What Is Plasma Resurfacing?

Plasma skin resurfacing is an FDA-approved procedure that uses thermal energy to reveal youthful, rejuvenated facial skin. It differs from previous treatments because, rather than removing the surface layer of the skin, it stimulates a natural rejuvenation process below the top layer to improve skin tone and texture.

Plasma resurfacing treats the following signs of aging in the face:

  • Moderate to deep wrinkles

  • Fine lines

  • Sagging skin

  • Rough patches

  • Poor skin tone

  • Sun spots

  • Actinic keratoses

  • Other skin lesions

How Plasma Resurfacing Works

Plasma (thermal) energy is delivered deep into the skin without disturbing the skin’s surface during this 20 minute procedure. This creates ideal conditions in the lower layers of the skin and stimulates natural growth and rejuvenation factors, such as collagen. As new skin begins to develop, old cells on the surface of the skin will begin to shed to make room for the healthy ones.

Since this is a non-ablative procedure, the skin heals rapidly. Patients are able to return to normal activities and wear makeup seven days following treatment, at which time they can enjoy their revitalized appearance. The plasma energy beneath the surface of the skin continues to work over time, so continued improvement to the skin is often seen up to a year after treatment.
