Opus Fractional Plasma
What is Opus Plasma?
Opus Plasma by Alma Lasers is a cutting-edge technology that is revolutionizing the skin resurfacing industry for both the face and body. 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 can be used on the face, neck, and body.
Opus Plasma treatments require half the downtime compared to the lengthy recovery times of traditional ablative CO2 skin resurfacing treatments and Opus Plasma has significantly less pain. The Opus Plasma procedure can be completed in under 15-30 minutes for each area treated and initial results are visible from the first treatment.
How does Opus Plasma work?
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 high voltage and when these pins are close to the skin, they react to atmospheric pressure in the air.
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 how microneedling works. However, this technology uses radiofrequency and microplasma instead of needles. The results are incredible!
New Technology for Opus Plasma
At Ideally You, we work hard to stay on the cutting edge of technology. We work hard to provide our clients with the very best that science and technology have to offer, and that’s why we’re proud to offer aesthetic services.
The Colibri applicator provides the highest power solution for treating fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. It also works as a non-surgical eyelift. This tool allows us to target hard-to-reach areas such as the periorbital and the perioral regions. In addition, this applicator provides a solution for saggy, lax, or excess skin, which previously would have required surgery to remove.
The Colibri applicator utilizes unipolar radiofrequency technology. This process produces microplasma sparks, which deliver energy through a specially shaped tip to create controlled micro-perforations. The process begins with micro-ablation damage, which causes skin contraction. The results are tighter, smoother skin. This treatment is a highly effective alternative to more invasive surgical procedures without prolonged downtime associated with typical treatments. We can’t wait to show you the difference it will make for you; call our office today for more information on how Colibri can help you meet your aesthetic goals.
Am I a good candidate for Opus Plasma?
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 clients have experienced dramatic results when treating age spots, crows’ feet, fine lines and wrinkles, minor scarring, acne scars 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.
What are the benefits of Opus Plasma?
Opus Plasma has many benefits; four pillars set Opus Plasma apart from other skin resurfacing treatments.
The first is little downtime. Opus Plasma clients 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 technician 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 15 minutes.
Finally, the fourth and most crucial benefit Opus Plasma offers is the impressive results. Although most patients reach optimal results after 2-3 sessions, results will be visible after your first treatment.
What Makes It Unique?
Unlike traditional skin resurfacing, Opus Laser utilizes advanced radiofrequency technology with plasma energy to give you better results in less time. The radiofrequency energy from treatment effectively targets the deeper layers of the skin for enhanced effective collagen stimulation. The combination of the two types of treatments results in improved skin tightness and smoothness.
The Opus Laser is also incredibly versatile and adaptable. Other laser treatments can achieve similar results, but the plasma energy allows for more precise and customized treatments. We can better control how the treatment interacts with your skin to give you desired results and provide you with the most comfortable experience possible.
What are the target areas for Opus Plasma?
Patients love Opus Plasma because it’s gentle enough to treat the face and neck, which are sometimes avoided with other treatments yet aggressive enough to tighten skin on the body for scars and stretch marks.
Opus Plasma is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin, such as the delicate skin around the eyes or above the lips (‘smokers lines’). This advanced technology offers an unparalleled level of customization due to its unique features. When you book your consultation, our Certified Technician will examine the areas you’d like treated and will help design a unique treatment plan to meet all of your skin and body goals.
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 clients can return to their regular schedule immediately after treatment and fully recover after 1-3 days.
How many treatments should I get?
To obtain the maximum benefits from this treatment, the protocol requires 3 treatment sessions—however, one of the best things about this treatment is that you will see improvement after every session. Of course, nothing can entirely stop the natural aging process, so most clients find that they will require ongoing maintenance sessions to sustain their results over time.
