"Cindy is absolutely phenomenal. I got botox injection to help relieve my migraines and she was amazing. The procedure took very little time and I had no pain during or after the procedure. She was extremely helpful with everything and very knowledgable. The office was beautiful and homie, so I didn't feel any stress sitting in a stiff doctor's office. I would recommend her to everyone and will be going back again."- J.M. / Google / May 22, 2018
"Caring and Compassionate - I started going to Dr.Korba a little over a year ago. A little back story I had been seeing a different surgeon (had part of my colon removed and a ileostomy placed. After that surgery I got very sick and couldn't keep anything down. My surgeon didn't seem concerned and got very nasty the last time I saw him and I was to nervous to go back) So I get a appt with Dr.Korba and soon as he sees me he is very concerned as my weight was only 68lbs & I'm 5'6 and 35 years old. He set me up for blood work and a couple different test. I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. He started me on a medication and I've been so much better. A year later I'm at 108lbs and have a colonoscopy scheduled. If everything looks good I'll be able to have my ileostomy reversed! Dr.Korba is a very kind and compassionate doctor. He is also a man of God! I can't say enough good things about him. He's just an all around good person and actually really cares about his patients."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 07, 2021

"He's absolutely the best in our opinion. He takes time with his patients. He really listens to his patients. Also he is a Godly man. He has been both my husband's and my surgeon for many years. We consider him a great friend as well. We highly recommend him for patients needing a surgeon. "- B.A. / Healthgrades / Jul 23, 2017
Am I A Candidate for RF Skin Resurfacing?
There are multiple factors to keep in mind when considering which RF skin resurfacing regimen might be a good match for you. This treatment is designed for anyone who is dissatisfied with their facial condition. RF resurfacing procedures will help minimize these aesthetic flaws. Even more, it works great for men and women who have an uneven texture, patches of flaky skin, or various other imperfections. This procedure may not be the best option for people with pigmented skin or current acne breakouts.
How is RF Skin Resurfacing Performed?
At your treatment, you will sit in our special treatment chair while the Opus handheld device is passed over your face, honing in on the targeted areas for improvement. You will notice the warmth from the applicator, then cold air from the system's built-in cooling system. The radiofrequency wavelengths aim to get rid of damaged and dead skin cells, as well as encouraging increased collagen production. Depending on the condition of your skin, the procedure will be adjusted for the best results. After your session, you may see redness similar to a sunburn, but this will go away after a short period. Your revitalized look should remain for five years or more and can be redone as you desire. Though your new look should be long-lasting, it's essential to be aware that this service does not end the innate aging process.
RF Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How much does RF skin resurfacing cost?
Your RF skin resurfacing expenses differ based on the type of treatment you choose. At your consultation, Dr. Korba will listen to your skin issues and goals before reviewing the different types of resurfacing. After this, he can help you choose your resurfacing treatment and discuss costs.
How can I help my skin recover after RF skin resurfacing?
Dr. Korba or someone on his staff will discuss ways to help your skin heal after a skin resurfacing treatment. The number one rule is to not pick or peel your skin. This can cause lasting damage, such as scarring. You should forgo all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. You should also apply SPF 50 or wear a hat if you're outdoors. Our team can recommend certain products to help ease the treated areas.
How often should I get RF skin resurfacing treatments?
Based on the RF skin resurfacing method you and Dr. Korba select for your session, you might need to wait several weeks or even a few months between treatments. Deeper treatments will give you longer-lasting results; however, they will need more time for recovery. You should tell Dr. Korba how often you want to return for appointments so he can take this into account when recommending a treatment plan in your initial consultation.
