Plasma is an ionized gas that is applied to the skin’s top layer in pulses via a specialized instrument to remove old photodamaged epidermal cells and heat the skin’s lower skin levels, activating collagen and elastin production. Approved by the FDA, plasma energy regeneration treats a myriad of facial concerns.

How does Plasma Skin Resurfacing Work? 

Plasma Skin Resurfacing utilizes a unique thermal energy that stimulates a natural regenerative process of the skin. Plasma energy is delivered deep into the dermis while leaving the skin’s surface intact for several days following treatment. As the new skin emerges, the old skin will start to shed. With less trauma than ablative (melting) procedures, healing is rapid. Recovery time is minimal and easily tolerated while improvements are dramatic and long lasting. 

With the help of MAC anesthesia (Monitored Anesthesia Care) Twilight Sedation delivered by the doctor, treatment is painless. Patients can return to normal, everyday activities approximately one week after their procedure. Makeup can also be worn by day seven. Over time, repeated improvements will manifest as the plasma energy continues to work beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production. Clinical studies have shown continuous improvements for as long as one year after treatment.

What does Plasma Skin Resurfacing Treat?

Plasma skin regeneration is an ideal choice for a wide range of patients and can improve numerous conditions on the face, neck, chest, and hands: 

  • Fine, moderate and deep wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone, texture and elasticity
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Benign skin lesions/actinic keratosis
  • Wrinkles and creases around the nose and mouth
  • Age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Early jowling


What does the procedure feel like and how long does it take?

MAC anesthesia (Monitored Anesthesia Care) Twilight Sedation is administered by the doctor to ensure the patient’s comfort. A full-face treatment will take about 20 minutes.

What should I expect following treatment?

After treatment, you will have a post-operative ointment applied to the treated area. You will reapply the ointment to keep the treated area moist, as the treated area will not be washed for the first 24 hours. A mild cleanser will then be used two to three times daily to cleanse the treated area with the post-op ointment re-applied. This regimen is repeated through the seventh day, when the process will be complete. At that time, shedding of the outer layer of skin will be complete, leaving new skin in its place. Some patients may experience some localized redness after treatment. Once the skin sheds, this redness will lighten over time.

What kind of improvements can I expect to see?

You will see improvements in skin texture, tone and a reduction in wrinkles. New healthier collagen growth will improve facial contours and enhance your overall appearance.

Is the procedure safe?

Plasma skin regeneration has demonstrated an excellent safety profile in clinical studies. The treatment has not shown protracted periods of downtime, scarring, hypopigmentation or prolonged hyperpigmentation associated with other light or ablative (melting) laser treatments. It is also easier to use and control than chemical peeling agents.
