Laser & RF Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to remove damaged outer layers of skin. This process encourages the growth of new, smoother skin cells, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
Improves acne scars and sun damage
Even skin tone and texture
Tightens loose skin

Can be expensive
Requires downtime for healing (varies depending on treatment depth)
Potential side effects include redness, swelling, and temporary hyperpigmentation (darkening)
Not suitable for all skin types

Chemical peels: Apply a chemical solution to remove outer layers of skin (less downtime than laser resurfacing)
Microneedling: Creates tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production (less dramatic results than laser)
Topical creams and retinoids: Can improve skin texture and tone to a lesser degree

Recovery Time:
Varies depending on the depth of treatment.
Superficial treatments: 3-7 days of redness and peeling
Deeper treatments: 2-3 weeks of downtime with potential crusting and swelling

Laser skin resurfacing is a medical procedure and should be performed by a qualified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. A consultation is necessary to discuss your specific needs and determine if laser resurfacing is right for you.

Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Resurfacing

RF skin resurfacing uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This heat stimulates collagen production, leading to tighter, firmer skin.

Less invasive than laser resurfacing
Minimal downtime
Improves skin texture and elasticity
Can be used on most skin types

Results are often subtle and may take multiple treatments
Not as effective for deep wrinkles or scars as laser resurfacing
May cause temporary redness or swelling

Laser skin resurfacing (more dramatic results but longer recovery time)
Fillers: Can be used to plump wrinkles and lines (temporary results)
Botox: Relaxes muscles that cause wrinkles (temporary results)

Recovery Time:
Minimal downtime, with possible temporary redness or swelling that subsides within a few hours.

RF skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure and results may vary. A consultation with a qualified professional is recommended to determine if this treatment is suitable for your goals.
