Radio-frequency Skin Treatments

Anti-Aging by the Sea

Cynthia N. Frazier, MD

Wellness Center located in Southport, NC

As you age, collagen production in your skin slowly decreases, rendering your skin unable to combat aging in the same way it did when you were young. We offer several treatments using radio-frequency to  rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, and body at Anti-Aging by the Sea. These treatments  encourage existing collagen to contract and tighten and increases natural collagen production in your skin, efficiently smoothing wrinkles and slack skin on your face, neck and body. To find out more about the power of radio-frequency, contact Dr. Cynthia Frazier’s team at Anti-Aging by the Sea in Southport, North Carolina, today.

RF Q & A

What skin changes can be treated by RF?

Radio-frequency is used to treat the  skin on your face to create a youthful, rejuvenated appearance. 

  • Smooth crow’s feet and wrinkles on and around the eyelids
  • Resolve creases and smoker’s lines around the mouth
  • Diminish wrinkles and fine lines throughout the face


How does RF work?

RF microneedling  applies radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of your skin while protecting the outermost layers and preventing burns or skin damage. This energy tightens and contracts the collagen in your skin and encourages the production of new collagen. As new collagen is produced, your skin becomes tighter, brighter, and healthier.

What are the benefits of RF over other treatment options?

Other options available for facial rejuvenation include chemical peels, face lifts, dermal fillers, laser treatments and other cosmetic surgeries like a brow lift or eyelid surgery. Radiofrequency has multiple benefits over all of these treatment options:

  • There’s no need for anesthesia and no pain during the procedure, so you don’t need a driver when you’re ready to leave the office
  • There’s no time off of work required, and you can wear makeup immediately following the treatment
  • Because radiofrequency treatments encourage your skin to do what it did when you were younger, the results are completely natural in appearance

 The treatment doesn’t require any incisions, so there is no scarring and no visible signs that you’ve received treatment aside from beautiful, natural results

These benefits make radio-frequency a unique treatment option for patients who want an improved appearance without surgery, downtime or serious risks.

What can I expect during and after the procedure?

RF microneedling does involve some pain. We usually use a BLT local anesthetic cream which makes the procedure easily tolerated. Opus skin resurfacing involves minor pain during the procedure. Over the days following treatment, there may be some swelling, burning or itching of the treated areas. Over the next few weeks,the appearance of your skin will continue to improve as your new collagen goes to work.
