RF SKIN TIGHTENING


NON-INVASIVE SKIN LIFTING & TIGHTENING WITH RADIOFREQUENCY TECHNOLOGY

Get back to the real you with radiofrequency skin tightening and lifting, a big game changer that produces more predictable results in less time with improved comfort. This latest skin tightening solution is available at Calvin Chan Aesthetic & Laser Clinic and is used to tighten, gently lift and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance.

Harnessing the power of non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) energy, this skin rejuvenation treatment delivers the energy deep within the dermis to tighten and remodel existing collagen, and stimulate neocollagenesis.

Radiofrequency skin tightening integrates the Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) with the latest AccuREPTM technology that auto-tunes each pulse of energy for an even more precise and consistent treatment, suited to your skin. The new generation Radiofrequency skin tightening can speed up treatment by up to 25% and the multidirectional vibration also offers a more comfortable experience for face and body treatments. Radiofrequency skin tightening delivers faster, more precise and consistent treatments with enhanced comfort.

Another exciting feature of Radiofrequency skin tightening is the preventive benefit. Since Radiofrequency skin tightening works by heating and tightening collagen, it can actually prevent skin aging. Patients who have a treatment at 2-3 year intervals will reduce skin aging and sagging as compared to those who are not treated.

How does it work?

As we age, the collagen that keeps our skin firm breaks down resulting in aging skin that contains fine lines and wrinkles. A Radiofrequency skin tightening™ treatment uses Total Tip 4 (900shots) radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin. The applied heat causes existing collagen matrix to contract and encourages new collagen to start growing. This helps create smoother skin after just one treatment, with results that continue to improve over the next 4-6 months.

According to most patients, Radiofrequency skin tightening delivers a better, faster and more comfortable treatment experience. The device still employs Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT™), which uses vibrating pulses in the handpiece to enhance patient comfort, and the enlarged treatment tips allow for faster, more uniform heating to enhance treatment goals.

How long does each treatment take?

Patients will need to be prepped about 20 minutes before the procedure. During the procedure, a handheld device is pressed against your skin to safely deliver heat to the inner layers, at the same time cooling the surface of the skin. Each time the treatment device touches your skin during the treatment, you’ll feel a vibration and a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another bout of cooling. The heat is a sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for tightening. Throughout the procedure, your physician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments average about 45 minutes for the face and up to an hour and a half for other parts of the body, depending on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated.

Is there any pain or downtime?

The treatment incorporates vibration which has been shown to provide patient comfort. You’ll feel a brief heating sensation when the treatment device’s tip touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to help protect your skin and minimize any discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Some patients experience slight redness or minor swelling after the treatment which will typically goes away within 24 hours. You can return to your regular activities immediately.

What results should I expect?

For most patients, measurable results can appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session and can last for about 1-2 years depending on your skin condition and ageing process.

How many treatments will I need?

Radiofrequency skin tightening is designed as a single session treatment. However, some patients may choose to have a second treatment to obtain additional tightening. The skin will continue to improve over a six-month time period.

HOW IS RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING DIFFERENT FROM ITS PREDECESSORS?

Like its predecessors, the new Radiofrequency skin tightening™ uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin. The applied heat causes collagen to contract and encourages new collagen to start growing. This helps create smoother skin after just one treatment with results that continue to improve.

The new 4th generation device builds on the improvements made with the prior generation Radiofrequency skin tightening CPT. The FLX offers better results, quicker treatments, and more comfortable treatments because of a new energy delivery algorithm, larger spot size, and improvements in the vibrating hand-piece. The new AccuREP energy delivery algorithm automatically tunes the energy delivered prior to every pulse rather than only before the first pulse as was the case with the prior generations of the device. This change means improved efficiency and comfort.

Another exciting feature of Radiofrequency skin tightening is the preventive benefit. Since Radiofrequency skin tightening works by heating and tightening collagen, it can actually prevent skin aging. Patients who have a treatment at 2-3 year intervals will reduce skin aging and sagging as compared to those who are not treated.

IS RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING COMPATIBLE WITH FILLERS?

Yes, it is usually advisable to do your Radiofrequency skin tightening first before you do the fillers, however like all treatments, it’s always better to arrange a consultation with the doctor first.
