For those looking to restore their skin’s youthful glow, plasma skin resurfacing and many facial rejuvenation procedures are available today. The options are seemingly endless, from chemical peels and microdermabrasion to Botox and dermal fillers.
However, one treatment is making waves in the world of cosmetic surgery – plasma skin resurfacing. So, what exactly is plasma skin resurfacing? And how does it work to rejuvenate the skin?
In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of plasma skin resurfacing and why it has become one of the most sought-after skin resurfacing treatments.
What is Plasma Skin Resurfacing?
Plasma skin resurfacing, also known as plasma skin regeneration, is a cosmetic treatment that uses a device that emits highly-focused plasma energy to improve the appearance of the skin.
It is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that works by delivering thermal energy to the skin’s surface.
This process stimulates the natural healing process and promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells. The treatment is clinically proven effective, safe, and minimally invasive, making it an excellent alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgeries.
How does Plasma Skin Resurfacing work?
Plasma skin resurfacing delivers thermal energy to the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production and tightening sagging skin.
The energy delivered by the plasma treatments is much lower than traditional high-energy treatments, making it a safer and more effective option for most skin types.
During the treatment, the skin is first cleansed, and topical anesthesia is applied to the treatment area. Once the area is numb, the plasma energy is delivered to the skin’s surface using the Opus plasma device.
The energy is controlled, ensuring that the skin is not damaged during the treatment. The treatment is relatively quick, and most patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.
You may consider this treatment if you are dealing with:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull, uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
Benefits of Plasma Skin Resurfacing
There are many benefits to plasma skin resurfacing, making it a popular choice for those looking to improve their facial appearance. Here are some of the top benefits of plasma skin regeneration technology:
Plasma skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure, meaning no incisions or stitches are required. This makes the treatment much more comfortable and less risky.
Since there is no extended downtime associated with plasma skin resurfacing, most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Plasma skin resurfacing is an innovative cosmetic treatment that can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and other parts of the body.
The plasma energy delivered during the treatment stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Tightens Loose or Sagging Skin
In addition to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plasma skin resurfacing also tightens loose or sagging skin. This is achieved through the thermal energy delivered during the treatment, which triggers collagen production and promotes skin tightening.
As a result, patients can achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance without requiring invasive surgical procedures.
Improve Skin Texture and Tone
Another benefit of plasma skin resurfacing is its ability to improve skin texture and tone. The treatment can be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including uneven skin texture, roughness, and discoloration.
The plasma energy targets the skin’s surface, removing damaged and dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This can result in smoother, more even-toned skin.
Reduce the Appearance of Scars and Hyperpigmentation
Plasma skin resurfacing is an excellent choice for reducing the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation due to its ability to target and remove damaged skin cells.
This procedure uses highly-focused plasma energy that heats the skin’s surface to a precise temperature, which creates a controlled injury.
The injury prompts the skin’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen production and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
Stimulating Collagen Production
Collagen is an essential protein that gives our skin its structure, firmness, and elasticity. As we age, our skin’s natural collagen production slows down, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and fine lines. Fortunately, plasma skin resurfacing can help reverse these signs of aging.
During the treatment, the plasma energy is delivered to the skin’s surface, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process. This process triggers the production of collagen and elastin, which are two critical proteins responsible for keeping the skin plump, firm, and youthful.
One of the most appealing aspects of plasma skin resurfacing is its minimal downtime. Unlike invasive surgical procedures, plasma skin resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that requires minimal downtime.
Patients may experience some redness and swelling immediately following the treatment, but this typically resolves within a few days.
Because plasma skin resurfacing is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, the treatment can be used on various body parts, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.
You don’t have to undergo different treatments for different body areas; you can use plasma skin resurfacing for complete, overall rejuvenation.
Another advantage of plasma skin resurfacing is that the results can last up to 3 years. This makes it an excellent choice for those who want long-lasting results without the need for frequent touch-ups or repeat treatments.
This can save you money in the long run and provide a more consistent aesthetic result.
Do’s And Don’ts After Plasma Skin Resurfacing
Before undergoing any skin treatment, it’s important to understand the aftercare precautions you should take. For plasma skin resurfacing, there are a few do’s and don’ts that you should keep in mind: Do’s
- Keep the treated area clean and dry at all times.
- Wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher when outdoors to protect your treated skin from sun damage.
- Avoid direct contact with hot water for 48 hours after the treatment.
Use gentle cleansers and moisturizers on the treated area.
- Do not pick or scratch at the treated area as this can lead to infection or scarring.
- Do not use any harsh skin care treatment products such as exfoliants, retinol, or alpha hydroxy acids.
- Do not apply makeup to the treated area until it fully recovers.
Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 3 weeks after treatment.
- Avoid swimming for at least 7-10 days after the treatment, or until the skin has fully healed.
- Avoid smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke during the healing process.
Avoid any activities that cause excessive sweating as it may irritate the skin and increase the risk of infection.
Plasma skin resurfacing is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that can help restore your youthful complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of age-related damage.
With minimal downtime and long-lasting results, it is ideal for those looking to achieve a rejuvenated complexion without surgery or lengthy recovery times.
