Summer Safe Skin Resurfacing: Achieve Radiant Skin All Year Round
Do you ever notice that you pay more attention to your skin in the summer? The longer days and increased sunlight can make every wrinkle and sunspot more noticeable. It’s no surprise that Google search data shows a spike in queries about laser resurfacing during the summer months. However, traditional laser resurfacing is typically recommended for winter due to the need to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments. Thankfully, aesthetic experts have responded with innovative, summer-safe resurfacing options.

At Rejuvenate Austin, we proudly offer two such groundbreaking treatments: Secret RF (radiofrequency microneedling) and Opus Plasma.

These technologies provide effective skin resurfacing without relying on lasers or light-based energy, making them ideal for year-round use.

The Problem with Traditional Laser Resurfacing

Light-based treatments, such as laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies, require patients to avoid sun exposure for at least four weeks before and after the procedure.
This is because the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications like hyperpigmentation or scarring. During the winter, the sun is farther from the earth, and UV exposure is typically lower, making it a safer time for such treatments.

The Solution: Summer Safe Resurfacing

Summer presents unique opportunities for skin care. With children out of school and sports schedules easing up, it’s a great time to focus on yourself. Secret RF microneedling and Opus Plasma are perfect for summer skin resurfacing, offering powerful rejuvenation without the restrictions of traditional laser treatments.

Secret RF Microneedling

Secret RF microneedling combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to target deeper layers of the skin.

Here’s how it works:

Procedure: The treatment involves applying a numbing cream to ensure comfort. Then, ultra-fine needles create micro-injuries in the skin while delivering RF energy to the dermis.

Benefits: These micro-injuries stimulate collagen production, promoting skin tightening and resurfacing. The depth of the treatment can be adjusted to target both superficial and deep dermal layers.

Results: You can expect smoother, firmer skin with reduced fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

Opus Plasma

Opus Plasma utilizes a unique plasma technology to resurface the skin:

Procedure: This treatment uses a rolling hand-piece that delivers controlled plasma energy to the skin’s surface. A numbing cream is applied beforehand to ensure comfort.

Benefits: Opus Plasma treats the superficial dermis, improving skin texture and tone. An additional hand piece can target deeper dermal layers for enhanced skin tightening.

Results: Expect noticeable improvements in skin texture, reduced pigmentation, and overall rejuvenation.

Combining Treatments for Optimal Results

Alternating between Secret RF and Opus Plasma can provide comprehensive skin rejuvenation. These treatments complement each other by targeting different layers of the skin, preventing a plateau in results and maximizing the benefits of each session.


Secret RF microneedling and Opus Plasma offer effective, summer-safe skin resurfacing solutions that allow you to maintain radiant skin all year round. With minimal downtime and the flexibility to treat various skin concerns, these treatments are perfect for anyone looking to enhance their skin’s appearance without the limitations of traditional laser therapies.
