Laser Skin Resurfacing


Laser skin resurfacing at Beauty Medica involves a noninvasive cosmetic treatment using pulsating beams of energy to remove dead and damaged skin layers gradually. This procedure effectively addresses facial wrinkles, lines, and skin irregularities such as pigmentation and acne scars. The Alma Opus machine, utilized for this treatment, administers fractional skin resurfacing, commonly known as a laser peel. Tailored adjustments are made based on individual skin conditions and types. While downtime is associated with most laser skin resurfacing treatments, any concerns or queries can be addressed with our Houston, TX team during your assessment and consultation.


Beauty Medica employs top-tier technology, including the Alma Opus fractional laser, for various skin concerns. Some benefits of this treatment include:

  • Rapid sessions: Most appointments take less than an hour.
  • Minimal invasiveness: No incisions or anesthesia required, ensuring a safer option.
  • Precision: Targets specific areas while leaving surrounding tissue unaffected.
  • Safety: Conducted by highly trained staff in a state-of-the-art facility.


Ideal for addressing sun-damaged skin, age spots, acne scars, wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness, laser skin resurfacing begins with preparation using a retinoid cream for enhanced results. During the procedure, you’ll experience the Opus laser gliding over your skin, targeting designated areas for resurfacing. The laser eliminates damaged skin cells and stimulates collagen production. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, recovery may vary from immediate to several weeks, during which the skin will naturally rejuvenate.

Post-treatment care includes avoiding skin picking or peeling and refraining from hair removal methods on treated skin. Recommended soothing creams aid in the healing process.

Dr. Sorkin discusses these options, considering individual goals and skin conditions, during the consultation to determine the most suitable treatment.
