What to expect
Although there may be some minor differences among individual patients, here is what you can generally expect during your fibroblast treatment:
Wear a good sunscreen before going out for the two weeks prior to your fibroblast treatment. Avoid the use of retinol and self-tanning products.
On the day of treatment
Do not wear makeup to your fibroblast treatment appointment. It may be helpful to take an anti-histamine about 30 minutes before your treatment to help minimize swelling. You can also take it for two or three days after your treatment.
Your provider will apply a numbing agent to your skin so that you are as comfortable as possible during your fibroblast treatment. You may notice some heat against your skin that may be somewhat uncomfortable and slightly irritating. Depending upon the size of the treatment area, the total treatment time can take anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes.
