How Opus™ Plasma Uses Radiofrequency to Improve the Skin

Opus™ Plasma uses radiofrequency and plasma energy to transform your skin. This highly customizable treatment produces results similar to laser skin rejuvenation without the recovery time.

What is Opus™ Plasma?

Opus™ Plasma provides intensive but gentle skin resurfacing to address a wide range of skin concerns. Unlike laser treatments, Opus™ Plasma uses plasma energy to create areas of micro-damage on the surface of the skin. This results in the appearance of new, vibrant skin cells. It also triggers collagen development to improve skin firmness and resilience.

How Opus™ Plasma Uses Radiofrequency to Improve the Skin

Opus™ Plasma works by using radiofrequency energy in two different ways. First, the radiofrequency energy interacts with the air to produce plasma. This form of energy creates cup-shaped areas of micro-damage. This provides the resurfacing effect, and because it leaves areas of untouched skin between the targeted spots, you have minimal recovery time. 

Opus™ Plasma also uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production. This form of energy can travel into the deep layers of the skin without causing injury, triggerering skin cells there to increase collagen levels, smoothing and firming your skin. 

What Can Opus™ Plasma Treat?

Opus™ Plasma excels at treating many skin concerns. A series of treatments can produce results similar to intensive laser resurfacing but without the recovery time. Opus™ Plasma is not limited to the face and can be used on many areas of the body. You can expect to see improvements in:

  • Skin firmness 
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Dullness

The micro-damage created by the plasma energy causes surrounding cells to produce healing factors that speed the development of new skin cells. Over time, new collagen production begins to tighten and smooth the skin. 

What is Opus™ Plasma Treatment Like?

Your provider will customize the intensity of your treatment to match your desired results. The effects of this customizable treatment range from light to intensive resurfacing. A numbing cream will keep you comfortable throughout treatment. Unlike most similar treatments, Opus™ Plasma can take as little as fifteen minutes. Most people benefit from two to three treatments.

Is There Any Downtime With Opus™ Plasma?

You may experience some sunburn-like redness and peeling that lasts a day or two. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. However, you will need to avoid sun exposure while your skin heals. The amount of redness and peeling depends on the intensity of your individualized treatment plan. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Opus™ Plasma?

Almost anyone seeking skin resurfacing makes a good candidate for Opus™ Plasma. Unlike most lasers, this treatment works safely on all skin tones. You might not be a good candidate if you have an active skin condition that requires treatment.
