Skin Resurfacing in Albuquerque: Alma Opus Treatments

Albuquerque— Are you tired of looking tired? Are dark spots on your face on your neck make you feel less youthful than your fun-loving self? Then Reform ABQ has a solution! Laser skin resurfacing revitalizes the skin and reverses the effects of age, sun, and lifestyle habits like smoking.

What is Opus Plasma?

Opus Plasma represents the next generation of fractional skin resurfacing treatments for women and men of most skin types who want to minimize wrinkles and reverse damage caused by the sun and the natural aging process. The procedure's versatility enables us to adjust treatment intensity from light to aggressive, depending on the patient's skin condition and goals.

How Does Opus Work?

Like other laser skin resurfacing treatments, Opus Plasma removes only a fraction of the skin in the targeted area. Fractional skin resurfacing creates thousands of tiny micro-injuries to the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. The body's natural healing response repairs these controlled wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, the building blocks of smooth, youthful-looking skin.

Why We Love It?

Unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing technologies, Opus Plasma precisely controls radiofrequency energy's time to contact the skin. This minimizes unwanted inflammation that typically leads to longer recovery times.

Who Can Benefit From Opus Plasma Treatments?

Because we can adjust the treatment's intensity, virtually anyone concerned about their skin's appearance is a good candidate for an Opus Plasma procedure. The difference with Opus Plasma is that the treatment and recovery time is minimal compared to other laser treatments. Depending on the setting, it produces results similar to an aggressive CO2 laser or a gentle laser peel.

The benefits of an Opus Plasma treatment include:

  • Reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose and saggy skin

  • Overall skin rejuvenation

  • Minimized acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks

  • Popular treatment areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.

What Happens During An Opus Plasma Treatment?

We begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the target area to minimize discomfort during the session. Once the skin is numb, the specialist glides the Opus Plasma handpiece across the skin. We can treat the entire face in 15 minutes. Once the procedure is finished, we apply a protective balm.

What To Expect After The Procedure?

Patients usually notice slight redness, swelling, and skin peeling after the treatment, but it resolves on its own within 24 to 48 hours in most cases. More aggressive treatment settings can extend the downtime.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Even though most patients see results after a single treatment, we recommend 2 to 3 treatment sessions for optimal results.

At Reform ABQ, we believe beauty starts on the inside and incorporate these elements into your treatment plan. We feature non-invasive, regenerative treatments that are scientifically proven to enhance your body's ability to repair, restore, and rejuvenate your skin over time. If you are ready for a more youthful appearance, contact us today to schedule your consultation!
