Fractional Plasma Energy: The New Way to Rejuvenate Aging Skin
TO ARTICLELISTEN TO ARTICLE
For years, the only way to reduce signs of skin aging was to go under the knife. Now, plenty of non-surgical methods exist to turn back the clock visually. Enter fractional plasma energy treatments: an innovative, non-invasive technology that's the newest way to give you a more youthful appearance.
What is Fractional Plasma Treatment?
Fractional plasma is a skin rejuvenation procedure that can reduce the appearance of everything from fine lines and pore size to stretch marks and acne scars.
Old-school resurfacing treatments used ablative lasers or deep peels to create injuries to the skin, triggering the skin's natural healing response and, subsequently, collagen production. But these treatments often proved to be too deep and destructive. Next came fractional laser skin resurfacing. This technology uses laser beams that split into thousands of microscopic zones, treating a much smaller area than before to minimize downtime while still maximizing efficacy. And now fractional plasma is the latest resurfacing treatment. This cutting-edge technology has only recently entered the market. It features the precise targeting of fractional lasers but instead uses excited gas to create plasma energy.
This innovative device features metal-pinned tips that charge to a specific radio frequency voltage. When the device moves closer to the skin's surface, it reacts to the air's atmospheric pressure, creating plasma-like energy. That means you can expect better results and even less recovery time.
The Many Benefits of Fractional Plasma Treatment
Fractional plasma treatments offer a long list of benefits. They include:
- Relatively quick treatment times - as short as 15 minutes, but times vary depending on the number of treated areas. To achieve the best results, you'll need a minimum of three sessions.
- Typically, up to 50% less downtime than laser treatments. You may experience mild to moderate amounts of redness for up to 48 hours, but this won't disrupt your daily life.
- Advantages for every part of the body. The device can be used anywhere, including the face, neck, abdomen and arms. Energy levels can be increased or decreased, and different tips can be fitted to target hard-to-reach areas.
Should I Get a Fractional Plasma Treatment?
Fractional plasma is an effective rejuvenating procedure. For even more powerful results, try teaming fractional plasma and radio frequency microneedling (RFMN). These treatments synergistically perform controlled injuries for a collagen-boosting, lifting effect. By alternating the two treatments or using each in different areas, you can begin working toward your best skin.
It's much easier to prevent than to correct. Together, at Flora Kim Dermatology, we will develop a customized preventative skincare regime and recommend non-surgical treatments to correct pre-existing concerns.
