Skin resurfacing attracts nearly one million Americans each year. As a versatile skin revitalizing treatment, resurfacing can address a wide range of conditions, including wrinkle reduction and improved brightness.
While laser resurfacing dominates the field, New Tampa Wellness Clinic offers Opus Plasma radiofrequency (RF) treatments. This noninvasive approach uses heat, micro-ablative, and fractional RF plasma to introduce tiny skin disruptions that stimulate new tissue growth.
RF energy covers a wide range of frequencies. In fact, microwave ovens use a subset of the RF spectrum to excite water molecules and heat food.
So, how does this apply to skin treatments? The penetrating and heating properties of RF energy permit Opus to work on four distinct levels, treating your skin’s surface as well as its support layers.
Opus Plasma is a fractional RF source, using energy divided into many tiny sections rather than delivering the full power of the beam on a single location. That approach offers the beneficial effects of Opus Plasma without causing widespread damage to the skin like other resurfacing methods and ablative laser treatments. The primary benefit of fractional RF treatment is the minimal downtime for recovery.
While your body rebuilds the collagen matrix that supports your skin’s outer layers, you’ll see a net decline in collagen starting in your late 20s or early 30s. The fractional stimulation provided by the Opus Plasma applicator creates micro-injuries that trigger collagen formation.
You begin to see results shortly after your first treatment, with benefits continuing to emerge in the weeks after. Add a second or third session, and you will see more dramatic improvements. New collagen formation addresses skin flaws like:
These benefits are in addition to the adjustable skin resurfacing features of the Opus system. Your body continuously turns over skin cells. As these build up, they dull your skin’s appearance and even contribute to adult acne. We can match the strength of your treatment to the needs of your skin. That is one of the unique and proprietary features of Opus RF and the Plasma applicator.
A complete facial treatment with the Opus system typically takes about 15 minutes. You’ll see results sooner and with less recovery downtime than with comparable ablative lasers. Opus is safe for all skin types and age groups.
