tighten loose skin with OPUS PLASMA Non-surgical & Minimally-invasive Treatment

Opus Plasma® Skin Tightening in San Diego

What is OPUS Plasma?

OPUS Plasma is an FDA approved system that generates controlled plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy (radio waves) for rejuvenating and tightening the skin surface anywhere on the face or body.

There are multiple safe and successful applications.  A sophisticated applicator  is managed by Elena to deliver controlled energy that ablates small foci of dermo-epidermal tissue.  Your body responds by initiating a healing response, synthesizing new collagen and generating new more youthful layers of skin and a tighter complexion.  Energy can be adjusted for optimal results, and treatments can be scheduled every four to eight weeks until you achieve your desired outcome.   There is virtually NO downtime, although treated areas may be minimally swollen and/or red for several days. OPUS Plasma offers visibly effective, safe, and comfortable non-surgical skin rejuvenation with no downtime, impossible UNTIL NOW!

Previously available devices delivered energy through the skin surface (TRANS-dermal) or beneath the skin, but results were unpredictable because the effect of energy is variable between individuals and between sites on the same individual. OPUS Plasma delivers energy into the skin (intra epidermal and intra dermal) with real-time monitoring of tissue temperature at the treatment site for consistent temperature end-points, resulting in predictable, controlled outcomes.

With a OPUS Plasma treatment, you won’t need to take time off from work or daily schedules for recovery.  All procedure options with OPUS Plasma are done in the office and little or no downtime.  You can complete an OPUS Plasma skin treatment during lunch hour and return to work!

Opus Plasma® FAQs

Unlike traditional laser skin resurfacing treatment, which requires anesthesia, the Opus Plasma® procedure is well-tolerated by most patients. Topical anesthesia is typically sufficient for minimizing any associated discomfort. 

The Opus Plasma® treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes, though it may take slightly longer for more complex conditions or larger treatment areas.

Opus Plasma(R) treatments are highly customizable and appropriate for treating a wide range of skin issues. This means not everyone’s treatment will be exactly the same. During your consultation, after Dr. Laverson has a chance to evaluate your treatment area and discuss your skincare goals, he’ll be able to give you a clearer idea of the treatment plan for your specific situation.

After your Opus Plasma(R) treatment, you may experience redness and swelling for a couple of days, but you should be able to resume your regular routine right away. Dr. Laverson will provide you with a specific set of instructions to follow so you get the most out of your skin resurfacing treatment. Opus Plasma(R) results can last up to three years!

Lifting and Tightening Face and Neck Skin

Lift and Tighten Face and Neck Skin at Feel Beautiful San Diego

If you want to reduce excess fat and/or tighten loose skin of your lower face, neck, or beneath your chin, Opus plasma treatment may be for you!  Now, Dr. Laverson can treat these problems with a minimally-invasive (non-surgical) procedure.

OPUS delivers skin tightening heat precisely to targeted areas for improved contour and tightened skin in the office, while you are awake.  Treatment areas are anesthetized and radiofrequency (RF) plasma is delivered by a probe passed over the skin to initiate a healing response that reorganizes and tightens collagen matrices.  Liposuction can be added at the same time if necessary or desired.

Opus plasma treatments are comfortable for most, recovery is brief, and return to normal activities usually a matter of days.  At this time, Opus plasma is not a replacement for a facelift, neck lift, or tummy tuck.  Because of its safety, relatively low cost, quick recovery, and minimal to no scarring, Opus plasma is likely to become an adjunct to surgery and/or preferred for those wishing to avoid surgery.

OPUS PLASMA Before and After

I received the OPUS with lipo on a Friday after work. It took about an hour and a half for the procedure in the office. I had minimal swelling and bruising. I returned to work on Monday and by Thursday you could not even tell I had a procedure!

Body Contouring/Shaping and Lifting

Opus® body contouring

RF (radiofrequency) treatments in-office safely and effectively shrink abdominal, thigh, and/or arm fat and tighten/tone loose skin without surgery

Never before possible, new technology allows safe and effective skin tightening and fat dissolution in the office!  Delivery of specific heat levels to connective tissue beneath your skin causes collagen to reorganize and shrink.  Similar levels of heat cause fat cells to dissolve, and your body absorbs these injured cells.  The result is tighter, toned skin and removal of excess fat in treated areas.  The procedure is performed in the office under local antesthesia with minimal discomfort, and recovery is quicker than after surgical procedures.  Results are seen in several weeks to months, and patients enjoy the immediate improvement. 

Dr. Laverson applies Thermigen technology (“ThermiTight”) to precisely control heat generation in the treatment area.  This produces the most consistent, predictable, and safe results.  Indications for ThermiTight are unwanted localized fat and/or loose skin of arms, abdomen, love handles, thighs, or knees.  Usually, only one or two areas are treated per office session.

Desired heat levels are produced by radiofrequency (RF) energy.  The sterile RF probe melts fat for body contouring and volume reduction anywhere on the body.  Fat cells are injured, and through a process called “apoptosis,” your body naturally eliminates targeted fat tissue.  When specific levels of RF energy is applied just beneath your skin, collagen matrices are disrupted, and begin a process of re-organization during which they contract and tighten.  ThermiTight can be used alone or in combination with liposuction in the office.  Dr. Laverson prefers to add liposuction if there is enough excess fat that instant removal is desired.

For Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

This is a new type of RF (radiofrequency) facial with dramatic results.

Just show Dr. Laverson the area of loose or sagging skin on the face or body, and we’ll schedule your tightening procedure.  After evaluating the loose skin involved, radiofrequency (RF) energy is delivered by a thermistor controlled handpiece. ThermiSmooth delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. ThermiSmooth treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage. Normal body temperature is about 37°C, and your loose skin will be warmed to about 45° C.  Warmth applied to deep dermal connective tissue shrinks and tightens in the RF therapy session.  Lines and creases that have developed over the course of years smooth in response.  To avoid excessive heating, skin surface temperature is monitored by an infrared heat-sensing camera continuously, and cool compresses are applied as needed.

Thermi-RF (ThermiSmooth) non-invasive treatment may be used for clearly visible results on any adult.  Although outcomes from Thermi-RF are not equivalent to surgery, it is much easier on you, and depending on your situation, the benefit you get from Thermi-RF may be enough.  Patients with mild amounts of loose or sagging skin are best suited for this office procedure.  ThermiSmooth works well on the forehead, eyelids, under the eyes, around the mouth, and on the neck.

For Long-Lasting Relaxation of Frown Lines

Frown Line Reduction for Years With ThermiRase

Extend the miracle of Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® treatment for years without toxin!  The result is achieved by precise radiofrequency (RF) inactivation of motor nerves to the “squint” muscles between your eyebrows.  This delicate office procedure takes about 90 minutes.  Dr. Laverson uses a locator on your skin to map the anatomy of your squint.  After marking the area, an RF-thermistor (thermometer by ThermiRase) probe is advanced along the course of specific motor nerves, safely inactivating them for long-lasting relaxation.

Patients seeking non-toxic wrinkle reduction see immediate results that are long-lasting. Radio waves produce heat which is absorbed by targeted nerves and neutralizes them to relieve muscle spasm and tension, creating a relaxed, natural look.  ThermiRF offers the advantage of long-lasting  Botox® , Dysport®, and Xeomin® effect without any toxin.  The expected duration of effect is two years, but the muscular function returns slowly as motor nerves re-grow.
