At United Shades of Skin we are proud to be the only clinic in Vancouver, BC exclusively offering Opus Plasma Resurfacing and Skin Tightening platform.
A step above laser
This device is unlike any other on the market (and a step above laser platforms!) as it utilizes plasma energy to resurface the skin.
Plasma is something that we see in the sky, such as the stars, the sun, or lightening. So what it does, is takes nitrogen and oxygen in the air and converts it into plasma energy.
Opus Plasma uses high frequency unipolar radio frequency that gets supercharged between the metal pins on the treatment tip, which causes the energy to react with atmospheric pressure in the air when place near the skin.
This generates a surge of plasma to ablate the skin, which means we are creating a response at the dermal level of the skin to build new collagen and elastin fibres.
Opus Plasma Resurfacing treatments are 100% customizable to the intensity that your skin needs, meaning it can be as gentle or aggressive and you need.
What people don’t realize, is that collagen is a protein that makes up 70% of the skin. So as early as the age of 20, we begin to lose this collagen at a rate of about 1% each year.
Our goal with the Opus Plasma is to do things like reduce stretch marks, pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and most importantly to lift and tighten the skin.
Fractional Plasma actually has the capacity to change how we, the medical aesthetic industry, looks at the world of CO2 lasers.
So when we think about CO2 lasers or ablative lasers, we think about long downtime and prolonged recovery. With the Opus Plasma we actually eliminate that completely, and a lot of the time we have results that have improved redness in as little as two days.
Often, patients are seeing results after just one treatment.
The major benefit of the Opus Plasma is tightening without having to do any cutting.
For areas like the eyes, until the Opus Plasma the only tightening and lifting option was eyelid surgery. With that patients have scars and prolonged recovery. With the Opus Plasma, we can achieve comparable results without the cuttings, scars, or downtime period.
