Common Myths About Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment (RF Treatments)
Radiofrequency skin tightening, or RF treatment, is a non-invasive procedure that uses low-energy radiation to heat the deep layer of your skin called the dermis. This heat stimulates collagen production to help improve signs of wrinkles and sagging skin.
While the advantages and safe nature of RF treatments cannot be understated, myths can confuse and lead to people being nervous or misinformed. For example, the misconception that skin-firming creams work as well and that skin tightening with radiofrequency hurts can cause people to miss out on the inherent benefits of the procedure.
To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, Advance Laser Clinic has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about non-invasive skin tightening treatments.
Myth 1: RF treatments are only meant for the face
While RF works miracles on the face by targeting acne, scars, wrinkles, and even rosacea, RF treatments are also effective on other parts of the body. For example, for saggy skin on the neck, loose skin on the stomach, stretch marks, love handles, back and thighs, RF and MP technology is the best. It encourages the natural formation of collagen and elastin to help improve your skin tone, lessen fine lines, and contour the targeted area.
Myth 2: RF treatments have an extended downtime
This is a complete misconception. Most RF treatments have very minimal downtime, and some even have none at all. After the procedure, some patients may experience some redness or a little bit of swelling, but it usually goes away after an hour or two.
Myth 3: RF treatments are just for older patients
This is not so. Anyone can get RF treatments depending on their needs. Whether you’re in your late forties or getting ready for your wedding in your twenties, the right RF procedure will benefit you. The procedure is perfect for those who want to lose unwanted inches on their body while encouraging collagen and elastin production for smoother skin.
