Your skin gradually diminishes in quality as you age. There are a number of reasons why this occurs. As early as your 30’s, your production of collagen, a structural protein that maintains skin firmness and elasticity, declines. UV rays emitted by the sun gradually take a toll on your skin, which affects your tone and texture. The natural forces of gravity tug and pull, making your skin sag. Aging is inevitable and impossible to avoid – your skin shows the experiences of life as the external and internal factors take their toll.
A rejuvenating treatment exists that can help relieve your skin of these cosmetic concerns, essentially turning back the hands of time and giving you a more youthful image. This treatment is known as Opus Plasma skin resurfacing.
Opus Plasma, developed by Alma, a lead developer of aesthetics technology, is an FDA-approved skin rejuvenation treatment. The treatment involves a device that has metal pins which emit radiofrequency energy while gliding across the top of the skin. When this energy is introduced to the skin, it causes a plasma to form, which heats the skin and ultimately creates micro-injuries. These micro-injuries prompt the body’s natural healing response, which boosts the production of collagen and elastin. The micro-ablative treatment allows for controlled damage, meaning it is safe, precise and reduces the possibility for inflammation.
