RadioFrequency Skin Tightening
We are happy to be recognized as the second practice in DFW to be able to offer this exciting new treatment. RadioFrequency (RF) Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive procedure performed in our office with local anesthesia or light sedation. Get a tight, slim neck with this short, simple procedure. We use radiofrequency energy to gently warm the skin, tightening and smoothing it in just a few minutes.
Patients today are demanding faster, less invasive procedures with little, if any, downtime, that can tighten loose sagging skin, and reduce unwanted fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. Now, our practice is pleased to offer this new approach to skin tightening and non-surgical fat reduction for face and neck contouring.
Many patients choose skin tightening to enhance their neck contours or to improve the results of their facelifts.
How is RadioFrequency Skin Tightening different from a laser?
Unlike lasers where the laser energy is absorbed by the skin’s surface, with RF the energy is absorbed by the deeper dermal layer, and stimulates the production of collagen to tighten the skin from within. RF can be used to tighten the skin of the face and neck. Symphony RF is the first aesthetic therapy with temperature control. This means that Dr. McBride can set the desired temperature and deliver the energy at the perfect temperature to get the best result.
How many RadioFrequency Skin Tightening treatments are needed?
The number of treatments will depend on the skin laxity, the area to be treated and the results desired. Most patients see immediate improvement with the first treatment. However, some patients need 2 to 3 treatments. RadioFrequency Skin Tightening treatments are administered every two to three months as desired to reach your goal. Keep in mind that the results from RadioFrequency Skin Tightening are gradual, and it may take from three to six months for the skin to tighten maximally.
How are RadioFrequency Skin Tightening procedures performed?
We cleanse the area to be treated, and apply a gel to the skin. The delicate Symphony treatment wand is placed against the skin and low radiofrequency energy is applied. You will feel a comfortable, warming sensation. Dr. McBride will adjust the temperature to the ideal treatment level. Treatment time varies depending on the area treated. Treatment usually takes between twenty and thirty minutes.
