Fine lines, sagging, and fragility are hallmarks of aging skin, but did you know that there’s a treatment that can easily rejuvenate your appearance? RF skin tightening, offered by Skin Suite Rx in Chino, CA, can tighten, tone, and contour your skin. Best of all, this treatment is quick and non-invasive.
What Is RF Skin Tightening?
EndyMed 3DEEP RF skin tightening is a revolutionary treatment that can help you say goodbye to sagging skin, wrinkles, and cellulite. It can also slim and contour the body. This approach to tightening works by harnessing the power of radiofrequency energy to heat a deep layer of skin called the dermis, stimulating collagen production. That extra collagen helps plump and tighten the skin, filling in fine lines and loose, crepey skin.
Which Parts of the Body Can This Be Performed On?
The face and neck are the most popular parts of the body to be treated. But this approach to skin tightening can also be effective elsewhere on the body, including on the abdomen, thighs, and arms.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
These treatments are easy and comfortable. We’ll ask that you arrive at our practice with clean skin that’s free of makeup, creams, or lotions. We’ll then use external wands to direct radiofrequency waves to your skin. EndyMed 3DEEP has three different wands, each of which works with its own purpose: contouring, microneedling, and fractional skin resurfacing.
You may feel warmth, and possibly a tingling sensation, as the devices work. Some patients compare the treatment to a hot stone massage. Your entire session will last less than one hour, making it an ideal lunchtime treatment.
What Type of Recovery Is Involved?
Your skin may be pinkish immediately following treatment, but this will subside quickly. Patients are generally able to return immediately to their regular activities.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Most patients notice that their skin seems tighter, smoother, and more contoured almost immediately, and because this treatment stimulates collagen production, your results will continue to improve over time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A series of six treatments is often recommended. This approach to skin tightening does not offer permanent results, but many patients schedule one or two maintenance treatments a year after their initial series.
Who Is This For?
Your Skin Is Showing Signs of Age
The best candidates are men and women who are frustrated with signs of aging, which may include loose skin, fine lines, sun damage, or large pores. Some individuals also turn to this treatment because they desire a treatment that will improve the texture and tone of their skin more than a facial or a chemical peel would. Many RF skin tightening patients are between 40 and 60 years of age.
You’re in Good General Health
Patients who undergo this treatment should be in good overall physical and mental health. If you have a Pacemaker, a defibrillator, implanted electronic devices or other metal implants, or rosacea, you may not be a candidate. This treatment is also not suitable for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
You’re Realistic About the Outcome
The ideal patient understands this treatment and is realistic about the outcomes it is likely to yield, which may be less dramatic than surgery.
What Advantages Are Associated With RF Skin Tightening?
It’s a Non-Surgical Option
This treatment is an excellent option for patients who are ready to fight back against aging skin with a non-surgical option. Some patients even consider this approach to skin tightening to be a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. Compared with surgery, RF skin tightening is less expensive and requires no downtime. RF skin tightening also causes less stress on the body.
It Can Increase Hyaluronic Acid
This treatment encourages the body’s production of collagen and elastin, and when both of those increase, hyaluronic acid is likely to follow. Hyaluronic acid binds together water molecules, increasing moisture levels in the skin. When you have plenty of hyaluronic acids, your skin is more likely to be smooth and moisturized. Moisture plumps the skin, filling in fine lines and soothing redness.
It’ll Leave Your Skin Healthier
In addition to the rejuvenating aspects of this treatment, it can also leave your skin healthier. The gentle heat generated by this treatment increases the metabolism of your cells. It also widens the blood vessels, allowing blood flow to increase and bringing more oxygen in. The enhanced blood flow encourages dermal remodeling and bolsters the overall health of your skin.
It’s a Custom Treatment
Each patient comes to us with a unique set of cosmetic concerns, and we’re able to customize RF skin tightening treatments for every patient. We can make adjustments based on your age, skin type, and area of concern.
Patients love the gentle and relaxing nature of this treatment. There are no needles and anesthesia is not involved. The wand emits a gentle warmth, and some patients even fall asleep during their sessions.
It’s a Safe Treatment
This approach to skin tightening has been cleared by the FDA and has been widely and safely performed. The technology used in this treatment is carefully monitored and controlled to ensure that the temperature reached is both safe and optimal.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will My Insurance Plan Cover This Treatment?
Because RF skin tightening is performed primarily for cosmetic purposes, most health insurance plans do not cover it.
Is There an Age Requirement?
Patients seeking out this treatment should be at least 18 years of age.
Is This Appropriate for All Skin Types?
Yes, this treatment works well on all skin types and tones.
Can I Pair This With Other Treatments?
Yes, patients often combine RF skin tightening with other treatments. Many individuals opt to have this treatment performed in combination with body contouring and anti-aging treatments.
Can I Perform This Treatment on Myself at Home?
Radiofrequency devices can be purchased for home use, but they generally aren’t as powerful as the technology used by a professional. The results obtained with a home device may not be as noticeable or as long-lasting.
Can I Do Anything To Ward Off the Aging Process?
There are several steps you can take to keep your skin looking its healthy best, including drinking plenty of water, adhering to a healthy diet, and avoiding excessive sun exposure. Using high-quality moisturizers and serums can also help.
But even if you take those steps, it’s important to remember that it’s normal for the skin to produce less collagen as the body ages. That’s why RF skin tightening, which encourages the body to produce more of that essential collagen, is so popular.
How Can I Get Started?
If you’re interested in pursuing skin tightening, the first step is to schedule a consultation at our practice. This appointment will give us a chance to evaluate your skin, review your medical history, and talk with you about your cosmetic goals. We’ll work with you to determine whether this treatment is the right approach.
