About RF Skin Tightening Treatment at Ambrosia Clinic in Hyderabad

RF Skin Tightening is typically done as follows:

  • The face is cleansed and a conductive gel is applied to the skin area to be treated.
  • The RF device is placed on the skin and the ultrasound energy is delivered to the targeted area.
  • The ultrasound energy penetrates the skin and heats up the deep tissue layers, thereby stimulating collagen production and causing the skin to tighten and lift.

What to expect from the procedure:

  • Time: Typically takes about 30 to 60 mins (depending on the size of the skin area).
  • Post-procedure: The skin may have some mild redness and swelling, but this subsides within a few hours
  • Recovery time: Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.

One needs to keep in mind that the results may vary depending on the individual’s skin tone, general health and severity of skin laxity. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results. The effects of the treatment may last up to 6 to 12 months.
