What is Opus?
An innovative, first-of-its-kind radio-frequency skin resurfacing technology that improves the skin’s tone and texture with treatments that take 15 to 20 minutes and require minimal downtime. The innovative platform combines radio-frequency (RF) energy with plasma created when the RF energy emitted from the tips of metal pins react to atmospheric pressure. 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. Unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing technologies, Opus Plasma precisely controls the time that radio-frequency energy makes contact with the skin. This minimizes unwanted inflammation that typically leads to longer recovery times.
