What is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?

The appearance of your skin can change over time because the amount of natural nutrients that keep your skin soft, healthy, and resilient can run low. This makes your skin decrease in elasticity, causing signs of aging and sagging skin. If you want to improve the firmness and overall appearance of your skin without surgery, look into radiofrequency skin tightening at Hakimi Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA. Using the advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology of Forma, this skin tightening procedure stimulates the natural production of elastin and collagen in the skin so you can develop firmer, healthier skin. Make an appointment with Dr. Hakimi in Beverly Hills, CA to learn more about radiofrequency skin tightening.

Can I Get Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?

Surgical skin tightening or a “lift” procedure, like a facelift, is one of the best methods to improve lax skin. However, nonsurgical skin tightening using radiofrequency technology may be a great alternative if you do not want to undergo plastic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can be performed on most areas of the face and body, such as the neck, abs, upper arms, and thighs. You are best qualified for this procedure if you:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Are maintaining a healthy weight
  • Have mild to moderate skin looseness on your face or body
  • Have signs of aging on your face or body
  • Want to enhance the health and appearance of your skin

How Does Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Work?

To start the skin tightening process, the area(s) being treated will be sanitized to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. As soon as we are ready, the Forma device will be evenly passed over your skin multiple times. Local anesthesia options can be provided if you want, but most patients feel that any mild discomfort from the treatment is manageable. The heat prompts the body to produce collagen and elastin, thus firming and tightening the skin. Most sessions take between 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and number of areas treated. After the treatment is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your daily routine. The affected areas might be slightly numb, red, or swollen; however, this is normal and should clear up in 2 – 3 days. Dr. Hakimi will go over the best ways to care for your skin post-treatment, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Results are gradual since the collagen and elastin stimulation and production is a gradual process. You will likely see your final results within several months. However, these results should last a long time and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You will probably require several sessions to achieve the most ideal outcome.

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Frequently Asked Questions

How much does radiofrequency skin tightening cost?
Based on how many areas are being treated, the cost of your radiofrequency skin tightening session will vary. Before your procedure, we will personalize a unique treatment plan based on your needs and talk about costs. We can also review payments we accept and where to apply for medical financing.

Should I get radiofrequency or surgical skin tightening?
During your consult, Dr. Hakimi will listen to your goals. Knowing the results you are looking for, plus an exam of your skin to check laxity will help us determine whether you would benefit more from radiofrequency skin tightening or surgical skin tightening. In general, nonsurgical treatments are better if you have loose skin that needs a little extra tone. Moderate to severe loose skin will usually require surgery to remove the excess flaps of skin.
