RF skin tightening therapy is a skin tightening and anti-aging treatment. It is a noninvasive and nonsurgical procedure. This treatment can also be used for the reduction of fat in areas like thighs, abdomen and arms.
How Does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Work?
This process makes the use of radio frequency (RF) energy. The RF energy targets the deeper layers of the skin. The energy heats the skin, resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin.
The RF skin tightening procedure also gives rise to the formation of new fibrous tissues and stimulates the production of collagen. This causes the collagen fibers to shorten and become tenser. Thus, the elasticity of the skin improves and the skin gets tightened.
How is the procedure done?
An RF skin tightening machine is used. It is a small handheld tool that is used directly on the skin. The tool sends alternating currents to the deeper layers of your skin.
RF treatments make the use of heat to destruct the tissues that are deep under. However, this does not make any difference to the outer appearance of the skin.
