There's no denying that as we age, our skin deteriorates. Sun damage and environmental pollutants begin to take their toll causing loss of collagen and slower production of skin cells which contributes to the appearance of ageing. To solve this, the new and improving technology, radio frequency (RF) skin resurfacing seems to do a good job. It can help minimise these fine lines as they begin to occur, particularly those that form around the mouth and eyes.
What are the traditional ways used to fix superficial skin problems?
For many years, we used lasers to treat acne, wounds and burn scars, pores, wrinkles and other skin issues. Lasers can be used to resurface an entire layer of skin, which means it removes the damaged top layer of the skin and tightens the middle layer, leaving the skin smoother and clearer. This could take a few minutes to an hour. However, the downside of laser resurfacing is it has a longer downtime and a higher chance of resulting in pigmentation and scarring, particularly on Asian or dark skin.
