Refresh Aesthetics is proud to proclaim that we have been selected as the Eastern Utah Brand Partner of Alma Opus! Alma Opus uses cutting-edge technology to deliver speedy, effective results! Alma Opus is the first ever skin resurfacing device to employ fractional plasma technology.
This post discusses the effects of Alma Opus, including how long before you see them, how long they last, and what side effects come along with them.
What is Alma Opus?
Not to be confused with exclusively plasma devices, Opus Plasma from Alma Laser is the first fractional technology to hit the market. Compared to other skin resurfacing techniques, using RF in conjunction with “microplasma” energy enables us to address skin quality and texture issues in less time and with less downtime for the patient.
The metal pins on the Alma Opus Plasma tips are super-charged with high voltage and operate at a high frequency of over 40MHz; when in close proximity to the skin, the charged pins react to atmospheric pressure in the air, creating plasma that, in turn, produces the microthermal zones of fractional injuries.
Alma Opus therapy resurfaces the skin safely and efficiently in various settings by delivering radiofrequency radiation at multiple intensities to personalize treatment for your unique skincare needs. We can safely and effectively treat the face, neck, décolleté, stomach, and other body parts.
How It Works
To address skin texture, wrinkles, scars, hooded eyelids, and stretch marks, Alma Opus uses a combination of RF (radio frequency) and microplasma energy.
The system stimulates the synthesis of collagen to treat skin issues using high-frequency, unipolar technology. No recovery time is required after the treatment, which lasts between 10 and 30 minutes. You will notice effects after your first appointment, though you could need several treatments.
The machine emits radiofrequency energy at various intensities, and your treatments are tailored to your unique skincare problems. The face, neck, décolleté, stomach, and numerous other body parts can all be treated with the gadget.
Each treatment removes 30% of your melasma or sun damage. Over five minutes, a little wheel rolls across most of your skin. It emits fractionated plasma energy, which causes tiny red spots on your skin.
These spots eventually become brown and fall off, carrying 30% of the sun damage with them. The treatment removes the bulk of your sun damage from any part of your body by repeating the technique three times. Usually, numbing cream is used topically, and cool air is used throughout the procedure.
Avoid the sun after your treatment, wear sunscreen, and refrain from wearing makeup for the first few hours.
The Alma Opus Effects
Being a revolutionary treatment, it is not surprising that many still have questions about the effects of Alma Opus.
How Long Before Results Appear?
Although you will start to see effects after just one treatment, the best outcomes come from a course of two to three treatments.
The patient feedback regarding how easily and quickly they can see results after receiving Opus Plasma skin treatment makes it so attractive. They claim that tangible benefits can be seen after two to three sessions. Their skin is tighter, their wrinkles are almost entirely gone, and they now have a vibrant bounce to them that had previously been lacking.
Even though natural aging will occur and new wrinkles may develop in various locations throughout the face, it is vital to remember that the benefits are long-lasting. To maintain the fantastic effects that have already been seen, additional sessions might be required in the future.
Is There Recovery and Downtime?
Opus Plasma treatments require less recovery time than other skin laser procedures since less irritation is created during the operation. Radio-frequency radiation heats the collagen receptors in the deep dermal levels while the plasma works to reduce the rate of inflammation.
When we are younger, there is a large amount of the organic protein collagen created. Collagen helps to replenish and maintain the skin’s radiance and vitality. It is the primary defense against the pesky wave of lines and wrinkles.
Our ability to produce collagen, however, rapidly declines with age; by the time we are 65, this reduction will be 25%. Contrarily, after an Alma Opus Plasma therapy, the energizing heat from the radio-frequency radiation stimulates our dormant collagen receptors, suddenly supplying our body with a new, wealthy supply of collagen.
You might notice a tiny bit of redness or swelling on or nearby the treated regions throughout the following 24 to 48 hours. The next day or two should see a reduction in this, which is entirely normal.
The recommended course of action is to continue avoiding all UV exposure for the next two weeks following your treatment because your skin is now particularly sensitive to intense sun rays. We advise using sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 50 if you must spend significant time outside. Stop using any abrasive products, like retinol or hydroquinone, for those two weeks as well.
