What Does Plasma Skin Resurfacing Feel Like?


At Melton Dental in Helena, MT, plasma skin resurfacing is transforming skin rejuvenation treatments. Dr. Sean Melton uses the revolutionary Opus Plasma® platform to improve skin texture and tone with little to no downtime. Best of all, this procedure is considered comfortable, making it an attractive option for achieving a youthful appearance with minimal hassle.

What is Opus Plasma skin resurfacing?

Plasma skin resurfacing is an innovative procedure that utilizes plasma energy to target and treat the skin's surface. The Opus Plasma device combines radiofrequency with microplasma energy to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural healing process, encouraging collagen production and the regeneration of new, healthy skin cells. This dual-energy approach allows for precise, effective treatment with minimal downtime.

What does plasma skin resurfacing feel like?

Patients often describe plasma skin resurfacing as a warm, tingling sensation while the device moves over their skin. The feeling is usually mild to moderate, similar to a slight sunburn. Most people find the experience quite manageable. To help reduce any discomfort, our team will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area before starting your procedure. The team at Melton Dental works hard to ensure you stay comfortable throughout the process, making the treatment as smooth and easy as possible.

What is the recovery like after plasma skin treatment?

The recovery period following plasma skin treatment is relatively short and manageable. Here are some key tips to ensure a smooth recovery:

  • Keep the treated area clean: Gently cleanse your skin with a mild cleanser and avoid harsh scrubbing.
  • Moisturize regularly: Apply a hydrating moisturizer to keep the skin soft and supple.
  • Avoid sun exposure: Protect your skin from direct sunlight by wearing sunscreen with a high SPF and avoiding prolonged sun exposure.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to help your skin heal and stay hydrated from the inside out.
  • Avoid picking at the skin: Allow any scabs or peeling skin to heal naturally without picking or scratching.

How often should I schedule plasma skin resurfacing sessions?

The frequency of plasma skin resurfacing sessions depends on individual skin concerns and goals. For optimal results, many patients start with a series of treatments spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments may be recommended every 6 – 12 months to sustain the rejuvenating effects. Dr. Melton will create a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs and desired outcomes.
