For most of us, the skin around our eyes is one of the first areas to show our age, thanks to the accumulated effects of the sun, the loss of collagen and elasticity in our skin over time, and even night after night of makeup removal.
Your eyelids may even begin to droop, giving you a sleepy, older appearance that’s the opposite of how you feel and look in your mind. What can you do?
You might be tempted to try an eyelid lift to regain your youthful appearance, but you don’t really want to go under general anesthesia, recovery takes some time, and there are always risks with surgery. Plus, it’s expensive.
Thankfully, you can now lift your eyelids without surgery using minimally invasive methods that require no large incisions and involve minimal downtime, low cost, and no hospital stay.

What is Alma opus plasma?
Though Botox and dermal fillers can provide some relief for droopy eyelids, one of the best nonsurgical eyelid lift solutions is Opus Plasma from Alma. This state-of-the-art skin rejuvenation technology not only gives your skin a more youthful appearance, but it can also improve the wrinkles around your eyes while tightening and lifting the skin of your eyelids to pull them back up.
Opus Plasma is the first fractional plasma technology on the market; the system uses a proprietary high-frequency, unipolar radiofrequency (RF) technology to resurface and rejuvenate your skin.
How does Alma opus work?
The Opus Plasma treatment causes very small injuries to your skin using tiny metal pins with RF voltage on the end. As these pins get close to your skin, they react with the atmospheric pressure in the air, producing a plasma-like energy to create fractional wounds in your skin.
As these wounds are created, your body’s natural healing process is kickstarted to produce collagen. When collagen production is stimulated, your skin tightens and becomes more supple with a brighter, more youthful appearance. The tightening of the skin reduces any laxity in that area; when applied to the eyelids, it can lift the eyelids, reducing their droopiness.
Opus Plasma offers lower risk, less side effects, and minimal downtime compared to other eyelid-lifting treatments.
