An innovative, first-of-its-kind radiofrequency skin resurfacing technology improves the skin’s tone and texture with treatments that take 10 to 15 minutes and require minimal downtime.

 

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.

What is Plasma?

When we talk about Opus plasma, we are not referring to blood plasma or platelet rich plasma (PRP). We are instead referring to a type of energy.

Plasma is superheated matter. It is the fourth state of matter (along with solid, liquid, and gas). Just as solid can become liquid and liquid can become gas, gas can become plasma when the atoms in a gas become ionized. These ionized particles can then cause skin changes.

Opus Plasma Technology

Opus is a Hybrid RF + Plasma device. It uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to penetrate into the dermal layer, stimulating fibroblast activity. Fibroblasts control the formation of new collagen and elastin in the skin, creating a tightening and thickening effect.


At the same time, the specialized tip on the Opus causes the RF energy to react with Nitrogen in the air, creating a plasma spark. The fractionated plasma spark creates a small, controlled injury on the skin and forces a wound healing response. The result is smoothing and brightening of the epidermal layer of skin.

Who Can Benefit From Opus Plasma Treatments?

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.

  • The benefits of an Opus Plasma treatment include:

  • Reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose and saggy skin

  • Overall skin rejuvenation

  • Minimized acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks

  • Popular treatment areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.

 

What Happens During an Opus Plasma Treatment?

We begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the target area to minimize discomfort during the session. Once the skin is numb, the specialist glides the Opus Plasma handpiece across the skin. We can treat the entire face in 15 minutes. 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 recommend 2 to 3 treatment sessions for optimal results.
