Multiple low-energy treatments with a plasma skin regeneration tool reduces wrinkles with minimal recovery time, according to a small study published in the Archives of Dermatology.
When electrons are stripped from their atoms to form an ionized gas, the result is plasma, explain the researchers. During plasma skin regeneration, energy from the plasma is emitted in pulses to skin tissue.
Previous studies have focused on using a single high-energy plasma treatment for acne scarring or wrinkle reductions. But the recovery requires a week or more.
In the current study, eight volunteers were administered three low-energy treatments to their entire face every three weeks. Three months after treatment, patients had 37% fewer wrinkles and reported a 68% improvement in the overall appearance of their face. Redness lasted six days, and no scarring or loss of pigment occurred.
