As a newer type of skin therapy, plasma skin resurfacing is a unique, non-laser facial rejuvenation technique that reduces signs of aging and delivers facelift-like effects with little downtime.
What does the procedure feel like and how long does it take?
General anesthesia 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.
