Radio frequency is a non-surgical treatment used to firm the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also very effective as a preventative measure for those who are experiencing the first signs of ageing. While RF treatment isn’t a permanent anti-aging solution, it’s a safe and effective solution that does not require downtime and post-treatment skin care.
Since RF is a form of energy, it produces heat, which then heats the skin’s deeper layers and induces new collagen & elastin production. The heat produced from this energy also encourages cell turnover to help skin become firmer, thicker, and youthful-looking.
Commonly Asked Questions About RF Skin Tightening
How Does It Work?
Radio-frequency skin tightening is a treatment that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to heat skin with the purpose of stimulating cutaneous collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.
