Have you noticed a sagging of your jowls as you age? The natural aging process means that your body’s production of collagen and elastin decreases. This combined with genetics, diet, exercise habits, and other factors can lead to sagging of the skin around the jowls. You may notice that your cheeks lose volume while the skin seems to slide downward. You may also notice that you have deep nasolabial folds, a double chin, or other features of unattractive jowls that can make you look much older. Now there is a treatment that specifically addresses these issues.
How Radiofrequency Works
Radiofrequency treatments are now available to firm and tighten the skin around the jowls to eliminate deep folds, double chins, and firm and tighten skin to take years off of your appearance. The radiofrequency energy is directed beneath the skin using small probes. This thermal heating of the skin prompts the reversal of skin laxity, or the ability of the skin to be tight and firm.
Safe and Effective
Radiofrequency energy is being used in a number of ways in the medical and cosmetic worlds. This energy is deemed completely safe, and it is also extremely effective. Treatments are comfortable and short with no downtime or recovery time necessary. There are usually no side effects from this procedure, and it is minimally invasive. Results can begin to be seen immediately, with results improving over the course of time. Results usually last at least a few years between treatments.
