Radio frequency is the new technology for skin tightening treatments. RF is designed to treat loose and sagging skin, energizing, toning and strengthening the muscles and skin.
At River City Cosmetic Medicine Clinic we use Unipolar and Bi-Polar Radio Frequency technology to tighten both very superficial layer of the skin as well as sub-dermal skin layer. The result is a stimulation of elastin production and new elastin synthesis and subsequently skin tightening /shrinkage. RF also in conjunction with collagen synthesis provides nice skin lifting.
Loose skin will be firmer, more toned, healthier and younger looking. Results are noticeable and continuously improve for weeks to come. Radio Frequency can be a stand-alone treatment, or can be used in combination with the other procedures.
a.) Radio Frequency and E-Light IPL works in synergy creating clear, smoother and tighter skin, long term mild-superficial wrinkle reduction and ease anti-ageing.
b.) Radio Frequency following Lipodissolve significantly improves skin smoothness, and prevents irregularity related to Fat removal with injections.
c.) Radio Frequency applied after Ultrasound fat reduction (Cavitation) accelerate lymphatic drainage of the fat and improves skin tightness and appearance.
RF treatment takes 15-20 minutes and is designed to provide maximum comfort for the patient. The patient experiences warm- hot sensation while the applicator is moved over the targeted area of loose skin, cellulite or fine lines/wrinkles. Your skin remains slightly red for 15 minutes after the procedure, or sometimes skin is dry for 24-48hours. There is no down-time and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Although some effect is visible after one session, we recommend a series of 4-8 Radio Frequency skin tightening treatments on a weekly basis. New tissue synthesis continues for several weeks after the last treatment.
