Introduction to RF Skin Tightening
Over time, our skin shows the effects of aging. Our skin loosens up because it loses certain proteins (collagen and elastin) that make your skin naturally firm. This leads to wrinkles, saggy skin, and a crepey appearance on your face, neck, and hands.
At Dr. K Beauty, we want to help you regain your youthful appearance with the help of an incredibly safe and increasingly popular procedure called Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Tightening.
What is Radiofrequency?
While Plastic Surgery is always an option, Radiofrequency (RF) Treatment is a non-invasive procedure that can be done in the comfort of our Boutique. By using electrodes to deliver an electromagnetic current at a radiofrequency of 448kHz, your tissue temperature is gradually increased. This rising temperature triggers your body’s natural regeneration, repair, and defense responses.
Who are the Best Candidates for skin tightening using Radiofrequency?
At Dr. K Beauty, we believe that anyone who is experiencing sagging skin, increased skin lines, bags and/or wrinkles, or just trying to plumpen their face is a great candidate for Radiofrequency Therapy. This treatment can do wonders for any man or woman that wishes to sculpt trouble spots without pain or long periods of downtime.
As with any procedure, you should be living a relatively healthy lifestyle and maintain realistic expectations from the treatment.
What are the Benefits of skin tightening using Radiofrequency?
Two of the most visible benefits of the RF Treatment are that it can give you tighter skin and a smoother surface (i.e. fewer wrinkles). In addition to giving you a more youthful appearance, RF also can improve sun damage, with studies showing significant improvements after just 3 months of treatment.
In addition, Dr. K has also noticed the following benefits with the RF Treatment in her patients:
- Facial Contouring – RF tightens your skin which gives your contours a toned, firm, youthful-looking skin. It can also be used to tighten the sags between your nose and mouth, bags and wrinkles under and above your eyes, or any drooping brow lines
- Gradual Improvements to your face – The treatment produces new collagen and elastin which gives old and damaged skin a newer, healthier appearance. Although you won’t see drastic changes following your first session, if you choose to continue your treatments, you will notice a huge difference over time.
- Softens fine lines
- Increases Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – working in tandem with collagen and elastin, HA is one of the unsung heroes of skincare. The HA molecules naturally attract and bind to water molecules which gives your skin a natural moisture barrier that reduces fine lines and wrinkles, soothes redness, and helps your skin look plumper
This treatment also provides long-lasting results, can be completed quickly, and is considered by most to be relaxing and pain-free.
Radiofrequency used post Surgery
RF Treatment also works wonderfully when used post-surgery. Some of the advantages are:
- The rapidity of the treatment
- Nearly bloodless field
- Minimal postoperative pain
- Rapid healing
The use of radiofrequency cuts without pressure, needing only a “feather-like” touch, which minimizes tissue damage – any tissue damage that does occur is very superficial.
Reduce fat with Radiofrequency INDIBA
Although RF isn’t specifically a “weight-loss” treatment, it can reduce the amount of fat which can result in some weight loss. Using non-thermal and thermal actions, the INDIBA® treatment triggers biological responses within the body that can lead to fat reduction and tissue regeneration.
What to Expect on the Day of Skin Tightening Treatment Using RF?
During your treatment, Dr. K will use the INDIBA® on your targeted area. This generates a superficial warmth that is described as a pleasant experience. The whole process will take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment you are receiving.
What’s the First Step?
If RF Skin tightening is something that interests you, the first step is to schedule your consultation with Dr. K. During this consultation, Dr. K will be able to give you a more in-depth explanation of how the treatment INDIBA® tool works, as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have prior to your appointment.
Skin Tightening Recovery
Since this procedure is non-invasive and done in our own office, the recovery is very minimal and typically quick. You may experience some mild redness, slight tingling, and/or soreness within the first 24 hours of your treatment, the symptoms should subside rather quickly. Some patients have experienced pain or blistering, albeit it is very rare.

RF Skin Tightening FAQ’s
What device does Dr. K use for Radiofrequency?
Dr. K uses the latest in RF Technology. INDIBA® Deep Care is used for primary treatment, and when integrated into your cosmetic treatments, it enhances results and improves the total patient experience. The technology is safe, versatile, comfortable, and very intuitive for medical professionals to use.
Does Radiofrequency Hurt?
No. While you may feel an unnatural warming sensation, RF Treatment is considered very pleasant by many. If are experiencing any discomfort during your session, please inform Dr. K so she can make any needed adjustments.
When will I see the results? Are they Permanent?
You should begin seeing results as soon as you finish your first session. Unfortunately, due to the body’s natural response to time, sun exposure, and daily routine, the results aren’t permanent. Depending on the area being treated, most patients see results lasting between 3 and 6 months, with more sessions providing lengthier aesthetic results.
Thankfully, there is no limit to the number of sessions you can receive. If you ever feel like the results are beginning to fade, you can always schedule another appointment.
How many sessions will I need?
Depending on the type of treatment you are receiving, you may need 2 to 3 treatments to gain the most from the procedure. Chronic conditions may require additional sessions for maximum results. Dr. K will be able to give you a better idea of how many sessions you will need during your consultation, as well as assess your progress after each session.

I love coming here and honestly I trust Dr. K completely. She is reasonable and fair in her pricing. She is extremely professional and goes out of her way to help you with whatever you need.
Truly amazing! I highly recommended Dr. K she is professional and experienced. I am thrilled with her work. Her knowledge and her honesty had me feeling very comfortable and all that I asked for. No pressure and all is explained before anything is done. Her staff is also very knowledgeable and comforting. You can't go wrong with an experienced doctor!
Dr. K was fabulous. She was very informative on the areas I needed fillers in and what would work best for me. I saw immediate improvement and am so happy with the results. I will definitely return and also refer her to my friends/family. I’ve been a resident of NV for 18 years and have yet to find an injector I like. I’m thrilled to have finally found one. She’s a keeper.
