What is RF Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing with radiofrequency (RF) technology at Health and Wellness of Carmel is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to clear away dead and damaged skin cells layer by layer. This procedure is great for correcting facial dynamic lines and wrinkles and for minimizing flaws, like pigmentation, acne scars, and more. Skin resurfacing using the Opus® is an effective procedure for people desiring softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin.

Is RF Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?

There are many aspects to think about when picking which RF resurfacing regimen is best for your skin. This therapy is designed for a patient who is displeased with their facial condition. Radiofrequency resurfacing treatments can help minimize these minor flaws. In addition, it works effectively for patients who have an uneven texture, scaly patches, or different issues. This procedure might not be recommended for people who have more pigmented skin or acne breakouts.

How is RF Skin Resurfacing Performed?

During your procedure, you will get comfortable in our dedicated treatment chair while the Opus handpiece glides over your skin, directly targeting the treatment spots for adjustment. You will experience the warmth from the applicator, then chilled air from the system's built-in cooling technology. The RF wavelengths work to eradicate dead and damaged skin cells while stimulating new collagen levels. Depending on the needs of your complexion, the treatment will be adjusted for the best results. Following your procedure, you may see redness similar to a sunburn; however, this will most likely go away after 2 – 3 days. Your revitalized look should remain for five years or more and can be redone as necessary. While your new look may last a long time, it's essential to remember that this solution does not end your body's innate age progression.

Can RF Skin Resurfacing Treat Acne Scars?

One of the many types of blemishes that can be solved through the use of the Opus is acne scars. In just a few sessions, our patients notice their skin texture returning to its normal state and alleviating any insecurities regarding their past acne outbreaks. During your consultation, our staff will be able to determine if your particular scars warrant RF skin resurfacing, as well as provide a detailed timetable for your treatment and a cost estimate.

RF Skin Resurfacing FAQs

How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
RF skin resurfacing expenses differ, depending on the treatment you select. At your initial consultation, Dr. Fetters will listen to your concerns and goals before discussing the different types of RF resurfacing available. Then, he will help you choose your treatment and discuss costs.

How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
Dr. Fetters or someone on his team will talk to you about how you can help your skin heal following your skin resurfacing treatment. The most important rule is don't peel or pick your skin. This can lead to lasting damage, including scars. You need to put a halt to all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. Additionally, you need to apply SPF 50 or use a hat if you're outdoors. We can prescribe a cream to help ease your skin.

How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?
Depending on the skin resurfacing options you and Dr. Fetters select for your service, you may need to wait a few weeks or even months between treatments. Deep RF treatments will give you longer-lasting results; however, they do need a longer recovery period. You should talk to Dr. Fetters about how frequently you want to come back for treatments so he can take this into account when recommending a treatment plan during your initial consultation.
