RF (radiofrequency) skin resurfacing at iContour Anti-Aging Center is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to eliminate damaged surface skin cells. The procedure is used for addressing facial wrinkles and lines and for improving skin irregularities, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. RF skin resurfacing is an effective procedure for patients desiring clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the needs of your skin type, your treatment may be customized to provide optimal results. Contact us to schedule a consultation for RF skin resurfacing at our Boston, MA office.
Your RF skin resurfacing treatment may vary, depending on the level of care your skin needs. During the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the Pixel RF and/or Alma Accent Prime handpiece passes over your skin, precisely targeting the designated surfaces for improvement. You will feel the heat from the radiofrequency energy, followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser energy is designed to eliminate damaged and dead skin cells while also stimulating new collagen production. A healing ointment will be applied to the treated skin, and you can return home for your recovery. Your skin will appear red, and there will be some irritation and swelling. These symptoms subside within a couple of days, and the skin peeling process will last for about 3 – 5 days but may take up to 2 – 3 weeks if you had a more intense procedure. We will send you home with some care instructions, and it's important to follow those closely. Your treated skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel away after a few days — it's important to avoid picking at the skin during the recovery process to keep from scarring. Once the peeling is finished, your skin will feel softer while looking rejuvenated, younger, and clearer.
How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
Radiofrequency skin resurfacing costs fluctuate depending on the treatment you choose. During your initial consultation, our team will understand your skin problems and goals before explaining the various types of RF resurfacing available. Then, we can help you choose your resurfacing method and discuss costs.
How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
Recovering from skin resurfacing is a lot faster than laser resurfacing. A member of our team will give you tips on ways to help your skin heal after a radiofrequency resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is to not pick or peel your skin. Doing this can cause lasting damage, including scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which includes waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams, in addition to using sun protection and covering the treated area. We can recommend a cream to help soothe your skin.
How often should I get skin resurfacing treatments?
Because RF skin resurfacing isn't overly invasive, you may only have to wait several weeks between appointments. You should tell a member of our team about how often you are willing to come back for treatments so they can consider this when suggesting a type of resurfacing at your initial consultation.
