Benefits of Opus Plasma Laser Resurfacing
Opus Plasma is the first of its kind, offering a fractional plasma technology that addresses both superficial and complex skin concerns. Fractional laser treatments target a percentage of cells for more gentle treatment and easier recovery, while ablative lasers vaporize targeted tissues for greater efficacy and more impactful results. Opus facial treatment offers similar results to ablative lasers without significant downtime, allowing patients to treat skin quality and texture issues that normally require a more invasive laser technology.
The Opus technology is highly customizable and offers treatment for a broad spectrum of skin problems, ranging from fine lines and wrinkles to uneven or rough skin, acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
What to Expect During the Opus Plasma Laser Procedure
The length of your Opus Plasma resurfacing depends on your concerns and the targeted area of your face, neck, chest or hands. Complete Opus facial treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes. Dr. Nima Naghshineh will apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. High-frequency, unipolar RF (radiofrequency) energy is then used to form micro-injuries in the skin that promote your body’s natural healing response to create new collagen. Opus Plasma provides unparalleled precision and control throughout the treatment, in turn reducing post-treatment inflammation and length of treatment.
Patients typically see noticeable changes a few days after their Opus Plasma laser treatment, and results continue to improve for several weeks. Dr. Naghshineh typically recommends a series of three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart for optimal results. You may have redness and swelling for up to three days, but there is no significant downtime or recovery period. Most patients return to their regular routine right after their Opus Plasma appointment, and with good skin care, Opus Plasma results may last months or years.
Discuss your skin care regimen with Dr. Naghshineh to determine the best way to lengthen your results and follow your post-treatment instructions for the best outcome. It’s recommended you stay hydrated, avoid smoking and prolonged sun exposure and use sunscreen. Dermal fillers and injectables are complementary anti-aging treatments that can provide further facial rejuvenation.
