Opus Fractionated RF
What is Opus Plasma?
Opus Plasma is a revolutionary high-frequency unipolar radiofrequency technology. Opus Plasma is the first skin resurfacing treatment that uses fractional plasma technology. To understand how fractional plasma technology works, we must first understand how skin resurfacing is traditionally performed. Opus Plasma is the first fractional plasma device on the market, it combines radio frequency with micro plasma energy to create tiny channels in the skin to jumpstart collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. It’s a similar technique to micro needling or other fractional ablative laser treatments, but it uses plasma technology for some of the best benefits available.
What Are the Benefits of Opus Plasma?
Because the Opus Plasma system uses plasma energy, it can reduce inflammation by precisely controlling contact time. This means it comes with greatly reduced downtime versus alternative treatment options. Additionally, Opus Plasma only requires a quick, 15-minute treatment session and can be performed using a topical numbing cream. This means you can easily fit it into your regular schedule along with subsequent treatment sessions to achieve your ideal results.
Who’s a Good Candidate for Opus Plasma?
One of the best parts about the Opus Plasma system is that it’s extremely versatile and can be customized to your unique skin type, tone, and concern areas. It can be used on the face as well as sensitive areas like the eyes and lips, unlike other treatments like micro needling. The Opus Plasma can also be used to improve surgical scars and stretch marks on any body part. During treatment, your technician can specifically adjust the energy level to suit your needs and ensure against unwanted inflammation and plasma contact.
Why Opus Fractionated RF? A one-of-a-kind of skin renewal using trademarked technology.
Opus expands on the highly regarded technology of fractional skin resurfacing with the RF energy source resulting in a great outcome, and patients experience results without the downtime of traditional CO2 fractional skin resurfacing. Patients see results with better tone, texture, and tightness of the skin.
Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing
Skin resurfacing is a popular aesthetic treatment that can help improve skin texture and appearance. Traditional skin resurfacing treatments use lasers to precisely remove the outermost layers of skin, which encourages the growth of new, vibrant skin. Skin resurfacing can help improve the appearance of visible signs of aging such as sun damage, age spots, and wrinkles around the eyes or mouth, as well as acne scars, other minor scarring, and some precancerous skin growths.
Fractional laser skin resurfacing
The newer fractional laser technology only removes a fraction of the top layer of skin. While still offering results that are close to the fully ablative laser, fractional lasers involve a more comfortable procedure with a recovery period of only five to seven days. They can be used on larger treatment areas, such as the neck and chest, and are suitable for darker skin types that may not be able to undergo treatment with the fully ablative laser.
Fractional plasma technology
Fractional plasma technology is the next generation of skin resurfacing, offering highly versatile skin treatment options. Metal pins on the Opus Plasma device operate at a high frequency, causing them to react to pressure in the air when placed close to the skin. This delivers energy to the skin in the form of plasma, which triggers skin ablation, similar to the process that occurs with CO2 lasers. The intensity of the plasma can be adjusted depending on the desired effect and skin type of the patient.
What is skin resurfacing?
Most skin resurfacing has been done with a traditional laser device. Various lasers can deliver dramatic skin changes with a pattern of microscopic injuries to a small amount of the skin. The treatments stimulate the body to heal and promote collagen to repair itself. The amount of downtime varies in relation to the depth of the treatment of the skin.
CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
Early skin resurfacing technology has used fully ablative CO2 lasers, which strip away all the top layer of skin within the treatment area. While results are typically good, the procedure can be uncomfortable and may require anesthesia. Treatment areas are typically small and limited to the face only, and recovery may take up to two weeks.
What can I expect with my Opus treatment?
Opus technology is a fast 15-20-minute procedure to an area of the skin such as the face, neck, and chest. Opus also treats acne scaring and stretch marks. During a consultation with our staff, we will plan for the treatment best suited for you. Most patients require 2 to 3 moderate treatments to reach their desired result.
Is the treatment painful?
Depending on your desired treatment plan the amount of discomfort you may experience will vary. Topical anesthetic is applied to the area of the skin that will be treated for 45 minutes prior to your session. The topical anesthetic helps numb the area prior to your treatment.
What is the downtime and recovery?
Recovery downtime varies depending upon the depth and settings of treatment you choose. A light or moderate treatment usually require 24-48 hours of mild redness, swelling and soreness. Most people find it possible to carry on with daily activities. Opus Plasma has had a clinical study that has shown 50 percent of the downtime when compared to traditional laser resurfacing procedures.
Who is a candidate for Opus RF?
The Opus was developed to be extremely versatile for treating a wide demographic of patients from different skin types, ages, and skin issues which include fine lines, wrinkles, tone, and texture. Patients can experience the latest advancements in skin resurfacing that have become the gold standard in skin resurfacing and renewal. Enjoy the results with about one-half the downtime!
