Even with quite a few amazing advances in the field of preventative care, you cannot protect your skin forever. Over the years, your skin can easily become damaged and worn, and restoring your youthful appearance will most likely require professional assistance. Our radiofrequency skin tightening treatments can tighten and tone skin without creating any scars. These treatments are an excellent option for age-related blemishes on the face, buttocks, back, legs and midsection.
Collagen and Other Vital Proteins
Your skin is actually a very complex organ that produces certain proteins to protect itself. While healthy skin is extremely adept at combating sun damage and harsh chemicals, there may come a point when it begins fighting an uphill battle. Even the air you come into contact with every day could be damaging the outer layers of your skin, and these factors eventually slow the rate at which your body produces collagen and other important proteins. That is when many patients begin to experience age-related cosmetic problems such as discoloration, lesions, visible capillaries and sagging skin.
The Disadvantages of Topical Creams
Many have turned to over-the-counter creams and ointments to tighten their skin. Products that contain collagen often make skin feel softer for a short period of time, but that is just because they temporarily hydrate the dermis. Collagen molecules are much larger than most other molecules, and they cannot penetrate the outer layers of skin. In order to enjoy long-term results, your body must produce more collagen naturally. Radiofrequency energy remains one of the most effective ways to do this.
RF Skin Tightening and the Cosmetic Industry
Radiofrequency treatments have become tremendously popular in recent years, and thousands of patients are now enjoying the many benefits of this unique technology. Various radio frequencies produce energy that heats and stimulates your skin. Instead of injecting dermal fillers to stimulate collagen production, the energy will trigger your body’s natural healing process. Modern RF skin tightening machines give our cosmetic specialists an incredible amount of control over the results, and most patients begin to notice changes to their skin within just weeks.
Your First Appointment
Most patients find the treatment to be comfortable. The length of the appointment depends on the size of the area that must be treated. RF skin tightening therapy can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete, and you can head right back to your regular daily activities afterward. In the following few weeks, your skin should begin to tighten up and your other blemishes should become less visible. Patients can schedule multiple appointments for more dramatic changes to their appearance.
