Your adolescent acne wasn’t a pleasant experience. It may have been a source of embarrassment, anxiety, and low self-esteem.
You may be glad that your days of having acne are over, but what if you’re left with some permanent scars? If you suffered from moderate or severe acne, you most likely ended up with at least some acne scars.
And if you’re tired of being self-conscious about those scars, our professional team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa, led by board-certified physician Dr. Kenneth Thompson, can help with Opus Plasma® treatments.
What is Opus Plasma and how does it diminish acne scars?
Opus Plasma uses a type of electrical energy that mixes with chemicals in the air to make plasma. A hand-held device delivers the heat energy to the deep underlayers of your skin as well as to the superficial or top layer of skin.
The energy sparks new collagen production, the key to smooth, youthful skin. Old skin dies and new skin cells are born.
The fractional plasma technology enables us to adjust the energy settings and deliver just the right amount of energy going into your skin. It’s the newest technology on the market for skin rejuvenation.
How long does an Opus Plasma treatment take?
Most treatments take about 20-30 minutes. Treatment time depends on how many areas you want us to work on and how much plasma energy we need to achieve the results you want.
How many Opus Plasma treatments do I need?
We usually recommend about three treatments spaced one month apart. Each case varies according to your unique skin condition. Some of our patients are happy with only one treatment.
How long do the Opus Plasma results last?
Opus Plasma gives long-term results. And those results can last many years, especially when combined with maintenance treatments.
What are the advantages of Opus Plasma versus lasers?
Plasma energy is very effective at improving changes in skin tone and texture. It reduces the appearance of your acne scars, but it can also shrink large pores that might be the result of your acne.
Opus Plasma also lightens dark spots and creates a smoother skin texture and tone. We customize the treatment to your specific concerns.
Another advantage: Opus Plasma works on all skin types, including darker skin. Laser resurfacing treatments don’t work on dark skin.
Using our low-energy Opus Plasma approach, you only need a couple of days for healing after each session. You may experience mild redness for a few days. Traditional laser resurfacing can take more than 10 days for initial recovery.
