Is RF Skin Resurfacing A Good Anti-Aging Procedure?

By: Cory Gaiser, M.D.


Many of us are familiar with the benefits of radiofrequency skin resurfacing for acne scarring and other complaints, but you may be surprised to learn that this popular treatment can also help reverse the signs of aging and restore a more youthful overall look. At New Body Aesthetics in Cincinnati, OH, board-certified physician of internal medicine and aesthetic specialist Dr. Cory A. Gaiser is proud to offer RF skin resurfacing with the cutting-edge Opus® system. Read on to learn more about radiofrequency skin resurfacing with Opus, including what common signs of facial aging can be treated with this exciting technology.

What is RF skin resurfacing?

Radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatment designed to improve a wide variety of concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Acne scarring
  • Rough skin texture
  • Patchy spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dark spots
  • Sun spots
  • Dull skin
  • Hyperpigmentation

With the long list of complaints that can be addressed with Opus skin resurfacing, it is no surprise that more and more patients are turning to this revolutionary treatment each year.

How does RF skin resurfacing work?

During your RF skin resurfacing appointment in Cincinnati, OH, you will relax in one of our comfortable and private treatment rooms. To begin, your skin will be cleansed to remove makeup, oil, and debris. If needed, a topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize discomfort during RF skin resurfacing. The treatment itself involves passing the Opus handpiece over the skin’s surface to administer pulses of radiofrequency energy. This targets and destroys imperfections layer by layer while simultaneously encouraging skin tightening. After RF skin resurfacing, patients can expect some redness, skin irritation, and mild swelling. It is important that patients do not pick or scratch their skin as it is healing, and harsh products– including exfoliants – should be avoided. Additionally, patients should take extra care to protect their skin from the sun after skin resurfacing with Opus.

How long does RF skin resurfacing last?

Patients considering RF skin resurfacing as an anti-aging treatment should first understand that no treatment can completely halt the aging process. However, patients can enjoy a healthier and more youthful complexion with RF skin resurfacing, and many patients report that their lines, wrinkles, and other signs of facial aging are slower to progress after treatment. On average, patients can expect the results of RF skin resurfacing with Opus to last for up to 3 – 5 years. To preserve your smooth, glowing skin for as long as possible after RF skin resurfacing, you should:

  • Practice proper skin care
  • Avoid direct sun exposure
  • Wear sunscreen
  • Stay hydrated
  • Not smoke
  • Undergo routine touch-up treatments
  • Consider complementary skin rejuvenation treatments

During your initial consultation for RF skin resurfacing with Opus in Cincinnati, OH, Dr. Gaiser will carefully evaluate and discuss your concerns, explain how treatment may help your skin, and talk with you about how long you can expect your personal results to last.
