Opus Plasma

What is Opus Plasma?

Skin resurfacing laser treatments have long been the most impactful way to repair and renew your skin without surgery. And it still is – but fractional-based skin resurfacing takes a big step forward. This modern method stimulates a natural healing response, signaling the skin to repair itself. Opus Plasma uses fractional plasma technology to deliver the same results as a deep skin resurfacing treatment without the downtime.


How does Opus Plasma laser treatment work?

We lose 1% of our collagen production every year after we turn 20, and this drop is one of the biggest reasons why we develop fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Opus Plasma is an innovative treatment that combines two powerful forces – plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy – to heal the skin both on the surface and deep within.

During treatment, the radiofrequency energy emitted from the metal pins of the Opus Plasma device reacts with the air and generates plasma. This plasma then creates tiny channels (or “micro-injuries”) in your skin to stimulate new collagen production. Because the RF energy delivered by the Opus Plasma device is fractional, it only treats a fraction of an area at a time, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed for even faster healing.

How is the Opus laser different from other skin resurfacing treatments?

What sets Opus Plasma apart from other skin resurfacing treatments is this combination of plasma and RF energy, which reaches the underlying layers of the dermis to boost collagen production. The plasma treats more superficial layers of the skin at the same time, giving you smoother, younger-looking skin without the longer recovery of other skin resurfacing treatments.

What does Opus Plasma treat?

Opus Plasma treatment is customizable and can be precisely adjusted to address a wide range of concerns on your face or body, including:

• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Loose, sagging skin
• Crow’s feet
• Dark spots
• Acne scars
• Stretch marks
• Large pores
• Dull skin
• Uneven texture

What can I expect during Opus treatment?

Your Forefront dermatologist will apply a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort ahead of time. Once numbed, most patients only report feeling some warmth during the treatment.

Opus Plasma treatment is quick – usually just 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. You should begin to see noticeable improvement after your first treatment, especially as collagen production continues over the following weeks. You will likely need three treatments spaced a month apart for optimal results.

What is Opus Plasma recovery like?

Here’s where Opus Plasma really stands out! Clinical studies show that Opus Plasma requires 50% less downtime than other laser skin resurfacing technologies. You may experience 24-48 hours of mild to moderate redness and swelling, but nothing significant enough to interfere with your busy life.

Your skin will be especially sensitive to UV rays, so avoid any direct sun exposure and be sure to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen for at least two weeks after treatment.
