Skin Tightening Device
What Is RF Skin Tightening?
Radio frequency skin tightening machines may look and sound like something out of a Sci-fi movie, but these innovative skincare devices are great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. They also, as the name suggests, help to tighten skin, which can help contour certain areas of your body and face.
All of these great results can be achieved with a simple, easy to use, at-home skin care device.
Keep reading to learn more about what radio frequency skin tightening machines are, the pros and cons of using an at-home device, and how to choose the best one for you. We also included our list of the top 5 radio frequency skin tightening devices on the market.
What is a Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Machine?
Radio frequency (RF) skin tightening machines use an effective, non-invasive technique to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. They help to rejuvenate your skin by improving the underlying structure. RF skin tightening machines have also been used to diminish cellulite and other fat deposits.
These treatments work best on areas of loose and lax skin that do not have a lot of muscle, such as under the chin and neck area.
These treatments can be performed with little to no recovery time as they do not involve surgery, lasers, or other invasive methods. This makes it a great alternative for those who want to try out cosmetic treatments, without having to “go under the knife”.
How does the device work?
The device generates heat to the dermis level of the skin. Radio frequency is more effective than using skincare products such as creams and serums.
The heat causes minor localised injuries in the collagen-filled dermis. These concentrated injuries stimulate your body’s natural healing process and do not cause any severe or permanent damage. It is perfectly safe and painless.
Due to the lack of damage to the outer layer of your skin, the side effects of this treatment are highly decreased.
Collagen is a fibrous protein that is a necessary part of the skin’s structure. It helps to add volume to the face and body, filling in wrinkles and fine lines. This helps to give a more youthful appearance. Collagen also aids in the production of hyaluronic acid and elastin. Hyaluronic acid keeps our skin moisturised, while elastin is responsible for how firm and tight skin is.
As we age, our collagen and elastin production begins to slow down. Treatments help rejuvenating a youthful complexion, hence RF skin tightening is so popular.
For those that are younger and are looking for preventative treatments, you still may want to consider using an RF skin tightening device. Continued healthy collagen production from a young age can slow down the aging process.
It is much easier to maintain healthy, youthful skin than trying to reverse the effects of aging later. (Using our RF skin tightening device is also much less painful than preventative Botox!)
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
It takes some time to see results due to it working with your body’s natural process of producing collagen and elastin. Treatments will show results within four weeks and have the potential to last two years.
Another factor is the number of times you use your device each week. Keeping up with your treatments, as the device you are using suggests, will also affect your results.
