It is natural for the skin to develop aging signs such as loose or sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines over time. With cosmetic procedures like radiofrequency treatment in Dubai, you can get rid of these aging signs non-surgically. It is an effective procedure that tightens the skin and makes it youthful by improving collagen production. Due to its non-invasiveness, some people prefer radiofrequency over surgical facelifts.

What is Radiofrequency Treatment?
Radiofrequency for the face & body is an FDA-approved technology that treats aging signs without surgery. The treatment improves the skin’s sagginess with the help of a handheld device using ultrasound technology. The ultrasound waves target the fatty tissues, destroy them, and naturally remove them from the body. As a result, the skin becomes tight, rejuvenated, and firm.
How Does it Work?
The procedure of radiofrequency treatment is safe, quick, and effective. Generally, candidates do not require anesthesia but may request topical anesthesia or numbing creams if they feel pain or discomfort.
The practitioner will use a specialized handheld device to direct radiofrequency waves to the skin during the procedure. The radiofrequency waves heat the deep layer of the skin without damaging the epidermis. As a result, the collagen in your skin tightens and contracts. The RF waves also stimulate new collagen production in the skin. In this way, your skin becomes firm and tight. In addition to this, radiofrequency waves also melt the fat on fatty areas.
Machine We Use
At Euromed Clinic Center, we use the Pollogen Legend device to perform the radiofrequency treatment.
Before getting radiofrequency for skin tightening & rejuvenation, candidates must follow the doctor’s pre-procedure instructions. Some general pre-procedure guidelines are as follows:
- Avoid excessive sun exposure before the treatment.
- Always apply sunscreen when going out.
- Refrain from taking blood thinners, like aspirin.
- Inform the doctor about any allergies or medical conditions.
- Avoid wearing makeup before going for the treatment.
Although radiofrequency for the face & body is non-surgical, candidates should follow some instructions after the treatment. Generally, the practitioner provides a list of dos and don’ts after the treatment. However, some general aftercare guidelines are as follows:
- Avoid direct sun exposure and continue wearing sunscreen for at least 3-4 weeks.
- Refrain from washing the treated area for at least a few hours after the treatment.
- Use cold compresses in cases of swelling.
- Consult the practitioner immediately if something unusual happens
Other Treatable Conditions
Radiofrequency is a broad term, and several specific treatments come under this category. It is mainly used for treating aging signs, but it can also help remove acne scars and cellulite. The two main radiofrequency treatments are as follows:
Radiofrequency for Acne Scars
Several experts use radiofrequency for facial treatments to remove acne scars that cause discomfort and look unattractive on the face. Fortunately, it is possible to treat them with the help of Radiofrequency Treatment for Acne Scars. It is a non-surgical treatment that heals skin tissues at a deeper level and treats acne scars.
Radiofrequency for Double Chin
As mentioned earlier, RF treatment can also melt the excessive fat in your body areas. Therefore, it can be used to eliminate submental fat under your chin that appears like a double chin.
Results & Recovery
Generally, the recovery period is uneventful and short. During the recovery, candidates may feel discomfort, but it is easily manageable with cold compresses.
Radiofrequency treatment in Dubai delivers exceptional results, but not after a single session. Depending on the desired results, patients usually need more than one session. Generally, experts recommend 3-5 sessions for noticeable results.
Radiofrequency Before & After
Radiofrequency Treatment Cost
The price of radiofrequency treatment starts from AED 500 and varies from patient to patient depending on the following factors:
- Doctor’s expertise
- Clinic’s geographical location
- Skin type
- Skin condition
- Number of sessions
- Candidate’s desired results
Therefore, only an expert can determine the exact treatment cost during the initial consultation.
How long does radiofrequency treatment last?
The effects of RF treatment continue to improve over months as the skin generates collagen. The results usually last for six months which means you will require maintenance sessions.
Is radiofrequency treatment harmful?
No, radiofrequency is a safe and effective procedure approved by the FDA to reduce aging signs.
How often should you do RF treatment?
You can retain the results if you consistently get the RF treatment. Typically, it would be best to get RF treatment one to three times a year.
Can radiofrequency damage your skin?
No, the radiofrequency treatment does not cause any damage to the skin. It heats the deep skin layer without causing any harm to the outer layer.
Does radiofrequency melt fat?
Yes, radiofrequency treatment can melt down the fat deposits with heat. For this reason, it is also used for double chin removal.
Does RF work for cellulite?
Yes, a radiofrequency treatment can reduce cellulite that develops under the skin due to fat cell swelling. The occurrence of cellulite makes the skin rough, bumpy, and dimpled, like an orange peel. Pure radiofrequency energy can be used for cellulite reduction treatment.
Does RF cause facial fat loss?
Yes, radiofrequency treatment is also effective for removing facial fat deposits. A study conducted in 2017 has shown promising results of RF for face slimming.
