With age our cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin, wrinkles and less youthful skin. Furthermore skin laxity is also reduced. Natural ageing can play a large part, as we all age very differently. Other reasons for losing laxity also include illness, rapid weight loss, or lifestyle choices such as excessive sun exposure and smoking.
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening, is a nonsurgical treatment of tightening your skin, which can help sculpt and contour the skin to give the appearance of a more youthful look
RF involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. It helps enhance collagen and elastin production which are key ingredients for healthy looking skin.
At Dr Sobia Medispa, we use Exilis Elite, which is a scientifically proven RF treatment, that also combines Ultrasound energy to tighten skin while reducing fat and signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
HOW DOES RF SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?
RF waves heat the deep layer of your skin to between 122 and 167°F (50–75°C).
Our RF treatment uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and also ultrasound to deliver controlled heating to target deep tissue. The energy penetrated into the skin helps treat deeper wrinkles, sagging skin and jowls, as well as the superficial skin layer and finer lines.
The skin’s surface is gradually heated between 40-42°C for 4 or 5 minutes. Heat penetrates the skin and the energy delivered targets and destroys fats cells. The dead fat is eliminated naturally by the lymphatic system.
Whilst the primary benefits of RF are to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkle, combining ultrasound also destroys fat cells and help contour and shape the body. The treatment also stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. This results in more youthful healthier and radiant looking skin
Virtually any part of the face & body is treatable. Example of treatable areas include:
- Outer and inner
- Jaw line and jowls
- Neck / Chin
- Around the eyes
- Inner and outer arms
HOW MANY TREATMENTS?
Typically 3-6 treatments are required. The treatments are spaced out between 1-2 weeks. There is absolutely no downtime. The treatment is very relaxing and takes as little 10 mins per area treated.
RF therapy helps tighten loose skin on your body by stimulating the production of collagen. This can significantly reduce wrinkles and the texture of the skin. Although Some patients experience results also immediately after the treatment, other start seeing visible improvement after 1 or 2 treatments. The results continue to unfold as collagen builds and laxity improves.
There is no downtime with our RF treatment. Whilst there may be minor redness, this soon settles within a few hours.
