Who Is A Candidate For RF Skin Tightening?
RF skin tightening might be an excellent choice if you don't qualify for invasive aesthetic surgeries. This treatment can be performed on numerous parts of the face and body, like the stomach, neck, outer thighs, and upper arms. The most fitting candidates for this service:
- See mild or moderate skin sagging
- Maintain a stable weight
- Are in good general health
- Have lines or wrinkles on their body or face
- Want to enhance the health and look of their complexion
How does RF Skin Tightening Work?
RF skin tightening is considered an outpatient treatment that takes about 30 – 90 minutes to complete. To start, we'll cleanse the target areas and apply a topical numbing agent to provide optimal comfort. The Opus handpiece will then be used to treat all the necessary areas. The RF technology helps stimulate the creation of collagen and elastin, which makes the skin supple and taut over time. Once the treatment is complete, you can get back to your usual day.
Following your procedure, it's normal to experience mild discomfort, swelling, and redness for a few days. During this time, it's essential to moisturize and avoid UV exposure. Since elastin and collagen production takes time, you can expect to see your best results after a few months. The great news is that the results from nonsurgical skin tightening have been known to last 1 – 3 years.
