Radiofrequency RF is a unique, non-invasive wrinkle treatment that uses radiowave technology to tighten sagging skin and reverse the effects of aging for a rejuvenated, younger-looking appearance. Thermal energy heat warms the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote tissue contraction for improved skin quality and appearance. Most patients who undergo radiofrequency procedures achieve effective, natural-looking results with only a minimal risk of side effects or other complications. We are proud to offer radiofrequency treatments to our patients as an effective, affordable and nonsurgical solution to correct unwanted lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Radio-frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses radio frequency RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. By manipulating skin cooling during treatment, RF can also be used for heating and reduction of fat. Currently, the most common uses of RF-based devices are to noninvasively manage and treat skin tightening of lax skin including sagging jowls, abdomen, thighs, and arms , as well as wrinkle reduction, cellulite improvement, and body contouring. Alternative techniques include Laser Resurfacing and certain Ultrasound alternatives.
Pekar started by massaging a cool gel onto the right side of my face, and then ran heated conductors on top. It was actually relaxing—and when she was finished with half of my face, I was surprised to see that like magic! After finishing up my face, I wanted to try it on my body, too. I went for the stomach, and she pressed and massaged the area with two different conductors and a touch more heat than she had used above the neck. Again, not painful, just a warm sensation.
With more and more facialists combining cutting edge technology with a hands-on approach when treating the skin, the demand for treatments such as radiofrequency facials is ever increasing. Jennifer Aniston credits them with keeping her skin "lifted", but radiofrequency facials can also soften fine lines while firming the facial contours — both immediately and over time. Abigail James , skincare expert and author of Love Your Skin , explains that if microdermabrasion is "the skin smoother" of the facial world, you can consider radiofrequency "the contour refiner".
