The innovative platform combines radio frequency (RF) energy with plasma created when the RF energy emitted from the tips of metal pins react to atmospheric pressure.
Like other laser skin resurfacing treatments, Opus Plasma removes only a fraction of the skin in the targeted area. Fractional skin resurfacing creates thousands of tiny micro-injuries to the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. The body’s natural healing response repairs these controlled wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, the building blocks of smooth, youthful-looking skin. Unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing technologies, however, Opus Plasma precisely controls the time that radio frequency energy makes contact with the skin. This minimizes unwanted inflammation that typically leads to longer recovery times.
