A: RF stands for radio frequency, a type of energy. Like all forms of energy, RF has the capacity to produce heat. RF skin tightening treatments use this energy to safely penetrate the skin’s deeper layers to induce new collagen and elastin to form.
The end result is firmer, younger-looking skin with improved skin tone and structure. RF skin tightening can be used on the face to tighten up sagging skin or to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It can also be used on the body, for example, on the abdomen, after weight loss or child bearing.
One of the benefits of RF skin tightening is that it can be used safely on all skin tones. The treatments are quick, comfortable and there is no downtime. Usually several treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results.
