Non-surgical skin tightening is a non-invasive aesthetic procedure that uses radio frequency or RF energy to correct laxity and improve skin’s overall appearance. It works by heating the deep layers of the skin, causing the collagen and elastin to become inflamed. The body reacts to the process by forming new collagen and elastin, which effectively firms up or tones the skin.
Who Should Undergo and Expected Results
Non-surgical skin tightening is recommended for those with loose or sagging skin particularly on the face, neck and chin, arms, thighs, and abdominal area. As a less conservative method, the procedure works best for mild to moderate cases of skin laxity and for those who seek a noninvasive alternative toface-lift,liposuction, and tummy tuck. Individuals with residual skin laxity following a surgical procedure are also candidates for this aesthetic treatment.
Non-surgical skin tightening can be expected to effectively tighten up loose skin and eliminate sagging, leading to a general improvement in the quality and appearance of the skin. It can also eliminate wrinkling and achieve instant visible results that can further improve over an extended period.
