How Many Sessions of Plasma Skin Resurfacing Are Needed for Optimal Results?

By: Dr. Leslie Emmert-Buck


If you are looking to rejuvenate and refresh your complexion, finding the right treatment can often feel overwhelming. Plasma skin resurfacing, offered by Dr. Leslie Emmert-Buck at Capstone Vision & Aesthetics in Auburn Hills, MI, stands out as a preferred choice. Utilizing the advanced Opus Plasma® skin resurfacing technology, this state-of-the-art method can significantly improve skin texture and appearance. However, a frequent question from many considering this option is: how many sessions are required for optimal results? Let's explore the details of plasma skin resurfacing and why it's becoming a go-to solution for those looking to enhance their skin's vitality. 

What is plasma skin resurfacing? 

Plasma skin resurfacing is an advanced skin treatment that uses fractional plasma technology to refresh and smooth skin. By targeting the top layer of skin, it encourages your body to stimulate healing, creating new collagen and elastin. This process leads to younger-looking, firmer skin with less downtime compared to older methods. It's especially good for reducing wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tones, making it a popular choice for those looking for effective rejuvenation without a long recovery time. 

How many skin resurfacing treatment sessions are typically required? 

The number of plasma skin resurfacing sessions needed varies depending on individual skin conditions and desired outcomes. Generally, patients may expect to undergo between 1 – 3 treatments for optimal results. Factors influencing the number of sessions include:  

  • Skin type and condition: Different skin types may respond differently to the treatment. 
  • Treatment goals: More significant concerns may require additional sessions. 
  • Individual healing response: Personal healing times and responses can affect the treatment plan. 

Dr. Emmert-Buck and her team at Capstone Vision & Aesthetics closely work with each patient to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs and goals. 

How can I optimize my Opus Plasma skin resurfacing results? 

Optimizing your Opus Plasma skin resurfacing results is straightforward with a few key steps. To ensure the best possible outcome, focus on both pre-and post-treatment care:  

  • Sun protection: Use SPF 30+ sunscreen before and after treatment. 
  • Skin care regimen: Avoid irritants like retinoids and exfoliants before treatment. 
  • Post-treatment care: Gently cleanse, moisturize, and avoid sun exposure to help prevent irritation and hyperpigmentation. 
  • Nourishing skin care: After healing, choose products with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. 
  • Hydration and diet: Stay hydrated and eat a diet rich in vitamins. 

Following these steps will help maintain your skin's health and enhance the results of your plasma skin resurfacing treatment.
