How to Reduce Marionette lines
Radiofrequency (RF) technology is a non-surgical treatment option for reducing the appearance of marionette lines, which are wrinkles that extend from the corners of the mouth down towards the jawline. RF technology uses heat energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin, which can help to plump up the skin and smooth out wrinkles.
Q: How is the treatment performed?
RF treatments are typically performed using a handheld device that delivers heat energy to the skin. The device is passed over the treatment area, delivering heat to the deeper layers of the skin.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
RF treatments are typically well-tolerated and should not be painful. Some patients may experience a warming sensation or mild discomfort during the treatment.
Q: What are the results?
RF treatment can help to reduce the appearance of marionette lines and improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. Results will vary depending on the individual and the severity of their wrinkles, but most people will notice an improvement in the appearance of their marionette lines after a series of treatments.
Q: How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed will vary depending on the individual and the severity of their marionette lines. Generally, most people will need a series of 3-6 treatments spaced about a month apart for optimal results.
Q: Are there any side effects?
Side effects of RF treatment are generally mild and may include redness, swelling, or tenderness in the treatment area. These side effects should resolve on their own within a few days.
