RF SKIN TIGHTENING 

Skin Tightening with Radio Frequency

 

Skin tightening is a procedure that the world has been utterly fascinated with over the years

More than 14 million people visit plastic surgeons each year to pay for skin tightening work

and other skin manipulations.

 

 

What Is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

Radio frequency skin tightening is a process that uses the heat that comes from RF energy to penetrate the layers of the skin. Experts have determined that this process causes the skin to produce increased levels of collagen over time, and that collagen production eliminates skin wrinkles. Collagen is the element that gives different areas of the skin their plumpness. The RF treatments are said to have the ability to improve the elasticity in patient’s skin and decrease the appearance of unfavorable elements like lines and wrinkles.

 

What Areas of the Body Can Receive the Treatment?

A patient can get RF treatment on a wide variety of body parts. Some of the most common areas in which people receive it are the face, neck, arms, knees, stomach, thighs, lower back (love handles) The number of treatments that a patient needs before he or she sees results usually varies between 6 and 12. ( preferably 2 treatments per week for 3 weeks)  Some patients show slight results after the first treatment, and other patients take a little while longer.

 

How Does RF Skin Tightening Work?

When a skin practitioner performs the work, they usually draw a grid on the area to which they will apply the heat. They then spend a certain amount of time applying the heat from the device to each section. They make sure that they treat each section equally. The patient then returns for subsequent treatments. (preferably 2 times per week for 3 weeks)  As stated before, some patients notice results right away while others may take many more additional treatments before they truly see results.

 

The Pros of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Many positives exist to radio frequency skin tightening. People with thin skin or only minimal wrinkling can benefit greatly from its effects.

With the procedure, women with cellulitis can finally solve this problem. The heat diminishes the fatty tissues, leaving the cellulitis-free. The same goes for fatty deposits, RF even reaching the fatty deposits beneath the superficial layers of the skin. (Depending on the area, sometimes best used in addition to Cavi Lipo) 

People who have undergone a liposuction and are left with saggy or lumpy skin can solve this issue with radio frequency skin tightening. This procedure can give the skin a smooth finish, ensuring a well-toned area.

What’s more, the treatment procedure only takes 30 to 45 minutes each session.

 

 

The Cons of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Patients may experience some redness or a little swelling. 

Another con of this treatment is that it is not for everyone and may not be effective for everyone. For example, it is difficult for this treatment to thoroughly restore stretch marks from pregnancy and advanced stages of wrinkling. Prospects must understand the limitations that the procedure may have in their unique situations.

 

Benefits of RF Skin Tightening Over Other Methods

This procedure provides many benefits to those who are eligible for it. One of the advantages that it has over other types of treatment is the cost advantage. RF patients do not have to spend thousands of dollars to get help.

RF treatment also has a shorter recovery time. There is relatively no downtime with RF tightening, whereas some facelift patients may not heal for weeks or months.  Also, the shortened recovery time helps to preserve the patient’s finances.

RF is better for any potential mishaps, as well. A patient can avoid getting a second treatment if the first one produces any minor side effects.  Surgical procedures that involve cutting the skin are permanent and very difficult to correct.
