Treatment & Results
Each treatment is tailored to your individual needs and will focus on the areas of your face where you’re most in need of firming and tightening. We’ll start by applying a gel that will help safely conduct heat. We’ll then rest a handheld device against the skin and sweep it across the treatment zone in gentle circles. It will take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to address each treatment area. The device will be delivering radiofrequency energy through your skin without penetrating the surface of your face.
There is no pain or discomfort associated with this treatment. There is also no need for anesthesia. The temperature of the treatment adjusts in accordance with the temperature of your skin, so you will never feel uncomfortably hot. Most patients describe the sensation as a warm, gentle massage. Depending on the area being treated, you’ll be seated or reclining comfortably. Most patients find the experience to be relaxing, and some even doze off during treatment.
Immediately after your treatment, you might notice some initial tightening. This will be because the heat associated with the treatment shrinks the collagen fibers in your skin. But collagen production in your skin will also kick into high gear, and your results will improve as you progress through your series of treatments. It may take up to six months for your full results to become clear. After a patient has undergone an initial round of treatments, we often suggest follow-up treatments every nine to twelve months to maintain results.
