Radiofrequency in Cosmetic Dermatology
Many of us have gotten photodamage—deterioration from sun exposure of the skin, such as wrinkles, roughness, and discoloration—from spending too much time outdoors. Despite the health benefits that spending time outside has for us, our skin can certainly get the short end of the stick.
Fortunately, due to modern technology, there are many ways to fight back. In fact, dermatologic technology has recently come up with novel solutions that can help reverse sun damage to your skin. Radiofrequency (or RF) is a new nonablative—meaning that it is noninvasive and it leaves the surface of the skin intact—treatment that dermatologists use in order to target photodamage directly. Not only that, but it can also tighten lax skin and is effective in improving the appearance of cellulite. (Who can beat that?) This type of treatment uses gentle energy currents rather than a light source to stimulate natural collagen production, in a safe and effective way for all skin types.
If sun damage to your skin over the years has caused you embarrassment and self-consciousness, nonablative radiofrequency could be the answer to your prayers. Since it is a new development in cosmetic dermatology, nonablative radiofrequency has recently been tested many times. All tests have concluded that this treatment is a safe, tolerable, and effective procedure for any and all skin types. The treatment also continues to work well over time, giving you the skin that you have always wanted.
For those of you that have been dreaming of treating the damage that the sun has inflicted on your skin but just don’t have the time to deal with recovery after a serious procedure, nonablative radiofrequency is for you. This safe and effective treatment can have you looking better in just days.
