Radio-Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio-Frequency Skin Tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to heat tissue and stimulate sub dermal collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and loose skin.
The process provides an alternative to face-lifts and other cosmetic surgeries. RF treatment also causes apoptosis of fat cells, which leads to fat layer reduction in the treated area.
By manipulating skin cooling during treatment, RF can also be used for the heating and reduction of fat. Currently, the most common uses of RF-based devices is to allow a non-invasive way to manage and treat lax skin, sagging jowls, abdomen, thighs and arms, as well as remove wrinkles, cellulite improvement and body contouring.
