Radiofrequency skin tightening procedures are quite popular and available at most med spas. Any person 18 or older can get skin tightening as it’s a suitable treatment for individuals looking to gain radiant skin once again or reverse initial signs of dullness that come with aging. 

Since the heat from RF treatments reaches through layers of skin, there’s no harsh damage done that requires recovery time. There’s very little– usually zero– downtime with RF skin tightening treatment, other than some mild soreness from the heat. It’s said that the pain is that of a sunburn.

Most RF resurfacing treatments cost roughly $600 to $1,000, depending on which area of the body you receive treatment.

Typically, a standard RF session takes 20 minutes to one hour. This process is notably painless. The only side effects last about 24 hours where the skin may display redness or mild sensitivity. 

Where Can You Get RF Treatment On the Body?

Radiofrequency resurfacing treatment is most commonly done on the face, neck, and chest, but can also be helpful to other areas of the body. It’s been used to shrink or smooth large stretch marks, so getting RF skin tightening treatment on your legs, butt, or lower abdominal area. Patients seeking this type of treatment for the body have also raved about results for decreasing the appearance of cellulite on the arms, legs, and thighs.

Is There Anyone Who Shouldn’t Get Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Treatments?

People with excess heat in the skin or skin conditions such as rosacea should take caution before any resurfacing treatment. Because rosacea causes red, irritated skin, it’s advised that you seek specialized treatments that will help your specific skin conditions– especially if you are experiencing any enlarged capillaries.
