Radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing at Integrative Rejuvenation is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of energy to eliminate damaged skin cells one layer at a time. This procedure is performed for reducing facial dynamic lines and wrinkles and for improving blemishes, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Skin resurfacing using the Opus Plasma™ technology is considered an effective facial treatment for patients desiring softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Set up an RF skin resurfacing session at our Gilbert, AZ location as soon as you're able.
There are some different components to think about when considering which radiofrequency resurfacing treatment is best for you. This therapy is ideal for a patient who is disappointed with their complexion, as RF resurfacing treatments focus on minimizing aesthetic flaws, like wrinkles, facial lines, uneven texture, patches of flaky skin, or various other issues. This procedure might not be recommended for men or women with pigmented skin or current acne breakouts. Schedule a consultation today to learn more.
Your procedure begins in our special procedure chair while the Opus handpiece is passed over your face, directly targeting the desired spots for improvement. You will notice heat from the device, then chilled air from the Opus's built-in cooling technology. The RF wavelengths work to get rid of damaged and dead skin cells, as well as encourage new collagen growth. After your session, you will have a sensation similar to a sunburn, which will go away after 2 – 3 days. Your rejuvenated look should remain for five years or more and can be repeated as necessary. While your results should last a long time, this treatment does not end your body's natural aging progression.
How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
Radiofrequency skin resurfacing expenses will fluctuate based on the treatment you get. During your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and goals before reviewing the various types of resurfacing, including discussing costs.
How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
The number one rule is don't pick or peel your skin, which can cause lasting damage, including scarring. You need to put a halt to all hair removal of any kind on the treated skin, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. Additionally, you should use sun protection and wear a hat while you're outdoors. We can suggest an ointment to help soothe and heal your skin.
How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?
Depending on the skin resurfacing options you select, you may need to wait several weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deep treatments will give you results that last a long time but need a lengthy recovery period. Let us know how often you are willing to return for appointments so we can take this into account when suggesting a type of resurfacing in your initial consultation.
