Skin care and skin care treatments are a major field of cosmetic surgery today. Patients can often find the breadth of options overwhelming. Traditional treatments and over-the-counter skin care products make a lot of claims about effectiveness, and for some people, that’s enough. For others, it’s possible to try 30 different products and find none of them effective. For those cases, clinical help from a practiced and an expert physician can alleviate the unsolvable problems. The options discussed here are some of the options available to Dr. Gocke and his team at Virginia Oral, Facial, & Implant Surgery in McLean, VA.

Laser Facial Resurfacing

Laser Facial Resurfacing, in this case, refers to the CO2RE Carbon Dioxide Fractional Laser system by Syneron Candela. This system removes layers of skin in fractionated columns to allow for greater healing and to reduce age spots. It is a very versatile and effective treatment to fix acne scars, scarring lines, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven coloration, and advanced skin damage. It achieves this by splitting the energy beam into a bunch of tiny, spread-out beams to provide an even treatment that heals more evenly, and the process leaves a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

RF Therapy

RF Therapy (Radiofrequency Therapy) is a process for non-surgical skin tightening. RF Therapy has recently gained widespread recognition for its ability to improve your appearance in a completely safe and effective way. Radiofrequency simply refers to radio waves, light that vibrates at a frequency within the radio wave range. Radio waves penetrate deep through human skin and tissue, but apply heat uniformly and slowly, which allows for a very controlled and deep heating process. For most types of clinical skin treatment, the even heating of RF therapy is ideal and necessary for best results. In terms of safety, RF Therapy has been extensively studied for its impact on human health. Every day, nearly everyone is exposed to radio waves and even concentrated RF exposure has shown no adverse health risks.
