About Radiofrequency Skin Tightening

As you age, the quantity and quality of collagen fibers in your skin decline. The natural aging process, in conjunction with other factors such as the environment (sun, wind, pollution), can result in lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin. Radiofrequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layer of the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.

1. What is radiofrequency skin tightening?

Radiofrequency skin tightening assists in repairing skin that has lost elasticity due to aging, weight loss, environmental factors, or childbirth. Radiofrequency treatment is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment for skin laxity. The skin becomes firmer and more even as a result of the heating effects of radiofrequency energy and stimulation of subdermal collagen. Radiofrequency skin treatment can be applied to any part of the body, but it is most commonly used on the face, neck, and abdomen.

2. Am I a good candidate for radiofrequency skin tightening?

Radiofrequency skin tightening is ideal for individuals who have moderate skin aging but do not want to undergo a surgical procedure. Individuals who may benefit from this procedure include, but are not limited to, those who have the following conditions:

  • Sagging
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne Scars
  • Cellulite
  • Stretch marks
  • Loss of volume

3. How does radiofrequency skin tightening work?

Radiofrequency skin tightening uses therapeutic radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. The radiofrequency energy is applied to multiple layers of skin at the same time, stimulating the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. This causes the skin to tighten, making it more elastic and youthful. This radiofrequency energy is delivered via various handpieces that are specifically designed for face and body treatment areas.

4. How long does radiofrequency skin tightening take to perform?

Radiofrequency skin tightening can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to complete, depending on the complexity of your procedure.

5. What is recovery like after radiofrequency skin tightening?

Following treatment, patients may experience some redness and swelling, but this will naturally subside within a few days. Typically, recovery is minimal with little to no downtime after radiofrequency skin tightening, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately.

6. How soon will I see results?

Patients usually notice gradual improvements within one to four weeks. The skin will be tighter, and wrinkles and looseness will be reduced. Each treatment is cumulative; the number and frequency of treatments will influence the final outcome of skin laxity.

7. How much does radiofrequency skin tightening cost in Canada?

The cost of radiofrequency skin tightening varies according to the location and size of the treated area, as well as the number of treatments. In Canada, the average cost of radio frequency skin tightening ranges from $495 to $4,450.
