Can You Tighten Loose Skin? Discover the Power of RF for Skin Tightening
Do you have loose skin after months of intense workouts and diets to achieve your weight loss goals? If you want to tighten loose skin and achieve your total body goal, RF may be the best treatment for you. Skin tightening with RF can give you a healthy and youthful appearance without invasive surgery. For more information, talk to Dr. Wendy E. Roberts, an award-winning dermatologist in Rancho Mirage, CA.
What Is RF?
RF provides patients with body sculpting, skin tightening, and rejuvenation results. The treatment uses an FDA-approved radio-frequency device to eliminate fat and improve skin elasticity. RF effectively treats deposits of stubborn fat, reduces cellulite, and rejuvenates the skin on the face and neck. The treatment is completed in our Rancho Mirage office and requires no downtime.
What Causes Loose Skin?
Pregnancy and weight loss commonly result in loose skin as the volume created by excess fat is lost. Aging can also cause loose skin as the skin’s elasticity is reduced as elastin and collagen are lost. Collagen and elastin repair the skin and help it maintain its elasticity. The face, neck, abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs are parts of the body most commonly affected by loose skin.
How Does Skin Tightening With RF Work?
The treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Wendy E. Roberts. If RF is right for you, we can set up an appointment for your first treatment session. RF skin tightening uses a handheld device administered by a dermatologist. The treatment uses radio-frequency energy to target fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissue.
When the fat cells are heated by the radio-frequency energy from RF, they are destroyed by the process of lipolysis. The body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells as waste. RF can also stimulate repair of the skin In the months following the treatment as the skin produces collagen and elastin. These substances firm and tighten the skin for a smooth and youthful appearance.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated?
RF can be used to rejuvenate skin on the face and neck. Signs of aging can be reduced by eliminating the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as the skin becomes firm and tight. Some common aging signs we repair are around the eyes, cheeks, lips, mouth, neck, and the jawline. RF can also be used to effectively remove stubborn fat and tighten the skin on the body.
This treatment can remove inches from the waistline and remove fat from the flanks, abdomen, back, bra line, chest, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and knees. RF can help you achieve your ideal body type without any invasive surgical procedures.
Can RF Help With Significant Weight Loss?
RF is efficient for removing stubborn pockets of fat in patients who are close to their weight goal. It is also perfect for reducing skin laxity after a weight loss routine, but it is not made for reducing a patient’s weight by a significant amount. For long-lasting results, patients should continue to live a healthy lifestyle after RF treatment to avoid gaining fat in untreated areas.

How Many Sessions Are Needed?
Body sculpting with RF results in permanent fat reduction as the fat cells are destroyed. Tightening of the skin comes from the induction of collagen and elastin, so patients will require routine maintenance treatments to keep their skin youthful. Most patients require between two and three treatment sessions to reach their goals. A single RF treatment can take between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
When Will I See Results?
Body sculpting and skin tightening patients will see improvement in the weeks following each treatment session. Each session is spaced two to four weeks apart, and the final results will be seen approximately two to three months after your final treatment session. This is when collagen and elastin production reaches its peak and the skin is at its tightest. Maintenance sessions for skin tightness will depend on your skin health and age.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
Patients of all ages, genders, and skin tones enjoy tighter, firmer, and more youthful skin with RF. This treatment is recommended for those who are already at their weight goal for treating stubborn fat and skin laxity, but it is not a good option for those looking to lose a significant amount of weight. Patients should not consider RF if they are pregnant or nursing.
How Safe Is RF?
Skin rejuvenation, tightening, and body sculpting results are achieved without surgery, liposuction, lasers, and injections. The treatment will not harm the skin and will not result in any scars. The treatment is painless and you will not experience discomfort. Recovery is quick with no downtime, and most patients return to work or their normal routine immediately.
RF is FDA approved for safety and has a cooling tip to ensure the heat energy that eliminates fat is never uncomfortable. RF provides results similar to a lift procedure without the extensive downtime and without any need to even leave our Rancho Mirage office location.
