What is Opus Plasma®?
Opus Plasma® skin resurfacing offers many skin-renewing benefits. The Opus Plasma® skin resurfacing treatment can restore your skin’s health and make it look younger. Our LifeHope Healing Med Spa team has extensive experience using Opus Plasma® to tighten the skin around the eyes, brows, cheeks, jawline, and neck.
At LifeHope Healing Med Spa, we’re always adding new, cutting-edge treatments to our service menu. The Opus Plasma® is one of them. Opus Plasma® handpiece is the first-of-its-kind Fractional Plasma® technology to enter the skin resurfacing market. Interested in how the treatment works and what to expect? Here’s what you need to know.
This skin resurfacing system combines radiofrequency and microplasma energy to improve skin texture and quality. It has less downtime and a higher safety profile than conventional fractional resurfacing lasers or full-field ablative resurfacing lasers.
Did you know that after age 20, our collagen production decreases by 1% a year? This is one of the major causes of wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and other signs of aging. Using Opus Plasma®, you can remove dead skin cells that clog your pores and stimulate collagen production for anti-aging effects.
This handheld device utilizes metal pins charged with radiofrequency energy. A plasma-like phenomenon is created when the device’s energy reacts with the atmosphere. As a result of the charged RF energy, your skin has a rejuvenating effect that does not require any downtime.
The Opus Plasma® device is commonly used to treat the face, but it can also be used to treat other parts of the body, such as the neck, décolleté, hands, and stomach. Since it helps address skin laxity and scarring, it can also help patients minimize the look of stretch marks.
How does it work?
With Opus Plasma®, you can get the results of aggressive ablative laser treatment and a gentle peel at the same time. The main objective of this treatment is to reset the clock at the cellular level, causing your skin to appear much younger than it is. Our expert providers can customize the treatment based on your unique skin concerns since it delivers energy at several levels. The best results will likely be achieved after three to four treatments, although you may notice a difference after one treatment.
Opus Plasma® does not reverse the natural aging process. However, maintenance treatments every six to twelve months can help you maintain your results. Typically, Opus Plasma® is performed on the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and stomach by our expert providers. The treatment is not painful, but a topical anesthetic may be used to numb the area and reduce discomfort.
In most cases, Opus Plasma® treatments take between 20 and 30 minutes to complete. You may experience mild swelling and redness after receiving the treatment. However, your side effects will resolve quickly, allowing you to immediately return to work and your daily responsibilities.
What are the benefits of Skin Resurfacing with Opus Plasma®?
Many people compare the Opus Plasma® device to popular laser resurfacing treatments. The type of energy used is what makes the difference. The Opus Plasma® system uses fractional plasma energy instead of light energy. There are many advantages to Opus Plasma® because of its unique energy source:
- Laser resurfacing treatments can damage deep skin layers and result in 2-3 weeks of downtime afterward. The Opus Plasma® device does not require any downtime because it only affects the top layer of skin.
- Most lasers can only be used on people with fair skin. The Opus Plasma® device can be used on all skin tones, creating more potential patients and an alternative for those who cannot use lasers.
- The Opus Plasma® treatment is highly customizable. Our providers can tailor the treatment to meet your skincare needs by adjusting the amount of energy it emits.
- The Opus Plasma® device is an alternative to laser skin resurfacing and can be placed closer to the eyes. It helps patients reduce fine lines and crow’s feet around the delicate eye area.
- The Opus Plasma® offers visible results after just one treatment, with optimal results after two or three treatments.
Is Opus Plasma® safe?
Yes! Due to the doctor’s ability to adjust the fractional plasma intensity, the Opus Plasma® treatment is exceptionally safe. You can also carry on with your day after treatment since there is no downtime.

It takes only 15-30 minutes to complete the skin resurfacing procedure. It will not take more than one hour for the entire session to be completed.
How long does it take to see results?
Many of our patients see a difference in their skin’s appearance and texture after one treatment, but we recommend three to four consecutive sessions spaced four to six weeks apart for best results.
How long do the results last?
The results are permanent, but it does not stop the natural aging process. That’s why we recommend you visit our Alpharetta, GA, office every 6-12 months for a touch-up appointment. You can maintain your results over time with these annual or biannual appointments.
