What is RF Tightening Massage
Looking for a facial massage and a tightening at the same time? Essential Aesthetics is excited to offer radiofrequency-tightening facial massages to our patients. This treatment uses cutting-edge technology to contour and tightens your skin while softening fine lines and wrinkles.
How do RF Facial Massages Work
Did you know collagen is the most abundant protein in our body? It has many important functions, including keeping our skin looking young and healthy. However, as we age, our collagen production begins to decrease, resulting in skin elasticity, fine lines, and wrinkles. This is where RF comes into play. RF energy stimulates collagen production and elastin fibers by delivering controlled heat to the deep dermis in a safe and effective manner. By targeting multiple layers of the skin, this RF procedure treats the root cause of skin aging with minimal pain and long-term results.
Am I a Candidate
If you are experiencing a loss of firmness and dullness in your skin, you are a great candidate for RF treatments. This treatment can also be used to reduce fat on the face and under the chin to slim down your face and achieve a slimmer jawline. In some cases, RF skin tightening might give the results of a facelift without surgery.
RF treatments are not suitable for patients with pacemakers, defibrillators, or any implanted electronic devices, as well as metal implants in the treatment area. It is recommended to wait 3 months after dermal fillers and 2 weeks after Botulinum Toxin injections before receiving treatment.
When Will I See Results
After your RF skin treatment, you will immediately notice an improved facial appearance. It is recommended to receive weekly treatment with maintenance and follow-up sessions every 3–6 months. With a consistent skin care regimen and annual maintenance treatments, the results can last for up to three years.
How Many Sessions Will I Need
Depending on the severity of your concerns, Ellie Zarnegar, PA, DMSc, will determine the number of treatments necessary for results. The radio-frequency current warms the tissue and promotes collagen formation with each treatment, resulting in an impact similar to the shrink wrap. It is important to first focus on fat loss before working on skin tightening. We offer a series of packages based on your needs:
