Opus Plasma VS Microneedling

When it comes to skin rejuvenation, people often have different opinions on which procedures are worth it and which aren’t. Read this article to learn everything there is to know about Opus Plasma and microneedling.

What is microneedling, and how does it work?

Microneedling is a treatment that uses small needles to create tiny holes in your skin. These punctures create small channels in the skin, allowing for more rapid absorption of topical treatments. We can use microneedling to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, treat acne and scars, decrease pigmentation, or even heal hair loss. It’s a skin-rejuvenating procedure that triggers collagen production in the skin. 

What is Opus Plasma, and how does it work?

The Alma Opus Plasma is a non-invasive procedure that delivers benefits similar to deep dermal resurfacing without downtime. The Opus system doesn’t use a laser to resurface your skin. Instead, the handheld device uses fractional plasma technology to create tiny channels in your skin, forcing your skin to produce collagen so it can trigger the healing process and make your skin look more youthful and healthier. The treatment reduces or eliminates scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This procedure can also treat dark circles under the eyes and some forms of acne.

How is Opus Plasma different than a resurfacing laser treatment?

Opus Plasma skin resurfacing has a significantly shorter downtime than laser resurfacing. Within five days of your procedure, your skin will be ready to return to normal. Also, laser and other skin resurfacing methods cannot penetrate as deep into the skin as Opus Plasma. Due to the tiny needles used in Opus Plasma, we can apply the treatment on small areas of the skin. Like other laser skin resurfacing treatments, only a fraction of the skin in the targeted area is removed by Opus Plasma. It creates thousands of tiny micro-injuries to the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. The results will last up to three years, and your skin will heal faster! The Opus Plasma treatment is a fantastic investment in your skin since it involves less downtime, faster healing, and longer-lasting results.

Who is a good candidate for Opus Plasma?

Opus Plasma is perfect for someone in good health and is a non-smoker. It’s also appealing to anyone who intends to reverse the signs of aging, who wants to improve their skin’s appearance or needs some scar reduction. Opus Plasma will also help reduce stretch marks on the skin. There is a huge demand for effective skin resurfacing treatments, but in the past, many people who wanted to get such treatment would go without because it was too painful or inconvenient. With Opus Plasma, we can reduce downtime and pain so that you can return to your daily life with little disruption. We’ve seen some incredible results with Opus Plasma when dealing with age spots, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Opus Plasma is safe and effective on all skin types and can be used year-round, meaning it could work for almost anyone!

Is Opus Plasma better than microneedling?

Microneedling is an excellent cosmetic choice for improving wrinkles, lines, and acne scars. However, Opus Plasma uses high-frequency radiofrequency and microplasma technology, creating more precise skin micro-punctures. Which allows us to target small areas of skin with these tiny needles. A few focal points are wrinkles around your eyes, droopy eyelids, and sagging skin, like on your neck. Opus Plasma can even treat stretch marks and acne scars. It can also be used on the face and sensitive areas like the eyes and lips, unlike microneedling. It can provide quicker, more dramatic, and long-lasting results than microneedling treatment. 

Anything else to know about microneedling at LifeHope Healing Med Spa?

At LifeHope Healing Med Spa, microneedling is often combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which enhances results and healing time. There are many growth factors and platelets in PRP. Injecting the PRP directly into the treatment area or applying it to the skin during microneedling can dramatically improve your skin texture, and it can help stimulate collagen.



How long do Opus Plasma results last?

The treatments are permanent, but they do not stop the aging process. You should see us every 6-12 months for a touch-up session. You can maintain your results over time with these annual or biannual appointments.

What is Opus Plasma good for?

Opus Plasma can be used for various skin concerns. These include fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, or uneven skin tone. With Opus Plasma, it doesn’t matter what skin type you have; everyone can benefit from it.

Can Opus Plasma be combined with any other treatment?

Opus Plasma™ can be combined with PRP at LifeHope Healing Med Spa. In our initial consultation, we can discuss your treatment options based on your skin and appearance. Depending on your unique aesthetic goals, we may also recommend other treatments that will make you feel younger, healthier, and more confident again.

Is there any post-care advice for microneedling and Opus Plasma?

We suggest that you follow these instructions for a minimum of 24 hours following treatment to ensure proper healing:

  • Sunlight, saunas, hot tubs, and any heat, as well as exposure to harmful UV radiation, should be avoided
  • Swimming or immersing your face in the water is not recommended
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Keep your skin dry and avoid using any products!
  • Exercise and other activities that promote sweating should be avoided
