Skin Tightening – Body Radio Frequency
Table of Contents
What Are Radio Frequency Treatments?
Tight skin is often an indicator of being youthful while wrinkles, dimples and cellulite often indicate ageing. Ageing isn’t always the primary cause of loose, dull skin; medication, illness and environmental factors can all lead to premature ageing, too. This is where Radio Frequency treatments come in; these treatments can be used to tighten the skin and make your body feel and look ten years younger! This might sound too good to be true, but Radio Frequency is a top-class procedure which has been proven to work and leave outstanding results.
Radio Frequency works in two ways; firstly, it tightens the collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. Then, it stimulates the cells to produce improved collagen and elastin fibres to keep (or return) skin to it’s youthful, smooth appearance. Keep reading to learn more about the science behind Radio Frequency and how it can benefit your body’s skin.
What Happens In Radio Frequency Treatments?
Skin tightening from Radio Frequency is suitable for all skin types, no matter its condition. As we age, the skin loses firmness, and wrinkles and ridges start to form; our skin begins to droop around the joints, as well as ripple from the lack of elastin which can be unappealing to many sufferers. Radio Frequency treatment targets the collagen and elastin fibres in these areas and bulk heats them to make them tighter; the heat contracts the skin in the dermis, giving an instant result of a lifted and sculpted look to the body. Even celeb Kim Kardashian credits Radio Frequency treatments for keeping her skin tightened!
The treatment also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres by targeting the fibroblasts (the cells which produce these) which is great for shredding those years off of your appearance. Our fibroblasts get sluggish from as early as the age of 20, and sometimes even younger! So stimulating these is the best chance you have at creating new collagen and elastin to improve your skin’s health and appearance.
What Results Can You Achieve From Radio Frequency Treatments?
Radio Frequency will help reduce wrinkles, cellulite and dimples on the legs, stomach, arms, back, neck and hands, as well as lift and tighten the skin. By boosting the production of collagen and elastin, the treatment helps improve the skin’s appearance and texture, creating a more toned and brighter look.
At Aesthetics of Liverpool, our Radio Frequency devices are FDA cleared and are proven to improve and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The results give you an overall youthful look, the extent of which is dependent on your lifestyle and environmental factors prior, as well as your age. Every client that we treat, we provide a bespoke treatment plan for so that their desired results will be achieved.
Early Signs of Ageing: 30-44
Like previously mentioned, our fibroblasts start to give up around our late twenties, so our thirties and forties are when we begin to see the obvious signs of ageing on our skin. Wrinkles and dimples start to form, marring our perfectly smooth body. Clients around this age who decide on our Radio Frequency treatment will begin to notice an improvement after only a few sessions.
What Results to Expect: 44-55
Clients will be creeping closer to menopause from this age which can often cause changes in the skin; accelerating ageing as their oestrogen levels decrease. Other factors such as UV damage and exposure, stress levels, diet and smoking can also impact how early a client starts to show signs of ageing.
The boost of collagen and elastin fibres through this treatment will help tighten and firm the skin, but based on these factors, clients will need to create a unique treatment plan with their cosmetic doctor for the best results. Constant stimulation of the fibroblasts doesn’t give them the chance to slow down or pause, keeping the ageing process from rushing.
What About 56 and Older?
Generally around this age, women will have completed their menopause phase, and fibroblasts will still be extremely sluggish when producing collagen and elastin. Genetics, smoking and sun damage and exposure, again, are all contributing factors to how the skin looks and how it ages. Those who have avoided overexposure to UV rays or don’t smoke are more likely to retain youthful looks.
Clients with older, thinner skin are less likely to see a visible lift and tightness to the skin with just Radio Frequency. They will benefit more from a combined treatment plan. But, Radio Frequency can help the skin feel firmer and more supple with an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles still.
