What is Skin Tightening with Radiofrequency?
As we age, our skin loses its collagen and elastin from years of sun exposure as well as the natural aging process. This gives the skin an unwanted crepey or saggy appearance. For many years effective skin tightening procedures have been elusive.
Tightening skin requires collagen stimulation and this can be achieved with lasers, ultrasound, and now radio frequency. Technology has continued to advance but older treatments such as ultrasound and lasers have been painful and only moderately effective. Now, with radiofrequency skin tightening with Forma and EVOLVE, you can have great results with no pain or downtime.
The most common areas to use EVOLVE are the arms, legs, and abdomen, while the Forma is used on the more delicate areas of the face. Most other areas of the body that you are experiencing laxity can also be treated.
EVOLVE is the most advanced and newest technology for skin tightening on the body. It uses radiofrequency delivered to different layers of the skin to heat and stimulate collagen thereby tightening the skin. The EVOLVE procedures places up to eight applicators on the skin at one time to simultaneously deliver the tightening to multiple areas at once. After 30-45 minutes the applicators are removed and can be used to treat other areas of the body if desired in another session.
The Forma Procedure
Janiga MD’s is honored to be able to offer the most advanced noninvasive tightening technology currently available for their Reno patients, radiofrequency tightening with Forma. Forma is bipolar radiofrequency which delivers heat and radio frequency synergistically to the skin on the face and neck to provide maximum tightening with no pain and no downtime. This advanced technology has been revolutionary for noninvasive skin tightening.
Forma is a new skin tightening technique to replenish collagen and elastin.
At Janiga MDs, Dr. Timothy Janiga specializes in plastic surgery and Dr. Jennifer Janiga specializes in dermatology, giving their practice a unique, comprehensive perspective on their patients’ cosmetic needs in the Reno, Nevada area.
Recovery & Results
This procedure does not require any topical numbing as it is painless; you will feel a slight warming sensation of the skin as the wand is applied to the treatment zone. There’ll be some redness of the treated skin afterward, but no downtime is associated with this treatment.
As with most non-invasive procedures, a package of treatments is recommended. As we lose collagen as we age, you may desire to repeat treatments in the future to maintain your results.
