Edmonton’s Radio Frequency Facelift
A non-invasive procedure that remodels the body and tightens the skin without the use of needles is a Radiofrequency facelift. The method is well-known for skin tightening, with patients noticing a difference before and after the procedure. The most common areas treated are under the eyes, the forehead, cheeks, jawline, mid-face, and neck. After treatment, patients will notice an improvement, depending on the current radio frequency technologies.
What is a radiofrequency facial, and how does it work?
The radiofrequency facial is a non-invasive procedure that tightens and renews the skin using advanced equipment. It’s ideal for people who don’t want to go under the knife. The procedure is painless and does not require a scalpel or needles. It improves the skin’s overall appearance and helps to slow down the aging process.
What is the mechanism of action of the treatment?
The treatment employs a technology that heats a portion of the skin, causing collagen production to increase. The regrowth of elastin and collagen is stimulated during a radiofrequency facelift, giving volume to the skin’s wrinkled, dry, and flabby areas.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a radiofrequency facelift?
- Firmer skin
- nasolabial grooves are narrowed

How long does it take for a Radiofrequency Facelift to heal?
After the treatment, some patients experience redness, but this goes away quickly. In addition, most patients can resume their normal activities following the procedure. We may also instruct you to apply soothing creams, lotions, or gels to the treatment area. The creams will keep the area moisturized and cool.
Are there any drawbacks or dangers?
When the radiofrequency energy is delivered to any underlying tissue, you will experience deep and brief heating sensations. Some devices have a cryogenic capability, which means that during the Radio Frequency burst, the handpiece releases a cooling spray. The cooling effect will make the procedure more comfortable for you and protect your skin from the heat.
After the procedure, what should you do?
After treatment, you don’t need to take any special precautions. Your doctor (or injection-certified pharmacists) may, however, recommend the following:
- After the treatment, apply a light layer of moisturizing or soothing lotion.
- Apply ice packs or cool water rinses to the area that has been treated.
