Plasma Skin Tightening in Auburn Hills, MI

What Is Plasma Skin Tightening?

At Capstone Vision & Aesthetics, ophthalmologist Dr. Leslie Emmert-Buck and her highly trained team are proud to offer some of the latest rejuvenation solutions on the market currently. Plasma skin tightening is a nonsurgical treatment that uses top-of-the-line technology by Alma Opus Plasma® to smooth and lift sagging skin tissue. Radiofrequency and microplasma energies are emitted deep into the dermal layers to promote elastin and collagen production and produce a tighter, more youthful complexion. With this treatment, our expert team can elevate hanging, sagging skin tissue and creases in regions, such as the eyes, upper face, neck, cheeks, and chin. Reach out to our practice in Auburn Hills, MI to book a consultation with our aesthetic professionals to learn if this skin rejuvenation treatment would be ideal for your unique goals.

How Does Plasma Skin Tightening Work?

Our expert team will work with you at your initial consultation to get a better understanding of your goals and construct a customized plan to smooth and refresh your skin. During your treatment, one of our technicians will use the Opus Plasma handpiece to apply fractional plasma energy to your skin, stimulating collagen production to naturally reinvigorate your complexion. The device is effective for any skin tone and offers a high degree of precision, meaning there's little to no discomfort during your treatment and minimal recovery time required afterward. Post-plasma skin care and instructions will be given after the treatment.

After your plasma skin tightening procedure, it's common for your skin to take on a pink and tender appearance, reminiscent of a sunburn. At Capstone Vision & Aesthetics, our team will provide you with detailed post-treatment instructions to facilitate a complete and successful recovery process. Over the following days to weeks, it's expected that your skin will naturally undergo a peeling process, which is a normal part of the healing journey. During this phase, it's essential to protect your skin by applying moisturizing lotion and avoiding sun exposure. As your skin heals and collagen regeneration takes place, you can look forward to experiencing a rejuvenated and improved complexion in the coming months.

What Are the Benefits of Plasma Skin Tightening?

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.
