About RF Skin Tightening
While diet and exercise may help you reduce fat and firm skin on certain areas of your body, some parts are resistant to change. It could be the result of age, weight loss, or loss of elasticity, but many patients find it very difficult to precisely pinpoint and tighten their skin without the help of cosmetic surgery. Plano, TX cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Caruth can help. Using BodyFX body contouring and Morpheus8 skin tightening, Dr. Caruth can help you tighten skin, smooth cellulite, and reduce fat cells, improving the overall appearance of the treatment area significantly. BodyFX is a nonsurgical, noninvasive, radiofrequency-assisted system that tightens skin and decreases fat cells with the help of deep-tissue heating and suction. Also helping to stimulate collagen production, BodyFX offers results that continue to improve over the coming months. Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge microneedling procedure that uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production, tighten skin, reduce wrinkles on the face and body, and improve complexion. If you are interested in tightening the skin on and around your abdomen, legs, buttocks, arms, jawline, neck, and chest, schedule a consultation at Plano Aesthetics today.
Ideal candidates for RF skin tightening with Morpheus8 or BodyFX are those who are in search of a nonsurgical solution for loose skin that is not responsive to diet and exercise alone. Those who are starting to lose skin elasticity or have fine lines or wrinkles are also great candidates. This procedure is not meant for those who need to lose a large amount of weight. To be considered an ideal candidate, you should be at or close to your goal weight with a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise.
RF skin tightening by BodyFX and Morpheus8 involves the use of a specialized handpiece being maneuvered around the treatment area(s) while the patient lies down comfortably in one of our minor procedure rooms. As the procedure does not require incisions, the applicator will merely be placed against the surface of the skin, targeting specific areas of concern, for a period of about 30 minutes. This process does not require anesthesia of any kind and will not cause discomfort. Patients are released immediately after treatment to return to their daily activities.
What to Expect
There is no downtime necessary after either of these procedures. Most patients find the treatment entirely comfortable with very few if any contraindications. The exciting technology works gradually to reduce fat and tighten the skin over time and is best suited to treat stubborn areas of fat, loose skin, and cellulite by tightening the overlying skin. On average, about 6 – 8 weekly treatments are required to achieve your desired aesthetic results. Each BodyFX and Morpheus8 treatment session takes less than an hour to complete.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does RF skin tightening cost?
The cost for your treatment will depend on the number of areas you are treating and the number of sessions required to achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Caruth will develop a customized treatment plan during your consultation and will attempt to work within your budget to address your concerns.
How does RF skin tightening work?
BodyFX combines radiofrequency energy to heat your body tissue at multiple depths, reducing the size of fat cells and stimulating the production of collagen. Over time, the processes tighten the skin and reduce the number of fat cells in the treatment area.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a naturally occurring substance within the body that helps to maintain your skin’s hydration, elasticity, and firmness. As the natural aging process slows down our supply of collagen, we experience looser, thinner, and less elastic skin. RF skin tightening stimulates the production of collagen, helping your skin to eventually become firmer.
What about post-procedure recovery?
RF skin tightening is noninvasive and nonsurgical. Incisions are not required to complete the procedure, therefore you will not need to recover after your sessions. As an added bonus, the session typically lasts no more than 30 minutes, which means you can return to your daily activities quickly and without discomfort.
