What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing with the Opus® Plasma uses plasma to create tiny areas of damage to the skin. As a result, the skin initiates a process of healing and restoration that leads to skin firming, the smoothing of lines and wrinkles, and evenness in tone and texture. 

Laser skin resurfacing works because causing micro-damage to cells makes them healthier by stimulating them to produce new cells and more collagen. This builds up the support network of the skin and pushes new, brighter skin to the surface. Laser skin resurfacing has become a popular way to firm and tighten skin without surgery or invasive procedures. 

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

The Opus® Plasma belongs to the category of fractional lasers. This means it only produces damage to a fraction of the skin, leaving healthy skin around it to speed up the healing process and reduce downtime. With the customizable Opus® Plasma, your provider can adjust the intensity of treatment to suit your needs and comfort level, although a numbing cream makes the process comfortable for most people. 

After the plasma energy creates these areas of microdamage, the surrounding skin sends out many signals that recruit growth and healing factors. As a result, the skin produces new collagen, which gives the skin lift and firmness. This collagen production creates the long-term results of the procedure.

Is There Any Downtime With Laser Skin Resurfacing?

You can expect to see some redness, similar to a sunburn, for several days. After this, some people experience peeling for a day or two. This dead skin sheds as healthier skin replaces it. You can go back to your usual activities as much as you feel comfortable, but make sure to protect your skin from the sun.

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.
