What is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?

Over time, the elasticity of your skin can loosen and change. Experiences such as childbirth, weight gain, weight loss, or aging can lead to loose skin, stretch marks, and cellulite; all of which can potentially impact your self-image and confidence. In the past, you would have had to consider plastic surgery as a remedy for these skin issues; however, there is now an innovative procedure that can tighten your skin using radio frequency – the Pelleve Laser.

Radiofrequency skin treatments can be used to tighten skin on your face as well as other targeted body parts. To learn more about this procedure, read on or contact Dr. Vanderloos directly to see how the Pelleve Laser can improve the quality of your skin.

How the Pelleve Laser Works

RF skin tightening is a safe, non-invasive treatment that uses radio frequency waves to penetrate the layers of your skin. The heat generated by the radio waves can stimulate your skin to produce more collagen, thus smoothing and lifting your skin to turn back the clock. Because it does not involve surgery, this skin tightening procedure can be less expensive and less painful than other options. In addition, it causes less downtime allowing you to return to normal activities with few side effects after your treatment. Another advantage to this treatment, over surgical methods, is that it does not cause scarring or involve any needles.

Here are some of the skin issues that can be remedied with tightening skin with radio frequency waves:

  • Fine lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin
  • Forehead lines
  • Smile lines, wrinkles around the mouth, and smoker’s lines
  • Cellulite on buttocks and thighs

How to Prepare

You can have radio frequency epidermis tightening performed in-office; with each session taking no longer than an hour. You do not need to do anything special before your appointment other than removing makeup or lotion from your skin. A numbing cream may be used to prevent discomfort during your treatment. Afterward, you may experience mild swelling, redness, or sensitivity, but it should resolve quickly. You may need several sessions of radio frequency to get optimal results and any changes may be gradual as your skin tissue heals and responds.
