What is RF Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with radiofrequency (RF) technology at Clovis Laser Center is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of light to eliminate dead and damaged skin layer by layer. This treatment is used for addressing fine lines and wrinkles and minimizing blemishes, like hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and sun damage. Skin resurfacing with the Opus® technology by Alma Lasers is an ideal way to create radiant, youthful-looking skin, and the treatment can be customized to address concerns on the face and neck. Opus uses pulsing RF energy to remove dead, damaged skin cells while encouraging new collagen production. To learn more about the benefits of RF skin resurfacing, schedule a consultation with Dr. Timothy Roth in Clovis, CA.
RF SKIN RESURFACING faq
How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
RF skin resurfacing costs can fluctuate based on your specific treatment plan. During your consultation, Dr. Roth will learn about your skin problems and goals before discussing the various types of RF resurfacing available. Then, he will help you choose your resurfacing method and talk to you about costs.
How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
Dr. Roth or a member of his team will discuss how you can speed skin healing after a radiofrequency resurfacing treatment. The top rule is not to peel or pick your skin. This can lead to lasting damage, like scarring. You should avoid all hair removal of any kind on the treated skin, which includes waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. In addition, you need to apply sunscreen or wear a hat if you're outside. Our team will prescribe certain products to help soothe your skin.
How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?
Depending on the skin resurfacing method you and Dr. Roth choose for your procedure, you may need to wait several weeks or even a few months between treatments. Deep RF treatments will give you results that last a long time; however, they do require more time for recovery. You should talk to Dr. Roth about how frequently you are willing to come back for appointments so he can take this into account when choosing the type of resurfacing in your initial consultation.
