Radiofrequency Q&A

What is radiofrequency?

Radiofrequency, also simply known as RF, stimulates collagen production using energy waves to heat the dermis ​​and subcutaneous tissues (deeper layers of the skin). 

RF treatment is one of the best ways to rejuvenate your facial skin or body because it’s gentle on the skin, and with the Morpheus8 and Forma devices by Inmode™, energy delivery is modulated with the greatest precision and control at all times.

How does radiofrequency work?

 

The Collagen Bar harnesses the power of radiofrequency to tighten and firm your skin while minimizing the appearance of skin imperfections like acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, or other common beauty concerns. 

 

The team uses Morpheus 8 and Forma technology, which are FDA-approved treatments for skin tightening. They are also safe to use on all skin types, including sensitive skin.

 

With radiofrequency treatments, the team combines it with microneedling so you can receive the most benefits. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that creates micro-tears in the top layers of your skin to prompt your body’s natural healing response and promote collagen growth. 

 

The Collagen Bar can perform radiofrequency skin resurfacing on your face or body. The team may perform radiofrequency on your neck, around your eyes, chest, arms, legs, abdomen, or even buttocks.  

What conditions does radiofrequency treat?

 

Radiofrequency can be used to treat a wide range of aesthetic concerns, including:

 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage 
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scarring
  • Sagging skin 
  • Dark circles
  • Large pores

 

Depending on your cosmetic goals, the team at The Collagen Bar can develop a customized treatment plan and maintenance schedule to address your specific areas of concern. 

Does radiofrequency treatment hurt?

 

The Collagen Bar prioritizes your comfort during the treatment process. Prior to radiofrequency treatment, the team can apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment areas to reduce any discomfort. 

 

After your treatment session, you might experience some minor swelling, redness, and tingling, but this is a normal part of the treatment. 

 

Many patients find radiofrequency treatments to be a relaxing and calming process, and their side effects fade away quickly. 

How long will radiofrequency results last?

 

You might find improvements within the first few days* after receiving radiofrequency treatment. However, you may not see the full results until three weeks* later. Most patients will find continued improvements within three months* following their session. 

 

The Collagen Bar recommends taking care of your skin after radiofrequency treatment by wearing sunscreen and protecting it from sun exposure.
