Plasma Skin Resurfacing in Auburn Hills, MI

What Is Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

Fractional plasma skin resurfacing at Capstone Vision & Aesthetics is a noninvasive cosmetic solution that utilizes Opus Plasma®, a plasma fibroblast skin rejuvenation platform, to clear away dead and damaged skin one layer at a time. This service is performed for correcting facial creases and lines and for minimizing irregularities, such as acne scars, sun damage, and other problems. Microplasma skin rejuvenation using Opus Plasma is considered an effective treatment for patients who want softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. To learn more about this skin rejuvenation treatment, schedule a consultation with our team in Auburn Hills, MI today.

How Does Plasma Skin Resurfacing Work?

If your complexion only needs mild improvement, topical anesthesia will be applied to numb treated areas where the laser will target. For the whole face or more intense laser treatments, a type of sedation may be required. During the procedure, you can relax in our treatment chair while the handpiece passes over your skin, directly targeting the needed surfaces for rejuvenation. You will feel warmth from the laser, followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser energy is designed to destroy damaged and dead skin cells while also prompting new collagen production.

Patients can expect several immediate post-treatment effects after having plasma skin resurfacing at Capstone Vision & Aesthetics. At first, you might notice redness similar to a mild sunburn, which usually fades within a few days. As your skin heals, the benefits of the treatment, such as reduced scarring and hyperpigmentation, improved skin tone, and increased collagen production, become more evident. Following the aftercare instructions is crucial to ensuring the best results and a smooth recovery.

Dr. Emmert-Buck and staff are amazing. Needed cataract surgery and they walked me thru every step of the way. I also had Lasik performed to correct my nearsightedness. No more glasses or contacts!!! Fantastic Surgeon! Thank you Capstone.

Went in for LASIK consult and we settled on PRK as the path forward. Honestly the best money I think I've ever spent, both in terms of the procedure and who handled the operation. Dr. Emmert-Buck and her staff are all so wonderfully attentive and personable. There was even a self-caused issue after the procedure and Dr. Emmert-Buck was quick with being able to meet me the day it happened and help me resolve the issue. If I ever need touch ups later on in life, I know where I'm going!

I can highly recommend Dr. Emmert-Buck. I had cataract surgery on both eyes as well as a lens inserted on both this summer and I can see 20/20 without glasses, it's a life changer. Dr Emmert-Buck is a very caring and meticulous doctor/person and explains everything before and after surgery in an easy to understand manner. She also takes her time with you when you are in her office to go through all the exams and any questions you might have. I'm recommending all my family and friends to see her for any eye needs.
