When it comes to repairing and renewing aging skin, laser-based skin resurfacing has been the treatment of choice for decades. While the results are rewarding, it can come at a price — days, if not weeks of downtime.
Like traditional, laser skin resurfacing, Opus Plasma removes a small fraction of the skin, which stimulates the surrounding skin to repair itself. But unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing technologies, Opus Plasma uses a one-of-a-kind Plasma technology that precisely controls the energy-to-tissue contact time, minimizing unwanted inflammation that often leads to longer recovery.
Enjoy fractional skin resurfacing results with much less downtime using Plasma, with Opus Plasma. We service the following areas in Antelope Valley: Lancaster, Quartz Hill, and Acton.
"I feel that have to review Dr Motlagh again for those who are looking for an excellent Primary care Dr. When I tell you she is THE best Dr I’ve ever had…… When I came to her, I was on several medications that provided the same benefit. She helped me with that. She reminded me of the importance of annual exams (Mammogram, blood work, and all the other physical requirements that should be checked annually) She provides excellent referrals if necessary and truly makes you feel a part of your own health care❤️ Thank you Dr Motlagh and staff. You guys are amazing❤️❤️❤️🤗"- S. / Google / Apr 27, 2023

What Is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing, most commonly using a laser, is the most dramatic nonsurgical procedure to repair and renew the skin to address a wide range of skin concerns. Fractional-based skin resurfacing is the modern skin resurfacing method that involves creating a pattern of microscopic injuries to a fraction of the skin. This stimulates a natural wound healing response exciting the skin to repair itself. The type of injury can vary depending on the type of fractional-based skin resurfacing technology used.
What Are The Benefits Of Plasma Skin Resurfacing?
There are a number of benefits associated with plasma skin resurfacing treatments with Opus Plasma technology, including:
- More youthful skin appearance
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Results without the downtime of a more invasive, surgical procedure
- Customized treatment plans
Why Opus Plasma?
Opus Plasma builds upon the popular and widely accepted science of fractional skin resurfacing and advances this field forward with an option that improves the patient experience using a novel, new energy source — Plasma. With Opus Plasma you can enjoy fractional skin resurfacing results with much less downtime.
What Should I Expect?
Opus Plasma is a quick, 15-minute outpatient treatment usually performed following application of a topical anesthetic. During your consultation your practitioner will assess your skin to personalize the best treatment plan for you. While you’ll begin to enjoy noticeable improvements following your first treatment, 2 to 3 treatments may be recommended for optimal results.
Is The Treatment Painful?
Depending on your treatment plan, the degree of discomfort will vary. Topical anesthetic may be recommended by your practitioner to numb the treatment area prior to the treatment to minimize any discomfort.
What Does Recovery Look Like?
This too will depend on the your treatment plan recommended by your practitioner. A clinical study has shown that Opus Plasma required 50%1 less downtime when compared to a fractional skin resurfacing technology using a laser. When using moderate settings, the downtime is minimal. You may experience 24 to 48 hours of mild to moderate redness and swelling — not significant to interfere with your daily activities.
The downtime also can depend on the individual. Those who want faster results and can tolerate more downtime, expect about a week for recovery - though most people can feel and look good after 24 hours. Patients who cannot tolerate a week of downtime may need more lower setting treatments. This procedure is very customizable to each individual.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Opus Plasma?
Opus Plasma was developed to be a versatile tool for your practitioner to address a wide demographic of patients of different age groups, skin types and skin concerns. Your practitioner can dial the energy up or down to personalize the right treatment plan for your needs.
How Is Opus Different from Using A Standard C02 Laser?
A patient will see very similar results but the recovery and downtime is far less when using Fractional Plasma. The Opus uses Fraction Plasma which means the devis ablates tiny channels with leaving much of the epidermis intact. This process allows you to look presentable in as little as 24 hours with makeup while having far less risk of infection. No bleeding, oozing and minimal crusting is typical when using Opus Plasma.
Which Products Are Suitable to Use After Opus Procedures?
After having an Opus procedure a patient's skin may look and feel sunburned so you will want to keep it moist. There are many great products that can assist in post Opus procedure care to keep your skin moist such as Environ's Super Moisturizer and Antioxident gel. The patient should try and stay out of direct sunlight, use an SPF 40 or greater while reapplying every two hours. Wearing protective accessories such as sunglasses and a sunhat will also help with protection against direct sunlight.
How long does an OPUS Plasma Skin Resurfacing session take?
The duration of an OPUS Plasma Skin Resurfacing session may vary based on the size of the treatment area and the specific concerns being addressed. In general, each session can last between 30 minutes to an hour. The number of recommended sessions will be determined during your consultation, depending on your skin's condition and desired results.
What is the downtime associated with OPUS Plasma Skin Resurfacing?
One of the significant advantages of OPUS Plasma Skin Resurfacing is its minimal downtime. Following the procedure, you may experience some redness and mild swelling, which typically resolves within a few days. Patients can often resume their regular activities shortly after treatment, but it's essential to follow post-treatment guidelines provided by your skincare specialist.
When will I see results, and how long do they last?
Results from OPUS Plasma Skin Resurfacing become noticeable within a few weeks as collagen production increases and the skin's texture improves. The skin continues to improve over the following months, and results can last up to a year or more with proper skincare maintenance. Periodic touch-up sessions can help prolong the effects.
