We Now Offer Sublative Skin Resurfacing!

By utilizing RF (radiofrequency) sublation (fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology), heat energy is effectively placed into the dermis where it can produce significant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption.

Our ergonomic applicator delivers bipolar radiofrequency energy via a matrix of 64 electrodes in the disposable applicator tip.

The RF energy generates deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. This allows for fibroblast stimulation and extracellular matrix dermal remodeling. The result is a wrinkle treatment, correcting various textural deformities and skin resurfacing and giving you a refreshed glow.

Less affected tissue around the matrix points may be stimulated by the heat, helping to accelerate the healing process—and leading to the appearance of tighter, rejuvenated skin.

The result is a wrinkle treatment that corrects textural deformities and provides a refreshed glow. For optimal results, we recommend the ELOS package, which includes the Triniti treatment with microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Am I A Candidate For RF Skin Resurfacing?

Since RF skin resurfacing is safe and effective for most patients, almost anyone can be considered a great candidate for this skin-renewing treatment. Typical candidates want to reduce the signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin or address skin imperfections, rough texture, uneven tone, and more. During your consultation at Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics, a member of our experienced team will examine your skin and listen to your concerns to ensure that RF skin resurfacing is right for your skin needs and aesthetic goals.

How Does RF Skin Resurfacing Work?

RF skin resurfacing utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are essential proteins that contribute to the skin's firmness and elasticity. As the skin heats up, the existing collagen contracts and the body responds by producing new collagen. This process results in skin tightening and improved texture. RF skin resurfacing is effective in addressing wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. RF skin resurfacing is safe for various skin types and tones, making it a versatile option for individuals seeking skin rejuvenation without significant downtime.

What can I expect after treatment?

After your RF resurfacing session at Concordia Star Medical Associates, a healing ointment will be applied to the treated skin and you can go home for your recovery. The skin will appear red, and there may be some irritation and swelling. These symptoms subside in a few days, and the skin peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day period. Every patient needs to reduce their UV exposure following their laser skin resurfacing appointment and use sun protection frequently. The treated skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is important to avoid picking at the skin during the healing process to keep from scarring and to protect your skin from environmental exposure. After the peeling is completed, your skin will feel softer while appearing rejuvenated, younger, and clearer.

RF Skin Resurfacing FAQs

RF skin resurfacing is safe when performed by an experienced and certified professional. Our team members at Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics are highly trained in the latest cosmetic procedures and can assure your safety throughout the process. We also adhere to the highest standards of safety and sterilization.

Do results from RF skin resurfacing look natural?

Because RF skin resurfacing encourages collagen production, the results achieved from this procedure look natural and refreshed. Collagen is an essential component of healthy, youthful-looking skin and helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. We can tailor your treatment plan to help you attain the best results.

How long do RF skin resurfacing results last?

The length of time results last varies depending on individual factors like age and lifestyle habits in Puyallup, WA. We recommend scheduling follow-up treatments to ensure that you maintain your desired outcomes. It is also important to practice a good skin care regimen and protect your complexion from further sun damage.

Is RF skin resurfacing painful?

RF skin resurfacing is typically not painful, although some patients may experience mild discomfort or a warm sensation during the treatment. Most patients find the procedure to be comfortable and report little to no downtime afterward, although some redness and swelling may occur immediately following treatment.

How many RF skin resurfacing treatments are needed for optimal results?

The number of treatments required for optimal results will depend on the individual patient's needs and goals. Some patients may see noticeable improvements after just one treatment, while others may require a series of treatments to achieve their desired results. On average, most patients require three to five treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve the best results. After the initial series of treatments, patients may benefit from periodic maintenance treatments to help maintain their results over time.

How can I prepare for RF skin resurfacing treatments?

To prepare for RF skin resurfacing treatments, patients should avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before treatment to minimize the risk of skin damage. They should also discontinue using skincare products that contain retinol or glycolic acid a few days before treatment to prevent skin sensitivity. Drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to treatment can help keep the skin hydrated and promote optimal results. Patients should inform Dr. Domondon of any medical conditions or medications they are taking.
