Skin Tightening Q & A

Why Radio Frequency (RF)?

Radio Frequency energy treatments have been FDA-cleared to help you look and feel more youthful and refreshed. These advanced radiofrequency energy therapies gently heat your skin to the deepest layers, which stimulates your existing collagen to tighten. It also promotes the development of new collagen.

Collagen is an important protein compound in your skin responsible for firmness and strength. These RF therapies are especially beneficial for facial treatments including:

  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Lines on the forehead or between the eyebrows
  • Loose skin above or below the eye
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jowls
  • Thin, crepey skin on the neck

To learn if you could benefit from Pellevé skin-tightening, consult with Dr. Riehm.

How many Radio Frequency treatments will I need to see results?

Patients often see results after just one treatment. To get maximum benefit, we normally recommend 1 treatment per decade of your age. For example, if you are in your 40’s, we would recommend 4 treatments spaced about one month apart. Dr. Riehm and her team will offer a customized plan that is tailored to your skin’s health and your aesthetic goals.

Why should I choose Skin Deep Laser MD’s Radio Frequency treatments over other skin-tightening treatments?

These RF therapies are gentle, comfortable treatment with real results. It offers the following advantages:

  • No pain and no downtime
  • Proven safety profile
  • Short sessions, some areas as little as 30 minutes
  • Safe for all skin types and tones
  • Ability to treat the eye area, including the delicate skin under the eye
  • Significantly lower cost

Radio Frequency offers a safe, pleasurable, more complete and more customizable treatment at a lower cost than other skin-tightening technology.

Who is a candidate for Firm?

Men and women can both benefit from the skin-tightening treatments on the body, called FIRM. It can reduce the dimpled appearance of cellulite on the body. The best candidates have flexible skin and are in good health overall. Dr. Riehm and her staff will go over your entire medical history, current health status and aesthetic goals to determine if FIRM treatments are right for you.

Do FIRM treatments have any side effects?

FIRM treatments don’t cause pain during a treatment session and there’s no damage to the outer layers of your skin. They feel like a nice, warm rock massage! The only side effect is possible redness right after treatment. This subsides within a few hours.

What is FlexSure®?

FlexSure is a radiofrequency body treatment that provides deep, even tissue heating. The peel & stick applicator curves and conforms to your body to reach those hard-to-treat areas. Common treatment areas include abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs, and knees, and have been described as a gentle hot stone massage.

Is FlexSure Right For Me?

The FlexSure applicator can be used on any skin type, any time of year, with no BMI restrictions. FlexSure has multiple applicator sizes that allow for non-invasive and customized treatments. Since FlexSure requires no downtime, you can return to your daily activities immediately.

How many FlexSure treatments will I need?

The amount of treatments required will vary by patient. A minimum of 3 sessions per treatment area is recommended. Each session takes approximately 15 minutes, making FlexSure a great lunchtime treatment. Speak to your provider for a consultation to discuss your target areas and number of sessions required.

When will I see results from FlexSure?

Results can be seen in as little as 3 treatments, but optimal results are seen after a series of 5 treatments.
