Skin tightening treatments are a noninvasive alternative for repairing skin laxity and improving skin condition. This rejuvenating procedure can tighten skin and reduce the appearance of excess fat and wrinkles without damaging the epidermis or upper layer of the skin.
Patients suffering from residual skin laxity following an operative procedure or loose skin around the face, neck, arms and abdomen are all eligible for treatment. RF procedures are safe for all skin tones.
The procedure uses radiofrequency waves or RF waves to heat the deep layers of the skin. The heating of the dermis layer helps promote the growth of new collagen to enhance the skin’s elastic properties, while lessening the appearance of excess fat in the area.
The procedure itself is very gentle and feels more like a hot massage, however slight pain may incur when the anesthesia wears off; long-lasting pain is rare
Each treatment session can last between an hour to an hour and thirty minutes.
There are no known significant risks to the treatment. Individual risks may be discussed during your consultation.
Although recovery time varies among individuals, there is usually no down-time associated with the procedure. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction results will gradually appear over a 2 to 6 months period of time and can last up to 2 years.
Costs will vary upon the scope and length of treatment. A written quote can be provided upon professional consultation at one of our clinics.
