Q – Dr. Elijah, I keep hearing the term “Radiofrequency” being used when it comes to skin treatments – what exactly does this mean and what can it do for my skin?
A – This is an excellent question — especially considering the increase in radiofrequency treatments.
In short, radiofrequency (RF) is a non-invasive treatment for skin tightening — RF aims to stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve the skin’s elasticity — without much downtime and can be done during your lunch break. – Rochelle Elijah, MD
Who Is Radiofrequency (RF) For?
This treatment can be used by both women and men (yes, men, we know you have skincare needs, too!).
Radiofrequency is fitting for most people due to the lack of downtime and minimal pain associated with it.
RF can be used on the face for collagen stimulation and skin elasticity improvement, in addition to neck and body contouring as well.
Many clients love the lack of downtime that RF can give for body contouring treatments compared to an invasive procedure like a tummy tuck or liposuction!
What Results Can I Expect from Radiofrequency (RF)?
Utilizing RF for your skincare treatment is like playing the long game; overnight results aren’t typical.
You can usually begin to see results after a couple treatments – 6-12 are recommended depending on skin type, etc.
Think of this non-invasive RF treatment as a workout for your skin – better skincare over time will help you feel like yourself, both inside and out!
Keep in Mind…
Not all medical aesthetics providers are the same, so do your research!
Make sure you’re comfortable with the person who will be taking care of your skin + self-care needs.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions (that’s why we recommend a consultation) because feeling at home with your local medical spa is key to a lasting relationship!
