Which Areas Can Be Treated with Opus Plasma®?￼
The shape of our face and the quality of our skin continually change as we go through life. When we’re young, skin is plump because it contains an abundance of collagen, but the body no longer produces as much collagen as we get older, meaning that the skin gets thinner, weaker, and more prone to wrinkles. The tone and texture of the skin are also adversely affected by sun exposure, other weather conditions, natural stretching or pulling during facial movements, gravity, and more factors. Given that there are so many elements working to make skin appear older and damaged, there’s now a treatment that allows you to revitalize your skin without the need for lasers: Opus Plasma®. What are the benefits of Opus Plasma®? Newton patients who are curious about what this device can do for the skin can keep reading for more information about this energy-based, non-laser device and what it can do.
As the skin becomes thinner, drier, and less flexible over time, sun-exposed areas such as the face, neck, and arms may be affected. The skin below the eyes is particularly prone to showing the effects of aging, wear, and tear because of how thin and fragile it is. Also, as skin loses elasticity and deflates, it may sag around the cheeks and jawline area. Aging, weight fluctuations or pregnancy may also cause sagging skin or stretch marks on areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and upper arms.
Opus Plasma® combines two technologies—radiofrequency energy and plasma—to deliver heat while creating tiny fractional injuries that extend below the surface. This triggers regeneration of important components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to improve the condition of the skin. It’s most effective for reducing fine lines and acne scars, along with other concerns.
Opus Plasma® targets specific, localized areas—including hard-to-reach areas on the face and body. The most common features where the energy-based skin resurfacing treatment device is used include the cheeks, jawline, upper neck, forehead, arms, abdomen, thighs, under-eye area, and lower face.
