Opus Plasma Specialist

Maria Flora G. Trimor-Tamoria, MD

Medical Aesthetics & Primary Care Physician located in National City, CA

The first practice in National City to purchase the OPUS plasma technology from Alma Lasers. Opus plasma treatment is the “game-changer” in aesthetics industry we are waiting for. It results in similar outcomes of many skin resurfacing treatment available in the market. One good thing about Opus plasma laser treatment unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing procedures,, it precisely controls the delivery of energy-to- tissue contact time preventing much inflammation and less downtime. The results are phenomenal without the pain and 50 per cent less downtime that comes with traditional skin resurfacing treatment. Opus plasma treatment takes the years off your face and body, creating a glowing youthful skin. There is no need for anesthesia but we use a high grade topical numbing agent for those with low pain threshold for more comfort and better management during the procedure. It can be used for all skin types. Thus, it applies to fair complexioned and darker looking skin. It is the first fractional skin resurfacing treatment that works well in darker skin types. Procedure lasts for fifteen minutes.

Opus Plasma Q & A

How does Opus Plasma Treatment work?

When the device is applied to the skin, the charged metal tips of the roller head are supercharged with high radiofrequency, at over 40 MHZ which reacts to atmospheric pressure and generates plasma right from the air creating tiny channels in the skin that in turn ablates the skin. As a result, fractional injuries in the microthermal zones of skin are generated and creates elastin and collagen production that provides the expected outcome, a highly oxygenated, brighter skin with a smooth glow. The procedure is spread 4-6 weeks apart and results in texture, laxity and tone are noticeable even after only one treatment. The slow build-up of collagen over time, called collagen remodeling will be gradually noticeable over three months post-procedure.

It treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles, soften deeper lines.

  • Skin laxity and sagging causes skin tightening

  • Crows feet and hooded eyes

  • Skin pigmentation and age spots

  • Dullness and skin texture<

  • Scarring and stretch marks

  • Acne scars and stretch marks

  • Marionette lines

  • Skin pores

It treats the face and body including face, shoulders, chest, arms, knees, and stretch marks on the abdomen.

It is also a good choice for addressing loose skin on the neck and for treating etched-in horizontal or “tech neck “ lines.

It comes with two different types of tips for use on either full-face or on smaller targeted areas like arms, knees, and stretch marks on the abdomen.

Results are noticeable after only one treatment, resulting in a healthy youthful-looking state. You may require a three-pack treatment package to achieve the “WOW” factor.

Skin exponentially improves over time, as new collagen builds up gradually, called collagen remodeling. Evidently, results are dramatically improved 3 to 5 months after the procedure as new collagen forms. Maintenance is required 6 months to a year after completion of treatment.

What are the side effects of OPUS plasma treatment?

  1. Redness like sunburn and swelling is noted for 24 to 48 hours.

  2. Dry and flaky skin on day 3 similar to what one expects with other procedures like a chemical peel. Most people are completely back to normal by day 5 or day 7.

Sunscreen is highly recommended for weeks thereafter. This procedure makes you highly susceptible to sunburn.

What to expect during treatment?

You will expect to feel a mild heat sensation and slight pressure during OPUS treatment.

What should one expect after an Opus Plasma treatment?

The procedure takes no more than 30 minutes. It also depends on how large of an area is being treated.

Is plasma skin resurfacing safe?

Opus Plasma Treatment offers a high level of customization for each patient. It operates at 40MHZ than any other brand in the market. It is extremely safe for each patient within the context of provider and client desired outcomes.

How much does the Opus Plasma Treatment Cost?

It depends on how many sessions are needed to achieve the desired outcome. We generally recommend three treatments for the “Wow effect” but results are noticeable after only one treatment. The number of procedures varies from one to three treatments.
