As aesthetics technology gets better, new treatment options are becoming more commonly available all the time for tightening skin, reducing wrinkles, and boosting overall skin health. For people who want non-invasive solutions or who have an aversion to traditional treatments, more high-tech options can offer a whole new world that may not have been available before.
One of those options is radiofrequency skin tightening, a well-established technique that has become a new benchmark for quality and results in medical aesthetics. We are proud to offer it right here in downtown Calgary for our clients at Spa Escape!
What is radiofrequency for skin care?
Radiofrequency (also written as radio-frequency, radio frequency, or simply RF) is a targeted treatment that helps deal with loose skin, wrinkles, collagen loss, and other common issues that are seen around the facial area as we age. It is non-invasive and requires no surgical work, with no recovery time and zero disruptions to your daily routines.
For best results, people often pair this procedure with anti-aging facials, IPL (intense pulsed light) work, or other skin tightening treatments. While not necessary, this can make the results even more dramatic in a shorter time frame.
How skin radiofrequency works
Just like how IPL skin rejuvenation uses pulses of light to affect the skin layers, radiofrequency uses similar energetic waves to get through the outer layers and stimulate the underlying tissues. The process we use at Spa Escape is known as tripollar radiofrequency, the latest iteration of the technology, which is already grounded and runs no risk of shocks or burns to the skin. In fact, most people report that it feels like a warm, gentle, relaxing massage.
These waves penetrate the skin and promote the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, restoring the skin’s elasticity and helping to keep the skin hydrated. Together, these restore health and youthfulness in your appearance and smooth out signs of aging.
What to expect when getting radiofrequency treatment
The first step is to come in for a free consultation with one of our trained aestheticians, who can walk you through your options and how the treatment is administered. Because some of the options you may choose are more intensive processes (such as radiofrequency with microneedling, which uses radiofrequency technology in conjunction with small needles to get further in the skin and stimulate collagen growth), it is important to decide what is right for you and proceed accordingly. Here, you can decide if you want to add facials or other treatments as well.
For the skin tightening treatment with radiofrequency, a change in the tightness of the skin can be seen after just one treatment, which itself takes less than an hour to do. For best results with more longevity, we recommend at least 4-6 sessions with each spread out 1-2 weeks apart. This will not only have a dramatic effect, but will “lock it in” for a much longer term.
