Am I a candidate for Skin Resurfacing?

There are a number of factors to keep in mind when considering which skin resurfacing regimen is ideal for your needs. This treatment is ideal for a person who is unhappy with their skin's appearance. Skin resurfacing procedures will help improve these cosmetic flaws. In addition, plasma skin resurfacing works great for people who have rough texture, patches of flakey skin, or additional imperfections. This procedure may not be ideal for people who have pigmented skin or current acne breakouts.

What is the OPUS Skin Resurfacing Procedure technique?

During your treatment, you will rest in a treatment chair while the Opus handheld device is passed over your skin, aiming at the desired treatment areas. You will feel a warm sensation from the handheld applicator, then cool air from Opus' built-in cooling technology. The radiofrequency wavelengths work to wipe out damaged and dead skin cells, as well as spurring new collagen growth. Based on the condition of your skin, the treatment may be adjusted accordingly. After your procedure, you will see redness similar to a sunburn, but this will most likely fade after 2 – 3 days. Your rejuvenated look should last long term and may be repeated as needed. While your outcomes should last a long time, it's crucial to keep in mind that this procedure does not stop your body's inevitable age progression.

Plasma Skin Resurfacing FAQ

How much does plasma skin resurfacing cost?
The cost of plasma resurfacing will depend on the number of treatment areas, as well as the condition of the skin being treated. During your consultation, Dr. Tepper will ask about your concerns and wants before reviewing the types of resurfacing treatments. After this, he can help you decide on your resurfacing treatment and talk to you about costs. SkEye Med Spa often offers skin treatment specials and packages, so be sure to ask in your consultation.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
Plasma skin resurfacing recovery is much faster than resurfacing with a laser. Dr. Tepper or someone on his team will talk to you about how you can help your skin heal after a plasma resurfacing treatment. The most important rule is don't peel or pick flaking skin. This can lead to lasting damage including scars. You need to forgo all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which means no shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams, in addition to applying sunscreen and a hat or other covering. We can suggest an ointment to help soothe treated areas.

Should I get plasma skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion?
After listening to your problems, Dr. Tepper will help you choose whether plasma skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion treatment will achieve your goals. Although they all improve your skin, each has pros and cons. In your initial consultation, Dr. Tepper will review each choice and make a recommendation for your treatment.

How often should I get plasma resurfacing treatments?
Seeing that plasma skin resurfacing isn't overly uncomfortable, you might only need to wait weeks between sessions. You should talk to Dr. Tepper about how often you want to come back for treatments so he can consider this when recommending a treatment plan during your initial consultation.
