RadioFrequency or RF treatment of acne scars is a revolutionary method of acne scar revision. This method of scar revision does not use laser- light interactions, but uses radiofrequency energy to remodel collagen and scars. The pulse of energy is delivered via a fractional technique into the deeper layers of skin. Energy and heat breaks down the scar tissue, with minimal damage to the upper layers of skin. This process is gentle, and has very little, if any downtime. RF can be used as a stand-alone treatment for certain types or acne scars, or it can be combined with anti-acne treatments as well as other laser treatments.

Facts on subablative Radiofrequency and acne scarring

  • Fractional RF does not use damaging laser energy
  • RF or RadioFrequency uses  gentle radiowaves to heat the deeper layers of the skin
  • Dermal heating denatures, and remodels collagen, in turn improving scars
  • This treatment can be combined with anti- acne treatments
  • RadioFrquency is best for mild to moderate scarring
  • In moderate to severe scarring, RF can also be combined with lasers as part of the Synergy Method of acne scar revision
  • Fractional RadioFrequency requires 3-5 treatments for optimal improvement
  • After each RF treatment the skin is red for a period of 12- 36 hours
  • This treatment is safe in all skin types and can be combined with Roaccutane as part of the Acne Free RF Program
