A non-surgical method of tightening your skin using radiofrequency (RF) therapy is called radiofrequency skin tightening. In this procedure, energy waves are used to heat the dermis, the deepest layer of the skin. The heat thereby stimulates the production of collagen. A protein called collagen is one of the most common components in your body and it is responsible for giving your skin its firmness and creating its framework. Skin sags and wrinkles occur as you age because your cells produce less collagen. In your mid-to-late thirties and forties, collagen quality and quantity begin to decline, leading to skin laxity.
During the procedure, the deep layer of your skin is heated by RF waves between 122 and 167°F (50-75°C). Your body releases heat-shock proteins when your body maintains a temperature over 115°F (46°C) for more than 3 minutes. As a result of these proteins, your body produces new collagen fibers. Generally, RF skin tightening takes less than an hour and is nearly painless.
Results of RF skin tightening vary according to the severity of the patient’s concerns, their personal goals, and their body’s response to treatment. After their final RF skin tightening session, patients can usually expect firmer skin and a slimmer body contour within two to four months. You will be evaluated by Dr. Prema Kothandaraman during your initial consultation for RF skin tightening at the OB-Gyn & Incontinence Center, your options will be discussed, and you will be advised on the best treatment schedule. A series of 3 – 4 RF skin tightening sessions is typically required to achieve desired results.
When performed by a qualified provider, radiofrequency skin tightening can last up to a year. A proper RF skin tightening aftercare routine should be adhered to by patients to maintain the results of RF skin tightening for as long as possible. In most cases the results of RF skin tightening last between 6 and 12 months, however, it is not uncommon for women to elect to have follow-up appointments to maintain their results.
RF skin tightening is a highly customizable treatment that will be tailored to each patient’s specific needs. How many treatments you need and how frequently you will receive them will be dependent on your own skin condition and goals.
Generally, the treatment frequency is between three and four weeks, however, the ideal treatment depends on your skin type and requirements. In cases of mild or moderate skin laxity, treatment appointments may be spaced one month apart, while cases of severe skin laxity will require closer appointments to achieve the best results.
Chances are you’ve searched for ways to address sagging around your lids, cheeks, jaw, or neck. However, jars or bottles of skincare products don’t have the power to reverse the effects of sagging fully. Fortunately, radiofrequency skin tightening treatments do-which means that if you’re looking to reverse skin sagging, you’re in the right place.
The benefits of radiofrequency skin tightening and toning can be beneficial for all skin types and tones and are not affected by sun exposure. All body areas can be treated with RF skin tightening. The face, neck, belly, arms, knees, buttocks, and the entire “saddle bag” area are the most commonly affected areas. As well as tightening and toning the skin, radiofrequency skin tightening body and/or face treatments can also shrink fat cells in areas where fat reduction is desired.
