What is radiofrequency therapy for skin tightening?
Radiofrequency therapy for skin tightening is a safe and effective way to naturally smooth out lines and wrinkles and tighten your skin. The radiofrequency energy gently heats the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This restores elasticity to your skin, improving skin tone, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and giving you a more youthful appearance.
At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, we use the Elixis® system to provide you with the best results possible. This cutting-edge technology works by targeting your skin tissue with the optimal temperature for collagen growth, without overheating your delicate skin.
How does radiofrequency therapy work?
Although you see signs of aging on the top layer of your skin, the aging process actually begins below the surface. In the middle layer of your skin, collagen and other proteins work to create new skin cells.
The more collagen your body produces, the more frequently the top layer of skin is replaced. This helps repair any damage and keeps skin tight, smooth, and free of wrinkles.
Unfortunately, as you age, your body naturally makes less collagen. Declining collagen production leads to saggy skin, fine lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, crepey skin, and can make your features look sharper as bones become more prominent.
There’s good news, however. Collagen production works using the domino effect. This means that the more collagen you have in your body, the more your body keeps producing this amazing protein!
Since radiofrequency therapy triggers an increase in collagen production, your body will keep making more of this youth-generating protein. The result? Tighter, younger-looking skin!
Where can I have radiofrequency therapy and what results can I expect?
Our team at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic has experience banishing saggy skin, wrinkles, and fine lines from all parts of the body. The most common areas for skin tightening include the jawline, neck, chest, upper arms, buttocks, and abdomen. Radiofrequency therapy can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite and enhance your contours.
You’ll start to see results a few weeks after your session with the Elixis system. Full results take two to three months as your body’s natural collagen production works to rejuvenate your skin. Depending on your skin’s condition and personal goals, we may recommend additional sessions or other aesthetic services to help you look and feel your best.
