Radio Frequency is a gentle and comfortable treatment that requires NO downtime. Although it is normal to see some redness and mild swelling, patients can return to normal activity immediately following this procedure. These radio waves get past the outer skin layers and deliver heat energy to the muscles and tissues beneath. The heat helps to contract these layers and build up collagen levels. The overall result tightens up the outer layers of the skin and reduces wrinkling effects.
In this non-surgical approach to firming and tightening the skin, Radio Frequency uses energy to create a field of deep dermal heating. The heat is of a therapeutic nature delivered in the deep layers of the skin, which causes both immediate and delayed collagen improvements. The immediate improvements are a result of existing collagen contraction. The delayed improvements are due to the induction of new collage formation, increased skin nutrition and the production of elastin resulting in a younger firmer skin.
We suggest beginning with a series of 1-6 sessions in addition to your regular, professional skin treatments. Radio Frequency works as a wonderful compliment to microdermabrasion, chemical peels and chemical facial. You may choose additional treatments to address specific problem areas. Radio Frequency is also successfully used to tighten skin over the entire body including abdomen, thighs, buttocks. Fat pockets, cellulite can also be treated in addition to our rejuvenation treatments, resulting in a smoother, younger looking skin. The monopolar radio frequency is credited as the first non-surgical skin-tightening that can safely and effectively treat sagging skin on the jowls, neck, arms, and stomach, as well as cellulite.
