OPUS® PLASMA RESURFACING
Opus Plasma Resurfacing is a cutting edge skin resurfacing treatment using Fractional Plasma technology to improve the quality of skin by improving the appearance of acne scars, reversing sun damage, removing superficial wrinkles and fine lines, and improving your skin's overall tone and texture.
In addition to the Fractional Plasma® skin resurfacing, Opus® simultaneously infuses a state of the art radio frequency treatment to boost collagen production and create stronger, smoother skin that continues to tighten for 6-months following each treatment.
How long does the procedure take?
While the procedure time varies based on the areas being treated, a simple treatment under the eyes takes approximately 10 minutes once the topical numbing has taken effect, whereas a full face treatment will take closer to 30 minutes.
How long is the recovery process?
Redness and swelling are normal following an Opus Plasma treatment, but recovery will vary from patient to patient depending on the intensity of their individual treatment.
For patients looking for exceptional results from a single treatment, anticipate approximately 5-7 days of recovery while the skin calms and swelling subsides.
This procedure can also be done with lower energy settings over multiple visits, allowing for a shorter healing period following each treatment. In these situations a patient can expect closer to 1-2 days of mild redness and possible swelling.
Avoid exercise or strenuous activity to prevent any perspiration from irritating the skin.
What should I expect following the procedure?
The treatment areas may be sensitive, itchy or slightly sore following treatment. Your skin may also weep following a strong treatment.
When Can I Begin Wearing Makeup?
You may begin wearing makeup 48 hours following the procedure once the skin has established a healing barrier over the treated areas.
When Can I Return to Work?
Patients can typically return to work as soon as they are comfortable.
Important Information about Sun Exposure
Avoid any sun exposure for 2 weeks. Unprotected sun exposure during the first 6 months can cause the skin to darken (hyperpigment). After the skin has completely healed it is incredibly important to wear a hat and SPF of 30 or greater. Absolutely no sunbathing during the first six months after your treatment.
