How Often is RF Skin Tightening Needed On the Tummy?
When you think of lines and wrinkles, the first thing that may come to mind is your face – but that’s not the only place wrinkles can develop. For many people, the stomach becomes wrinkled, stretched, or crepey over time. This is often the result of pregnancy or weight loss, but it can also simply be a natural side effect of the aging process. In either case, patients who hope to firm up loose stomach skin without invasive cosmetic surgery may be excited to learn about radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening.
At Dolce Aesthetics™ in Scottsdale, AZ, registered nurse and aesthetic expert Nanette Kaduchak performs RF skin tightening on the face and body to help give patients the more youthful look and boosted confidence they deserve without the risks and extended recovery period associated with surgery. Curious about how long RF skin tightening lasts and how often you may need treatments? Find the answers below.
How does RF skin tightening work?
At Dolce Aesthetics™, RF skin tightening is often combined with microneedling to boost the effects of treatment and give patients an even more dramatic and longer-lasting outcome. Prior to treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the skin’s surface. A handheld roller will then be passed over the skin, making small punctures – called micro-injuries – to the skin’s surface. At the same time, radiofrequency energy will be delivered to the treatment area. This ignites the production of collagen and boosts healing and regenerative processes for a stunning result.
Can you get RF microneedling on the stomach?
Absolutely, RF skin tightening plus microneedling is a popular treatment choice for patients looking to firm up mild skin laxity on the abdomen. Additional treatment areas for RF microneedling and skin tightening include:
- Upper arms
How many RF skin tightening treatments will I need on the stomach?
On average, patients can expect to need a series of about 3 – 4 RF skin tightening sessions spaced about one month apart to achieve their desired result. Some patients may require additional treatments based on the extent of their concerns.
How long does RF skin tightening last?
The longevity of your RF skin tightening results will depend on the degree of your skin laxity at the onset of treatment, your age, your lifestyle, how many treatments were performed, and other factors. For most patients, RF skin tightening provides results lasting up to a year. With repeat rounds of maintenance treatment, however, RF skin tightening can last much longer. In addition to ongoing treatment sessions, patients can maintain or prolong their newly firmed skin with the following RF skin tightening aftercare tips:
- Avoid sun exposure
- Do not smoke
- Eat a healthy diet
- Stay hydrated
- Exercise regularly
- Avoid weight fluctuation
- Keep the skin moisturized and protected from the sun
