What is RF Skin Resurfacing?
Radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment designed to use thermal energy to eliminate layers of dead and damaged skin. The procedure is perfect for patients hoping to achieve smoother, clearer, younger-looking skin. The Pixel RF Microplasma™ laser can be customized to provide the best results for all skin tones and textures. Any concerns or questions can be discussed during the initial consultation with Dr. Arthur Schlyer. Call Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL to schedule your appointment, as well as discover the skin benefits associated with this treatment.
Those who are unsatisfied with their skin's current appearance may find RF skin resurfacing to be a helpful solution. The treatment works effectively on rough texture, scaly patches, and other skin irregularities, though it isn't recommended for patients with particularly dark skin tones or active acne.
RF skin resurfacing has been known to correct:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
Our RF Skin Resurfacing Technique
During the procedure, the patient will relax and let their mind at ease in our treatment chair while the Pixel RF Microplasma glides over the skin, directly targeting the afflicted areas. The delicate healing energy from the device works to destroy damaged and dead skin cells while also boosting the natural production of collagen and elastin. RF skin resurfacing can be performed on the face, neck, décolleté, or other areas that could use improved skin texture and tone.
What to Expect
The affected skin may look red, and irritation or swelling may be experienced in the days after the procedure. Additionally, it's important to reduce exposure to UV rays as much as possible. If you must go outside, try to be brief and ensure you use proper sun protection and reapply it frequently. All hair removal methods — including waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams — in the treatment area must be avoided for several days after the treatment.
If in the event of prolonged irritation, Dr. Schlyer can suggest an ointment in order to relieve the aggravated areas. It is natural for the skin to crust, flake, and peel away during the recovery process. Avoid picking at the skin to prevent scarring and protect the treated area from environmental exposure. After a few days, the peeling will stop and the treated skin should feel smoother and look more clear.
