What is RF Skin Tightening?
Throughout our younger days, we can enjoy a rich supply of collagen and elastin that keeps our skin soft and resilient. As we age, this foundational storage of nutrients is likely to deplete, decreasing the firmness of our skin, which leads to lines, wrinkles, and droopy skin. If you wish to elevate the tautness of your skin without surgery, then you might want to have radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening at iContour Anti-Aging Center. With the use of advanced radiofrequency technology, RF skin tightening works to increase the generation of fibers and proteins so it's possible to achieve firmer, healthier skin. Our team in Boston, MA is pleased to perform RF skin tightening for Milton, Cohasset, and Newburyport, MA patients who want to rejuvenate and smooth their skin with long-lasting nonsurgical solutions.
"I really enjoyed the experience I had at IContour Anti Aging Center. I had the iContour Signature Basic Facial with Marie. I liked how the appointment began with a machine taking photos to identify spots, pores, wrinkles, etc. Marie provided a quick overview of what would be focused on during the appointment. The studio was very clean and provided a relaxing environment as soft music played in the background. I would recommend checking this place out if you're looking for a facial treatment in the Newbury Street area."- D.M. / Google / Sep 21, 2021

What Can I Expect from RF Skin Tightening?
Once you arrive at iContour Anti-Aging Center for your procedure, we'll start by cleansing the treatment sites. We may provide a desensitizing ointment to soothe the skin during your treatment; however, many people agree that any minor pain is short-lived and manageable. When you are ready, we will smoothly pass the Alma Accent Prime handpiece along your skin multiple times for the best outcomes. This system helps stimulate your body's natural production of elastin and collagen, which makes the skin taut and supple. Your session will probably last around 30 – 90 minutes based on your treatment plan. As soon as your procedure is over, you can resume your regular activities. The affected areas may look red or irritated, and it's possible for the skin to feel uncomfortable; however, any swelling will likely disappear quickly. When you have your appointment at iContour Anti-Aging Center, our team will let you know the best ways to protect your skin at home. Because elastin and collagen production takes some time, you can expect to see your best results after a few months that last a long time!
RF Skin Tightening FAQ
How many treatments will I need to achieve the look I want?
The correct number of sessions will depend on the original health of your skin, as well as your goals. During your exam, one of our experienced team members will inquire about your needs and goals in order to establish how many appointments are suitable for you.
How soon do you see the results of RF skin tightening?
Some patients see results almost immediately or within days. But generally, most can expect to start seeing more noticeable results after a second treatment about four weeks after the first. These benefits will continue to improve as the natural production of collagen in the skin works to tighten and improve the skin. Optimal results are typically achieved around 12 weeks.
Can I have RF skin tightening with other treatments?
Absolutely. RF skin tightening can be done as a standalone procedure or to supplement additional treatments. It's common for patients to decide to receive RF skin tightening along with additional minimally invasive treatments.
Does RF skin tightening hurt?
At iContour Anti-Aging Center, we do all we can to make sure you feel comfortable during your treatment.
