For people seeking an answer to dull, sun-damaged skin, acne scarring, and fine lines and wrinkles, laser skin resurfacing treatments offer remarkable results in a fast treatment with minimal recovery time.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
At Renew MD we use the Opus Plasma™ laser skin resurfacing system. Laser skin resurfacing dramatically improves your skin. Conditions treated by the Opus Plasma™ include:
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Lines and wrinkles
Laser skin resurfacing works so well for these skin issues because it stimulates the skin to renew itself.
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing with Opus Plasma™ Work?
This fractional laser uses plasma energy to create areas of micro-damage in the surface of the skin. “Fractional” means that only small areas of the skin are affected by the laser, while the surrounding skin receives signals to heal the micro-damage. This means that these areas heal within a very short time.
The action of the plasma energy triggers the skin to produce collagen, the skin’s natural support system. New collagen continues to increase for several weeks after each treatment, lifting lines and wrinkles, evening the skin tone, and improving skin texture.
How Often Can You Have Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments?
You can have laser skin resurfacing with the Opus Plasma™ every six months, which we recommend to keep improving and maintain your results. Most people need three to four treatment sessions to see the best results, with six months between sessions.
What are the Benefits of Opus Plasma™ Skin Resurfacing?
Treatments are Fast
Treatments only take 20-30 minutes so that you can squeeze a session into even a busy schedule. If you do not feel self-conscious about some skin redness, you can return to work or activities immediately after treatment.
You can expect redness and dry skin for three to five days after treatment. You can still continue with your daily activities, although you will need to keep the treated area out of the sun and wear sunscreen.
After your treatment, you will see a dramatic improvement in the tone, texture, and firmness of your skin, with diminished hyperpigmentation and fewer lines and wrinkles. Ongoing treatments help keep signs of aging at bay and keep your skin rejuvenated.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments?
Most people are good candidates for laser skin resurfacing with the Opus Plasma™, although it works best on people between the ages of 40 and 70. If you are bothered by the condition or appearance of your facial skin, schedule a consultation to find out whether laser skin resurfacing can give you the results you desire.
