Improve the Appearance of Sun-Damaged Skin With RF Skin Resurfacing
Even with a dedicated skin care regimen that includes sunscreen and minimizing direct sun exposure, it can be virtually impossible to avoid UV rays altogether — leaving many people with sun-damaged skin that can be a cosmetic nuisance and a source of frustration and even self-consciousness. There’s no question that professional skin treatments are one of the most effective ways to reverse the effects of sun damage and restore a noticeably clearer, smoother, younger-looking complexion.

Discover the many exciting capabilities of RF skin resurfacing here, including its unique ability to fight the unwanted side effects of sun exposure.
What does sun exposure do to your skin?
Not only can the sun’s harmful UV rays increase your risk of developing serious skin cancers, but it can also cause a variety of damage that leaves you looking and feeling less than confident. First and foremost, the skin should be cared for and protected to preserve its health and reduce the risk of skin cancer and other conditions, but these same protective measures — like wearing sunscreen and protective clothing as well as avoiding UV ray exposure — have the added benefit of keeping the skin smooth, vibrant, and youthful-looking. Some of the unwanted cosmetic side effects of sun exposure when it comes to damaging your skin include:
- Uneven skin texture
- Drooping or sagging
How can RF skin resurfacing reverse sun damage?
One of the primary ways that sun damages the skin is by breaking down collagen supplies, which are critical for keeping the skin firm and supple. During Opus skin resurfacing, radiofrequency (RF) energy is administered to the skin’s surface and penetrates the deeper layers of tissue, triggering the body’s natural production of collagen. Over time, these new, healthy collagen fibers work to repair and restore certain types of damage and give the skin back its firmer, smoother look. Not only that, but RF skin resurfacing with Opus can tackle many of the other side effects of sun exposure, aging, and other factors, including fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, rough skin texture, and more.
How long do RF skin resurfacing results last?
Following a full round of RF skin resurfacing, which may include a series of several treatments, patients can enjoy their results for up to five years in some cases. To maintain your new-and-improved complexion after RF skin resurfacing treatments, be sure to:
- Avoid sun exposure
- Use sunscreen daily
- Practice a dedicated skin care regimen
- Eat a healthy diet
- Drink plenty of water
- Do not smoke
- Consider complementary skin treatments and procedures between rounds of RF resurfacing
