When you have mild to moderate skin laxity and do not want to have an expensive, painful surgical intervention to tighten up your loose, sagging skin on your body and/or face, we can offer radio frequency skin tightening at Elite Plastic Surgery for qualifying candidates. Phoenix, AZ plastic and reconstructive surgeons, Drs. Torabi and Matatov can target the deep layers of your skin with radio frequency energy with the Alma vShape Ultra technology to stimulate the body's natural collagen production. This increase in collagen will boost the skin's elasticity, smooth out wrinkles, and repair damage from stretch marks and cellulite within the skin. During a private consultation, we will discuss with you that safest approach to your skincare needs, and how the radio frequency skin tightening can help reproduce the natural bodily substances that can bring back the skin’s youthful shape. Individual results may vary so call our office today to see if RF Skin Tightening is the right choice for you.
During your treatment at our practice, you will be taken to one of our treatment rooms designated for your complete privacy. A numbing cream or cooling gel may be applied to the skin to act as a barrier for the skin's protection. The procedure is known to produce a mild sensation, and we can help eliminate the discomfort with topical anesthetics and cooling gels if needed. Using a targeted (radio frequency) heat, your plastic surgeon will implement your noninvasive skin tightening treatment in the area discussed at your consultation.
Your number of treatments will be dependent on the location of the treatment on your body, size of the area to be treated, and the extent severity of your skin's condition.
- A full face treatment generally takes a minimum of 4 treatments spread out for several weeks for optimal results.
- Larger areas on the body can require up to 15 sessions spaced out over a period of weeks.
- We do offer maintenance sessions for patients who would like to continue benefiting from the noninvasive skin tightening before switching to a more aggressive intervention.
What to Expect
Your treatment will not be painless, but we will offer numbing agents for your skin if needed. You may still experience redness and swelling in the treatment area, which will subside in a few, short weeks. The pay off in the end will be smoother, softer skin that looks tighter. The results from this treatment can last for more than 2 years as long as the patient follows all of the directives of the plastic surgeon.
Your plastic surgeon may offer this noninvasive procedure before attempting an invasive procedure where the skin would be excised off and sutured. Keep in mind that the treatment may not work. The most effective treatment for loose skin is a surgical lift of the affected area. The good news is that the RF skin tightening treatment will still boost collagen within your skin, and this can aid in healing in post-operation recovery.
