What Is Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing?
Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing takes traditional fractional skin resurfacing to a new level. This advanced therapeutic technique harnesses the power of precision plasma energy technology.
Like traditional skin resurfacing, this treatment creates microscopic injuries to the targeted area to stimulate collagen production. Instead of creating these tiny channels in the skin with a hand-held laser, the Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing treatment uses tiny metal rods that emit electrical plasma energy when placed near your skin. Your skincare technician can adjust the intensity of these treatments based on your skin type and aesthetic goals.
This process stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to allow the skin to heal smoother and clearer, wiping away wrinkles, age spots, acne and scarring, and more. In this sense, laser skin resurfacing is like a “magic eraser.” After these treatments, your skin has a refreshing glow and a more youthful appearance. Post-pregnancy stretch marks can smooth out. Acne scars can disappear. Skin laxity can improve.
All of these skin-changing effects are possible both with traditional laser treatments and with Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing. However, there is one very important area where Opus Plasma is a huge improvement over traditional laser treatment—and that is in the healing process itself.
How Is Opus Plasma Different From Traditional Laser Treatment?
The biggest problem associated with traditional laser resurfacing is that it can take up to a month to heal your skin. Just after skin resurfacing, your skin may look red or blotchy. You’ll likely have bandages on the areas treated and you will need to clean the areas and apply ointment several times a day to keep scabs from forming.
About a week after your laser treatment, you’ll experience dryness and peeling, which is the body’s natural way to shed the damaged skin. Only after the skin heals, about 20-days later, can you wear oil-free makeup to help minimize the lingering redness. Finally, after two months or so, your new, refreshed skin will be ready and healed. It’s this downtime that is the chief side effect of traditional laser treatment.
Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing is the next evolution of the skin resurfacing aesthetic treatment. Instead of using laser technology, Opus Plasma makes use of proprietary high-frequency unipolar radio frequency (RF) plasma energy.
Opus Plasma, like traditional laser resurfacing, removes a tiny fraction of the targeted skin area. This stimulates the surrounding tissue to rejuvenate. However, Opus Plasma is much more precise, which lessens the inflammatory side effect caused by traditional surgery. With Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing, you typically experience only 24 to 48 hours of mild redness and swelling.
