What is RF Skin Tightening?
Unfortunately, aging is an unavoidable occurrence that we all must face one day. Fortunately, 785 Aesthetic Med Spa offers a variety of ways to fight back. RF skin tightening is a minimally invasive procedure designed to naturally encourage the production of elastin and collagen that your skin has been lacking. It can leave your skin looking soft, smooth, and full of life, all without the risks of surgery or more invasive procedures. Our team uses the Morpheus8™ device to stimulate natural collagen and elastin production without the need for more invasive techniques.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for RF Skin Tightening?
While surgical procedures, such as facelifts, may be more beneficial in reducing severe cases of loose or lax skin, RF skin tightening can still be a useful option for patients with mild to moderate cases who wish to avoid surgery. The procedure can be used to treat most areas of the body, including the face, neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. The following issues are commonly combated with RF skin tightening:
- Crow's feet
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Nasolabial folds
- Lines or folds between the eyebrows
- Lines on the forehead
- Loose skin above or below the eye
How is RF skin tightening performed?
Before the procedure can begin, the targeted area will need to be washed and sterilized in order to ensure there is no leftover makeup, oil, or dirt on the skin. At this point, the Morpheus8 handpiece is strategically placed along all of the targeted areas, ensuring each of them is treated appropriately. While this happens, the device is creating tiny micro-channels within the skin that transfer RF energy throughout the system and increase the body's natural production of collagen. Sessions usually last for around 30 minutes and do not require an anesthetic of any kind.
What is the recovery process for rf skin tightening?
Once the treatment has concluded, patients are free to return to their normal routines with no downtime required. Some slight redness and irritation might occur but are entirely expected. This will slowly subside until the skin begins to peel. It is important not to pick at the peeling skin during this time, as it could further damage the treatment area. While some patients may see results as quickly as a few sessions, it usually takes 6 – 8 weekly treatments until the desired results become noticeable.
