Radio Frequency Facial Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens the skin and improves tone without any discomfort or downtime. Radio Frequency (RF) facial treatments stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin’s deeper layers by using heat. The results are immediate. Your skin will appear suppler and lifted. The treatment employs third-generation radio frequency technology, which provides a non-invasive, pain-free treatment to firm skin and stimulates collagen production.

It’s a pretty versatile treatment because it can help reduce flabby skin, tighten bingo wings, contour and tighten a post-pregnancy tummy, fine lines and wrinkles (on the face and body), saddlebags, and even lift and tighten your bum. Furthermore, Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening comes with the assurance that there will be no downtime.

How does it function?

The radiofrequency energy penetrates the skin layers, heating the skin tissue where the collagen fibres are embedded. The collagen fibres contract immediately as a result of the local heating. Fat cells drain and then shrink, while fibroblast cells (which are part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastin fibres. The result is skin that is tighter, smoother, and younger-looking, with a visible ‘lift.’

What is the treatment like?

The treatment itself is surprisingly relaxing. Each area of your body is treated for 20-30 minutes. All that is required is that you show your therapist your problem areas and lie back on the treatment bed. Some people find the technique to be relaxing.

When can I expect to see outcomes? Most patients will notice an immediate improvement in their skin tightness. More findings are expected in the days following the treatment. The skin is noticeably smoother, and muscle tone is more visible. Multiple sessions are usually required. Typically, one per week until you’ve had 4-8 treatments in total. Our professional staff at Valencia Medical Center will prepare a plan for you ahead of time so you know what to expect.

Are there any unintended consequences? You should expect some redness at times, but it should go away within 30 minutes of treatment.
