Keep That Youthful Look with Radiofrequency

On-Point Health

Woman Looking at the MirrorPeople pursue healthy lifestyles to keep feeling and looking young, but unfortunately, activities and exercise do not remove saggy, excess skin. Skin creams and a healthy diet can only do so much to slow down the signs of aging.

Fortunately, new technologies help you to reshape your body and face without surgery. In New York City, many are choosing radiofrequency facial treatments as a way to rid the body of fat cells and stimulate collagen growth.

What is Radiofrequency Treatment?

This non-invasive method reshapes and firms the skin without the need for surgery or injections. It can remove cellulite, wrinkles, and unwanted fatty tissues. The treatment is also used for facials. In many trials, wrinkles and creases become less visible after treatment.

The doctor uses a device that emits unipolar or bipolar radio frequencies. This frequency emits heat into the skin layer and stimulates collagen production. During this process, your body starts to repair itself and tightens the skin in the area, giving it a smoother appearance.

Unipolar frequencies reduce cellulite while bipolar frequencies are best for facial treatments. Though results vary from patient to patient, those with saggy and excess skin benefit a lot from radio-frequency.

The Treatment Process

Radiofrequency treatments often last from 60 to 90 minutes. Doctors recommend a treatment every week to get the best results. First, a cooling gel is applied to stimulate collagen. The doctor then cleanses and exfoliates the area using a vacuum-like device. Then the LED wand is radiated across the area.

Some people experience the changes after the initial treatment, but it is best to expect results after six treatments. You also need further treatments every quarter or so to maintain your skin’s appearance.

Like any skin treatment procedure, consult with your doctor if radiofrequency suits you. Any treatment has possible risks and side effects, so do your research and ask your doctor if you are a good candidate for radiofrequency facial treatments.
