Achieve Flawless Skin with Skin Resurfacing

Eliminate signs of aging and target skin imperfections with little downtime.

Skin resurfacing is an exciting, non-invasive aesthetic procedure that can turn back the hands of time to eliminate the signs of aging, target pigment and complexion issues, and reveal tighter, brighter-looking skin. This extremely effective facial rejuvenation solution drastically improves the overall appearance and texture of your skin, treating some of your skin’s most incessant problems including uneven skin tones, fine lines and wrinkles, deep wrinkles, large pores, brown spots, and even blemishes and scars.

How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?

Using ablative lasers, the top layers of the skin are targeted and damaged to force the skin beneath to regenerate, inducing the development of collagen as the skin works to heal itself. The resulting skin is more elastic, taut, and smoother. Patients who undergo skin resurfacing see the signs of aging fade away and will enjoy healthier-looking skin with the results lasting anywhere from 6 to 9 months.

Reveal Radiant Skin with CO2 Skin Resurfacing

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is one of the most powerful cosmetic services we offer. With CO2 skin resurfacing, the lasers fully ablate the skin, stripping away the entire top layer of the skin within the treatment area. CO2 laser skin resurfacing focuses on particular parts of the face to treat deep lines and wrinkles, sunspots, acne, and dark spots and offers maximum tissue tightening. The results following CO2 skin resurfacing include smoother and younger-looking skin that is free of blemishes and sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles, and pigmented lesions and acne scars.

2-3 treatments are usually recommended, with treatment times typically around 15-30 minutes each. Anesthesia is required for CO2 skin resurfacing as the procedure itself can cause discomfort. Patients who undergo CO2 laser skin resurfacing will need up to two weeks of recovery time. During the recovery period, you’ll experience redness and peeling and should avoid exposure to the sun.

The results patients can achieve with Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing include reduced signs of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and scarring. Patients will also experience smoother, softer skin, tighter and more taut skin, and an improvement in the overall appearance of the skin.

2-3 treatments are typically recommended, with each treatment lasting 20-30 minutes. Recovery time is anywhere from 5 to 7 days, during which the skin will appear red, dry, and minor puncture marks may be visible.
