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.
"I could not be more pleased with my results. I would recommend Dr. Spann without hesitation."- Anonymous / Other / Mar 29, 2020
"While it is true that I did not leave the office 40 years younger, any thinner and/or smarter, (I really was not actually expecting any magical transformation), it was great. So when I was seen on time, treated well, given excellent consultation and no one made fun of my big big silly sun hat, I began to think I must be loosing my touch at being an insufferable windbag of a patient. Well at least they are giving me the chance to try again at my next visit. Thanks for that."- W.M. / Google / Feb 26, 2020

"I can not say enough about both Dr. Marvin Spann and Dr. Candace Spann. Let's start with Dr. M., I met him 24 hours before my bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction surgery. I don't care for male Dr.'s, will go out of my way not to see them, but when cancers involved, you don't always have a choice. Honestly I'm grateful that he ended up on my side, months of visits, 2 surgeries and I got a beautiful pair of foobs. As far as him blowing off infections, haha I developed one and had more added appointments than I wanted. Now to Dr. C, I originally made an appointment to get my skin checked, and while there she pointed out 3 things, one of which was flared up thanks to one of my medications. I had been suffering for months, my skin and I thank her. Then I went back for Botox and filler, best choice I've made. My husband also sees Dr. C. He had a spot she didn't like, she cut it out and his back looks just fine. I always say there's a reason for everything, so for me cancer added 2 amazing doctors that actually care to my side, and in Vegas that's hard to find."- J.G. / Yelp / Feb 10, 2020
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.
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
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.
