Skin Resurfacing Q&A

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is an innovative aesthetic treatment that can enhance the appearance of your skin. Dr. Penhollow uses the Opus Plasma resurfacing equipment. The device combines ultra-high frequency radiofrequency and plasma energy. 

Opus Plasma stimulates a deep peel, removing the old, dry skin and revealing the fresh new skin underneath. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which plumps and rejuvenates your skin from within.  

What skin imperfections improve with skin resurfacing?

Dr. Penhollow can help to reduce the appearance of imperfections, such as:

  • Age spots 
  • Crow’s feet
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Rough or uneven skin texture
  • Pigmentation

If you have other concerns, make an appointment with Dr. Penhollow to learn about skin resurfacing and other aesthetic options to rejuvenate your skin.

What happens during a skin resurfacing treatment?

With the Opus, your treatment takes only about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. 

Dr. Penhollow begins by cleaning your skin and applying a topical numbing agent. Then, while you both wear protective goggles, she uses the handheld device to direct the treatment into your skin. 

Skin resurfacing shouldn’t be painful, especially with the numbing cream. Your skin might feel warm or tingly. 

What should I expect after a skin resurfacing treatment?

Your skin is red, swollen, and a little tender after your skin resurfacing treatment, and you need to take special care to avoid the sun. Dr. Penhollow can recommend specific skin care products to keep your skin clean and soothed. 

One treatment should make a noticeable difference to the appearance of your skin. However, Dr. Penhollow might recommend a series of treatments to achieve your desired results. 

How do I know if skin resurfacing is right for me?

Dr. Penhollow provides thorough skin consultations before recommending resurfacing or any other skin treatment. She asks about your skin concerns and explains your treatment options. You can ask questions and get the answers you need to make the best choice to enhance your skin.
