Radio Frequency Treatment

OVERVIEW


Radio Frequency (RF) technology enables treatment of fine lines and very delicate areas of the face without causing damage or pain. These include areas around the lips (peri oral) and around the eyes (peri orbital).

Radio Frequency treatments (RF) deliver immediate visible body and facial contouring effects from the first treatment – and long-lasting results without surgery or downtime.

Radio Frequency (RF) Treatments effectively:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Firm and rejuvenate the skin
  • Contour the facial skin
  • Sculpt the body and reduce unwanted fat deposits
  • Reduce the appearance of cellulite
  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks

HOW DOES RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) WORK?


The elastic fibers of the skin, collagen and elastin, are produced by fibroblasts. As they are heated, they contract and collagen strands are pulled closer resulting in immediately tightened skin. The deep heating effect in turn accelerates the fat cell metabolism to augment collagen regeneration over the full treatment course. The desired result: tighter, younger looking skin immediately and long-term skin remodeling.

Heating the fat cells accelerates metabolism and causes them to shrink. The rise in temperature forces fat cells to secrete fatty acids (liquid fat), which are disposed via the blood and lymph system.The desired result: fat and circumference reduction and minimized cellulite appearance.

Radio Frequency (RF) technology painlessly delivers focused and optimal radio-frequency (RF) energy to the skin surface and to subcutaneous fat layers. Controlled energy is delivered via three or more electrodes and limited to the treatment area. This focused delivery results in immediate visible results. For improved results it is recommended to undergo a series of treatments.

Radio Frequency (RF) technology allows practitioners to choose between body and/or facial treatments. Targeted facial treatment regenerates collagen fibers in the dermis layer. Targeted body treatments shrink fat cells in the hypodermis layer and accelerate collagen regeneration.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM A RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) TREATMENT?


Recovery from a Radio Frequency (RF) treatment takes 34 hours.

HOW MUCH DOES RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) COST?


The cost of around the mouth surgery in Reston, VA, at Austin-Weston is around $300 – $550.
