With everyone being on the constant chase for daily survival, there is very little time we can dedicate to self-beautification but this doesn’t mean it isn’t important in our lives. In fact, taking care of oneself is a big indication of self-love, one of the fundamental tenets of self-esteem and self –consciousness. Since we all agree on this point, what can we do about the prolonged recovery time of surgical cosmetic treatments?

Luckily, we are beginning to experience more and more skin beauty and care treatment innovation in the cosmetic industry. By and large, we can rest easy knowing that at any one time, we can always get a skin lift, cellulite removal, skin toning, loose skin tightening, eye lifting, hair rejuvenation, vaginal rejuvenation and many other treatments using non-surgical techniques with no downtime. Radiofrequency skin tightening is such an example and with it being a minimally invasive treatment, it has proven to be a very effective skin tightening technique.

What Is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?

With no scars, absolutely zero downtime and comfortable treatment, non-surgical skin tightening has gained popularity as the treatment of choice for many patients who see the need to enhance their appearance. Radiofrequency skin tightening, the technique used by MINTS Medical Spa, has been around since the early 2000s. But why is it that you are only hearing about it now?

Well, one way to explain this is that there were a lot of unfounded controversies about the treatment itself and no one publicly came out to rave about its effectiveness in loose skin tightening. At least not until popular celebrities started to rave about the inclusive benefits of the Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments they had experienced. Still, we have a lot of us who would like to experience the same benefits of radiofrequency skin tightening only that they are still terrified about the controversies surrounding the safety of the treatment itself.

Provided the treatment is offered by a certified, experienced and professional doctor such as Doctor Imran of our MINTS Medical Spa in Chicago, you shouldn’t have any complications at all.

Generally, this skin tightening technique uses radiofrequency energy(RF), which is the energy measured in frequencies. RF used in skin beauty for loose skin tightening is in the ballpark of 450kHz, slow end energy on the radiofrequency range. This energy, when compared to the X-ray RF, can be said to be 1billion times much slower hence putting aside any health safety concerns it might have raised.

Is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening A Safe Procedure?

Before we consider how radiofrequency skin tightening works, it is wise to put beyond any shadow of doubt the safety issues people may have concerning this treatment.

Many are times when we get exposed to low levels of radiofrequency energy with or without knowing it. Mention of RF from your mobile device, laptop, Wi-Fi, TV among many others. Since this type of energy is almost emitted by every electronic around us, there is no doubt that a lot of research has been done to consider whether or not it is safe to human health. Until now, there has been no conclusive evidence to even remotely point to RF as having increased the risks of cancer even among professionals who are exposed to higher levels of RF at their workplace on a daily basis.

The only known risk associated with RF is the potential for burns from the thermal heating effect for people exposed to HIGH DOSES— and particularly for those who work around radar equipment without proper protection. On the other hand, the radio frequency used for non-surgical skin tightening and other similar treatments is highly controlled and thus its different from the one emitted by radar equipment and common cell phones. Only FDA cleared technologies are used because they allow the skin beauty practitioner to monitor and control the equipment during treatment process. This ensures that target tissues achieve the optimal temperature so as to induce the production of new collagen and cell regeneration without overheating.

Moreover, all the clinical studies have demonstrated an excellent safety profile on Radiofrequency procedures for loose skin tightening such as facial skin tightening, vaginal rejuvenation, cellulite removal or body contouring among others.

Application Of Radiofrequency Skin Tightening

As a minimally invasive skin beauty treatment, there is no doubt that many people would prefer radiofrequency procedures for various skin conditions. It is widely accepted that this is the best current innovative non-surgical skin tightening and cellulite removal treatment. RF treatments are widely used in aesthetics for fat release, collagen production, and circulation.

The extensive use of RF has been with Thermage for various skin treatments but more specifically for skin tightening. Thermage is capable of treating extensive areas including the neck, abdomen, eyelids, and face. Besides Thermage, RF is also applied by ThermiTight which is the first treatment of its kind to deliver RF through a probe inserted beneath the surface of the skin. This enables both the dermis and the epidermis to be heated thus improving deeper collagen fibre production.

It Is Worth It?

The concept of skin tightening by heating is generally a consensually agreed fact but what is the effectiveness of this technique. Initially, patients who were treated using radiofrequency for skin tightening were only taken through a single treatment session. With this single treatment, results ranged from mild to a modest range of up to 20%. However, with recommendations now being made for patients to request for several radiofrequency skin tightening treatments, one can expect much better results.

If your skin shows early signs of aging or looseness in specific areas, this is the best time to get that defect rectified by knocking at our door at MINTS Medical spa in Chicago. We promise to get your skin nicely tighter, firmer and radiant.
