What is RF Skin Resurfacing?
RF (radiofrequency) skin resurfacing at NoSweat Fort Wayne in Indiana is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of light to remove dead and damaged skin cells one layer at a time. We use this treatment to address fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation issues, and more. Skin resurfacing with Opus Plasma is an ideal treatment for patients who desire radiant, youthful-looking skin. For additional information, please schedule a radiofrequency skin resurfacing consultation with Dr. Philip Rettenmaier.

Can I Have RF Skin Resurfacing?
Patients have multiple things to keep in mind when selecting which RF skin resurfacing treatment works best for their goals. Designed to deeply exfoliate the skin, this treatment can help individuals who feel unhappy with their complexion. Radiofrequency resurfacing treatments will help reduce these cosmetic problems. Also, it works well for people who have an uneven texture, scaly patches, and additional skin concerns. We may not recommend this treatment for those who have pigmented skin or active acne breakouts.
RF Skin Resurfacing Procedure technique
During the procedure, patients can relax on a comfortable treatment chair while we gently move the Opus handpiece over the skin. You will experience the heated sensation from the device, then a blast of cold air from the Opus's cooling technology. The radiofrequency wavelengths deeply exfoliate dead and damaged skin cells and encourage collagen production. Depending on the needs of your skin, we can customize the procedure accordingly. Following your treatment, you will experience a sensation similar to a sunburn, but these effects will subside in a few days. Your rejuvenated skin should last for five years or more and may be repeated as needed. Although your outcomes last a long time, it's crucial to keep in mind that this treatment does not stop the natural progression of aging.
What Are the Benefits of RF Skin Resurfacing?
When performed by a trained professional, RF skin resurfacing tightens your skin and reduces or even eliminates wrinkles. One added benefit of this skin therapy is that RF stimulates collagen growth, which has been shown to fight sun damage. Let's talk about how NoSweat Fort Wayne reverses signs of sun damage to give you the smooth appearance you want.
Fighting sun damage: UV rays cause collagen fibers in your skin to break down. RF skin resurfacing stimulates collagen growth in your skin, which reduces signs of mild-to-moderate sun damage.
Face and body contouring: Whether used alone or with other treatments, RF therapy is used in both face and body contouring due to its collagen production. This tightens and smoothes loose skin.
Wrinkles and fine lines: RF skin resurfacing reduces the appearance of Crow's feet, fine lines between your eyebrows, worry lines on your forehead, and smile lines.
Face slimming: Don't call it a facelift, but using RF therapy on the lower part of your face has been shown to break down fat with noticeable results.
RF SKIN RESURFACING faq
How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
RF skin resurfacing prices depend on the type of treatment you get. At your consultation, Dr. Rettenmaier will ask about your skin care goals before helping you select the best kind of RF resurfacing for your complexion. Then, he can help you decide on your resurfacing technique and talk to you about costs.
How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
Dr. Rettenmaier or a member of his team will explain ways to help your skin heal after a skin resurfacing treatment. The most important rule is not to pick or peel flaking skin. Doing this could cause long-term damage, like scarring. You should also avoid hair removal methods on the treated skin, which include waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. To protect your skin during recovery and afterward, you should use SPF 50 and wear a hat while outside. For additional comfort during your healing phase, we can prescribe specific products to help soothe your skin.
How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?
Depending on the skin resurfacing process you and Dr. Rettenmaier select for your session, you may need to wait a few weeks or even a few months between treatments. Deep RF treatments will give you results that last a long time; however, they will require a more extended recovery period. Please let Dr. Rettenmaier know how often you are willing to return for appointments so he can consider this for your treatment plan.
