What is Radiofrequency and Micro Currents?

Radio Frequency restores skin elasticity for a tighter, smoother and more contoured appearance. Commonly used to tighten skin on the cheeks, jawline and neck. Minimal to no downtime.

After a single treatment, you will immediately see improved definition of facial features and tighter, firmer skin. Our multi-channel radio frequency device promotes collagen production and helps improves skin elasticity. Treatments are painless and have no downtime.

This procedure has minimal to no downtime. You may experience mild redness or swelling, which typically subsides in a few hours. Directly after treatment you may wear makeup, exervice and continue your normal skincare routine.

Over time, our skin will show signs of age. It’s natural: Skin loosens up because it starts to lose proteins called collagen and elastin, the substances that make our skin tight. The  results are wrinkles, sagging, and a crepey appearance on your hands, neck, and face‌.‌If you’re looking to try something other than fillers or surgery, you may want to consider skin tightening with a type of energy called radio waves.

How Does Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Work?

Radiofrequency skin tightening, or RF treatment, is a non-invasive treatment that we offer at the Skincare by Rochel.  Our expert esthetician will use a wand that is connected to a machine that creates radio waves. They will pass the wand over your face to apply radio waves to your skin.

The waves give off heat that prompts your skin to produce more collagen and elastin. The treatment also speeds up cell turnover, so the skin gets firmer and thicker over time.

What Can Radiofrequency Treatments Help?

Radiofrequency skin tightening is a safe, effective anti-aging treatment for a number of different parts of the face. It is a popular treatment for the face and neck area.

Effects. You may start to see changes to your skin right away. The most significant improvements to skin tightness will come later. Skin can keep getting tighter up to six months after the radiofrequency treatment.

Recovery. Normally, since this procedure is completely noninvasive, you won’t have much of a recovery time. You may be able to go back to normal activities right after the treatment.

In the first 24 hours, you may see some redness or feel tingling and soreness. Those symptoms disappear pretty quickly. In rare cases, people have reported pain or blistering from the treatment.

Number of treatments. Most people only need three treatments to see full effects. We recommend following an appropriate skin care regimen after the procedure.

Sunscreen and other good skincare products based on your skin type may help make the effects last longer.

How Long Does Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Last?

The effects of radiofrequency skin tightening are not as long-lasting as the actual surgery, but they do last a significant amount of time.

Once you’ve had the treatment, you shouldn’t need to repeat it for a year or two. Dermal fillers, by comparison, need to be touched up several times per year.
