Radio frequency skin tightening procedures have become very popular in recent years because they can provide a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures for correcting skin laxity and improving skin quality. (See Resources below.)
You can get powerful results for some skin problems by using radio frequency skin tightening. It is commonly used as an alternative to laser skin tightening and other skin tightening treatments. Radio frequency skin tightening can be used on both the body and facial skin. For an in-depth discussion by doctors and people who have received the treatment, take a look at RealSelf.
Radio frequency can be used to:
- Tighten flabby skin
- Reduce cellulite
- Reduce down time
- Compliment ultrasonic cavitation treatments
- Enhance microneedling benefits. See RF Microneedling.
When to Consider Non-surgical Skin Tightening?
- When you have mild to moderate loose skin on your face, neck, arms or abdomen
- When you have residual skin laxity after an operative procedure
- When you would like an improvement in the quality of your skin
- When you are unable (or unwilling) to undergo a more invasive, surgical procedure to correct skin laxity.
What To Expect From Radio frequency Treatments
Radio frequency treatments come in packages, usually from 6 to 10 sessions. The intention with each session is to improve the focus area a little bit. Results could be subtle or dramatic depending on the person and the condition of the treatment area. Below is an example of a woman who came in for treatment of the thigh area. The image on the right shows the improvements after 3 sessions of a 10 session program. *You can see that after 3 sessions, the skin just above the knees has be tightened considerably. Also, the ribbons of cellulite just below the buttock are greatly reduced as well.
The overall appearance of the skin in the thigh area has improved also. You can see that it is smoother. Many of the bumpy areas are now gone. These kinds of results are common with radio frequency skin tightening, however, results vary from person to person.
After six radio frequency sessions (image below) you can see a significant difference. The area around the inner tights show has decreased significantly.
RF After Weight Loss
There are many reasons why people gain weight: pregnancy, change in diet, or mobility are some. As often as people have big gains in weight, they have big losses in weight. Unfortunately, big weight gains can stretch the skin and the skin. The skin may not return to the condition it was in before the weight gain. So, after all the great weight loss, some people may be left with unsightly pouches and flabby skin.
To remove the flabby skin, people often choose surgery. This is very traumatic and risky. However, today there is a better alternative. Radio frequency can be used successfully to tighten skin and is a great alternative to more invasive procedures. In radio frequency skin tightening, radio waves are used to directly improve the deeper dermal layer of the skin so that the skin becomes firmer and contours are lifted. Wrinkles can be dramatically reduced.
Combine RF with Cavitation
Radio frequency can be combined with ultrasonic fat cavitation. Cavitation may leave the skin lax. Radio frequency can reduce the laxity and help generate overall better results.
Price: Starts At $80 for One Session, $300 for a Set of 6 Sessions, $438 for 10 Sessions
I’m a Believer
*Being a doctor’s wife my husband was skeptical about this radiofrequency device on whether or not it would show true results, but with me it was something that I simply had to try. You see I had a problamatic area with the loose skin on my thighs and I do exercise. Going to Ivette at “Bellissimo You, ” has made both me and my husband a believer. You can see the pictures of my thighs and glutes on Ivette ‘ s website of Bellissimo You. I have since then bought 3 separate packages trying different areas of my body like my neck and under my arms to promote more collagen and elasticity of my skin. I have now become a long time client, thanks Ivette. (*Results may very from person to person.)
