Laser and PDS
The laser you describe work on the skin layers, it will not go that deep where it would impact your PDS sutures or internal splint.
Laser skin resurfacing
you should be just fine to have co2 laser resurfacing. But I would make sure that you wait over a year from the date of the rhinoplasty, just to ensure the integrity of the skin that was raised during the rhinoplasty. The PDS plate that was used has actually dissolved and integrated with the nasal tissue. Good luck!
