Forget the Facelift: Tighten Saggy Skin With Non-Invasive Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Tightening

Are you looking to improve your skin tone and take years off your appearance — without the risks and complications of a surgical facelift? Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening could be the solution you’ve been hoping for!

Here at Balboa Medical Center & Spa, located in Encino, California, Dr. Amir Raeesy and our skilled care team pair advanced radiofrequency technology with the magic of microneedling to give you the skin-tightening benefits of a facelift without the surgery! 

Read on to learn more about our innovative skin tightening treatment and whether it’s the right choice for you! 

What is radiofrequency skin treatment?

Radiofrequency skin treatments use radiofrequency energy to gently heat your skin in order to safely and effectively smooth out lines and wrinkles. The heat generated by the treatment stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, rejuvenating and tightening your skin. 

At Balboa Medical Center & Spa, we give you the best outcome possible by optimizing the RF temperature for stimulating collagen production — without overheating your skin. You’ll be amazed to see the beautiful changes in your skin.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling uses tiny needles to create miniature wounds in the surface of your skin. Don’t worry! The needles are so small they don’t hurt or cause any bleeding. But, they do create microscopic wounds that trigger your body’s natural healing process. 

After microneedling, your body sends a signal to the treatment areas to begin the repair process. This healing signal also increases your body’s collagen production, which creates new skin cells giving you a smoother, tighter complexion! 

How does microneedling and RF therapy tighten my skin?

When you combine the power of RF therapy with the effectiveness of microneedling, you’ll be amazed at how much tighter and more evenly toned your skin becomes. 

While we notice the signs of aging on the surface of our skin, the aging process actually takes place below the surface. 

In the middle layers of your skin, collagen and other proteins work together to make new skin cells and repair damage. When you’re young, your body produces lots of collagen, keeping your skin looking young and smooth. Starting in your 20s, your body begins making less collagen, and production drops off significantly as you reach 40. 

Symptoms of declining collagen production include:

Since RF technology and microneedling both stimulate collagen production, your skin takes on a firmer, tighter, more radiant appearance. The new collagen fibers your body creates as a result of treatment are tighter and denser than older ones, helping your skin firm up naturally, without the need for surgery! 

Am I a candidate for RF skin tightening?

Nonsurgical skin tightening is perfect for people with mild to moderate skin laxity (loose skin). It’s a good skin tightening treatment to try if you want to avoid injections, dermal fillers, or cosmetic surgery. 

Candidates for nonsurgical skin tightening should:
