
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 are determined according to acupuncture points to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Fibroblast is derived from the 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 tighterned and more flexible.
Result of fibroblast injection
The result of fibroblast injections for aesthetic purpose can last for 1-2 years, depending on the injected quantity and skincare practices after injection, such as the use of nourishing cream and sunscreen. Good skincare can extend the result of fibroblast injection. Conversly, lack of skincare or severe exposure to sunlight, UV or light will shorten the fibroblast injection results. An important part of the procedure is aftercare, post-injection you should allow the facial skin to rest for 1 day, making sure that you do not apply cosmetics or follow your usual skincare routine. This can be resumed on the following day. After injection, you should also 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 on a superficial level. The maximum results will become apparent within 1-3 months post 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, without diminishing the patient’s ability to naturally express emotions on their face.
Combination of superior treatments
After fibroblast injection, the physician can also apply premium HIFU (high frequency focused ultrasound), rejuvenating innovation or long pulse laser, to jointly stimulate collagen and elastin production. These methods maximize the effect of fibroblast injections. With adjunctive treatments, you may repeat the injections frequently. However, if you seek the utmost beauty, you can repeat fibroblast injections every 6 months without side effects. Fibroblast injections are the most effective solution to rejuvenate the skin - tenhancing natural beauty and youth by 5-10 years.
Recommendations for fibroblast injection
- After injection, the skin may become slightly swollen. This will be fully recovered by the following day.
- In case of platelet-related diseases, including bleeding diathesis or, frequent ecchymosis, please inform the physician so that he may assess the patient’s suitability. In these cases, post injection, red marks may appear like mosquito bites.
- If the patient regularly consumes medication or vitamins which enhances blood circulation, such as aspirin, fish oil or, vitamin C, tintake should be refrained for 1-2 days prior to injection.
