Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Q & A

What’s RF (radiofrequency) skin tightening?

RF skin tightening is a skin treatment that lets you enjoy clear, rejuvenated skin by repairing and rebuilding the collagen in your body.

With this procedure, we uses a small machine to induce the production of new collagen through the use of heat. Heat from RF waves warms the various layers of the skin and penetrates multiple layers to stimulate collagen production and provide the best results possible.

Since collagen is what gives your skin its youthful, firm appearance, stimulating collagen production gives you younger looking skin, and that can increase your self-esteem.

What skin concerns can RF skin tightening treat?

RF skin tightening treats numerous skin problems and is safe for various parts of the body. This procedure may be a good option if you want to:

  • Fight the signs of aging
  • Prevent or reduce the appearance of acne
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks

What are the benefits of RF skin tightening compared with other options?

One of the biggest benefits of RF skin tightening is the fast results. You won’t need to wait weeks or months to start seeing the new you (like you would with a surgical treatment option).

This treatment is pain-free. Expect to feel some heat on your face, but it’s warm, not hot. The temperature is similar to what you would feel during a hot stone massage. You’ll also feel vibrations as we use the wand over your face.

RF skin tightening is a relatively quick procedure. Depending on the targeted area, or areas, treatment can take a few minutes to one hour. The recovery requires minimal to no downtime, and you can return to work or other activities immediately after treatment.

Are there side effects associated with RF skin tightening?

The possible side effects of RG skin tightening are rare and minimal but may include:

  • Slight swelling of the area
  • Tingling of the skin
  • Mild skin redness

Rebuilding or repairing collagen offers many benefits when you want to improve the radiance of your skin. RF skin tightening encourages collagen to rebuild, refreshing your look. Schedule an appointment online with us to take the first step toward youthful looking skin.
