How Long Do Opus™ Plasma Skin Resurfacing Treatments Last?

Skin resurfacing treatments can undo many years of aging, sun damage, and environmental factors, leaving you with smoother, brighter skin. Opus™ Plasma is a unique skin resurfacing treatment that uses plasma energy to create precise areas of micro-damage that trigger skin renewal. It minimizes downtime while maximizing results to suit your busy lifestyle. 

What is Opus™ Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

Fractional skin resurfacing is one of the most effective ways to restore firm, youthful-looking skin. Opus™ Plasma uses plasma energy instead of laser energy to stimulate new collagen production and bring healthy new skin cells to the surface. It is referred to as a fractional treatment because it creates tiny areas of controlled damage while leaving the surrounding skin untouched.

How Does Opus™ Plasma Skin Resurfacing Work?

Opus™ Plasma uses radiofrequency energy transmitted through tiny metal pins. This energy interacts with the air between the metal and the skin, creating intense but precisely controlled plasma energy. This energy stimulates the skin cells to produce healing and growth factors, replacing dull, damaged surface layers with vibrant new ones. It also triggers cells deep in the dermis to produce more collagen, adding firmness and improving the skin’s youthful texture. 

How Long Do Opus™ Plasma Skin Resurfacing Treatments Last?

Opus™ Plasma is highly customizable, so each person’s treatment plan is different. When compared to a CO2 laser, Opus™ Plasma produces similar results but will require two to three treatments instead of one. Unlike the laser, Opus™ Plasma has minimal downtime, making it a more convenient option for many people. 

Your results after treatment can last a year or more. Most people will benefit from a maintenance session each year to keep their skin firm and glowing. While improvements are long-lasting, signs of aging will continue to accumulate, making occasional follow-up treatments the ideal way to maintain youthful skin.

Is There Any Downtime After Opus™ Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

Depending on the intensity of your treatment, you can expect red, tight, or flaky skin for a day or two after each session. We will recommend a heavy-duty moisturizer to minimize peeling and help your skin get back to normal quickly. Avoid the use of harsh or irritating products for several days after treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Opus™ Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

Unlike lasers, Opus™ Plasma is safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates for this treatment want to achieve firmer, more even skin with less downtime than a traditional laser treatment. You should not have this treatment on broken or irritated skin, and people with certain medical conditions may not be good candidates.

The doctor and his staff are so personal yet professionals. I put total trust in them. I’ve learned a great deal about my veins and how to take care of my health.
