– skin tightening –
If you’re looking for ways to tighten your skin without the extended healing time, pain, and expense of cosmetic surgery, you may want to consider radio frequency skin tightening.
This procedure, which is relatively new, is a non-surgical option for people who want to treat wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging. Radio frequency skin tightening is performed by dermatologists and skin care clinics, and uses radio frequency (RF) energy on the skin of the face, heating up the various skin layers to stimulate collagen production, which smoothes and lifts the skin’s surface.
This procedure requires no incisions to be made in the skin and has a low instance of side effects. Radio frequency skin tightening is a viable procedure for many people whose skin has not reacted favorably to laser or thermal treatments in the past.
How It Works
Using patented technology, the RF wand utilizes multi-polar radiofrequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields, which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin.
Skin tightening, and wrinkle reduction occur because the muto-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes the skin to contract, achieving tighter skin, and softening of wrinkles.
