Having tight, vibrant or youthful skin above the age of 35 is an instant ego booster and attraction factor for anyone. The people of today do not have to live with wrinkled and sagged skin as their ancestors did because it is the age of cosmetic surgery, laser treatments and radio frequency treatments.
A radio frequency treatment is a non-invasive, not complicated treatment that tightens the skin by being absorbed into the deep layers of the skin without causing any harm to the epidermis. Radio frequency has been used in the past to treat many non-cosmetic surgery related problems such as for pain relief and tumor removal but today it used for cosmetic procedures such as cellulite reduction, skin tightening, defining eyebrows, breast lift, improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, tightening abdomen, cheeks, jowls, neck and melolabial creases.
A radio frequency treatment is a much preferred substitute for a facelift, as it does not involve incisions, sutures and long healing time and shows immediate skin tightening. A radio frequency treatment for skin tightening works best on loose and thin skin. The process takes about one hour and results are seen immediately.
To acquire the best results, repeated treatments of radio frequency are essential. Some frequently asked questions regarding this treatment are the following:
How does radio frequency tighten the skin?
Radio frequency mildly heats up the temperature of the skin and subcutaneous area below the skin. When the warming is maintained for several minutes collagen synthesis begins and over a number of treatments and the skin becomes visibly tightened.
What frequency and time is required for attaining the best results?
Usually, the face and neck require a series of four to six weekly treatments lasting 30 to 45 minutes. Body treatment sessions could be up to 40 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas treated.
When will the results be apparent after the first treatment?
Most clients see tightening, lifting and plumping in the face and neck immediately. For cellulite and fat reduction processes such as underarm flabbiness and sagging, immediate results can be seen as well.
How long will the results last after treatment?
The results of radio frequency treatment are long lasting but most professionals suggest repeated treatments every 3 to 4 months. Following a healthy diet, doing facial exercises and avoiding fatty foods can also help prolong the results.
A radio frequency treatment is highly opted by celebrities, VIPS and ordinary people alike due to its non-complicated and quick result nature.
