What is Opus Plasma®?

Opus Plasma is a noninvasive skin resurfacing treatment that uses unique Fractional Plasma® technology to create minor trauma on your skin. Your skin then heals the damages, resulting in improvements in its tone and texture.

Opus Plasma is similar to laser treatments and highly comparable. The difference is that it uses plasma energy instead of laser light waves to create column-like channels in the skin. 

Radiofrequency helps produce plasma energy as it reacts with atmospheric pressure. The plasma results in skin surface improvements while the radiofrequency reaches deeper. 

The deep radiofrequency waves stimulate the production of collagen, a fibrous protein in the skin that makes it firmer and tighter. For this reason, Opus Plasma can improve the way your skin looks and feels. 

What does Opus Plasma treat?

Opus Plasma offers surface-level and deep structural improvements for your skin and the underlying tissues. You can complete a full face treatment with Opus Plasma in as little as 10-15 minutes to treat: 

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Skin laxity
  • Neck lines

Your provider at A Beautiful You Medical Spa works with you to customize your treatment with Opus Plasma according to yourgoals and specifications. The procedure is suited for any skin type and fits into your schedule without downtime. 

What should I expect during an Opus Plasma treatment?

Before you get your Opus Plasma treatment, you should come in for a consultation. Your provider asks about your goals and medical history so they can plan and customize the procedure for you.  

When you come in for your procedure, your provider applies topical numbing cream across the treatment area. They also tell you to remove any jewelry as the plasma energy can react with metal and cause sparks. Your provider dials the Opus Plasma device up or down according to the specific intensity you need. 

Depending on what you discussed during your consultation, the Opus Plasma device can treat your face or certain areas of the body like your chest, arms, or knees. The exact length of the treatment depends on the number of areas you target.  

You won’t have to spend any time recovering, but your skin will be a bit irritated for 24-48 hours. Around three days later, you’ll experience some peeling. By day seven, you’ll see your results. Your provider might suggest getting the procedure more than once for the best possible effect.
