Opus Plasma

An innovative, first-of-its-kind radiofrequency skin resurfacing technology improves the skin’s tone and texture with treatments that take 15 to 25 minutes and require minimal downtime.

Opus Plasma represents the next generation of fractional skin resurfacing treatments for women and men of most skin types who want to minimize wrinkles and reverse damage caused by the sun and the natural aging process. The procedure’s versatility enables us to adjust treatment intensity from light to aggressive, depending on the patient’s skin condition and goals.

The innovative platform combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with plasma created when the RF energy emitted from the tips of metal pins react to atmospheric pressure.

Like other laser skin resurfacing treatments, Opus Plasma removes only a fraction of the skin in the targeted area. Fractional skin resurfacing creates thousands of tiny micro-injuries to the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. The body’s natural healing response repairs these controlled wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, the building blocks of smooth, youthful-looking skin.

Unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing technologies, however, Opus Plasma precisely controls the time that radiofrequency energy makes contact with the skin. This minimizes unwanted inflammation that typically leads to longer recovery times.

Who Can Benefit From Opus Plasma Treatments?

Because we can adjust the treatment’s intensity, virtually anyone with concerns about their skin’s appearance is a good candidate for an Opus Plasma procedure. It produces results similar to an aggressive CO2 laser or a gentle laser peel, depending on the setting used. The difference with Opus Plasma is that the treatment and recovery time is minimal compared to other laser treatments.

The benefits of an Opus Plasma treatment include:

  • Reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose and saggy skin
  • Overall skin rejuvenation
  • Minimized acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks
  • Popular treatment areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.

What Happens During an Opus Plasma Treatment?

We begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the target area to minimize discomfort during the session. Once the skin is numb, the specialist glides the Opus Plasma handpiece across the skin. We can treat the entire face in 15 minutes. Once the procedure is finished, we apply a cooling and protective skincare. Patients usually notice some slight redness and swelling after the treatment, but it resolves on its own within 24 to 48 hours in most cases. More aggressive treatment settings can extend the downtime.

Even though most patients see results after a single treatment, we recommend 3 treatment sessions for optimal results.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

The UltraPulse® laser boasts the Gold Standard UltraPulse® technology, enabling the deepest and safest impact, as well as a full range of advanced capabilities for fractional and full resurfacing, at an unparalleled range of depths. UltraPulse® delivers high peak power in a short pulse duration for deep penetration with ideal ablation and coagulation ratio.

Dr. Sitole will often combine his full face laser resurfacing with cosmetic or reconstructive facial surgery to deliver the best possible outcome for his patients.

Downtime can very per patient and per treatment, but most patients can look forward to feeling and looking more like themselves after the first week.

Microneedling & PRF

Our microneedling device, SkinPen By Bellus Medical,  is the first microneedling device in the world cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your skins’ appearance and step out with confidence.

Microneeding and PRF, also known as a ‘vampire facial’, is a type of treatment that involves using a clients own PRF, or platelet rich fibrin matrix. Platelet rich fibrin is taken from their own blood. During microneedling, the PRF is used as a glide for the microneedling device, penetrating the PRF into the skin layer and is massaged into the skin. PRF contains high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin, will stimulate cell turnover. The benefits of a vampire facial are reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, or other skin abnormalities.

Microneedling & PRF Procedure

Each procedure will start with the client meeting with our Esthetician and discussing desired results, expectations, and areas of concern. These brief discussions before each encounter are designed to ensure we are creating a customized experience and providing our clients with the best possible result. This brief consultation typically takes place while the numbing cream is activating on the skins’ surface. This gentle topical numbing cream allows our clients to be at the utmost comfort level during their treatment.

Throughout the treatment, PRF is spread over the face, as opposed to another procedural glide. Once the treatment is complete, we lather the skin with a post procedure approved product such as Alastin SkinCare’s Skin Nectar, iS Clinical’s Recovery Shield, and / or the remaining PRF solution. For clients who purchase any of our Microneedling packages, you will be sent home with a post procedure kit. Because most clients opt to treat the face, neck, and décolleté, he or she can expect to be in our office for an average of 60 minutes.

Facial Fillers

Also known as a “liquid facelift,” facial fillers can temporarily provide the benefits of a surgical procedure without the down-time or recovery. Dr. Sumit Sitole offers Radiesse and Juvederm as temporary facial rejuvenation alternatives that can soften facial creases and add volume. Radiesse and Juvederm offer different benefits and can be used to treat different areas of the face.

Juvederm vs. Radiesse

Juvederm is hyaluronic acid filler that is used primarily to hydrate and augment facial tissue. Juvederm is frequently used to enhance the nasal folds, lips, brows or hollowing under the eyes. Radiesse offers a firmness and support that can be beneficial for issues that require more structural support. Radiesse is often used for enhancing the cheeks.

Facial Fillers Procedure

Similar to Botox Injections, a thorough understanding of the underlying structures of the affected areas will ensure the very best results. After applying a numbing cream to the treatment area to enhance patient comfort, injections are strategically made to the designated areas to add volume, reduce wrinkles, and minimize deep folds.

Facial Fillers Results

Patients can typically see results immediately following the injections, but results will improve as Facial Fillers begin to settle. The results from both Radiesse and Juvederm are temporary and repeat injections will be necessary to maintain a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.

Lip Enhancements

A lip enhancement is a non-surgical technique performed to alter the appearance of lips, creating a fuller, more luscious look, while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles around the periorbital region. Lip fillers used, similar to Volbella, are hyaluronic acid based, which allows for a temporary natural looking result. This technique is often
accompanied by our professional lip treatment, which targets dryness and fine lines. This moisture rich treatment will leave lips feeling plump, hydrated, and happy.

Lip Enhancement Results

Patients can typically see results immediately following the injections, but results will improve as the filler begins to settle. The results from the filler are temporary and repeat injections will be necessary to maintain a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Injections

PRF, different than the traditional PRP, is the process of using your own cells instead of a synthetic alternative for a more youthful, fresh appearance. PRF injections stimulate our long-term natural production of collagen and elastin growth, while improving skins’ tone and texture.

PRF Injection Procedure

PRF injections can be accomplished in a few short steps. First, clients are brought back to our minor procedure room and seated in our procedure bed. One of our staff members will prep the client for a quick blood draw. The vials of the collected blood are then spun down in our centrifuge to reveal the cell and nutrient-rich fibrin. Compared to PRP, PRF is spun at a slower speed allowing more platelets, leukocytes (WBC), and mesenchymal stem cells per mcL. The fibrin is injected into hollow areas of the face, including the under eye area and cheeks. Over the course of 2-4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart, patients will begin to notice the long-lasting results.

This aesthetic procedure can be done alone or can be combined with other injectables including filler. If clients opt to mix a filler and PRF, he or she can expect to see short-term volume in the areas they’re adding filler, improved skin texture and tone in the injected areas, and a long-term increase in volume as the fibrin from the PRF injections work to build more collagen and elastin . This technique is typically repeated annually (or as needed) , but for some areas, may require more treatments to achieve the desired result.

Botox

Botox is a non-surgical treatment that is designed to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and is the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Unlike traditional facial fillers, Botox isn’t designed to add volume. Patients seeking Botox injections often suffer from traditional signs of aging, including crow’s feet, fine lines that develop over time, and frown lines. Botox actually works by weakening underlying facial muscles. By directly targeting wrinkle causing muscles, unwanted lines and wrinkles can be greatly diminished over a period of time.

Botox is a purified substance that weakens the muscle so that it no longer contracts by blocking nerve signals to the wrinkle-causing muscles. By keeping these wrinkle-causing muscles from contracting, fine lines and wrinkles are much less visible. It is important to note that there are 43 facial muscles that can contribute to wrinkles and fine lines throughout the face. For this reason, it is essential that a trained professional perform Botox injections. Dr. Sumit Sitole has a thorough understanding of the wrinkle-causing muscles around the eyes and mid-face that allows him to directly target wrinkle-causing muscles.

Botox Results

As a minimally invasive procedure, Botox injections can be performed without patients having to endure down-time or recovery following injections. As the muscles in the face begin to relax, the full results of Botox Injections will begin to become more apparent, and facial lines and wrinkles will reduce. The effects of Botox are temporary, and after 3 to 5 months the treated muscles will resume their function, and wrinkles and fine lines will return. To ensure long-lasting results, repeated treatments are necessary.

Kybella

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, also known as the double chin. Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid and is specifically designed to target fat cells, ultimately improving your profile. Men and women alike can experience submental fullness from weight gain, genetics, or aging. To achieve desired results, many patients undergo a series of 2-6 treatments over the course of several months.

Kybella Procedure

Similar to other aesthetic treatments, a thorough understanding of the underlying structures of the affected areas will ensure the very best results. Dr. Sitole will start by marking and measuring the exact area he will inject Kybella. From here, a topical numbing cream and/or ice packs will be placed on the skin to enhance comfort. Then, Dr. Sitole will create a grid essentially creating a map of ensuring precise injection. Once the injections have taken place, we clean the grid previously created off the skin. Over the course of 6-8 weeks, Kybella will be slowly breaking down the
fat cells in the target area. The next treatment will take place in the same area after only about 7 weeks.

Kybella Results

Kybella is a non-invasive procedure with long-lasting, quick results. Because each patient is unique, results may very, but most will begin to see a notable difference in the first 4-6 weeks. After all treatments are complete, patients will notice a thinner, more contoured facial profile.
