As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity due to less collagen and elastin production. In addition, we are subjecting our skin daily to the environment – often times without proper protection. Typically the skin starts to show its age beginning in your late 20s and early 30s. Fortunately, you can take steps to reverse the signs of aging skin. With Opus Resurfacing, we can rejuvenate the skin and reveal a more youthful, glowing you.
Opus uses Fractional Plasma® technology to address skin texture and quality issues related to aging and sun damage. Like other energy based treatments, Opus creates tiny channels in the skin which stimulate your body to produce collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin tone and texture improve over the next few weeks.
While other laser treatments can provide similar results, Opus operates a bit differently. It applies high-frequency unipolar radiofrequency close to the skin, which generates plasma-like energy. This effectively resurfaces the skin with significantly less downtime than CO2 or fractional laser treatments.
One of the major advantages of this revolutionary technology is that we can achieve the results of more aggressive, ablative treatments without the long healing time. Patients typically experience mild swelling and redness which resolves in 48 hours. In short, 20-30 minute sessions, you’ll begin to see visible results after just one treatment.
Treatments are customized to suit your unique skin type and goals. In fact, Opus is effective on all skin types unlike other laser treatments which work best on fair skin. We usually recommend 3-4 sessions several weeks apart depending on the severity of skin concerns to see maximum benefits.
