What is radiofrequency skin tightening?
Radiofrequency skin tightening is a non-surgical, non-invasive skin treatment that uses radiofrequency therapy to tighten the skin. Energy produced by radiofrequency heats the dermal layer of your skin to stimulate collagen production to result in tighter, firmer skin, as well as overall skin rejuvenation.
Why choose radiofrequency skin tightening?
Radiofrequency skin tightening is essentially used as a non-surgical alternative to address sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Being non-surgical, the results are more subtle but in the appropriate circumstances, the results can still be remarkable. The dermatologists at Clear Dermatology particularly love it for tightening creping skin around the eyes and neck.
What does radiofrequency skin tightening feel like?
Most patients report heat and discomfort that is tolerable during the treatment. Topical numbing is not usually necessary. An external cooling device is used to help with the discomfort. After the treatment, the skin does feel like it has experienced a sunburn and cool compresses are encouraged.
When will I see results from radiofrequency skin tightening?
Usually multiple treatments are needed and we at Clear Dermatology encourage the purchase of three treatment sessions, each about 4-6 weeks apart. The improvements can be noted even after the first treatment but will be additive with each treatment session and time.
Am I a good candidate for radiofrequency skin tightening?
Ideal candidates are healthy, non-smoking adults with realistic goals and expectations. It is safe in all skin types. Consult with one of our dermatologists to see if this is the right procedure for your treatment goals.
