Getting Rid of a Saggy Midface or Jowls Using the Plasma Arc

Is your skin heading south? Ugh!! As we age we tend to lose elasticity, fat, muscle and bone. Sagging skin that is loose and wrinkly definitely makes you look older. If you used to have nice cheeks and now have jowls, you might want to read on. There are many ways to help rejuvenate your skin. Facials, peels, skin rolling, micro-needling, cosmetic acupuncture, injectables, micro-current and cosmetic surgery to name a few. We provide all of the above (except surgery). We’d like to talk about the newest one that we’ve added to our arsenal, fibroblast therapy using an electrical plasma arc.

What’s the process?

The electric arc produces a short flash when the probe comes close to the skin. This flash causes a micro burn to the epidermal layer (top dead layer) of your skin. The microdamage that was intentionally caused by the flash registers in your brain and the brain sends out a message that it needs to repair that damage. It produces collagen and elastins and makes your skin newer, healthier and more toned and tightened. The treatment “burn” causes a temporary de-hydration of the skin; this results in immediate tissue retraction and lifting. The treatment is topical and is performed without causing bleeding and more importantly without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.

Once the area starts to heal, collagen and elastins start to grow giving the new skin, a tighter, more toned look, taking years from your appearance. If a facelift sounds terrifying to you and you are looking for something a lot less painful and evasive, then fibroblast treatments may be for you. If you are looking for a subtle difference after each treatment, you are a great candidate for this type of service. If you want to look 10-20 years younger after you’ve healed, surgery is probably the best thing for you.

This type of treatment can tighten skin in most areas of the face and many areas of the body. Getting rid of jowls can be accomplished by using the plasma arc in the jowl and chin area to rejuvenate the skin in the midface.

All appointments are final and cannot be rescheduled without 48 hours notice. Please double-check your schedule to ensure that you are available during the time of your booking. Appointments also require a $100 non- refundable deposit to secure your spot. This deposit is then deducted from your final amount on the day of your procedure. A patch test and aftercare products are also a part of your first visit. Your procedure will be performed AFTER your patch test has successfully healed.


Deposits are  forfeited if the client does not to show up to their appointment or cannot commit to their original scheduled appointment without 48 hours notice.  Anyone who is more than 15 minutes late for their appointment may be asked to reschedule, and it will be considered a cancellation. That much lost time will not allow the technician to complete the procedure properly. The time cannot be “made up” by rushing or omitting important steps.  

For consultations and appointments, call 520 275-4510 for Tucson’s only plasma fibroblast spa! It is necessary to do a patch test for each visit to see how that area will react to the treatment. The healing process will show how you well reacted and will give us a better idea of how many sessions you will need to achieve your goals. Your first actual treatment will be about 2 weeks from your consultation and patch test. Please remember this info as you are scheduling your appointment time.

We do offer discounts on packages.
