There are plenty of topical products that promise to firm and tighten the appearance of facial and body skin, but when you want to see real change in the mirror, most experts agree that radiofrequency (RF) energy is the best way to go. RF energy heats the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing it to contract and to also create more collagen naturally. Collagen is one of the building blocks of healthy, youthful skin that dwindles with advancing age.Radio Frequency Skin Tightening provides a unique option that produces dramatic results, (RF) Skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Radio Frequency skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses a bipolar, monopolar or unipolar (RF) energy to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Facial skin tightening is noticeable immediately after the treatment, and there is no downtime, making this an increasingly popular procedure. Additional skin tightening occurs over the next few months, but optimal results usually require six to eight treatments about 7 to 10 days apart.
Radio Frequency skin tightening is an FDA approved method for the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. While (RF) skin tightening results may not be as dramatic as those of a face lift, patients enjoy moderate results with no downtime. An added benefit of (RF) skin tightening is that it is safe and effective for restoring a more firm, youthful appearance to skin all over the body.
Skin tightening treatments also encourages the growth of new collagen in the treated areas and promotes the absorption of more collagen from surrounding, untreated areas. With the regeneration of natural collagen, (RF) skin tightening patients immediately begin to notice smoother, softer skin and a more youthful appearance. The effects continue to improve over the next few months following (RF) skin tightening treatment, as the skin’s natural stores of collagen are gradually replenished.
After using this treatment to treat loose skin and wrinkles on your body, you can expect the treatment to last for a few years. With more treatments performed, more collagen is built up and stimulated and this will leave relatively long-lasting effects on your body. It’s important to follow the treatment interval guidelines and post care to get optimal results.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening can be used on your face, arms, hands, abdomen and legs. Usually four to six treatment sessions at an interval of 7-10 days can produce visible results. The treatment intervals are dependant on area and progression of wrinkles and laxity.

Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction occur because the radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form, along with the increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibers. The active collagen in the skin contracts, achieving a tighter appearance, along with softening of wrinkles and fine lines.
