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 with Forma by InMode technology and Accent Prime by Alma technology 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.
Forma by InMode is a tissue and skin remodeling technology that works by delivering heat deep into the layers of the skin. With the use of radiofrequency energy, Forma can effectively be used on the face, neck, and upper and lower eyelids. This innovative technology works with a built-in thermal temperature sensor to help our team obtain real-time skin temperatures. It is also safe for use on all skin types.
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 or Forma 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!
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 in around 12 weeks.
Can I have RF skin tightening with other treatments?
Absolutely. RF skin tightening can be performed 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. While most men and women find that this noninvasive procedure doesn’t hurt, we can offer a desensitizing anesthetic ointment to enhance your comfort and ensure that you have the best possible experience.
How long does an RF skin tightening session take?
Typical sessions last about 30 – 90 minutes.
