Laser Skin Resurfacing is a powerful tool in our ability to solve visible skin problems, including signs of aging, sun damage, and skin laxity. At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we offer the Opus™ Plasma treatment to give you all the benefits of laser skin resurfacing with just minimal downtime. Opus™ Plasma is unique in that it uses two forms of energy to promote skin regeneration that may last for a year or more.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Typical laser skin resurfacing uses light energy to create areas of controlled micro-damage to the skin. A laser that treats small areas and leaves the surrounding skin untouched is called a fractional laser. These cause significantly less skin trauma than a laser that treats the entire surface. Opus™ Plasma goes a step beyond light energy and uses a combination of radiofrequency and plasma energy to stimulate collagen production while speeding up cell turnover, shedding damaged cells and bringing healthy new ones to the surface.
