Using Radio Frequency which is a non-surgical treatment, we tighten up the skin in your abdominal area to improve the texture of the skin and reverse the effects of aging.
What are radiofrequency waves?
RF waves are a form of radiation. Radiation is the release of energy in the form of electromagnetic waves. It can be classified as low energy or high energy depending on the amount of energy released. X-rays and gamma rays are examples of high energy radiation while RF waves are considered low energy. Radio waves, WiFi, and microwaves are all forms of RF waves.
The form of radiation used in RF skin tightening releases about 1 billion times less energy than X-rays.
How Does Radio Frequency Work?
Radio Frequency waves heat the dermis layer of your skin to between 122 and 167°F (50–75°C). Studies have found that maintaining a temperature over 115°F (46°C) for over 3 minutes causes your body to release heat-shock proteins. These proteins stimulate your body to create new collagen fibers which helps improve signs of wrinkles and sagging skin.
The procedure takes less than an hour and should be nearly painless.
What are the benefits of Radio Frequency Treatment?
Lasers can tighten skin almost anywhere on the body. They can help to get rid of wrinkles in the skin. They are also great for post-birth recovery by application in the abdomen area. A 2011 study found that 3 months of RF treatment led to clinically significant improvements in a small group of people with mild to moderate signs of sun damage.
