Opus Plasma® by Alma Lasers is a cutting-edge technology that is revolutionizing the skin resurfacing industry for both the face and body. This novel solution addresses superficial to complex textural and skin-quality concerns that are traditionally corrected with conventional fractional resurfacing lasers or full-field ablative resurfacing lasers, but with less downtime and a higher safety profile. It is the first and only unipolar radiofrequency treatment that can treat uneven skin tone, texture, stretch marks, scars, and skin laxity—the results from this fractional plasma treatment rival aggressive ablative CO2 lasers with minimal downtime.
Opus Plasma treatments require half the downtime compared to the lengthy recovery times of traditional ablative CO2 skin resurfacing treatments and with much more tolerability. The Opus Plasma procedure can be completed in as little as 30 minutes depending on the treated area and initial results are visible from the first treatment.
Opus Plasma is an exciting new skin rejuvenation platform that delivers dramatic results by operating at a high frequency of unipolar radiofrequency energy. This cutting-edge technology uses metal pins that are supercharged with RF energy, when these pins are close to the skin, it converts nitrogen and oxygen in the air into plasma sparks. The plasma causes skin ablation along with a thermal effect.
This effect creates plasma, making micro-thermal zones of fractional injuries to the skin. The natural healing process jumpstarts collagen production through a wound healing response similar to Microneedling. However, this technology uses radiofrequency and microplasma instead of needles. The results are incredible but don’t take our word for it, call us today to set up your consultation and see the difference Opus Plasma can make for you!
Opus Plasma has many benefits; four pillars set Opus Plasma apart from other skin resurfacing treatments. The first is little downtime. Opus Plasma patients love receiving highly effective treatments with significantly less downtime than traditional laser or needling treatments. The second is highly customizable treatments. Opus Plasma provides various tips so that your provider can design your treatment with precision for unparalleled results. The third benefit is the speed at which you can achieve results; a full-face treatment is complete in less than 30 minutes.
Finally, the fourth and most crucial benefit Opus Plasma offers is the impressive results. Although most clients reach optimal results after 2-3 sessions, results will be visible after your first treatment.
The ideal candidate for Opus Plasma is in good health, a non-smoker, and desires to improve the surface of their skin, reverse signs of aging, treat scarring, and improve stretch marks. Many patients want to treat these issues but in the past have avoided treatment due to the significant downtime and/or discomfort that traditionally comes with skin resurfacing treatments and lasers.
Many of our clients have experienced dramatic results when treating age spots, crows’ feet, fine lines and wrinkles, minor scarring, or rough and uneven skin texture along with neck skin laxity and stretch marks. It’s even been effective on unwanted pigmentation, unlike laser resurfacing, which can cause hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones. Opus Plasma is safe and effective on all skin types and can be operated year-round, making almost everyone a great candidate for this resurfacing treatment.
Unlike traditional laser treatments, Opus Plasma offers state-of-the-art technology meaning clients can experience drastically less downtime with better results. It’s common for clients to experience mild-moderate redness on the treated areas and on occasion minor swelling. However, most people can return to their regular schedule immediately after treatment and fully recover after 1-3 days.
