How does it work?
- The treatment works with the help of radio frequency waves that are delivered to the affected areas of the skin with a specialized device.
- The radio waves work at a deeper level in the affected area by stimulating water molecules present in the skin.
- As the water molecules begin to vibrate, heat energy is produced.
- This heat energy breaks down the damaged tissues and triggers healing process.
- The level of collagen and elastin too is raised in the skin which makes it firm and supple over a period of time.
- It is a simple procedure performed both with and without topical anesthesia.
- The entire process takes 25 to 30 minutes at most. However, treatment time may vary from person to person depending upon the extent of scarring and skin damage.
Post-op care and the recovery time:
- Cold compresses may help alleviate symptoms like redness or itchy skin
- Expect photosensitivity to develop after the treatment. This can last for a couple of weeks.
- Avoid the sun exposure during this period. If necessary to go out, generously apply broad spectrum sunscreen.
- Crusting is common; just avoid picking or scratching the crust or scab.
- Generously moisturize treated areas to prevent itchiness
- Do not touch the treated areas unnecessarily
