PSR

A treatment for removing abnormal skin pigmentation, fine lines, acne scarring, and abnormal skin texture, in which ionized gas (the “plasma”) is used to remove superficial or deeper skin layers. Nitrogen gas is typically stripped of its electrons, and then applied to the skin as a spray. This heats the dermis (the layer of skin beneath the epidermis). The epidermal layer peels off a few days after treatment, while new collagen grows within the dermis, giving the skin a smoother appearance. PSR is an alternative to laser skin resurfacing.
