Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Q & A
What is radiofrequency skin tightening?
Radiofrequency skin tightening is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that improves the appearance of your skin, giving you a younger look without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime. Dr. Gartner uses the multiplatform vShape Ultra to enhance your natural beauty.
The advanced aesthetic tool can improve a number of aesthetic concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
The radiofrequency skin tightening tool also improves the appearance of cellulite, and when combined with ultrasound fat reduction, can get rid of stubborn pockets of fat while tightening your skin at the same time.
How does radiofrequency skin tightening work?
The energy generated by vShape Ultra causes the cells in your skin to shrink, which tightens the skin for a smoother appearance. The energy also stimulates your body to produce more collagen, which is the protein found in your skin that provides strength and elasticity, revitalizing your skin and your look from the inside out.
What can I expect during treatment?
You may feel a tingling sensation during radiofrequency skin tightening, but most people find the treatment itself relaxing, almost like a warm massage. You may need up to 10 treatments set at two-week intervals to get the best results. Dr. Gartner determines your personalized treatment plan after a consultation and a discussion of your desired results.
How long does it take to see the results?
With radiofrequency skin tightening, you may notice an improvement in your look immediately following treatment. And thanks to the actions of the radiofrequency energy, your skin continues to improve for up to six months after your last session.
While Dr. Gartner can improve your look with radiofrequency skin tightening, she can’t stop the aging process. To help maintain your youthful look, she recommends you take precaution when in the sun by using sunblock daily and covering up with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses if you plan on being outside for an extended period of time.
Dr. Gartner also offers maintenance treatments every six to 12 months to help keep you looking and feeling your best.
