Embrace RF, a radio frequency based skin tightening technology, can improve the laxity of the skin and make it look firmer and younger. Skin tightening is a great minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that can be done on the face, arms, thighs, hands and legs for an overall anti-aging skin rejuvenation.
Don’t we all want to feel young and look young forever? Don’t we wish there was a way to stop aging in its tracks at least for a couple of years to begin with? Because no matter what we try, aging catches up. It starts with a couple of fine lines, wrinkles and slightly loose skin.
The skin is the first part that shows signs of aging. It loses its firmness and begins sagging. Many plastic surgeons offer surgical procedures to correct the issue of saggy or loose skin, but minimally invasive procedures can tighten the skin without surgery.
What Is Skin Tightening?
Non-surgical skin tightening procedures aim to restore the lost collagen in the skin and tighten the skin. Aging causes skin to sag and droop. Skin tightening procedures restores a youthful, taut skin that reverses aging considerably for the person.
What Is the Best Treatment for Skin Tightening?
The best skin tightening treatments include surgical options such as facelift and non-surgical options include skin tightening with radio frequency. Skin tightening is an anti-aging treatment that works wonders for the patients and makes them look youthful and attractive once again.
Can Sagging Skin be Reversed?
Yes, sagging skin can be reversed through cosmetic treatments. Skin begins to sag because it loses elasticity over time. When the production of collagen in the body lowers, skin begins to sag. Undergoing treatments that will boost collagen production can help in tightening the skin and reversing sagging completely.
What Is the Embrace RF Machine?
Embrace RF uses radio frequency waves to tighten the skin on the face, neck, arms, thighs, abdomen and buttocks. It is a minimally invasive device which produces high quality results without compromising on patient’s safety.
How Does Radio Frequency Work?
Radio frequency is primarily a type of energy which is measured in either frequencies or wavelengths. Radio frequency is a common type of energy which is available in our mobile phones, WiFi, microwave ovens, television sets and other such day-to-day items. The wavelengths of these items vary greatly according to their function and other features.
Radio frequencies have been used greatly in the medical field for alleviating pain through radio frequency ablation. It has proven to be tremendously useful in this field. It has been used for skin tightening for the past two decades and is a no downtime and effective procedure.
Radio frequencies work by heating the skin’s deepest layers to encourage the production of elastin and collagen which is the basis of having a taut, firm and youthful skin. It works on the deeper levels with a calm and slow frequency (around 450 kilohertz), and hence can be used on people of various skin tones as the risks of discoloration and pigmentation are minimal.
Uses of Embrace RF Skin Tightening
Embrace RF works best for skin tightening of the entire body. It works by generating heat and using the heat to penetrate to the deeper levels of the skin. This boosts the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin, in turn, tighten the skin and restore a youthful appearance.
Embrace RF can work for stress continence as well. In women, urinary continence can be solved with the help of this machine. In some cases, urine leakage is observed even when the woman coughs, sneezes or does any vigorous physical activities like jumping and running. Embrace RF is used in such cases in order to tighten the vaginal skin and perineal musculature.
Step by Step Embrace RF Procedure
- The Embrace RF procedure is generally performed with the help of either local anesthesia or with the help of slight sedation. This makes sure that the patient does not feel any discomfort while the process is going on.
- After this, a tiny needle-like probe is inserted into the target areas to directly deliver the RF to the underlying tissue. The heat produced then helps to counter issues like loose and hanging skin along with excessive fat which might be present.
- Simultaneously, the skin surface is looked up after with a unique handpiece. This helps to improve the texture of the skin.
The results of Embrace RF’s Facetite, just like a facelift, can be immediately observed and last for a couple of years. However, one must understand that we can just pause aging, not stop it completely!
What Is the Recovery after Skin Tightening with Embrace RF Treatment?
As Embrace RF skin tightening does not require any surgery, there is minimal downtime for the patient. A couple of days for resting and recuperation are advisable. Some mild bruising and swelling is common after the procedure. However, this is temporary and heals quickly.
