Radiofrequency is used to target lax and sagging skin. The heat from radiofrequency uses energy to trigger collagen and elastin production. Collagen production leads to younger-looking and tighter skin. With each treatment, the patient experiences optimal results.
The heat energy of radiofrequency is not light-based but electrical, which makes the treatment non-invasive and a gentle way to tighten the skin. The top layer of the skin is not damaged, and the energy goes deep within the layers.
Most patients describe the treatment as a slight tingling sensation and a light pressure. Patients also report that there is little to no pain. Feelings on the skin can vary based on the area and depth being treated. The machine heats the skin to a bearable 38-40 degrees, and your practitioner may offer to use a numbing cream for further comfort.
Radiofrequency energy tightens the underlying skin and contours your face creating firm, youthful-looking, and toned skin. The tightening and firming action is boosted by collagen and elastin synthesis, which is non-invasive and relatively painless.
Depending on the treated area, radiofrequency treatment takes about 20 to 45 minutes. There is little downtime, but you may experience redness for up to 24 hours.
Providers find that three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart provide the optimal patient experience and outcome. Results can be seen instantly for skin texture and tone, and you will also see additional improvement after every treatment session. Collagen regeneration does continue to increase with time, and three months after each treatment, you will see further improvement in your skin.
Providers supplement each treatment post-care with exosome technology via Exosome Regenerative Complex powered by ExoSCRT or Exosome Regenerative Complex + ExoSCRT and post-care protocols and aftercare products to ensure optimal results and faster recovery.
