Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing treatments are an effective method of rejuvenating your complexion and correcting flaws in the skin such as:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Stretch marks
  • Pigmentation
  • Coarse, uneven skin texture

Dr. Alperovich’s team uses the Accent Prime aesthetics platform to carry out skin resurfacing treatments, which features Microplasma™ radiofrequency technology. The radiofrequency waves act in two ways: removing the surface layer of your skin in a process called ablation, and heating the skin to stimulate new tissue growth.

Micro-plasma radiofrequency treats the target area of skin while leaving surrounding tissues undamaged. Skin heals more quickly as a result, with improved results and long-lasting effects.

How does skin resurfacing treatment work?

The Accent Prime skin resurfacing technology helps rejuvenate your skin by using the power of your body’s natural healing mechanisms. The radiofrequency waves gently remove the old surface skin and the new skin and tissue underneath heat up.

The body responds to the dual irritation of the skin by instigating the healing response, creating new collagen fibers that plump up the skin and restore elasticity. The new skin that grows is unaffected by the previous scarring, pitting, or pigmentation blemishes and your complexion is clearer and fresher.

Accent Prime also features the IMPACT™ technology that allows Dr. Alperovich to deliver therapeutic products through the skin and into the target tissues, where they act to aid the regeneration process.

How long does it take for skin resurfacing to start working?

As soon as you start treatment, your skin and underlying tissues respond to the stimulus of the radiofrequency energy, beginning the healing process and working to generate new, undamaged tissue.

The process takes several months to complete, but you’ll see a continual improvement in your complexion over that time.

Is skin resurfacing treatment painful?

It might sound as though removing the top layer of your skin would be painful, but using Accent Prime ensures the procedure causes minimal discomfort. You may feel a warming sensation, and some patients say the feeling is similar to a sunburn, but you shouldn’t experience pain during or after your treatment.

Skin resurfacing is a safe way to resolve problems such as blemishes and rejuvenate your complexion without having to undergo invasive surgery. Call Pure Aesthetics Medica today to find out more, or book using the online tool.
