What Are the Benefits of Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

Smith Medical Group offers plasma skin resurfacing using the Opus Plasma platform as an advanced solution to rejuvenate your skin without surgery. This minimally invasive procedure removes damaged skin cells and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, resulting in an improved appearance and better skin health. Potential additional benefits of this treatment at our Chicago, IL facility include:

  • Minimizing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Evening out skin texture
  • Improving skin tone and color
  • Shrinking visible pores
  • Lessening acne scars and other types of scarring
  • Limiting the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Achieving a youthful look

Can I Have Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

There are some different elements to keep in mind when considering which level of resurfacing regimen is ideal for your skin. This treatment is great for anyone who is disappointed with their facial condition. Plasma resurfacing procedures can help smooth these cosmetic irregularities. In addition, plasma fibroblast works great for patients who have rough spots, peeling skin, or different issues. This procedure might not be the best option for those who have more pigmented skin or current acne problems.

Plasma Skin Resurfacing Procedure Technique

While getting your treatment, you will sit in a dedicated procedure chair while the fractional plasma handheld device glides over your face, directly targeting the desired spots for enhancement. You will feel the heat from the applicator, followed by cold air from Opus Plasma's built-in cooling device. The microplasma energy serves to get rid of dead and damaged skin cells while prompting increased collagen growth. Depending on the needs of your skin type, the treatment will be adjusted for the best results.

What To Expect After Plasma Skin Resurfacing

Following your plasma skin resurfacing procedure at our practice, you'll initially experience a sensation similar to a sunburn. This discomfort is a normal part of the healing process and should subside within a few days, making way for a rejuvenated appearance. You'll notice a more youthful and refreshed look as your skin recovers. It's important to understand, however, that while the results can be long-lasting, plasma skin resurfacing does not halt the natural aging process of your skin. Continued care and protection against environmental factors, such as sun exposure, are crucial to preserving the benefits of the treatment.

Dr. Cabugason was wonderful. It had been several years since I had been to the doctor and she made me feel very comfortable. She listened to all of my concerns & addressed every one of them. Her staff was friendly and super helpful. I'm glad I found a new doctor that I can trust.

Plasma Skin Resurfacing FAQ

How much does plasma fibroblast skin rejuvenation cost?
Plasma skin rejuvenation costs fluctuate based on the treatment type you get. During your consultation, we will understand your aesthetic concerns and desires prior to explaining the different types of plasma resurfacing available. Then, we can help you choose your resurfacing treatment and discuss pricing.

What is the recovery time after microplasma skin resurfacing?
Our team will give you recommendations on how you can speed skin healing after a fractional plasma rejuvenation treatment. The top rule is to not peel or pick flaking skin. Doing this could create long-term damage, like scarring. You need to skip all methods for hair removal in the treatment area, including waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. In addition, you need to apply sun protection or wear a hat if you're outdoors. Our team can recommend an ointment to help ease your skin.

How often should I have plasma fibroblast skin resurfacing sessions?
The initial fractional plasma skin rejuvenation treatment often provides rejuvenated results for most patients. To achieve your best possible results, you may choose to get a set of 3 – 4 treatments every 2 – 4 weeks. For aggressive rejuvenation settings, a longer period of time could be required between appointments. After that, we advise planning follow-up fractional plasma sessions a couple of times per year at Smith Medical Group.

What's the difference between Opus Plasma resurfacing and comparable laser resurfacing treatments?
Unlike traditional laser treatments, Opus Plasma offers precise control with less damage to the surrounding tissues. This results in shorter downtime and may lead to a more comfortable experience.

Who is not a suitable candidate for Opus Plasma treatment?
Those with certain skin conditions, pregnant women, or individuals with specific health concerns may not be suitable candidates for Opus Plasma treatment. A thorough consultation with a team member at Smith Medical Group will determine if the procedure is right for you.

Is plasma skin resurfacing with Opus Plasma painful?
It likely won't be. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, and most patients describe a mild prickling sensation. A numbing cream may be applied beforehand to maximize comfort during the skin rejuvenation process.
