For nearly 100 years now, doctors and scientists have known that the radiofrequency energy can be harnessed to generate precise streams of heat for medical treatments - particularly to stimulate the body’s natural healing properties.
More recently, those same concepts have morphed into radiofrequency skin tightening treatments that allow skilled practitioners like Dr. Ort to use RF energy waves to add definition and tone to the face and neck. Radiofrequency energy can contract the skin, stimulate collagen production, eliminate fat, and reduce the signs of aging through minimally invasive procedures with little downtime.
For patients interested in radiofrequency skin tightening Bellevue plastic surgeon Dr. Yirae Ort now offers this state-of-the-art procedure at her medical office.
As a facial rejuvenation specialist, Dr. Ort makes sure to stay up to date on the latest technological advancements in face treatment procedures. She is excited to offer her Bellevue and Seattle RF skin tightening patients access to EmbraceRF treatments for the face and neck.
Developed by InMode, EmbraceRF is a system that allows for a variety of treatments based on the premise of using RF energy to eliminate subdermal fat, boost collagen production, and tighten the skin in the face and neck. These procedures are minimally invasive and require very little recovery time while offering patients noticeable results. These treatments may be suitable for those who may not be the best candidates for a surgical lifting procedure or wish to avoid surgery, or for those who have had a facelift already and want to maintain the results by toning the quality of the skin.
What makes EmbraceRF different from other treatments? The secret is in the precise, controllable application of RF energy to multiple layers of the skin, including the subcutaneous fatty layer, the middle dermal layer, and the surface layer of the skin. This customizable and precise application of energy lets Dr. Ort revitalize specific areas of the face and neck using EmbraceRF’s three main applicators: FaceTite, AccuTite, and Morpheus8.
Based on the concept of radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL), FaceTite is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure where a small metal wand (cannula) is inserted into the subdermal layer of the skin. It is used most commonly for contouring and toning the lower face, jawline and the neckline.
There, it delivers a concentrated and precise burst of RF energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This burst of energy has three major benefits:
Most of our Bellevue and Seattle radiofrequency skin tightening patients are cleared to return to work within a week of their procedure - as soon as the swelling goes down. In many cases, the results are seen from 1 - 3 months, with continuous improvement to the area for months after the procedure as the new collagen works its way to the surface and the dissolved fat is naturally processed out of the body.
Similar to FaceTite, AccuTite allows Dr. Ort to apply precise bursts of RF energy beneath the skin to revitalize the body’s collagen production and improve skin elasticity and appearance.
However, AccuTite’s applicator allows Dr. Ort to reach in hard-to-reach areas such as nasolabial folds, jowls, small pockets of fat, and around the eyes.
The recovery process is minimal. Most radiofrequency skin tightening patients report mild swelling and redness that disappear within a matter of days. Because the procedure is minimally invasive and requires only local anesthetic, patients are usually able to drive themselves home following the procedure. However, IV sedation can be utilized for additional comfort for any of these Embrace RF procedures.
Morpheus8 can be performed alone, or in combination with Accutite or Facetite and other radiofrequency skin tightening procedures. Morpheus8, when performed on its own, may require a few treatments to achieve desired effects.
Radiofrequency skin tightening can also be used every two years to maintain youthful results. Depending on the concerns and conditions you want to treat with RF skin tightening Bellevue facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ort can help find the right combination of treatments in the Embrace RF series to help achieve your goals.
Morpheus8 is InMode’s take on microneedling - a procedure that intentionally punctures the skin to stimulate the healing process and bring revitalizing collagen to the surface of the skin. This eliminates fine lines and wrinkles, and can even correct acne scars and some mild pigmentation issues.
Morpheus8 takes this premise to the next level (quite literally). With Morpheus8 Dr. Ort can target areas of the epidermis and dermis with RF energy at specific levels (superficial, intermediate, deep), which can amplify the results of the microneedling process. The combination essentially creates columns of collagen that rise to the surface during the healing process. It is common for patients to receive Morpheus8 to return to work in 1-2 days.
