How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?

Radio frequency energy is precisely directed into the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process of the skin. After treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial imperfections of your skin’s tone and texture are reduced.

Is Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?

The radio frequency treatment is a safe and effective solution for patients who do not have a pace-maker, cardiac defibrillator, or any cosmetic facial implants (cheeks or chin).

When Can I Expect to See Results?

The typical skin resurfacing treatment protocol includes 3-5 treatments every 4-6 weeks. The total number of skin resurfacing  treatment sessions depends on your skin’s baseline condition.

Does Skin Resurfacing Hurt?
