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.
At Skin Restoration, we work hard to stay on the cutting edge of technology. We work hard to provide our patients with the very best that science and technology have to offer, and that’s why we’re proud to offer aesthetic services with the new Colibri applicator.
The Colibri applicator provides the highest power solution for treating fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital) and mouth (perioral). It also works as a non-surgical eyelift and addresses Xanthelasma, a yellow-colored plaque near the inner eyelid. This tool allows us to target hard-to-reach areas such as the periorbital and the perioral regions. In addition, this applicator provides a solution for saggy, lax, or excess skin, which previously would have required surgery to remove.
The Colibri applicator utilizes unipolar radio frequency technology. This process produces microplasma sparks, which deliver energy through a specially shaped tip to create controlled micro-perforations. The process begins with micro-ablation damage, which causes skin contraction. The results are tighter, smoother skin. This treatment is a highly effective alternative to more invasive surgical procedures without prolonged downtime associated with typical treatments. We can’t wait to show you the difference it will make for you; call our office today for more information on how Colibri can help you meet your aesthetic goals.
