What is RF Skin Tightening?

ProcedureWhen 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.

What Are The Benefits Of RF Skin Tightening?

An RF skin tightening treatment plan using the Accent Prime platform can produce dramatic results to refresh and rejuvenate your look with benefits that include:

  • Tightening loose, sagging skin
  • Creating a more youthful appearance
  • Stimulating collagen and elastin production
  • Improving the contour of the face and body
  • Boosting skin health
  • Enhancing skin texture
  • Offering treatment for multiple body areas
  • Pairing with other treatments for expanded results
  • Quick, pain-free procedure
  • No downtime
  • No scarring

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.

How Long Is Recovery After RF Skin Tightening?

Following your treatment, the targeted skin may appear pink or irritated, and the skin may feel numb. However, any swelling should fade within a few days. When you have your consultation at Integrative Pain and Wellness Center, Dr. Barker or a member of his team will give instructions on the best techniques to preserve your skin after your session and achieve optimal results. As you heal, remember to use moisturizer and protect your skin from the sun. While some can see results after their first session, most individuals won’t notice outcomes immediately after their treatment. Since the production of collagen and elastin can take time, you will see your best outcomes in the next few months. Outcomes following RF skin tightening generally remain in place for many years.

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.

Can I wear makeup immediately after RF skin tightening treatments?
It is generally recommended to wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup after an RF skin tightening treatment. This allows your skin enough time to recover and reduces the risk of irritation or clogging pores. Our team will provide you with specific aftercare instructions, including when it's safe to resume the use of makeup and skincare products.

How long does it take to see results from RF skin tightening, and how long do they last?
Results from RF skin tightening can vary from person to person. Some may notice an immediate improvement in their skin's tightness and texture, while for others, the full effects may develop gradually over several months as collagen production increases. The results can last up to two years, depending on your skin condition, age, lifestyle, and how well you follow post-treatment care instructions.

Is there anyone who should avoid RF skin tightening?
RF skin tightening is safe for most people, but some contraindications exist. Individuals with electronic devices, such as pacemakers, pregnant women, and those with certain skin conditions or infections in the treatment area, should avoid this procedure. During your consultation, it's important to disclose your complete medical history, including any underlying conditions and medications, to determine if RF skin tightening is appropriate for you.
