Skin Tightening

Our skin tightening procedures are perfect for those looking to lift and tighten areas such as the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.

What Areas Can Be Addressed with Skin Tightening Treatments?

RF Skin Tightening is available for any part of the body experiencing a loss of elasticity, such as the neck, face, arms, and hands. The face, often the most exposed area of the body, is particularly susceptible to aging effects like sagging skin. Many opt for RF skin tightening to effectively tighten the jowls and jawline, and to diminish the appearance of nasolabial folds that extend from the nose to the mouth. 1st Care Med Spa offers tailored radio frequency skin tightening treatments to address these concerns.















What is a Skin Tightening Treatment?

Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening is a non-surgical treatment that enhances skin firmness and yields a more youthful look. This procedure, available at 1st Care Med Spa, utilizes low-frequency electromagnetic waves to generate heat deep within the skin layers. This heat stimulates the regeneration of skin cells and boosts the production of collagen and elastin, key proteins that enhance skin strength and flexibility. As a result, skin becomes firmer and sagging diminishes, restoring a more youthful contour and texture.

How Does RF Skin Tightening Function?

Radio-frequency (RF) skin tightening is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure that typically completes within an hour or less at 1st Care Med Spa. The duration of the treatment depends on the size of the area being addressed. There's no downtime required, allowing you to return home immediately after the procedure. For a clearer idea of potential results, you can request before and after photos from your provider.


During the consultation phase, the doctor assesses the patient's skin to identify concerns and establish treatment objectives. This may include taking photos to provide a visual comparison of before-and-after results. It's important to inform your doctor about any active skin conditions, medications you are currently using, or if you are pregnant, to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.


When the treatment begins, the practitioner utilizes a handheld device, moving it over the targeted area. This device emits radio frequency waves that heat the skin, initiating a natural healing response that includes the stimulation of collagen production.


RF Skin Tightening works by using radiofrequency energy waves to heat the skin to approximately 104 Fahrenheit. At this temperature, collagen fibers are heated, setting off a cascade of reactions in the body. These reactions lead to overall skin rejuvenation through enhanced blood circulation, skin tightening via tissue retraction, and the stimulation of elastin and collagen production. The result is healthier, plumper, and more youthful-looking skin.


During the treatment, you might experience warmth, a slight tingling sensation, and mild discomfort in the area being treated. It's important to inform your provider immediately if you experience any uncomfortable burning sensations.


The side effects of RF skin tightening are typically minimal, though they can vary depending on the individual and other factors. There is no downtime associated with this treatment, allowing you to return to work immediately afterward. To prepare for and recover from treatment, avoid using exfoliation products for a week before and after your session. It's also recommended to apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for 72 hours post-treatment as your skin heals.
