What is RF Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing with radiofrequency (RF) technology at Peak Aesthetics is a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to eliminate damaged surface skin layers. At Peak Aesthetics, board-certified family physician Benjamin Pinner, MD performs this procedure for patients who want to smooth facial lines and wrinkles, as well as improve skin irregularities, such as acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. To perform RF skin resurfacing, our office utilizes advanced technology by Alma Accent Prime Pixel RF. This unique system fuses radiofrequency (RF) and microplasma with a specialized microneedling roller device to make tiny pricks in your skin through which RF heat is delivered. After just a few sessions, it's possible to obtain softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. To learn more and schedule a consultation, contact our office in Peak, SC.
""It feels really great to look in the mirror and see a more prominent top lip, as I can't remember ever having one and I'm beyond excited about the difference. I appreciate you taking the time to walk me through the process. You guys did a great job and the end result is what I hoped that it would be-just a natural look. I'm impressed! I wish I had done this sooner. I will be seeing you again in the future. Thank you so much!""- VB / Office Visit / Nov 16, 2020

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
RF skin resurfacing costs vary, depending on the treatment type you get. During your initial consultation, Dr. Pinner will ask about your skin issues and cosmetic concerns before explaining the different types of RF resurfacing available. After this, he can help you decide on your treatment and talk to you about costs.
How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
With RF skin resurfacing using the Alma Pixel RF system, most patients experience a faster recovery than skin resurfacing with a laser. Dr. Pinner or a member of his staff will give you tips on how you can speed skin healing after a skin resurfacing treatment. A good rule of thumb is to not peel or pick flaking skin. This could cause lasting damage, like scars. Our staff can suggest ointments to help soothe the treated areas of skin.
How often should I get skin resurfacing sessions?
Since RF skin resurfacing is a relatively mild treatment, you may only need to wait a few weeks between appointments. You should tell Dr. Pinner about how often you want to return for treatments so he can take this into account when recommending a customized treatment plan during your consultation.
