Do At-Home RF Skin Tightening Machines Work?
Until recently, radiofrequency was only performed by licensed skin experts and cosmetic doctors. In the past few years a wide array of affordable, non-professional machines have hit the market, making it possible to treat yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Generally speaking, at-home radiofrequency machines only cost between $30 and $1,000 USD, with most falling in the middle of that range. In-office procedures, on the other hand, often start at 1,000 and can go up to $5,000 USD or more, per course of treatments.
A study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology in late 2014 found that more than 90% of test subjects experienced wrinkle reduction and skin tightening after undergoing at-home treatments – as rated by three independent reviewers who were also board-certified dermatologists.
In the study, participants used RF Skin Tightening for at least five treatments a week for one month. The independent reviewers assessed images taken one month before and after the treatment. They also conducted one- and three-month follow-ups with the patients. The RF Skin Tightening Treatment went on to become the first treatment of its kind to be cleared by the FDA as an energy-based, at-home wrinkle reduction device.
Various other studies have found that at-home RF machines can help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, skin laxity around the eyebrows as well as other facial wrinkles and lines. In short, experts confirm that at-home RF treatments can be a convenient and cost-effective way to fight the signs of aging in the comfort of your own home.
