An Introduction to Plasma Fibroblast Therapy

Plasma Fibroblast therapy is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of any area of the body that has laxity of skin. This revolutionary treatment softens the appearance of flaws using plasma energy, without causing great discomfort. This therapy is a non-surgical, active answer to the clients’ need for a beauty treatment that does not have associated surgical risks: There is no anesthesia (other than topical numbing), stitches, bruising, or high risk of infection. In comparison, typical aesthetic surgeries are far more expensive, risky and complicated, while the end result is comparable to Plasma Fibroblast therapy. Some of the most common flaws that can be corrected with Plasma Fibroblast therapy include frown lines, loose skin, scars, acne, crow’s feet and stretch mark irregularities.  

Plasma Fibroblast therapy will begin with the technician numbing the treatment area with a topical numbing agent, then making small spots on the skin with a hand-held plasma probe. These spots are treated with plasma energy. This energy instantly contracts the treated skin tissues, which tightens the skin and leaves a small carbon deposit. The rapid use of plasma energy causes quick results, without the risk of damaging the skin tissues surrounding the treatment area, since it is only affecting the epidermal layer. The entire appointment should take no longer than an hour and a half, depending on how many areas are treated. 

The client may experience a tingling sensation on their skin shortly after plasma fibroblast therapy is over, but it should go away after a few hours. It is perfectly fine to return to work while dealing with the side effects, but some clients still choose to take a few days off. They will experience the sensation of a sunburn for up to 2 days. Advise your client to keep the skin clean, moisturized and avoid extreme temperatures while the skin is healing. We have created the most efficacious aftercare products to make sure the client heals comfortably and quickly, with the least amount of risk. 

Due to the nature of this procedure, the client will see a reduction in wrinkles and skin folds, almost immediately. It will take the skin time to completely heal from plasma fibroblast therapy. The client may notice the final result at any point after the skin is fully healed. Note that skin retraction continues to improve up to 3 months. The length of time before the desired results are achieved will depend on the severity and size of the treatment area. Once the final result is revealed, the client will be able to enjoy improved, beautiful skin for several years.

Setting Up Your Space for Success

Treatment Area: 

It is most important that you present the best impression of yourself, whether that is in your own treatment room, in a salon or at a client’s home. The following information should help you to ensure the best impression is always provided. 

Reception:

 

The first impression your client receives will depend upon the manner in which she/he is greeted and the surroundings they are placed into. A professional atmosphere should be presented at all times, with sufficient room to discuss the record card/consultation form and write observations. Your client should feel comfortable, warm and relaxed. 

Calm efficiency and organization should be clearly apparent to the client from her first contact with you, as this will instill confidence in the professional skills you will be offering. It is essential that you have an excellent "reception" technique, together with a knowledgeable response to any questions the client may raise. 

A tentative enquiry, if dealt with in a calm, efficient and knowledgeable manner, can become a regular client booking. Client satisfaction will result from fulfilling the requirements of the client in a professional and efficient manner. You should refrain from pressuring a client into taking treatments or buying product, you should recommend and educate, not push. 

Work Area: 

Preparation of the working area prior to the client’s arrival is vital, not only to provide the right impression to the client, but also to ensure that the treatment provided can be completed in the given timeframe. 

  • A therapy room should be relaxing and welcoming. The working area should have a good supply of  light. When you do use artificial lighting it should not be too bright and should be indirect so that it does not shine into your client’s eyes. If you light candles always remember to extinguish them! 

  • The room you work in should be adequate in size and allow you to walk freely around your client. 

  • The floor should be of a material that is easily cleaned or vacuumed and is not slippery, noisy or cold. 

  • Always make sure that the room you’re working in is clean and tidy. Remember, first impressions last. If your toilet and the room it’s in are not clean, it gives your client the wrong impression of you and could lead them to question your own hygiene practices. 

  • A comfortable chair should be provided with suitable back support for the client. Ensure that the height of the chair is suitable for your height as if the chair is too low; you will not be able to stand straight to perform the treatment and may cause damage to your back in the process. You need to be comfortable and relaxed yourself to provide a good treatment. 

  • Temperature and ventilation: Your room must be warm enough for the client not to become chilled but not so warm that it’s uncomfortable for you to work. It should be ventilated to prevent it becoming stuffy.  

  • A small bowl should be provided for the client to put her jewelry in when she undresses so that there can be no loss following the treatment 

  • It is important to have on some low, calming music in the background to further relax the client. 

  • Refreshments: Always offer your client a drink of water before leaving. Water is key to expedite healing 

  • Aftercare 

 

At the end of the day, if your client has a relaxing and pleasant treatment, they are more likely to come back. 

At your station you need to have the following: 

  • Gloves

  • Numbing Cream

  • Chlorhexidine Gluconate Wipes

  • Saran Wrap

  • Barbacide

  • Wooden Sticks

  • Make-up Remover

  • Before Product

  • Cortisone

  • Aftercare Placenta Stem Cream

  • Sunscreen

  • Saline or Sterile Water

  • Cotton

  • Tissues

  • Gauze

  • Masks

  • LED Red Light

  • Device Cleansing Wipes

  • Plasma Device

  • Sterile Plasma Tips

 

2.02

Professional Ethics and Confidentiality

Professional Ethics: 

It is essential to develop a trusting and confident relationship with your clients by using a professional attitude and an excellent work standard. This can only be achieved through hard work and practice. Your knowledge and skill base will be the deciding factor for a client returning to you for treatments. 

This intensive training course will provide knowledge of the treatment, which will help you to provide an excellent service; but this is only the beginning, and it will take many hours of practice to master the technique. You must be prepared to spend the time to develop your skills and techniques to enable you to always provide the best treatment possible to your current and future clients. 

Your standards must be exemplary at all times. You should always strive to be the best you can be – your work promotes not only yourself, but also your salon and colleagues. So, ensure that you always provide treatments to the best of your ability, in a totally professional manner. You should always work to the following Code which is recognized within the industry: 

  • Always work within the law 

  • Do not ever treat or claim to be able to treat a medical condition – any concerns should be referred to the clients’ general practitioner (GP) 

  • Client confidentiality should be respected at all times 

  • Always show respect for related professions by referring clients appropriately, i.e. to a GP, Chiropodist etc. 

  • Always maintain high standards of hygiene and safety in your work 

  • Ensure that, where necessary, certain treatments are only undertaken with written permission of the client’s GP 

  • Always be respectful and helpful where possible to other beauty therapists 

  • You should never try to poach other therapists clients, or undermine their work/ability. 

  • You should always undertake your work in a professional manner, particularly when working with members of the opposite sex 

 

Client Confidentiality: 

 

You can help maintain client confidentiality by: 

  • Carrying out the consultation in private, or as privately as possible 

  • Ensuring that all consultation and treatment records are stored in a secure place and never left lying around 

  • Never discussing a client’s personal details or their treatment with another person

Hygiene

 

Safety and hygiene standards should always be as high as possible whenever any form of treatment is carried out. It is vital that hygiene and cleanliness are prime considerations; not only for the satisfaction of the client but also to comply with legal requirements.  

Cross contamination must be avoided at all times. By thoroughly checking for contraindications it is possible to avoid working on people who have obvious infections. However, clients are not always aware that infection is present. It is therefore necessary for the safety and well-being of both client and practitioner that sound hygiene measures are strictly adhered to. 

When performing any type of therapy treatment where very little equipment is used, there are a range of  hygiene measures that should  be implemented: 

  • Surfaces and equipment should be washed daily with antiseptic wipes/solution. 

  • Tools should always be sterilized. 

  • Floors should be swept and mopped daily. 

  • Caps and lids on bottles and jars should be immediately replaced when you have used them to avoid spillage. 

  • Towels and any linen should be changed for each client. 

  • First aid kit should be available 

  • All paper waste should be disposed immediately into a covered container and disposed at the end of each day. Waste bins should be disinfected daily. 

  • Toilets and sinks should be cleaned daily with the appropriate chemicals. 

  • All oil spills should be wiped up immediately. 

  • Disposable gloves should be available and used during treatment. 

  • Use antibacterial hand wash between each treatment, or wash your hands. 

  • Wipe massage chair / couch with antibacterial spray after each treatment 

1. You should refrain from pressuring a client into taking treatments or buying product, you should recommend and educate products and services, not push. This is an example of excellent Reception Technique.
2. It is vital that hygiene and cleanliness are never considerations; its only for the satisfaction of the client but not to comply with legal requirements. 
3. The result of eyelid tightening is not comparable to the blepharoplasty and should not be proposed as an alternative to surgery. This is because dramatic results can only be achieved using surgery.
4. One essential requirement is to be sure that you are fully insured to provide treatments. Therefore, you MUST hold a Professional and Public Liability insurance, which must be in place before you practice on the general public or charge for your service.
5. The rapid use of plasma energy causes damaging results, without the risk of damaging the skin tissues surrounding the treatment area, since it is only affecting the epidermal layer.
6. The client may notice the final result at any point after the skin is fully healed, but that skin retraction continues to improve up to...
7. Temperature and ventilation: Your room must be warm enough for the client not to become chilled but not so warm that it’s uncomfortable for you to work. It should be ventilated to prevent it becoming stuffy.  
8. Always discuss a client’s personal details or their treatment with another person
