Those patients seeking treatment to address multiple concerns may opt for a resurfacing. Bella Cosmedica offers two different approaches to resurfacing procedures, traditional CO2 and the newer plasma technology (not to be confused with Vampire-type treatments which rely on growth factors derived from your own blood). Both CO2 and plasma treatments provide multiple benefits including skin tightening, pore size reduction, clearing of red and brown pigmentation, softening of lines and wrinkles and increased collagen production. Once patients are prepped, treatment can be completed on the face, neck or chest in about 40 minutes. A combination of topical, oral and injected medications will help minimize discomfort during treatment. Some aftercare is required with healing time typically in the range of 5 to 7 days.
Studies have shown an increase in collagen production which continues up to 2 years following a plasma resurfacing procedure.
