Laser Skin Resurfacing

Restoring your brighter, smoother skin can be easier than you think. Laser skin resurfacing improves texture and tone with minimal downtime. It triggers your skin’s healing processes to bring healthy new skin cells to the surface while promoting collagen production. 

What is Opus™ Plasma Laser Skin Resurfacing?

At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we offer Opus™ Plasma skin resurfacing. This system can provide the powerful skin rejuvenation of a CO2 laser but without the recovery time. It creates tiny areas of damage on the skin’s surface, triggering cells to increase collagen production and removing old layers of skin to reveal a brighter new one.

You could improve signs of aging, sun damage, and more with a procedure that fits into your lunch break. Opus® Plasma uses laser and radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate your skin and reverse signs of aging and sun damage. This technology improves the skin’s collagen production to give you long-lasting improvements in skin firmness, texture, and tone. 

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses a laser to trigger the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we use the Opus® Plasma laser, which represents the next generation of fractional skin resurfacing treatments for most skin types. Opus® Plasma uses radiofrequency energy to create the plasma, and this plasma then causes tiny areas of micro-damage to the skin that triggers collagen production through a wound-healing response.

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.
