Couture Specifics

Radio frequency (RF) skin rejuvenation, also referred to as “skin tightening”, is considered one of the biggest breakthroughs for the anti-aging market. Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, and dermatologist, Dr. Candace Spann, offer skin tightening with the advanced vShape by Alma Lasers. This procedure works differently from other laser technologies by penetrating deeper into the skin to make improvements to surface wrinkles. The vShape radiofrequency workstation is a body treatment device that treats cellulite, stretch marks, and tightens the skin for a softer, smoother appearance. RF skin tightening is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, the mid-face and neck. It is appropriate for individuals in their 30’s to 50’s and is suitable for most skin types and colors.

Procedure Process

Radio frequency skin rejuvenation heats the skin to the optimum temperature to stimulate the production of collagen. The practitioner will mark the targeting areas, apply a cool gel to the surface of the skin, and gently roll the skin with a small circular hand piece that emits RF waves. Radio frequency skin rejuvenation can be used on the face, neck, stomach, upper inner arms, legs, thighs and buttocks. In areas such as the legs, the treatment is performed to treat cellulite imperfections, while loose skin and surface wrinkles are targeted in the facial regions.

What To Expect

All radio frequency skin treatment sessions are performed in an accredited surgical facility. No discomfort is felt throughout the surgery, although the patient will feel the skin heating.  Although redness and minor tingling in the treated areas are common, patient’s undergoing this treatment can resume normal activity quickly. Results start appearing within a few hours of treatment, and the full effect typically shows within in a few months and may last for 2 full years.

Expected Cost

The cost of RF skin rejuvenation varies depending on the areas being treated as well as the optimal number of sessions required to attain the desired results. On average, the cost is about $300-500 per treatment area.  For full regional areas such as the face or stomach, the price can average between $2,500-$5,000.

RF Skin Rejuvenation FAQs

Ideal Candidates?

Radio frequency skin rejuvenation is a procedure that improves loose skin and wrinkles. It is not a treatment for weight loss, and does not necessarily affect the texture or surface irregularities like pigmentation, discoloration or age spots. Individuals who are not comfortable with a surgical procedure such as a facelift but still hope to slow down the visible signs of aging, likely benefit from this technique. Patients with excessive loose and sagging skin will be better candidates for a body contouring procedure.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results following radio frequency skin rejuvenation can last up to 2 years. Like many other non-invasive anti-aging skin treatments, RF treatment can be repeated per your practitioner’s discretion. Due to reasons like this, RF treatment has become a popular choice among both patients and cosmetic surgeons.

How Many Treatments?

This depends on the condition of your skin, the results you wish to attain, age and the size of the area being treated. In general, it could take as few as 4-6 treatments for the face, and upwards of 10-15 treatments for the body. For optimal results, ongoing maintenance sessions are recommended.

Isn't This Similar To A Lift?

While it is sometimes touted as a liquid facelift, the honest answer is no. While RF treatment stimulates collagen and tightens underlying structures, which result in a firmer skin appearance, a surgical facelift will produce a more dramatic effect. Patients may want to consider a treatment such as radio frequency skin rejuvenation prior to undergoing a surgical procedure.
