Radiofrequency for cellulite and skin tightening
How wonderful it would be to have youthful, firm skin again! If you wake up in the morning and see fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin that weren’t there before, you’re noticing the signs of aging.
Luckily, there are certain ways to make the clock slow down just a bit and help you get the tighter, smoother skin you dream of. Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening is one such option.
Radiofrequency skin tightening is a non-surgical treatment that can tighten up loose skin, reducing wrinkles, sags and cellulite.
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening uses an electrical current. The current in this type of treatment is similar to things you use every day — like wifi and the microwave — and it’s very safe.
So how do those radiofrequency waves make it happen? RF skin tightening is all about collagen.
When you get medical radiofrequency treatment, the energy from the electrical current heats your skin.
The careful heating of this deep layer of skin does two things: it tightens up the collagen fibers you already have (which means your skin tightens), and it stimulates your cells to produce new collagen, which gives you tighter, firmer skin down the road.
Collagen is crucial for glowing, youthful-looking skin because it’s one of the proteins in your skin that helps keep it strong, full, and wrinkle-free.
After the age of 20, you produce 1% less collagen with each passing year. As a result, your skin begins to lose strength and shape and can’t repair itself as well. And that’s when wrinkles and sags gradually make an appearance.
Radiofrequency is not a painful procedure, and the only thing you’ll notice is a warm feeling as your skin heats up. The whole treatment usually takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on what part of your body you’re treating.
Azani Medical Spa uses the latest and best medical device on the market for Radiofrequency treatments: the NuEra machine by Lumenis.
RF skin tightening can be done just about anywhere you have unwanted wrinkles and sags. Women often want to do away with facial wrinkles, but you can also treat your stomach, arms, or legs and get rid of cellulite.
It takes anywhere from 3 to 6 treatments about 1-2 weeks apart, and full results take about 12 weeks.
