Radiofrequency skin resurfacing and scar revision expenses will differ, depending on the treatment you get. During your initial consultation, we will listen to your skin issues and wants before explaining the various types of resurfacing. Then, we can help you choose your resurfacing method and discuss costs.
The first changes can be seen after 1 session (in about 1.5–2 weeks). But it will be minor. To develop and consolidate it, we recommend repeating the procedure at least 2–3 times (depending on the clinical picture).
Patients note a slight redness that doesn’t interfere with makeup the next day.
