Feb 26, 2016 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

Why You Will Care About Radiofrequency

You may not understand a thing about Radiofrequency. Why should you care about it? Below is a summary to help you decide:

If you are interested in having more youthful looking skin, read on. If your expectations are achieving complete results in one visit, Radiofrequency may not be for you. If you are interested in continued improvement of your skin over time with minimal downtime or pain, Radiofrequency is right for you. If you want to improve your skin's appearance without surgery, Radiofrequency is for you.

The value Radiofrequency delivers is recognized in two different ways: 

        1.) A Non-Ablative treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles.

        2.) Provides temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite on the body.


How Radiofrequency Works

Concerning Facial Wrinkles:

  • Radiofrequency technology works by creating heat. Radiofrequency heats tissue to induce collagen contraction and synthesis without damaging the epidermis (outer layer of the skin).
  • Radiofrequency can be performed in about 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the size of the area being treated, and works on any skin type.
  • Radiofrequency can provide long-lasting results with periodic maintenance.
  • Patients report tightened skin and reduced wrinkles, for a younger more refreshed look.

Concerning Body Treaments for Cellulite:

  • Radiofrequency deeply heats the skin, increasing local blood circulation, and feels like a warm massage when performed by a qualified health care professional.
  • Facilitates the movement of excess fluids so it is naturally evacuated by the body's own lymphatic system.
  • Minimal discomfort, little to no downtime, no anesthetic.

Considered an expert in Radiofrequency, Dr. Kassir uses a device that is FDA cleared for these two indications. Radiofrequency requires expert experience to maximize the technological benefits that it can provide.
