Radiofrequency Resurfacing and Scar Reduction

What is radiofrequency resurfacing?

Radiofrequency resurfacing is a procedure that uses heat energy to radiate through sub-dermal tissues and gently heat the skin to enhance collagen and elastin production. Radiofrequency resurfacing reduces the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet and other fine lines and wrinkles
  • Deep discoloration, age spots, and uneven skin tone
  • Scar Reduction
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Droopy or sagging skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin texture

Radiofrequency energy improves damaged skin around your eyes, forehead, and mouth without affecting the surrounding tissue.

What should I expect during radiofrequency resurfacing?

During radiofrequency resurfacing and scar reduction, Dr. Andrews uses the EndyMed Intensif head to deliver RF energy to and gently heat your skin in areas that bother you – resulting in smoother, healthier-looking, more attractive skin after just a few treatments. You’ll experience minimal pain, but may feel a sensation of warmth followed by cooling for enhanced comfort.

If you’d like, Dr. Andrews offers topical anesthetics to numb treated areas and reduce pain.

What are the benefits of radiofrequency resurfacing?

You’ll reap numerous benefits when choosing RF resurfacing and scar reduction, such as:

  • Renewed, younger-looking, more evenly-toned skin
  • The procedure is relatively quick
  • RF resurfacing is minimally-invasive with little or no downtime
  • Treatment is safe and effective for all skin colors and types

You may notice swelling and redness after your session, and total healing may take up to 10 days. Dr. Andrews recommends applying ice to the affected area as needed.

Am I a good candidate for radiofrequency resurfacing?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for radiofrequency resurfacing and scar reduction, Dr. Andrews goes over your medical history. He lets you know if radiofrequency resurfacing with Intensif by EndyMed or another aesthetic treatment best matches your needs, so you can achieve the best results possible.

Dr. Andrews also lets you know how many treatment sessions you’ll require and how far apart to space appointments.
