Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.
Typically, treatment requires a series of 8-12 treatment sessions lasting 30–45 minutes.
The overall result is tighter, brighter skin and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles.
Radiofrequency energy is primarily used to treat skin laxity through facial tightening, but the treatment also improves skin tone and texture. This protocol is FDA-approved as a non-surgical treatment for wrinkles and facial skin imperfections.
Because it is non-invasive, there is no downtime or recovery. Results are immediately noticeable, and they become even more so in the weeks following the treatment as the build-up of collagen stimulates further skin contraction. You may experience some redness after the treatment, but it should resolve within 1-2 hours.
RF is ideal for the face, chin line, slack jaw-line and full body, including the abdomen, saddle bags, thighs, upper arms, and hips. It has FDA-approval for the eye-lids as well.
Patients can expect to see immediate results that improve with every treatment.
Results can last from 6 months to a year or more. This varies from patient to patient based on age and skin condition, as well as the patient’s health and lifestyle.
- Forehead (lifts brows and tightens forehead skin)
- Under Eyes (thickens skin and tightens and lifts the upper cheek)
- Cheeks (lifts slightly and diminishes enlarged pores)
- Mid-Face and Jaw Line (diminishes jowls and sagging along the jaw line)
- Neck (treats “chicken neck” by tightening skin and diminishing wrinkles)
