Radiofrequency treatments can tighten and thicken skin
Radiofrequency treatments are a non-surgical option for tightening skin and producing new collagen on any area of the body. The results are usually not dramatic, but there’s no down time, no incisions, and it can be used on any skin type since radiofrequency energy is not attracted to pigment.
How Radio Frequency Produces Skin Tightening and Collagen Production?
Radiofrequency waves produce varying amounts of heat depending on the resistance of the tissue layers in the treated area. This heat boosts collagen production to thicken skin and the skin also contracts once it reaches a specific temperature.
As with all current skin tightening treatments, it usually takes several sessions before a significant overall improvement is seen, but often the tightening effect is visible immediately after one side is treated when compared to the non-treated side. Maximum results take around eight weeks after a treatment since the collagen continues to remodel for that time..
