It's an unfortunate truth that beauty doesn't last forever. Several factors affect the loss of our glow, including exposure to pollution and UV rays. But other than these environmental pollutants, there's something else we can't escape — aging. Aside from making lifestyle changes and following a proper skincare regimen, experts recommend undergoing a noninvasive treatment to keep your skin tight, radiant, and young-looking. One procedure stands out: radiofrequency facial.
If you don’t have a high pain tolerance, you don’t have to worry. A radiofrequency facial (RF facial) is noninvasive, which means it doesn’t involve knives or needles. In fact, it causes zero downtime, letting you get straight back to work once the procedure is done. So how does it work and why is it so effective?

Using 38–40 degrees of heat, an RF facial combats aging by boosting collagen and elastin production in the dermis. These two types of protein are responsible for keeping your skin smooth, supple, and firm. What exactly does it do to your skin?
Softens fine lines
Your body’s ability to replenish lost collagen and elastin diminishes greatly as you age. But with an RF facial, those unwanted wrinkles and fine lines will soften, and your youthful glow will be restored. To achieve your desired results, you can ask your licensed esthetician to focus on specific areas of concern.
Immediately tightens skin
An RF facial tightens your cheeks and jawline. Anyone who wears makeup knows that these are the usual spots that need definition or contouring to make the face appear slimmer. Misapplication spells disaster. But with an RF facial, you’ll feel more confident flaunting your skin without heavy contouring that may only do you more harm than good.
Promotes a long-lasting facelift
There are treatments that offer quick but short-lived effects. Imagine spending good money on a procedure that only works for a few days. That’s not the case with an RF facial, as it allows you to enjoy smoother, tighter, and more radiant skin even several weeks after your appointment. That’s because with an RF facial, your skin will continue to produce collagen and elastin long after the actual treatment is done.

Hydrates the skin
As you enter your 20s, your skin tends to lose moisture. Skin experts say that dry skin is most prone to wrinkles, fine lines, cracking, and flaking. Not only does this make your skin look lackluster, but also feel uncomfortable. Thanks to collagen’s moisturizing properties, your skin gets the hydration it needs. Additionally, makeup (especially those in powder form) applied on dry skin will only give it a cakey, textured finish, as they don’t sit well on a rough base.
Improves skin elasticity
Elasticity is the ability of the skin to snap back when stretched. Younger people don’t have to worry about sagging skin, because their skin can go back to its original state after gaining or losing weight. However, as you grow older, the skin tends to sag, and when it does, there’s no turning back. But all is not lost as collagen and elastin can help your skin achieve a tighter structure while keeping it soft and nourished.
