Nonablative RF Treatments Increase Skin Elasticity
At three months post-treatment, patients who underwent nonablative radiofrequency -based procedures had better skin elasticity when compared to baseline. Researchers Anna Erkiert-Polguj, MD, PhD, et al, of the Medical University of Lodz in Lodz, Poland, treated 30 women with nonablative RF. Biomechanical properties of the skin were analyzed at baseline and three months post-treatment using a cutometer. Results showed a statistically significant improvement in elasticity between measurements taken at baseline and three months postprocedure.
The study was published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology .
