Plasma skin regeneration, used to resurface skin, has been FDA approved for the treatment of acne scarring.
A study conducted by Potter et al in the UK showed a 23% improvement in acne scarring after 6 months and this was sustained for 2 years. The study used silicone elastomer moulds to measure the improvement of the scarring pre and post treatment.
Clinically, at The Victorian Cosmetic Institute, we have noticed an improvement in acne scars for those who undergo the high energy (PSR3) plasma treatments, with a noticeable improvement in skin texture, wrinkles and pigmentation also.
