RADIOFREQUENCY: THE ULTIMATE SKIN TIGHTENING / ANTI-CELLULITE TECHNOLOGY
Radiofrequency is widely accepted as being the most effective cellulite reduction and skin tightening technology available today, for both face and body. It is far superior to lasers, which do not penetrate anywhere near as deep as radiofrequency does.
By applying intensive heat on collagen and fat cells, radiofrequency helps increase skin tightness and reduce fat, thereby improving the contour and texture of body and face.
If you have sagging skin, there are a few things you can try before you resort to plastic surgery. Creams may give you a little lift. Derma-rolling may achieve better results. Radiofrequency skin tightening is probably the best non-invasive option you have.
- How Does Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Work?
Radiofrequency skin tightening uses an electrical current to heat up layers of skin tissue and cause new growth of collagen. Collagen helps your skin look and feel firmer and younger.
- How Safe Is RF?
High-frequency RF is safer than a laser and derma-rolling because it doesn’t cause as much tissue damage. It doesn’t do anything to the melanin or pigment in your skin, so anyone with any skin tone can use it.
- How Often Will I Need Treatments?
You can get the treatment done once a month on a single body part.
- What to Expect During an RF Skin Tightening Treatment
Your skin care specialist may ask that you wash your face with a mild soap and warm water before you arrive for your treatment, as it is important that no excess oils or cosmetics remain on the skin that might reduce the effectiveness of the procedure. When treatment begins, a numbing cream will be applied to the skin and then allowed to sit until it takes effect. It will then be removed, and the skin care specialist will target the treatment area with an ink grid transfer so that the treatment is focused and that no other skin is accidentally affected.
A gliding gel will then be applied to the skin before the RF waves are delivered to the skin. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, you may feel a heated sensation during treatment, but the side effects of the treatment are believed to be minimal for most patients. When the treatment is over, the skin care specialist will apply a topical cooling gel to the treated area to minimize discomfort.
- Does Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Work for Everyone?
It will work better on some people than others, and on some areas of the body more than others. Flabby parts respond better than places with muscle, but if it’s bad enough that a person needs a facelift then RF therapy may have to be repeated to keep the skin looking firm.

Excessive red and swollen: After treatment the nose skin easily becomes red and swollen, and the swollen skin usually goes down in 3~7days.
Some dry decrepit skin easily shrink after the first treatment, even slightly pits, because the heat energy of radio frequency wave may lead water runoff of the skin, but at the prime of collagen regeneration the skin will become plump, normally at the third day you can find the change of skin
