RF Skin Tightening

RF Skin Tightening tightens the skin by using radiofrequency wavelengths to heat and increase the skin’s elastin and collagen production. Book your free skin consultation today to find out more.

WHAT IS RF SKIN TIGHTENING?

RF skin tightening stands for radio frequency skin tightening. This method is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure, which is able to tackle signs of ageing as well as blemishes and irregularities. 

Skin tightening procedures with radio frequency can tackle various areas of the body. They can also perform a number of functions. Since they promote the production and function of collagen and elastin, they can be used for body contouring, face contouring, the removal of sun damage, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, reducing cellulite and stretch marks, and even firming loose skin.

The Accent Prime is an RF micro needling treatment that heats the skin and can therefore target deeper layers of the dermis in order to minimise imperfections and impurities. 

HOW RF SKIN TIGHTENING WORKS

One of the most noticeable signs of ageing is a loss in skin elasticity which causes sagging skin, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. These can also be accelerated by sun exposure and poor lifestyle habits, such as smoking. 

RF Skin Tightening works by using RF energy waves to heat the skin up to 40 degrees. This causes the collagen fibres to heat up which triggers a number of healing reactions from the body. This includes the stimulation of new collagen and elastin, tissue retraction as skin is immediately tightened and firmed, and improved blood circulation which leads to overall skin rejuvenation.

The result is healthier, plumper, and more youthful skin without the need for any downtime.

COMMONLY TREATED AREAS

RF Skin Tightening can be used on any part of the body that is losing elasticity, including facial skin, neck, and décolletage. As the face is the most noticeable feature and more prone to the effects of sagging skin, many people choose to use this procedure to tighten up their jowls and jawline, as well as the nasolabial folds which run from the nose down to the mouth.

DOES RF SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?

Since this treatment focusses on collagen production, more specifically the body’s own healing ability, most patients will get excellent results from RF skin tightening. Of course, it is always best to speak to your cosmetic surgeon to see if the procedure will provide the aesthetic results you require.

IS RF SKIN TIGHTENING SAFE?

The procedure is relatively safe, especially when executed by an experienced dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. As Accent Prime skin tightening uses radio frequency instead of laser, it is suitable for all skin types and skin tones. However, keep in mind that any procedure is accompanied by a risk of complications. Even though rare, RF skin tightening can lead to complications such as infection.

Patients should expect some minor side effects after treatment. Most skin tightening procedures can cause a little redness after the treatment. The redness usually dissipates after a week. Some pink shades can remain for a couple of weeks after the procedure. This can easily be covered with mineral makeup. To ensure your makeup is safe to use after skin tightening, be sure to contact your cosmetic surgeon or your dermatologist for advice.

Benefits of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening can help you to turn back the clock to restore your skin’s bounce and youthfulness. There are many benefits to this procedure, including:

Anti Ageing Skin Treatment

HOW LONG DOES RF SKIN TIGHTENING LAST?

RF skin tightening results are permanent, but it is important to remember that the procedure does not stop the natural ageing process. For example, the procedure can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but these can return in the future because of natural ageing. As such, it is important to take good care of your skin and live a healthy lifestyle after the procedure to slow down the natural ageing process. Advice on skincare can also be obtained at Dr Lanzer Skin Clinics.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TREATMENTS?

That depends on what your ultimate aim is with this procedure. For example, if you are using it to get rid of blemishes and sun damage, using sunscreen post-treatment is usually enough to keep further problems at bay. If you are getting the procedure for its anti-ageing effects, then some additional maintenance treatments over time will provide the most benefit.

HOW MANY RADIO FREQUENCY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Once again, this depends on the particular problem you are having. Some people need only three treatments over the course of time, while others need more than six. At the end of the day, it depends on the problem you want to fix.

Some problems such as deeper acne scarring usually require more treatments than certain sun damage spots. An appointment with the cosmetic surgeon will provide you with more insight on how many treatments will be required.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT?

Your professional clinician will go through everything that you can expect to happen during your treatment at your initial consultation, as well as any correct aftercare steps to be taken. This procedure involves moving a handheld device over the affected area which will emit radio frequency wavelengths into the skin to heat and trigger the body’s natural healing response and stimulate collagen production.

AFTERCARE AND RECOVERY AFTER YOUR TREATMENT

While any side-effects for RF Skin Tightening are considered minimal, this will ultimately depend on a number of factors and the individual having the procedure. Most people can expect some redness and warmth in the treatment area which is only temporary. There is no downtime required for this procedure and you can get back to work straightaway. 

To get the most out of your treatment, avoid any coolness to the area immediately afterwards as inflammation actually encourages the production of new collagen. Stay away from exfoliation products a week before and after your procedure. Use a 30+ sunscreen following the treatment and as needed for the next 72 hours as the skin repairs itself.

What does RF skin tightening feel like?

If you're concerned about what this procedure feels like, don't be! It can actually be a very relaxing experience as the heat is combined with the gentle movement of the hand device over the skin which many find warming and comfortable. The treatment is considered to be pain-free and non-invasive.

How much does RF skin tightening cost?

A non-surgical skin tightening procedure is usually more affordable than surgery. However, it is still subject to similar things in terms of cost, more specifically the cost of skin tightening depends on the problem and subsequently the scope of the procedure.

For someone who suffers from severe acne scars all over the face, the cost of their procedure could be more than someone who comes in to reduce some minor fine lines.
