Those longing for youthful-looking skin have several options, from skin-renewing facials to surgical procedures. One non-surgical method quickly gaining traction uses radiofrequency technology to quickly and comfortably tighten skin to help restore its youthful appearance, without scars or downtime. So what is radiofrequency treatment, and is it safe?
What Is Radiofrequency Treatment?
Radiofrequency treatment has been the anti-aging treatment of choice for many women for almost two decades, but it has recently gained more widespread popularity as more and more women have experienced its benefits. The procedure involves heating the deepest layers of skin using a very small amount of energy to encourage collagen and elastin production and cell turnover. This can result in firmer, thicker skin and a more youthful appearance. Radiofrequency can improve skin tone and structure at a deeper level, whereas skin renewal treatments that use lasers target the skin’s surface. Naturally, some women have questions about the safety of using heat energy to help enhance their appearance.
Safety of Radiofrequency Treatment
Skin-tightening procedures use waves emitting a tiny fraction of the energy used for X-rays and other purposes. They’re also highly controlled. Experienced providers use state-of-the-art equipment to target specific tissue to minimize the risk of burns from overheating. The Food and Drug Administration has cleared this technology, and clinical studies have indicated that the procedure is safe for a variety of uses, including body contouring and vaginal rejuvenation.

In the ever-advancing quest to help people look and feel younger, HydraFacial has emerged as one of the best and most versatile facial treatment options available today. HydraFacial is an in-office treatment that can be done in as little as 30 minutes. Unlike other skin treatments, it is almost always a pain-free and even pleasant procedure that can usually be customized for any skin type or desired result.
How HydraFacial Works
HydraFacial uses hydradermabrasion that cleanses, exfoliates, and infuses the skin with serums. The HydraFacial handpiece uses spiralized tips that employ a vortex technology that simultaneously uses water to push dirt and other impurities out of pores while injecting them with boosters. These boosters are highly customizable and can be combined with other treatments to target specific problem areas that the patient wants to be addressed. Best of all, the procedure usually produces results almost immediately and can be done in a relatively short amount of time—without the downtime associated with more intensive laser or chemical procedures.
What HydraFacial Can Treat
One reason for HydraFacial’s popularity is that it can be used for almost all ages, skin types, and areas of concern. It can be effective for deep-cleaning clogged pores for teenagers with acne issues. It’s perhaps most popular among those looking to reduce the appearance of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, or sun damage. It can also typically be safely paired with injectable treatments like Botox or non-ablative laser or light treatments.
