Opus Plasma


 

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.

 

The amazing Opus Plasma is able to address the following skin concerns with fewer treatments and shorter downtime then traditionally aggressive laser treatments

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Skin Laxity

Uneven Skin Tone

Stretch Marks

 

Acne Scars

Unwanted Pigmentation

Rebuilding Collagen

Skin Texture

 
What Is Plasma?

When we talk about Opus plasma, we are not referring to blood plasma or platelet rich plasma. We are instead referring to a type of energy. Plasma is the fourth state of matter with the other states of matter being solid, liquid, and gas. As solid can become liquid, liquid can become gas, gas can become plasma. Unlike the other states of matter, plasma can have an effect on the skin. Plasma exists as a “sea” of free electrons containing positively charged nuclei. These ionized particles can then cause skin changes. Why Hasn’t Plasma Been Used Before For Skin Rejuvenation Treatments?Plasma has been tried before. There is a device called a plasma pen that has been tried in the past for skin rejuvenation, but like the hyaluron pen for fillers, had way more side effects and inconsistent results. The problem with these other devices is that the strength of the plasma was not adequately controlled. What was needed was a way of applying plasma to the skin that controlled how much plasma the skin actually received. Opus is the first device that channels plasma into tiny fractionated dots with tunable power. It’s not a laser–we have plenty of skin rejuvenation lasers–but an altogether new anti-aging treatment!

Does it hurt?

We use a pharmaceutical grade topical numbing agent that will make the procedure very tolerable.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of sessions will vary based on the severity of the area being treated. Typically, a package of 3 sessions is recommended for the best results. Sessions can be spaced 8 weeks apart. Many patients are seeing amazing results even after the 1st treatment session.

What will I look like after a treatment?

Immediately after the procedure most patients will be red and swollen, similar to a sunburn. The redness can be expected for 2-3 days, gradually improving each day. A small number of patients may experience scabbing in an intensely treated area. Most patients report completely recovered skin texture and appearance within the two days to a week depending on how aggressive your treatment goals are.

When will I see results?

Most people notice healthier, younger and smoother looking skin immediately, and the natural repair process of the skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time, and it will continue to improve for up to six months after your final treatment.
