At SNA Aesthetics we offer many skin rejuvenating procedures such as Morpheus8 and Forma that are radiofrequency treatment alternatives to facelifts.
How does Radiofrequency work?
Using energy waves the procedure heats the deep layers of your skin and as a result, the heat stimulates collagen. Collagen is the protein that keeps the skin looking youthful and firm. As people get older their body begins to produce less collagen and the skin begins to sag. Radiofrequency is a highly effective treatment because it jump-starts the production of collagen.
What are the side effects of Radiofrequency?
While the procedures are minimally invasive and have virtually no downtime some people may experience swelling, redness, and tingling. However, these side effects are temporary and should go away on their own within a couple of hours to a few days.
“Am I a candidate?”
Radiofrequency is a safe treatment for tightening all skin types, however, it is best to see a specialist for a consultation.
What areas can be treated with Radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency procedures can help reduce wrinkles on the forehead, tighten cheeks, and rejuvenate the face, however, they can also tighten skin on the body. Some other areas are the neck, abdomen, thighs, and arms. Each area needs to be treated with a different temperature because the skin may be thinner in different locations.
Types of Radiofrequency Procedures
Forma is a non-invasive facial remodeling procedure. As with most radiofrequency treatments, Forma is compatible with all skin types reducing wrinkles, stretching, and cellulite and sculpting the treated area.
SNAaesthetics recommends opting for Morpheus8, a procedure that combines radiofrequency and microneedling for the ultimate skin tightening results. In addition to treating the skin issues listed above Morpheus8 can treat acne scarring.
Both radiofrequency treatments can be used in combination with other treatments such as filler.
