Can Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Even Out My Skin Tone?
Uneven skin tone is a common problem caused by factors like age, acne scars, sun exposure, and hormonal changes. When over-the-counter exfoliants fail to repair the damage, plasma skin resurfacing at Kat Motlagh's Health Clinics can achieve significant skin rejuvenation results without weeks of downtime.
Plasma skin resurfacing involves removing a small fraction of the skin to encourage collagen production and the growth of new, healthy cells. Dr. Katayoun Motlagh can explain the process in more detail and help patients decide if this treatment is right for them. Call our office in Palmdale, CA to learn about Opus Plasma and see why so many patients trust us with their skin.
Do you have an uneven skin tone?
Uneven skin looks and feels different from person to person. For some, it may be a splotchy complexion with areas of redness or discoloration. Others have freckles, age spots, or sun damage that makes the skin appear worn-out or rough.
Many factors contribute to unevenness, including:
- Age: Cell turnover occurs more slowly as we age, and reduced collagen production can cause a dull complexion.
- Acne scars: Pimples and other blemishes leave behind scars that appear pitted or bumpy.
- Sun damage: UV rays are known to cause issues with pigmentation, such as freckles and brown spots.
- Hormonal changes: Events like pregnancy and menopause increase melanin production, leading to small patches of darker skin.
Why plasma skin resurfacing?
Some people use exfoliating products to manage skin issues, but these products can only do so much. Additionally, some use harsh chemicals or scrubs that actually damage the tissue and make the problem worse. Kat Motlagh's Health Clinics often recommends Opus Plasma technology in Palmdale, CA when drugstore treatments fail.
Plasma skin resurfacing involves creating microscopic injuries to a fraction of the skin, stimulating our natural wound-healing response. The result is new cell turnover and the production of new collagen and elastin, providing your skin with a more even look over time.
Ideal candidates for skin rejuvenation
Our one-of-a-kind plasma technology is beneficial for most people since it involves far less downtime than traditional treatments. However, those with active acne or infections are not good candidates at this time. Dr. Motlagh can perform an evaluation to determine your eligibility for plasma skin resurfacing.
What to expect during skin rejuvenation treatment
During your Opus Plasma appointment, a small handpiece is used to deliver plasma energy to the skin. The area being treated will be numbed with a topical anesthetic so you can feel more comfortable. The entire process should only take about 15 minutes in total.
What about results from plasma skin resurfacing?
You may experience 24 – 48 hours of redness and swelling after plasma treatment, but these side effects are not significant and should not interfere with your day-to-day life.
Our patients see noticeable skin rejuvenation improvements after their first treatment, but two to three sessions may be recommended for optimal results. Cell turnover and new collagen production take time, so results will continue to improve for weeks or months after treatment.
