Read on to learn more about this innovative procedure, and call Your Contour Cosmetic Center today to make your appointment!
About Radio Frequency
The first thing you should know is that everything emits energy, whether it’s the sun, your skin, or your phone. It’s all classified as “electromagnetic” energy, and there is a spectrum of intensity. At one end of the spectrum is harmful, high-frequency rays like gamma rays or ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. Visible light falls in the middle of the spectrum. Radio-frequency waves are at the opposite end from gamma rays — radio waves are long, slow, and very common. In fact, we use radio-frequency waves every day when we turn on the car radio or use WiFi.
Is It Safe?
Using radio waves to help our electronics communicate is one thing, but use radio-frequency waves on our bodies may still sound uncomfortable or frightening. Don’t worry! Radio frequency face lifts and body sculpting treatments have been approved by the FDA, which means they are safe and highly controlled.
Any horror stories you may have heard about the risks of radio frequency face lists usually come down to incorrect use or application. If applied in high doses by an untrained or unskilled practitioner, radio waves can sometimes cause burns. However, Your Counter Cosmetic Center in Plano takes great care to make sure our practitioners are well-versed in safety and application instructions, and they watch every procedure closely to make sure you experience only positive results.
Benefits of Radio Frequency Face Lifts
Why turn to technology like radio-frequency waves for a simple face lift? Because it works! Just as microdermabrasion treatments smooth your skin, radio frequency face lifts contour the treatment area. Each treatment can tighten skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve your appearance. We’ll discuss all the great results you may see later on!
Are You a Good Candidate?
Another way we ensure you get the best possible results from your face lift is by screening possible candidates. Fortunately, this treatment is great for almost everyone! Unlike other procedures, a radio frequency face lift can work for all skin tones without the risk of discoloration. However, if you have any metal implants or you have an electrical device like a pacemaker and are considering a radio frequency body treatment, make sure you discuss this with your practitioner.
The treatment itself is simple! An applicator transmits radio-frequency energy, which penetrates the skin to stimulate therapeutic effects like increased collagen production. Radio waves can safely dive to deeper levels than lasers to promote skin tightening and lifting.
During the procedure, you may feel some heat, but it should remain at comfortable levels, similar to a hot stone massage. You may also notice a faint buzzing in your ears. Overall, a radio frequency face lift is safe and effective when administered correctly. Your practitioner will be carefully monitoring and controlling the whole process to ensure you are comfortable.
A radio frequency face lift can offer both immediate and long-term results. You may notice:
- Firmer skin
- A more contoured experience
- Reduced or removed wrinkles
- Improved skin tone and texture
The treatment also promotes collagen production in the following weeks, so you can enjoy lift and increased volume moving forward. One of the greatest benefits of a radio frequency face lift is that, unlike a traditional face lift, there is no downtime!
Any side effects you may experience should be minimal and short-lived. Some slight swelling, redness, or tingling is normal. If you notice any other symptoms, or these symptoms continue for more than a few days, contact your med spa.
