Loose skin doesn’t have to mean invasive measures. Skip the facelift and discover non-invasive treatment options that lift, tighten and contour your skin. Radiofrequency (RF) energy has made nonsurgical skin tightening simpler and more effective – and could be right for you.
Radiofrequency treatments are procedures involving the use of a radiofrequency energy device to heat and tighten tissue to boost blood flow and break down cellulite and fat. The radiofrequency energy heats the skin without damaging it, in order to break down fatty cells and stimulate collagen production, which improves skin tone and elasticity. Radiofrequency treatments can be used to treat excess pockets of fat on the face, stomach, hips and thighs, and to reduce cellulite and tighten sagging skin caused by weight loss or pregnancy. The treatment is very safe and has minimal downtime.
What Can Radiofrequency Skin Contouring Treat?
RF skin contouring has a wide variety of applications. Many patients are interested in accomplishing one or more of the following:
- Skin tightening on the face, arms, abdomen, buttocks and leg
- Cellulite treatment
- Fat reduction on the arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs
- Complete body contouring
- Pre liposuction skin tightening
- Post liposuction smoothing
How Does RF Skin Contouring Work?
In skin tightening and body contouring aesthetic treatments, RF waves are directed beyond the first layer of skin to the deep dermis and sub-dermal layers without impacting the epidermis (superficial layer of the skin). Different RF devices use different numbers and configurations of electrodes and varying electromagnetic fields to deliver RF waves below the skin’s surface and achieve their effects. The number of electrodes and their arrangement contributes to how the device reaches and maintains energy temperature and what patients experience during treatment.
