Abstract

Plasma skin regeneration (PSR) is a novel method of skin resurfacing that uses plasma energy to create a thermal effect on the skin PSR is different from ablative lasers in that it is not chromophore dependent and does not vaporize tissue, but leaves a layer of intact, desiccated epidermis that acts as a biologic dressing and promotes rapid wound healing and faster recovery
