Most individuals experience facial aging at some point in their lives. While many patients look into plastic surgery to correct imperfections like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, there are those who desire an alternative solution that is less invasive.
At Renove Med Spa, we offer state of the art treatments like the Pixel 8 Radio Frequency Skin Tightening, to rejuvenate the face and provide you with a youthful and attractive appearance.
What is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?
Radiofrequency skin tightening is a technique used to tighten sagging and thinning skin with minimal pain, downtime and expense with fantastic results, noticeable within a few weeks after the first treatment.
Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments use small micro needles to deliver a form of heat energy, or radiofrequency, past the top layer of skin, deeper into the skin tissues. This causes a micro-injury to the skin, sending a message to the skin to heal and repair itself, without negatively impacting the outward appearance of the skin. This procedure also triggers fibroplasia, the process in which the body forms new fibrous tissue and stimulates the production of collagen, causing collagen fibers to become shorter and more tense. At the same time, the molecules that make up collagen are left undamaged. Skin elasticity increases and loose, sagging skin is tightened.
What Can I Expect During a Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Treatment?
Prior to your treatment, your skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied and allowed to take effect for 20 minutes. Once you are ready for the treatment, you will be placed in a comfortable reclined position and the treatment will proceed area by area. A full facial treatment takes 25 minutes. You can watch a video of Dr. Michelle Parsons performing a treatment on her website. There should be minimal discomfort with the treatment, as the energy levels are adjustable for all skin types. As the treatment proceeds, you will feel as if you have a moderate sunburn. Cool air is used for comfort during the treatment, which is typically not needed upon completion of the treatment. Prior to leaving, a hydrating cream and sunscreen will be applied to your skin. Makeup can be applied after 12 hours.
When Will I see Results from Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?
Immediately following the treatment, most people will feel as if they had a windburn or mild sunburn. There can be mild swelling after the treatment, but not everyone has swelling. Skin tightening and softening of visible lines and wrinkles can be seen as soon as 4 weeks after the treatment, and will continue to improve and tighten the skin for 3 to 6 months following the treatment. It is recommended to receive 3 to 5 treatments over the course of a year, typically spread apart by four weeks. There are discounts for package treatments. Since the improvement of skin tone, texture, is from your natural healing of your skin, results are long lasting andiIn general, and with proper skin care, results last years.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Radiofrequency
Radiofrequency treatments are most commonly performed on facial and neck skin. It is exceptionally beneficial around the eyes, to treat loose sagging eye skin, and around the mouth, to improve lip lines. It is also common to treat the chest and hands. We also treat sagging knee skin, stretch marks, surgical scars and acne scars.
