"Dr. Desai has been amazing to work with. I appreciate her honesty and advice and she won’t try to upsell you unnecessarily like other places will! The staff is very friendly as well and I would highly recommend trying this med spa out!"- S.K. / Google / Nov 05, 2021
"Ok! So, I was referred here after explaining to my nail tech the lengthy process and billion steps I have taken to get my skin healthy (dermatologist, internal medicine for hormones, estheticians,, holistic Doctors). I was skeptical as previously stated I’ve tried everything... so here I go again making another appointment for a consultation (at this point I’m ready for an entire face transplant lol).I was immediately impressed with the relationship of Dr.Desai and Dr. Patel. Immediately they make you feel in the most professional way of just meeting up with a longtime friend. Super easy to let your guard down due to the genuine personalities of both Doctors. Very transparent with the procedures success rate, also non conventional treatments and the inclusion on different routes to take to accomplish the outcome desired. I have now visited 3 times. Although there has not been much change in my skin, this does not stop the Doctors confident approach. Switching up the different breaking edge technology they are not afraid to use everything the office has at their finger tips. I truly feel great and this Duo definitely delivers the wow factor! I will keep y’all posted in my journey, I feel confident Dr. Desai and Dr. Patel can figure out this face! lol"- A.P. / Yelp / Sep 30, 2021
"I went in for a little lip enhancement. I did not really know what to expect or what I really wanted just knew I wanted my upper lip bigger. The staff and Doctor went over everything and made me feel so comfortable and recommended what they felt would give me what I wanted. The injections were almost painless and the outcome was everything I wanted! Will definitely be back!"- J.G. / Google / Sep 30, 2021

How It Works
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 are the benefits of Opus?
Many people turn to facelift surgery when they want to improve their skin's texture and quality. However, these procedures can be invasive and require weeks in recovery. Opus provides unmatched precision to control contact with the skin and minimize unwanted side effects. It can effectively target a number of skin issues in different areas like the face and neck, even sensitive areas around the eyes and lips. With limited discomfort and downtime, Opus is an effective skin rejuvenation solution. Opus can address:
- Deep lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Sun spots
- Rough patches
- Stretch marks
- Upper eyelid drooping
- Lines around the mouth
- Necklace lines
What is the Opus procedure like?
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 is the post-procedure like?
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.
How long does an Opus treatment take?
On average, an Opus treatment lasts about 15 minutes. Sometimes a treatment can last up to 30 minutes depending on the treatment area and what aesthetic issues are being addressed.
How long does it take to see results with Opus?
Many patients often see results after as little as one treatment. For many patients, as new collagen forms in the skin, the best results will be seen in about three months.
How many Opus treatments will I need?
The number of Opus treatments you’ll need will depend on the treatment area and your aesthetic objectives. During your consultation, your provider will assess your skin condition and ask you about your goals. Often, 2 -3 treatments will get great results.
Is Opus plasma skin resurfacing safe?
Yes, Opus plasma skin resurfacing is safe and FDA-approved. Because the Opus system has such precise control, it only targets the treatment area and minimizes the risk of skin damage.
