This therapy is a non-invasive way of tightening the skin, contouring the face to look youthful, and doing away with stretch marks.
RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to sixties, with any skin color.
It is commonly used to treat the forehead (lift brows and tightens forehead skin), under the eyes (thickens the skin and tightens and lifts the upper cheek skin), cheeks (lifts slightly and diminishes enlarged pores), mid-face, jawline (diminishes jowls and sagging along the jawline), and the neck (tightens skin and diminishes wrinkling of the neck).
However, if there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, often seen in older patients over sixty, this procedure may not show a significant enough improvement, and a traditional mid-face, face, or brow lift operation may be recommended in order to remove the excess skin, therefore achieving a better result.
In combination with other modalities, as we have discussed above, RF can be used to enhance a variety of treatments including hair removal, photorejuvenation, pigmented and vascular problems, acne treatment, and cellulite treatment.
RF energy treatment is a new and promising technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those people who either don’t want or don’t believe they are old enough to have a surgical procedure to resolve their onset of skin laxity.
Radio Frequency for Skin Tightening
We combine the proven technology of radio frequency (RF) for heating the subcutaneous region of the body with a therapeutic cooling head to produce maximum results with no discomfort. Lift and tighten skin without surgery to restore youthful face and body vitality.
• reduce fine lines and wrinkles
• lift flaccid face and neck
• tighten crepey skin and tummy
• reduce cellulite and “orange peel”
• tighten buttocks and thighs
How does radiofrequency affect skin tightening?
RF produces a mild increase in the temperature of the skin and subcutaneous area below the skin. When this warming is sustained for several minutes collagen synthesis begins and over a series of treatments visible skin tightening occurs.
What treatment time and frequency are required for maximum results?
Typically the face and neck require a series of 6 to 12 weekly treatments lasting
20 minutes. Body treatments series of 8 to 20 sessions, twice a week for 30, minutes depending on the number of areas treated.
What will I experience in an RCPower treatment?
After your skin is thoroughly cleansed a clear gel is applied and your skin is cooled with the cryogen applicator for about a minute. Then the RF applicator is applied to the area for about 6 minutes to bring the temperature beneath the skin to the effective thermal level. This procedure is repeated until the full target area is treated. Your skin will alternately feel very cool and very warm but with little discomfort.
Will I see results in the first treatment?
Most clients see an immediate lifting and plumping in the face and neck. Often underarm flabbiness and sagging show a more immediate result as well.
