The expert facial and neck contouring treatments at Santa Fe Skin Institute offer a practical and effective alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery.
What do facial and neck contouring treatments involve?
Santa Fe Skin Institute uses Agnes and Scarlet radiofrequency (RF) technology to perform facial and neck contouring in the comfort of its office.
Agnes and Scarlet deliver radiofrequency energy via specially designed microneedles that penetrate the skin. Your provider can target fatty tissues in the surface layers of your skin or in the deeper layers to produce the required results.
The heat Agnes and Scarlet produce has several effects. It coagulates (melts and destroys) fat cells to reduce areas of excess fatty tissue and stimulates new collagen production to tighten your skin.
The effects vary depending on the number of needles used and the depth to which the energy pulses penetrate. The Santa Fe Skin Institute team has considerable expertise in using both Scarlet and Agnes RF to produce outstanding results through facial and neck contouring treatments.
Is facial and neck contouring painful?
RF facial and neck contouring doesn't require any incisions and causes minimal discomfort at most. The microneedles cause tiny injuries in your skin, which is what triggers your body's healing response and stimulates collagen production. However, the damage is minute and shouldn't be painful.
Your provider can apply a numbing cream before your treatment to ensure you don't feel anything. There's a likelihood of experiencing slight swelling and bruising, but this heals quickly.
How soon do I see results from facial and neck contouring?
Most patients see a noticeable improvement after a single facial and neck contouring treatment. In some cases, such as where there are many different issues to address, you might benefit from two or possibly three sessions to get the best results.
If you're unhappy with the effects of aging on your appearance, facial and neck contouring provides an excellent option. Find out if you're a good candidate for facial and neck contouring by calling Santa Fe Skin Institute or booking an appointment online today.
