Overview of

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Therapy

in Thailand

The term "Radiofrequency" refers to a type of energy that is measured in wavelengths or "frequency" per second. It is common energy that is emitted in many household appliances and gadgets we use every day.

Radiofrequency skin tightening (RF) treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses electric currents to generate heat inside the skin's dermis. This process stimulates the production of fibroblasts, which is essential for collagen production.

Invented by Dr. T Bowie, this technique has been widely utilized in the field of cosmetic dermatology. In 2002, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of the first radiofrequency device to address issues with skin laxity and wrinkles.

RF treatment is a fairly simple procedure. It does not require prolonged downtime or extended recovery, making it an ideal option for people who are always on the go. It works well with individuals who have mild to moderate cases of loose skin, and those who do not qualify for reconstructive surgery.

Goals of

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Therapy

  • Introduce heat to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen (collagenesis) which is essential for skin integrity and elasticity.
  • Improve the overall tone and texture of the skin
  • Minimize the appearance of pores, scars, fine lines, and creases
  • Improve jawline and cheekbone definition
  • Tighten the neck area
  • Enhance the overall facial contour

How it works:

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Therapy

Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Tightening is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that can be performed in a doctor's clinic as an outpatient procedure.

This technique can be applied to different parts of the body such as the face, neck, stomach, thighs, and feminine areas.

Since the procedure involves the application of heat on the skin, a numbing cream may be ordered to minimize discomfort during treatment.

By using a small wand attached to an RF machine, a type of electromagnetic radiation called radio waves is passed unto your skin. These waves give off heat that is targeted on the deeper layers of your skin (dermis), thus initiating collagen and elastin production.

Depending on the amount of skin to be treated, the process usually takes 30-90 minutes and patients can go about with their usual activities soon after the procedure.

Because of its increasing popularity and rapid advancement in technology, many types of RF skin tightening systems have been made available in the market. Below are some of the most popular RF systems.

Exilis - Exilis is a dynamic monopolar radiofrequency device that offers a non-invasive treatment for various age-related skin conditions.  

Being a first-generation RF device, its main technology is monopolar-based.  

By initiating energy from a grounding pad through an electrode placed on the skin, heat travels to the deeper skin layers, then back to the grounding pad.  

Exilis is FDA approved and is an excellent option for those who want to look younger without surgery.

Profound RF - Profound is a quick, minimally-invasive treatment that targets sagging skin around the mouth, neck, and cheeks.  

Using RF technology, a hand-held device with small needles is placed on the skin, and heat is released to the deeper levels of the skin at a precise temperature.

Profound RF is ideal for individuals who want to rejuvenate their skin and reduce signs of aging.  According to studies, Profound RF has a 100% success rate for wrinkles and 95% response rate for skin laxity.

Thermage - Introduced more than a decade ago, Thermage offers a non-invasive treatment for most skin concerns that go with aging.  

With this technique, a hand-held device with a flattened tip is gently pressed to the affected area, and radiofrequency energy is delivered to the deep layers of the skin.

While everyone can safely undergo this treatment, the best candidates are those with mild to moderate degrees of skin sagging.

Thermi RF- Thermi is a revolutionary skin tightening treatment that focuses on using temperature-controlled RF to remove unwanted fats and tighten skin. It works well with any part of the body but is more commonly performed on the facial and feminine areas.

Thermi RF is recommended for individuals who wish to have their skin tightened without any surgical procedure.

FAQs:

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Therapy

Is radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening treatment painful?

Most patients who undergo RF tightening treatment find the procedure simple, straightforward, and pain-free. Perhaps the only discomfort reported was the slightly warm feeling you get during treatment. To minimize any of these and ensure a comfortable experience, your doctor may administer topical anesthesia to numb the affected area. Some patients may request to skip anesthesia, and many can tolerate the procedure and report some feelings of pressure and warmth every now and then.

Is RF Skin tightening treatment effective?

Radiofrequency is considered the gold standard in skin laxity treatment. It can boost collagen by about 20% and turnover dead skin cells faster than other topical products.

In a study conducted in 2018 amongst 70 middle-aged women with wrinkles around their eyes, researchers found that three successive treatments in 6 weeks significantly reduced the wrinkles and fine lines.

What other areas of the body can be treated with radiofrequency treatment?

Almost all areas of the body can be treated with RF skin tightening treatment. This includes the face, abdomen,  thighs, and feminine areas. Since there are two sizes available for the device, the treatment can be done with ease for both small and large areas of the body.

Is radiofrequency safe?

Clinical studies have shown an excellent safety profile on RF procedures for skin laxity, body contour, and facial rejuvenation.

Radiofrequency skin tightening is approved by the FDA and is considered safe as long as it is performed by a skilled and licensed surgeon.

How often should you go for treatment?

The number of subsequent procedures which need to be done depends on factors such as age and the degree of skin laxity.

For mild sagging, a single treatment may be enough. Moderate sagging may require additional treatments. Treatment sessions may be scheduled three months apart, while some cases may require a monthly touch-up, for about 8 or 9 months.
