Are Radiofrequency Treatments Safe for the Skin?
Those longing for youthful-looking skin have several options, from skin-renewing facials to surgical procedures. One non-surgical method quickly gaining traction uses radiofrequency technology to quickly and comfortably tighten skin to help restore its youthful appearance, without scars or downtime. So what is radiofrequency treatment, and is it safe?
What Is Radiofrequency Treatment?
Radiofrequency treatment has been the anti-aging treatment of choice for many women for almost two decades, but it has recently gained more widespread popularity as more and more women have experienced its benefits. The procedure involves heating the deepest layers of skin using a very small amount of energy to encourage collagen and elastin production and cell turnover. This can result in firmer, thicker skin and a more youthful appearance. Radiofrequency can improve skin tone and structure at a deeper level, whereas skin renewal treatments that use lasers target the skin’s surface. Naturally, some women have questions about the safety of using heat energy to help enhance their appearance.
Safety of Radiofrequency Treatment
Skin-tightening procedures use waves emitting a tiny fraction of the energy used for X-rays and other purposes. They’re also highly controlled. Experienced providers use state-of-the-art equipment to target specific tissue to minimize the risk of burns from overheating. The Food and Drug Administration has cleared this technology, and clinical studies have indicated that the procedure is safe for a variety of uses, including body contouring and vaginal rejuvenation.
