What are Radio Frequency Cosmetic Treatments?
It is very common to see patients at the Stockton Dermatology in Phoenix, AZ who come in wanting to get that svelte figure or slim down excess fat in certain problem areas. As a solution, we are offering radio frequency body treatments for our patients.
Radio frequency body treatments are procedures that involve the use of a radio frequency device that heats up the tissue. This results in tightening the tissue and boosting blood flow that breaks down the stubborn cellulite and fat. Our patients need not worry, because radio frequency energy heats up the skin without causing any damage. This heating action is proven to break down fat and cellulite as well as trigger collagen production that tones the skin and improves its elasticity. We highly recommend the use of radio frequency treatments for our patients in Phoenix, AZ to remove excess pockets of fat in the hips, thighs and in the stomach. This also works best in reducing cellulite and tightening the saggy skin that could have been a result of drastic weight loss and of pregnancy. Radio frequency treatments are also found to be effective in removing fine lines and wrinkles. These procedures to be safe and effective and patients have very minimum downtime after undergoing treatment.
What are the different types of Radio Frequency Treatments?
The Stockton Dermatology offers radio frequency treatments for all your body needs, from head to toe. Below are the radio frequency treatments that we offer to our patients in Phoenix, AZ:
- LamProbe – uses high frequency technology to rapidly treat minor skin conditions such as telangiectasia, cherry angiomas, spider naevi, fibromas, hyper pigmentation, skin tags, milia, acne, and cholesterol deposits. The treatment is very quick and does not touch the skin’s surface.
- Fractora Rejuvenation and Resurfacing – this procedure delivers radio frequency energy through micro pins which results in the stimulation of collagen growth that improves the general appearance of the skin. This treatment works best for smoothing fine lines, treating pigment irregularities, and rejuvenation of the entire face (upper and lower eyelid, lines in the mouth, neck, and cheeks).
- FractoraFirm – delivers radio frequency deep into the skin to trigger the production of collagen and elastin that improves the elasticity and suppleness of the skin over time. This is recommended for patients who want smoother, tighter and clearer skin with an even tone and texture. Fractora Firm targets the aging of the skin and the neck, and can now treat excess skin on the upper arms, knees and upper neck.
- Electrolysis – a method of removing hair from the face and body using radio frequency energy. This works by destroying the growth center of the hair, thereby inhibiting its growth. Unlike IPL and laser treatments, electrolysis targets the condition from its source which makes it an effective treatment for removing unwanted hair.
