What is rf Skin Resurfacing?

Radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing with Opus Plasma is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment at Modern Day  MedSpa. This procedure uses radiofrequency energy waves to target slightly deeper layers of skin than surface laser treatments would target. The procedure is used for correcting facial lines and wrinkles and for improving skin irregularities, like acne scars, pigmentation, and more. RF skin resurfacing is an ideal treatment for people who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Reach out to our Franklin Park, IL medical director, Dr. Myriam Yokana, to schedule a consultation.

Our RF Skin Resurfacing Technique

During your procedure, a local anesthetic may be used to numb certain areas of the skin. During the procedure, you can relax in our treatment chair while the Opus Plasma handpiece from Alma Lasers glides over the skin, directly targeting the areas designated for resurfacing. You will feel the heat of the energy waves, which can feel similar to a sunburn, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. Typically, the treated skin will appear red, and there may be some swelling and irritation, but this should subside in a few days unless your treatments need to be more intense. Your skin resurfacing cost will vary, depending on the type of treatment you select. In your initial consultation, Dr. Yokana will examine your skin and listen to your goals before helping you select your resurfacing treatment plan.

RF Skin Resurfacing FAQ

How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
Your RF skin resurfacing prices will vary based on the number of treatments needed to reach your goals. At your initial consultation, Dr. Yokana or a member of her team will understand your skin issues and wants before creating a custom treatment plan. When your plan is complete, we can talk to you about estimated costs.

How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
Dr. Yokana or someone on her team will discuss ways to help your skin heal after a radiofrequency resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is do not peel or pick your skin. Doing this could cause lasting damage, like scarring. You should skip all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which includes shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. Additionally, you need to wear SPF 50 or use a hat if you're outside. Our team will recommend certain products to help soothe and heal your skin.

How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?
Based on the RF skin resurfacing plan you and Dr. Yokana select for your session, you might need to wait several weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deep RF treatments will give you results that last a long time; however, they will require a lengthy recovery period. You should talk to Dr. Yokana about how often you want to come back for treatments so she can consider this when choosing a type of resurfacing in your initial consultation.
