Couture Specifics RF Skin Tightening
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 / Jul 13, 2020
"Thank you Dr. Marvin Spann for the wonderful job you did on my breast surgery and Liposuction!!! The results far exceed any expectation I held! I look and feel amazing!!! My clothes fit better, I carry myself more confidently, and I'm constantly receiving compliments on how I look. Friends and coworkers can't pinpoint the reason, and they can't get over how great I look ;) I started offering to show my breasts to everyone after surgery because I was so happy with, and proud of, the results!!! Dr. Spann's is phenomenal! Every single person who has seen my breasts, post surgery, both clothed and unclothed is floored. The comment I get most is "They look real!". Can't get better than that! Dr. Spann was attentive and his perfectionist nature meant every detail was thought about and my breasts were perfectly executed. I did not experience too much pain and was back to work (being mindful) a week later!!! I was worried that because of my liposuction I would be badly bruised and have significant pain (a friend had it done 6 months earlier (NOT BY Dr. Spann) and she was bruise beyond recognition and in pain for weeks and weeks following her procedure)). My experience could not have been more different! My bruising was minimal, as was my pain. The compression garment that I was given allowed for using the restroom without having to take it on and off, which is brilliant and saved me a lot of discomfort! The results? Wow! WOW!!! For me it was transformative both physically and mentally! I now wear skinny jeans, something that would have NEVER happened before. Finally, thank you to the wonderful staff for their professionalism and skill in making my journey through this process, effortless. The office is beautiful. You are greeted as you walk through the door by the lovely reception team. Everyone I interacted with was kind, patient and available throughout the process beginning to end. They were never bothered to answer questions and always returned calls promptly."- N.B. / Yelp / Apr 12, 2020
"Wonderful service from initial consultation to follow up post-op. Dr. Spann is kind, helpful and professional and made me feel more than comfortable throughout the entire process. I highly recommend him and his team for their service and exceptional work. I am thrilled with my results and thankful to them!"- C.C. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2020
"Dr Spann is one of the most compassionate doctors I have met in a long time. And as a chronic illness patient - I see A LOT of doctors. She is knowledgeable beyond just dermatology. She spent time with, answered all of my questions, and promised to get to the bottom of a very complex health issue I have going on. She is willing to confer with many other doctors to figure this out and instead of writing me off or passing me along (like every other doctor has in town, she’s offering different paths to get to the answer. She said we won’t stop til we figure this out. She is so much more than just a dermatologist! Her staff was exceptional (esp. Lydia) as well, very communicative and helpful. I can’t thank my friend enough for recommending me to her. It’s hard to find rare gem doctors like her!"- N.B. / Google / Mar 05, 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
RF Skin Tightening 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 with RF Skin Tightening
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.
RF Skin Tightening 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
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.
