What is Skin Tightening?

RF skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses radio frequency energy to heat tissue and stimulate collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines, UV damage, and loose, sagging skin.

The technique induces tissue rebuilding and production of new collagen. Collagen in the tissue is heated to create immediate results which is then followed by an overall skin remodeling as collagen production continues to increase over time.

Radio-frequency skin tightening is best recommended for areas where loose and sagging skin is apparent and a redefining of the skin’s elasticity is desired.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

RF skin tightening works by combining mono and bipolar radio frequencies using 30-50 watt output power. The key advantage of RF skin tightening is that is uses three or more electrodes which allows for greater delivery of the waves, allowing for a more targeted and deeper penetration.

A typical treatment will usually last 10-60 minutes, with sessions recommended every four weeks, and 6-10 sessions are usually recommended in a single treatment program. The process is relatively pain-free, but some patients experience redness in the treated area for about an hour after, as well as swelling for 24-48 hours after.Results are typically seen immediately after treatment and can last for years if maintained properly.

The process uses low-frequency waves that, when they come into contact with the skin, cause vibrations that cause the skin to tighten in response thereby making wrinkles and pores appear smaller.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

RF skin tightening is recommended for sagging and loose skin and is therefore suitable for all areas of the body, even the face.

Unlike CoolSculpting, RF skin tightening does not require any topical application of a cooling agent or any post-treatment applications of lotions or serums.
