Rejuvenate Your Skin With RF Plasma Skin Resurfacing


Aging and environmental exposure can damage the skin and wreak havoc on your complexion. At Sereno Santé, we offer cosmetic skin resurfacing treatments to patients throughout San Jose, CA to help them achieve smooth, glowing skin through nonsurgical means. Board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Maia Chakerian utilizes the ALMA Opus RF plasma skin resurfacing technology to gently remove dead skin cells and reveal beautiful, youthful-looking skin.

What is RF plasma skin resurfacing?

Radio-frequency (RF) plasma skin resurfacing is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure used to remove damaged or dead skin cells one layer at a time. The ALMA Opus RF plasma skin resurfacing technology creates micro-channels in the skin to direct RF energy for healing while simultaneous thermal energy tightens the surrounding tissues. At Sereno Santé, Dr. Chakerian offers customized treatment plans to her patients based on their unique skin irregularities.

What does RF plasma skin resurfacing treat?

RF plasma skin resurfacing can be used to treat numerous skin irregularities, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sagging skin
  • Textured skin
  • Dark spots
  • Trauma or surgical scars

The benefits of RF plasma skin resurfacing

Men and women can enjoy multiple benefits from RF plasma skin resurfacing treatments, including:

  • Little to no downtime
  • Quick treatment sessions
  • Fast results
  • Rejuvenated, smooth skin
  • Glowing complexion
  • Highly customized treatment plans

Candidates for RF plasma skin resurfacing

Individuals are candidates for RF plasma skin resurfacing if they:

  • Are in good, general health
  • are seeking skin rejuvenation treatments through nonsurgical means
  • Have fine lines and wrinkles
  • Have scars that can be treated with skin resurfacing techniques
  • Have textured or rough skin
  • Have loose or sagging skin that can be treated with skin resurfacing techniques

Dr. Chakerian will assess your skin and review your medical history to determine if you can safely participate in RF plasma skin resurfacing treatments.

What an RF plasma skin resurfacing session looks like

Treatment sessions are performed in one of our private treatment rooms at Sereno Santé in San Jose, CA. Depending on the nature of your treatment, Dr. Chakerian may suggest either local anesthesia or sedation for increased comfort during your procedure. The RF plasma skin resurfacing applicator is passed over the skin so that the radiofrequency energy can destroy dead or damaged skin cells and stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Is there any downtime?

Patients are permitted to return home after their treatment. Mild redness, irritation, and tenderness at each treatment site are expected and typically subside within a few days. Dr. Chakerian will make recommendations to care for your skin, including:

  • Avoiding UV exposure
  • Wearing sunscreen
  • Avoiding hair removal practices over each treatment area
  • Avoid picking or peeling at each treatment area

Once the tissue has gone through the peeling and flaking period, patients will begin to notice smoother, rejuvenated skin.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments will be based on your personal cosmetic goals and Dr. Chakeriana’s professional recommendations. Treatment sessions can also vary in intensity, with deeper treatments providing more noticeable results and a longer recovery time. Dr. Chakerian often suggests lighter treatments for first-time patients and then increasing treatments and intensities as needed to help achieve their desired goals.
