Radio Frequency, NYC

Radio Frequency vs. Laser: How do these anti-aging treatments tighten skin differently? It’a a matter of the energy source used to resurface and rejuvenate the skin. Today, we’re highlighting the restoring powers of a radio frequency treatment for the face. Find out whether it’s right for your specific skincare concern and your skin type:

Radio Frequency vs. Laser Skin Tightening

Lasers, like Intense Pulsed Light therapy (IPL), use light as their energy source to rejuvenate and resurface the skin. On the other hand, radio frequency takes advantage of the healing power of electricity. Because this treatment uses a thermal effect to heat the subcutaneous tissue, it causes collagen fibers to regroup and contract. As a result, It works on both the surface and deeper levels of the skin. This dual action makes it a great noninvasive treatment to tighten loose or sagging skin.

Radio Frequency Results

This procedure works well to restore a youthful appearance to maturing skin. After a treatment, collagen fibers will tighten immediately. As a result, skin will be instantly smoother and more radiant. Collagen will continue to generate after a series of sessions. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles will improve, skin will smooth out and appear plumper. Further, you’ll notice a restoring lift to the cheeks and a tightening of the jawline.

Radio Frequency Side Effects: Pain, Swelling or Downtime?

This treatment is a completely noninvasive procedure, which means that most people consider it pain free. During a session, you will feel gentle heat on the skin. However, most people find the treatment to be comfortable and relaxing. Of note, clients often liken treatment to a hot stone massage. Because the procedure is easily tolerated, you can return to normal activity immediately following treatment.
