Skin resurfacing treatments have grown in popularity over the last several years as they can effectively treat a variety of skin concerns. While there are many variations of these treatments on the market, the majority often come with long downtimes or side effects. Opus Plasma skin resurfacing offers the benefits of skin resurfacing with more minimal downtime.

What Is Opus Plasma?

Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing combines fractional skin resurfacing with plasma technology. The device creates tiny injuries in the skin in order to stimulate the production of collagen to heal the wound. The Opus Plasma device has small metal pins on the end of it that emit plasma energy when placed near the skin. This combination triggers your skin to begin the healing process, leading to more toned and rejuvenated skin.

Skin resurfacing such as Opus Plasma can treat a variety of skin concerns throughout the body. This includes reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out skin, improving skin laxity, and even treat stretch marks. Opus Plasma is not limited to just treating the face, and it can also be used on the neck, arms, legs, and stomach. During your consultation, your provider can examine the areas you want treated to see if Opus Plasma can help.

Who Is a Candidate?

Opus Plasma can be used on all skin types and tones. Depending on the concerns you are trying to address, you may need more than one treatment. During your consultation at Asia Pacific Plastic Surgery, it will be determined if Opus Plasma will be suitable for you. You may be a good candidate if you want to:

  • Even your skin tone
  • Reduce acne scars
  • Have softer skin
  • Eliminate stretch marks
  • Have firmer skin 


How does it work?

Before your treatment, a topical numbing solution will be applied to keep you comfortable during the process. Then the handheld device will be used across your face or desired treatment area. The average session is between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area. After the treatment, there is no downtime, and you can immediately resume your regular activities.

Is there any after care?

Unlike some laser treatments, the after-care for Opus Plasma is minimal. You may experience some redness or swelling after your treatment which should naturally disappear on its own within a few days. During the initial recovery period, sunlight should be avoided as well as some skincare products that may adversely affect your results.

When will I see results?

Many patients notice results immediately after their first session. Results may increase over the first few weeks, and you may see continued results for six months after treatment. To achieve the ideal results, you may require more than one treatment. This can be spaced out two to four weeks apart. During your initial consultation, the number of treatments you will need will be discussed, and a treatment place will be developed to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
