Nobody wants to look old or tired. When someone starts to see the telltale signs of aging on their face, they are likely going to look for ways to try to reverse these signs from appearing. The same can be said for other conditions that start to appear as we get older, such as brown spots or acne scars.
A lot of people want to do something about these blemishes, but they don’t want to undergo invasive surgery. Fortunately, there are non-invasive treatments out there that are able to safely and effectively eliminate these imperfections on our skin.
What is Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing?
Radiofrequency skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure used to treat minor skin problems caused by aging or prolonged exposure to the sun. It is also called sublative rejuvenation. It is often used as an anti-aging treatment.
How Does It Work?
During a session, radiofrequency energy is aimed at the desired area, and it penetrates the skin. The energy stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that gives skin its structure and helps to keep it firm and smooth. It also helps to replace dead skin cells.
The energy also targets the molecular bonds attaching the outermost layers to the rest of the skin. The dissolution of the bonds causes the outermost layers to go away, revealing the pristine new skin underneath.
What Does Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing Involve?
Radiofrequency skin resurfacing is performed as an outpatient procedure. The energy is directed at the treatment site, and it stimulates the growth of new skin. It does this without causing any damage to the skin. The procedure typically takes just minutes to perform. Some patients may need more than one treatment to get the desired results.
Who is a Good Candidate for Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing?
The best candidates for radiofrequency skin resurfacing are people in good overall health with realistic expectations. The treatment works well on people of all skin colors. Someone is a good candidate if they have rough skin; age spots or sunspots; wrinkles; enlarged pores; acne and acne-related scars; and much more.
