Q: What is RF?
A: RF stands for radio frequency. It is a nonsurgical and noninvasive modality used by clinicians to help tighten skin and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, cellulite, and skin laxity. Instead of using laser light, which is a high frequency, to heat the tissue, radio-frequency energy is used.
Q: What are the benefits?
A: RF is one of those treatments, much like microneedling, that has a long list of benefits. After a treatment, you will notice some immediate tightening due to contraction of the heated tissues. Long term, you will have significant collagen synthesis, which will plump up your collagen layer to create that fuller look young people enviously possess.
Q: Who is the best candidate for this treatment?
A: This is possibly the best part about radio-frequency treatments—almost anyone is an ideal candidate. Men and women benefit from treatments on the face and body (think tummy, legs, arms, neck or décolletage). TempSureTM is actually cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for African Americans, who are not able to undergo most laser treatments because of the potential for hypo- or hyperpigmentation. Plus, there is no downtime!
Q: How often do you need to have the treatment?
A: A series of four about four weeks apart is the most common frequency of treatments.
Q: What is the cost?
A: The investment for these treatments range between $250 to $2,400, depending on what area we are treating and how many treatments we will be doing.
