As your skin ages, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and collagen production decline. Over time, skin can become lax, making you look older. If you’ve noticed the skin on your face or other parts of your body starting to sag, you might want to consider radiofrequency (RF) treatment at Colorado Skin and Vein.
About Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
RF therapy has been around for several decades and it is an effective treatment to combat the aging process. It encourages the skin to produce more of the factors that make it look youthful, reversing both laxity and wrinkles.
RF skin tightening works by concentrating waves of electromagnetic energy into the deep layers of your skin, heating them to between 152 F -158 F. The skin responds by producing heat-shock proteins which then create a signal cascade that stimulates the production of more collagen fibers. After several treatments, the target area looks tighter and more youthful.
Average Cost for RF Skin Tightening Treatments
According to Healthline.com, the price of skin tightening treatment using RF therapy can range between $1,000 and $4,000, depending on the area of your body you intend to treat. Insurers consider radiofrequency skin tightening treatments a cosmetic therapy and, therefore, do not usually cover fees.

Factors That Will Influence Final Pricing
Several factors further influence the final price of a skin-tightening procedure. These include:
Geographic Location of Your Provider
Patients seeking treatment in coastal, urban areas on both seaboards will likely pay more for treatment than those in rural or Midwestern locations. Fees are highest where the cost of living is greatest.
The Expertise of Your Provider
The experience of your provider will also play a role. Cosmetic surgeons and Certified Aesthetic Nurse Practitioners with specific training in RF skin tightening treatments are comparatively rare, which pushes up the price of their services. Finding an experienced provider is an important step in getting your desired results. Colorado Skin and Vein has these specially trained providers.
Your Ultimate Goals and Treatment Plan
Lastly, the cost of RF treatment depends on your goals. Patients concerned mainly about their complexions are likely to pay less, for instance than those looking to address their abdomen because the treatment region is smaller.
Likewise, patients receiving fewer treatment sessions won’t pay as much as those looking for more.
