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, Arlington, or Mansfield, TX today.
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.
