What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening and How Does It Work?
Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, or radiofrequency skin tightening, is a non surgical method of revealing a more youthful look by tightening the skin. The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of the dermis, and remodeling the collagen fibers, causing the stimulation of collagen production.
As you age, our skin cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles, something called “skin laxity” which happens when the quantity and quality of your collagen begins to decline.
The technology integrates “next generation” focused Radiofrequency (RF) and Microablative RF needling to deliver practical, highly customizable treatments for positive, natural, long-lasting results.
What Are the Advantages to Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
The vShape Ultra gives providers the ability to control the precise depth of energy penetration with focused heating, meaning providers can target specific areas at the particular depth for optimal results.
Focused treatment at multiple depths allows for greater treatment control and maximized results. The vShape Ultra features Dialectric Heating, a unique mechanism whereby concentrated radiofrequency energy is transmitted to the skin tissue causing a rapid rotation of water molecules at 40.68 MHz, the heat and friction of which causes a volumetric contraction that helps to tighten and shape large areas of the body safely and nonsurgically.
Multiple technologies and treatment options help treat a number of skin problems with maximized results.
Treatments with the Alma vShape are safe and effective for all skin types (I-VI) as well as for thin and delicate areas of the face, neck, and décolleté.
Focused Concentrated Energy allows for focused, safe and deep heating of tissue at various penetration depths.
The system uses gradual heating and an integrated cooling system to prevent pain, which means comfortable treatments every time. The single electrode machine delivers concentrated RF energy that reaches deep into the skin layers, but you won’t feel anything, and anesthesia and numbing agents are unnecessary.
Enjoy the freedom of returning to normal activities immediately after your treatment. Manhattan Microneedling’s Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is noninvasive that you can walk right out of our office the same day and enjoy life.
Which Problem Areas Does Radio Frequency Skin Help Fix?
Wrinkles & Rhytids
Treating wrinkles and rhytids with RF is a wonderful option for those seeking non surgical results for the beginning and advanced stages of aging.
RF can treat large areas of skin, meaning that cellulite can be targeted and treated in the same day, comfortably and with zero downtime.
Even your uneven skin texture can be smoothed out and balanced using focused microplasma RF technology.
The global demand for skin tightening, body contouring, and anti-aging is growing each year so is the need for cutting-edge, noninvasive technology, like radiofrequency skin tightening.
RF Skin tightening sessions for the face usually require between four to eight treatments every two weeks. Collagen remodeling takes three months to occur, so you will notice continuous improvements even after you’ve completed your treatment series.
There is no discomfort with RF, patients describe it as a warm massage. Slight redness is common after the treatment. At Manhattan Microneedling, we use our Biocellulose Recovery Mask after your treatment, to minimize redness and help you relax.
RF Skin tightening for the body usually requires anywhere from eight to 12 sessions, depending on what you wish to achieve. Improvements continue to occur over time. There is no discomfort with your sessions, patients describe it as relaxing. After your RF session, we use a lymphatic drainage massage to the treated area, to speed up the release of toxins and fat build up.
