How does laser skin resurfacing work?
The technology behind laser skin resurfacing has been around for years, but it is only recently that the Opus Plasma laser has been gaining traction. Treatment involves administering cutting-edge plasma energy to safely remove a small fraction of the skin. This kick-starts our natural healing processes and helps the body to create new collagen and elastin fibers. The result is firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
What skin issues can be treated with laser skin resurfacing?
Factors like age and sun damage leave our complexion looking less than perfect over time. Patients at Kat Motlagh's Health Clinics often seek out laser resurfacing to improve the following in Palmdale, CA:
Lines and wrinkles: Fine lines are among the first signs of aging and appear around the eyes and mouth. Treatment with our Opus Plasma device smoothes away small imperfections and provides a more youthful look.
Uneven skin texture: A rough or bumpy complexion is often the result of acne scarring and sun damage. Controlled pulses of energy smooth out the skin and create a more even texture.
Hyperpigmentation: An overproduction of melanin can cause dark spots or patches. UV rays, natural age, and hormone changes lead to hyperpigmentation. Laser skin resurfacing creates a brighter and more even skin tone.
How is laser treatment performed?
Opus Plasma is a 15-minute treatment that only requires a topical anesthetic to numb the skin. Dr. Motlagh will review your individual concerns before creating a custom treatment plan.
During skin resurfacing, you will feel a warm sensation as the plasma energy works to improve your complexion. Patients with mild to moderate issues experience minimal downtime but should expect 24 – 48 hours of redness and swelling. However, side effects should not interfere with day-to-day activities.
Patients notice improvements after their first session but may require 2 – 3 treatments for optimal results.
What will my Opus Plasma results look like?
You should notice a real difference in your appearance after laser resurfacing. Fine lines are reduced, acne scars are less visible, and the skin will have a more even texture and tone.
It takes several weeks or longer to see the final results of laser treatment as new collagen and elastin fibers take effect. The great news is that patients at Kat Motlagh's Health Clinics enjoy long-lasting outcomes that only continue to improve over time.
