What You Need To Know About Opus Fractional Plasma
We use fast and effective technology!
Opus Plasma represents the next generation of fractional skin resurfacing treatments for women and men of most skin types who want to minimize wrinkles and reverse damage caused by the sun and the natural aging process. The procedure’s versatility enables us to adjust treatment intensity from light to aggressive, depending on the patient’s skin condition and goals. The innovative platform combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with plasma created when the RF energy emitted from the tips of metal pins react to atmospheric pressure. 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 radiofrequency energy makes contact with the skin. This minimizes unwanted inflammation that typically leads to longer recovery times.
What can you expect?
Before The Treatment
During a consultation, you will discuss your skincare goals with your practitioner, as well as discuss the technology that we use, any health concerns that you may have, and all questions you’d like answered. Please be mindful that there are contraindications for laser hair removal that you’ll need to make our medical professionals aware of should they apply to you. For instance, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have Psoriasis, blood disorders, severe reactions to histamines, vitiligo, or have had procedures such as chemical peels recently. Ask our medical aesthetician and be sure to ask your doctor if you think you are pregnant or are breastfeeding.
During The Treatment
We begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the target area to minimize discomfort during the session. The topical anesthetic stays on the skin for 30-60 minutes. Once the skin is numb, we glide the Opus Plasma handpiece across the skin to emit the radiofrequency and plasma energy. Once the procedure is finished, we apply a protective balm. Patients usually notice some slight redness and swelling after the treatment, but it resolves on its own within 24 to 48 hours in most cases. More aggressive treatment settings can extend the downtime.
After The Treatment
You may experience 24 to 48 hours of mild to moderate redness and swelling — not significant to interfere with your daily activities. However, clients typically won’t see full results in one treatment alone, which is why we offer packages of 3 treatments. After your first treatment, you can expect to wait four weeks until your next treatment.

Across the country we have seen anyone from their early 20s all the
