WHAT IS OPUS® PLASMA SKIN RESURFACING?
Plasma skin resurfacing at Horizon Medical Center is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin layer by layer. Performed with Opus Plasma technology from Alma lasers, this technique combines radiofrequency (RF) and microplasma energy to reduce facial lines and wrinkles and improve flaws, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Plasma skin resurfacing can be an ideal solution treatment for men and women desiring more radiant, youthful-looking skin. These plasma treatments can be customized to meet individual concerns and carry less downtime than other aesthetic options. If you are looking to rejuvenate and renew your complexion, set up your skin resurfacing appointment at our med spa in Schaumburg, IL!
HOW DOES RF SKIN RESURFACING WORK?
Women and men who have rough skin texture, scaly patches, hyperpigmentation, or other imperfections may be ideal candidates for this procedure. During your RF skin resurfacing treatment at Horizon Medical Center, we will glide the Opus handpiece over your skin, directly targeting your areas of concern. You will notice heat from the applicator, followed by chilled air from the Opus’s built-in cooling system. The radiofrequency wavelengths work to clear away damaged and dead skin cells while encouraging new collagen production. Treatments only take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete and can be used in various areas of the face and body. Our knowledgeable med spa staff can help you determine if and when any follow-up treatments are needed to maintain your results.
PLASMA SKIN RESURFACING FAQS
How long does plasma skin resurfacing last?
Results from plasma skin resurfacing should be long-lasting if you take care of your skin post-procedure. The best way to prolong your outcomes is to avoid sun exposure, wear sunscreen, and keep your skin hydrated by drinking water. If you take these precautions, your skin will look great for years to come. Touch-up treatments may also be required.
Is plasma skin resurfacing safe?
Yes, plasma skin resurfacing is a safe procedure when performed by a qualified professional at Horizon Medical Center in Schaumburg, IL. The risks are minimal, and complications are rare. Though you may experience some temporary redness and swelling, these side effects resolve on their own soon after treatment. Our goal is to provide the best possible results while ensuring your safety and comfort.
What about plastic surgery?
Plastic surgery can provide more dramatic results than plasma skin resurfacing, but it is also more invasive and carries greater risks. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, we encourage you to come in for a consultation so we can help decide which treatment option is right for your needs and goals. Skin resurfacing may be preferable for all these reasons and more.
