If you’re looking for nonsurgical solutions to rejuvenate your skin, the Opus® Plasma® is a one-of-a-kind technology you should consider.
Yco Facial Plastic Surgery in Encinitas, California, offers in-office facial rejuvenation treatments with the Opus Plasma system. Mario Yco, MD, can use the Opus Plasma handpiece to resurface your skin and address a variety of issues that may affect your skin’s texture and appearance.
How Opus Plasma works
The Opus Plasma skin rejuvenation system by Alma® uses advanced technology to gently create microwounds in your skin to jumpstart your body’s own healing abilities. This form of “Plasma” is not the liquid drawn from blood. The OPUS Plasma refers to super-heated matter also known as the “fourth state of matter” - the three others being solid, liquid and gas. Lightning is a form of ionized gas also known as Plasma. The OPUS Radiofrequency creates this ionized gas called Plasma to resurface and tighten skin.
This first-of-its-kind technology combines radiofrequency energy and plasma energy to create small channels in your skin to stimulate the production of new collagen, which is essential in helping give skin its structure. By creating new supplies of collagen, this protein can help plump up your skin, improve its texture, and smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and creases.
Dr. Yco uses the Opus Plasma handpiece to deliver fractional plasma energy into problem areas of the face with a high level of precision. Unlike laser resurfacing technologies, Opus Plasma is safer for your skin and requires less downtime after the procedure.
Candidates for Opus Plasma treatments
The innovation of the Opus Plasma system allows Dr. Yco to use it on a variety of skin types, tones, and textures. The system’s versatility is ideal for treating a wide range of superficial to complex skin issues, including stretch marks and surgical scars.
We can safely use the Opus Plasma system to treat the delicate skin on your face with a high level of control. Dr. Yco can even use the system to stimulate new collagen growth on the fine skin around your eyes and on your lips.
He works with a high level of precision to optimize your results and can continually adjust the levels of energy moving into your skin to reduce your risk for inflammation or other possible side effects.
Candidates should have generally healthy skin that’s free from infection and disease to be considered a candidate for skin rejuvenation. Dr. Yco customizes a treatment plan to your specific needs after discussing your expectations and aesthetic goals. You may need more than one session to achieve your desired results.
Benefits of skin rejuvenation with Opus Plasma
The Opus Plasma system offers many benefits for people who want to improve the appearance and texture of their skin without invasive, surgical treatments.
In addition to being versatile enough to treat a variety of skin flaws of any skin type, treatment with Opus Plasma requires little downtime or recovery. A treatment can be as fast as 15 minutes, and we provide a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable during your procedure.
Since Dr. Yco can control the energy throughout your rejuvenation treatment, your risk for complications is reduced.
While it’s normal to experience mild to moderate redness and swelling for the first few days after treatment, you can expect to return to your usual activities without many limitations faster than you might with microneedling or other invasive skin rejuvenation procedures. It is recommended to get a series of 3 treatments spaced a month apart. With this package of 3 you will receive an Alastin Skincare Procedure Enhancement System with TriHex Technology kit to prepare your skin prior to and post treatment.
