Laser Resurfacing Q&A

What is RF skin resurfacing?

Radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing at Hilla Steinberg, MD PLLC, is a noninvasive aesthetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of light to clear away damaged skin cells layer by layer. This procedure is great for addressing facial wrinkles and lines and for diminishing blemishes, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and more. 

Skin resurfacing utilizing the Opus® is an ideal procedure for people desiring softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Arrange a skin resurfacing appointment in New York, New York, today.

Can I have RF skin resurfacing?

There are multiple factors to think about when picking which RF resurfacing treatment is optimal for your skin. This therapy is optimal for a person who is unhappy with their skin's look. RF resurfacing procedures may help minimize aesthetic flaws. 

Even more, radiofrequency skin resurfacing works great for men and women who have rough spots, patches of flaky skin, or various other issues. This treatment may not be ideal for men or women who have pigmented skin or current acne breakouts.

How is RF skin resurfacing performed? 

Treatment takes place in our dedicated procedure chair. As the Opus® device glides over your skin, honing in on the chosen spots for enhancement, you will notice the heated sensation from the handpiece, followed by chilled air from the system's incorporated cooling device. The RF wavelengths serve to wipe out dead and damaged skin cells, while fractional plasma technology stimulates new collagen growth. 

Depending on the needs of the complexion, the treatment may be customized for the best results. After your procedure, you will have a sensation similar to a sunburn, which will likely fade after a few days. Your rejuvenated look will likely last for five years or more and may be redone as needed. It is essential to keep in mind that this solution does not put a stop to natural age progression.

How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?

Radiofrequency skin resurfacing prices will differ based on your treatment. At your consultation, tell us about your goals, and we will discuss the various types of RF resurfacing available. After this, we will help you choose your resurfacing method and discuss costs.

How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?

The most important rule is to not peel or pick flaking skin, which can create lasting damage, such as scarring. You should forgo all hair removal of any kind on the treated skin, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. In addition, you should apply a lotion with SPF 50 and use a hat while you're exposed to UV rays. Our team will prescribe an ointment to help soothe your skin.

How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?

Based on the RF skin resurfacing type you choose for your treatment, you may need to wait a few weeks or even a few months between treatments. Deep treatments will give you longer-lasting results but do need more time for recovery. Let us know how often you are willing to return for treatments so we can take this into account when choosing a treatment plan during your consultation.

What is RF skin tightening?

A healthy reserve of natural nutrients helps make our complexion soft and resilient. As we age, this foundational stock of proteins can run low, making these tissues lose firmness, resulting in signs of aging and an older appearance. When you would like to elevate the aesthetic appeal of your skin without cosmetic surgery, consider radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening at Hilla Steinberg, M.D. 

By utilizing the advanced Opus® platform, noninvasive skin tightening helps to increase the development of collagen and elastin, so it's possible to develop more taut, smoother skin. Our team in New York, New York, is happy to provide RF skin tightening for individuals who would like to renew and smooth their skin with lasting nonsurgical procedures.

How much does RF skin tightening cost?

The cost of radiofrequency skin tightening will be based entirely on the number of procedures required to reach your aims. At your first consultation, we will want to discuss your aesthetic wants and craft a customized treatment plan that consists of a cost quote.

How many treatments will I need to achieve the look I want?

Your ideal number of treatments will depend on the initial looseness of your skin, along with your aesthetic concerns. At your initial consultation, we will inquire about your goals and concerns in order to decide how many treatments would be recommended for you.

Can I have RF skin tightening with other treatments?

You can. RF skin tightening can be performed as the only treatment or paired with other procedures. Many patients prefer to get RF skin tightening at the same time as additional effective treatments.

Does RF skin tightening hurt?

At Hilla Steinberg, M.D., we do all we can to be sure you are comfortable over the duration of your treatment. While many men and women find that this radiofrequency treatment doesn’t hurt, we offer topical anesthesia to help you feel more comfortable and provide the best possible experience.
