Can Plasma Skin Resurfacing Smooth Out Fine Lines on the Face?

By: Dr. Leonel Perez


Among the earliest and most frustrating signs of facial aging is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, due largely to a natural loss of collagen and elastin. Sun exposure, lifestyle, and other environmental factors can further contribute to the development of lines and skin laxity, leaving many people self-conscious about their looks. For men and women looking for a convenient, effective solution for minimizing lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and other age-related concerns without an extended recovery period, Dr. Leonel Perez and the dedicated team at Beyond Esthetics in Annandale, VA offer plasma skin resurfacing with the state-of-the-art Opus® system. Keep scrolling for more information on how Opus Plasma skin resurfacing may help to transform your complexion.

What is plasma skin resurfacing?

Similar to laser skin resurfacing, the Opus Plasma skin resurfacing treatment is designed to improve a diverse array of skin concerns, including many of the most common signs of facial aging — like lines and wrinkles — by destroying dead and damaged skin cells and stimulating collagen production. What sets plasma skin resurfacing apart from laser treatments is the combination of radiofrequency (RF) and plasma energies used. This cutting-edge approach allows only targeted layers of skin to be treated without damaging the surrounding tissues, meaning patients enjoy fewer side effects and a shorter recovery period.

How can plasma skin resurfacing make my skin look better?

With age, most of us will notice the texture, tone, firmness, and other characteristics of our skin start to change. Many of these changes are associated with a dwindling supply of collagen and elastin — two essential components of youthful, firm, supple skin. In addition, sun damage, hormone fluctuations, and other factors can lead to hyperpigmentation and dark spots. By triggering the production of collagen and elastin fibers while simultaneously targeting dead, damaged, and hyperpigmented skin cells, Opus Plasma skin resurfacing can restore a clearer, smoother, and more vibrant complexion. Some of the most common skin concerns that can be greatly improved with plasma skin resurfacing include:

  • Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Droopy skin
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Rough skin texture
  • Aged skin

Is plasma skin resurfacing safe for dark skin?

Another unique and attractive feature of Opus Plasma skin resurfacing is that it is safe for almost all skin types and tones, including dark skin. Still, our expert aesthetic team will conduct a thorough skin assessment and review of your health history prior to administering treatment to ensure plasma skin resurfacing is appropriate and safe for you.

How long does plasma skin resurfacing last?

Following a series of 2 – 3 plasma skin resurfacing treatments — each of which takes about 15 – 30 minutes — patients will begin to notice their complexion looking clearer and healthier. Over time, these results will continue to improve as new collagen builds up, and many patients report their newly enhanced complexion lasting for up to two years or longer.
