An innovative, first-of-its-kind radiofrequency skin resurfacing technology that improves skin tone, texture, wrinkles & fine lines, scars, acne scars, & stretch marks.
The Opus is an ablative radiofrequency resurfacing laser used to improve the texture, tone, and appearance of the skin. Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical technique that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and is addresses a variety of skin issues, including eye, neck and oral wrinkles, facial fine lines, age spots, scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone.
Using the highly-innovative Opus Plasma, we’re able to offer our clients state of the art technology and incredible results with minimal downtime post treatment.
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. The innovative platform combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with plasma created when the RF energy emitted from the tips of metal pins react to atmospheric pressure.
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, however, Opus Plasma precisely controls the time that radiofrequency energy makes contact with the skin. This minimizes unwanted inflammation that typically leads to longer recovery times.
We can even address sagging eye lid skin with the Opus Colibri!
Because we can adjust the treatment’s intensity, virtually anyone with concerns about their skin’s appearance is a good candidate for an Opus Plasma procedure. It produces results similar to an aggressive CO2 laser or a gentle laser peel, depending on the setting used. The difference with Opus Plasma is that the treatment and recovery time is minimal compared to other laser treatments.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the target area to minimize discomfort during the session. The topical anesthetic stays on the skin for 30-60 minutes. Once the skin is numb, we glide the Opus Plasma handpiece across the skin to emit the radiofrequency and plasma energy. Once the procedure is finished, we apply a protective balm. Patients usually notice some slight redness and swelling after the treatment, but it resolves on its own within 24 to 48 hours in most cases. More aggressive treatment settings can extend the downtime. Even though most patients see results after a single treatment, we recommends 3 treatment sessions for optimal results.
