Collagen provides a structure or framework that allows new skin cells to form around it. This helps to provide “definition” to the face. As we get older, our body’s natural production of this substance begins to slow down, resulting in sagging or loose skin. This skin laxity can cause someone to look older than their actual age. If these changes start to become bothersome, there are non-surgical skin tightening treatments available that can help tighten your skin and give you a more healthy and youthful appearance.
A Look at Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Treatments
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a very effective way to tighten the skin in a non-surgical manner. The heat produced by the RF energy ultimately stimulates collagen production in the treated area, subtly remodeling and improving the skin over time. Since the RF energy is non-ablative, there is no harm to your skin during the treatment.
What are the Benefits?
You should notice fewer lines and wrinkles in the treated region due to the skin tightening process. Another benefit of RF skin tightening is that there is little to no downtime. This makes the treatment extremely convenient for people with busy schedules and lifestyles. After your treatment session, you can return to work or your everyday activities immediately.
Will I Need Multiple Treatment Sessions?
You should notice some immediate improvements that continue to build over the following weeks. However, for optimal results, you may require a series of treatment sessions. Dr. Hartman will discuss your aesthetic goals during your consultation and together you will develop your treatment plan.
