How Long Will Skin Be Tight After RF Skin Tightening?

By: Cory Gaiser, M.D.


Although nonsurgical cosmetic treatments can often be completed within minutes and require little to no downtime, many patients have concerns that they’ll have to sacrifice long-lasting results for these conveniences. In reality, many nonsurgical treatments and procedures can produce gorgeous outcomes that last for several years or longer. At New Body Aesthetics in Cincinnati, OH, board-certified physician Dr. Cory A. Gaiser is committed to helping patients achieve beautiful, natural-looking, enduring results they can be proud of with a wide range of nonsurgical skin and body treatments, including radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening. Review the information below to learn more about what you can expect with RF skin tightening, including where this exciting technology can be used and how long your taut new look will last.

What causes loose skin?

One of the primary causes of loose skin is the breakdown of collagen fibers, which occurs naturally over time. In addition, the body’s production rate of new collagen and elastin slows with age, further contributing to skin laxity. Combined with sun exposure, stress, genetics, and other factors, a dwindling supply of collagen can lead to loose skin, lines, and wrinkles across the face and body.

What is RF skin tightening?

RF skin tightening at New Body Aesthetics is performed with the cutting-edge Opus® system. This popular treatment is noninvasive and works by delivering targeted radiofrequency energy to heat the tissues, stimulate collagen production, and tighten up loose skin.

Where can RF skin tightening be used?

RF skin tightening with Opus is extremely versatile and offers patients the opportunity to get firmer, more youthful-looking skin virtually from head to toe. Common treatment areas for Opus RF skin tightening include:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Under the chin
  • Decolletage
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs

Is RF skin tightening permanent?

It is important to keep in mind that virtually nothing – including cosmetic surgery – can halt the natural aging process. However, it may be possible to delay the progression of skin laxity with certain treatments and procedures, including RF skin tightening. While the longevity of RF skin tightening results will vary based on the patient’s degree of skin laxity and other factors, most men and women can expect their outcome to last for an average of 12 – 18 months. When combined with complementary treatments, a healthy lifestyle, and a dedicated skin care routine, some patients can enjoy the effects of RF skin tightening for up to 2 – 3 years.

During your initial consultation for RF skin tightening in Cincinnati, OH, Dr. Gaiser will evaluate the severity of your skin concerns, explain the skin tightening process in detail, and determine a realistic treatment timeline for you. In addition, Dr. Gaiser will discuss how many RF skin tightening sessions you may need and how long you can expect your personal results to last.
