Opus Skin Resurfacing
Your skin gradually diminishes in quality as you age. There are a number of reasons why this occurs. As early as your 30’s, your production of collagen, a structural protein that maintains skin firmness and elasticity, declines. UV rays emitted by the sun gradually take a toll on your skin, which affects your tone and texture. The natural forces of gravity tug and pull, making your skin sag. Aging is inevitable and impossible to avoid – your skin shows the experiences of life as the external and internal factors take their toll. Despite this, a rejuvenating treatment exists that can help relieve your skin of these cosmetic concerns, essentially turning back the hands of time and giving you a more youthful image. This treatment is known as Opus Plasma skin resurfacing.
What Is Skin Resurfacing With Opus Plasma?
Opus Plasma, developed by Alma, a lead developer of aesthetics technology, is an FDA-approved skin rejuvenation treatment. The treatment involves a device that has metal pins which emit radiofrequency energy while gliding across the top of the skin. When this energy is introduced to the skin, it causes a plasma to form, which heats the skin and ultimately creates micro-injuries. These micro-injuries prompt the body’s natural healing response, which boosts the production of collagen and elastin. The micro-ablative treatment allows for controlled damage, meaning it is safe, precise and reduces the possibility for inflammation.
What Are The Benefits Of Opus Plasma?
Opus Plasma is an exceptional treatment that has many benefits in comparison to other skin rejuvenation treatments, including:
• Quick treatment time, taking approximately 15 minutes
• Requires less downtime as compared to Co2
• Visible results
• Precise treatment
• Great for under eye area
Opus Plasma is a skin rejuvenation treatment that addresses the following cosmetic concerns:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Skin laxity
• Acne scars
• Uneven texture
Who Is The Ideal Candidate?
Opus Plasma is a highly versatile treatment that can treat cosmetic concerns of men and women of any skin tone and type. The treatment can be performed anywhere on the face, including sensitive areas such as the delicate skin around the eyes.
During an initial consultation, your cosmetic concerns and skin quality will be reviewed to ensure candidacy. Your medical history and goals for the treatment will also be discussed.
The Opus Plasma Treatment
Your Opus Plasma treatment will begin with applying a topical anesthetic to the treatment site to reduce discomfort. When your skin is prepped, the device will be applied to your skin, which is then moved evenly across your entire face, ensuring consistency. The device’s energy will be adjusted to suitable settings based on your unique skin tone and type. Opus Plasma is a particularly unique treatment because it takes only 15 minutes to treat the entirety of the facial structure. Afterwards, you leave with a red to flushed appearance, some compare this to a mild to server sunburn.
Recovery From Opus Plasma
Everyone responds differently to treatments but on average a patient can expect mild redness and swelling to last approximately one to two days. After the swelling subsides, your skin may develop a leathery feel that lasts three to five days. Full recovery is usually achieved after five to seven days.
Opus Plasma Results
After your skin has fully recovered, your complexion will be visibly more vibrant and taut, creating a more youthful image. However, it will take approximately three months until your final results are fully realized. Since Opus Plasma is a treatment that effectively stimulates your body’s production of collagen, your results will continue to improve as collagen production continues. While one Opus Plasma session creates outstanding results, patients are typically recommended to undergo three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve more significant improvement.
