Your Guide to Radio Frequency Treatment
Radiofrequency Treatment has been gaining its fair share of popularity these days. This non-invasive and non-surgical procedure which tightens the skin is almost like a face lift without the scars, recovery time or need to undergo surgery. The treatment, which is being made popular by celebrities, is one that more and more women are choosing to get done for younger, tighter looking skin. But if you aren’t familiar with Radiofrequency Treatment, you may be wondering what the treatment does, what it entails and any possible side effects that it might have.
How Does Radiofrequency Treatment Work?
Radiofrequency Treatment works by giving off radiofrequency waves, which are sources of energy that, along with other types of energy, such as radio waves, TV waves, and even wifi signals, are found on the electromagnetic spectrum. These waves, which usually are on the slower side of radio frequency waves, are a gentle form of RF wave that work to tighten the skin due to the small amount of heat that it emits. The waves can get down into the skin’s inner layers and promote cell regeneration, collagen production and even tighter skin.
Is Radiofrequency Treatment Safe?
Radiofrequency Treatment for tighter, more youthful looking skin is considered safe. As long as you choose a provider who is experienced and cautious, you will be in good hands for your treatments. The procedure, including the RF waves you’re exposed to are controlled, meaning you will be given the safest possible dose of RF during the skin tightening treatment.
Side Effects of Radiofrequency Treatment
Radiofrequency Treatment is relatively pain-free. Side effects of Radiofrequency Treatment for skin tightening are usually very mild and may include the following:
- Swelling that goes away quickly
What Should I Expect During the Procedure?
When going into the office to talk about Radiofrequency Treatment, you may have a lot of questions about the procedure. Talking about what to expect during the procedure, as well as whether or not you will make a good candidate for the procedure, are the first steps in getting the treatment for yourself.
Once determined that Radiofrequency Treatment would benefit your skin, you will simply lie down, and the RF operator will use the device to move it over the area to elevate skin temperature and bring about results. The entire procedure usually takes between ten minutes to an hour and feels like a massage using hot stones. Follow-up or maintenance procedures are important for lasting results.
