What is RF Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing with radiofrequency (RF) technology at The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of light to exfoliate damaged skin cells one layer at a time. This treatment is great for addressing facial wrinkles and lines and for diminishing irregularities, like acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Skin resurfacing with Opus Plasma™ technology is considered an ideal facial treatment for patients desiring radiant, younger-looking skin. Arrange an RF skin resurfacing consultation in Westlake, OH when you can.

What are the benefits?

At The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care, we are aware that that as you get older your skin can turn dehydrated, flat, and lifeless. Through RF skin resurfacing treatments, we are able to offer our Westlake, OH patients a chance for rejuvenated skin with a procedure that provides many wonderful upsides:

  • Minimized appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Treatment of large pores
  • Improvement of inconsistent skin texture
  • Lowered visibility of scars and sun damage
  • Increased self-confidence around your facial appearance

What To Expect After RF Skin Resurfacing

  • Sensations of heat or warmth: You may feel a sensation of heat or warmth in the treated area for a few hours after the procedure. This is a result of the radiofrequency energy and is generally temporary.
  • Tightening and firmness: In the days following the treatment, you may experience a sensation of skin tightening and firmness as collagen production is stimulated. This effect can continue to improve over time as the new collagen develops.
  • Gradual results: The full results of RF skin resurfacing may take time to become apparent. Collagen remodeling and production occur gradually, so improvements in skin texture, tone, and tightness can continue for several weeks or months after the treatment.
  • Sun protection: It is crucial to protect your skin from the sun following RF resurfacing. The treated area may be more sensitive to sun exposure, and UV radiation can interfere with the healing process and potentially cause pigmentation changes. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF and limit sun exposure, or use protective clothing.

Can I Have RF Skin Resurfacing?

There are different factors to keep in mind when choosing which RF resurfacing regimen is optimal for your desires. This therapy is designed for people disappointed with the condition of their complexion, including the neck. Even more, RF resurfacing treatments work great for men and women who have a rough skin texture, patches of flaky skin, and various other irregularities. This treatment might not be ideal for men or women who have darker skin or acne breakouts.

RF Skin Resurfacing Procedure technique

Your RF skin resurfacing treatment begins in our special treatment chair while the Opus device is passed over your face, honing in on the chosen spots for improvement. You will feel the warmth from the applicator, then cool air from Opus's built-in cooling system. The radiofrequency wavelengths aim to eradicate damaged and dead skin cells while stimulating new collagen growth. After your appointment, you may experience a sensation similar to a sunburn, which will most likely go away after 2 – 3 days. Your revitalized look should last long term and can be repeated as necessary. It is necessary to remember that this procedure does not stop your body's natural aging process.

RF Skin Resurfacing FAQ

How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
Your RF skin resurfacing prices differ, depending on the treatment you choose. During your consultation, we will learn about your concerns and goals before discussing the different types of RF resurfacing available. Then, we will help you choose your resurfacing treatment and discuss costs.

How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
The top rule is to not pick or peel your skin, which creates long-term damage, like scarring. You need to put a halt to all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which includes waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. In addition, you should wear sun protection or wear a hat if you're exposed to the sun's rays. We can prescribe a cream to help soothe your skin.

How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?
Based on the RF skin resurfacing option selected, you may need to wait a few weeks or even a few months between treatments. Deeper treatments will give you results that last a long time but do require a longer recovery period. Let us know how often you are willing to come back for treatments so we can consider this when suggesting a type of resurfacing in your initial consultation.

Can Opus Plasma skin resurfacing be combined with other treatments?
Yes, Opus skin resurfacing can be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers or BOTOX to achieve a more comprehensive level of facial rejuvenation. Our team can determine the best combination based on your specific needs.

How long does an Opus Plasma skin resurfacing session take?
The duration of a skin resurfacing session may vary depending on the treatment area and individual needs. Typically, a session takes between 30 minutes to an hour.

Are there any potential side effects or risks associated with Opus Plasma skin resurfacing?
Opus Plasma skin resurfacing is a safe procedure when performed by a trained professional. However, some potential side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, and mild skin irritation. Serious complications are rare but can include infection or scarring if post-treatment instructions are not followed.
