About RF Wrinkle Reduction

Radio Frequency (RF) technology is an FDA-approved wrinkle treatment now being used in clinics by many skin care professionals. The technology began as a solution for stretch marks, but has now been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles from age, sun exposure and stress.

  1. What It Is

    • RF technology first appeared in the 1930s. It involves small electrodes that tighten the skin. New advancements in the field of cryogenics have made it possible for RF devices to stimulate the deepest layers of the skin without harming the outer layers.

    Types of Treatment

    • You can purchase and use your very own RF wrinkle-reduction device at home. There are many different brands on the market; some of the most popular are the Accent, Aurora and Polaris models. These are handheld devices, usually containing one or more electrodes, which you can apply to affected areas. The machines may produce a hot sensation when applied.

    Typical Results

    • RF wrinkle reduction has been shown to reduce the appearance of jowls, baggy skin around the eyes and wrinkles on the forehead, cheeks and neck. You should not expect the results to be as extreme as a surgical facelift. RF treatments can only help to reduce the severity of wrinkles. RF devices work on all skin tones.

    Warnings

    • Some side effects of commercial RF wrinkle-reduction devices are swelling and redness. Some users may find that skin moisturizers help reduce the discomfort. To be safe, consult your doctor before beginning any wrinkle treatment.
