Skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical procedure to repair and renew your skin treating a variety of skin concerns. Fractional skin resurfacing involves creating a pattern of microscopic injucries to the skin stimulating the natural wound healing response leading to the skin to reapir itself. Plasma is a new energy source that provides amazing results with much less downtime as compared to CO2 lasers.
To simplify- CO2 laser is good, Fractional CO2 is better and Opus Plasma is the best
Prior to the treatment, we will discuss your skin goals and personalize your treatment plan. We then apply a topical numbing medication follow by the Opus Plasma. The Opus Plasma treatment is a quick, 15-minute treatment that involves rolling a hand held applicator to your skin creating the micro injuries.
When it comes to repairing and renewing aging skin, laser-based technology has been the treatment of choice for decades. Traditional methods, such as CO2 and Fractional CO2 laser renew the skin but at the cost of lengthy downtime. With Opus, we have all the benefits of traditional methods with much less downtime. Clinical studies have shown that Opus Plasma required 50% less downtime!
In terms of treatment time, Opus is superior because it takes 15 minutes to perform as opposed to 1 hour.
Opus Plasma removes a small fraction of the skin which stimulates the surrounding skin to repair itself using of kind Plasma technology that precisely controls the energy to the tissue contact time, minimizing unwanted inflammation that often leads to longer recovery.
Your recovery depends on your skin goals and settings used. When using moderate settings patients experience 24-48 hours of mild to moderate redness and swelling that won’t interfere with your daily activities.
Yes!!! Opus Plasma is effective for all skin types. With darker skin we do recommend a topical medication to prevent hyperpigmentation.
