How does radiofrequency skin tightening work?
A good way to tighten the skin without injections or cutting is Radiofrequency (RF). Radiofrequency is a form of energy used to tighten the skin. It works by generating heat in the deeper layers of the skin. The heat causes the collagen fibers to contract and the skin to tighten. In addition, it stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, making the skin firmer and more elastic.
During the treatment, a device is used that emits radio frequency energy to the skin. The practitioner moves the device over the skin, releasing the energy into the skin. This provides a pleasant warmth that penetrates deep into the skin. The temperature can vary depending on the purpose of the treatment and the area being treated, but is usually between 38 and 42 degrees Celsius. This temperature is high enough to contract the collagen fibers and stimulate the production of new collagen, but not so high that it damages the skin. This leads to a tightening and rejuvenation of the skin.
What can you expect during treatment?
Prior to the treatment, the practitioner will cleanse and numb the skin with a cream. The device is then moved over the skin, delivering radio frequency energy into the skin. The treatment takes an average of 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the area to be treated.
During the treatment, a warm sensation can be experienced, similar to the feeling of a warm massage. After the treatment, the skin may be red and slightly swollen, but this usually disappears within a few hours. The result is already visible immediately after the treatment, but the final result is only achieved after a few months, because it takes time for new collagen to be produced.
