What is RF Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing with radiofrequency (RF) technology at River Park Esthetics is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that uses pulsating beams of light to remove dead and damaged skin cells one layer at a time. This service is great for reducing facial lines and wrinkles and for improving blemishes, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Skin resurfacing using the Opus Plasma™ platform is considered a great treatment for patients who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin.

Can I Have RF Skin Resurfacing?

There are many elements to keep in mind when deciding which RF resurfacing option is a good match for your goals. This treatment is ideal for a man or woman who is unhappy with their complexion. RF resurfacing treatments may help improve aesthetic flaws, including rough texture, scaly patches, and other irregularities. This treatment might not be the best option for those with darker skin or acne breakouts. Schedule a consultation today at our Dublin, OH location to learn if this procedure is a good fit for your needs.

How is RF Skin Resurfacing Performed?

Your procedure begins in a special treatment chair while the Opus device glides over your skin, aiming at the desired spots for adjustment. You will experience the heated sensation from the applicator, then cool air from the Opus’ incorporated cooling device. The radiofrequency wavelengths serve to wipe out dead and damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate increased collagen production.

What Should I Expect Following RF Skin Resurfacing?

Following your treatment, you will likely have redness like a sunburn; however, this will likely go away after 2 – 3 days. Your results should last for a while and may be redone as needed. Even though your results can last for years, it’s important to keep in mind that this solution does not end your body’s innate age progression. Additionally, a skilled member of our team will have aftercare instructions for you to follow.

RF Skin Resurfacing FAQ

Your RF skin resurfacing expenses will differ based on your specific treatment plan. At your consultation, we will learn about your concerns and goals before reviewing the various types of resurfacing available. After this, we can help you choose your treatment and discuss costs.

The most important rule is not to pick or peel your skin, which can lead to lasting damage, like scarring. You should skip all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. In addition, you should use sun protection or wear a hat when outdoors. Our team will recommend certain products to help soothe your skin.

Based on the resurfacing type selected for your treatment, you may need to wait several weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deeper RF treatments will give you results that last a long time but will require a lengthy recovery period. Let us know how often you are willing to come back for appointments so we can take this into account when choosing a type of resurfacing during your consultation.
