What is RF Skin Tightening?
When you're born, your body has ample stores of nutrients (collagen and elastic) that keep your complexion looking smooth, feeling supple, and glowing youthfully. As your body's natural supply of collagen and elastin deplete, your skin begins to change by accumulating wrinkles, sagging, a lack of firmness, and becoming more uneven in tone and texture. If you've noticed these changes and want to restore the radiance and suppleness of your skin, our team at Integrative Pain and Wellness Center in Southlake, TX performs radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening utilizing the Accent Prime. RF energy and mechanical massage increase metabolism of adipose tissue-reducing fat cell volume, stimulating lymphatic drainage and visibly smoothing the texture of the skin. With this device, we are able to encourage the production of collagen and elastin in your skin to produce a firmer, healthier complexion. During your consultation, a member of our team will meet with you to learn all about your concerns and goals and determine if RF skin tightening is the right solution for you.
"We have had a great experience with Dr. Barker! Our newborn had a tongue and lip tie revised, and Dr. Barker worked with her to relieve restrictions. In three sessions, she has gone from a poor sleeper in constant discomfort to a happy, relaxed baby. He helped loosen up her tongue restrictions and she is nursing much better (and my pain is gone)! I highly recommend Dr. Barker."- K.P. / Google / Jun 24, 2020
"Dr. Barker has helped me turn my health around without the use of harmful medications. I was diagnosed with RA and didn't want to take the meds with horrible side effects. He has helped get my RA under control, I am off my cholesterol and blood pressure meds. He has helped with hormone treatment which has improved my life tremendously. And at the young age of 60 I feel fabulous thanks to Dr. Barker."- C.F. / Google / Feb 05, 2020
"Dr. Barker is a very friendly, thorough, and talented provider. I’m very satisfied with the pain relief I’ve experienced from his treatments."- L.C. / Google / Jan 05, 2020
"I brought my 3 month old son in to see Dr.Barker and I am ecstatic over how great he was with my son. He was very professional and informative. Since I had my baby he has been very uncomfortable with being in a car seat and I’m almost immune to him screaming when I put him in. Today was the first time that I put him in and he did not cry and actually fell asleep. I could cry from happiness. Thank you Dr. Barker!!!"- J.H. / Google / Nov 22, 2021

Who Makes A Great Candidate For Treatment?
RF skin tightening may be performed on many areas of the face and body, such as the abs, under the chin, inner/outer thighs, and upper arms. The best patients for this procedure are those who:
- Are in good general health
- Are maintaining a stable weight
- Have mild or moderate skin looseness
- Exhibit signs of aging on their face or body
- Want to enhance the firmness and aesthetics of their skin
How RF Skin Tightening Works
Before your session begins, the areas to be treated will be sanitized to eliminate any makeup, dirt, or oil. The majority of patients find that this treatment is relatively comfortable. As soon as you are ready, the Accent Prime handpiece will be evenly passed over the skin multiple times for the most effective outcome. The energy emulating from the device stimulates the body to tighten and firm the skin. A session may take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After the therapy is complete, you'll be allowed to leave and resume your normal routine.
RF skin tightening FAQs
How long do results last for RF skin tightening?
Results from RF skin tightening tend to last a long time. In most cases, men and women can enjoy their new outcomes for years. This is because RF technology can stimulate new collagen production, which helps maintain tighter and smoother skin. Patients should continue to protect themselves from UV rays and use sunscreen to extend their results.
How many treatments should I get?
Generally speaking, the more treatments you receive, the better results you will have. Results begin to be noticeable after several appointments and typically continue to improve with each session. Integrative Pain and Wellness Center can make custom recommendations for RF skin tightening based on your skin elasticity and cosmetic goals.
Should I get RF skin tightening or surgery?
RF skin tightening heats the underlying tissue to increase collagen and improve the elasticity of the skin for long-term results. This technique saves patients from invasive surgery and weeks in recovery. The results are also far more natural-looking than what surgery can offer. You may want to consider plastic surgery if you have severely loose or excess skin.
