Plasma Skin Resurfacing Treatment
What is Plasma Skin Resurfacing?
Plasma Skin Resurfacing is a non-laser treatment that uses a device to deliver energy in the form of plasma to rejuvenate the skin. PSR device is the first non-laser technology approved by the FDA and clinically proven to improve skin texture and regeneration using plasma energy. Plasma Skin Resurfacing is generally used for facial resurfacing and tightening and is different from most treatments that are available today. Plasma is an ionised gas which allows the escape of electrons. These electrons are directed and absorbed by the skin, giving up their energy as heat in the skin tissues and produce tissue structure.
Skin resurfacing is the process of removing, heating, and regenerating the skin. This treatment is generally used to reduce wrinkles, to smooth and tighten the skin, reverse signs of sun damage, acne scarring and to help correct pigmentation issues.

Before the treatment a general anaesthesia is applied to the face. Post treatment there is usually a recovery period of 7-14. The recovery time depends on the type of procedure, and the depth and intensity of the procedure performed. The symptoms after treatment can include skin redness, swelling, crusting, and peeling. Patients should avoid direct sunlight of the skin post treatment. A moisturiser should be applied several times a day to help the healing process. Healthy new collagen and elastin fibers are produced to form a new reticular architecture of the dermis. The results of treatment are proven to gradually improve after 2-12 months of treatment. The results are proven to last many years, although, two treatments are recommended for desired results.
The best candidates for Plasma Resurfacing are those who want to treat fine lines and wrinkles, have sun damage, acne scarring and pigmentation issues. Some medical conditions will make you less appropriate for skin resurfacing treatments. It is best to book in for a consultation with a Cosmetic Doctor or a Dermatologist to determine if you will be suitable for treatment. It can have a dramatic impact on the appearance of your skin, but not everyone will get the same results. If you have minor skin imperfections, skin resurfacing may not be the right procedure for you. There are many other treatments that could work better on your skin type and still improve the appearance of the skin. The cost of Plasma Skin Resurfacing starts from $1800-$4000. This cost depends on the size of the area that is being treated, skin condition and the severity of the treatment.
