What is RF skin resurfacing?
RF (radiofrequency) skin resurfacing is a noninvasive treatment that uses pulsating beams of light to rejuvenate the skin. At Refining Beauty, James Leffingwell, M.D. uses the advanced Opus® system by Alma for superior RF skin resurfacing. This service is primarily used to treat wrinkles, mild skin sagging, surface scars, overly large pores, rough texture, stretch marks, sun damage, and pigmentation issues. It's an excellent way to remove old and damaged skin to allow new tissue growth and collagen production. The results provide a smoother, younger-looking complexion. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Leffingwell, call our office in Midlothian, TX today.
"I originally started with Cross Timbers for my husband’s tonsils and allergies. Then again for my daughters tongue tie. All of these were done with Dr. Luke Shellenberger (at the Mansfield office.) In talking with the staff I found out they have a 🗣 MEDSPA at the midlothian office! The ball has not been dropped on ANY level with this practice. At the Midlothian office the receptionist Angela is on her A game ALWAYS! Dr. L is a hoot and a fantastic dr! I went in there originally for Botox. I had Becky and Rebecca in there assisting him (both nurses and fun personalities) which was VERY nice and comforting. Most medspas do NOT have nurses, some places they’re not even MA’s which is ridiculous. After Botox I started doing other things to help with my face because I didn’t want fillers, so they gave me some other options. His Medspa “guru” (as I like to call her) is nurse Rebecca. She is so informative through the whole process and aftercare. EXCELLENT bedside manner. So far I’ve done Opus (which is plasma), Clearlift, and Harmony. I haven’t been disappointed with any of these results. Below is a (creepy) picture of me with my very first treatment results. I’m making the face so you can see where the Botox worked SO well on my forehead. We are working on wrinkles, lightening my freckles/age spots, and tightening. I can’t wait to see what the end results are! We have currently started working on my HORRIBLE scars on my arms from getting Brachioplasty. They also run specials every month which I’ve taken full advantage of!! :) The only thing I wish was different would be a separate entrance for MedSpa only but, to my knowledge this part of the practice is still growing so hopefully I’ll see it in the future!"- K.W. / Google / Apr 08, 2022

"Over the years I have developed some abdominal and back fat that I have not been happy with and have not been able to lose with dieting. I am typically anti-plastic surgery. But I learned about laser Lipo from a friend who referred me to Dr. Leffingwell. After speaking with Dr.Jim and his staff I was more intrigued. They answered all my questions and shared with me exactly what to expect. I decided to get this procedure because it was less invasive. The procedure was exactly how they described it and it was very simple. I was out of the office in a couple of hours. The results are amazing and I wish I had done this years ago. But the timing in meeting Dr. Leffingwell and his staff couldn’t have been more perfect. This dude is very happy with the results. No more love handles for me. I can’t wait until the summer to get some sun on these new abs. Thank you Dr.Jim !"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 09, 2022
"In short, Dr. Leffingwell demonstrated why physicians are often held in high regard. His competence and manner were very reassuring under difficult circumstances. As the "on call" doctor for his partnership, he stepped up, and, within about an hour altered my anxiety level from about 8 or 9 to around 2. Without the benefit of an assistant/nurse he performed brilliantly in alleviating my post surgery (deviated septum repair...) excessive bleeding."- J. / Healthgrades / Jan 31, 2022
"I received the My Ellevate treatment and then a month later went in for a Morpheus 8 treatment. I have loved the results of the My Ellevate treatment which addressed some loose skin under my chin and tightened my jawline. The Morpheus 8 is a micro needling treatment that helps refine skin texture and produce natural collagen in the skin. I will be back for a couple more Morpheus 8 treatments in the future. Dr Leffingwell and his staff are highly skilled and very informative and professional."- K.M. / Google / Nov 19, 2021
Who is a candidate for RF skin resurfacing?
You may be a good candidate for RF skin resurfacing if you are noticing early signs of aging, such as skin laxity, fine lines, or age spots. Other concerns, like acne scars, sun damage, and irregular patches of discoloration, can also be improved with this therapy. Dr. Leffingwell typically does not recommend RF skin resurfacing to patients who have active acne or certain skin conditions.
How does RF skin resurfacing work?
RF skin resurfacing is an outpatient treatment that is performed on-site at Refining Beauty. First, your skin will be prepped and then the Opus handpiece will be used to target the designated treatment areas. As the device emits RF wavelengths, you'll feel a heated sensation followed by chilled air from the platform's incorporated cooling system. The RF energy will remove damaged skin cells while encouraging new collagen growth. Sessions generally take about 20 – 45 minutes to complete.
