Remodeling Is Not a Model Secret Anymore if You Have Access to Morpheus8May 11, 2022
Over time, your skin gradually begins to show signs of aging. It’s normal for skin to become suppler as collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for the skin’s firmness, begin to break down. Your hands, neck, and face will appear wrinkled and saggy as a result.
There are various anti-aging treatments available to improve the appearance of aging skin. Dermal fillers can temporarily diminish the look of wrinkles. Plastic surgery is also an option, but it is costly and the recovery process can be lengthy.
If you’re looking for an alternative to fillers, but don’t want to commit to serious surgery, you may want to consider radio-frequency (RF) treatments. In the present article, we are going to discuss the benefits and results of this skin tightening treatment in detail; as such, we encourage you to read it all the way through. You can always contact us for additional information about RF or to schedule a consultation session with our professional team.
What is Radio-Frequency Skin Treatment?
Radio-Frequency Skin Treatment, often known as Radio-Frequency skin tightening, is a minimally invasive skin tightening technique. This procedure is a safe and effective way to reverse the signs of aging on various areas of the body, including the face and neck. It can also help with sagging skin around the abdomen or the upper arms.
RF therapy includes heating the dermis, the deeper layer of your skin, with energy waves. This heat increases collagen production. Collagen is a vital protein found in the human body. It forms the structure of your skin and imparts solidity to it.
As you get older, your cells produce less collagen, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin laxity develops between the ages of 35 and 40, when the quantity and quality of collagen begin to decline.
Radio-Frequency Skin Treatment is utilized to combat drooping skin and symptoms of aging. Certain physicians also offer this method for body sculpting.
The benefits of RF treatment
The primary goals of RF therapy are skin tightening and wrinkle removal. However, due to its capacity to stimulate the production of collagen and Elastin, radio-frequency treatment may also help fight sun damage.
RF’s lower frequency can safely reach deeper layers of the skin, and aid in tightening and lifting the tissues as well. Needless to say, the safety and efficacy of this non-surgical procedure depends on the practitioner’s experience and skill.
The benefits of radio frequency therapy include, but are not limited to:
- Repairing sun damage
UV exposure can cause the collagen fibers in your skin to degrade and become disordered. According to studies, 3 months of Radio-Frequency treatment results in clinically significant improvements in people with mild to moderate sun damage.
- Facial contouring
Aging causes dullness, sagging, wrinkles, and textural changes in our skin because the cells on the surface (the epidermis) do not renew as quickly as they used to in our youth.
Radio-Frequency solves this problem by tightening the skin while restoring its contours, resulting in toned, firm, and youthful-looking skin. This firming action is ideal for the chin, neck, and jawline. It can also be used to tighten:
- Sagging skin between the nose and the mouth;
- Under- and above the eye bags and wrinkles;
- Drooping brow lines.
- Softening Fine Lines
This treatment also softens fine lines and wrinkles, and helps you look progressively younger.
- Long-lasting results
Certain facial treatments work by stimulating facial muscles or temporarily plumping the tissues; radiofrequency treatment, however, activates the skin’s intrinsic healing processes and collagen production, both of which are fundamentally long-lasting. Your results can last up to two years.
- Treating cellulite
Radio Frequency gently warms up the deeper skin layers, and aids in the breakdown of the fat cells that contribute to cellulite. The lymphatic system then eliminates these cells naturally.
- Instant visible results
RF therapy has an immediate effect on elastin fibers, which means that your skin will seem and feel tighter after just one session.
- Relaxing and pain-free treatment
The non-invasive and gentle nature of RF therapy is one of its most appealing features. This therapy can be performed without causing damage to the top layer of your skin.
- Short procedure
Each session typically lasts between 20 and 45 minutes, and your therapy is unique to you; we adapt the depth and strength of thermal energy to your specific needs.
The best radio-frequency treatments for skin tightening
Tightening the skin with radio frequency energy is the newest trend in medical cosmetic treatments. We provide various types of RF skin tightening treatments to address specific skin issues.
FaceTite is a noninvasive procedure that uses radio frequency energy to treat both beneath and above the surface of the skin. This radio frequency treatment uses RFAL to destroy fat cells, while at the same time stimulating the production of collagen for instantly tighter skin.
Morpheus8 is an excellent Radio-Frequency Skin Treatment for skin laxity. It is a fractionated RF treatment that utilizes micro-needle heads made of gold-plated steel to transmit energy deep into the dermis. The energy is then used to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, which will in turn tighten moderately loose skin.
Fractora is another fractional radio frequency therapy that resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin, addressing uneven skin texture, scarring (including acne scars), and crepiness.
Fractora is a procedure that uses a portable micro-pin device to precisely perforate or ablate the epidermis. Simultaneously, RF energy is applied to heat the skin’s layers and stimulate collagen formation. This method is great for crepey skin and textural irregularities caused by genetics, acne, and collagen deficiency.
Forma transmits radio frequency energy via SMART RF technology and, unlike Fractora and Morpheus8, does not require perforation or ablation. This treatment is a virtually painless procedure with no down-time, perfect for regenerating collagen and elastin, and restoring the tightness of your skin. Forma can be used to improve skin laxity and soften fine lines around the eyes, jowls, nasolabial folds, and neck.
Exilis is a monopolar approach, and its ultrasound technology enables the RF energy to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layer of fat. Additionally, it has the benefit of eliminating micro areas of fat cells.
Before your treatment can begin, you must have a consultation appointment so that one of our expert aestheticians may analyze your skin and assess whether your level of skin laxity qualifies you for a radio frequency treatment.
We will ask you various questions during your consultation about your skincare practices, products you use, and lifestyle factors, such as smoking, that may contribute to premature skin aging, and then recommend the best method for you.
