What is Opus Plasma?
OPUS Plasma treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses radiofrequency and plasma energy to tighten and lift skin. An innovative, first-of-its-kind radiofrequency skin resurfacing technology using plasma energy to improve skin tone, texture, scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. OPUS Plasma Treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically performed on the face, neck, and hands, abdomen (stretch marks) and can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment is safe, effective, and requires minimal downtime of three days of mild sunburn like appearance, making it a popular choice for people who want to refresh their appearance without going under the knife or going through a long recovery period.
How does it work?
Opus Plasma stimulates a small fraction of the skin, which heals the surrounding skin to boost collagen and repair itself. The process involves the application of plasma energy to the skin, which creates small micro-coagulation points that stimulate the skin to produce new collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its elasticity and firmness. This process leads to skin tightening, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, and a more youthful appearance.
What to expect during your treatment?
This will vary based on your personalized treatment plan recommended by your provider. For a full-face resurfacing procedure, we typically schedule an hour – this allows time for the application of topical anesthetic for 30 min. with the actual treatment taking about 15 minutes.
What to expect after your treatment?
This will vary depending on the treatment plan recommended by your provider. You may experience 24-48 hours of mild to moderate redness and swelling. Makeup may be worn after 48 hours. After having treatment, patients are advised to stay out of direct sunlight for best skin healing.
What are the benefits of this treatment?
Opus Plasma can focus on typical trouble areas such as smokers’ lines, crow’s feet, sagging eyelids, the neck, around the mouth and jaw areas.
Does it hurt?
All resurfacing treatments come with some level of discomfort. Many patients report feeling hot in the treatment area. Topical anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area prior to the Opus treatment.
What are the side effects?
There are no severe side effects after receiving an Opus Plasma procedure. However, most patients have a fleeting, mild to moderate redness, swelling resembling a sunburn, and a tight, dry feeling on the skin.
How many treatments will you need?
During your consultation your provider will assess your skin to personalize a treatment plan for you. Best results are typically seen after three treatments, although noticeable improvements may be seen after the first treatment.
How to prepare for the treatment?
You should start taking the antiviral before the procedure. The day of the appointment we ask clients to have cleansed bare skin, no eye make-up, no sunscreen, and no lotion. Be on time to allow topical anesthetic to be applied before the Opus Plasma treatment begins.
Is this treatment permanent?
The results from Opus Plasma may last up to several years, especially when patients have maintenance treatments and combine it with other skin rejuvenation options.
Who can get this treatment?
Anyone can get the Opus treatment. By customizing the settings, we can treat those looking for a simple “glow up” all the way to someone looking for very aggressive resurfacing. No matter what skin type you have, you may benefit from Opus Plasma. This is the first fractional skin resurfacing treatment that works well on darker skin types. It can give you exceptional results without the pain and downtime that comes with traditional skin resurfacing.
