The Opus Plasma device operates at over 40MHz and charges the tiny metal pins on the tip of the device to a high radiofrequency voltage. The technique is similar to microneedling but far more advanced with exceptional precision and unique in its capabilities to control the time that contact is made with the skin. This minimizes unwanted and unnecessary inflammation that typically leads to longer recovery times. The adjustable intensity makes it incredibly versatile for treating light, moderate, or aggressive skin concerns, addressing both superficial and complex textural and skin-quality issues traditionally corrected with conventional fractional resurfacing lasers or full-field ablative resurfacing lasers.
Because the treatment’s intensity can be adjusted, almost anyone with skin concerns is a good candidate for an Opus Plasma procedure. Depending on the setting used, it produces results similar to an aggressive CO2 laser or a gentle laser peel with less downtime and a higher safety profile.
The Opus Plasma treatment and recovery time is minimal compared to other laser treatments with benefits including:
- Reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose and saggy skin,
- Rejuvenation of the skin,
- Minimized appearance of surgical and acne scars,
- Ability to treat the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.
The Opus Plasma offers unparalleled versatility by being able to treat different parts of the body, including the face, neck, stomach, legs, and buttocks., including face, neck, stomach, legs, and buttocks. It works for most skin types for men and women who want to reverse sun damage and the natural aging process. You can be in and out of an Opus Plasma appointment in 15 minutes!

What is Opus Plasma?
The Opus Plasma is an innovative radiofrequency skin resurfacing technology using microplasma energy to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and acne scars.
What Happens During an Opus Plasma Treatment?
We start your treatment session by applying a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort during your procedure. When the skin is numb, the provider glides the Opus Plasma hand device across the skin. After the procedure, we apply a protective balm. Patients notice some slight redness and swelling after the treatment for 24-48 hours. Downtime may be extended with more aggressive treatment settings. You can typically see results after one treatment; however, we recommend 2-3 treatments to achieve optimal results.
Am I a good candidate?
Anyone seeking skin resurfacing treatment is a good candidate for Opus Plasma. It can treat most skin types and is highly effective and beneficial for both men and women.
How does Opus Plasma work?
The innovative platform combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with plasma created when the RF energy emitted from the tips of metal pins reacts to atmospheric pressure. These tiny metal pins make very small micro-injuries on the skin while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged and producing new collagen and elastin, which build new, youthful skin.
Is the Opus Plasma treatment painful?
Most patients tolerate the Opus Plasma treatment, but a topical anesthetic is applied to alleviate discomfort.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments varies. We can determine a unique treatment plan tailormade for you during your consultation.
How long does each treatment take?
Each treatment time varies based on your skincare goals and the size treatment area. Treatment time can also be discussed during your custom consultation.
Is there downtime after treatment?
Downtime varies based upon your individualized treatment plan. Redness and swelling will typically be present for 24-48 hours.
When will I see the results?
You can see noticeable improvements after one treatment. Best results are seen after three treatments.
