What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Medical technologies designed for skin rejuvenation are advancing rapidly, taking esthetic procedures to whole new levels. This means faster and more efficient procedures with minimal downtime and better results. The Opus Plasma™ fractional skin resurfacing system is set to be the latest revolution in skincare. At Albuquerque Vein and Laser Institute, we are proud to offer this innovative solution for skin resurfacing.

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Laser skin resurfacing can address skin irregularities, including pigmentation, skin texture, and skin laxity. The Opus™ differs from traditional laser resurfacing solutions. Although it gives laser-like results, unlike lasers, instead of using light energy, it uses novel Fractional Plasma® technology to provide excellent skin rejuvenation results on all skin types.

This one-of-a-kind device operates at a frequency of over 40MHz. This energy supercharges the Opus Plasma’s™ metal pins with a unipolar radiofrequency voltage (RF). Once the pins are in position near the skin, they react to atmospheric pressure and create plasma. As it creates microthermal fractional injuries in the skin, the plasma simultaneously stimulates healing.

Am I a Good Candidate for Opus™ Treatment?

The Opus Plasma™ is so versatile that it can treat many different skin rejuvenation concerns, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Laxity and sagging

The treatment can be used on sensitive areas, such as delicate skin around the eyes. But it’s not just for facial rejuvenation, it can also be used for skin rejuvenation on the neck, chest and more. What’s more, it’s suitable for all skin types.

What is the Procedure Like?

Our experienced Aesthetic Nurse will begin your procedure with the application of a topical anesthetic to your treatment site. Once our clinician has prepared your skin, she will move the device across your face or neck to produce consistent results. The device has multiple settings, so your clinician can control it precisely to suit your unique skin type and tone. The complete facial rejuvenation procedure takes only 15 minutes. 

What Are The Benefits Of Opus™ Skin Rejuvenation? 

The Opus™ has many benefits compared to traditional laser skin resurfacing treatments. These include:

  • Minimal downtime
  • Precisely targeted treatments
  • Rapid and effective procedure
  • Visible results after just one treatment

What Results Can I Expect?

You will not get facial rejuvenation results as good as this from any laser skin resurfacing system. After your Opus Plasma™ skin rejuvenation procedure, you will notice that your skin is beginning to look more vibrant and feel firmer. You will see the optimal results within three months. By then, you will notice smoother, more youthful-looking skin that feels fresher and tauter than before. Although you will be impressed with a single Opus™ treatment, we recommend that you receive three facial rejuvenation treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to get the best results.

What Is Recovery From Opus™ Like?

Typically, you can expect mild redness and swelling on the treatment area, but this should resolve within a day or two. Complete recovery usually takes five to seven days. Because it’s a quick treatment with no downtime, you can resume your normal daily activities after the procedure. 

“I could not be happier with the services provided by Dr. Cutchen’s and his entire staff. Everyone treated me with respect and cared for the improvement of my veins and I never felt like “just another number”. Follow up care was great. The office manager is really easy to work with and never caused me any issues. Overall- this is the place to be treated!” *
