How to prepare for your appointment

  • Do not wear makeup on the day of treatment.

  • Excess hair may need to be shaved. Men should be cleanly shaven.

  • No sun-tanning or self-tanners 4 weeks prior to treatment which includes spray tans, tanning lotions, tanning beds, sun exposure, etc.

  • Avoid treatments that may irritate the skin for 1-2 weeks prior to treatment (waxing, depilatories, skin products that contain irritants such as Vitamin A, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, etc.)

  • Notify your provider of any changes to your health history or medications since your last appointment.

  • History of herpes or cold sores may require anti-viral prescription treatment.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR APPOINTMENT

This procedure is a very safe and tolerable in-office procedure. We apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area prior to the procedure to make it more comfortable, with most patients experiencing little to no discomfort. The actual Opus treatment takes anywhere from 15 - 30 minutes. During the treatment, you may feel some warmth as the plasma energy penetrates deep into the skin.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT

After the Opus procedure, the treated area may be red and feel like a sunburn for about 1 - 3 days. After 3 -4 days, you may experience mild skin flaking or peeling. It is recommended that patients avoid direct sun exposure for 48 hours after the treatment since their skin will be sensitive to UV light. However, you will be able to immediately get back to your normal routine after a treatment session. Your provider will tell you more about any skincare products to avoid, including the importance of using sunscreen after your Opus treatments.

 

• Over-the-counter pain medication or cool compress is recommended if you experience minor pain/discomfort post-treatment

• Regularly wash the area with a non-irritating skin cleanser and apply a healing ointment (such as Aquafor) until the treated area has fully healed or post-care products given at the time of the visit

• Redness, swelling, and crusting may occur and resolve with time (usually 24-72 hours)

• Avoid sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen to prevent further sun damage

• Do not shave, wax or use depilatory creams in the treatment area for a few days

• Avoid heat - hot tubs, saunas, etc. for 1-2 days

• Avoid skin irritants a few days post-treatment

• Avoid products containing tretinoin, retinal, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, etc.

• Multiple treatments are required

• Makeup can be applied 2 days post-treatment.

• Notify your provider of concerns (blistering, excessive redness/swelling, itching, etc.)

Opus® FAQ

What is Opus?

Opus is an FDA-approved, Fractional Microplasma Radiofrequency Technology (FMRT) that improves the skin by targeting deep lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, skin laxity (looseness), texture changes, and more. Using plasma energy, Opus creates a unique effect that both improves and rejuvenates the skin.

HOW does opus WORK?

Opus works by using high RF energy to convert nitrogen and oxygen in the air into plasma sparks. This plasma energy creates microchannels on the skin surface surrounded by healthy skin to promote a wound-healing response. This response prompts the rapid growth of new skin cells and collagen stimulation. Unlike other treatments which remove the top layer of skin, Opus stimulates natural growth deep in your skin. As these new skin cells develop, the old ones fall away, revealing the new skin for a fresher, more youthful look. Because the top layer of your skin isn't removed, the downtime is minimal and heals very quickly. Opus is also very customizable. It can be calibrated for a "light" effect, which is like a chemical peel, or a stronger setting which is similar to laser treatment.

What Skin conditions can you treat with opus?

  • Fine Lines and wrinkles

  • Skin laxity (looseness)
