FAQ Time: Let’s Talk Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
- Posted on: Jan 15 2018
It seems like just about everyone and their mother knows something about skincare. Whether it’s as basic as washing your face before bed or as complex as understanding collagen loss as you age, it’s safe to say that you know at least something about skincare. One procedure, however, that not many patients are familiar with is called Radiofrequency Skin Tightening. As one of the most popular treatments that we offer here at Form Medial Spa, Radiofrequency Skin Tightening helps give patients real results. So, what is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening and how can you learn more about it? With a list of frequently asked questions, of course.
FAQ: What Is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?
This noninvasive skin tightening procedure can be used all over the face and body and works by heating up the underlying layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Which, over time, gives patients fuller, tighter, more youthful looking skin.
FAQ: Who Is the Ideal Candidate?
One of the best things about Radiofrequency Skin Tightening is that unlike other skin treatments that only work on certain skin types and colors, it can be used on all different skin colors— which means that it’s practically ideal for everyone.
FAQ: Does It Hurt?
Before we start treatment, an esthetician will apply an anesthetic topical cream to help minimize any discomfort by the laser. During the actual treatment itself, a handpiece that emits cool air will also be used to help reduce any pain or discomfort. If you experience any severe pain at any time, make sure to notify the physician so they can make the proper adjustments.
FAQ: What Are Results Like?
Most patients see an immediate improvement in their skin’s overall condition, but you will start to see an improvement over the next few months as the collagen production increases. For some patients, their results will last for two years.
FAQ: How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Depending on your skin’s condition and the area being treated, it is usually recommended that patients get two or three treatment sessions that are spaced about one month apart.
For best results, two or three treatment sessions, spaced about one month apart, are usually recommended. Many patients see improvement in the overall condition of their skin immediately after being treated, and skin continues to improve over the next few months as collagen production increases. In some cases, the results of sublative skin tightening last for two years.
