What is RF Skin Tightening

Viora Reaction™ Skin Tightening procedure at SkinHealth Centers utilizes RF (radio frequency) energy to stimulate existing collagen and elastin fibers, enhancing collagen secretion and improving skin’s elasticity. While traditional microneedling has been utilized for more than 25 years, this latest innovative procedure incorporates radiofrequency energy to aid the rejuvenation process. This modern approach is highly safe and effective for treating signs of early aging or skin tissue scarring. Using proprietary CORE™ technology and an advanced skin cooling mechanism, the applied RF energy stimulates fibroblasts (cells that contribute to the formation of connective tissue) in the dermis to improve the skin’s elasticity, enhancing the look of your skin towards a smooth, youthful appearance. After the first treatment, you’ll immediately notice smoother contours and an overall improvement in skin texture and laxity.


What are the benefits of RF Skin Tightening

RF Skin Tightening can be completed on almost any area of the body with wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring, offering incredible benefits. We find the best way to experience advantages include RF on the: 

  • Full face
  • Lower face and marionette lines
  • Upper face and forehead
  • Eyes
  • Neck

When performed on these specific areas, our patients notice fantastic benefits of the procedure, such as:

  • More even skin tone with decreased hyperpigmentation.
  • Brighter, more youthful-looking skin.
  • Smaller, tighter pores.
  • Reduced visibility of acne scarring and other scars.
  • Improved skin texture.

Who are the best candidates for RF Skin Tightening

The best candidates for RF Skin Tightening in Boston can be almost anyone, which is one of the many fantastic things about this treatment. It’s safe for all ages, genders, skin types, and tones and can help people looking for resolutions to skin tightening and resurfacing to treat wrinkles, lip lines, acne scars, other depressed scars, and stretch marks, and it can be used regardless of skin type.

What to expect on the day of RF Skin Tightening

When you arrive for your RRF Skin Tightening, our first goal is to have you feeling as comfortable and confident as possible. A healthy mindset produces the finest results. During treatment, you will experience dual sensations of hot and cold temperatures on the surface of your skin. The integrated skin cooling mechanism ensures that the temperature of your skin is maintained throughout the treatment duration. The procedure is selectively applied to underlying layers of skin to treat scars and tighten tissue to reduce wrinkles and create a smoother, more youthful appearance while improving texture and firmness. Needle penetration depth and the amount of RF energy can also be modified specifically to make sure you attain the most optimal results. 

The procedure takes about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the areas being treated


What’s the first Step?

The first step in aesthetic procedures can often feel like the most difficult; we assure you that at SkinHealth Centers, it’s the easiest. Contact us at one of our premier locations in Boston or Wellesley Hills to schedule a consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with one of our certified technicians and discuss any questions you may have. One of our skilled technicians will provide an evaluation of your skin and inquire about your medical history. Then, together, we will put together an RF Skin Tightening treatment plan that will best serve your personal and physical goals. If you agree with the treatment plan, we can start your RF immediately following your consultation. If you need some additional time, you can always schedule an appointment for a future date and time with our Patient Coordinator.


RF Skin Tightening Recovery

After the first treatment, you’ll immediately notice smoother contours and an overall improvement in skin texture and laxity. Minimal downtime is required, and you can expect only minor side effects, including a degree of discomfort, redness, or irritation. These should be mild and shouldn’t persist for more than 24 hours. 

Patients report beginning to see significant results after three to six months. These stunning results should last about a year. To maintain desired effects, it’s recommended to have a touch-up session at least once a year.
