What is Opus?
Opus is an advanced skin resurfacing solution that uses plasma energy instead of traditional laser energy to trigger skin rejuvenation. Traditional laser skin resurfacing has the tendency to damage the surrounding areas of skin, creating unwanted side effects and longer recovery times. Opus, on the other hand, uses small metal rods to conduct electrical plasma energy. This is a much more precise technology, which reduces the inflammation and skin damage traditionally associated with laser skin resurfacing. Therefore, Opus can deliver all of the benefits of an ablative laser treatment, but with significantly less downtime.

What is the Opus Treatment Like?
In most cases, Opus treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This numbs the skin to minimize any discomfort from the treatment process. Then, the Opus handpiece device is maneuvered around the skin’s surface, delivering plasma energy to the skin and triggering collagen production. It also removes damaged or discolored skin to allow fresh, healthy skin to grow in its place. In most cases, an Opus treatment is completed in less than 30 minutes, although the exact duration of treatment will vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
Is There Any Downtime After Opus Treatments?
Thanks to the gentler skin resurfacing technology used by Opus, there is no downtime required after treatment. You’ll be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following your appointment. However, you may experience minor redness or swelling in the skin for a few days. During this time, patients are advised to avoid excessive sun exposure so that the skin heals properly.
What Results Can I Expect from Opus?
You’ll begin noticing results from your Opus treatment after the first treatment session, but it’s important to remember that your results will develop gradually over time as collagen is created and implemented into the skin. We typically recommend a series of 3 treatments for optimal results, each performed about one month apart. With this treatment schedule, patients can expect to see their full results within 4-6 months of their final treatment session.
