What Kind of Scars Can be Improved with Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

By: Taren Jarvis, RN


Opus Plasma® is one of the most sought-after skin rejuvenation systems available today, having helped many patients address even their most stubborn skin concerns and achieve a smoother, healthier, younger-looking complexion that can leave them feeling more confident than ever. One notoriously frustrating skin irregularity that can be challenging or even impossible to improve with topical products alone is scarring — which comes in various forms. Here, registered nurse Taren Jarvis and the experienced team at The Skin Lab in Owensboro, KY provide more information on what types of scars can be effectively treated with plasma skin surfacing, as well as what to expect with an Opus Plasma treatment, how long your results will last, and more.

What is the difference between plasma vs. laser skin resurfacing?

Both plasma skin resurfacing and laser skin resurfacing are popular skin rejuvenation treatments that offer patients the opportunity to address a variety of skin concerns simultaneously and achieve significant, lasting results. The technology behind each treatment is unique, however, with plasma treatments often including radiofrequency (RF) and microplasma energy, and that penetrates deeper layers of the skin. During your initial consultation for skin resurfacing in Owensboro, KY, our knowledgeable team will thoroughly assess and evaluate your skin type and specific concerns to determine whether laser skin resurfacing vs. plasma resurfacing may be the most appropriate and effective option for you.

Does plasma skin resurfacing work for scars?

Yes, many types of scars can be made smoother and reduced with Opus Plasma skin resurfacing. Because plasma skin treatments help to boost collagen production, remove damaged layers of skin, and stimulate the body's natural healing processes, visible or textural scarring can often be improved with Opus — restoring a smoother, clearer complexion once again. Some of the most common scars that can be addressed or even corrected with Opus skin resurfacing include:

  • Acne scarring
  • Surgical scars
  • Injury/trauma scars
  • Stretch marks

If you're considering plasma skin resurfacing for scar reduction, it is important to keep in mind that results will vary from patient to patient based on a number of individual case factors, including the type and severity of their scar, the age of their scar, their skin type and healing response, and others. Prior to treatment, Taren or a member of our aesthetic team will evaluate your scars, review your health and medical history, and more to determine what results may be possible for you with Opus Plasma.

How long does plasma skin resurfacing last for scarring?

Generally speaking, the results of plasma skin resurfacing can last for several months to several years depending on what concerns were treated, the patient's skin tone and type, their age, and their aftercare routine. When it comes to scarring, many patients find that the improvement in their scars treated with plasma skin resurfacing is even longer lasting. With healthy habits, including minimizing sun exposure and adhering to a dedicated at-home and in-office skin care regimen over time, patients can enjoy a smoother complexion and reduced scars for many years.
