Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also known as radiofrequency skin tightening, is a non-invasive procedure that helps to tighten your skin and create a more youthful appearance. The procedure uses energy waves to heat the layers underneath your skin to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein in the body that gives your skin its elasticity and firmness.
What RF Skin Tightening Treatments are Available?
There are a number of different RF skin tightening treatments available.
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of our skin. It assists in reorganizing the building blocks underneath our skin to help with the anti-aging process.
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas of the skin that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The most common areas treated with Morpheus8 include the face and neck, but areas of the body are also suitable areas. Patients can expect to have between two to four sessions before seeing optimal results.
Vivace™ RF Microneedling
Vivace™ RF Microneedling can be used to tighten the skin in addition to removing acne scars, dealing with fine lines, and treating pigmentation issues. Vivace™ is a microneedling technique that uses a specialized handheld device to create tiny micro-channels in the superficial layers of the skin.
This then allows Vivace™ to deliver advanced RF and LED light therapy to the lower layers of the skin, triggering deep dermal rejuvenation through the body’s self-healing process to produce higher levels of collagen and elastin.
Vivace™ allows for extreme precision and treatments are customized to the patient’s needs. It can take roughly three to four sessions before patients can see optimal results.
