Renew MD is home to many cosmetic treatments that target different skin concerns. Skin resurfacing – often called laser skin resurfacing – is a highly sought-after treatment these days. As a general overview, skin resurfacing is the act of removing the upper layer of skin, revealing healthy skin beneath it. Different machines and techniques can be used to do this.

Benefits of Skin Resurfacing

Younger-looking skin

By getting rid of the top layer of your skin, a new layer is revealed below. This can look far more vibrant and youthful, making you look younger. What’s more, many skin resurfacing techniques use laser technology to increase collagen production, causing wrinkles to be reduced. 

Remove bacteria and impurities

Lots of impurities can be lodged in the pores of your skin. With resurfacing, these impurities and bacteria can be removed, leaving your skin in a much healthier state. In turn, this can also prevent breakouts and keep your skin clearer for longer. 

Fade scars and pigmentation

Another excellent benefit of skin resurfacing is that it helps to reduce the appearance of scars or hyperpigmentation. The removal of the upper layer is again responsible for this, as most scars or pigmentation issues are on the surface of your skin. The further you go down the layers, the less prominent they are. So, skin resurfacing is perfect for people with acne scars or blemishes that they want to get rid of.

Types of Skin Resurfacing Treatments

The expert team at Renew MD gives you four skin resurfacing treatments to try:

Opus Plasma

The Opus Plasma skin resurfacing system is an innovative option that can leave you with smoother, rejuvenated skin. It uses a gentle skin peel with an ablative CO2 laser. 

Venus Viva

A typical Venus Viva treatment lasts 45 minutes and is brilliant for candidates with dull skin. It evens out your complexion, getting rid of many imperfections. For some patients, one treatment is enough to see your desired results, but two or three are usually recommended. It’s an FDA-approved treatment that uses Radio Frequency waves to encourage collagen production in your skin’s cells. 

Laser Genesis

Short pulses of light energy are delivered to the dermis, breaking down pigment and improving skin tone and clarity. This is the Laser Genesis system, and it helps treat all sorts of complexion problems: broken capillaries, uneven skin texture, and enlarged pores. 


Finally, we have microdermabrasion, which is one of the more traditional skin resurfacing options. We use a special device that exfoliates the skin and removes bacteria, dirt, and any other debris that’s present. The result is instantly smoother skin, which looks and feels clean and soft. The treatment can stop there, or you can combine it with Red LED light treatment to see long-lasting results. 

Any of these skin resurfacing treatments could be right for you. All of your options will be discussed during your free consultation, ensuring that you find the perfect one for your needs and budget.
