Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Treatments
Wrinkles, fine lines and lax skin make us look tired and dull. Your face no longer reflects how you feel inside and you start matching the way you dress and the way you act to the reflection in the mirror. Big mistake! The moment you let age take control of your life you don’t stand a chance.
One of the secrets of living long and fulfilling lives is feeling and acting young.
I recently saw this inspiring documentary about 6 older women who refuse to give in, look fabulous, and defy the expectations of aging: Fabulous Fashionists. It’s a must watch for everyone.
If your skin is influencing the way you feel, now is the time to do something about it. Radio frequency skin tightening (RF) also called a non-surgical facelift, is a non-invasive, non-ablative treatment to tighten the skin. There is no down time and it is practically painless.
Radio frequency skin treatments are considered one of the most effective skin rejuvenation procedures that do not involve surgery.
Radio frequency Skin Tightening Benefits:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightens the skin
- Corrects facial imperfections
- Improves skin texture
- Stimulates collagen production
- Suitable for all skin colours
- No down time
- Very little or no pain
- Stimulates blood circulation promoting a healthy skin
- Results are visible immediately after treatment with the skin keeping to improve in the following weeks as more collagen is produced.
How does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening works?
A non-ionising electromagnetic current penetrates to the deep layers of the skin heating up the water and proteins. The fibroblasts are stimulated to produce more collagen thickening the dermis. The skin will regain some of its lost elasticity and contract diminishing fine lines and tightening the skin.
What areas can be treated?
The most frequently treated areas are the face, neck and décolletage. However, just about any area of the body can be treated. It can help to tighten loose skin in the stomach and underarms when loosing weight or after childbirth and also to reduce cellulite.
Who are the best candidates for this procedure?
The best results for RF rejuvenation are seen in people with mild to moderate skin laxity, usually aged 30-60. Older people with an excess of sagging skin will also benefit but may require surgery to achieve the desired results.
Does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening hurt?
It is usually a very comfortable procedure with just a warmth sensation in the skin, however certain areas, specially close to the bone, are more sensitive and there can be a bit of pain. Pain is described like the flick of the rubber band and it is easily tolerated.
Can I return to work or my daily activities right away?
There is no down time and you can return to your daily activities right away. It is possible to experience some redness but it should subside within 1 or 2 days. You can apply makeup right away.
How many treatments do I need?
Depending on the condition of your skin it may be recommended you undergo 4-8 treatments for best results. Treatments are spaced between 2-4 weeks. After that a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months should help you keep age at bay.
It is best to combine with a good skin care program containing vitamin A & C that will help you keep your skin looking radiant in the long term.
It is also important to apply sunscreen everyday and wear a hat when under the sun. A large portion of the damage to our skin is caused by the sun.
Can the results be seen right away?
You will see an improvement immediately after treatment, however the effects are long lasting and your skin will get better over the following weeks, as collagen builds up.
Before and After Care
- Do not expose the area to the sun or solarium for 2 weeks before and after treatment.
- Use SPF30+ sunscreen and a hat when under the sun.
- A lotion with betacarotine or aloe vera will help with any redness that may develop.
