Risk and Control- Fibroblast


The last main character is fibroblasts! We all know the importance of collagen, and fibroblasts are the factory that produces collagen. In addition, fibroblasts are also responsible for scar formation.

Fibroblasts are cells that manufacture extracellular matrix and collagen and are one of the main components of the dermis. Fibroblasts play an important role in wound healing. Medical aesthetic treatments stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen, improving various wrinkles, pores, and sagging.

Possible problems and reasons after treatment Medical aesthetic treatments such as lasers and radiofrequency stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen, improving wrinkles, and sagging. However, when fibroblasts are over-stimulated, they can form scar tissue, and in severe cases, hypertrophic scars or keloids. Some patients are prone to hypertrophic scars or keloids due to genetic factors, while others may experience poor recovery due to inflammation or improper use of instruments, resulting in scar tissue after wound healing.

How to avoid Once scars, hypertrophic scars, or keloids appear, it is difficult to make them disappear completely. So how can we avoid them? Before treatment, accurately judge the skin problem and skin type. Asians and dark-skinned people are more prone to hypertrophic scars or keloids than white people, especially if they have a history of scars. The depth and intensity of treatment should be appropriate, for example, the laser power should be accurate to avoid damaging the skin and causing scarring. After treatment, be careful with care to avoid bacterial infections causing inflammation, which hinders the healing of wounds.

It is believed that now everyone understands the relationship between the problems that occur after treatment and the function of skin cells! Although it cannot be 100% avoided, the risk can be reduced with caution. Medical aesthetics is part of the medical field. With appropriate control, the effect can be ideal, and vice versa. The author does not agree with some beauty centers that use high-energy medical aesthetic instruments without medical supervision, as medical judgment and treatment are involved, and there is a certain degree of risk. Doctors will assess the patient’s condition and explain different treatment options and associated risks to patients. Melanocytes, pilosebaceous units, and fibroblasts are the root causes of the problems. With an understanding of the principles involved and accumulated experience, many problems can be avoided.
