Enhance Your Facial Complexion With Opus® Plasma Skin Resurfacing
New cosmetic skin treatments are offered every day, but people often wonder which ones are best for their needs. The problem is that some procedures take a lot of time to complete, while others cause a great deal of discomfort and downtime. At Horizon Medical Center, we offer the advanced Opus Plasma, a skin resurfacing treatment that addresses a wide variety of concerns. This gentle system even provides noticeable skin resurfacing results after just one session.
Opus Plasma technology combines radiofrequency (RF) energy and microplasma to reduce the appearance of fine lines, rough skin, hyperpigmentation, and similar problems. Learn how our clinic improves your overall facial complexion and gives you a more radiant look in Schaumburg, IL.
Skin resurfacing explained
Everyone deals with skin issues at some point. Wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage all have an impact on our overall facial complexion. Skin resurfacing is an anti-aging treatment that uses plasma technology to create small channels in the skin. Once these channels are created, our bodies produce much-needed collagen to heal the damaged tissue. If you have sensitive or delicate skin, the specialists at Horizon Medical Center can always adjust the intensity of the procedure based on your skin type and aesthetic goals.
Candidates for the Opus Plasma
Opus Plasma is a good choice if you’re facing any of the above skin conditions. It’s also an excellent option for men and women with mild looseness or lax skin. One of the biggest advantages of Opus Plasma is that you can achieve exceptional results without the discomfort associated with other treatments. Some laser procedures require weeks of downtime before people can enjoy their refreshed outcomes. During a consultation at our office in Schaumburg, IL, we can review the pros and cons of skin resurfacing and whether you are a fit candidate.
What does skin resurfacing treatment look like?
As we mentioned, Horizon Medical Center personalizes treatment based on your skin care goals, but all treatments involve gliding a simple handpiece over the areas of concern. We make sure to apply the applicator evenly for great skin resurfacing results. Radiofrequency energy then clears away dead skin cells and encourages new collagen growth. Opus has a built-in cooling system so patients can feel comfortable throughout their procedure. The process only takes 10 – 15 minutes, and patients can return to activities as normal afterward.
Easy recovery and little downtime
Recovery depends on the intensity of your individual treatment. Many studies have shown that Opus Plasma requires far less downtime than other procedures, so you can get back to work and your social life far sooner. Most people will experience some redness and mild swelling that only lasts a couple of days. Our team can offer helpful guidelines so you can take care of your skin at home. We can also let you know if you should return for follow-up sessions for more dramatic skin resurfacing results.
