Alma Opus MANUFACTURER NOTES
WHAT IS OPUS PLASMA/HOW DOES IT WORK
The first-of-its-kind fractional plasma technology, Opus Plasma represents a new chapter for energy-based devices, addressing global or localized textural and skin quality concerns often corrected with conventional fractional resurfacing lasers in the past
- Operating at a high frequency of over 40MHz, the metal pins on the Opus Plasma tips are super-charged with high-voltage
- When in close proximity of the skin, the charged pins react to atmospheric pressure in the air, creating plasma that in turn, creates the microthermal zones of fractional injuries
- Our Opus treatment delivers radio frequency energy at multiple levels to customize a treatment for your specific skincare concerns, using a range of settings to safely and effectively resurface the skin
- Able to treat face, neck, decollete, hands, stomachs, etc.
DOES IT HURT/WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME
- We will apply a numbing cream before the treatment to make you as comfortable as possible, but you may still feel mild heat and pressure during the treatment
- We also offer and highly recommend a prescription numbing cream
- After a consultation, our Nurse will write you a prescription that we call in to Wellspring. This numbing cream is around $40 and allows us to turn up the machine resulting in a much better treatment
- Most people tolerate the treatment well
- You may experience some redness, but you can go back to your usual routine immediately after the treatment
- You will appear to have a sunburn look
- Your specialists will talk to you about aftercare at your consultation
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED
- We are getting incredible results as soon as the first treatment, however for maximum results we are recommending 3-4 treatments
- The results of Opus Plasma Spark are permanent
- Natural aging will still occur, so to maintain results you can have a maintenance treatment as often as every 6 months
Fine lines and wrinkles
Alma Inc announces the North American release of Opus, a new modern aesthetic platform featuring the company’s proprietary high-frequency unipolar radio-frequency technology, Opus Plasma.
Reportedly the first-of-its-kind fractional plasma technology, Opus Plasma is engineered to address global or localized textural and skin quality concerns often corrected with conventional fractional resurfacing lasers in the past.
It is reportedly the first fractional plasma technology to enter the fractional resurfacing category, according to the company in a news release.
“Fractional plasma will change how we think about resurfacing. If full-field CO2 technology was resurfacing 1.0, and fractional technology was resurfacing 2.0, fractional plasma technology is resurfacing 3.0,” says Jeffrey Hsu, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist at Oak Dermatology in the Greater Chicago Area.
“I can produce results to match the most aggressive CO2 laser or the gentlest laser peel in a fraction of the procedure time and much less patient downtime. The results we’re seeing with Opus Plasma are quite impressive, even after just one treatment,” he adds.
Operating at a high frequency of over 40MHz, the metal pins on the Opus Plasma tips are super-charged with high-RF voltage. When in close proximity of the skin, the RF-charged pins react to atmospheric pressure in the air, creating plasma that in turn, creates the microthermal zones of fractional injuries.
The plasma intensity can be adjusted based on the desired ablation effect, which further expands the versatility of the technology – a light, moderate or aggressive resurfacing result can be achieved based on the desired outcome and patient skin type, per the release.
