What is Radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency uses targeted radio waves to heat the deepest layer of your skin. This is where collagen and elastin fibers reside.
Heating the dermal layer of our skin to a certain temperature "tricks" our body into thinking it has a sunburn. This heating process causes the body to think it needs to "repair" the area.
Radiofrequency does not cause ANY sunburn like damage! But our bodies don't know that because we tricked it!!! So, our body goes into overdrive producing new collagen to repair the connective tissues. However, since it doesn't have any actual new damage to repair, this process rejuvenates wrinkles and tightens loose skin in areas such as mommy tummy, legs, chest, neck, and arms. (Sculpted Beauty is currently unable to offer services on the face.)
Sculpted Beauty ensures our client's skin is protected during this process. We use specially formulated gels and oils to keep our client's skin at a comfortable temperature without any heating sensations after the treatment.
*Most clients skin is often only slightly warm to the touch during a treatment.*
While clients should not experience any sunburn like effects, the area will be sensitive to sunlight and heat after a treatment. Therefore, excessive sunlight or heat exposure within 24 hours after a treatment is not recommended. We want to keep that collagen production treating our problem area, not something new!
Some slight results should be visible immediately after a session and improve over the next 36 hours. - Collagen takes time to build!

How long will the skin tightening last?
The effects of radiofrequency skin tightening are not as long-lasting as the effects from surgery. But they do last a significant amount of time. Usually, a maintenance session may be needed around 6-8 months after your completed package.
Is it safe for everyone?
RF is safe anywhere on the body, EXCEPT over any metal implants and/or screws etc. If you do have implants, that's fine..we just have to avoid that particular area.
There are much fewer contraindications for RF than other types of Body Contouring.
