Plasma resurfacing is an advanced anti-aging treatment that makes your skin look younger, firmer, and smoother. Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics offers skin resurfacing for men and women in Lone Tree, Littleton, Aurora, and surrounding areas of Colorado.
What is Skin Resurfacing?
Plasma resurfacing is an advanced minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production with a unique plasma energy technology. It works similar to microneedling in that the treatment produces tiny micro-channels in the skin. This stimulates collagen production to firm the skin and accelerate skin cell turnover.
What Can Be Treated with Skin Resurfacing?
Our Opus Plasma treatment is recommended for all skin types, including dark skin. Specifically, the treatment helps with:
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Poor skin texture
Treatment Areas for Resurfacing
Some of the areas of your body that can be treated with plasma resurfacing are:
- Love handles
- Under the chin
How is Skin Resurfacing Performed?
Plasma skin resurfacing involves administering thin streams of ionized nitrogen gas into your skin. This creates the micro-channels that heal with new collagen fibers. For more advanced treatments, such as deep wrinkles, we may give you a medication to help you relax, as well as numb the area. We clean your skin and start the treatment. A typical treatment takes 45 to 60 minutes. The plasma energy is applied in pulses, and you may hear a snapping sound with each pulse. You may also feel a slight warming sensation.
Skin Resurfacing Recovery
Expect some redness and irritation initially, but your skin looks much healthier. For the first three to seven days, your skin looks dry and flaky. This is normal, and it indicates that new skin cells are surfacing. You can use very light, powder-based makeup after three days. Full healing after our plasma resurfacing treatment can take several weeks. This depends on how quickly your body produces new collagen.
How Long Do Resurfacing Results Last?
The dermal collagen remodeling of plasma skin resurfacing lasts up to six months. This varies based on how well your body produces collagen.
