Radio Frequency For Skin Tightening

 

Radio frequency (RF) for Skin Tightening

Radio frequency is a popular method for the non-surgical and painless tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. Radio frequency is commonly used to treat many parts of the body including abdomen, underarms, jowls, forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line and the neck. It is ideal for both men & women in their mid thirties to fifties, who don’t want to undergo a surgical face lift.

How does Radio frequency (RF) work?

 

 

 

 

Target the dermis at a depth of 2 to 4 mm

Goal of treatment includes:

     1)  Immediate collagen contraction
     2)  Long-term collagen stimulation

 

 

RF uses electrical energy to heat the deep layers of the skin, whilst protecting the outer layer. Heating in this area, without damaging the outer layers of skin, causes microscopic changes to the tissues and collagen contraction, with subsequent collagen remodeling over the months that pass. Treatments are comfortable, have no healing time and give immediate results. You are able to resume all your usual activities straight after. A series of treatments is usually required for optimal results.

What kind of results can you expect from Radiofrequency (RF) treatments for skin tightening?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel tighter, with more tightening improvements appearing gradually over the months after treatment. Radio frequency can also be used to enhance a variety of treatments including IPL & laser skin rejuvenation and acne treatment.

If there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, often seen in older patients over sixty, combining RF treatments with Botox and Filler treatments, or a surgical face-lift to remove the excess skin, are other options to achieve a better result.
