Radio-frequency delivers heat to the skin and subcutaneous tissue below. By reaching and maintaining a specific temperature, fat is released from the underlying fat cells and skin tightening is triggered. The treatment also stimulates collagen production through deep heating, which helps rebuild the structural integrity of the skin. Results are seen after the first treatment, with peak results after 6-12 months. Most patients require a series of 6-10 treatments for optimal results, depending on the individual and the area being treated.
The treatment is pain free and any area with skin looseness can be treated. Common treatment areas include the jowl, chin, neck, face, arms, abdomen, hips and thighs. There is no downtime and patients can resume their normal daily routine immediately post treatment.
