Loose, saggy skin can affect any area. The most bothersome areas include the eyelids, jowls, neck, arms, thighs and abdomen. By the time we are 25 years old, we begin to lose collagen and elastin which give skin its structure and support. Ultraviolet radiation from sunlight, exposure to environmental pollutants, cigarette smoke and blue light from computers and cell phones all accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin and lead to loss of firmness and sagging. Fluctuations in weight and pregnancy can cause stretching and looseness of the skin, particularly on the abdomen.

An effective, non-surgical treatment to tighten and firm saggy skin for a more youthful appearance is radio frequency skin tightening from our Toronto practice.

  • How does radio frequency skin tightening work?

The radio frequency delivers pulses of heat that penetrate deeply into the skin to tighten existing collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen.

  • How does the treatment feel?

With each pulse, there is a cold sensation followed by a brief heating sensation, and then cold again. The cold protects the surface of the skin and allows the heat to penetrate deeply.

  • Is it uncomfortable?

Most individuals experience some discomfort so a mild oral analgesic is recommended.

  • Is there any downtime?

Typically, there is no downtime and you can resume normal activities immediately. Rarely, a small blister or crust can occur and lasts a few days.

  • How long does it take to see results?

Initial results can be seen within a few weeks but it can take 3 to 6 months to see the full benefit of the treatment. Results usually last 1 to 2 years and the treatment can be repeated at that time.
