Understanding The Opus Plasma
Opus is a hybrid Radiofrequency + Plasma device. It uses RF energy to penetrate into the dermal layer, stimulating fibroblast activity. Fibroblasts control the formation of new collagen and elastin in the skin creating a tightening effect. At the same time, the specialized tip on the opus causes a fractionated plasma spark, creating a small controlled injury on the skin forcing a healing response. The result is smoothing and brightening of the epidermal layer of the skin.
Determining Opus Plasma Candidacy
Radiofrequency + Plasma using the Opus Plasma is a great option for patients of all ages and skin types! This procedure yields great results for all with high patient satisfaction to reduce signs of aging, sun damage, and stretch marks.
Cosmetic and Medical use of the Opus Plasma
Depending on the patient’s needs, Plasma can be used on the face, neck, decolletage, abdomen, and around the eyes and mouth. Radiofrequency + Plasma is a new but very safe technology helping many to enhance their natural beauty.
The Opus Plasma Treatment Process
Patients arrive at Lush Dental Co. and after a consultation will begin a numbing process. Patients will have their face cleansed, then numbing cream will be applied. Once numb, a trained professional will roll the Plasma device over the skin. After the procedure moisturizer will be provided and the healing begins!
This treatment works best in a series, but results and number of treatments will depend on skin condition and patient goals. Resurfacing results can be seen in two weeks, but the tightening and plumping will require multiple sessions.
Healing time can range from two days to a week depending on setting used to achieve desired effects. Healing time can be reduced by keeping the skin bathed in moisturized for the first 48 hours and with frequent lotioning the days following. Makeup should not be worn for the first 24-36 hours.
Directly following the Opus Plasma procedure patients will feel like they have a sunburn with some mild to moderate discomfort. The discomfort fades in about one day.
